Week 14

This week, I finished the last components of my Digital Storytelling course. I published my game on Squiffy and detailed my creative process in a post on my blog. Then, I uploaded a short trailer for it on YouTube and posted about it. Through these projects, I tried my best to utilize several of the […]

Over Thanksgiving break, I completed my final project, a choose your own adventure game based on a play I wrote. You can find and play the game by clicking the link above. Making this project was a very long and difficult process, one which I will attempt to describe in this post. Writing for this […]

Week 13

This week has been a bit busy, but I was fortunate enough to continue making progress on my final project. I didn’t get as far as I wanted too this week, but I still made some progress with the story and some of the visual assets I intend to use. As of right now, I […]

Week 12

We’re almost at the end. While I’m sad to be leaving behind the assignment bank, I’m glad to have the opportunity to hunker down and work on my final project. For this week, I did two mashup assignments and two remix assignments. My first mashup was an edit of the 1993 Super Mario movie to […]

Fresh From the Oven

I completed three more daily creates for this week. First, I responded to a story prompt with two images. The prompt was “a witch was murdered by someone who was 100 years old.” I responded with an image of a gingerbread house and an old German man with a gun. The idea I was going […]

Swindon Monthly

I wanted to do something new for my second remix assignment. I chose to remix the “We’ve got you covered” assignment since I had considered doing that one in the past. The remix I got was to make it intentionally cheesy, to the point of being awful. In honor of my play opening this week, […]

Country Bob

I revisited my Bob Ross dollar bill for my first remix assignment. The remix I got was to somehow “countrify” my bill. I did this by downloading a png of a cowboy hat that was at a similar position to Ross’s head in the unedited picture I used. I then placed it on top of […]

Rocketeer

One of my favorite comfort movies is the 1991 superhero film The Rocketeer. One of the most prominent descriptions of the film that I have seen is that it is “an airborne Indiana Jones.” So, for my second mashup assignment, I decided to make a Rocketeer poster in the style of Indiana Jones. The specific […]

The Mario Movie

In honor of the recent announcement of the Illumination Animation Mario movie cast, I decided to attempt the Photo Mash assignment. For this assignment, I wanted to make an edit of an image from the original 1993 Mario movie, replacing Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo with Chris Pratt and Charlie Day. I started by finding […]

Week 11

This week, I completed 11 stars worth of video assignments. This is because, for one, the final product ended up being a bit shorter than the required length, so I thought doing a bit of extra work would help compensate for that. I made a silent movie trailer, a five second video, and a video […]
