(I'm a fan of mashups- they're fun to do). In my mind, remixes and mashups are the same thing, but I can see how remixes are a little more limited with one type of media, whereas mashups take content from all over. Mashup Assignments I did 10 stars of mashups this…

WEEKLY SUMMARY: Week 11

Hey you guyyyyyyyyys!Melody Sloth This week, we continued on with our video mission and created another round of videos! We thought about the storytelling aspects of our video-making, and how we could incorporate radical editing into our work. Final Project Ideas: Part 2 We came up with another round of ideas for our video projects, and it definitely was not easier this time around. I tried to build off of previous ideas, but I'm not wholly discounting ideas from my first Ideas post. I'll have to mull it over some more. Post: I’LL TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD (IDEA):…

♪ Hit me with your best shotWhy don't you hit me with your best shotHit me with your best shotFilm away ♪ Pat "Melody" Benatar It's video week at Ds106, and this week we got to explore the ways in which the camera and the editing process help tell a story. Acting only drives the story so far, but editing is what really sells it. And what better way to see how editing functions than to watch a film and hit pause on the action! Video Essay I kicked off video week by making a video essay on the film,…

WEEKLY SUMMARY: Week 5

Sweet Sounds (Are Made Of This) https://soundcloud.com/giorgiomoroder/eurythmics-sweet-dreams-remix This week was all about audio as we explored how sound effects, music, and words can drive a story. We created a radio bumper, reflected on audio, and tweeted along to a dramatic story. This was a challenging week, as I think most us were new to creating and editing sound. But it got me thinking about how sound helps tell a story. Audio Storytelling What makes a good audio story? How can sound be used to create mood? This week, we reflected on audio by watching The Truth Podcast's, 'Moon Graffiti,' and listened…

Take On Visual Media This week, our photography skills were put to the test as we did 12 stars worth of visual assignments, a photoblitz, a photo analysis, and a photo reflection. Phew! That's a lot of photo taking. I think I'll be gone in a day or two to decompress. https://imgur.com/gallery/TMbfP Photo Reflection: I kicked things off by reflecting on my current/previous experience with photography in my post, 'GOTTA GET THAT, THAT THAT (Picture).' I do have previous experience in photo taking from my time at George Mason, where I learned all about rule-of-thirds, foreground/background, lighting, etc. We also…

WEEKLY SUMMARY: Week 3

♪ Let me tell you a story ♪ This Week, we took a Nohzdyve into reading, writing, and hypertext fiction. Some of the questions we had to ponder were, "If digital writing is different, how does that make digital storytelling different?" and, "How do we make that work for us?"I think the best way to answer that is with a GIF: With the ability to add hypertext, video, sound, images, tweets, GIFs, and just about anything else you can think of, digital storytelling differs from the traditional in that it is not a static way of writing. I could have…
