Media arts internship April 3 - 5, 2015

April 3

Started my podcast prep for this weekend. We’re planning on doing a longer show, so I put out a call for listener questions and topic ideas. I also began research on topic and question ideas. Our March Madness tournament bracket needed to be updated for the final matchup, so I did that as well.

April 4

Continued preparing for the 2015 season preview podcast by researching topics and gathering listener questions. Also update the Spring Training roster infographic for the final time.

April 5

Finalized the notes for the podcast recording, prepped the new show music, and recorded the podcast. Edited the last bit of audio I had from recording in Florida. Created the Spring Training roster infographic post.

Media arts internship March 28 - April 2, 2015

Hasn't really been anything exciting to make a single post out of what I'm doing for my internship, but I am very close to the end. I should finish my hours this weekend, which is very exciting.

March 28, 2015

Prepared for the podcast by reading articles and researching topic ideas, while refining the notes for the show.

March 29, 2015

Researched several topic ideas and finalized the podcast notes. Recorded the podcast and then created a post for the updated Astros Spring Training Roster infographic.

March 30, 2015

Edited the podcast and began preparing for the new music we’ll be using in the show. Updated the Spring Training roster infographic and started working on the second soundscape I plan to release.

March 31, 2015

Updated the March Madness tournament bracket and created an impromptu post about one of the Astros prospects that we got the pleasure of seeing in Florida that featured a picture and some sound.

Media arts internship March 25 - 27, 2015

March 25

I edited and converted to .mp3s some the audio I had recorded at Spring Training. I took several short recordings, then took some really long ones. I combined the smaller ones which were all from batting practice. I had another longer one that I kept by itself and then I had one that combined two sessions that were about 2-3 minutes long.

March 26

We completed the third round of the March Madness tournament, so I needed to update the bracket with the results for the fourth round. I then put together a post for the audio files I had put together.

March 27

Updated the Spring Training infographic as three players had recently been sent down. I then began podcast preparation. Started the podcast post and began researching topics for the show.

Media arts internship March 23 - 24, 2015

March 23

I edited the podcast and created the post that it would be released in for this week: http://www.crawfishboxes.com/2015/3/24/8281083/astros-podcast-spring-training-continues

I then processed the minor league pictures I had taken for the minor league crew to use in posts this season. In all I processed about 133 photos. Six of those I want to add filters to in Photoshop because the shots have too much blur for my liking.

March 24

I finished processing the minor league pictures. Here are a few of my favorites:

I haven’t decided if I’ll upload all the minor league pictures to this site, but I’ll certainly put all the ones in the gallery post I created for the site: http://www.crawfishboxes.com/2015/3/20/8260973/photos-from-astros-spring-training-2015

I put all the pictures in a rar file and sent them to the entire TCB staff for their use. I then reviewed some audio I had been sent for our segment transitions in the podcast. After that I started putting together the soundscapes I plan to release from the audio I recorded at Spring Training.

Media arts internship March 20 - 22, 2015

March 20

I began going through the audio recordings I had taken at Spring Training. I’m editing out any non-baseball sounds that happened during the recordings.

March 21

I created the post for Sunday’s podcast recording then began some preliminary research for the show content. I also listened to a music sample someone sent me for use on the show and responded with some feedback.

March 22

I did research and prepared the show notes for the podcast recording. Then recorded the show. I also updated the Spring Training roster graphic and created a post scheduled to be posted Monday.
