Progress Report

This week for my final project, I have really taken the time to think about the direction I wanted to take for my project. Since I was thinking about creating a project based on overcoming obstacles, I was thinking of creating almost like a documentary, or like progress I have made since starting this class to completing it. So far, I have created somewhat of a flyer for my work. Right now, I am working on writing a little bit of a script for my video/documentary. In my video, since our theme is Bob Ross, I plan on having my cousin dress up as Bob Ross and narrate my story while he is creating a picture. I plan on shooting that video on Monday or Tuesday.

Weekly Summary

This week has just reminded me of how close we are to the end! I feel that many of my professors are just now starting to hand out and assign their final projects! It is a bit overwhelming but I am trying to manage! For this week I was able to use more of my photoshop skills, especially with being able to cutout certain pictures and stick them onto a photo. Which you can see in these mashup and remix assignments below!

I was also able to complete my three daily creates for this week, which you can check out down below!

Remixing

For this assignment, I remixed my Care Bear mashup! The remix asked that I change the mood of my last mashup. By doing so, I changed the happy care bear mood to a sad and scared one! I used Pixlr again for this assignment because I find it quite simple to crop and cut out photos by using that system. I am still working on my cutout and photoshop skills but I did the best that I could, so let me know what you think!

Mix it up!

So I remixed the Holiday Mashup assignment! For my remix, I had to add in a sidekick! So for my holiday remix mashup, I added in Santa’s favorite helper and guider of his sleigh! If you don’t who I am talking about, I am talking about Rudolph the red nose reindeer! I cut out a photo of him and pasted it onto my original photo.

Care Bears?!

For this assignment I was tasked with taking an actor’s face and putting or superimposing the landscape over the face or however you want to call it. The first thing I thought of was that meme that I always saw with James Van Der Beek’s face. Basically he was about to cry in one scene and I decided to cut out his face from my screenshot and paste it onto the Care Bears tv show front cover. I figure this would have been a great fit due to the Care Bears not having a “Sad” Care Bear. Yes, there is a Grumpy Care Bear but there is not just a sad one. Typically when you see care Bears, you think of happiness and colorful but then you add someone with a sad expression on the front cover and it just looks ridiculous to me. However, let me know what you think of this!

Holiday Mashup

For this assignment, I was tasked with combining three of my favorite holidays onto one photo. My favorite holiday would definitely have to be Christmas, and my family still likes to convince the kids that Santa is real…..lol . So, I decided it would be easiest to find a picture of Santa for this. My next favorite holiday would definitely have to be Valentines Day. I am not sure if a lot of people consider this a holiday but I do. So, I just copied a picture of a heart and posted onto my photo along with Santa. My third favorite holiday would have to be Easter due to my favorite animal being a bunny and the fact that I receive so much candy on that day. Basically for all of the photos that I had found, I pasted them on Pixlr and cut them out to make them neater. From there, I then worked on layering/placing them where it would make the most sense. Overall, I think this picture spreads the joy, love and creativeness just upon first glance. However, let me know what you guys think of this!

Weekly Summary

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a fantastic week! This week I had a lot on my plate. I had to complete a couple other projects from my other classes at the beginning of this week, so I did not really have too much time to really complete some of these Video Assignments like I had wanted to. However, I was only able to create two daily creates this week, which can be seen down below.

Next up, I completed 10 stars worth of assignments this week! I created a Night Time Routine video, a Dear 16 Year old me video, a How to be a Healthier You video and a What do You do on an everyday basis video. Which all of those videos can be seen down below!

My Night Routine!

So, for this Assignment, I was tasked with recording my night time routine! It is weird to have the camera on you as you are completing your routine, I do not understand how these Youtubers do it. However, I must say that I did enjoy creating and editing the video. I would love to hear the feedback from you guys about my editing skills. Next time when I complete this video, I will for sure add music but I hope you guys enjoy my video because this actually a real routine of mine and not just one I made up for the camera!

How to be a Healthier you

In this assignment, I believe it stated to give tips on anything you want to. So, I decided I would take the tips that my mom has taught me while I was growing up. To this day, I still follow these tips that she has taught me. I mean these tips may not be for everyone, but if you would like to hear them, please take a peak at my video and let me know if there are any tips that you practice or anything!

What do YOU do on an everyday basis?

This assignment, I had to record myself performing an activity that I do on an everyday basis. I had to record myself for 8 seconds, so I decided to record myself texting. I mean I am not going to lie and say that I do not text on an everyday basis because I do. I decided to incorporate the texting sounds along with my video. I also added a title screen with the question from the prompt.
