RemixThis: I really liked starting out reviewing the references to remix and examples. It helped me understand what a remix is and how to go about making my own remixes for these two weeks. It also helped me understand more about copyright material and when I can use it.
7 Stars Mashup Assignments: I really enjoyed working on these mashup/remix assignments. There is a lot of work that goes into these assignments. I’m really glad that we had the video unit first so I could get familiar with video editing first.
1. Recycle the Media– 3 stars: I used the recycled media by creating a video that includes 6 images of being outside and 2 sounds that relate to nature. This video represents me taking a nature walk, and the things that I see. I like using other media that other people did not use to make a whole new stoary about it. It makes me think and be creative with the images that were in the recyclyed media bin. In my assignment post I added more detail into how I used the media.
2. Movie Trailer Mashup– 4 stars. I enjoyed the movie trailer mashup. For this I used the movie Up and the movie The Avengers. I made the movie Up look like it had a lot of action and adventure/war theme instead of a family friendly happy movie.
Remix An Assignment: I really enjoyed this remixed an assignment. It’s really fun to see what kinds of combinations of assignments can go together into one assignmet. I also liked how I had to use media already created and add onto the remix.
Planning for Final Project: I know this assignment was due November 25, but I wanted to post a link to this assignment on my weekly summary post. I’m looking forward to getting started on my final project. I like how I can use everything that I have learned this semester to put it together.
Reflection on Mashup/Remix: I am first going to say that the comments that I got from my video assignments from last week were really helpful. They let me think about how I can improve my videos for this week. I really enjoyed doing the RemixThis assignment first it helped me really understand what a remix really is. My favorite remix example that I reviewed was the Star Wars Call Me Maybe. This was the most creative remix I saw. It also looked like there was a lot of editing involved to create the video. Working on the assignments were fun. I really liked both of the mash-up assignments that I chose to do. After this week I feel that I really understand remix and mash up. I am looking forward to this last week of class next week and working on my final project. I cannot believe that the semester is coming to a close.
