Final Project Brainstorm

Final Project Brainstorm

Since I am not a super creative person, I am thinking that I may just do my life story. I have done several assignments in the past about things I have done and places I have gone but I have not gotten into any of my childhood or experiences. I could incorporate the following media sources: Audio: Storytelling with the use of effects to magnify the story Video: Multitude of videos from life/ with or without narration Photos: Childhood till…

The third and final assignment I did for the week was mashing emojis and friends! Regularly you would take an emoji and have a friend mimic that emoji, but with the remix I am supposed to introduce Dr. Seu ss into the assignment. So my idea was to take the iconic grinch from Dr. Seuss and have my girlfriend stand like him (her favorite xmas movie) to create a new emoji and a mimic to go along with it! Here…

This assignment took me back to the Graphic Design week where I got a crash course in GIMP. If you are not familiar with GIMP, it is an open source software. The link to the download is available on our DS106 website. When I first downloaded it, it was all in english… Then when I opened it for this assignment it was all in spanish but luckily I can figure it out with the symbols and my limited spanish. So…

This doesn’t belong here, with a remix

This doesn’t belong here, with a remix

The second assignment I did for the week was remixing an image with another image inserted in there. Well the original assignment called for the second object to be as small and discrete as possible. Well in the Remix that it came up with, it says do the complete opposite! So to do that I make the second object the main focus of the mashup! The original assignment can be found here: http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/this-doesnt-belong-here/ The assignment with my remix: To complete…

Two Movies, One Line

The first assignment that I did for the week was to mashup two movie lines into one. The assignment can be found here: Two Movies, One Line When I started this assignment, I could not think of two one liners that could be mashed together successfully. Well thanks to the internet, and a search of “best one liners,” I came up with the famous line from Taken and Lord of the Rings.¬†Once I had the lines I wanted, I searched…

The second daily create I did this week was all about pumpkin! I thought of every common food that we eat and there were recipes for almost everything!
