This week was just a lot of thinking and brainstorming. I think it was pretty easy. I tried to go back through the assignments I’ve done all semester and figure out what I could do. I wanted to try to avoid video and audio but I still don’t know if I can. These next two weeks are going to be important to try to figure out what to do and come up with a plan.
So I didn’t know what to expect for the final project or how to do it but I read the week 13 weekly assignment and started to think and hopefully it will come out good in the long run. My fear with the final project is I’m not very good at the radio assignments or video assignments. I think I am going to try to avoid those two categories the best I can. I’m not sure if I will be able to do that though.
I plan to somehow tell a love story between a man and woman. I want to use design assignments and visual assignments to tell most of the story. I might use some video or audio but I might look into some of the other categories that we haven’t used yet.
This was was pretty easy I felt like. I really enjoyed the remixes and mashups that we got to do. I think it allowed for a lot of room to be creative and try new things. I realized when I was commenting that the daily creates were supposed to be put on Twitter, I have been completely passing by that so I guess I didn’t do that but I did do the daily creates and posted them on my blog. My favorite thing this week was probably the remixes. I like how we could click that button and it was a whole new twist we could do on our own previous project. This week I watched some of the videos provided to better understand what we were doing. Then I began with the mash ups followed by remixes. I’ve gotten in the schedule of checking the daily creates each day to decided which ones I want to do. I did the commenting last because it usually takes the longest to do. Overall, I am happy with how this week turned out and the work we got to do.
For this daily create on Thursday, I chose these lyrics from this song because throughout most of my life I have always done things for myself and gotten things done for me and only me. I think these lyrics are important to me and could be a theme song because I tend to get the people out of my life that I do not need and who will just end up holding me back in the long run.
This remix was slightly strange to me but I thought it could be interesting so I went for it. The remix for this assignment is to give a “yo mama joke” with the picture. I used my original assignment created for the color change assignment where I had to take the previous picture an change the colors. My yo mama joke for this image is, “Yo mama so lazy that she came in last place in a recent snail marathon.” I chose this one because it felt like it took forever to get up that mountain that day in the picture so I thought it was fitting.
For this assignment, I chose to remix a previously done assignment and remix my bucket list picture. The remix was to make the picture a pinker. To me, pink makes me think of breast cancer awareness month and the focus behind the cause. So for my remix, I added breast cancer awareness ribbons to each picture on my bucket list.
For this assignment, two video game covers needed to be combined into one game. I chose to do Call of Duty and Destiny for the two games. I think this turned out pretty good! It was rather easy to make but I guess that is why it was only worth two and a half stars. I started off my gathering two pictures from each game, then I collaged them into one picture and found a way to write on the picture using an app.
