The final week of this semester is finally upon us, and with it brings a multitude of digital works from the students of DS106: from The Beast and his crisis of losing his powers, to Weather Woman and her reports on Global Warming, the students of DS106 have each saved the day in many different styles. Some submissions stood on top of the others in my opinion, and while i'd like to see the full movie adaptation of those stories in the future, me putting them in the spotlight here will have to do for now.
The adventures of Mellow Man and Tech was something that I enjoyed not only for it's story and it's time traveling theme, but also for the custom drawings that the creators put the effort into creating for their heroes. This project was one that gave me the clearest image of what the students envisioned for their characters, and I was taken aback with how much more I wanted to see of the duo.
On a more serious note, the audio diaries of Weather Woman taught…
Week 12 was interesting, to say the least. I really felt invested and enjoyed working on all the assignments I chose, with the added bonus of taking away a life computer lesson: Always, ALWAYS remember to keep a copy of your work. Between holiday travel and malfunctioning equipment, I worked with a lot of different software over the course of the week. If I wasn't able to call myself an Audio/Video geek before, I probably can now.
This assignment is something that the Remix Generator threw at me that I thought was pretty unique. I had to create a fictional SuperPAC as well as translate it into another language. Seeing this as a go-ahead to poke at whatever culture I wanted, I decided to go with the Japenese this time, and the final product seems to do it justice. The basic idea of it is that our hero Kawaii is running for Emperor in 2018. Some of his policies are also scattered about. The original character comes from Adventure Time.
