    The Final Curtain


    BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front):  From this course, I gained a tremendous amount of capabilities to tell stories in the digital world but also left a lot on the table. 

    When I first started the semester, there was a wide, open space in my mind, not knowing what I’d be …

    Jump Shrimp Remix


    This remix is intended to be one of opposites–find a completed assignment and create its oxymoron, something that is contradictory to what was made. My first assignment is the lower SoundCloud link, called Quote of the Day and it’s from my Audio Assignment 210. I pulled a quoted from my …

    Where’s Waldo? Remix Generator


    I clicked the REMIX IT from the Write a Movie Review, and up popped “Where’s Waldo? It.” The task is to slip Waldo’s name quickly into an audio assignment. I chose a voice-over narration that I had previously produced that also had background sound of an old airplane flying, just …

    Exercise and Socialize Mashup with Posters


    For MashupAssignments1864, Mash Thyself, Before Ye Trash Thyself, I took the two pieces of work from previous assignments and added them to my Exercise and Socialize video. Surprisingly, they all worked together, basically with a common theme of getting up and moving with your people, because you’re happy! I stretched …

    Flying with Josephine, from Creation to Credits!


    Last week, I detailed the technology of how I produced my movie and it was pretty much the same but much more efficient this time around. Just to recap, I used CloudConvert after downloading everything using the Firefox browser from YouTube, getting video in MP4 and audio on MP3. The …

    #tdc3719 #ds106 Personal Anti-Bucket List.
    #1 NEVER EAT LUTEFISK AGAIN. Soak Cod in Lye, then boil in water, then serve with butter. Yes, the lye is rinsed off but not all– it is the worst, most God-awful food on the planet. I love Norwegians, but this?!! 'Nuf said. …

    Phi, The Golden Ratio Movie


    Just learning about the Golden Ratio was fascinating to me, from a sculpture who came to visit a few years back when I had a bed and breakfast at my home. He explained that it is very pleasing to the eye, that people feel comfortable, when they see a composition …

    Final Project Ideas


    Wade, Katie and I have started discussing final project ideas and are just in the brainstorming phase. We are thinking of a video format for the project and want to include the theme of joy of creativity, which will definitely be exhibited by our work! The assignment says the project …

    Stories Created from Dailies


    We never knew what was going to happen in our lives. Some young people, early in high school and after, had it all planned out. They set themselves on a trajectory with a plan of education, training, family, maybe the military, where they planned to live and what hobbies they …

    Look Ma! See What I Learned!?!


    My skills have blossomed, and so has this photo collage! What was once a static set of five photos is now a photo video with background sound. Wonders are not ceasing. I took the five images from VisualAssignment2109 and decided that if these are supposed to be Places of Peace, …

    The Sunday Radio Hour +


    Tonight’s DS106 Radio featured Death of the Painter and Coroner’s Tale at the 8 p.m., slot. My team, Radio7, created Death of the Painter and it was fun to listen to our brainchild live! It was also a little surreal to hear it “over the airwaves.”   I was using my …

    Weekly Summary–Week Seven


    This week has been wonderful to finally work with people who I’ve only been observing through their creativity online. I was happy to meet SIX real people in our meeting on Monday and to participate in our collective creative process! I wish we had collaborated together since the beginning of …

    Radio7 Progress Notes


    Our group, Radio7, is doing well, having finished our first week in the creation of our radio show that will be ready to air on Friday, March 11.  We have a vision and a task at hand with some granularity.  We know we are producing a murder mystery radio show …

    Bumping in the Night


    This bumper is for AudioAssignments2616, part of our radio show that we’re putting together. I don’t want to give any more away so suffice it to say, I found two pieces of sound: background music and birds chirping. Then I recorded a message to keep listening to Radio7 for the …

    Radio7 Show Introduction Draft


    For this audio assignment, I’m bending the rules a bit in the interests of the radio show project. How about a dark take on Audio Assignment 1745, “Good Morning Message to the Village? It’s still a message to a village, that is, our village in DS10,6 and a message of …

    Radio7 Logo on the Brain


    For our radio show design project, I decided to create a generic logo for our radio show group. We are named Radio7. It’s simple, clean and there are seven of us doing a radio show that could always morph into something other vision! We didn’t want to be tied down …

    Weekly Summary–Week Six


    Design Week was easier from the perspective that the apps were more straightforward and easier to use, saving a lot of time. This was a much less aggravating, and much more Joyful week. Bob would be in a more blissful place this week if he were taking the course and …

    This is Good Advise!


    Inventing a Public Service Advertisement (PSA) for Design Assignment 817 that may fit with my long story and our good friend Bob’s theme of Joy in all that we do, well, seemed to be to get out of the house and go hang with your peeps! Imagine that what you …

    Keep Moving Forward!


    For DesignAssignments 1887, Motivational Poster, the task was to find an image and design a poster for that situation. I went at it backwards because my mantra for many moons has been to Keep the Forward Momentum Going, and that also (hopefully) will fit in with my long story and …
