Museum of the Moving Image

I live close to the Museum of the Moving Image, yet this is the first time I've been there.

I love stop motion animation, so of course had fun playing around with it.

One of the more interesting exhibits in the museum was the sound editing. I already knew that sound and video was usually done separately, but it was still interesting to see people dub the voices in the ADR booth.

Learning how sound effects were done was really interesting as well. It was surprising (and amusing) to find out that the sound effects used for the Titanic breaking apart were actually soda cans being crushed, elephants in distress and gun shots.

And apparently, Kate Winslet sounds like a chair and sandbag falling.

A Day in the Life of a Hunter Student

Life at Hunter may be fast-paced and hectic for some...

...But taking night classes and being at Hunter after dark shows a different side of life at Hunter.

The bridge connecting the East and West buildings on the seventh floor. The hectic, frenetic pace of the day slows down considerably once night falls, leaving a calm and peaceful atmosphere...

...Sometimes. There's something unsettling about a (mostly) empty school.
