    Mission Remix

    For our mission we should get into groups and create trailers for a movie. We should then be given a real spy mission to complete, like in detail. How will we complete the mission? We should use multiple social media sites in order to complete the mission. Even work together to come up with the best solutions to tackle the mission.

    Remix Spaceballs

    So the original assignment was to pick our favorite movie and mashup the best scenes from it which explains the story of that movie. The remix card was to do the opposite of what the assignment said to do. So I decided to do my least favorite movie and instead of mashing up the scenes, I am just putting pictures of scenes together. To create this assignment I simply took pictures of scenes of the movie Spaceballs and placed them in collage form on Word, took a screen shot and placed it in this post! It was pretty simple. I thought it was interesting to do the opposite of an…

    Remixed Mashed-up Logo

    We were asked to do two remix assignments. This first one we were asked to turn this assignment into a really bad power-point presentation. We were asked to do everything wrong in terms of design, bad colors, dense text, bad graphics. This was super cringe-y to make but here is my remix mashup. Again, super cringe-y to make this power-point but it is kind of funny. I created this power-point in Microsoft PowerPoint and then took screen shots of the slides and placed them in this post. It was simple to create the Powerpoint, I just didn’t like that it had to have bad colors, poor design, and bad graphics.…

    Oreo One Tutorial

    I decided to do my tutorial for the one star assignment in which we were asked to use one brand’s advertisement for another brand by replacing the logo of one brand with the logo of another. I thought this was a pretty interesting concept so I was excited to try it out! Here is my assignment: Although it doesn’t make a ton of sense, I love oreo cookies and fiber one is suppose to be good for you…so I went with the mash-up! I thought of this combo pretty quickly, and then decided this would be a good assignment to do my tutorial for since I believe Adobe Photoshop Mix…

    Text Story

    For this 5-star mash-up assignment, we were asked to grab a friend (or two phones and text yourself back and forth) and text each other to tell a story. I thought this was a pretty cool idea because I had seen it done before on Facebook and other social media sites. Here is what my friend and I came up with. It was a pretty silly story, but it was a fun assignment to do. In order to capture our texting back and forth I used the screen recording feature on the iPhone. Once we completed our story I uploaded the video to iMovie and adjusted a few things. One,…

    Disney Mash-up

    For one of my 10-star assignments I chose to do the Disney Mash-up (4-stars). We were suppose to take our favorite Disney songs and mash them up! Here is what I came up with: To do this assignment I went to Youtube and found three of my favorite Disney songs and worked in iMovie to get them all to mash as best as possible. Believe it or not this assignment took me about an hour or so to complete! I struggled most with trying to decide where to fade in the music and where to fade it out. It was also difficult to find three songs to coordinate and have…

    What’s the Mission?

    I believe our next mission should involve several things that we have learned so far this semester (that includes our characters). I like the idea of creating a video collage or a video story of our characters. I have really enjoyed looking and playing with iMovie and think that a mission that incorporated video would be really fun! We could also create a mission that includes all forms of media that we set up for this class such as Instagram, YouTube, SoundCloud. Maybe we could create a story of a mission for our character that is threaded through all these sites!

    Progress/ Wrap-Up

    This post includes our progress this week and wrap up of how the filming went! Last week our group used GoogleDocs to come up with a solid plan. This week our group got together over Google Docs as well as in person to finalize our ideas for our episode “Girl Power”. This episode is a spin off of our radio show that we did, so we continued with the main topic, female secret agents. Here is our basic outline that we put together last week in order to finalize more of the episode this week. We decided to go for more of an Ellen Show inspired show since all of…

    Video Essay

    This assignment was interesting! It felt very awkward to talk about the scene as it was rolling but I think it turned out pretty okay. This scene is hilarious, the whole movie is really, but I tried not to chuckle too much during recording. To create this video essay, it was actually quite simple. I figured which movie and which scene I wanted to use pretty quickly. Once I found the video on YouTube I downloaded it using 4K Downloader and uploaded it to my iMovie app. iMovie makes it easy to record over while the video is playing so I did that. Then uploaded it to YouTube! Despicable Me…

    Talk Show Plan & Trailer

    For one of the assignments this week we had the option to work with others in a group to come up with a video episode. Our group is choosing to do a talk show/game show. Here is a trailer I came up with for our show: Creating this trailer wasn’t too hard. I already had iMovie downloaded onto my computer so I just needed to find videos and music to go along with it. I think the most difficult thing was planning which videos I would want to use and how I wanted to use them. I found some videos of female secret agents from movies and episodes to create…
