    “DS106: What Really Happened?”

     Well It’s Here Folks… I can’t believe the actual end to this class is here. It’s been a long, rewarding semester, and I’m not sure I’ve created so much in my entire life before. It’s addicting, and I could see myself returning to and for new challenges periodically. In this class, I learned that I truly love […]

    Evidence: Paranoia Virus?

    I’ve been thinking, with everybody who got sick earlier in the semester, and all this upheaval about the mysterious CDE agent, perhaps there isn’t a virus… at least not the one you’re thinking of. You don’t get any symptoms, save one: paranoia. All this evidence? It all points to those people who are hiding in […]

    Video Week… Whew

    Well I made my film debut with Cypherpunk this week – we’ll probably have to shoo the paparazzi away for awhile…     So what were the happenings?   Daily Creates An alien who just happened to be able to soak up fire through his skin.

    The Butchering of “28 Days Later”

    A product of the Alt Ending video assignment:   Thoughts This post-apocalyptic film is fairly grotesque and captures the violence behind survival. Few people are your friends, and even friends kill each other when one is exposed to the virus and turning. The concept of family is one of the most prevalent motifs seen throughout […]

    The Plot Thickens…

    Everybody created their own plots for the radio project – it was awesome to hear what some came up with! Besides that, plenty happened this week…   So what happened?   Daily Creates @ds106dc This is definitely not an owl.#theend106 #ds106 #tdc2264 — Christopher Ringham (@Chris_tastrophe) March 22, 2018   @ds106dc I’m allergic to […]

    Radio is Rad

    Alt-F4 The process of creating this project was really fun! Ideas came easily with such a creative group to work with. That being said, it took much longer than I thought it would. Audio editing certainly takes a lot of time. I’m glad we decided to do the faux listener call-ins by recording over the […]

    It’s a Wrap!

    Well it was certainly a journey – thank you to all of the great group members I worked with: Katie, Jenn, and Daniel. We spent the early week recording our audio, and the remainder of the time editing (which took a long time). Especially when we misplaced one of our fully edited episodes. Jenn was awesome and […]

    My Lips Are Sealed

    First Check-In Well, our radio team met up and we decided on the name Alt-F4. It’s the shortcut key combo for ending a process – this is 1) an end, and 2) digitally related. The squad also brain stormed the general idea of the way our project will go. You know those “found-footage” films? We’re thinking […]

    James and His Luscious Facial Hair

    Apocalyptic Character Generator   Behind the Scenes What better place to put him than his own office? I wanted to make him middle aged because it fit with the wife and daughter story. He’s a pretty typical guy, and the apocalypse hasn’t struck yet, so he’s wearing typical clothes. HeroMachine3 was a very strange tool. […]

    Hire Me, Hugh Howey: Wool Alt. Cover

    Apocalyptic Alternative Book Cover   Behind the Scenes This cover was edited and created using Pixlr. To start, I set off in search of an old, metal spiral staircase with a top-down view (very specific criteria, I know). My search was inspired by the description of the staircase gong throughout the silo in Wool’s story. […]

    Guess I’m Done Hoarding my Music Creations Now…

    Play DJ & Make a Song I’ve created several songs, but never posted any publicly. Here’s the first! Let’s make it go viral (psych) – I hope you enjoy:   Behind the Process Not the first song I’ve made, but probably one of the quickest I’ve turned out. I used FL Studio to produce it, […]

    Wool: Sounds From the Silo

    Create a Place Listen to be transported into Hugh Howey’s world of Wool. These sounds emulate a multi-level society that survives underground in a giant vertical silo, all floors connected by one spiraling metal staircase.   Behind the Scenes I knew the silo would be an interesting choice because of the metal, its vertical layout, […]

    Fictional Nuclear Emergency Broadcast

    My Frequency 2156 Submission I decided to emulate a military emergency broadcast for our Frequency 2156 world’s radioactive state:   Behind the Scenes I wrote up a script to read and recorded my audio using an external USB microphone into Audacity. From there, I modulated my voice to sound radio-like by following this unprofessional, but […]
