Will is an undeclared freshman who loves all things technology. Growing up in Midcoast Maine, he developed a quick interest for computers, and he especially loves tinkering with Garageband and Final Cut Pro. He is a bass in the Bowdoin Longfellows and loves to spend long afternoons singing low notes to himself, sometimes recording such endeavors. Will loves to travel and explore exciting, far-off lands like the sandy beaches of the Bahamas or the canals of Venice. His academic interests span from Arabic to Neuroscience and he really has no clue what he wants to do with his life!
Sky is a Sophomore from Jersey. Although undeclared, Sky has essentially decided on a Government & Philosophy double major with a minor in French. He has had proficient experience with almost every version of Adobe Photoshop, and has been using it with a digital pen tablet since middle school to create various odd works of "art." He is also comfortably familiar with multiple video editing software programs for both Mac and PC. He has used Final Cut Pro to help both his family and peers with their own projects, and has spent (too many) hours fooling around with Sony Vegas. Typically, if Sky is not working diligently in the Scratch Space area, he is at either Thorne Dining Hall or Smith Union. Please approach Sky with any tech/non-tech related questions and he will be happy to assist you
A Pre-Med student majoring in Chemistry, Matt’s interests in digital media go as far back as middle school, where he made fake horror movie trailers using iMovie and wacky music in GarageBand. His work with the Bowdoin Poster Design Team, and photography for the Orient has given him the opportunity to become quite skilled in Photoshop, and he’s showcased his skills by creating posters for the Scratch Space. Though his main focus is medicine, Matt believes that digital media can be integrated in just about any area and hopes to always be involved with it in some capacity.
