Project: NOW SOUND Music Blog

Medium: Film [edited in Final Cut Pro], Web Design, HTML/CSS

Date: October-December 2011

Objective: NOW SOUND is a blog where I post play lists I have put together accompanied by music videos that I filmed and edited. The play lists are specific to instances or moods that I feel should have a soundtrack. When the viewer plays a video, it gives them a preview of 30-90 seconds of each song with interesting visuals to enhance the feeling that the songs creates. Overlapping text tells the song name and artist along with some interesting information about the album creation or release. The site is geared towards music lovers, film makers, and other designers.
