    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…

    As we get closer and closer to the end of school I just want to say that I’m grateful for learning a lot from this class. This week was a busy one but I was able to hang in there. This week’s focus was on Mashup and Remix. And to …

    Horror Text


    Horror text between me and Lilian Perez.

    Imagine you’re just hitting up your friend just talking about each other’s day and then something unexplainable happens. This happened to me when I was texting my friend Lilian. She told me she was coming to my house because I told her to …

    Friends on the Other side – Princess and the Frog.

    This song is one of my favorite songs from Disney. It’s from the Princess and the Frog movie. I was wondering what song I wanted to use but most of my favorite songs contain explicit lyrics and we can’t have …

    Where’s Waldo


    Pokemon and Super Smash Bros Ultimate are two of my favorite games so I added them together in this mash-up. I wanted to try Super Smash and Dragon Quest but I couldn’t find a good picture to mash up. But then I found this and I decided to go with …

    Your very own Spubble


    This assignment was really interesting. I was looking for many pictures to use and I finally found one that was based on a true story. I was hanging outside on a hotel with the heat baking my skin. After a while, I headed back to the beach with my family …

    Week 11


    This week was once again a slow but fast one. I participated with my group on creating our video and it went very well as you will see. I hope the video helps to bring in a perspective of life after this virus. I know life won’t nearly be the …

    Post COVID-19 Update


    We met on Monday to go over when we should send all of our videos to James Fendely, since he is very good at adding the videos together. My plan for the video was for me to talk to the camera and then continue my narration doing a voice-over various …

    Week 10


    Ah, welcome back I hope y’all are doing well. This week I watched videos on how film-making work and read an article about how to read a film. In the article, Robert Ebert talked about the positive and negative positions of a character. It was interesting because I never thought …

    The Witcher Scene


    The scene I chose for my video essay was the Genralt and Renfri fight scene from the Netflix series, the Witcher. I definitely had to rewatch the scene several times so I could see the film-making technique being used. The technique I chose was the camera and its movements. The …

    Week 9


    Due to the predicament that we’re in this week was a very light week. This week we went over the radio shows that we did and the Breakfast club show went really well. I enjoyed the concept of interviewing people from the 1980s. I went into detail in my blog …

    Breakfast Club


    I really liked the idea of interviewing people from the 80s. The host’s mother really went in-depth about the music culture and the fashion in the 1980s She said when MTV was created the kids were able to see new artists on tv rather than afternoon shows or in concerts. …

    I decided to rework the assignment Contradiction Creation because of the situation we’re in. This picture is from California in the 1980s. California right now is under statewide quarantine due to the Coronavirus. So for this Contradiction Creation, I changed it to where COVID-19 gives a quote about the situation …

    Radio Design


    So this is the promo that I thought of for our radio show, Social Media: 80’s Rewrite. I created this promo from Canvas which is a very good website for those trying to design posters, logos, or promos for their shows. The picture on the right is the original design. …

    Music creates Feelings


    This song brought me back to memory lane. Like I said in my short message it’s funny when you’re playing music in certain situations in life and whenever you listen to that specific song, memories of that specific situation reoccur. This isn’t the only song that reminds me of situations …

    Tongue Twister


    This tongue twister is a doozy. I had trouble with this one. But this is a common twister that had been known for years. I remember this song from elementary school. Tongue twisters are a sequence of words or sounds, typically of an alliterative kind, that is difficult to pronounce …

    Tense Feeling


    I remember when I was in high school watching The Handmaid’s Tale and I heard this quote. This quote really hit me because of its meaning. Better never means better for everyone. It always means worse for some. And this can be related to everyday life. You can’t make everyone …

    Color: The white helps bring out the red message. Red usually means something bad or important. Signs that are red and white mainly signify regulations that you must follow. For example, this sign indicates that the object is part of the Fire Department Connections. But the white background helps signify …

    Favorite Movie Quote


    Bad Boys for Life is my favorite movie for 2020 hands down. I didn’t come into the movie theaters with a lot of expectations because I didn’t watch the first two. But boy, was I impressed. The action, the plot, the climax, the suspense, the music, the acting, everything was …

    Contradiction Creation


    This assignment was actually very creative. I enjoyed the idea to have a beautiful picture but a depressing or negative quote. I wanted this to be related to the 1980s so I had a picture from 1980s California. Just look at the scenery. The palm trees, the blue sky, the …
