    Redub The Audio

    _cpzh4: Take a classic movie (or heck any movie you like), and rescript the audio of a key scene. You will want to re-write the lines to change the meaning or intent of the scene, delete the original audio, and record your own (this can be done many ways, voiceover in iMovie, recording the audio and editing the track in any other movie editor). For my example, I took Howard Beale's on camera rampage from "Network", and changed it to a diatribe on being bored in school., _cre1l: Video, _d415a:, _d5fpr: Alan Levine, _clrrx: 131, _cyevm: <a rel='tag'>VideoAssignments131</a>, _cztg3: <a rel='tag'>VideoAssignments</a>, _d180g: 660

    Cropped Signs

    _cpzh4: We think of creation as addition, but there is a form of creation by deletion (e.g. Newspaper Blackout poetry In this assignment, you need to change, alter, enhance the meaning of a sign by cropping out parts of it. This should be doing in camera, but could also be done in post- crop out, but do not photoshop in any extras. Also, be sure to describe in you caption or blog post what the original sign said. For the example below, the sign said "No Canada Tennis Parking" but by removing the last word, it makes it sound more like a radical anti-tennis call for action., _cre1l: Visual, _d415a:, _d5fpr: cogdog, _clrrx: 129, _cyevm: <a rel='tag'>VisualAssignments129</a>, _cztg3: <a rel='tag'>VisualAssignments</a>, _d180g: 650

    Troll Quotes

    _cpzh4: Find an image of a well known figure, add to it a famous quote by someone related in some way to the figure in the image and then attribute the quote to a third, related figure. From the official site: How It Works 1) Get a picture of someone people idolize. Obi Wan Kenobi, Barack Obama, Captain Kirk — any beloved public figure will do. 2) Slap on a famous quotation from a similar character from a different book or movie. Pick something close enough that a non-fan might legitimately confuse them. If you’re using Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, for example, you’ll probably want to grab a quote from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Babylon 5 or Battlestar Galactica. 3) Attribute the quotation to a third character, from yet a third universe. This way, nothing about your image is correct, and you’re trolling fans of all three characters at once. , _cre1l: Visual, _d415a:, _d5fpr: Mikhail Gershovich, _clrrx: 24, _cyevm: <a rel='tag'>VisualAssignments24</a>, _cztg3: <a rel='tag'>VisualAssignments</a>, _d180g: 125

    _cpzh4: Take a short section of one of your favorite songs, and turn the song into a music video using only lyrics.

    Car Lust

    _cpzh4: So I wanted to submit a new visual assignment. All of us, most of us anyways, have a dream car. This is a simple assignment.

    Movie Trailer Mashup

    _cpzh4: Take your favorite movie trailer and mash it up with a different trailer to completely change the meaning of the original trailer.

Good luck!, _cre1l: Mashup, _d415a:, _d5fpr: duncandonuts56, _clrrx: 125, _cyevm: <a rel='tag'>MashupAssignments125</a>, _cztg3: <a rel='tag'>MashupAssignments</a>, _d180g: 630
