Final Mission

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.

Final Project Plans

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.””

Mascot Mash-Up

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.

Movie Mash-up

This was lots and lots of fun! I had to pick two movies that were similar and create one mashup poster. I thought that the perfect two movies would be Cop Out and The Other Guys. This was the perfect combo in my head because they were both movies that had to do with buddies that were cops that get along at the end and make everything work out. I think that it was hard to play with perspective but I wanted to make sure that it said “Cop Out Guys” and I think I achieved that well.

How to: Create a Movie Mash-Up

  1. First thing is first. You need to decide what movies are similar enough or have been compared to. For example the movies that I chose were Cop Out and Other Guys. They are both movies that are about cop buddies working together. Use this link to help you if you need it!
  2. Next, pick two images, if I was you I would pick movie posters. Here are mine. 
  3. The next step is to open up paint. I know that all of us are not rich enough for some of the more high applications. I promise paint is not like it use to be and has a lot of helpful tools. You need to decide how you are going to mash the movies. I am going to take the word “Guys” and put that on the “Cop Out” poster so it will read “Cop Out Guys”. I am also going to put Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in the image too.
  4. Now, duplicate the poster a few times to be able to use it over and over. First I will upload the Other Guys Poster delete everything that I do no want. So I will get rid of the clouds, the names of the actors and also “The Other”.  It should look like that on the left with all the layers. Save that as a .jpeg. This step will take a little while. 
  5. After that, you want to open up the other movie poster on a separate paint document. Then also open up the other movie poster. Play around with it and adjust the images together however you want. Mine took some time to play around with to get it how I wanted it!
  6. Lastly, save this project as a .jpeg and upload it to your blog. Don’t forget to tag this assignment!

007 – Talky Tina

Since I could not relate this particular assignment to my secret agent so I dedicated this one to our theme. The project was to get a picture of Talky Tina’s head, which required a lot of editing. Talky Tina, for those of you that do not know, it a talking doll from Twilight Zone. She is a creepy doll that talks, keeps coming back after being thrown out of the house and disposed of far far away. It is actually a comical episode. Well, here is my image of Talking Tina, 007 style.
