Delta Zeta Philanthropy Dodgeball Tournament

Delta Zeta Sorority hosted its first ever “Dee Zee Dodge” dodgeball tournament as its spring philanthropy event. All proceeds raised from the event benefit DZ’s national philanthropy, Starkey Hearing Foundation. In the event’s first year, proceeds exceeded $2,500.

Starkey Hearing Foundation makes hearing aids for people with hearing disabilities or complete hearing loss all across the country. The women of Delta Zeta have had personal experiences with this foundation, and have had the experience being by people’s sides while they experience the ability to hear for the first time. Check out the dodgeball tournament that is starting up to raise funds for this great cause.

Silent Disco VR Experience

For this project, I took the camera to the Student Activities Board “Silent Disco” event. It was an interesting experience, and the 360 only adds to the effect. Curious as to what a silent disco is? See for yourself!

At the University of Kentucky, we are always changing things up. A silent disco is when instead of playing the music out loud, all the dancers receive a pair of headphones. The headphones receive the sound from all the DJs present, so you can change the channel and listen to a different DJ whenever you want.

We decided to cover this event in 360 to show the atmosphere of the party and put you, the viewer, right in the middle of it. Look around and see dancers, lights, DJs, and inflatables!

 

Natural Bridge

Red River Gorge is a beautiful nature preserve in Slade, KY that provides hiking, camping, and wildlife adventures. It is home to Natural Bridge – a naturally created bridge that many people travel to see. In this video, viewers will experience the “Original Trail” that takes them to the top of the bridge. On the way, they will be surrounded by wildlife, forests, and fellow hikers.  The Gorge is a popular destination for locals and travelers. This video was created to give people an experience of Natural Bridge, who are unable to see it in person. Or perhaps inspire people to take a trip. The peaceful nature sounds and visual beauty will virtually take viewers to Natural Bridge.
