• Holiday Tutorial

    For this assignment, I started to think about my favorite holidays. I decided that my favorite holidays were Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. You can use any photo editing website or app. I used the Photoshop Fix app to create the assignment. I decided to use a Christmas tree, turkey, and Easter eggs. I found pictures on google and then cutout each picture.   It was very easy to cut out the pictures. I then placed them around the tree. I made the Easter eggs look like presents and ornaments on the tree. I then cut the star out of the tree to be able to add the turkey to the…

  • Superhero Mashup

    For this assignment (4 stars), I decided to put my character, Kate, into a scene. I found a super hero character online and then used the “Photoshop Mix” website to cut her out. I thought that this character was a good representation of what Kate would like. I then found a picture of a raccoon stuck and scaling the side of the building. This was a previous story I worked on for Kate, so I decided to provide a visual image of it. I then placed ‘Kate’ in the image and positioned and adjusted her size to appear like she was flying to him. There was a woman in the…

  • Logo Mashup

    For this assignment (2 stars), I decided to mashup the nike slogan and the under armor logo. These are two big competitors, so I wanted to put them together. I started by finding the Under Armour logo and then cut it out on the “Photoshop Mix” app. I then found the nike “just do it” slogan. I wanted to find it in black to match the logo so it would stand out against the white background. I kept the background white because that is how you often see the nike and under armour logos. I think the two really fit well together and it is odd to see the two…

  • The Grinch in the Hat

    For the assignment (3 stars), I decided to mashup two Dr. Seuss books. I started by thinking about what I children’s books would be fun to put together. I then found found a blue background to imitate the Cat in the Hat background. I then found the grinch and his dog and cut them out. I put the pictures together using the “Photoshop Mix” app on my iPad. I then added the hat and bow tie to the grinch. I could not figure out how to get the hat to fit properly on the grinch’s head which was frustrating. I then found a font that was similar to the type…

  • Holiday Mashup

    For this assignment (4.5 stars), I decided to pick my favorite holidays and make them one. I chose the background to be fireworks to represent the Fourth of July. I really like getting to see the fireworks, and my family usually gets together with friends which is always a lot of fun. I then put a Christmas tree and Santa Claus for Christmas. I love getting to see my family and have time off for Christmas. I decided to have Santa give a bunny a “peep” as a present for Easter. Easter is another one of my favorite holidays because I feel it is always the start of Spring. Peeps are…

  • Week 11 Summary

    This week was a lot better than last week! I feel like I am getting better at making videos and enjoyed working on the assignments. For my first assignment, I decided to incorporate my character, Kate, in the assignment by showing the life of one of the animals she rescued. I used my cat and took pictures of him throughout the day and then compiled it into a video with captions and music. I thought it would be good to show one of Kate’s animals because that is her hob and it also continues the story of one of her rescues. For my next assignment, I created a documentary telling…

  • Daily Creates for the Week

    This week’s daily creates were a lot of fun to think about! My first daily create was for daylight savings time. I decided to find a GIF to represents setting your clock back and really liked this one from The Office. Next, I found this picture of this odd combination of signs and decided it was the perfect choice. Those are two signs that should never be together and was amazed that they were together. My last daily create allowed me to reminisce about memories from a long time ago. Since the holidays are approaching, I thought of the times when I was a kid and how excited I was…

  • The Best Transitions

    For this assignment (4 stars), I found my favorite transitions on iMovie. I haven’t really experimented with the transitions, so when I found this assignment I thought it would be good practice. I have always used transition,s but I kind of just started finding them on iMovie. I decided to use pictures from my trip to England two years ago. I thought they would be good to use and it was also nice to get to make a video of my trip which I haven’t done yet. I looked through all of my photos and then added them to iMovie. I then looked through and played around with the transitions.…

  • The Story of Kate

    For this assignment (5 stars), I decided to create a documentary based on my character, Kate. I started by thinking abut what I wanted to say. I wrote up a story and then found the pictures to go along with it. I started by recording the intro and then the story. I added the pictures and decided how long they should be on the screen for. I then added the final and the image urls. I really liked getting to develop and tell the story of my character. It had been awhile since I thought about her beginning, so it was nice to revisit it. I found pictures that really…

  • A Day in the Life

    For this assignment (3 stars), I decided to show a day in the life of one of my character’s animals. My character, Kate, saves animals for a living and this is one of the animals she saved. He now lives with Kate. I thought this would be a different way to tie my character in and show the perspective of the animals she saves. As you can see in the video, he is extremely lazy! I started the assignment by thinking of things I could get pictures of. I used my cat in the video and just took pictures of things he was doing. The only thing I could not…
