Maria Interviews Peter…

On Thursday November 26, Maria Osipova and I gave a presentation entitled “Promoting Yourself on the Internet” for our Global M.B.A. Business Communication class. Personally, it was by far the most interesting subject I have explored in a presentation. In fact, the idea for this website came after Maria and I first started preparing our presentation. Thanks for agreeing to all my crazy ideas Maria! It was great working with you:

The Opening of the Keimyung Arts Center!

The opening of the Keimyung Arts Center was an event I had been looking forward to with much anticipation for almost a year. I just love the sound of an orchestra, and I just had to bring along my camera to document the night for the history books. What an enjoyable and memorable night it was, and since then I have returned many times to hear great music performed by great musicians, some of whom I have been lucky enough to meet and in some cases teach. Good memories.

iPod Accessories Video

I created this video as part of a Consumer Behaviour team presentation about product branding and product personality. I really like how this video turned out, and I think the music goes incredibly well with the images. The music is a piece composer Bear McCreary wrote for the first season of Battlestar Galactica. It is very aptly named “Battlestar Muzactica”. I created the flying text in the introduction with a fantastic and very cheap piece of software called Bluff Titler.

Chuseok at Ubang Towerland!

The Chuseok holiday in 2008 was a very memorable and happy day as myself and several GMBA classmates headed to Ubang Towerland for several hours of pure fun. Thank you Seon for organising the day and inviting me. It was one of my most enjoyable days in Korea.

I made the following montage of the day using the great photos Sean took.  The first piece of music, a bright energetic piece for 9 celli, is by Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi from his score to the 1989 animation Kiki’s Delivery Service. The second piece, also by Joe Hisaishi, is entitled “Spring” from his Piano Stories 4 CD.

Suji & Doori’s Animation Starring Peter!

In the summer of 2008, two of my former students, Suji and Doori, invited me to star in this animation movie for their senior year portfolio. I felt quite touched that they wanted me for their film, so I eagerly said yes. My part took about an hour to film, but Suji and Doori worked on the animation day after day for over 6 months.

A Montage of Student Presentations

I made this video in 2007 to inform my students of the Kemmys Presentation Competition.

My hope was that it would inspire them (or at least give them some ideas) for their own presentations and perhaps help them win the Kemmys and a trip to Australia. Continue reading “A Montage of Student Presentations”

How To Spot A Woolly Wolf

A big thank you to the Keimyung Gazette for publishing in 2006 my article about the JMS cult entitled “How to Spot a Woolly Wolf”.  It is also hosted on Rick Ross’s excellent cult awareness site, and it is referenced on Providence Church’s (the JMS Cult) Wikipedia page. Last but not least, a Korean translation is available here. And I might as well copy it below as well with a few tweeks:

How To Spot A Woolly Wolf

My first year in Korea was spent in the rural town of Geumsan in Chungcheongnam Province. The town is famous for ginseng, but what I remember most about Geumsan is that it is home to a very dangerous cult. Continue reading “How To Spot A Woolly Wolf”
