    Luigi Trips Balls

    I don’t think this was actually an assignment listed–might have been, might not.  Anyway, I took a couple videos off of youtube that involved Mario and Luigi and Peach, kept the music playing from the festival, mixed all the stuff ...

    So this weeks tasks are remixing.  But what exactly is a remix? In short form, a remix can be anything and everything.  According to Remix Manifesto and Everything is a Remix, literally everything invented in a Modern Era has been ...

    Burger King!

    I can honeslty say this was my least favorite thing I’ve had to do all semester because it relied entirely on an online editor that happened to break down and only work in parts the entire time I worked on ...

    Weekly Summary 11-12

    This week was a mixture of emotions.  It started off really fun, and then was indifferent, and now it’s a pain in my ass.  I did some things that I wanted to do, trashed some plans, made new ones, trashed ...

    Delicious Peas****.5

    So for this assignment, we were supposed to make a documentary on something that lasted 30 seconds. The idea was to cram something that provided knowledge about something to other people into a short amount of time.  The process made ...

    Do The Hitchcock****

    So for this assignment, we had to show how changing a simple cut of a video could change the view of a character’s values, beliefs, etc.  The idea came from this Albert Hitchcock video where he changed the middle clip ...

    Wise Old Men***

    This was a nice startup assignment to get me going for the week.  I got to experiment with iMovie a bit more and figure out things like transitions and credits and such.  I did lots of different things for this.  ...

    How to Videos

    I think that How to videos are a youtube exclusive thing (aside from gaming guides).  For example, I learned how to tie a bowtie on youtube. There are many other examples of this concept, from how to get a six ...

    Scene Analysis

    So I’ve taken a class on movie analysis (Intro to Film Studies), so I’ve done this before.  I ended up choosing the scene in The Dark Knight where Batman interrogates the Joker.  I was torn between that and the opening ...

    Daily Creates

    I was a little confused about this weeks daily creates and what to do with them.  The first was to get a picture of a lisence plate that caught your eye. Then there was the one about convincing someone that ...

    Hidden Stories**

    So for this assignment, we had to put a random story in the middle of a webpage.  I inserted part of “The Happy Prince” by Oscar Wilde into a Wikipedia article on Kim Jong-Il.  Honestly, I don’t think there is ...
