First I am going to talk about the final case. Me, Amanda, and Sharla created a radio show because we thought it would be easier and we wanted to make fun of noir kind of. I LOVE noir now and in the last week or so things happened on campus that created a cloud on dark things so we took a completely different approach. We instead wanted to do something funny because the three of us are all about humor. I don’t think it fully generated us but it gave a small insight to what kind of comedic adventures we embark on everyday and any time we are all together. The show is about the three of us in our agency and a young lady thinks her husband is cheating on her. Like every noir film, a guy cheats on the girl, so we made a different spin, he is sneaking around to make her happy and surprise her with a great gift. We do not find out till the end that it really has nothing to do with cheating because they are madly in love and we look like the fools that chased them. It was a blast to make and we got to hang around each other one last time so it was so much fun for me at least. The reason I did not take my grade and run was because I wanted to hang out with those two ladies, they are my new friends and people I respect highly.
First, the O.L.D was an awesome idea because the three of us are kind of old but we do not feel it and I think we do not look it. Compared to the 18-22 years olds the roam the campus we are old. The whole agency thing is such a great idea and I would love to take it further.
This class has been the best thing I could have hoped for in a class, I had many downs in it at the beginning because I was not getting the whole social media thing but after awhile and a lot of going outside of my comfort zone I fell in love with this class like crazy. The people I have met, the groups I have been in, and the stories that I got to tell have been incredible and I want to keep going with it and do more as long as I can. My wife has been telling me for a long time that I needed a hobby, I think creating movies and radio shows have been so much fun, I am going to do it on my own and produce something that I like. This class has given me so many resources and talents that I never had before and never thought in my wildest dreams that I would acquire. I personally would like to thank Professor Groom for not giving up on me. I was rough at the beginning, but it slowly came along. I would like to thank all of the people in the digital center for being patient with me and not getting frustrated at the guy that could not use twitter. I have so many great memories of my short college experience and most of them came out of this class. I am a ds106’er for life. I did not know what that meant until I got to the end. I will tell my digital story for as long as someone will listen.
