Final Project Progress

For my final project I will be combining 4 mediums of video, writing, audio, and visual to go about completing this assignment. I will be telling a story about my 2 years of college so far through these mediums.

I was thinking about adding videos of my college life together using iMovie, then writing a poem telling a story of my college life, adding pictures together, and then finally speaking about he most important events that happened.

Combining these 4 mediums may be a little challenging but I will begin to go about this assignment and see how well I will do. If I have any problems I am sure someone in the class will be able to help in finding a solution.

I am exciting to go about this assignment and hope it turns out well.

Weekkkkk 11

WOW it’s week 11… how this class has flown by…

This week we got into Remix and Mashups. I learned a lot about the difference between what a Remix and Mashup are actually when referring to creating them.

This week we worked on 12 stars worth of Mashup Assignments… these varied from video clips put together or photos compared to one another. I used iMovie and Collage Maker to complete these assignments. I uploaded the completed assignments to YouTube. We also completed 2 remixes of any assignment on the assignment bank.

Completed two Daily Creates!!!

I had a lot of fun completing these Mashups … I have learned how to work iMovie and now I use it a lot more now. I have also showed a lot of my friends what I have learned and they have been using iMovie a lot more as well.

Can’t wait for next week!!!

Mashup and Remix Assignments

This week we were to complete 12 stars worth of Mashup Assignments and 2 Remix Assignments on the Assignment Bank site.

Mashing Friends and Emojis

For this assignment we were to take a picture of one of our  friends or just a person that is in the moment doing something exactly like an emoji and then mash them together for comparison. For this assignment I had one of my friends pose like one of his most used emoji. I put the two photos next to one another for comparison using Collage Maker. This assignment is worth 4 stars.


A Changing Character 

For this assignment we were to pick any character and follow their progression that they have had … TV or Movie actors/actresses.  We could use video clips to show how the character has changed and grown up over time…. showing the progression of their work. To create this assignment I used iMovie to put the progression and videos of Jennifer Aniston’s career together. I went on Youtube and used a mp4 converter to get the clips onto iMovie. This clip is too long to post onto my blog, but can be viewed on my YouTube page. I will attach the link to the bottom of this post. This assignment is worth 5 stars.
Actor Transformation

For this assignment we were to find a famous person and use clips to show a metamorphous…. a change in their career… on clip at the beginning of their career and one clip at the most recent image. I used iMovie to create this assignment… I also converted the two clips from YouTube using a mp4 converter tool. I used Miley Cyrus’ career for this assignment because I believe her career has changed so much from the beginning till now. This assignment is worth 3 stars.


“Stache it” 

For this remix card.. there was a urban dictionary definiton of a mustache and says to add a mustache to something that is something you care a lot about… I care a lot about dogs and this image looked perfect for this Remix.



For this remix card we were to use the assignment itself… making a collage of your favorite animal… and turn it into a advertisement for ds106 radio. I used Collage Maker for this assignment and added dogs as my favorite animal and a image of the ds106 radio station poster in a collage.





I am a huge movie fan and the fact we were able to do 2 weeks worth of video based assignments was awesome…. and a lot of fun for me to complete!!

This week our main focus was more on the storytelling aspect of video making… not all the techy stuff…. We complete another week of 12 stars worth of video assignments from the ds106 assignment bank. I had a lot of fun creating these movies and have posted them to my youtube account.. which I will post the link to below….

Daily Creates

This week we created and posted 3 Daily Creates.. I always have fun completing these and this week they were just as fun.

making movies…

This week we were to do 12 stars worth of video assignments from the ds106 assignment bank… focusing on not the technical part of making movies but more of the storytelling aspect behind what the videos are conveying.

Signing words

This assignment was worth 4 stars and asked to take a video of myself or someone else and finger spell a word using sign language. The word has to be more than 5 letters so viewers are more able to guess what the word is…. For this assignment I used iMovie to create this video. My friend was around and he knows sign language so I asked him to do sign language for me. The word that he spells is “kneading” we chose this word because he is actually kneading dough during the video…. I used the recording tool on  iMovie to create the recording of him doing sign language. I added music from my iTunes to the background and added a beginning and ending title as well.

College Snapshot

This assignment was worth 4 stars as well… and we were to add photos from the most memorable from the past years in college. The video needed to be longer than 2 minutes and the photos should tell a story of the past years in college. For this assignment I used iMovie to create my life in the past 2 years of being in college. The photos are placed in chronicle order, in a sense telling a story of how my life has been these past 2 years. I added a beginning and end title as well as added one of my favorite songs that reminds me of my college memories in the background. I had a lot of fun creating this assignment because it allowed me to look back on some great memories that I will never forget with some of my favorite people.

Special Person Montage 

For my final assignment we were to put together a video montage of someone of great importance in our life. Adding pictures that show/describe all the ways they are important to us. My best friend Lindsey is someone who means the world to me… she has always been there for me on a consistent basis and I wouldn’t know what I would do without such a wonderful person in my life. I used iMovie to create this assignment, adding photos of my favorite moments shared with Lindsey…. I added “Heres to never growing up” as the background music because it is my favorite song and always reminds me of the fun times Lindsey and I have. This assignment is worth 5 stars..(:
