My first time lapse!

I completed my first time lapse image on Sunday. It’s of traffic at the Lowry Tunnel and on Hennepin Avenue in the Loring Park neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minn.

2:20: I just got done shooting a video. Will try to get that bad boy up on YouTube soon. My partner was Jackie Cain of the Echo at St. Michael’s College in Vermont.

Earlier I had Burger King: double cheeseburger and a strawberry shake. Delicious as always. Nice walk down Washington Avenue.

10:20: After a delicious pizza and wings dinner last night, Andrea, Ben and I all headed out separate ways and I am now back at the U of M.

Sitting in with Ron Johnson again. This time: 10 design tips.



Back with Ron Johnson of Indiana University. This time the workshop is on Fundamental News Design. Same room (Murphy 228) as with Joel Eisfelder.

Hopefully I’ll learn some good stuff to apply to City College News.

I got here not that long ago and have registered. The Keynote speaker starts in 15 minutes. The speaker is MinnPost’s David Brauer. Will keep you readers updated as times goes by. Hopefully I’ll be learning about quite a few things here: Advertising, Layout/Graphic Design and some “cutting edge” audio/video techniques.
