It is finally hitting me. This is the last week of ds106. What a ride it has been. I had no idea I was going to make it to the end but here I am. It was extremely difficult but at the same time it was really fun. Its a bitter sweet moment but I am ready for what lies in front of me. I would like to give a special thanks to Professor Bond. He gave me the tools to succeed and helped me along the way the entire time. You’ll be lucky to have a teacher that cares about his students as much as he does. As I close out this final blog post, I would like to share a quote with you that comes from one of the greatest characters of all time “The journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path… One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass… And then you see it…. White shores… and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.” Thank you and good night.
I had fun doing this. Eric Dorman and I used audacity for the sounds, hero machine 3 to create the characters and Filmora to put the film together. The story is about our super heroes Mellow Man and Tech and they have to go back in the past and save King Arthur from the time traveling chrome or else everything in the present will change. Here is the videoDS106 Final Crisis (1)
To all of the upcoming students that want to take part in this super ds106 class, I have some advice for you. First, enjoy yourself and the assignments. These assignments that you are tasked with are based off of your own ideas. You should always talk about stuff you love. And second, make sure you keep up to date with your assignments. You can really lose track of where you are at quickly if you don’t do your work. And thats all so have fun!
Week 13 is the start of the final projects. I am in a group with Eric Dorman and for our final crisis for the superheroes we made (Tech and Mellow Man), they are going to try to stop a time traveling villain which brings them back to the medieval times. It’ll incorporate the heroes and villains of the time (king Arthur, Robin Hood, etc.) To incorporate what we learned in class, we will create our heroes using the software hero machine 3 and make a video using different sounds a visual techniques. Eric is currently working on making the heroes while I am in charge of creating the script and hopefully it will turn out as planned!
