This week we created a whole movie and added in a few pictures and audio. This was a big project and I could not have done it without the help of my two friends. Amanda and Sharla are such hard workers and I could not have done any of this without them.
This week was a lot of planning a thought provoking. I say that because we had to come up with our entire story for this project. Next week will tape everything and put it all together. The hard part is the ending because I still do not know what the final result will be, but I think about everyday trying to come up with something good. If I have to I will come up with a good story, but lame end. I would rather come up with a great story and a great end, but for some reason inspiration for this has not hit yet. I feel like their is something missing in this story, but I am not sure what it is yet. I think so far we have a great story and great creative items that will complement the story, but the end is escaping me like no other and it is kind of bothering me.
First it will start out with us recording (I LOVE VIDEO PROJECTS!!) as an agency, then will get a message saying we have a mission. We will then go on that mission and discover that nothing is as it seems while having fun doing so. We have the Night Driver story and I think that it will be good. We have been tweeting like crazy and using Google Docs to help collect our thoughts. Wow! why did I just come up with an end, lol anyway it will be fun to put video, pictures, and sound together all in one major project.
So my favorite athlete is you guested it, Mr. Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. I will be honest, I have been a Packer fan my whole life and I did not like him at first. In 2005, I thought he would ruin us, but he turned out to be the best thing possible. So now I love the guy and what he has done for my team. Anyone out there that says Im a bandwagon, its just cause there good, blah blah. I would tell you all kinds of things that would probably get me into trouble. The Packers sucked after 97 season, and I have endured, we had Favre, but he would throw interceptions, and he did not make it to the playoffs that much. It was not until Ted Thompson drafted Rodgers and a few others that this team took off like a rocket. Now, you say anything you want, but I will bleed green and gold till Im dead, with or with out Rodgers. He is now and he is awesome. Watch this video.
Me, Amanda, and Sharla are working together for our Agency and I have to say it is going well. We got together on Wednesday and worked on the idea of the Agency, we came up with a name and then went to Digital Center to figure out how we could put this whole thing together. We found out that we had to go off of one of our already created websites which was easy because they helped use put it together. Once we had our website, we played around on it and got it to the awesome level we expect. Mostly Amanda worked on the website because she is amazing at that stuff. I am thankful she is in our group because I am not good at websites.
We came up with the OnLine Detectives or O.LD for short. The O.L.D is a play on word that I came up with because I feel like we are a older group at a young university. I feel young at heart, but I know my age. Age aside, we are also online. The whole class is an online class that still allows us to meet up with each other and do projects which I then thought we could be an online agency that goes out and fights crime. Since the last project, one of the members die and 2 get arrested, I thought we could use that to continue our story. In order for us to continue our story, we came up with the idea that Amanda and Sharla’s character be reformed into agents of the law.
My favorite player in the NFL is Aaron Rodgers, he is so good that he needs his own highlight reel.
Rex Ryan’s Resume
This is Rex,
Patrick interviewed me and he had some interesting questions that he got from his professor’s. I answered all of them to the best of my ability. It is strange to think I did not exist until the start of Ds106 back in January. This is my video, you better like it or I will take my fists and give you what you deserve.
I guess sometimes it does it and sometimes it does not.
This show was absolutely my favorite thing we have done in this class, I had so much fun with Kassia, Sharla, and Amanda. The three of us can create magic. We were having a good time throughout the process. The only thing that sucks was scheduling because all of us were busy all the time but we managed to get it all done.
The process was simple, we knew what it took to create a project, so we used google docs to create a great script. I do not think we followed it to the letter but the final product came out well. The problem during shooting was we did not always have the script so it was hard to follow. Luckily I knew most of the things by heart like where I wanted things, how I wanted them and what it would look like at the end.
And I just learned how to put this video up for the world to see. I just impressed myself.
Anyways, the process brought us downtown a few times, even on nice days, very cold days, we worked with what we had. I had a blast putting the whole show together.
The only painful part was uploading it. I could not figure out how to upload it to youtube, it was as simple as giving google my phone # which made me mad because I erased half the video on Sunday night trying to split the video. I learned a valuable lesson, never push “cut” because it does cut your video and do not highlight half the show then push cut. Other than that this show was incredibly rewarding, interesting and fun.
This week was great. We created an awesome video that blows my mind every time that I watch it. All the work that we put into this video has all been worth it because in the end we had fun. I learned so much in doing this project. I will use the knowledge I gained from this experience 4 LIFE!
The interview was cool because I dressed up as my character and I like this development that my character has gone through over the weeks and months. The use of my character has been fun to say the least.
This is my trailer to our movie, please watch it.
This my Kiss Me Deadly video.
So we started our group project for the video show, we came up with the script, and shoot a few things. This was a little more detailed than our radio show but since we had that experience it helped us make things go faster. We started out by finding who would be in the group, then we found out that it would be the four of us this time. Me, Kassia, Amanda, and Sharla. Once we had our group we quickly figured out a script that would fit out group and our characters. It took a few hours to come up with the idea, but we put our heads together and went back and forth with ideas until it hit us.
This week we had the radio show live on DS106 radio in which I was not a part of because I had work but everyone seemed to like it. I did how ever tweet along on Tuesday and listened to “Get a Clue” which was really good. the tweet along is always fun, the sounds, the people, and show all at the same time.
This week has been about the video, I read “How to read a Movie” and watched 3 short stories on scenes, ways to do camera angels and cinematic techniques, and Kubrick prospective. All of which taught me different things about film and how to make a good show using those techniques.
I had to watch a movie and use my critic lens to see what was interesting about a scene.
I had to record a 30-60 second trailer of my show which was fun.
