Week 14-Final Week!

This week was a ton of work! I am so happy I finished it a day early!! I had the idea of creating this finale part of Olivia’s story. I thought it would be interesting if you look at my blog as a whole and see the character change. Here is me introducing my idea in the last weekly summary.

Week 13/Progress of Final Project

I then began working on it this past Monday. I’ve been doing little each day to ensure that it is done with the best of my ability.

The one thing I would like to talk about is the web design. One of the web edited assignments I did are screenshots. That was because I tried it again and, like last time, it did not Publish.

I finally figured out what the problem was. I was on Safari, but when I switched to google chrome, it was able to publish! So the other 2 assignments worked out!! And I was able to publish them!!

Here is the final assignment!

Final Project!

This class was a lot of work, but I learned a lot!! Good luck with Finals this semester! And thank you Professor Bond!!

Final Project!

This Is the final Project. I included: Video design, Web design, and an audio recording.

The video design includes images of who Olivia is vs. who people think she is.

The next thing I did was the web editor and design with the google X-ray goggles. I know it says on the embedded link that it is the original website, but once you click on it it is the fixed one.

Bottle Up The Crazy

It’s very new and I’m still getting used to the idea of personal blogging again, but I’d like to express to you the meaning this blog’ll have on me. People don’t seem to understand me. They just asume I am mean and critcal and popular. They’ve got it all wrong.

The final piece is the audio file. This one I did like it is another segment of the radio show. Take a look at the end of this myth!

Week 13/Progress of Final Project

Well, I can’t believe we only have one more week! This has been a very helpful class in just working with the computer.

But anyways, let’s get to the real subject. This final project, I have been thinking and planning for all week. I do not have any completed work, because I am trying to make this the best work it can be.

This assignment is to utilize my character and the theme of myth/legend into a master project. This project will be across 3 different parts of media that we have both learned and discussed in this class.

I will provide a very detailed outline in what I am planning to do for each individual story. While showing my how my character has evolved throughout the semester. Here you go!

My character Olivia started out as a character whom is severely misunderstood. She is this cruel and calculated popular girl in school, but then at home she is pushed beyond her limits in ways people would not want to be pushed. This can be difficult to illustrate, but by the end of this project you all will see how much Olivia has changed. I want the story to be Olivia is taken into court for the issue that happened which was discussed in the radio show. I’ll link that here:

 

Character: Olivia-popular girl at school who is pushed by her closest family members daily.

Myth/Legend: The rumors and chats about who Olivia really is is a myth. She has become this legendary girl in her hometown, with so many stories about who she is.

3 Forms of Media: Visual, Web, Audio

How will these forms be used? 

  • Visual-This will be a series of pictures. These pictures will tell part of the story of Olivia’s life. It all express what the plaintiff think she is like, and what the defendant think she is really like. It will confirm or deny the “myths” that carry along with her.

*** I will use a couple of resources to complete this part of my project. This one will be done in 2 steps. The first step will to gone onto google and find both short clips and pictures that I believe to resemble Olivia (both socially and alone). Then I will go onto IMovie on my MacBook and begin creating a video of all of the pictures and clips. Of Course, this will be a 2-part video with first the myths, then the truths. I’ll add some music, to make the piece go together, and then that’ll be part one!

  • Web- I will do an Amazon ad like what we did earlier in the semester (yes I know the last one didn’t work, but I’m trying for it again!). I want this ad to be very honest. I want to make it like an ad for what Olivia really wants to “sell” to people vs. what she does “sell”. Basically I want to make it ad or the person that Olivia presents vs. what she really wants to show.

*** This will be a picture of what both sides “show” to the judge. I will use a couple things for this as well. The first thing is of course google to get pictures and ideas. The second thing will be what we used for the web week. I will use the Mozilla X-Ray Goggles Tool .

  • Audio- I want to create another interview type place, but make it Olivia explaining who she is as a person and why she did the things she did. This will essentially be her full evolution so that the class is basically her ark and the end of my semester is the end of this part of her story.

** This will be the final plea speech of Olivia. With this, I will utilize the recording app on my Apple iPhone. I will then Air Drop it to my computer and upload it into Audacity . Which I have used that for multiple assignments. I will upload other sounds into it to enhance the audio using Free Sound .

