    Free for All GIFs

    by

    I had some downtime while traveling today, so I did my Prisoner106 homework and went on a watching spree. I got through the first five episodes, and I am totally locked in. I might finish the whole season my week’s end, and revisit it a few times for some close …

    Six of One

    by

    I’m thrilled Talky Tina suggested the 1960s U.K. TV series The Prisoner as the theme for this summer’s open version of ds106 for two reasons: 1) it’s a brilliant show, and 2) it’s a welcome opportunity to get back in the creative habit. Someone (not me!) has created an impromptu …

    Making GIFs with IMGUR

    by

    I’m not really good enough at making GIFs to be a snob, but for the last four years I’ve pushed the process of making GIFs with a combination of a lightweight video editing tool like MPEG Streamclip to edit and export the video clip as stills and an image editing …

    As part of the ds106 weekly process, students are expected to blog all their various assignments and then link to everything they have done and narrate their work what we call a “weekly summary post.” There is the expectation they narrate where they are in their thinking, creative process, problems …

    by

    There’s been so much awesome work coming out of ds106 the that’s it been a bit overwhelming. I want to write about EVERYTHING, but that often leads to me writing about none of it. Tonight I have decided to break that vicious cycle and start writing about as much of …

    It’s Chinatown GIFs, Jack

    by

    I spent some time making Chinatown GIFs this morning, and I think the shot of Mulwray’s dead body might be one of my better attempts in a long while. GIFs are not only fun to make, they are awesome for slowing down a film and really looking at what’s happening …

    A Kind of Screw

    by

    I’ve had a month-long hiatus from blogging on the bava—which may be the longest ever—although I have been posting images, tweets, bookmarks, and more here. Fittingly, the latest incarnation of ds106 has started up, noir106, so I am getting back in the groove. I did today’s daily create

    The Wire Come to Life

    by

    For the final project in Wire 106 students were asked to chose a character from the HBO series The Wire and build an online presence for them across several social media sites. It’s been interesting experience these narratives because they hit me at the strangest times when I’m not looking …
