    Remixed Mashed-up Logo


    We were asked to do two remix assignments. This first one we were asked to turn this assignment into a really bad power-point presentation. We were asked to do everything wrong in terms of design, bad colors, dense text, bad graphics. This was super cringe-y to make but here is …

    What’s the Mission?


    I believe our next mission should involve several things that we have learned so far this semester (that includes our characters). I like the idea of creating a video collage or a video story of our characters. I have really enjoyed looking and playing with iMovie and think that a …

    Super Secret Opinions


    The Super Secret Opinions radio show was great! I think their group did a great job replicating what a real radio show is like. They had a lot of good conversation about the secret agent theme and I like how they incorporated real life characters such as Mr. and Mrs. …
