Weekly Summary # 12

I started this week’s work by doing the remix assignments.  The first assignment that I chose to do is the complete opposite of the assignment “Places I want to visit”.

Places I don’t want to visit

For the second assignment, I converted the medium. In past, I made a collage, but now I have made a video.

Places of Peace

From the mashup bank, I did three assignments:

holiday mashup

Photo Mash

Crazy Mashup

I have also made a tutorial of iMovie, which explains how you can use iMovie to combine all the pictures and then add background music in it.

I also completed two daily creates of the week. First one was about finding 106 in our world while the second one was about making shadows using lamp lights.

 

Places I don’t want to visit

In past, I did this assignment without the remix in which I made a video composed of pictures of places where I want to go.  To remix it, my task was to make something completely opposite of that. So I found the pictures of places which I do not want to visit and then I made a video to combine all those picture. In the end, I added a background music in it to make the experience of my viewers more pleasant.

holiday mashup

I chose to do this assignment from the mashup bank in which I had to use the  photo editing tool to mashup my top three favorite holiday celebrations. I used gimp to do this. I would say that its too hard for me to use gimp. I particularly used lasso tool from the gimp to cut the part I wanted from the pictures. In the picture I have combined Christmas, thanksgiving and New Year in it .

Photo Mash

The task of this assignment was to mash the pictures of two actors in a single picture.  To do that, I chose pictures of Emma Watson and Zac Efron from google and used  photoshop to do merge them in to two pictures.

Crazy Mashup

Take a dramatic closeup of anyone’s face – an actor’s, a friend’s, your own – and superimpose a landscape or scene over the face. Since this is a mashup, get crazy with it.

The picture itself looks very scary and crazy,  it is my friend’s picture. I used gimp to cut the part of face I wanted and pasted it in a separate background. I wanted the face to be a little shorter and in fact, it was a lot shorter than the background picture I found but whenever I was cutting the part using the lasso tool and pasting it in a different background. the face looked larger. I did not know how I could fix it, so I just left it there. it

Weekly Summary # 11

Since I was very busy with other assignments throughout this week, I have completed everything today! I started by completing  all the video assignments from the assignment bank. The first assignment was about compiling pictures of my dream place in a video.

Dream Place

For my second assignment from the video bank, I chose to take a video of one of the thing that I do every day.

What do you do??

For the third and last assignment from the video bank this week, I chose to do the video of something I am terrible at doing.

what I am terrible at?

Out of all the three assignments that I have discussed above, I enjoyed doing the first one only. After that, I completed the three daily creates in one day which I know is not right but I did not have any other option.

I wanted to also do the daily create of Friday, but I did not have a single picture of my childhood in my laptop.

Last but not the least, I did the assignment of thinking of a crisis my superhero can solve.

Superhero crisis

what I am terrible at?

For the third and last assignment from the video bank this week, I chose to do the video of something I am terrible at doing. I liked the idea of this assignment, but I could not think of any so I just took the idea from the assignment description. I have done the stitching of clothes once or twice in my lifetime, and I feel that I am terrible at it. So I asked my mom to take a video of me while I am doing a little bit of stitching.

What do you do??

For my second assignment from the video bank, I chose to take a video of one of the thing that I do every day. I have a bag of nuts at the table of my room, and I eat a handful of nuts from that bag everyday. I eat it because nuts are healthy and tasty and I would recommend everyone to eat some nuts everyday.

side note: After watching the video, I get the feeling as if I am advertising the brand of welson farm.
