• Week 13 Summary/Update on Final Project

    For my final project (I can’t believe the semester is ending), I have struggled with what to do for this final project. I knew I wanted to have my last project show my character’s ultimate superhero moment. I brainstormed for a few days. I decided on the idea of my character, Kate, going into a burning building to save an animal. I did some research and fire is very prominent in many myths, legends, and folklore, so I knew that would be a good choice to use. I found this article on all of the beliefs of people about fire. I decided to use a mashup, a video, and an…

  • Week 12 Summary

    This was a really fun week of assignments! I really liked all of the assignment options and it was hard to choose which ones to do. For the tutorial, I decided to do a mashup I had just done. I really like the holiday mashup, so I made a new mashup for the tutorial. I then incorporated my character into my assignment by placing her into an image by having her flying to rescue and animal. I then decided to mashup the nike and under armour logos which was fun to see together. My favorite project was the children’s book mashup where I mixed Dr. Seuss’ books the Cat in…

  • 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…

    This has been another crazy week! I feel like all of my classes always have so much due every week! When I saw this was video week, I was super nervous and unsure about how it would go. I was surprised at the ease of video. It took me awhile to find assignments this week because of the number of options, and I also didn’t want ones that were over my skill level. My favorite thing was doing the movie analysis because I got apply things I learned to something real. My favorite assignment was the one where I made a video of where I would want to go. I…

  • Week 7 Summary

    I felt like this week was much smoother than the last two weeks! I really liked forming groups and being able to plan our show. We set up a slack feed and have been communicating on that. We have all been creating our ads and posters, and I think that everyone has done a great job! I created a poster on Adobe Spark for our show and think it ties into the theme very well. For my assignments, I created a radio bumper (4 stars) where I used some mythical background music. For my radio ad (3.5 stars), I created one advertisement for a pet healing amulet. I thought of…

I really like the Noun Project website because it had so many options to explore. The…

  • Week Four Summary

    I felt this week was much more stressful. I started the assignments early in the week, but still felt like there was so much to do! My favorite assignment this week was the photoblitz because I got to look for the items I needed to photograph, and then I tried to take them in a creative manner. I chose to watch “Once upon a Time” and I enjoyed analyzing it and figuring out which techniques they used to emphasize the scenes. For my character assignment, I found and took pictures of what my character would keep in her bag. I tried to be as creative as possible with this and…

  • Week Three Summary

I enjoyed reading the story, “A Study in Emerald” and then reviewing it and seeing the different writing techniques. I decided to create a character that could save animals because I thought it would be a good character to develop and I really liked the idea. For the Haiku (1 star), I read through “Puss in Boots” this was my favorite assignment to write. It allowed me to learn and read through the original tale. I then got to…
