    Final Project Summary

    For my final project, the story unfolded over four separate posts. They are all linked in the last post, which was an interview with my character. For this project, I created a news cast to start the story, using the video skills I gained this semester. The video is introducing what happened and having the person who was saved appear. Then, I created a radio show, which was talking to a witness. This relied on the audio skills I learned this semester. After these two, the public still didn’t know who had saved Linda. This is when it is revealed in a newspaper article, this was both a writing assignment…

    Bumblefeed Uncovered

    Who is James McArthur? By Bumblefeed Uncovered The nation’s attention has been captured by the story of the rescue of Linda Lamplight in Ridgefield. It was first brought to the public’s attention through a news story.  Then, during a radio show with a witness, someone called in, possibly knowing who the hero was, as they were previously unidentified. Then in a shocking reveal, we found out who the hero is. Her name is James McArthur. The Ridgefield Daily Newspaper broke this story. But today, we have James here with us for an interview. Reporter: Hi there James, how are you? James: I’m good, how are you? Reporter: I’m great. Now…

    Ridgefield’s Daily News

    For the last part of my trilogy of a story, I have written a cover story on my character, James. She has been the talk of the town this week as she (accidentally) saved Linda Lamplight from falling to her death. James prefers to stay under the radar, and never wants anyone to know who she is. She talked about this in her radio show that was done earlier in the semester, where she was in group therapy with other supernatural beings. She does not wish to be a hero, but can never seem to escape it because her companion is always steering her in the direction of impending danger,…

    Ridgefield Radio Show

    For the second part of this story, I created a radio show. Because it’s almost finals week, when I was recording this, I didn’t have anyone available to help me out with a different voice, so I recorded all of the different characters myself. To distinguish between the different people, I changed the pitch of the different audio clips. When I first tried to do this, I had recorded all of it straight into Audacity, but that proved very difficult when I wanted to edit specific sections of the clips. So I started over and recorded them on my computer and then imported the audio to Audacity. I was able…

    News Cast

    The first of my projects for our final project is a newscast. A story is unfolding about my character, James, where she has saved someone from falling off a building, but no one knows it is her yet. This story is going to unfold across multiple mediums, and I’m excited to see it come to life! For this, I created an intro and closing graphic, which goes along with “ireport” music from iMovie. It then cuts to Tammy Toon, the newscaster telling the viewers about what is known is far about the story. Then there is a commercial break, advertising for a tree cage. It seemed seasonally appropriate, and a…

    My Plan for My Final Project

    Whew! What a semester it has been. I have been looking back at everything I have made this year, specifically involving my character, James, to get inspiration for my final project. As a business major, I really struggle with open ended, creative, assignments, so this class, especially this final, has really pushed me out of my comfort zone to learn and try new things. For my final project, I will combine three different types of medias. There will be an “off screen” action, as was common in Greek Dramas, where James will save someone very heroically, and publicly. Usually, when she saves someone, they don’t know who she is. But…

    Weekly Summary-Week 12

    This week was full of mashups and remixes! I actually found this to be one of the hardest weeks, did anyone else? I did a tutorial for a past assignment that I did, that was related to my character. I wanted to specifically choose one of the assignments that I did in the past related to my character, and someone had commented on this one and really liked it, so I wanted to show other’s how I did it. I did 12 stars worth of mashups, including Logo Switch Up, Are You Hungry, and Holiday Mash Up.  I did two remixes, the first one with my little skelly guy, and the second with…

    Daily Creates-Week 12

    This week we had to do two daily creates. The first daily create was to think of a modern day Sadie Hawkins dance. I think I thought of a pretty accurate thing to relate it to! Seems like I may have had someone in disbelief, or maybe just interested themselves. There are some dating apps where the women have to message the men first, it can't happen the other way around, so that feels like a modern day Sadie Hawkins #tdc2498 #ds106 — Richelle Holnick (@RichelleHolnick) November 14, 2018 The other daily create I did was to draw something figurative as literal. This was hard for me because I do…

    Target goes to France

    Anotha one! Here is another remix that I did! This assignment was to translate the words in the assignment to another language. So, “I’m Loving It” became “J’aime ca” which is the French translation of the slogan.   This was the Logo Switch Up [Remixed]: In Another Language assignment.

    Holiday Mashup

    It’s the holidays! If you said that to a person from a lot of other countries, I think they would be like, um, okay, what does that mean? Which holidays? We know that as Christmas/New Years, or maybe adding in Thanksgiving too. So, that makes the perfect inspiration for the Holiday Mash Up assignment. I included Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I was able to do this on Canva. Happy Holidays!   This was the Holiday Mash Up assignment worth 4 and 1/2 stars.
