  • The Notorious Jumping Frog Analysis

    From reading The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, I would add a piece of technology that would help Jim Smiley win more bets with his frog. I would add a device that would be capable of measuring jumping height, force from takeoff, and the landing force. This way Mr. Smiley could go out and gather frogs and test them until he singled out the best frog for him to use in his bets. Mr. Smiley taught the frog that he caught in the story on how to jump higher, but if someone else were to have a more athletic frog than Mr. Smiley he could’ve easily been beaten because Smiley didn’t measure his frogs height from jumping and didn’t really know for a fact that he was the highest jumping frog in Calaveras County. What my device would consist of would be a laser beam, a pressure measurement plate, and a magnet recipient bar. The device would be connected to a sort of graphing machine that would log the force of the take off and landing, it would also log the height at which the laser beam was shot into the magnet recipient. The laser beam would shoot where the frogs momentum shifted from up to down, the laser beam would then instantly shoot into the magnet recipient and the height would be logged down by the graphing machine that is connected to the recipient bar. The pressure measurement plate that is connected to the graphing machine and it would then log the weight at which the frog pushed off of the pressure measurement plate during the jump, the frogs weight before it…

  • Neko Case Video Analysis

    After watching the three videos for this week’s discussion post, I have a better understanding of the difference between a normal press kit and an EPK. In dealing with the artist that I have been working with through out this class I feel that a more creative video like the Neko Case video would be more suiting to the artist. They too are indie and artsy, maybe without the animated colleges but this style of video would get their story across and still promote the new album. Her video is a short…
