Urban Playground

For my final project I was tasked with making a video in Adobe Premiere.  The directions for this project were to make it interesting, meaning I was to find something that could be seen as boring and make it interesting to the viewer.  I decided that I wanted to collaborate on this project with a peer in class.  We came up with urban playground.  The video is in a link below.

Concrete Poetry

The concrete poetry project was created as a collaborative project involving everyone in the class.  Each person was given a word to use.  We decided as a group to create a narrative including all the words.  Below is a link to the page I created.
