    Final Weekly Summary



    I noticed that everything is due on Friday rather than Sunday, so I got started right away with my story. I wrote a lot. This was definitely the most exciting part of the class, writing our own story for the final. I have always loved watching …

    Draco Malfoy the Muggle


    “I failed, I’m a failure. What happens now?” Draco thought silently. He is by himself, reminiscing over what happened, or rather what didn’t happen. Dumbledore is not dead. He’s still alive.

    Draco failed to kill Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Why is this so bad? …

    How to: Draco’s Return


    I made this photo edit, inspired by the design assignment prompt, Are We There Yet?.  I took two separate photos, the character Draco and what is supposed to be his home back in the Wizarding World. Because in the story, he left, I wanted to make an edit of …

    Final Reflection


    Throughout the semester, I realized that I improved on my photoshop editing skills. I also got better with taking photos in general by taking in the tips we learned. I’m way better at making GIFs, too! Now I can make cute ones or funny ones.

    The most challenging unit for …

    How To: Random Post Its


    These are the “post-it notes” that I used in my story.  I took the inspiration from the “Post-It Notes and Grocery List” prompt, in the Visual Assignment Bank. Since one of the characters in the story is the owner of a bakery, I thought of a few fun post-its to …

    How To: Sam’s Bakery Logo

    Created by LogoMakr.com

    I created a logo for one of the settings in my story. I got the idea from the Design Assignments prompt, Create A Logo. This is a very simple logo that is used to represent the bakery that one of the characters in my story owns.  …

    How To: Draco GIF


    One of the media pieces I made to include in the story is a GIF. I used the prompt, Been There from the Animated GIF Assignment Bank. The assignment said to create a GIF from a movie that shows a relatable emotion, expression, or moment. I chose this scene when …

    Weekly Summary 4


    I’m going to be real for a second, I feel like I’ve been in a slump this week. But worry not, I was able to finish everything for this week!

    For starters, I learned about “reading” movies. I looked more into the editing/filming techniques. Though I learned that in one …

    Look at, Listen to, and Analyze the Joker


    I decided to analyze a film that is recognized by many except by me. Crazy to think about it but I don’t think I’ve ever fully watched the Batman movie, The Dark Knight. I know, insane! But here I am, about to analyze a scene of the Joker.


    There …

    “Reading” Movies?


    I learned from “How to Read a Movie”, that reading a movie is basically analyzing the scene. Roger Ebert mentioned an example that he heard from film critic, John West. The example is that you can analyze films just like how football coaches study game plays. I never really …

    Weekly Summary 3


    The assignments for this week were all very new to me because I think I am the most unfamiliar with Sound Storytelling. I am glad that there were several examples and resources to look at.

    At the beginning of the week, I started watching Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad explain …

    Moon Graffiti


    Moon Graffiti began with beeping and static noises represent the setting. The conversation exchanged through the radio became hectic when the characters talked faster and the alarm going off. There is an abrupt ending when the voices and the noises cut off. The audio picks back up after a few …

    TED Radio and Scottlo


    The TED Radio Hour is a short audio clip, with commentary included.

    From the short clip, I learned that when the audio has multiple speakers, the narration shifts once that new speaker enters the conversation. Once a story is being told, the background music is added. The calming music was …

    Ira Glass & Jad Abumrad


    In the first video of Ira Glass speaking about Storytelling, he elaborated on the main components that go into telling a story.

    He mentioned that audibly telling a story is much different than telling a story with written words. There are two major aspects of telling a story: Anecdote and …

    Weekly Summary 2


    To be honest, this week has been a bit overwhelming. I made the mistake of thinking that I had more time than I actually did. But I am thankful that I was able to complete all of the assignments.

    I started by reading through all of the assignments for the …

    The Gym


    Earlier this week, I decided to take pictures of the gym I go to. While I was there, I realized that the gym is a perfect example of the design concept, Rythm/Pattern.

    The gym is divided into different sections, depending on the type of exercises. There is an abs section, …
