DS106 week 12 summary

This week was all about remixes and mash ups. I preferred the mash ups because it was really fun to put things together that weren’t together in the first place (plus it was a little easier than remixes).  It was kind of like an original idea using work that was there for you.  I really liked doing the assignment live vs. studio record because I listen to the live version of the song I did all the time so it was easy to mash them together and I had a lot of fun doing it.  All of the assignments and remixes should be in blog posts on my page and here are the TDCs https://twitter.com/TristenStevens3/status/931526602076360704



and my comments are here



Superhuman in Everyday Life (remix)

So, as you know, I would fly to class so I am never late but if I were to have a sidekick, who would it be and what would he do? Well, I have come to the conclusions that my sidekick would be Brain Man.  He would be able to help me on my exams that I won’t be late for anymore so now I look like the perfect student.

Music Switching, Live Vs Studio


The song is All Night Thing and it is studio recorded by Temple of the dog and mashed with the live version just sang by the lead singer Chris Cornell (RIP).  I used the Audacity program to put the two songs together at the right times.  Personally, I like the live version better. (assignment for 3 1/2 stars)

The You Doodle Walk through

For this assignment, I had trouble finding the right photo editor so I asked my friend and he told me about this app called YouDoodle. Its a real simple app where you can put pictures together and cut out what you need to keep in the photo you are trying to make.  The hardest part for me personally is trimming out the extra parts in a picture I am trying to use. In the YouDoodle app, they have a cut and trim option where you just circle around the spot you don’t want to keep and cut that out. And you don’t have to worry about cutting out the picture behind it because you can set that as the background. and it won’t be cut out. When youre done, save it to your photo gallery and then email it yourself or import it on your computer.  Once I got the idea I wanted and the right app, It took me about 10 minutes to finish it.  So if you are looking for an easy way to mash some photos together, I would recommend youdoodle.

week 11 in ds106

This week we made movies where we had to add different themes from what we learned from our previous week. It was fairly simple to make once you get the hang of it and it is a lot of fun.  I really like making comical movie and if I had more knowledge and time to work on the movie, it would have came out a lot better but time always gets the better of me.  My TDCs are on my twitter!

ds106 Movie

I forgot to add my thanks to windows movie maker and audacity so… thank you. For this film ( as mediocre as it is) I tried to use the shot/reverse shot when I am talking to the character like what the Coen brothers do but they do it at a way better scale. I always tried to use a long and continuous shot in the beginning and walk with the character.  We were sitting in his dorm and I was trying to think of an idea of what to film and I felt cramped in his room so I wanted out and boom, there was my movie idea.

Another Mission

As Mellow Man wakes up at a leisurely time of 11:45 am, he hears what sounds like a scream. Mellow man takes his long board and flies down the freeway trying to avoid as much LA traffic as possible. While he is going down the road, he notices a lot of angry drivers. He uses his super powers to calm the drivers because there is nothing more scary than road rage. Mellow man arrives at the scene to find out it is a college student studying for her final. She is freaking out because she has an 89.4 in the class and needs an A in the class to pass and continue on to grad school.  She is stressing out like crazy and Mellow Man knows who is behind this, who is making her stress so much that her hair is falling out: Sinister Psycho.  Psycho makes everything stress out way too much to the point where they just can’t bear it anymore. What will Mellow Man do? Can he save this girl in time and stop Sinister Psycho? He needs to find Psycho adn stop him before it too late!
