I did some mashup assignments the first week of class and really enjoyed it so I was excited for this week. I did some photo, audio, and video combinations! I had never used the Remix button but it was actually fun to do. Check out what I have done this week!
We had to do a tutorial for this week on an assignment. I chose to use this combination video as an example. iMovie is very simple to work with so hopefully for anyone with a Mac will get some help from my tutorial below:
Since we had to remix one assignment that we have done before I chose my favorite, the 2 acts mashup. The mashup I chose to do was of 2 different Jokers sitting across from each other. The remix asked me to make it look visually like Jackson Pollack art. I thought this was a great remix because Jackson Pollack has some crazy art so it really fits with the Jokers.
The second remix I did was on a visual assignment. It originally asked to make it seem like you took your pet to UMW but the remix asked to make it Dr.Suess. I used the Lorax as my pet and brought him to campus to see all the foam in the fountain!
One mashup this week was taking images from 2 different movies and putting them into one. I will have to give credit to the idea from my boyfriend for this one. I have never seen these movies but after he explained his idea and I out it all together, it made sense. This was a fun assignment! I actually used the remix button because the remixes are really neat.
Another mashup I did was for 2 movies in 1 line. I chose a scene from Men in Black and Suicide Squad. This was a hard assignment because you either have to watch the whole movie or know exactly where you want the line from. I think the lines I chose fit well together, I just wish the background scenes were more similar to make it seem like it actually happened.
The last mashup I did was a audio clip. It was to choose songs and then clip them to just 2 seconds long to see if people can guess the songs by just the split 2 seconds that they hear it. This assignment was really fun to do!
For this daily create we had to re create a family photo. My cat is part of my family so I chose these 2 images. The top one was not long after we got her as a kitten, when I was 5. The bottom picture is her and I a few years ago in a similar pose. I love this re creation!

For this daily create we had to take an image and make it black and white but let red shine through. I chose this image from Busch Gardens of a strawberry shortcake. I chose this because the color of the red is so vibrant in person that I knew making the rest black and white would really make it pop! I used the website Fotor.com to create this.
