    Week 4 Weekly Summary


    Once again I’m doing the diary-format for the weekly summary. Today I watched the video for the week, did the reading by Ebert, and watched three of the videos–the draft of my post is in the works.


    I tweeted out the Daily Create and made a post about

    F+or 4.5 stars, I did the Narrative Ambiance assignment, which asked us to:

    Take a favorite poem, inspiring quote or passage from a book (or even a movie monologue, if you like!) and record yourself reading it. Then set it to original video you’ve recorded with some kind of music …

    Film Scene Analysis


    I was ecstatic to find that the ending to Tetsuo: The Iron Man, was in our list of options for movie scene analysis. It has long been a favorite movie of mine, I’ve always admired how such a low budget effort could have such a perfect storm of fantastical and …

    Video Assignment #2: My Mom!


    The assignment was to take related clips from a TV Show or movie and cut them together. This seemed like a daunting task at first, searching through each episode of a tv show to find the exact clips needed. Luckily enough, I remembered Regular Show has plenty of characters with …

    Week 4 is Over in DS106


    Week 4 was our week to do video in DS106. I enjoyed this week just as much as audio week as I have a passion for doing video and audio. I also got to fuse those two passions together in one of the video assignments! On to week four!

    The …

    What a Week it Has Been!!!


    Week 4 is complete and now we move on to the Final Project portion of the course!

    For this week, I learned a lot about film techniques and how much of an impact they have on a piece of work. I have always been under the impression that the work …

    Look. Listen. Analyze.


    This reflection proved to be my favorite assignment of the week. Being able to incorporate what we learned this week into analyzing a movie clip ourselves was very telling to how much we had learned. For this assignment, we analyzed the clip in three different ways.

    First: Analyze the camera …

    Reading: Angles and Cuts

    The first video I watched was the video on the match cut. When I researched this further I realized it was also known as a “match on action.” A match on action is an editing strategy in which a singular action is seen from multiple different …

    In week 4 of DS106, I learned a lot about reading,analyzing and working with videos. I really enjoyed the interaction with the class this week as well. I felt like I got to converse with more people than ever before and put more time into looking into all of the …

    Look. Listen. Analyze!


    The scene I chose is from Scent of a Woman, with Al Pacino. The first part I will analyze is, 

    Analyzing the camera work: 

    For this part, the volume is on mute and I looked specifically at the camera angles and views that they used in filming this movie…

    Another Chewbacca Mom Parody


    The Cereal Killer was created and debuted in 2006 with the film “Cereal Killer.” He wears a Scary Movie mask and wields a knife and a mace & chain. He lives only to make bad jokes and kill anyone in his way. Probably anyone not in his way too. Since …

    Reading Movies Reflection


    I found Ebert’s suggestions on how to thoroughly read movies pretty fascinating. I’ve long been captivated by cinema and it was once my dream to be a screenwriter, I would often re-watch my favorite movies to exhaustion attempting to gain a better understanding of what made them seem so brilliant …

    Week 4: Are We There Yet?


    I’m really happy with what I have created for this class so far but I am also happy that this semester is almost over! I think I have improved so much in photo editing alone because I have to do it so frequently for the daily creates and I love …

    The Good, The Bad, And The Unexperienced


    Going into this scene analysis assignment, I was a little nervous. Sometimes I have trouble with analyzing camera elements because I don’t have a lot of experience with filming professional looking video or video production. I’m really a camera on a tripod kind of girl. So, I went into this …

    An Amazing Video Week


    This course has been unfolding precious mysteries for me. In the previous weeks I was able to organize my personal blog, learn photo editing and tell audio stories. This week has been more amazing for me. It was related to the video world. I was able to have a glance …

    How to Look, Listen and Analyze a Movie Scene


    For the “Look” and “Listen” parts of the scene, I made points and elaborated them in the form of bullets. The “Analyze” part is more like a summary as it is a reflection of both the “Look” and “Listen” parts moving along together.

    Look   Camera movement backwards to forward. This…

    Roger Ebert on reading a movie


    I must confess that when I started reading this article this did not make any sense. It was all gibberish to me. I believe what I had missed was to actually read a bit about the writer to know what authority does he has on movies. So I looked at …
