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.
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…
For this assignment I was tasked to Superimpose - or 'blend' two images together. The two things that made this assignment worthwhile were the quick 3 min tutorial on a useful technique in GIMP and how long the example for this assignment had me laughing. In the spirit of that, I tried to do something comedic as well. And so here's Nicolas Cage watching TV.
