    Let’s Build A Park;


    Leslie Knope is a bold Pawnee citizen. Her dedication to the town is admirable and, sometimes, downright scary. A plan has come to her mind, and once she has a plan there is no stopping her until it is done. “A new park to bring unity to the community,” she …

    Media for the final;


    Here is a summary of the media I did for my final assignment. Most of these editors I have used many times and have described in prior assignments, so I will only give a brief overview of what I did for the media. Please see examples cited for a description …

    If you’re looking for how to speed up a video just enough, look no further! I am the expert at chipmunk style. It’s simple and quick, and quite funny when it’s done right!
    To show you how, I will use a video I used for my own assignment. I used …

    Weeks 13-14;


    These two weeks were interesting to say the least. I figured I’d go ahead and get this done because one, I have a crap-ton of other work to do and two, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. So let’s dive in.

    Mashup’s are pretty hilarious. I have watched a fair share, most recently …

    Baymax and Joy;


    Disney makes some amazing movies. Their most recent ones, Big Hero 6 and Inside Out, have stolen my heart. The psychology major in me appreciates Inside Out’s story line, and the child in me loves Baymax from Big Hero 6. What better combination than these two for the Movie Mashup

    Weeks 11 & 12;


    Really thankful we had two weeks for this.


    Okay. So, for the required assignment, I did the split-screen singing. I love the song, I love singing, I figured why not go for it. The hardest part was getting the videos together really (see the post for details).

    For …

    Can you feel the love tonight;


    Owl City did an amazing cover of this wonderful song, and he only did the chorus. Perfect for the Lip-Sync Along (3.5 Stars).



    To do this, I played the song on my iPhone while I recorded video on WMM. I added in the music, using the …

    Coffee, a daily need;


    “Show DS106 what you did today!” Vine It (3 Stars)


    Well, DS106, as I do every day, I drank coffee. Literally no further explanation is needed.


    To make this, I opened vine, pressed and held the screen to capture the front video, flipped the video to …

    For the Moving Object (4 stars) assignment, I decided to vine my laptop being shut.


    To make a vine, first I had to download Vine from the App Store. Then, I had to go through the “how to” steps before I could actually record a video. To …

    Clocks (By Coldplay; A Split Screen Adventure)


    Oh boy. Okay. This has been the worst one yet.


    So I did the video part easy peasy. I set up in my room and just sang.(I decided I’d sing this song when I was driving home the other day and was singing the harmony haha).


    Then I …

    Week 10, a review;


    If I’m honest, I had way more work in my other classes that took prescience this week. (Senior Sem, anyone?)


    Nevertheless, here’s my assignments. I think video is extremely important, and I’m glad this section came after audio (knowing inflection and pauses, etc, made understanding the video aspects easier.)…

    About me; a slideshow.


    This was super easy.


    Basically, I picked pictures, added them to WMM, typed up a script, and recorded it over the pictures. I saved it as an Mp4 and there we go!

    Analyze movies, you will;


    Of course I chose the scene from Star Wars.

    1: Camera Work.

    interesting angle to start with, with the trees and swamp around cuts back and forth at the appropriate times (there are people talking to each other, need to get facial expressions to different things happening, etc.) shows enough…

    Week 9, a review;


    Not having my assignments till Tuesday made it difficult to get all my work done, as I do most of the work either Sunday or Monday (or at least start it then).

    Nevertheless, I got it all done.

    First, my Daily Creates, with a story that pieces them all …

    Daily Creates in Motion;


    Storyline motion that is. Click through the pictures to read the story!

    (side note: my pictures had to be reposted into Flickr since I simply replied with photos on Twitter for the Daily Creates. Original tweets found here: one, two, three, four)

    It's not always perfect …

    Reviews on the air;


    Review of the Grumpy Desperado’s:

    Intro: I loved the background music! it could be a little softer though, it got hard to hear the spoken word when the sung words came in.

    First story: Again, the music could be softer. But fitting for the story! I loved the background of …

    Pocket Mac, now available;


    Isn’t an iPhone basically a pocket computer? It can do everything a computer can: type emails, browse facebook, make word documents…Why not fix up the web page to reflect this? (and change some of the jumble-y mess Apple puts in to describe it. Only basic necessities for descriptions here)

    It’s not always perfect cappuccinos;


    My happy place would definitely be at Blackstone. When I’m not working, I’m here doing homework and catching up with friends. I love the atmosphere, I love the people, and I love the coffee.

    In fact, I’m sitting in the backroom right now working on this assignment, waiting for 3pm …

    I Think Dreamy Things as I’m Waving Goodbye;


    I would love a vacation. Consequently, I’ve planned a life time of vacations on pinterest. This made this assignment quite easy.


    So, my wanderlust board. I’ve been adding to this board for years. I would love to travel some day and explore the “hidden coves” of the world. So, …
