I’m a Girl!

So for this assignment, honestly, it didn’t have any instructions but was called “I’m a girl” so I just went with my imagination and said that I would gather pics of some of my favorite “girl stores” to shop and also include some music to it; so I did!

 

Bora Bora Video!

So for this video assignment, we were asked to do a video montage of images and/or video of the places that you would like to go, and add music that is native to the that area or just something fun.  For this, I am still in love w/Bora Bora and so I went online, downloaded some images of Bora Bora to my computer, and this time I actually used the video editing software on my laptop (I can’t really tell what it is) but I have Windows.  I was looking for the name “Movie Maker” but can’t seem to find it however it’s very very good and easy to work with, easier than Movavi.  After I saved the pics, I was able to easily upload them to the software, add some fun music and then save and upload to youtube below.

 

 

Get to know Ora

For this assignment, I selected a ton of pics that best depict my life. Most of the pics are of me, my family and places that I’ve recently traveled – this pretty much sums up my life right now.   I uploaded them to Movavi and then added music that was available for download within the app, as well as a voiceover for narration.  I actually am beginning to really like Movavi – I’m still in the trial period right now and so I will see how I feel at the end of the 7 days.  This process wasn’t as difficult for me since I had some practice with using this app from last week.  Photo cred all belongs to me or someone from the Wilson clan lol.

Week 10 Summary

For my video essay post, I’m glad to say that after a few hours, I finally figured out how to upload at LEAST a minute and a half voice over for the scene I chose! Shew that was a process! After many, many, many tries of downloading the software recommended in the lesson, I was able to figure out how to use 4K Video Downloader to download the scene from a youtube video. I then used Movavi to edit and do the voiceover. The video downloader and Movavi were both actually pretty easy to use, my issues came with trying to figure out how many of which softwares to use in order to get to the end product which just took me time to figure out for whatever reason. Of course as always though, now that I’m a bit more familiar with this process, I have one additional thing that I know how to do and can definitely use in the future..

Hillmonger scene in Black Panther

For this assignment, I had to record myself lip syncing to a song – DEFINITELY not a norm for me – very awkward ! Anyway, my song choice is from one of my favorite artists Brandy, title “I wanna be down”. I recorded myself on my laptop and used YouTube for the audio.

Lip Sync

For the play by play assignment, I had to be the commentator for at least 4 plays. So I went to youtube and found a series of plays, uploaded to Movavi video editor after downloading via the 4k downloader and failed miserably at being a commentator LOL!

Play by Play

I also responded to 2 TDCs which are here. The first was to tweet a pic of your fav ratty t-shirt  which was fun!  Mine is one of the first ones I ever got from my job of 12 years – not bc I’m so committed but bc the cotton is SOOO soft!

next was my reply to the Area man news LOL!  Thinking of whether or the light is good enough for this video!

Week 9

This was a rough week for me due to some personal situations but as always, these class assignments are always very interesting.  For this TDC, I decided that I’d rather go 100 years in the future.  Why you ask?  To see my children’s children’s children – that would be awesome!!

I got online for Wednesday’s radio show to be able to hear my group’s show – that was awesome!  Some tweets here:

I also reviewed my own show due to not being able to get online for other shows here:

DS106 Radio Show

Two of my assignments involved utilizing Pinterest to which I actually chose b/c I really don’t use it much so I wanted to get some additional practice with creating boards, etc. I chose to create a board about my dream bedroom to include all of my favorite ideas here:

Dream Room

I then completed the assignment to create a board with my dream vacation with is to BORA BORA!!  I belive I’m biased to the name (*cough* Ora Ora *cough) LOL !  Other than that thought, it’s just a GORGEOUS little country with some AMAZING bungalows to stay in and be able to easily capture the beauty of that island!

Bora Bora it is!

DS106 Radio Show

I know the assignment says to post about a radio show that we heard and were not a part of creating but I wasn’t able to get on any other night except for Wednesday to hear mine — so I apologize in advance, I just didn’t want to NOT do anything.  To be honest, it was a real eye (or ear) opener to hear my own radio show, after being apart from the creation of it for a while – it was super exciting to hear!  Also, specific to my part, it was interesting how I worked SOO hard on the edits and upon turning it in, thought that it was almost perfect, but then when I listened to it Wednesday night, I heard sooo much opportunity.  I felt that my music was too loud and I also tried really hard to sound like different characters and felt that could’ve used more work.  Overall though, I’m still super proud of my work and the show sounded great.

Bora Bora it is!

For this assignment, I had to create a pinterest page w/my dream vacation and I have ALWAYS wanted to go to BORA BORA!  The pictures of that place are stunning!  From the bungalows over the ocean to the beautiful sea life, to the breath taking views of nature, it just looks so amazing!  this is definitely a destination that I plan to get to within the next few years!
