Something I’ve recently been enlightened to is shooting HD video on DSLR cameras. I had no idea people did this professional. I always thought that since video was an afterthought added to these cameras, that it would be crappy and not work right. Then I started reading a lot of professional blogs with people testing… Continue reading Shooting video with DSLRs

You’ve probably seen advertising for the ABC show “V” this month. You might have even watched it. I noticed that a number of my friends are becoming “fans” of it on Facebook, tweeting about how much they’re enjoying it, or talking about it. It’s right in line with my interests as a retired X-Phile –… Continue reading I don’t like "V".

It turned out pretty decently, but it frustrated me so much. It got lots of laughs during the showing,… Continue reading love/hate for after effects
When it comes to preserving memories, I’m usually more apt to grab a still camera than a video camera despite being in the video field. With a still, you can get a frozen moment that represents an event, and it can end up being really timeless. It eliminates all the flaws really easily and exists… Continue reading Little Video Timecapsules
In short, this is what I have determined the difference between Twitter and Facebook Status Feed is: Facebook Status Feed: “Kylee Wall said blah blah blah.” Twitter: “Blah blah blah said Kylee Wall.” Facebook is directly linked to your full profile, among your friends, and the importance is placed on YOU saying something. Twitter is… Continue reading The Difference Between Twitter and Facebook Status
I am a huge fan of transmedia and alternate reality gaming. The interactivity of watching something on TV, doing something on your computer, going somewhere and having a shared experience, or physically creating something and having it all fit together in one big puzzle is a really intriguing experience. I’ve participated in a few of… Continue reading Transmedia Gaming Experiences
Oh, how I adore Glee. It airs Wednesday nights on FOX, in case you’ve been living under a rock. It’s centered around a Glee Club at an Ohio high school, and all the dramas that come along with it. And it of course features a lot of show choir and other musical numbers, though they… Continue reading Filled with Glee
