This week’s video’s assignments were a blast. I first want to mention my ds106 commercial that I made for one of my assignment banks. I had fun editing and making it look good. I have realized in the past two weeks that one of my strengths or one thing I really enjoy doing is editing. My second assignment bank was about taking a movie and showing the importing aspects of that movie(basically all the import events). This one took a long time but it had been something that we have been doing for a while so i knew how to go about it. My last assignment bank was about taking a clip, cutting out the voices and adding music that fit the atmosphere of that clip(fun stuff). The first daily create that I did was about making my very own superhero. I am not a very big fantasy person but I do like designing and editing so this was a fun little assignment that I enjoyed. Second daily create was about a GIF of a ( person/animal) walking. My last daily create was making a monstrosus pumpkin spice flavor. This was interest because I absolutely hate pumpkin spice so It was easy to make a pumpkin spice anything monstrous. I enjoyed this week assignments! Have you entered any of the participating grades on canvas? Mine are not graded(I asked because you always have the weekly assignments graded early so I just wanted to make sure you are getting my participating points too) if you haven’t gotten to them yet, NO rush!
This assignment that I chose to do was about creating a commercial about ds106 for future students. One of the reasons why I chose to do this assignment is because when I am getting ready to register for a class every semester, I make sure I go around asking people for advice about how the class is going to be. It always makes me feel better when I hear someone say “ooh that was an enjoyable class” or “I wouldn’t mind taking that class over again”. I made this video to spread the word that ds106 is a very useful and enjoyable class to take. There is so much I have learned over the course of two months and there wasn’t anything I wouldn’t want to do again. This class is the best!
Today’s daily create asked us to make a pumpkin spice monstrosity. I came up pumpkin spice milk. Honestly I don’t really know how this will taste but I hate pumpkin spice so anything with pumpkin is yuckie. I used the app pain to add the pumpkin spiced label on the milk. It was pretty easy and I believe anybody could do it. I am glad halloween season is over so I don’t hear anymore of pumpkin spice flavors.
This assignment I had to do was about editing a movie to show all the important aspects of that movie. I really enjoyed doing this assignment. I first started out by going on youtube to find any movies that recently came out with a lot fame. I couldn’t really find anything that interested me, when I did find something, it ended up being a trailer. I then started searching out youtube movies that had lots of viewers. I finally came across a movie called Hush. Hush is about this deaf women who is held hostage by a man who wanted to kill her. The lady that was held hostage outsmarted the guy that was keeping her hostage and finally found the nerve to fight and kill him.
I used Windows Movie maker to edit this hour and half movie(it was a pain). I was about to sum everything up and cut it down to a 1minute and a half. I then uploaded it to vimeo so I would be able to embed it in this post. Hope everyone enjoys it!
Today’s daily create was about a walking GIF(our choices were either a man, women, or an animal). I picked this walking animal because it was darn cute, it also draws my mine to a little imagination because most animals can’t walk on just two legs. I love how the plain background draws a lot of focus on just the animal and its features(it has some really interesting features like the horns on its head).
For this video assignment that I had to do, I had to get a movie clip and then find music that goes well with it’s environment. I first started out by looking for a clip that I enjoyed watching. I found a clip from the movie Moana. This clip seemed to be the part when Maui saug to the beautiful Moana. I enjoyed watching this scene a lot. After finding the clip, I went in search for an upbeat song that could go well with Maui’s dancing moves. I had a hard time doing this but then one of my favorite songs came to mind. The song I decided to pick is called “Cheerleader” by Felix Jaehn. In the cheerleader’s music video, there is a guy that claims he has found a cheerleader, someone who is always going to be there for him, and I thought the scene I pick from Moana also had the same story line. I decided to use Window’s Live Movie Maker to edit the scene. I took the voices out and replaced it with music.
Today’s daily create was about making our own superheros. I called mine SuperCan because she can do any/everything in the world! There is no task that is too big for her. I made her very feminine because often times when people look at super heros, they think of big masculine guys. Females can be heros and still look girly. Growing up, I never had a favorite superhero but if SuperCan really really existed, she would be my favorite.
