Video Photography Interview: Jim De Koch

For our Video Photography Class, we had to interview someone with an interesting story that we didn’t know personally. One of my former high school teachers knew someone who locally produced a short anti-bullying film called “E.O.B.” E.O.B., which stands for Elizabeth Octavia Baxter, tells the story of that girl who ends up committing suicide as a result of bullying. This is that interview with the film’s writer and director, Jim De Koch.

This was filmed by me with Jim’s DSLR camera and microphone. I edited the interview in Final Cut Pro X.

Animatics Project

This is an animatics project from my film and broadcast preproduction class.  We brainstormed the concept for an ad as a group in class, and then we were tasked with working on the storyboard and animatics for the concept.  The concept is that two people are getting off a train or bus on their way to work.  One has regular water, and the other has Smart Water.  The person with the smart water has a great, stress-free day, while the person with the regular water has everything go wrong.

The drawings and editing were done by me.  This was edited in Final Cut Pro X.

A Brighter Escape – Stronger (Music Video)

One of my side projects is making music under the alias A Brighter Escape (similar to how Adam Young releases music under the alias Owl City).  This is my first music video for the project, and it was also my final project for Video Production and Editing 1.

At the time of writing, you can download the song for free here.  The song, “Stronger”, will be on my upcoming album, Rainbows in the Dark.  For more information about my music, check out abrighterescape.tumblr.com.

[PODCAST] All Rights Reserved – Episode 3: The Myth of Anti-Piracy

All Rights Reserved is an enhanced podcast that advocates for copyright reform that balances the interests of copyright holders and content users. In this episode, we will explore both failed pieces of legislation of SOPA and PROTECT IP, as well as a mildly popular conspiracy theory as to how Internet Piracy became widespread. Also, due to technical difficulties that I mentioned last week, I have last week’s Roundtable discussion in today’s episode.

Here are the links to the content related to the CNET conspiracy theory:
