Weekly Summary 13&14

These last two weeks have been…. DIFFERENT! I just recently got my brand new Macbook Air, I am officially a MAC person now! I love it very much but learning how to do everything on here was a bit frustrating I should say, editing photos are a bit fun though. There are a lot of apps that I can use to get things done now. I also hear that video editing on Mac’s is a great experience, so for the upcoming weeks I am pretty excited to do these assignments!

This week I learned a lot more about Remix and Mashups than I thought that I already knew, well for one I thought they were the same thing, like synonyms. But I most definitely was wrong, their are many studies on the subjects that I read over. Many which said the same things over and over but still came out with some unknown information. I think I explained it pretty well and gave great examples in my assignments!

REMIX VS MASHUPS

This is my remix vs mashups reflection, which took me like a million tries! I kept stuttering over and over again. But I got it done and hope you enjoy it and get what I am trying to say. If you listen you will clearly understand the differences between the two. Well the person that I talked to about it did, so I’m sure you will too!

I used my own integrated mic to record this audio and uploaded it to soundcloud to embed it here onto my blog. Sometimes soundcloud works perfectly and then sometimes it takes FOREVER. Any idea why that is?

Focus On One Color [Remixed]

remix it assignmentThe focus on one color assignment looked really cool, and I had never done something like it this whole semester so I figured it would give it a shot. I immediately knew what I would take a picture of and I decided it would be a picture of half of my shoe collection. A lot of the boxes are opened because I recently wore the shoes and haven’t put them back yet, oh well! šŸ˜‰ The majority of my shoe boxes are orange or have orange in them seeing how most of my collection is NIKE and that’t their color. So I used a photo editor online, (fotor.com) and used the color splash feature, which turns the whole picture black and white and you have to choose with a brush which parts you want to reveal. That was simple enough. Because this photo editor didn’t have the feature to add another photo, I had to use another (piZap.com) which I am already familiar with. From their I added the “Wreck it Ralph” Character onto one of my shoe boxes as if he was standing on it. I chose him because that pose is how I feel when I look at all my shoes, I feel accomplished, I don’t know why I enjoy them so much. I uploaded the photo to Flickr and transferred it onto my amazing blog!:) I Ā have some photos below of me using both the photo editors I used to create this masterpiece.

Video Game Cover Mashup

Ds106

Call of Duty; Smash Bros Edition! Fun for all ages! Bring back your childhood and play with one of the famous Mario characters or join the future and enjoy this first person shooter with plenty of exciting action and gore. I thought this would be great idea because the new “Call of Duty; Black ops 3” had just came out and I’ve been playing it non-stop. But I wanted to take this serious first person shooter and turn it into something funny and a bit more childish. So I mashed the two titles together, Call of Duty and Super Smash Bros 4. I took a game that I used to play all the time when I was younger, and mixed it with a game that I play now. I took a picture of the call of duty cover off of google, then used a picture editor on my phone to crop, each of the Smash Bros characters out and simply added them to the cover in places that matched up perfectly. After I just saved it to my phone and uploaded it to Flickr. Here is a screenshot of me editing the picture on the app.

Mashing Friends and Emojis

Emoji face

I seen this assignment and immediately knew who I wanted to use for it. My girlfriend is alway making those enjoy faces and this has got to be her favorite one. She constantly sends it to me, (maybe because I get on her nerves). It’s nice to have all of these fun assignments where I can put my own spin on them. This was very simply all I did was get the two pictures, and combined them together using the popular app “PicCollage”, uploaded it to Flickr and shared it to my blog. I think it is a nice addition!
