Talent is a pursued interest.In other words,anything that you're willing to practice,you can do.Bob Ross For my first remix, I chose to remix a Bob Ross Quote I made for a daily create.

It can be about love, friendship, family, education, culture, health, charity, etc. Design a minimalist poster depicting the concept. Extra challenge: Try to…

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):…

DAILY CREATE: Week 11

This week, we created a Pixar story and made pop art, we tessellated an object and summed up our Twitter account in one Gif, we thought of a misleading sign and posted an image of a beautiful gas station! My favorite daily's this time were probably the object tessellation and the pop art. The tessellation task was neat because I learned about a program that creates a tessellation out of the user's design. I chose to do a Mondrian square tessellation because I was inspired by the fact that you can actually make some cool programs based on Mondrian's art!As…

I’LL TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD (IDEA): Part 2

There's only a few more weeks left and as this class draws to a close, it's time to re-visit our video ideas once more. Thinking of ideas was no easier the second time around, but I tried to build off of what I already came up with and what others have come up with. I think a lot of these ideas are more ambitious than anyone has time for, but some of them just might work. Again, this is just a rough list- I can't say for sure which idea I'm most drawn to. Previous Ideas Post: I'LL TAKE THE…
