• Week 10 Summary

    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…

  • Avengers Analysis

    For my film analysis, I decided to use the movie Avengers 2. I have always liked the Marvel movies and figured they have so many characters and action scenes that it would be a good movie to look for the features. After I watched the videos on features in film, I searched for clips on youtube. I found two clips that I noticed had the features Ebert and Zhou discussed. I found the 4K Video Downloader information and dowloaded the youtube videos using it. I then added the clips to iMovie and removed the audio. I then directly recorded my voice over the scenes and added in my intro. I…

  • Puppies!

    I saw this assignment (2 stars) and knew I had to do it! I do not have a dog but have always wanted one. I started by googling pictures of cute dogs and picked my favorites which was so hard. I chose my favorites and then added them to iMovie. I wanted to find a background noise, so I looked on freesound.org and found the acoustic guitar music. I thought it would make a nice background sound and being calming while looking at the puppies. I really like how it turned out and think that it can make anyone happy!   Until next time, Emily

  • Relax

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I created a video of ocean waves. I started by finding the ocean waves on freesound.org. I also found a person saying relax that I thought would tie into the assignment. I used audacity to add the two audios and then exported them and added them to iMovie. I found two sunset pictures of the ocean and decided to alternate the two with the audio. I downloaded the movie and uploaded it to youtube. I really enjoyed this project. Sometimes when I am stressed I will listen to relaxing music and now I can use my own. Until next time, Emily

  • A Few of My Favorite Assignments

    For this assignment (3.5 stars), I put together a video of my favorite assignments I have created so far. I went through all of my old posts and tweets and picked my favorites. I decided to overlay my picture assignments with my audio assignments. I liked the idea of this because it allowed for the audio to have visual. I really liked getting to look through all of my old work and seeing how much I have done in this class! I downloaded all me media from my blog and took screenshots of my tweets. I used iMovie to create the video and put everything together. I then uploaded it…

  • Where I Want to Go

    For this assignment (4 stars), I created a video of two cities in Spain I want to visit, Barcelona and Spain. I have always wanted to visit Spain and these pictures make me want to even more! I googled pictures for both the cities and then uploaded them to iMovie. I then found music on freesound.org to play with the pictures. I found the two intro pictures to introduce each city and separate the pictures of each. I then uploaded the video to youtube. I loved getting to explore the cities through google images and hope to one day visit the cities. This was one of my first times using…

  • Daily Create Story

    I love all of the British Castles! This one is Warwick Castle! I love castles that are near water and have beautiful architecture! #ds106 #tdc2475 pic.twitter.com/F5Q1qBbu78 — eahumw (@EmilyHutchins8) October 22, 2018 There once a castle far, far away. In this castle lived a very evil cat named P.J. Definitely my cat's reindeer antlers. He was not pleased. #ds106 #tdc2479 pic.twitter.com/xLspa0dff7 — eahumw (@EmilyHutchins8) October 26, 2018 This cat wore a crown with antlers on it. He used his crown to show his immense power and control over the land. He controlled all the land until one day he met a nice monster named CiCi. Love this daily create! This…

  • My Dream Schedule

    For the Story Within a Story assignment, I decided to make my dream class schedule. I downloaded Google X-Ray and then searched for various ideas and then realized canvas would be fun to try. It is an easy website and did not have too many features. I thought about classes that I would love to take and chose a few of them. I then edited the classes and put my new classes in. I chose intro to cooking, animal lovers, intro to travel, and nap taking. I also had to change all of my assignments to represent my new classes. I definitely wish I could take these classes instead of…
