Shawshank Redemption Video Essay

Shawshank Redemption Video Essay

  For my video essay I did the closing scene of Shawshank redemption, one of my favorite movies. This assignment really put my skills to the test and I am still not super happy with it. To create this I opened the video in youtube and muted it. I then went through and recorded myself in a few segments on audacity as I played the video through. Once I had my segments, I edited all of my “ums” out and…

Sign Language

Sign Language

My last assignment for the week was to sign a word so that someone out there can guess what I am saying! I will give you a hint that it pertains to our class. To make this I opened photobooth on my mac and then recorded myself signing the word. Exported that to Imovie and added some music. Wala   http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/signing-words/

The Galapagos Islands

The second assignment I chose to do was Vacation time where I put together a video of pictures and video from a recent vacation.┬áThis summer I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Ecuador.

Web Page Remix

Web Page Remix

For my web page remix using the X-ray goggles I created a funny job advertisement for myself. Earlier in the week I started creating a page on an amazon posting but it became really complicated really fast. After struggling for about an hour I gave up and walked away. Today I started over with a craigslist ad and that worked out much better than I anticipated. To begin I went onto craigslist.org and clicked on motorcycles. From there I found…

Minuscule Stories Radio Show Reflections

Minuscule Stories Radio Show Reflections

Unfortunately I was not able to catch a whole lot of the radio shows when they were on the radio. But I did go back and listen through a few. I really liked the Minuscule Stories show. I felt as if they did an excellent job with the sound effects, commercials, etc. I thought the “on to the next story” was pretty funny as well. Making use of twitter and the internet to formulate their ideas and stories was also…
