    weekly summary: the finale


    Five weeks have come and gone, DS106. We have learned and advanced our skills on multiple digital platforms. For my final project, I wanted to twist a character in a story that I am already familiar with. I looked at my shelf of DVDs and thought – ah, Titanic. So …

    titanic 2.0 – five frame story


    A picture is worth a thousand words… and a story can be told in five. I decided to use this assignment to guide my narrative, and add in the other assignments with it as well. For all of the images I simply found them on Google Images, downloaded them, and …

    titanic 2.0 – the story of your character


    I love the movie Titanic. Old, kind of cheesy, I know, but it’s a classic. This movie of course focuses on the two main ill-fated characters Jack and Rose. So I decided to change the perspective and choose “the bad guy” as my character – Cal, Rose’s fiancé. I chose …

    a day in my life: castanza decent


    “If you take everything I’ve ever done in my entire life and condense it down into one day….it looks decent.” “Everything in my life is the complete opposite of what I want it to be.” Two quotes from the one and only George Castanza from Seinfeld. As I mentioned in …

    healthy vine challenge


    I try to eat healthy most of the time. When I’m making a quick, healthy meal I tend to stick to staples that are easy to prepare. So, I knew this video assignment was one I wanted to do!…

    Weekly Summary 3


    OK, this week was better than I expected. I can honestly say audio is not my favorite technology, but this was better than I thought it would be. I can see why people can have such different views on this week – if you plan to continue on this path …

    daily create june 4


    I saw this sign all over the Sydney airport and the building I’m staying in. I decided to take a picture of it and give it an Australian touch – add an emu! There was an actual war between emus and the Australians. The emus won. I took this picture …

    moon graffiti


    Imagining if Armstrong and Aldrin had crashed… a sad thought to think about, but very interesting to hear this radio show create an audio of what could have been said/recorded. Saying that all of the sound effects were effective for the storytelling is an understatement.…

    TED Radio Hour & ScottLo.


    Some things I was really trying to notice while listening to these two audios were the many types of layers, ambience, etc. Both had different kids that worked really well for their specific topics. In my last blog that summarized my reflection of intro to audio storytelling, I said I …

    audio storytelling: two experts, and me


    Listening to and reflecting on these videos gave me some hope before I start working on these audio assignments this week. Audio is not a field I’m familiar with whatsoever, but I’m excited to try some of the assignments I’ve seen.…
