Weekly 15- reflection

These past two weeks I have been working on daily create ideas and assignment ideas.

The first daily create is putting yourself in a screen shot from a noir movie.

The second daily create is “See through the wall”. It is finding  what is behind a wall.

The first assignment idea is to create the work space of your character. I called it “All those books”

The second assignment idea is to create a pet for your character. I had named it “Here Kitty Kitty”

For the final project we did a radio show. It was a lot of fun. This is the poster from that  radio show.

Noir a cheater

All of the assignments, projects, and daily creates has given me a new understanding of what can go on online. It has taken me a little in the beginning to get used to everything, but I have found that I really like doing the different media.

It was hard in some of the videos to not laugh out ourselves. The fight seen with Patrick was really hard not to laugh.

Using audacity was a great learning experience. Putting the sounds together, matching up several sounds to make one. Wow, It was good using that experience when doing the video projects too. Cutting and manipulating them in just the right moments.

Thank you for an enlightening experience

Weekly Summary- Week 13

This week we finished up with our case assignment. The Night Driver game case was really fun to do.

We were able to meet several times to work on the case.

There are several blogs on the site that show the progress. One has the tweets from all three of us. The other shows the pictures from the investigation.  The first post explains how we started the program.

The ransom note and the photo that linked the culprit and groom were the visual

The voice-mail from Grooms phone is on this post.

The video took some time to finish, but we were able to get this done.

Weekly Summary- week 11

This week was fun. I worked with Mack and Rex to form the O.L.D. Agency. This agency works with the new age of criminals.

The daily creates were Happy Birthday Black and Save Noddy.

The five stars that I worked on in the design assignments were the business card and book to movie. The business card was for my agency, while the book cover was for Hackers.

The web assignments was both on Pinterest. They were my dream vacation and and my Pinterest account.

The comments for this week are for:

First onesecond one, third one, fourth one, fifth one, sixth one, seventh one, eighth one, ninth one, and tenth one.


Weekly Summary- Week 10

This week has gone by in a rush.  We were able to get several days in of video taping. One progress post, and Two progress post.

For the daily creates, I as able to do one using my finger prints. I actually posted two versions of the picture, one normal, the second in noir style. The second daily create was a 15 second batman. In looking at others, it is funny to see what different things people focus on.  The third was making art using a tree. That was different.

I was a little nervous about the interview I did, but I understand they want to get to know me. I mean, I am new to this class.

For the comments on others’ blogs, they were:

First onesecond one, third one, fourth one, fifth one, sixth one, seventh one, eighth one, ninth one, and tenth one.

Most were daily creates because I like to see the different ideas that people come up with for the same daily create.

The video project was fun to do. Rex was our leader and came up with the main idea of our story line. My cohorts for the Dexter’s Devils and I had fun pretending to be mean and bad ass.

For the agency project, the Eagles in the dark are still discussing if we are going to work together.  We seem to work well together. It will be just a bit to get each other together.

Weekly Summary -Week 9

This week, I was able to listen to my group radio show and Noir Buzz.  It was nerve racking listening to our show. The Noir Buzz, I had a hard time following.

For the video assignments, four of us from the group decided to work together to make a video.

For the daily creates, I did the a dream staircase, and arty blur. The staircase means a lot to me and is possible. The arty blur was the carpet at work. It came out so different.

I was not able to get the commentary video to save for some reason. I even tried later.  I think that I just need to play with the program some more. I did get to watch Notorious though.


Weekly summary- 8

This week, I was able to get some interesting daily creates in. The first was “Different sides of me”. The second was “Favorite Moment“. The third was “Jim Groom was kidnapped…

I was able to listen in on Thursday to the radio shows. Noir not the father was really good. Noirtalk was good too. I found different things about each to like or that caught me off guard.

The ten comments I did were:

First onesecond one, third one, fourth one, fifth one, sixth one, seventh one, eighth one, ninth one, and tenth one.  I found some very good blogs to comment on this week. Some I agreed with their inspirations.

The inspired submissions were one, two, three, and four. Most of them were visual assignments/daily creates, but they each had some great aspects to them.

For the assignments, I did an invitation, a bumper sticker, and change of scenery. All three dealt with my character, either for her store that she owns or in connection to the radio show that we did.

I did set up the email and twitter account for my character, Miakoda Ravenclaw. The email is The twitter account is @Miakoda2015.

This week was fun. Can’t wait to listen to the next set of radio shows.

Weekly Summary – 7 -Radio Show.

This week was intense. Trying to get the radio show done was hard. We finally were able to finish it up in time. The radio progress blog tells how it went.

The daily creates weren’t as fun to me as they have been. I did do three, but for some reason I wasn’t feeling them this week. Normally I like them.

Daily create 1, Daily create 2, and Daily create 3.

The comments that I did were for these ten blogs. I got to hear some of the radio shows and they were really good.  I was able to learn a new way to change tinting on photos from one blog.

First onesecond one, third one, fourth one, fifth one, sixth one, seventh one, eighth one, ninth one, and tenth one.

It has been fun doing this radio show.  It gave me a new perspective on what really goes into them. More power to those who do them.


Weekly summary- 6

This week we worked on our radio show. Our group is called Eagles in the dark. Our theme for the radio show is “Most Wanted”. The design idea blog. It seems like we made a great deal of progress thinking and collaborating on the story line of our show.

I commented on 10 different post:

First one, second one, third one, fourth one, fifth one, sixth one, seventh one, eighth one, ninth one, and tenth one.

I chose to check out different types of blogs. I didn’t want to listen to the same kinds from 10 different people. They were fun to read, look at, and/or listen too.

The radio show that I got to listen to this week was Mildred Pierce. I thought it was great.  Here is my blog for it.

The process for the radio show went well, I think. We discussed a lot of ideas and recorded part of the session. The progress blog.

I did three different assignments to add up to the 10 stars we needed. The first was the spooky sounds.  The second was the “911 fake call”. The third was the “multi-personality“.

I am looking forward to how the radio show turns out for our group and all the others.


Week Four Summary

This week was a new experience for me.  I had not had experience really with working with audio. The Audacity is a working progress for me to get better at the sound aspect of things.

Working to layer sounds to make up a scene that you can visualize was tough.

For the  audio assignments I choose to make a file with the sounds of someone getting shot. My character happens to get into the sight of someone who wants to harm her. Therefore, I wanted something suspenseful for her. This is the post.

The other audio assignments that I did were “Get this song out of my head” and “Theme Song”.

The daily creates were fun as well.  The first was the “Ruin-porn photography” which I have done different projects on before. The second is “What does the puppy thinking”.

I did not get to do the radio bumper or participate in listening to the radio broadcast due to some issues.
