    Remashmix Week


    This week was mashups and remixes! Some how it felt like even more work then other weeks have been. (Maybe because it is just that crazy time in the semester.) This week all my mashups and remixes related back to spies and our class theme, focusing mainly on action in …

    3 movies 1 poster


    My final mashup of the week was the Mashup Those Movies mashup for 3 1/2 stars. For this assignment you needed to take 3 different films and put them together in a believable movie poster. At first I started by just looking up spy movie posters to see what the …

    A mission bond mashup


    One of the mashups I took on this week was the Two Movies, One Line for 3 1/2 stars. I was excited by this one because it had a cool premise about combining different films. (Also I knew the person who originally put out the assignment so I thought it’d …

    Magnifying Bond


    I took on the assignment This Doesn’t Belong here mashup worth 4 stars.

    So at first I read this assignment wrong so I did a totally different assignment. I thought it said combine an iconic film scene with something that does belong subtly. (Not combine two iconic scenes.) So I …

    The Final Progress show


    The video show was/is much harder than the radio show was. Since it was video we had to meet up more and get more done in short condensed times to make sure everything got done in time. It was also a lot of learning of what we could and could …

    Mission within a Mission


    So part of this week we are supposed to come up with an idea about a mission the whole class could potentially take on together. I think it could be interesting if maybe we split the spies up into groups all taking on the same mission all competing. Now I …

    The infamous interview


    This week Agent Fawn was interviewed by top ds106 leaders. The following video is a segment of some of the remotely done interview.


    The resume question in particular was great because Agent Fawn actually already had a resume created in a previous week so her story lines up with …

    Mission Impossible in movement


    For this week’s scene analysis I chose a scene from Mission Impossible. In particular this scene comes at the films climax as the character crawl along the top of a moving train. I used the critical thinking methods from Tony Zhou’s videos as the primary element I drew on for …

    A daily create story


    As secret agents much of what we do is about deception and blending in to gain information. At least much of what I do certainly fits in that category. As all agents know the stakes are high in the intelligence community and one wrong move… well there are different outcomes …
