(^I don’t usually have audio with video assignments but today is special ^) So I originally planned on learning the thriller dance but that was just not possible with everything going on plus the fact that my video quality is quite bad so I thought making a compilation video would be better. I originally used … Continue reading Spooky Scary Thriller
So for our final project we have to do a 4 genre mashup that involves our host character.

(^I know I’ve posted this song before but its the song’s lyrics so yeah^) Today’s daily create (11/11/15) (I’m 30 minutes late but it still counts as Wednesday….yeah.) is kind of vaguer than the usual vague daily creates.

Daily Creates (1,2,3)
16 stars worth of video assignments (1, 2, 3) + mini-documentary
Mini-Documentary (here) I know I went over the time limit but I had such good material!
For this video assignment worth 5 stars, I did the “Morse Code Challenge“! This was actually kind of hard just because I kept running out of breath and was trying not to laugh. The answer is: Be sure to drink your Ovaltine by orders of little orphan Annie.
For today’s daily create (11/6/15) we had to draw our host characters so I drew The Red Reaper! Tadah~~! @ds106dc #tdc1398 red reaper drawing! pic.twitter.com/YcnqN6YLqt — Head Reaper (@TheHeadReaper) November 7, 2015

For this next video assignment, I chose to do the “Signing Words” project worth 5 stars. The Red Reaper has been very gracious today and lent me his assistance.

So for one of my video assignments I did the “Instant Replay” project worth 3.5 stars. I caught sight of The Red Reaper making his rounds and decided to sneak a video of him!

For today’s daily create (11/5/15) we had to write a 6 line poem about our purpose in life. For a quick daily create, this was rather intimidating and personal but I gave it my best shot. Poetry isn’t my strong suit but here it is: I want to make the world more transparent, but not … Continue reading ___Transparency___
For today’s daily create (11/4/15) we had to read an excerpt of some fanfiction!

Ive only read … Continue reading %~FanFic Reading~%
How To Read A Movie Response: I thought that the notion of placing someone slightly right of the center to make them be in the most ideal place was quite interesting. Supposedly it has to do with golden ratios which I have learned about in several classes ranging from art to math. A lot more goes … Continue reading @@Taking Reading to the Next Level@@
This week for 5 out of the 10 stars worth of video assignments required this week I did the DIY Product Commercial! I filmed a video of myself raving about the new “Acne Hider” that is super easy to use and completely socially acceptable. Here it is: I wish the camera was better on my … Continue reading *&*The Acne Hider*&*
So this week was probably my favorite week but also one of the hardest ones for me. I found it difficult to incorporate so many host characters when we know so little about them. For example visual projects were pretty much out of the question because of the lack of pictures of hosts and same … Continue reading Weekly Summary 10/23/15

Anyways~ I used the ever … Continue reading |__ The Girl Without A Pearl Earring __|
