Finishing Up!

This is so bittersweet! My last post for wire106 and ds106 (hopefully not ds106)! This semester was so much fun and its all thanks to this class! Ds106 was my favorite class I've taken so far here at UMW and I'm really glad I decided to take it. I was on the fence over the summer and whether or not I should take it but I don't regret that decision at all. I learned so much from this class and its helped me learn about what I potentially want to work with as a career. I can't recommend this class enough!...Read More

Video Remixmas

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This week was fun! I had a rough time with the mashups but once I sat down and completed them it was much easier than I thought it was going to be! I also liked the remix. I was tasked to over exggerate a photo, and that was a lot of fun. I just went crazy with the filters. The Motivational epigraph was a lot of fun too! So here's what I did this week: Assignments: Fox News Remix Epigraph Motivational Poster The Frozen Dead   Final Project posts: Beatrice's Dream Vacation Honey Ham Haiku   Comments:...Read More

Videos Galore!

Hi! So these weeks were a lot of fun! Although this week was really cold, I found that editing was the perfect thing to keep the time from passing slowly! This is how I feel since the temperature dropped! I really like video editing so I loved that we had to create the Swede! That was by far my favorite episode. Also this week I loved looking back on other people's work and see what they created this week! As I'm writing this I'm at home in Virginia Beach, sitting in a local coffee shop and I'm trying not to...Read More

Radio Show Week!

Hi guys! So this week was the radio show week! So as a group, Demi, David, Amy and I decided we would create a news reel for different events that happened throughout the Wire. We met twice during the process of creating the radio show, once to brainstorm what we were going to do and the second time to finalize what was going on and pick what specific part we were going to create. . We created a google doc of our ideas! So we decided to create our own "sub" radio station called 76.5. From there we each made a...Read More

Getting the Hang of Things

Hi! This is a week summary that was from a while back, during week 3. I didn't have a weekly summary but here it is now! During week 3 we were given the task to complete 3 different assignments from the different assignment banks, whether they be from, design, audio, visual etc. I remember making the infograph and I really enjoyed that! The web assignment was fun too, it was interesting to look at the different characters. Here are my Posts: A New Spin on A Storyline Design ~Here I used a website to create a infograph about an episode in...Read More

Another Week With Audio

Hey guys! Here is my weekly summary! I am definitely enjoying this time off that and I hope you guys are too! This week was another week filled with audio. At first I thought this was a daunting week but I really enjoyed it! These assignments were a great distraction from my actual work since my brain was on fall break mode already. I continued to work with audacity and I am getting to know it more and more. One of the major assignments we had this week is the Radio show. We have to create a 20-30minute radio show...Read More

An Interesting Week with Design

I really enjoyed this week topic of design. Although I had a hard time with the aspect of design I really got the hang of it by the end of the week! Most of the assignments I completed with Photoshop and I have to say I really like using it to create the different images. Here is my Design Blitz! I also participated in the discussion for season 2 episode 10. During this week I made it a point to improve my commenting skills! Here are the posts I commented on this week: Maggie Stough's How to Ziggy  Stefanie Reutter's McNulty The...Read More

A Cool Week with Visuals

So this week was awesome! I really liked how it was a visual week. I really enjoy things like taking pictures and I was looking forward to the different assignments we could do! By far my favorite assignment was Favorite Lyrics! I really liked how I could use my own pictures to show the emotion of the song. My favorite picture is this one that has the song Between the Raindrops by Lifehouse on it [caption id="attachment_201" align="alignnone" width="728"] Here it is on Flickr![/caption]   I think this is one of my favorite pictures that I've taken!   The next assignment...Read More
