    Part 6: Coming Full Circle

    For the final piece in my storyline, Winnie and The Bees showdown in an epic finale which tests the resolve of both parties stuck in their stubborn ways. Well…maybe not. Personally, I like to leave things a little open ended and let the reader do some interpretation. Therefore, this assignment gives a few visual clues […]

    Part 5: Rounding the Troops

    In the second to last installment of Winnie’s great adventure we see him visiting some old friends before his final confrontation with the bees.

    Part 3: Making A Statement

    For part 3 of Winnie’s saga we see a more political and media savvy version of the pooh bear. I searched for quite a while to find an assignment that would fit the bill but in the end I decided to create something new. This was another jump into design assignments with my photo edited […]

    Week 13 and 14 Summary

    As I’ve come to expect, the content from each week grows increasingly more difficult. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I really enjoyed some of the assignments this week through the use of remixing. It can be a very thin line in the world of remixes. While it is important to give the […]

    Alan Goes On Vacation Remix

    This assignment was one of the most difficult I’ve done in quite a while. The Mash-up Assignment which is called “Where Should Alan Go on Vacation?” is completed using the web browser program Mozilla Popcorn. Having never used it before, there was a bit of a learning curve in completing this assignment. I started off […]

    Creep on a movie scene [Remixed]: DS106-ersizing

    I started off on this assignment not knowing what to expect but eventually found it to be somewhat of a fun and interesting experience. I enjoyed taking a piece of content and making something completely random out of it. The Remix generator itself produces its fair share of great matches and equally dismal matches. In […]

    Video Game Cover Mashup

    This week I created a mashup assignment called Video Game Cover Mashup. As a big fan of video games, I’ve always appreciated the artistic styling and designs that go into creating these games. I thought it would be a cool idea to mashup a few of the most iconic video game covers and create something […]

    Rocky Fight Club

    For my second mashup assignment, I decided to jump into the world of photoshop and complete a Movie Mashup in the form of a poster. I thought for quite a while on this one and made a mashup using Fight Club and the movie Rocky. While the plots of the two movies aren’t the same […]

    Sports Bird Mashup

    For one of my Mashup Assignments, I chose to do Your Favorite Teams Mashup. Being a big sports fan this one was right up my alley, so I knew what I wanted to go with ahead of time. I decided to mashup my two favorite football teams, with one being the Philadelphia Eagles and the […]

    Week 11 and 12 Summary

    These past two have definitely been a new and challenging experience. As with a lot of  computer related mediums I am a novice to video so I really had to learn from the ground up. I have used Windows Movie Maker in the past for a couple projects and assignments but that was using simple […]

    Having a Conversation With Myself

    I’ll start off by saying that this was a very challenging assignment. I knew I could probably try and go with a webcam style conversation but I liked the idea of doing the split screen. The problem was I had literally no idea where to start.

    Playing Through the Pain Mashup

      For this Sports Mashup, I wanted to go with something a little different than normal highlights with cool moves and awesome catches. I made a mashup involving some of the gutsiest performances in sports history. One of the worst things about sports is the terrible injuries which can occur. Sometimes their stingers which simply […]

    My Daily Creates

    1) Sounds of Construction A tale of sounds around me, most of which are very unpleasant. For every bird singing and cricket chirping there is the sound of cement being made and saws slicing through steel. 2) No Flag, No Country For the flag of my country I went with a traditional and well known […]

    I’ve never been one to really attach myself to a specific number but I do have an affinity for the number 5. Maybe it was the result of my middle school basketball number or taking too many AP courses in high school. Anyways, I decided it would fit well in the assignment Movies by Numbers. […]

    Those Bleeping Idiots!

      The task of this assignment was to do your best FCC impression by censoring a movie scene/clip. I searched for quite a while on what movie to do because it had to have a few great scenes with a lot of cursing. I ended up settling on the movie Pineapple Express which I saw […]
