    Week Fourteen Reflection :(


    I am sad.

    I really loved this class. I had a great time taking time out every week to create things that I wouldn’t have otherwise. I loved the daily creates, I love the assignment bank, I just truly love every aspect of this class. I think I created some …

    DS106 Final


    Here is my final project! I decided to create a video story with a focus on sound design that’s broken up with photography/graphic design. I accomplished this through film and some stills that I FINALLY GOT BACK YESTERDAY. All of them are pretty environments that I’ve edited to be distorted …

    Week Thirteen Reflections


    This reflection is going to be a little odd.

    I don’t have anything to show for this week! This week was about planning and outlining what I’m going to do for the final project for the class. We’re asked to tell a story through digital media by using three different …

    Week Twelve Reflections



    This week was great! I loved the variety of assignments and the carrying creativity. I think it includes the second time I’ve drawn for this course too. So let’s jump into it!

    The first assignment for this week was to create a tutorial for one of the …

    I’m Ready For My Close Up


    This is a photo close up of my friend two weeks removed from his first child being born. He’s thriving. I didn’t tell him about this so I really hope he stumbles across the instagram, since it’s public. The background image is called Iridescence and is an art installation. I …

    Photo Mash


    I decided to insert Irri into one of my favorite tv shows ever, Veronica Mars. I think the idea of Irri solving crimes with Kristen Bell was too good to pass up. I also got the cut out around Irri really well in this edit! Doing multiple of these for …

    This Doesn’t Belong Here


    I thought it would be fun to put the last Naruto v Sasuke in the background of the train scene from Spirited Away. I really like the juxtaposition of the scenes and I think they go together pretty well. In a Futurama-esque moment of levity I could see this happening …

    Logo Switch Up


    Irri runs Papa Johns now, on account of the Papa not being a great person. I liked editing this photo, I wish I was better at masking it, but the gradient behind the Papa was intricate and hard to replicate, and Irri is a lot skinnier a figure than the …

    Played From Another Room — TUTORIAL


    I made a tutorial for making something sound like it’s from another room! I did this assignment earlier and loved it, and it’s pretty simple once you realize what’s happening, so I made a tutorial so more people could do it! I hope you enjoy!

    Auditory Hell [Remixed]: Pollack Style


    Please wear headphones with the volume at max for best effect (ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DO THIS)

    I like noise. I like making noise music. When the remix came about and asked that I “score” a Pollack painting, it made TOO MUCH sense. I really like how the end product came …

  11. @ArthurDrag1



    I saw that Cole made this assignment a while ago, and I decided I had to do it. Remixing it was amazing as well, because it prompted me to make it emo, which let me hop back to high school for a little bit. I collected the songs and added …

    Week Eleven Reflections


    This week was hard~~

    I’ve been in Florida all week running a music conference that I work ridiculously dumb hours at (usually 8am – 12am). HOWEVER I did the assignments while in the hotel at night and they turned out pretty well.

    First, I did 12 stars of video assignments. …

    A Horror Scene



    An Explanation

    So this is a really weird concept. I wanted to walk into the room and have a really crazy scene, then walk back in to have my friends just sitting in the room like nothing happened. The creature in the corner in the first entrance is a

    Digital Story Compilation


    This made me nostalgic. I really enjoyed going through my old blog posts and daily creates to find the things I liked the most. The music is also something I made for this class! It’s interesting to see the progress in writing I’ve done as well, I was a little …

    1 Second Story


    This was a fun little video to make. The thought behind it took significantly longer than the video did, obviously, but even then there were multiple takes. I really enjoyed making it though! The file was around 2 seconds which was as short as I could make it, and then …

    Recording a Memory



    Here’s the write up in the video: I put the video together in final cut and edited in the transition frames and title sequences. I don’t really like title cards and end credits, but I thought by making them funny I would be at peace with it. Get ready …

    Week Ten Reflection


    Week Ten!!

    This week was about video editing and storytelling. I do a lot of video art, but this was very outside of what I do, which was fun!

    The assignments started with an analysis of how film makers decide to make films; what goes into shots, what is trying …

    Video Essay: Donnie Darko Fear and Love


    I decided to analyze the fear and love scene from Donnie Darko for the video analysis assignment. I tried to focus on the readings and videos with my response, focussing on the way the scenes were shot, what the symbolism that was trying to be conveyed was, and how effectively …

    AMV Assignment


    I think I was crying laughing the whole time I made this. I made a version of this earlier last year, but I edited it more for this assignment and uploaded it over the original file, hence the 11 months ago upload time. This started as a joke for a …

    Six Second Art


    This was a cool little thing to do! I tried to streamline my process by doing most of it in presets beforehand so I could make the six second deadline, but it ended up still taking around two minutes. So I had to speed it up a lot. But yeah! …

    Pupper Appreciation



    He is my favorite thing in the world. Charles and I are best friends and I’m really happy I got to make this lil’ collage of him. It was really nice going through old videos I have and putting them together so I got to look …

    Favorite Transition


    This assignment was funny. I decided to take it in the direction of making fun of transitions, because just about every transition is cheesy and weird. Final Cut has SO MANY terrible transitions that I don’t understand why people feel the need to use. This transition is the mosaic transition, …

    Week Nine Reflection


    This week was a lot different than the other weeks.

    I really enjoyed doing things like messing with web pages and customizing images in ways to tell stories. A lot of the assignments were very cool ways to tell a story like I’ve never thought to do before.

    First this …

    Youtube It Your Way!


    This was a silly quick assignment. The goal was to change something about the youtube video text in order to change what the video is likely about. I chose to point out something funny I saw happening in the front of the static image of the video, and kept with …

    Looking Back To The Past


    I’m afraid to do this assignment. I think it’ll be a neat exercise though.

    This first work is the first ensemble piece I wrote here at UMW. I was learning how to orchestrate and how to write for people, and it’s not great. I hate to listen to this piece. …

    Guess The Story


    This was a really interesting way to tell a story. I thought the assignment was gonna be a breeze but getting into it I really wasn’t sure how to go about it. I picked out a nice assortment of gifs I think. If you want a spoiler, the title is …

    Buzzfeed Personality Quiz


    This is silly. I made a buzzfeed quiz of which ambient (i misspelled ambient on the quiz lol) piano album you should listen to. I know it’s a very niche thing, but I thought it fit me well, and hopefully I can turn some people on to some really cool …

    Storytelling Within The Web


    I really liked this assignment! It took me a while to think of what I wanted to do. I brainstormed what I like and what would reflect me and I landed on editing outlook to be what your email would look like in Animal Crossing New Leaf. For those unfamiliar, …

    Week Eight Reflection


    There’s not too much to write about this week.

    Here’s our radio show!


    All of this week was spent working on the radio show. I put together and mixed all the audio and wrote a lot of music for it as well as voice acting as a gnome which …
