Sickness and a Shorter Trailer

Posted 22 Apr 2012 in Uncategorized

Hello all!

This week has been kind of hectic for me. I missed the presentation at the creative symposium because I was extremely sick, and I spent much of the week trying to catch up with everything I had been unable to do while I was sick. One of the main things I did was create a shortened trailer for the history symposium next week. Since we are limited to only 6-8 minutes for our presentation, that meant our current trailer was too long to show. So I cut the trailer down to about 1:30 so we can show a little of what James Farmer sounded like. If we don’t end up using this, it isn’t the end of the world, but I wanted us to have the option of showing it if we wanted to. The trailer is below:

I have also been going through the website and making small changes to layout or spelling and grammar. I’ve made more changes to layout than to spelling or grammar (hopefully a reflection of our excellent writing skills!), but overall I think its made the site look a little better. I added and updated the map tab, and messed around with the photo dimensions on our group photo, as well as having our names link to our digital portfolios. I’ve been having issues with the site crashing a lot when I try to edit it, which has been very annoying. I think it might have something to do with multiple people trying to edit it at once…? Thankfully, all of my corrections have always gone through (if very slowly) so that is all that matters.

We are so close to being done! I cannot believe how quickly this semester has gone.

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I will try to be a benevolent ruler. 😉

    Also, I will definitely do! He said he enjoyed having other people in the lab to talk to. Also, your project is turning out quite well; congratulations on it!

    Caitlin! I sometimes get weird/slow reactions from the website too…I think your hunch may be right. You are crazy to have cut down the trailer, but it is so awesome. Even though you make everything video related look effortless, I know that it takes a lot of skill (which I don’t have). So great job!

    Caitlin, you never fail to astound me. If this is the quality of work you do when you’re sick, than I have no doubt that you will one day rule the world through whatever medium you see fit.

    Congratulations, again! And tell your boyfriend that he helped break up the monotony of our group time in the lab and prevented all of us from falling into madness any earlier with his positive attitude.
