It has been very crazy with finals and everything going on. I have finally finished my final project and I have to say, I’m pretty proud of it. I wouldn’t consider myself the most creative person in the world but I really thought about this one. The prompt was saying that the Canadians are up to something and basically you have to run with it from there, and I did! I decided that the Canadians were pairing up with the Russians to make a freeze ray so they can freeze the world and make the entire world have a climate similar to that of Canada and Russia. The media I used is audio, video, and photography. For the audio, I did 2 things. The first one is a radio show is playing and a spy from Russia and a spy from Canada use the radio to communicate with each other. They think that no one listens to that radio frequency that’s why they did it. Well, it turns out they were caught. The second audio thing I did was a news show on the whole event. I recorded it using soundcloud. For the video, I made a video of me pretending to save the world from the freeze ray. In he video, I had to find 3 items that were going to be used to make the freeze ray and I had to find them before the Russians and Canadians got them and shipped them back to their lab to be made into the freeze ray. I had to find a laser source (which was found inside a keychain pig), a power source (which was found in a rare crystal), and a freeze source (which was found in magical never melting ice cubes). I had to go on quite the adventure to make this video but it was really fun and I really enjoyed doing it. I made it using iMovie and I incorporated time lapse and regular video. For the photography, I took pictures of the items (laser source, power source, and freeze source) and I kind of blacked them out. I did this to make it mysterious and so that you don’t really know what it is but once you find that item you can match it up with the blacked out picture and see that it is the real deal and it is what you were looking for. I did this using and app, by changing the filter to make it black and white and using a dropper and tones tool to black it out. I have imbedded all the parts from my story in this post.
I have brainstormed a little on what I want to do for my final project. I am going to use the prompt that has to do with the Canadians. I have written out a few scripts to use for my production. I plan on using audio, photography, and video. More to come next week!
