    Final Summary: Final Project

    I guess this is my last blog post for this class. It’s kinda sad. I’ve really enjoyed this class and all the assignments we’ve done and all that I’ve learned. I definitely had the most fun with this final project though. It incorporated a bunch of the skills I’ve used throughout the semester which was super fun. Here was my process: I started with taping up a sheet in my living room to use as a backdrop for the close-up shots. I then had my boyfriend help me film all the clips using a tripod and iPhone attachment. We had […]

    Final Project – Weekly Summary

    This final is pretty open ended. My group and I decided that the most important parts to focus on were 1) making the project fit into multiple medias and 2) relate to the course theme, the 80s. The two media platforms we decided to post our project on were Soundcloud and YouTube, some of the most popular sites for audio and visuals, respectively. Our project is going to relate to

    Final Project Plan

    I’m planning that the final project will be a history documentary about an alternate dystopian future caused by the Coronavirus, where I’ll be combining video, images, and audio together to paint the future history of the geopolitical ramifications of a Coronavirus which rapidly mutates out of control, becomes significantly more deadly, and eviscerates the economies […]

    Week Thirteen!

    Well, the time has come. We are officially rolling into the final week of classes. How did that happen!?! Now that we are nearing the end, the DS106 students are hard at work piecing together their final endeavors. For me, I have decided to dive into the the AIDs Epidemic of the 1980’s and the […]

    Preparing for the Big One

    This week I dug deep to start the groundwork of my final project. Since mine is about video games in the 80s, my first step was research, research, research! Well, I won’t deny that I got almost all of my information from Wikipedia, but I was able to find the main points I was searching […]

    final project plan!

    Idea: “I am Legend” approach but 80’s style Hey everyone, so one of my favorite post-pandemic/apocalyptic movies ever is “I Am Legend” with Will Smith. For my final project, I decided to take this movie and put a couple of twists on it.  First, I’m going to try my best to include an 80’s decade theme to it. For example, in the writing and audio parts of the story I’ll try to include typical 80’s slang that is used, and also maybe talk about items that were typically used in this decade (such as a walkman) as well as make references to movies, icons, or political figures or events that someone from this decade would use.  Spoiler alert!  The story I’ll be following is my character (I haven’t chosen a name yet) will be the last survivor in the pandemic, and she is trying to discover a cure for the disease. Those who were affected by the virus are now zombies, but similar to the movie I Am Legend, they only appear at night/can’t be exposed to sunlight. The story will follow the character as she goes about her life and her struggle to find a cure (she’s a scientist), her hopes that other people may be out there, and reflections on her past life. Elements I will be using (that I know of […]

    Final Project Ideas

    This week we came up with three ideas for our final project. I suggested making a sort of Top Hits radio or video show. The songs would be current popular songs that are remixed to sound as if they were created in the 80s. The video below is an example of just that. I do […]

    Progress Report: Final Project

    We have finally reached the end of the class and are starting on the project we have been talking about all semester! And I am very excited. For my final project, I am going to be recreating part of the “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Huston music video by with my own vocals. I am going to try and replicate every outfit and scene from about a minute of the music video (roughly 0:57-2:03, which is the first verse and chorus). I am going to record myself singing the song instead of Whitney to lip synch to. I […]
