For this assignment I had to focus on a single color and document the impact it has to my day, or in this case my host character’s day. This was worth two stars in the Mashup assignment bank. I used IMoive to make the slideshow of pictures and add audio that resembled the color. The song is Black White, & Blue by Ladyhawk.
I chose a Remix Assignment from the visual assignment bank. After taking a picture of the contents in my bag I needed to make the picture more pink. I edited to colors and chose to give a pink filter to the overall photo. It was worth 2 stars.
“Molly taught us all that everything is prettier in pink, so make that assignment more pink somehow, either literally or metaphorically.
I chose a Design assignment from the bank to do for a remix assignment. The original assignment was to just tell a story through pictures, but the remix was to do it for a Dr. Seuss character or story. It is worth 3 1/2 stars.
“Introduce a Dr Seuss inspired character into an assignment. Or recast the dialogue with Seuss-like language. Add a wocket in your pocket! ‘I’m Yertle the Turtle! Oh, marvelous me! For I am the ruler of all that I see!'”
For this assignment was worth 4 1/2 stars in the Mashup assignment bank. I am a huge Supernatural fan and chose to focus on Sam Winchester. I used a photo from each major season and made a slide show using IMoive. The song I used is Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas because it is used for every season finale and I cant listen to the song without relating it to the show.
This was a very fun assignment to do! This assignment was worth 3 1/2 stars in the Mashup Assignment bank. I had to do a mashup of an emoji with a picture of my friend. I first chose an emoji to use and then found one of my friends that I felt could closely resemble it. I used a photo editor to place the two photos together in a collage and then uploaded it onto flickr.
I used IMovie to record and edit the mini documentary. I used a Queens of the Stone Age song that fit the story and of Sweeney Todd and pictures that tell the story.
I had to use Vine to record a object moving by doing single shots. I messed around with it for a while but had some problems actually making it look like it was moving on its own. Next time I hope to be able to spend more time on it and play with another video editor.
I decided to do this assignment because my host character, Bridget, didn’t have any money after escaping from the asylum and I’m sure she had to rely on some cool recycling tips to save money. This video assignment was worth three stars in the assignment bank. I used IMovie to record and edit the video and then uploaded it to Vimeo.
This assignment required me to spell out a word in sign language. I chose to relate this assignment to my host character and chose a word that she has been associated with for most of her life. My roommate helped me record the video and taught me some sign language for this assignment. I used IMovie to record and edit the video and uploaded it to Vimeo.
The Video Assignment was worth 4 1/2 stars in the assignment bank.
For the Character Description assignment, I chose to focus on Sweeney Todd from the perspective of his daughter Johanna. She was told that her father was a criminal living the rest of his life in Australia. Although she had an opportunity to meet her father, she didn’t know it was him. I focus on how she remembers him from stories and later her experience with him when they finally meet again years later. I used a video editor to combine the scenes in the movie and recorded my voice to overlap the memories.
