    4 Icons and a Movie tutorial


    I decided to make this into a tutorial for fellow ds106 classmates because I was unsure how to make up icons for any movies and thought it would be helpful to show students how to do that. I decided to use screencast and record my screen which seemed like the …

    Week 11 Summary


    This week has been hard, I am not as into the deep editing of videos and the small details that editing videos has to have. I found this week different because it was more about the small video details versus last week where it felt more like whole picture editing. …

    Final Project Ideas


    I am really liking the idea of rewriting the dialogue from an 80’s movie and make it accurate to 2019. This is kind of like when Footloose was remade from the 80’s to 2011 and things were more modern but kept the same story line.

    My Weekend


    This video assignment has been different from the past. This was a video with no sound from it and music just as background noise and the video was built on index cards in the camera. It was supposed to make a story beginning middle and end with no words and …

    Social Media Life


    This assignment was fun to make. I had to pull things from different social media platforms to create a movie narrative of my life for 4 stars. I enjoyed this project because while making movies from pictures and words is time consuming I get satisfaction out of it. I was …

    For this assignment I needed to analyze a video scene from a movie focusing on how the director made emotion and edited the video. We had to include both readings for this week and discuss it over the video.

    Commercial Redo for the 80’s


    I took a commercial I created for the 80’s theme and redid it while adding some background music to keep the listeners attention. I don’t think I had the time in the audio week to put as much effort into the projects as I wanted or thought it needed. This …

    Daily Create Story


    This assignment is about making a story with daily creates and connecting them together. This took a lot more thought than I originally anticipated. I still thought it was fun just really odd for a different thought process.

    I am combining some posts from last week along with the 3 …
