Week Fourteen: Distress Signal News!

We had way too much fun with the final project. Alaina, Jordan and I immediately wrote our articles and filmed interviews after making an outline for the project. We created and customized a Tumblr page that provides background info and

Inspired by the “Save Yourself” prompt where our heroes lose their powers, Alaina, Jordan and I have teamed up to revisit the plot and characters in our radio show, Distress Signal. Only for this project, we’ll create a news series that

Week Twelve: Mashed Up

This week, we revisited concepts covered in the past, but whatever direction we took was up to us. The mashup/remix assignments were interesting because anything was fair game. I started with editing the Dunkin’ Donuts logo to better represent the only thing I

Week Two: College Course or Fun House?

This week, I fell in love with the Assignment Bank. There are endless opportunities to make something unique. The three assignments I tackled were from the visual, audio and animated gif categories. My work not only reflected my interests, but encouraged me to use my experience with certain
