♪ People just love to play with words/images/audio/videoPeople just love to play, haven't you heard?People just love to play with words/images/audio/videoPeople just love to play, haven't you heard? ♪Melody(Men) at Work This week was perhaps the best week of Ds106, because we got to make mashups, remixes, and tutorials! (I'm a fan of mashups- they're fun to do).

Mashup Assignments I did 10 stars of mashups this…

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,…

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…
