    Keep on walking

    by

    So I made a few more Walk of Life edits:

    That worked nicely, I think. It almost seems appropriate, so I figured I should try a different track:

    That’s probably longer than it needs to be, or maybe it just seems that way. I think it would have been a …

    When looking for inspiration for what to turn into glitch art, I was really hoping to find one single theme or type of thing to use. I was originally thinking of doing landscapes or sunsets, but I almost felt like those were both too generic and not interesting enough. While …

    Week 5 dev log/reflection

    by

    And with that, I close the book on this blog and the class it was made for. It was a lot of fun in some parts, a lot of stress in others, and the whole time I was learning. The assignments made me learn about new techniques and programs, forced …

    Hollowgrove

    by

    Ages into the future is a land inhabited by a wide variety of strange fauna and broken monuments. Tucked in a cave is a family of rock like beings, hundreds of smaller ones working under a monolithic queen. It tells one small rock in particular to follow their dreams, and …

    ds 106: Create A Commercial (5 stars)

    by

    Though it’s not much of an advertisement per say, it tells Rudy just what it is they’re looking at. They will pick one to take along their journey while the rest go with a kindly stranger and his monstrous companion. Without the log left by some unnamed researcher Rudy wouldn’t …

    ds 106: Weird Book Room (4 stars)

    by

    Far in the future of our world is one completely unrecognizable. The people there are not like us, and all they know of us is that we were responsible for why the world has become the way it is now. They read what’s left of our stories of war, of …

    ds 106: Play DJ & Make A Song (again!)(4.5 stars)

    by

    Back at it again with another song! This time I focused much more on making an ambient track rather than a fully fledged song, and I’m pretty happy with the end result. I wanted something that you’d hear as the backing music to a graveyard or haunted woods at night, …

    ds 106: Your story as a game! (5 stars)

    by

    For the visual aspect of this project, I decided to make a mock ups for Hollowgrove. The first end goal of this idea was to make a game, and since then I’ve known that it’s gonna be a long time before anything of the sort actually happens, so in the …

    ds106: Music video (4 stars)

    by

    This assignment was partially inspired by a friend of mine who was showing me how to make a visualizer in a program called After effects. Since I had been having trouble with Adobe Animate on my other assignment, I took him up on his offer and thought it’d be fitting …

    Week 4 dev log

    by

    This week was by far the most stressful thanks to the assignments and regular life happenings. My time management was way off this week and I’m not satisfied with my creative works this week nearly as much as some of my previous works. I spent more time struggling to get …

    Comments week 4

    by

    After browsing some blogs, I found some posts I found to be really well made and slapped some comments on them. First up was Anna’s blog https://www.annahollrah.com/. Her daily creates are very engaging and fun to look through, I had a hard time picking out which week I wanted …

    ds 106: 5 second film (5 stars)

    by

    I’ll preface this assignment by saying that this week was insanely unorganized for me as I started working a second job as well as some family stuff going on, so I’m frustrated to say that this assignment didn’t go as I wanted. I hate to use excuses but my end …

    Look, listen, analyze

    by

    I picked out the Joker scene for this analysis, I remember seeing it a long time ago and thinking abut how I enjoyed it but couldn’t fully recall it. So what better way to rewatch it than to watch and learn from it!

    To start, I muted the clip and …

    Reading a movie reflection

    by

    A lot of the points made by Ebert give so much insight to the thought process behind design choices. The idea of reading a movie is very interesting and its popularity speaks for itself. It’s a great way to both interpret meaning from small moments and to learn about how …

    Videogriping

    by

    Back in the day, friend of ds106 John Johnston made some awesome supercuts using Videogrep:

    I always wanted to try it, but I could never get it to work. I have a hard time finding appropriate directions for doing any kind of command-line work. They all seem to assume that …

    The oddest thing I found in a 7-11 store was a job. I worked the 11-7 shift in the summer when I was in college. What was odd, to me, was the way I got the job.

    A friend came back from a cigarette run and said the manager at …

    Week 3 dev log

    by

    The reflections were definitely the most brain power consuming for me. While they all had great information for audio design, it was hard to not repeat myself in some places. I think I could’ve spent some more time getting more words out and properly explaining myself rather than typing what …

    Moon Graffiti reflection

    by

    The low drone continuously playing in the background, the frantic beeping combined with the rushed conversation all build tension that is released in the sound of a crash. When the narrator begins to take over commentary, the drone and sound effects lower to give priority to said narrator. The silence …

    Radio hour reflection

    by

    The part that really stood out to me in regards to sound design from the Radio hour was the use of sound alongside the lack of sound. Background noise and music can heavily skew the mood of a story. It can provide a background, it can set tones, and depending …

    ds 106: Story time fun time (3.5 stars)

    by

    There are a lot of options in regards to telling a story. I could talk about anything, tell any sort of tale for this. What really inspired me was the idea of continuing off of a gif assignment I had completed last week. The story revolves around a monstrous dog …

    ds 106: Play DJ & Make A Song (4.5 stars)

    by

    I saw this assignment and immediately knew that I wanted to do it. I was inspired by a prompt from a discord server to “Introduce the listener to a space adventure”. I used an online sequencer called Modbox to make this song, which gives me all sorts of fun chiptune …

    ds106: Eat Your Hear Out Beethoven (5 stars)

    by

    I thought it’d be fun to make a cover of a song with a style that’s drastically different from the original. For starters, I’m not that big on Let Her Go, but my partner sure is and I thought it’d be a nice surprise for him and this class. I …
