This week was all about remixing and mashups. I spent a lot of time combining different techniques with one another and enjoyed my time doing that. Below you can find the assignments I completed.
For the 2nd remix, I did the Pop Star Out of Place assignment and remixed it. I decided to use the set of Happy Days as the place that the pop star would be out of place in and Harry Styles as my pop star because he was the first person who came to mind. I really enjoyed this assignment and remixing it was fun.
This week, the class focused on remixes and mashups. This is my first remix. I was told to make a collage of things that help me relax while also using this as an opportunity to advertise DS106.
This week there was a focus on web editing and assignments. I was worried about how difficult the week would be, so as usual… I put it off. However, I found out that I really enjoyed the week in and of itself. You can find my assignments from the week below.
I decided that I wanted to nominate some art for the cover of the DS106 Page. So, I nominated one of my assignments and an assignment from Courtney Hardy as well. All semester, I’ve been super impressed by the art that she has created and I think that DS106 admins should showcase it.
I did the Google Draw Something assignment for 2.5 Stars. The assignment was really fun, but pretty difficult. It was a quick assignment to do and I did it like it was a game, but it was hard to draw things because I don’t have much artistic ability.
Unfortunately, during the original streaming of the radio shows on Monday and Tuesday I was unavailable to listen. However, Professor Bond allowed me to listen to the show by sending me a link and allowed me to still be able to do the review. So, I listened to Distress Signal and absolutely loved it!
Distress Signal was so creative and well thought out! The intro to the show hooked me and made me want to continue listening. The girls were super authentic and organic during the show and that made me smile. Specifically during the different games they did, they seemed to have real reactions which was really cool to hear.
They also related every thing in the show to the superheroes they created, even the weather forecast and I thought that was really creative. The different sound effects were amazing, I love the destruction sounds. The girl’s commercials were super professional and if I didn’t know better, I may have thought they were real commercials!
Also, their use of different voice effects to create “callers” that called into the station was intriguing. Last but not least, I noticed that the girls created a photo specifically for their radio show which was super clever. I didn’t even think to do that and I wish I would’ve.
I’m super impressed by what the girls did with their show and love how creative they were! Great job Distress Signal!
