    Apple Blossoms


    May 6, 2021. These believe it or not were in the parking lot at a Tim Hortons. Nice day, a little cool, but good enough for a short walk. Did a disastrous video in the morning, then spent the afternoon figuring out what went wrong in the morning. Yes, I’ll…

    DS106 Advice


    The biggest advice I can give for this class is time management. The class is super fun especially the assignments, however if you don’t manage your time correctly, you won’t be able to enjoy the process behind creating those assignments. Also, enjoy the assignments, even if you have an hour …

    Crabapple Blossoms


    May 5, 2021. The crabapple tree in the back yard has appeared to have regained its health and looks like it will give us a full tree of blossoms this year. If the photo appears a bit dark it’s because it was taken outdoors on another cold, wet and grey…

    Final month of school. Here we are. Its been a long trek to get here, but it has all been worth it. This week was better than last hands down. I got to think more about a final project and tweak somethings I plan on doing and I go to …

    Still Thinking Ahead…


    Looking Ahead

    Above is my first post about my project idea for the final project. I talked about making a presentation or vide about finding ones self and our desires of the person we want to become and relating everything to that story. I think something I will do differently …

    Weekly Summary (3/26 – 4/2)


    This week was a busy one. I have been struggling a lot with assignments and my work load in college, but also everything else. This class specifically was fun because I do enjoy making video assignments, but I just become such a stickler and a perfectionist with it all because …

    My Video Mission


    This week is the week I will show you my first video that I took actual time to edit and complete. This video was made to be like a kickstarter for my channel. I remember recording it and just winging it and improvising everything I said. I also remember when …

    Video Story


    I do not have enough to plan out and create something quickly, but I do have something I am a little scared to post about. A few years ago, I strived to become a full-time YouTuber because I thought it was the best job ever, making money by posting videos …

  9. Downes



    May 3, 2021. It was chilly and rainy all day but the tulips in the front yard added a nice splash of colour to the outdoors. I meanwhile spent the day chasing down a stupid Javascript problem that came out of nowhere to afflict my web project. It’s like that…

    Audio (Week 5 Summary)

    It’s Audio Week!

    Radio Bumper

    This bumper was created using Audacity. I recorded my voice and then found a free source music track to place behind the talking. I used the Envelope Tool on Audacity to quiet the background music behind the speaking part, and used fade in and fade …

    Reading Movies (Week 10 Summary)

    It’s Video Week!

    Video Essay

    This assignment tasked us to take a scene from a movie and analyze it stylistically, not by the plot. Our readings this week posed questions about why movie/video makers choose to shoot scenes the way they do. What effects do these choices create? What elements …

    White Trillium


    May 2, 2021. This is a white trillium, Ontario’s floral emblem, blossoming alongside the western train in Ottawa’s Greenbelt. This is the first time we’ve walked the trail. I have dozens of beautiful photos from the 13 km route from the Fallowfield rail station to the Rideau River and back…

    Looking Back (Week 9 Summary)


    This week, we were tasked with taking two of our old assignments and re-doing or remixing them in a new way. Below, you will see the results of that reflection and reinvention.

    Revisited Work #1: Now Vogue

    This visual assignment was to take a picture and turn it into a …

  14. Downes



    May 1, 2021. I was just riding by on a small dirt road and the white cow to the left came trotting up to greet me, followed by the other two, so I had to stop and say hi. It was cold and windy today but I put 40 km…

    More Snow


    April 30, 2021. If you look closely you can see large white flakes of snow. It didn’t stay but that’s an indication of how awful the weather was. I finished off what was a pretty hard week by recording a video and learning about the HTML canvas element.
  16. @effyuwawa



    This has to be one of the most difficult yet rewarding videos I’ve edited this semester. I asked my siblings to send me a video for our mom for Mother’s Day and I got 2. Lol. But my friends came through and helped me out. I feel that this video …

    Weekly Summary: Week 14


    Byte Me: Premiere

    This week was focused on completing my final project: Byte Me. In the premiere post I touch on how it doesn’t look like the trailers I mirrored my project idea off of. Even though I may feel this way, I am surprised still at how well it …

    Weekly Summary 14


    In reflecting on this final project, I am happy to say that I was very pleased with how everything came together and flowed in one story together in the end. In my final project I combined 4 different forms of media. Audio, video, writing, and images. All of these media …

    Final Project


    Pt. 1 – For the first part of my final project I interviewed some of my friends. I did this because a lot of my projects throughout the semester included my friends. This is also part of my/our story theme as it pertains to me. Much of my identity and …

    Week 14 Summary


    LAST DAY OF THIS CLASS!!! This class challenged me in ways that I was not prepared for. For instance, the amount of work that was required to complete this class blew me away. Some of the assignments were interesting and challenged me in a good way, but others I felt …
