    Digital Story Compilation



    This assignment was really a time to go back to look at all the assignments and memories shared during the course of this class. This are some of the ones I’m proud to share. The downside to using a song is that other audio’s can’t be played. I attempted …

    Trailer Mashup–Mulan


    I think downloading all the tools and learning how to use it was more annoying than doing the assignment itself. I used Sony Vegas Pro as the main tool for combining all my clips. Using clip converter, I downloaded the clips from YouTube and saved them in the proper formats …

    Someone once told me that “God never gives you more than you can handle”

    Disappearing Act Web Story


    So after watching Tim and Martha’s video and going over the written instruction, I still felt lost because I didn’t know what website I wanted to look at. I’m big on fashion but fashion is very image focused and Martha warned against websites with too many pictures….So what now? I …

    Audio Experiment #3 Alvin!!!!!!


    For the third audio experiment I decided to play with the effects since the other two didn’t really allow for that much experimentation. I recorded someone singing this rhyme and then I played with the pitch and the pace which resulted in the lovely chimpmunck sounding thing. I added other …

    Audio Experiment #2 Mash-up


    This crazy mashup was so fun to do. i think the hardest part was thinking up questions and then thinking of the right songs to respond. It doesn’t help if you don’t listen to a lot of music. After i imported the songs i wanted to use, it was very …

    Audio Experiment #1 Sound Story


    For this assignment, I pulled out hairs, said some pretty graphic words and shed a tear or two but i finally got the hand of it. I didn’t have a problem with downloading the sound effects but it took me a while to learn how to put it all on …
