For this week progress, I went through some of my old assignment and I put then together i n a video. I still need to do the narrating and put some of the dates together. Also, I need to create a few more articles as I created for diary entries, and the fake newspaper article. I need to start working on in the narration and maybe adding a few more picture of the countries I choose. I think it will be a fine project at the end. I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving….
The final project, which I do not remember it was on the syllabus but that was so long ago that I do not remember. My plan for my final project, is to make the compilation of things photos, letters, video, voice, and other of things that narrates the story of my host characters. I think it will be like a biography of the host character. There are some assignments that I can integrate into the video and some that I will have to create. For this week, I created two pages of a ‘diary’ that I came across. I have to sit and think of a way that I am going to handle it but I at least have a goal. 🙂
I do not want to call the bad luck or to say that we are having a very light load and them get hit with a lot of work because it is almost the end of the semester and it is getting crazier. So please if you are the professor in charge of giving us homework just skip down and do not read the above part. Thank you…
This week was mainly dedicated to mashup and remix. We have to do 10 stars in mashup and 2 remix. For the mashup, I did The lord of the force where I combine The Lord of the Ring with Star Wars in one movie poster. Another mashup is two mix to favorite websites or brand I mix the logo of Apple with the color of Windows. Another mashup I did was to create a video of our favorite actor, the only character that I can think that I like is Jacob from Twilight Saga where I mixed video of his transformation with some of his pictures. The last mashup I did to complete stars is to get a very important or ionic album cover and modified in a way that it looks different. For this reason, I took the album cover of the Thriller by Michael Jackson and I added a flowers bouquet that was a present to my host character. The two remix I did this week is Vine Remix where I took small videos using Vine during the day to illustrate a typical day at home. The last remix was Old Place in Pink, I did is assignment before were my host character visited the Nijoh Palace but in this case I have to make it pink.
We were prompted to do three daily create and they are linked below.
This daily create was a little bit confusing, I think it is always confusing when it comes to poetry because it is difficult to me to create something in a language that is not my native language. However, I tried my best and I hope that people like it.
This daily create we had to decorate or modify a boring picture or scenery and make it interesting. I was doing synthesis that week for my chemistry class. For this reason, I took a picture of the synthesis setting and I added flowers, and some grass to make it more appealing.
This daily create asked to create another poem to explain our purpose of life.I do not know if I have a big purpose in life, but I know what I am doing now, I may not to the exact end but I know that I am in the right path or at least it looks like it. I have dreams they may not be of great luxury or fame but they are simple wishes that will compliment my life.
This assignment is worth 2 stars and it asked to change a music album cover. For this reason I choose the album cover for Thriller by Michael Jackson and I added a flower bouquet. I did it in paint, nothing too fancy it was simple and easy to add a bouquet of flowers to a very ionic album cover.
This Mashup assignment is worth 3.5 stars and we are asked to put two similar movies into one poster. I used the Lord of the Ring poster and incorporate Star Wars into the poster by changing Ring for Force and adding some of the Star Wars character into the poster as well as some light sabers. I am a huge fans of Star Wars so I am really excited about the new movie coming up. I have my tickets and I hope not to be disappointed. Back to the poster…. I used Photoshop to do some of the change and my cousin give me some ideas of how to do it.
Two of my favorite thing are IOS and Windows; it may sound weird but I like both operatting systems and I can go in between them to do difference thing in both of them. What I decide to do for this assignment is to get the apple logo and apply the Windows colors, so I can create a new logo of both of them combine. It was pretty easy to apply the color to the apple and them apply the background color that resemble the background screen of a PC desktop.
For this remix we needed to create an old place where we would like to live and make it pink. I did this assignment of the Nijoh Castle a couple of weeks ago. I decided to take the same palace and make it pink by adding color in Paint program. I did not wanted to make it too pink because is look bad in pink and it is not my favorite color.
This assignment is worth 3 stars and it asked me to make different videos in vine and put them all together in one video clip. I use my cellphone to do the vine videos and then I went online to get the video download to my computer and them upload them to YouTube. I used the vine of me doing my DS106 homework, then making coffee, cleaning the sink that it always appears full, and the GPS that was going crazy.
I want first of all give credit to the creator of Twilight saga (movie) because I do not own the clip that I am using.
This assignment which is worth 3 stars asked us to create a video clip of our favorite character. I like Jacob, is the only character that I can like, I am sorry Edwards fans I do not like him one bit, and I am not a super fan of the Jacob either but he wins. So for this assignment I use iMovie and I used one clip that I found in YouTube and some photos that I download from google, and using iMovie I added some music in the photo so that the transition between video clip and photo is not silence void.
This week again it was a mess, but it is almost over a few more weeks to go and then break and to eat my mother home cooking for a couples of days. This week was dedicated to video assignments which means a lot of video were created which was pretty good and easy. I thought it will be worst but it was quite simple and easy to do. Some of the assignment I did were: Lip-sync singing I was kind of shy at the beginning but then I said to myself have fun and I did. The next assignment was Origami where I teach how to do a ghost origami and it added to the video assignments. I also added in the video section a Tutorial of how to use a screen sharing/ broadcasting screen for the rest of my fellow student to used too. Then I choose the Pantry scene of the Shinning to complete the assignment of analyzing the scene. Finally, I used for the first time Vine, at the beginning was kind of confusing but I got used to it and completed the assignment of something falling I choose a nail polish because it was nearby. We also were prompted to create a documentary which was worth 0 stars 🙁 but I introduced my host character and I think people will get to know her better, she can be a little weird sometimes but she is nice and smart person.
Finally because I forgot to do my weekly showcase, I redeem myself and I made my showcase for this week which was pretty hard because there is a lot of good material on the blogs.