That’s all for this week! I will start working on the final project this weekend, and have it ready for the end of the semester! One more week everyone and we are done! 🙂

 

 

 

Week 12

This week wasn’t too bad! It was all about mashups and remixes. It was slightly confusing to memorize the difference between the 2, but I just used this website for every time I was doing an assignment.

The first assignment I did was a tutorial of how to do one of the assignments from the assignment bank. I chose to do one for one of the assignments I already did and I liked. The assignment I picked was the google draw something. It was very easy to explain as well.

If you are looking into doing this assignment and are confused on how to do it, check out my post below!

How to: Google draw something

The assignments from the assignment bank were pretty easy as well. They didn’t take me too long. The only thing that took me long was editing, but I think that’s only because I am not tech savvy.

The first assignment I chose was worth  4 stars. The assignment was to take a superhuman and put them in real life. This would show what I would do with a superhero. I would fly, and I would use that to get past traffic because hate traffic and I’m not patient enough for it. You can look at it below!

Superhero in real life?!?!

The next assignment was worth 4 1/2 stars. This one is just like the one above. We had to take a close up by an actor in a move, and edit it into a picture so it tells a story. I used one of the most well-known close ups (the Home Alone close up). I made him surprised about a roller coaster:

Home Alone? Roller Coaster?

The final assignment from the assignment bank was worth the final 3 1/2 stars. This one was to take your favorite product from one of your favorite stores, and incorporate it into their logo. Of Course, I chose Wawa Coffee!…

Edited Logo

The next set of assignments was to click the remix button on one of the assignments in the assignment bank, and complete it. We had to do 2 of these.

The first one I got was to take the picture of my favorite superhero, and incorporate a Dr. Seuss character in it. I had Spiderman and one of the characters walking along the web he threw.

Remixing Spider Seuss

The second one I got, was to take a picture I like, and put a mustache on it. It was so simple and pretty funny. I put a mustache on my dog.

Put a ‘stache on it

The final assignment for this week was the usual daily creates.

The one daily create I did, was to say something about Sadie Hawkins day. I’m female, so of course I agree with this and this day. Any time I see Sadie Hawkins day I think of the song “Man’s World”

The next daily create I chose was to celebrate the 2500th daily create! I just put in some fancy numbers!

That’s all for this week! I’m looking forward to getting a break with Thanksgiving. It’s well deserved!

Remixing Spider Seuss

This remix was quite fun to make. I had the assignment to create a banner for my favorite superhero.

The remixed part of it was to introduce a Dr. Seuss inspired character into the assignment.

Ever since I was little, I liked Spiderman. So, I used him and then I used the character from “Green Eggs and Ham” and had him running down the web. It was a lot of fun to make!

Edited Logo

This is my final assignment for the assignment bank. I picked the one where we have to edit a logo and have it include one of my favorite things from the place that the logo was made for.

I took my favorite place of wawa and added a cup of coffee in the bird’s mouth. It looks like the bird is carrying the coffee, which of course it what I always get from wawa.

Take a look!

Home Alone? Roller Coaster?

The next assignment I picked was 4 1/2 stars. This one was also pretty easy and fun.

The assignment was to take a dramatic close-up of an actor in a movie and mash it up to tell a story.

I used (of course) the well known Home Alone surprised picture. I then pair it with a roller coaster with the steepest hill out there. To make the boy from  Home Alone look terrified.

Check it out!

I hope you like it!

Superhero in real life?!?!

I picked the superhero in everyday life assignment from the assignment bank. It was worth 4 stars and seemed pretty easy.

I was right!!

I simply went online and found 2 pictures, a picture with a superhero flying, and traffic. I did this because if I could fly, I would use it to fly over 5 o’clock traffic.

I used a photo editor in order to create the picture. But, the one things was I couldn’t figure out how to get rid of the white around the super girl.

Check out my picture!

How to: Google draw something

The tutorial that I will be doing is for the assignment Google Draw Something. This one was fun and very easy to do!

Step 1: Go to the website: https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/

This is what the beginning screen will look like.

Step 2: Simply click the Let’s Draw button on the screen. A big yellow screen will pop up. It will tell you what you are going to draw in 20 seconds.

Step 3: Before you you click “Got it!” you need to understand the point of the game. You will draw what object/person/place/etc. that google says. You only have 20 seconds to get Google to guess what you are drawing.

Step 4: After you play the rounds, a screen will pop up showing all the pictures you drew. You can share it, or click play again.

That’s all for this Tutorial! I hope it helped so you can play this game and have fun as well!!! 🙂
