I really loved the collaboration aspect of doing the radio shows. It was so great to get to bounce ideas off of others. I think I might have worked harder and thought harder than I would have if I were working on my own because I wanted to keep up with the rest of my group members. I almost wish we were made to meet up with people on a weekly/bi-weekly/every-so-often basis. Like if Groom met with a few people at a time to talk about how things are going. The only thing I wish could have been done differently would have been to have more time together. After the show, Lesya talked about how we split up the final editing into different parts. I liked how that went, but I think it would have been nice for us all to be together while doing it to ask about little choices. One of the harder things for me was facing the sound of my own voice on recording. That’s always weird though, I think. I liked getting the criticisms and comments on twitter and seeing people’s blog posts about the show. I know it wasn’t a perfect show, but I think for our first try at a project like this it was great. And so I guess that’s a wrap for vixen’s ventures.
I listened to Inside Talking tonight and thought it was great! I think working in the sound booth really helped them out. The sound was really clear and there were no distracting background noises. Then they did a “real good” job on their sound effects; it was nothing too over the top, and the audience reactions were perfectly timed. I heard they were doing improv for their show and at first I wasn’t sure about it but it really turned out well! I also am a fan of the talk show idea to include everyone’s characters and get to know them all on a deep level. And I really liked how they tied in the commercials to parts of the story.
watch on tuesday 3-17, it’ll be the second show! for real watch it. bonnie and cleo are amazing criminals and cute to boot! will the vixen vigilante get the jump on them and rescue her stolen painting? tune in tomorrow! or here if you don’t feel like waiting. this has been a psa
For a sketchbook assignment in high school I had to come up with something to do for a free day, and what I made then inspired me to create this assignment! My goal was to practice graphic design without using a computer and putting it in a page of my sketchbook. I was inspired by you-tuber Karen Kavett and her series of graphic design videos. I took out elements from a russian magazine my teacher let me use and laid them out to my own design. I liked using the russian one because it forced me to not care what the words said and focus on the layout. In retrospect I think I could have used more negative space, but I’m still pleased with mine.
