DS106 Advice

The biggest advice I can give for this class is time management. The class is super fun especially the assignments, however if you don’t manage your time correctly, you won’t be able to enjoy the process behind creating those assignments. Also, enjoy the assignments, even if you have an hour before you have to turn them in and are rushing through a video edit or a photo design.

Final Project

Pt. 1 – For the first part of my final project I interviewed some of my friends. I did this because a lot of my projects throughout the semester included my friends. This is also part of my/our story theme as it pertains to me. Much of my identity and story that I have tried to captivate through this class has been shown through adventures and times with my friends. Read more…

Final Project Update

The three different media’s I will be using for my final are video (YouTube), sounds (Soundcloud), and visual (Instagram). Video – many of my projects throughout the semester have been about my friends. So I am doing a huge mashup of all of my friends time throughout the year. I texted about 35 friends and have received a a ton of videos. I want this video to go well and Read more…

Weekly Summary 12

Mashup week was a fun one. I was able to get a little better at video editing along with design. I did a total of nine and a half stars along with two remixes. I came up with one of the remixes and applied it on one of my older projects. The first mashup project I worked on this week was themed, live vs. studio. I mashed up on of Read more…

LAND OF THE FREE

The picture you are seeing in the background is second lieutenant Caron Nazario. He was a victim of racial profiling by the Windsor P.D. this past December. During what seemed like a regular traffic stop, the officers came out og their car guns drawn demanding Nazario to step out of the car. The video goes on and you can see Nazario scared for his life with both hands outside of Read more…

Remix It: Sports Poster

I did my own remix on one of my older assignments. I just thought it’d be goofy to make the poster I made completely country themed. It came out pretty good. It did take a while, but I enjoyed making it and had some fun as well. I basically just took a bunch of what I thought was country themed clip art and inserted it onto the poster. It wasn’t Read more…

Live vs. Studio: Feeling Whitney

I used a live performance of Post Malone singing Feeling Whitney and the version you hear on the radio. I made tried to make the transition of one version to other smooth and I think I nailed it pretty well. I kept the videos so you could see the live performance too. The transition starts at about 2:30. However, I would start at around 2 minutes in. The second transition Read more…

Remix It: Jump Shrimp

For my first assignments remixed I got Jump Shrimp. It said that I needed to create an oxymoron to an assignment I have already created. So, I chose the funniest one, BUG EYES. The opposite of big goofy looking eyes would be tiny eyes. That exactly what I did in this picture. I took the image into photoshop, clicked on liquify and commenced on making his eyes tiny. This is Read more…

This Doesn’t Belong Here

The Shining and ET don’t really make sense together. So, put them in the same picture. BTW, I am not the best at photoshop, but I think it came out ok, and only ok. This took me a while to make with many YouTube tutorials being part of the process. Anyways, I cut out the, “here’s Johnny,” scene from the Shinning and put it onto the face of ET when Read more…

Weekly Summary 11

I am finally out of isolation. I was moving out last night which is why I am doing my summary a day late. This week you really wanted us to focus on the storytelling aspect of our videos. I’m not gonna lie to you this was kinda tough for me. I am pretty bad at editing and have no sense when it comes storytelling. I try to keep my videos Read more…
