This week was all fast past for me. I had to fit in all of my last minute recordings and editing. I am really glad that we really didn’t have to do anything else, because this was a pretty stressful week. There, once again, isn’t much to talk about since we didn’t have much to do but the project. Even though we didn’t have much I feel like I put the same amount of work in these past three weeks, working on my project. In conclusion, I had a lot of fun in this class and I hope everyone else had as much fun as I did.
This week was really a brainstorming week. I was thinking about how I wanted to put my story together, and exactly what I wanted to my story to be about. Next week I want to start executing my project since I’ll have more time to make it good. I also was wondering how I was going to include my character, 5, in my story project. In conclusion, this week was as easy or as hard you make it depending on how you spend your extra time.
This week went by very smoothly, which doesn’t come often for me. Probably because most of the things I did this week had to do with images which I am pretty good at. I also found this new free app called photoshop mix. It’s like a simplified version of regular photoshop. I didn’t really have any troubles this week, the hardest part was figuring out which remixes and mashups I wanted to use.
What a week in digital storytelling, I must say I was taken back by some of the assignments. I’m just going to highlight my favorites for this week; the first being the Morse code daily create. I haven’t had to use that since the last time I was serving on a Naval vessel. I had fun refreshing my memory of it. One of the daily creates I chose was the sign language. I remember as a young girl my mother taught it to my triplet sisters and I. I must say I was embarrassed when I realize that I didn’t remember how to sign the alphabet. Then there was the lip signing I had an absolute blast with that. I sing all the time so I knew I was going to pick that one. I must be honest I was not comfortable with having to post videos of myself online this week but I did enjoy all of the projects!
This week was a really fun week. Viewing and creating videos, is something I wasn’t initially looking forward to doing this week but it turned out to be really fun. I was surprised at how popular my commercial was. My son was getting frustrated with me because we had to film it so many times. I really enjoyed watch the film that pertained to how sound effects change the dynamics of humor in a movie/film. I actually watched it twice because I thought it was very funny!
This weekly summary is going to be extra short, because there wasn’t a lot of things to do. I didn’t have any problems with anything this week, which is a shocker for me. I was happy to that we could choose our own assignment categories, I personally like the design ones. I liked the radio show that I listened to this week whoever’s team it was did a very great job.
This week was pretty easy, especially after I was able to figure out the Audacity software. I think I did really well this week with everything, I made it through the week without any troubles. Even though my radio show group and I were having communication problems we made it through and everything was finished. That was about it, it was a short week and not much to say.
This week was short, but for me it was no easier than any other week. It started with trying to find a group for the radio show, and once I finally got that we had to figure out how we were going to communicate (which we just figured out). We have got a few things done, but we are still in the making.
The audio assignments this week was a bust only because I could even get the audio to show up on the software. I have tried genuinely tried my hardest with the audio assignments, but it wasn’t working.
Also here are my comments for this week:
What a week! Each week these assignments are getting more and more creative. Well I got to read a story on visual design which was pretty cool. I had a ball making the photo blitz I really had to think out of the box with that assignment. Watched The Planet Of the Vampires, I wasn’t all that impressed, but I shouldn’t have expected much from a movie made in 1965! The daily creates were relatively easy this week and the design assignments from the assignment bank were pretty interesting. In summary I enjoyed the assignments for this week I would say the theme of this week was visual design…
This week was soooo entertaining to me; I listened to he “Moon Graffiti” audio about the Neil Armstrong landing outer space running out of gas and air. It was the first time listening to it and I must say it was so surreal. Just listening to the audio I felt like I was actually there what was strange was that the back ground of the audio was silent. All I could here was what was being said.
Another activity that I really enjoyed was the radio / tweet assignment. I went onto to the ds106radio and listened to the Pigeons and Raven show. I really enjoyed that but it was difficult to listen and tweet comments because I got caught up in listening to the story… I wasn’t sure about that Sheriff but he turned out to be OK…
Then don’t let me forget to mention my absolute favorite for this week. When I did he mocho coffee picture project. I just so happened to have some mocho coffee and was able to figure out how to photo shop a rose in the cup… I was soooo proud of myself.
Any hoot it was a really fun week for me in terms of our assignments.
