3…2…1… Action! – Week 10 Recap

3…2…1… Action! – Week 10 Recap

Ugghhhhh… This week, you guys. I’m barely crawling out of week 10 alive. This week was filled with so much  to do, not just in this class, but in all of my classes! In college, the grind never ends. It’s 10:00 PM on Monday night, and I am exhausted.

But! Enough complaining!

Week 10 was the beginning of the video unit here in DS106! Say cheese while I call action!

This week started out with me completing two Daily Creates!

On Wednesday, the 28th, I decided to create my own fantasy plant! We’ve all probably heard of the  Giving Tree, but have you ever heard of the Talking Tree? Now you have! I figured this tree looked like it belongs in Horton Hears a Who, but it might not be animated enough. Anyone else agree?

On Thursday, I did the Daily Create in which I was to take a “tourist slogan” from a particular place such as Los Angeles, Niagara Falls, Paris, France, or whatever I wanted to add, and then add that slogan to somewhere it obviously doesn’t belong. So, for fun, I decided to put Disney World’s slogan or theme “The Happiest Place on Earth” under Virginia, where I live. VA can be a happy place, but is it as magical as Disney World? Probably not.

Next, I read and watched some sources in order to learn about how to read a movie! Yes, you read that correctly. You can read movies. If you want to see a more in-depth look into my reflection of the different videos and movie I watched (The Quiet Earth), I wrote all about it in one of my blog posts from this week!

The next three assignments this week came from the Video Assignment Bank for DS106!

The first video I created was a digital, video snapshot of my last three years of college in which I included numerous pictures from freshman year all the way to now, in junior year. A lot has happened in only three years! Take a look:

The next assignment was a lyric video that I created for one of my favorite songs, “Future Looks Good” by One Republic. I do not own the song or the band. I just wanted to make this video for a song I love. If you’ve never heard the song, then you can listen below!

The last video I created for this week was a quick survival tip video from Dr. Annalise Huddleston, herself! She gave some insight into how to survive the apocalypse, and clear some things up from the radio show that she starred in two weeks ago, Girls’ Guide to the Apocalypse. 

That is all from me this week! Onto Week 11 we go!


What question would you like to ask the class?

One question I would like to ask our class is:

What is your favorite memory? Why?

A Lyric Video for One Republic

A Lyric Video for One Republic

For one of my video assignments, I created a lyric video for one of my favorite songs, Future Looks Good, by One Republic. I had a lot of fun creating this video! I downloaded the song from a YouTube video, and then looked up the lyrics on A-Z Lyrics. Once I had the song and the lyrics, as well as a background image to use, I used iMovie to animate and create a lyric video! It was definitely time consuming, however, it was a lot easier and more fun than I thought it would be! Maybe I’ll make more lyric videos in the future!
