Reflection

Unfortunately i have  not located a location for my internship and I’m still waiting on responses. My initial plan was to take it this coming spring with Final Project so i can be done. I’m looking forward to getting one and the things ill learn. I have drafted my plan for Final Project according to the syllabus attached and i have not submitted it to Professor Mike. I would like to have it registered for it for this coming spring as well.

I’m  working on the framing of my identity online now because a lot of these social networks i inhibit but i do not own these spaces meaning that i do not  really participate in the conversations/culture.  i would like to frame my personality in these spaces under my pseudo name. I want my pseudo name to be attached to me and my personality. My frame is more academic and professional not so much personality in being that a lot of my work was done for school and not passion.

 

Who am I?

Who am I ?
When I google my name by itself my affiliation with York College Women’s Basketball is the first thing that comes up. When I add video to my name a mini documentary of mines comes up that was on YouTube. As well as my Facebook account although it’s pseudo named but all the references on the first page are me as the pages start to turn less of them are me. Id like my most recent work to come up when my name is googled. My blog is currently disabled so when I reenable it id like it to come up first because that is where all my work is. When my name is googled that is what i would like to be shown first.

Final Project Idea : * A Home Away From Home

The series is going to be about the love of the game and the heights the game has taking players that I’ve met at York college, and how basketball (may include other sports)  has helped them learn life lessons.  As well as the platform that it has helped set for them. I chose this project for the fact that I am a student athlete and sometimes people assume that because you are that you have it made and there is no real essential talent that goes into it. There are people who play for fun and their are people who play or engage in these activities because it is more than just a game to them. I will want to portray what the game or chosen sport means to each player. For me it was always a form of therapy. Time frame 5-7 mins each.

The first thing i want to establish is the common setting and the connection between the people. In doing so i will do an opening shot of the Health and Physical Education Building of York College more so focusing on the building in its entirety and the scenic setting because the building is the main domain for student athletes and coaches. Each Talent will have a shot of them coming from different directions to the building.

The second thing i want to establish will be there connection to the sport which gives them common ground but their experiences will set them apart. In the sense i will have a coach and player aspect and also show their engagement with the sport and others while they interact with this sport. Will incorporate the interview segment in the body of their segment.

The closing structure is what I’m having trouble with i think i want the last scene to the talent in the gym by their selves with the ball as if in there own zone and a shot of the ball just bouncing and then rolling. Im not really sure though I’m open to feed back. Thanks in advance

My Taste

My Taste i’m interested in a lot of different things but I would like to work in sports media. Most of my ideas are sports driven. Im into a lot of action and the different emotions that these sports bring to people and the different groups of people that are drawn to sporting events. I like bright and catchy things that catch ones attention. My taste is helping me come up with my final project synopsis. Here is a preview open to feedback :

The idea I have been pondering for sometime now is a miniseries called : Eat , Sleep , Basketball ( tentative to change) .

The series is going to be about the love of the game and the heights the game has taking players that I’ve met at York college, and how basketball  has helped them learn life lessons.  As well as the platform that it has helped set for them. I chose this project for the fact that I am a student athlete and sometimes people assume that because you are that you have it made and there is no real essential talent that goes into it. There are people who play for fun and their are people who play or engage in these activities because it is more than just a game to them.

The series will take on parts of people who have , will or are doing these things now.

All the series will probably be about 8-10 minutes each so far i have 4 candidates that have I in mind and 2 already have signed on .

Their are 4 main components that are meant to establish a connection between all of the people involved but they will all have their own tale to tell .

This idea came to me over the summer i was at the movies with some friends and I had been bouncing ideas off of them and what not. In a point in the movie the idea came to me and so i would not forget i whipped out my phone and started writing it down.  I have an idea and how i want it to look and the structure that i want it to fulfill.

 

Creative Challenge

For this one I chose  a Ds106 design assignment which called for you to take a word and using only the font and size no color to give meaning to the word. The word I chose was imagination. I chose this word because the process of being creative involves the use  of your imagination.

Creative Challenge 09/10 – My Favorite Lyric

I chose to do a Ds106 assignment : My Favorite Lyric. The lyrics i chose came from a recently released song by J. Cole. The first time i played his album this song stood out to me and these particular lyrics caught my attention. This particular image caught my eye because teenagers and children daydream about there future all the time and i think self- love is a big part of one’s future and their future relations and how they will deal and handle things. And in a world where certain images are magnified and glorified it is important to love oneself.

Creative Challenge 09/09/2013

On Friday night I attended the New York  Liberty’s second to final game that will be played in the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey  before they return to Madison Square Garden next season. Even though the Liberty lost i still enjoyed the game simple because I love the game and just being around it in general. These are a couple of pics I had taken.

Creative Challenge

I’m kind of late getting to the creative challenge i was indecisive in what i wanted to do. This is actually my first one.  I created this in Photoshop, i chose this idea because Nike is one of my favorite brands but sometimes it feel like they promote some of the wrong aspects for student-athletes, so i chose for them to promote graduating. On a normal billboard on the side of the road. The process was fun.
