This video clip was given to me by my Columbia College Chicago, audio visual media1 teacher. There was no sound. I created the sound design for this piece.
WALL-E (stylized with an interpunct as WALL•E) is a 2008 American computer-animated romantic science fiction film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and directed by Andrew Stanton. The story follows a robot named WALL-E, who is designed to clean up a waste-covered Earth far in the future. He falls in love with another robot named EVE, who also has a programmed task, and follows her into outer space on an adventure that changes the destiny of both his kind and humanity. Both robots exhibit an appearance of free will and emotions similar to humans, which develop further as the film progresses.
After directing Finding Nemo, Stanton felt Pixar had created believable simulations of underwater physics and was willing to direct a film largely set in space. Most of the characters do not have actual human voices, but instead communicate with body language and robotic sounds, designed by Ben Burtt, that resemble voices. In addition, it is the first animated feature by Pixar to have segments featuring live-action characters.
Walt Disney Pictures released it in the United States and Canada on June 27, 2008. The film grossed $23.2 million on its opening day, and $63.1 million during its opening weekend in 3,992 theaters, ranking number one at the box office. This ranks as the fifth highest-grossing opening weekend for a Pixar film. Following Pixar tradition, WALL-E was paired with a short film, Presto, for its theatrical release.
WALL-E has been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews among critics, scoring an approval rating of 96% on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. It grossed $521.3 million worldwide, won the 2008 Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film, the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, Long Form, the final Nebula Award for Best Script, the Saturn Award for Best Animated Film, and the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature as well as being nominated for five other Academy Awards at the 81st Academy Awards. WALL-E ranks first in TIME's "Best Movies of the Decade".
WALL-E, besides being entertaining, is also seen as a critique on larger societal issues. This film addresses consumerism, nostalgia, environmental problems, waste management, and the immense impact that humans have on the earth. There is also a rather major overarching theme through this movie, which is issues of human nature, and the direction that the human race is headed. WALL-E is seen as a movie that appeals to both conservative and liberal audiences.

Project Brotherhood (PB) has developed a community based outreach and prevention program for African American men (AAM) residing in the Woodlawn and other surrounding south side communities of Chicago, Illinois.
With this model we have created a "safe" place for Black men to come and seek services. Project Brotherhood goals are to increase the health awareness in black men, with PB's definition of health being: complete physical, mental, social, economic and spiritual well being. Project Brotherhood's mission is to increase the health awareness in Black men by training Black men & providing preventive health messages & literature in a cultural & gender specific way (age specific when necessary). With this new awareness Black men are more likely to go for health screening and testing. This may lead to an early diagnosis and PB knows Black men die from disease due to late or "no" diagnosis at all.
Whether it is on the baseball field, basketball court, or just hanging on the corner, Project Brotherhood has become a trusted source of health information and services for men on the south side of Chicago. Project Brotherhood has presented its program and research at a wide variety of professional conferences. We have been honored with the James Wright Award from the National Association of Public Hospitals and have received numerous positive attentions from the press. The Center for Disease Control has recognized Project Brotherhood as an outstanding program that can help reduce health inequities. Project Brotherhood was featured in an installment of CNN's Black in America.

Frito Lays Superbowl commercial clip given to me by my Columbia College Chicago, audio visual media1 instructor. Some audio was there but we had to shift it around to fit clip such as room tone and dialog. Mixed and arranged by Lyle-Tek.
Frito-Lay North America is the division of PepsiCo that manufactures, markets and sells corn chips, potato chips and other snack foods. The primary snack food brands produced under the Frito-Lay name include Fritos corn chips, Cheetos cheese-flavored snacks, Doritos and Tostitos tortilla chips, Lay's potato chips, Rold Gold pretzels, Ruffles chips and Walkers potato crisps (Europe)—each of which generated annual worldwide sales over $1 billion in 2009.
Frito-Lay began in the early 1930s as two separate companies, The Frito Company and H.W. Lay & Company. The two merged in 1961 to form Frito-Lay, Inc. Four years later, in 1965, Frito-Lay, Inc. merged with the Pepsi-Cola Company, resulting in the formation of PepsiCo, Inc. Since that time, Frito-Lay has operated as a wholly owned subsidiary of PepsiCo. Through Frito-Lay, PepsiCo is the largest globally distributed snack food company in the world, with sales of its products in 2009 comprising 40 percent of all "savory snacks" sold in the United States and 30 percent of the non-U.S. market. Frito-Lay North America accounts for 31 percent of PepsiCo's annual sales.
