This weeks mashups were ok, I didn’t like the remixes, but everything else was easy. I did three 4 stared assignments making 12 stars all together. The first assignment I did was the superhuman assignment. I took a picture of the Monroe building and I photoshopped superman flying above it. The second assignment I did was the Get some music video mash up which turned out really good and is definitely my favorite thing i’ve done in this class so far. The last assignment I did was of a person looking confused at an easy math problem. I don’t know why I did it, it just popped into my mind.
The tutorial I created was of how to do the person being confused, but of however the next person would want to make it. The first remix I made was an FU remix, I didn’t really like this one, but whatever. It was supposed to be for a parental advisory. The last remix I did was the MJ Zomboy remix. I really didn’t like this one, but I figured something out that didn’t sound like complete trash.
For this remix assignment, I had to remix a Zomboy back once again song to a throwback, and I chose Michael jacksons- Smooth Criminal. I used Logic to mix the audios, and I used mp3juices.cc. I went through a lot of songs that sounded really freaking bad with this zomboy song, and the michael jackson song sounded the least crappy. I then downloaded it to soundcloud.
For my first remix, it was of a parental advisory for a mash up of two different movie clips. I couldn’t download the clip I wanted, so I just made it an audio with a picture of a fuck-unicorn which was pretty fitting of what the audio has to say.
I downloaded both the audios off of mp3juices.cc. I then put the audios one by one into IMovie and cut them down to the parts where I wanted. I then put in the picture and I made it go throughout the whole audio.
For this assignment/tutorial, I did it on the mashup, I’m ready for my close up for 4 and a half stars.
The first thing you have to do is to try and find a close up face, and after that you have to save it to the computer. Go onto photoshop and open that picture, make it a layer by double clicking the “background” picture on the right side bar. Next when you found your face, you need to find your background that’s opposite of what the face is saying or something that makes it funny. Once you find the background, you open that separately onto photoshop and do the same thing by making it a layer.
Use the eraser tool to erase the background of the person’s close up face and then drag the whole tab that has the person in it and make it a window of itself. Once its its own window, drag and drop the face onto the background you chose for it. Make it as big or as little as you would like it to be by selecting the face layer, going under the edit tab, and hitting the free transform button. After that you save the changes and save it onto the desktop.
For this assignment for 4 and a half stars, I created a picture off fo photoshop of a woman looking confused, and a chalkboard behind her stating that 1+1=2. I used the eraser tool on photoshop, so the original orange background is still surrounding it, but oh well.
I had a lot of fun with this one! It took me a while to figure out what video I wanted to use with the song. For the video, I used Get Some by Ghosted, and the song is Good Day by Yellow Claw. Both are great by themselves and now even better together!
For this assignment, I created a mash up using IMovie and downloading the song Good Day I used mp3juices.cc, and for the video, I downloaded it by qdownloader.net. I then uploaded the video to youtube.
I know everybody would love to have a superpower. And if I had one it would be flying! Cause I would love to be able to travel for free honestly. I hate the cold, and I know it would be very cold up in the high sky, but I’ll be bundled up!!
For this assignment for 4 stars, I used photoshop on the UMW computers. I got two pictures off google and put them both on photoshop. I had to erase superman’s background to make it look like he’s flying above the Monroe building.
For this assignment, I created a 30 second documentary of Solenya in his day. I had my friend curtis play him after class ended. First he is looking over his minerals and potion materials, next he’s making sure that the potion he’s about to drink has all the right levels of the ingredients he needs, and finally he injects the water with the potion and transports to a foreign land….right outside jepson. We had a lot of fun with this and we definitely laughed!
I created the movie with the camera on my IPhone, and then I used IMovie again to edit it all together. I used the beginning start up over the actual video again because it’s still my favorite, and the ending credits are just me and curtis. For the audio, I used mp3juices.cc, and I used the song of an hour of spooky music and magical music. I used the music about 34 minutes into the hour long song though.
For this assignment, for 4 and 1/2 stars, I created a story with no dialogue. I thought of it when I was getting out of bed and I was like I really don’t wanna leave to go to class, so I thought, hell, this is going to be my story. I filmed all the way from waking up, to walking to class, while I was in class, when I left class, and I couldn’t film myself back in my bed cause I had to make this, so I pretended the couch in jepson was my destination. When I really thought about it, the couch was the same thing cause i’ve slept on the jepson couch plenty of times.
I filmed with my iPhone again, and used IMovie to edit it all together. Also, I downloaded the song of of mp3juices.cc and put it all the way through the clip. I picked Be Together by Major Lazer because all I wanted to do was be together with my bed!!
So for this assignment 3 1/2 stars, I thought to create a cooking show, and feature Solenya’s favorite dish…..mashed potatoes!!!! I thought of this because My boyfriend Eric and I were going to make dinner, and I thought “What would Solenya want to eat tonight?” and then BAM! Mashed potatoes! Who doesn’t like mashed potatoes?! Solenya sure does!
I used my IPhone to take the video in my friend’s kitchen that we were hanging out in, and then I edited it on IMovie. To download the videos, I uploaded the videos to google drive then I downloaded them onto the apple computer in the HCC.
The title I put in as right on the start of us talking because I don’t like the random black screen saying what it is and then going to the video, so I made it how I liked. The ending credits are the scrolling credits I saw on IMovie. I didn’t add any audio to the video because its all us talking and I didn’t want to take away from our words. I did add an audio to the credits though. I downloaded the song “Watching Cartoons Up In My Room” off of mpsjuices.cc.
