Goodbye, Digital Storytelling

July 19th, 2012

These past few weeks have been both stressful and fun, but now it’s time for the class to end. Jim Groom was an awesome teacher who was always willing to help us work out our technical issues and give us ideas.

I enjoyed these classes, and learned a lot of new things, and I’ll hold these memories fondly for the rest of my life.

Luckily, my copy of Skyrim is due to arrive today, which should take out some of the emotional sting 🙂

NEMO

July 19th, 2012

For our movie mashup assignment, I decided to splice JAWS and Finding Nemo. Thanks for the idea, Mom! Looks like some other people have already done this idea, though. I didn’t copy, I swear D:

So, in NEMO, a guy and his son get into a fight, and the kid gets angry and turns into a giant homicidal shark. The father then has to search for his son to calm him down and bring him home.

And that description sucked.

One last sound story, this is my attempt at painting a sound picture of a barn early in the morning, when the animals are just beginning to stir and wanting to be let out to graze.

This stemmed from my desire to do something other than yet another sound story, and my like of Billy Idol’s song Mony Mony.

Sound Stories (tech difficulties)

July 16th, 2012

Our assignment was to create a story with no visuals, only sounds.

In my clip, a herd of elk are grazing at night, but are startled by a wolf howling in the distance and think it best to beat feet to somewhere else.

I had no muse for this one, so I’ll have to make up for it with an awesome description. Picture a frozen forest held in the icy grip of a snow dragon. Making her way through a blizzard, she lands, surveying her territory. A quiet growl escapes her, and blue flames streak from her maw, freezing the ground into solid rock.

TDC

July 12th, 2012

Today’s TDC was to take a picture of an outdoor scene free of any human artifacts. It’s funny, I live in a rural area but there are human artifacts nearly everywhere I look, even if it’s just a fence or cornfield.

Meme Chase

July 12th, 2012

Aside from the obvious lines on the dog, I thought this turned out nicely. I still can’t look at the horse with a straight face.

Postcard from Mordor

Okay, I know this is probably beaten to death but frankly I enjoyed this project.
