    Well, hello! This will be a pretty short post. I simply wanted to let anyone who has read my blog know that I will hopefully be putting out more content in the months to come. I’ve completed the ds106 course, but in looking back through my posts, I’ve felt inspired to do some more ds106-related […]

    Project Update #1

    I’m both excited for and a bit overwhelmed for this entire project. My main element is video, supplemented by audio and visual, as well as web storytelling. Media Forms I’ve decided for sure that I’ll be making a series of videos as my primary element. In addition, I’ll be making a poster or slideshow of […]

    30 seconds of… (Part 1): Christian contemporary music

    This is the first in a series of 3 posts with the same assignment, but the assignment is done differently each time. As per the title, first up is a set of Christian contemporary music. When I saw the assignment “10 second song mashup” in the ds106 assignment bank, I thought, “Huh. That sounds like […]

    Mix ‘Em Up

    This assignment was one of my own creation, because I didn’t see anything quite like this in the ds106 assignment bank. It’s pretty straightforward: mashup two songs that are similar to each other (regardless of if it’s the same artist or if the artists are different). These are the details of the assignment I created, […]

    Project Ideas – Part 2 (aka the essay post to end all essay posts)

    Last week I wrote about some of my ideas for projects going forward and my thoughts about storytelling and the final project in general. In this post, I’ll be considering themes and ideas that others have discussed and expanding on my ideas from the previous post. It’s going to be a long post, so buckle […]

    Dylan Elise Reaction

    Earlier this week, as I was looking through the ds106 video assignments, the assignment “DS106ers React!” caught my eye. I’ve watched plenty of reaction videos before (usually reactions to music videos or music in general). They’re very entertaining, especially when it’s music I love. Because of this, I decided to do my own reaction video. […]

    Transitions, Transitions, Transitions!

    Try saying that three times quickly! Today I’ll be exploring various video transitions in Adobe Premiere Pro. The ds106 Video Assignment “Favorite Transition” has very simple instructions: Use your editing software of choice to show us your favorite video transition!  2.5 stars I decided to use Adobe Premiere Pro, since that’s newest video software that […]

    Project Ideas

    I’m amazed that we’re already more than halfway through the semester. Looking back, we’ve covered so much ground, and I’ve learned so much in terms of digital creation just in these last couple of months. Thinking ahead, we’ve got a few weeks in which we’ll be exploring video, remixes/mashups, and a final project. One idea […]

    Week 9 Daily Creates

    Howdy! Here’s this week’s Daily Creates. This week’s post is a bit of a special edition—the assignment for the Daily Creates is not only to do them, but also to “look at them and find a way to tie them together in a story.” (from Week Nine: and everything’s fine). The prompt sparked my memory […]
