    Progress Report 2


    I have my characters! Introducing Maeve Hunter, Farha Hammad, and Danielle Carter (in order):


    I also have detailed character profiles… that I still need to actually type up, because they’re in my notebook.

    WHEN they are typed, they’ll go up on the Super! tumblr page, since that seemed the …

    Final project brainstorm 1


    Sorry, the song’s been in my  head since I read the assignment post. Here’s some thoughts/brainstorming for the final project ( transcribed from my notebook with additional comments as I think of them):

    4 categories:

    Writing Visual Design Audio

    ehhh, maybe some video as well? not as comfortable with it, …

    Tutorial: Video Mashup


    I just realized I hadn’t done my tutorial yet when- lo and behold! I see there’s no tutorial for the assignment I just completed! And it’s still fresh in my brain! Sign from God.

    First, you need to download the 4k Video Downloader. Google “4k video downloader” and click on …

    The Impossible Challenge


    My final mashup assignment was “The Contest Nobody Could Win (Video-Mashup Edition” (4 stars). The hardest part of this was figuring out 6 movies that I liked and wanted to mash. The next hardest was figuring out what clips I wanted to use.

    Honestly, some of these are dead giveaways. …

    The Princess Bride and the Last Crusade


    This assignment, “This Doesn’t Belong Here” (4 stars), requires a mashup of two famous movie scenes.

    I love both the Princess Bride and the Indiana Jones series, so I decided to mix up those two. I chose the scene from the Princess Bride when Inigo Montoya kills the six-fingered man …

    Cancer sucks, so get a tat


    For this remix, I immediately decided to do breast cancer. Not only is the ribbon instantly recognizable, but it’s a cancer that runs in my family. So, what to do with the ribbon?

    At first, I debated replacing the ‘O’ in ‘NO’ with the ribbon, but decided in the end …

    Daily Create 11/10


    The shells and sea rocks they had picked together while walking side by side on a beach in South Carolina. The wheat was from a stalk in Kansas that they drove by on that one wild spring break cross-country drive. The screw had fallen out of her chair in that …

    Thanksmas Sunday


    I completed the 4-star “Holiday Mashup” assignment (was rated 4 1/2, I rated it 3). I have some experience with mixing holidays; when my mom came home for R&R during her first deployment, we celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas, my parents’ anniversary, and New Year’s Day all in one weekend– Thanksmasversary Year.…

    My Favorite Thing to Do: Video Games!


    The 3 1/2 star “My Favorite Thing to Do”.

    This one was pretty simple in theory, and a lot more complicated in execution. What’s pretty much my only hobby that’s a) interesting to actually watch and b) doesn’t require me to ask a coach to film me? Video games!

    Ok, …

    Music Mixup Mash: Waltzing “on My Own”


    (…Why did this embed so big??)

    For the 4 1/2 star “Classical-Modern Mashup” assignment, I mixed the music video to Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” with Chopin’s Waltz No. 12. This one was pretty hard; the rating is maybe a bit high, but far more accurate than other ratings I’ve …

    I really, really like space, guys. Seriously.

    For the 4-star “Compilation Video!” assignment, I chose the theme of space! I’ve been planning out what I wanted to use all week, and I didn’t realize until I went back and looked at the assignment sheet that they chose shuttle launches. Oh, …

    Video Essay: The Edge of Night


    It is 1am on Monday morning, and I just realized I completely forgot to upload my video essay. Or do the Weekly Summary. So. Happy Halloween.

    For my video essay, I did the scene from The Return of the King where Pippin sings for the Steward of Gondor. The Steward, …

    Letter to the Past


    For my last assignment, I did “Dear Sixteen Year Old, Me” for 4 stars. It was 4 1/2, I rated it a 3, and it dropped a half star. For me, the hardest part was the thinking. What did my 16yo self need to know? Definitely that life gets better …

    The Cathedral


    The Cathedral’s original purpose had been lost to time; all that remained were the legends that surrounded it and the gardens that, wild and untended, gave it a decrepit look.

    The Sea Captain built it with his own two hands, it was whispered, though the tales failed to explain how …

    Trying to Spell: The Eternal Struggle


    For the assignment “Signing Words” (rated 4 1/2 stars, I rated it 3), I tried to spell a word in American Sign Language. I have never signed anything in my life other than “Jesus” and “barf” (don’t ask). I had a few outtakes, mostly of misspelling the word I chose. …

    How to Fold a Paper Crane


    In this video tutorial (How to Video, 4 1/2 stars), I showed how to fold an origami paper crane– pretty much what it says on the tin. I learned how to do this when I lived in Japan (5th and 6th grade); the older kids were going on a trip …

    Weekly Summary Week 8: I suck at math


    So, I did a 4 1/2 star, a 3 1/2 star, and a 2 star assignment. The astute may notice that this comes out to 10 stars, when we only had 8 stars assigned. This is partly because I pretended that the Google Maps project was only 3 1/2 stars. …

    Radio Review: The Meme Show


    I’m going to review a radio show that I didn’t actually get to listen when it aired: The Meme Show. Basically, I’m liveblogging.

    I really like history, so I’m glad they’re going into the history of memes. Also, really pretty background music.

    Lol “temes”, ok. Also, I totally remember email …

    Website Remix



    I got really stuck on this assignment. I just had no freaking clue what to do. Then, when I was scrolling through the assignments for my 8 stars, I got this idea- do a “life assignment” that looked really easy but would never happen. I decided to remix the …

    Dream Vacation: Peru, Jordan, Egypt, Antarctica


    For the 3 1/2 star assignment “Create Your Dream Vacation on Pinterest!” I chose to create a board with what might be one of the most expensive vacations I could think of (hey, ideal not practical):

    Ok, that picture should link to the Pinterest board.

    First, I decided on where …

    Ibn Battuta + Google Maps


    This web assignment is Google History Maps Story, and I chose Abu Abdullah Mohammad Ibn Battuta, more commonly referred to as simply Mohammad Ibn Battuta or just Ibn Battuta. (Fun fact: ibn means “son” in Arabic, so “ibn Battuta” means “son of Battuta”; this is my three years of Arabic …

    LLBean Website Flashback


    I visit LL Bean on those occasions when I just need really, really well-made clothing that’s actually meant to last outdoors. In fact, I just got two new flannel shirts for the winter, plus two camisoles. Only two, because LL Bean is sadly expensive, and even though my mom treated …
