Tutorial on photo editing!

April 30th, 2012 · Comments Off on Tutorial on photo editing!

where that guy come from lol

Who knew President Lincoln knew captain hook! ? I used paint and Gimp to create this image. I started with gimp and cut out captain hook. Then I pasted captain hook into this vintage picture with President Lincoln. Next I changed the color so that the color tone matched throughout the picture. Finally I moved it to paint to save it and get it to Flickr. I haven’t figured out how to save pictures in Gimp.  I love this picture because nothing seems off at first! Captain hook blends right in. and then you notice it!

My thoughts on ds106

April 30th, 2012 · Comments Off on My thoughts on ds106

In class we were asked to write a short paper on our thoughts about this class! I thought it was a fun class and very informative! I thought that alan L ( our teacher) was very helpful and knowlageable. He really made it fun! The only bad thing about the class was the amount of work and little heads up about the work! I felt like the class was targeted for students that arent full time! Sometimes I felt the amount of work assigned was strait up impossible and it stressed me out so much! I feel like 4 credit labs are less demanding! I couldnt do all my other class work and ds106 work and it is a 3 credit gen ed! so stressfull! But other than that I learned so much! I think I would have learned more though if we had fewer assignments and could put all our efforts into a few projects instead of ruching a ton of projects! Over all a great class I really apprecitate all the help that Alan L gave me! he is great at explaning the internet and all things blogging so thanks!

My final project tutorial

April 30th, 2012 · Comments Off on My final project tutorial

For my final project I decided to do a horror short! I was kinda inspired by the blair with project! To begin I enlisted the aid of my brother andy! We went hiking on these random trails behind his place in charrlettsville! I had never been out that way before and had no idea wht to expect! so we started hiking and found all these creepy things! you’ll see! we made up script as we went and video taped everything in 3 to 4 minute segments! Its easyer that way to email the video from my phone to my computer! once I managed to email all the videos to my computer that process alone took a week! then I started editing in AVS video editor! I picked out the creepyest moments and strated putting together the story! My story is that my brother and I find out about treasure from the older people in our town! we go looking for this treasure! when it all goes wrong! we go though this tunnle with creepy graffite and some evil spirit begins to follow us! we come across this crazy statue! It is completly faceless I think it might be a statue of the grim reaper looking back! Finally we come across this house where it looks as if someone has been living! Andy sees something and you never see us again! all you see is a creepy figure walking after us. After I edited all the video to fit the story that i made up. the next step was to add background music and special effects! I choose background music I liked the begining song is tounge tied by group love! great song! I choose it for the begining song because it is upbeat! after the tunnle when things go wrong I choose parts of the song by M8P soon my friend.  I used the first section of the song on repeat becasue I really liked the music. Then I added effects to the film! I used the polarized effects thoughout the second half of the movie to try and amp up the creepyness! FInally I tuned the color to be more contrasted and darker! I hope this tutorial will help and enjoy the short! 🙂

Another remix!

April 16th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I hope you get a laugh!

I did this for the remix assignment of do the opposite of an assignment! the assignment was to add words to a picture to add meaning! I added words completly without meaning! I did this though the new photo editor on flicker! I just added words! 🙂 But I would like to give some background to this picture! I found this picture in the creative commons on flicker! It is a photo by willfrey fox. I can not stand the  fake suited charectors! they really creep me out! I thought this was the perfect picture to use for this remix because I feel like those charecter suits could never make any sense they are so creepy!

My first remix assignment!

April 11th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Spoiler Alert!

And…… The remix!
movie poster for remix

for this remix I used a design assignment from “If movie posters told the truth” and added a few extra things I canged 4 big things! I used gimp to edit this and to change the color of the background. I used a very interesting lighting effect where you can manually adjest where light hit the picture. I colored her watch red because I felt like It could use color and his shoe pink! I also aded green to the background though a confeti stamp! I used the confetie stamp on his jacket as well! I thought this would be a good assignment becasue the design assignments were my favorites and I think it is very funny to change thing in pictures randomly. This was a 2 star assignment and took about 15 minutes enjoy! 🙂

I made a new video assignment

April 7th, 2012 · Comments Off on I made a new video assignment

This is a video assignment for my new made video assignment. I made a video assignment called make a tutorial. This is a basic horsebackriding tutorial. A few weeks ago I took my horse tag out and my dad helped video recorded me riding. Its very weird to watch myself riding lol I can pick out everything I do wrong! Anyway… I took the SD card from my dads camera and put all the videos on my copmuter. I used AVS to edit them. THe video begins with walking and lots of turning . I had to edit out alot of footage for times sake. THe trotting the jumping a small cross rail. I skiped cantering because Tag hasnt been so good lately at the canter. He threw me the a little before I did this video. lol He is out of shape and cant hold himself up at the canter very well its frustrating but since gotten much better! He is a forward horse and loves to run a jump. I added a song ” too close” by Alex Clare in the background and narrorated the video myself. I did this all useing AVS! It has taken me a while but another work done! more to come lol I have lots of works in progress at the moment!!! ENJOY

By the way its takes quite a bit so i definitally think it should be a 5 star
