I’ve been playing with animation timing in these two animated GIFs. I’m trying to find ways to use fewer frames and still tell the story I’m looking for. In this moment of Rear Window Raymond Burr finally realizes that he’s being watched by someone across the building court yard and James Stewart knows he’s found out.

I was inspired this morning by Lou McGill’s post which included animated GIFs of three close-ups from the final shoot-out in The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Seeing the animated faces of Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach on a single webpage made my think of the Brady Bunch Opening with the nine […]
Jim Groom was interviewed by Dr. Oblivion today and Jim plead that the ds106 community forgive him after banishing so many students during the Summer of Oblivion. It seemed to be a truly touching moment of closure for everyone that had fretted over the mental health of Jim Groom. Dr. Oblivion was retaking the helm […]
I finally had some time yesterday to make my video mashup assignment for ds106. I’ve done a few already as part of the sagas of Jim Groom and Dr. Obilivion, but wanted to do something a little less “ds106ish” this time.

You can visit a working version of the Oblivion Report on Bo.lt or on my Site. I decided to rework the Drudge Report for my web-story, using Bo.lt.

Together we’ll find a process that brings us to a place that’s right for ds106. Your cousin’s misplaced anger isn’t your fault. It’s something we’ll […]
Jim Groom finally lets the ds106 and ds107 communities know the truth about the monster within himself and how he has no ability to control it. God help all of us in ds106 and ds107.
Jim Groom a beloved member of the ds106 community appeared to lose his senses when he assumed power over ds106 and banished anyone that questioned his authority. A small group formed a rebellion against the newly despotic Groom. They called themselves ds107. Soon a number of ds106 expats believed that the Jim Groom they had […]

I have to admit this became more of a dabbling with “found sounds” rather than what I’d think normally as working with sound effect clips. But I couldn’t help myself as I really enjoyed looking through the open catalog of freesound.org. This little piece started while trying to manage a moment of personal frustration. Not […]
