    The Weakest Week

    by

    I named this the weakest week because I didn’t finish one of my assignments and rushed a little towards the end.

    I really enjoyed the video editing lesson. I think my version of the Untamable Tamer turned out ok however I would have liked to add music to it too. …

    The Untamable Tamer

    by

    I was inspired to create the Untamable Tamer  because it looked like Charlie was trying to pick up a lady while he was locked in a cage. Who else would do that! I figured if I made it look like we wanted to be there and was using the lion …

    Montage!

    by

    I completed the assignment why so serious because it sounded really fun. I used a song about montages from Team America World Police and added it to the famous montage scene in Rocky. It’s spot on and really funny. The song is only 80 second long and the video clip …

    Spoon Fed

    by

    Wow.  What a ride the past 8 weeks have been.  And all that hard work has culminated here, in the DS 106 Final Project.  It took me a long time to decide on my project idea.  It’s funny – each idea I had I tried to frame it in …

    Final Project Summary

    by

    For the past seven weeks, I’ve struggled with a topic to storify for my final project. My ideas have ranged from randomly simple (Gorillapod) to bewildering (DMV) to complex (Medicaid). Still, when I’ve tried to flush each of these out, nothing was sticking. During weeks …

    I See if From a Different Angle

    by

    I’m going to have a hard time disproving Ebert here so I won’t even try.  I think the notion of that moving right is forward and favorable and left is in the past and less so is true in almost everything we do. A clock rotates to the right and …

    And that’s a wrap – the final project summary

    by

    I’m generally a fairly creative person but I was having trouble coming up with my big idea all semester. What can I say, I work well under pressure. I will milling through ideas and started thinking of things that would really draw people in, what we can all related to, …

    Are you my new computer?

    by

    This assignment was to create a kids computer book from a well known kids book. I chose Are you my mother? by Dr Seuss.

    A new children’s book.

    was by far the best assignment because I enjoy reading children books and want to know all about computers.

    Get real! Pepsi

    by

    Wow, just think about it. Do you think that parents could really be blown away by the taste of a drink and forget about what their child may have done. As a parent. I don’t think so. This commercial for a new type of Pepsi called Pepsi Next was very …

    What does the font say?

    by

    What is a story? How do you tell it in a logical, compelling way? What are the different components of it? How can audio and video add (or subtract from it)? These were all questions that I started to ponder when I joined DS106. I felt like I had …

    Photo blitz around the house

    by

    No one ever took pictures of me as a baby. Growing up, as the fifth of the six children in my family, I was the only one who did not have a baby picture. In fact the first picture of me was when I was 3 years old. Everyone else …

    Musicless Music Video

    by

    This was another fun one for me–music videos can be some of the strangest films, even when the actual music is playing. Just like the actual song, a music video is often a piece of art and an artist’s expression in and of itself. That’s why I like this assignment …

    Do The Hitch Cut!

    by

    I gave this one a shot because I just think there are endless possibilities. This technique, as Alfred Hitchcock describes, is a way to use editing to change the emotion of a scene. As he describes, the same reaction can appear very differently depending on what you cut to/from. …
