This week, I decided to explore the undercover agents that were working with The Directorate to expose our agency. The agents ended up being Agent Fawn and Agent Paul Bond. This project was a lot of fun but I spent a lot of time recording and planning the story line. I thought the recordings would be the most valuable to this project because they are really fun and it is cool to add sounds like page flipping or a pen tapping or even eerie background music to just take it to the next level. The video was something that I thought was also a cool touch. I thought what would be sent out to all of the agents to tell them who it was? Well a video would be a good way to describe what happened and who was involved. That is why I chose a video. I think that the project came out cool. If I had infinite time I would take this further with video and maybe put my photoshop skills to use. But I love how this turned out and I am proud of it. It may seem simple but the amount of planning that went into this is probably more then I probably should have done.
Well, there you are. You are a. thinking about taking the class or b. in the class. Well here is your warning that you will get from others, there is a lot of work. Be prepared. When he sends that email at the semester, do not take it lightly. I am in 6 classes, including this, and it is a lot of work on top of my other classes. With that said, I did complete all of my work on time and complete. I would suggest this class if you are looking to experiment with different forms of digital mediums. If you have no experience, well this is your time to learn! I wish you all well in your future endeavors!
First, the mission that I am going to complete is Item 3.
“Several agents were appear to have been interviewed by The Directorate. We have a report that they know who all of our agents are. We know they have a foothold on campus. And we have a report that one of our agents has gone rogue and is secretly working for The Directorate. How shall we approach this situation? What can we do about it?”
My first plan of attack for this Final Mission is to create audio that keeps everyone updated on this mission, so I would say about three or four. Then, I will create an image of some of the research that I have collected. Lastly, I will come up with a video of options to solve this problem!
So far, I have written some the script of the audio. This is roughly what the first audio track will have on it!
“ The story begins with a misplaced file in our office cabinet. This NEVER happens at the agency because it is important that we keep things in order to prevent mishaps within the Agency. This particular cabinet is where we store all of our important files on missions and agents that are only accessible by fingerprints. The fingerprints that are in the system are only those of secret agents in this group. Now, it is up to me to figure out who is a secret spy for The Directorate. The first thing I will do is conduct a series of interviews with all the agents to see if I can get anything out of anyone. I will be asking if they know of anyone who has been compromised and if they respond no…well then, we will do what we have to do.
The sooner we find out who is being all of this the better. Secret missions can and will be exposed, our agents will be under fire from the Agency’s enemies. Something needs to happen and it needs to happen now. Keep following me through this with updates….you will be hearing from me soon.””
Intersting! We finally know what Professor Bonds favorite weapon is, the exploding rats. These rats are perfect for getting in to locked up places and in places a human can not get. What an intersting choice of weapon!
This week we had to do 12 stars of mashup assignments, make a “how to” post, and do 2 remixes. This week was probably the hardest one for me. I think that my creativity is headed down the drain as we near the end of the semester with a 10 page paper and projects hanging over my head. Despite all of that, I think I did pretty good this week. I think that the most fun part was making Talky Tina. That was fun. I also had a hard time relating it to the class theme. I think that that was one of the more challenging parts. I think I only got one of the mashups to be related…shame on me. Anyways, check it all out!
I guess you could say Santa and I like the same holidays. I chose to put Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter all together. I used paint to do this and had to edit the backgrounds out from the turkey and bunny then I had to go into another paint doc and put them all together. Turned out pretty cute.
For my second remix I used an image from the assignment where I was asked to create a Pinterest board of somewhere I want to travel, which I picked Greece. My “Uncle Bob” recently went there to go open up a restaurant and he sent me a picture of him, so I put him in one of the images. Enjoy !
This was hilarious and fun! The first remix I had was to put Fonz from Happy Days in a assignment from previously. I chose to use the assignment from my very first assignment when you take a image from a movie and a quote and put it together. I did Gone With the Wind and Fonz decided to join the party.
Ever since I moved to Virginia, I fell in love with the hockey team, Washington Capitals, and the baseball team, Washington Nationals. I also kept some love for NY when I stick by the Buffalo Bills side. I still have to rep NY in VA. I used the Bills logo, and the two mascots for this mashup. The most fun part of this was to have the mascots ride the bull. I think it was a lot of fun.
