My name is Michaella Gumila, I’m currently studying Digital Media at Freestyle Academy here in Mountain View. I’m really passionate about visual arts as a method to communicate and empathize with other people. I have some background in fine arts, including illustration, painting, ceramics, and photography. I hope to gain and strengthen my skills so I can apply them to the real world. The goal across our classes at Freestyle for this unit is to dicover who we are and what we stand for as individuals. We did this through a variety of projects, including a personal essay that we ourselves chose a prompt for. In digital Media, we also created a video about life lessons we have collected over the years. Using After Effects, we gave each scene the Ken Burns effect to keep veiwers entertained and interested.
