The Final Phase

I can’t believe we are already starting the final unit of ds106. This semester has been a tough one, but it has flown by just like all the other semesters. I chose to work in a small group for the final until. I chose to work with a few of amazing gals who I worked with for our radio show, Tiffany Yowell, Erin Clark, and Megan Rosengrant. I am very excited to work with these creative ladies!

Week Nine Summary

This week we started video which honestly scares me more than audio does. As time goes on in s106, I am jumping more and more outside of my comfort zone. I am enjoying it, but it also scares me.

The Noir Buzz:

After my show aired on ds106 radio on Tuesday night, I was lucky enough to be able to listen to Vixen’s Ventures. I wish that I didn’t have to work so much so I would have been able to tune into ds106 radio a lot more, but unfortunately I had a busy work schedule this week. Luckily I was able to tune in on Tuesday night after my night class! It still amazes me how much talent and creativity my fellow ds106ers have! Keep up the great work y’all!

I was lucky enough to tune into Vixen’s Ventures and I am so glad I did!

Finally…Get A Clue!:

First off I want to thank my awesome group members! These gals are awesome and I am so proud of what we put together without even meeting, well Erin and I met, but other than that we never met as a group. I am SO proud of y’all. I think we did an awesome job! Listening to our show live was really cool! I was overwhelmed by all of the nice comments on twitter by our fellow ds106ers and professors. I was definitely humbled by the professors commentary when Erin went on Skype after our show aired. When I listened to our show for the first time I was like WOW this is awesome, but hearing it live was even better! Such a cool experience!

Assignments:

This week we were assigned to read Roger Ebert’s “How to Read a Movie” as well as watch three videos of our choosing (from a list). I chose to watch The Shining-ZoomsCamera Angle and Techniques, and Examples of Editing Techniques. Click here to check out the rest of my post!

 

For one of my assignments this week I chose to do the assignment, Special Person Montage, that was submitted by Travis Peed.

The assignment is to, ” to decide on who is special to you. It could be a relative, sibling, parent, friend, mentor, celebrity, or anyone. Then you are to make a video of images or video clips of them showing all the different things that they do that makes them special to you. Add music, animation, transition, anything to make the video. In your write-up be sure to explain why the person is special to you.” This assignment is worth 5 points.

I chose to do this assignment because I love honoring the special people in my life and it looked fun. It was a lot of fun! I went and searched through photos and then made them into a video using animato. Once I was done, I uploaded it to vimeo.

I chose my mother because she is not only my mother, but she is my best friend. She means so much to me and I am so thankful to have her. She is an incredible woman who I look up to and learn from each and everyday. My mom is so special to me. She is always there for me as well as so many other people. She puts everyone else before her and it truly makes me smile. She is an amazing, amazing woman.

 

This week I chose to do the assignment, Character Description, that was submitted by Katie Barnes.

The assignment is to,”Create a short about a minute thirty to two minute video describing a character.” This assignment is worth 4 points.

I chose to do this assignment because at this point I am straight up obsessed with my character dossier Shirley Mayfield. I thought that I would enjoy doing this assignment and I did! I had a difficult time with this assignment, but I think I am happy with the overall outcome. I uploaded it to vimeo!

The daily create assignment for 3-19-2105 was to take a photograph with an artistic blur.

Without you I don’t know where I would be…

I put lots of pictures of my mom and I together in here, but I also included some of my mom with other people or by herself which reflects other things that she likes to do such as my parents incredible cake business. Their cakes are phenomenal! My mom is also a nanny and she absolutely loves kids. The beach is my mom’s absolute favorite! She is such a happy and wonderful person and I am so lucky she is my mom.

All the feels…Get A Clue!

First off I want to thank my awesome group members! These gals are awesome and I am so proud of what we put together without even meeting, well Erin and I met, but other than that we never met as a group. I am SO proud of y’all. I think we did an awesome job! Listening to our show live was really cool! I was overwhelmed by all of the nice comments on twitter by our fellow ds106ers and professors. I was definitely humbled by the professors commentary when Erin went on Skype after our show aired. When I listened to our show for the first time I was like WOW this is awesome, but hearing it live was even better! Such a cool experience!

If we had the chance to do anything differently, I would say that meeting in person as a group would have been really cool because I think we are all forming character friendships and we have a lot in common so it would have been cool to see where that would have gone, but we do still talk in our group message, so that’s super cool! These gals are the best!

I thoroughly enjoyed this project and the outcome makes it even better! I learned so much about audacity during this project which has helped me with other projects. Recording myself was weird because I do not like the sound of my voice when it is recorded, but I like that this project made me step outside of my comfort zone once again. I think that the hardest thing about this project was the fact that it was all done online and that was something I had to get used to. I am getting better about technology thanks to this class! haha

I think I would tell future ds106ers to start when it is assigned. That is what our group did and I don’t think that we would have had the same outcome if we didn’t get the ball rollin’ on time.

Lastly I want to say…

I thought that the group did an amazing job! The show was a little bit difficult for me to follow, but by the end I got it! It really was an awesome show with great music and incredible sound effects. Everything (the editing) was so smooth! I also really liked their commercials. Very creative! I am so impressed with the creativity of my fellow ds106ers. Keep doing’ you y’all, keep doing’ you!
