That’s a Wrap on Week 6!!!

We had another light week this week in terms of assignments and work we needed to get done. I did my first daily create of the week on Sunday and it required us to create a two line poem about what nature teaches us. This daily create was a little quicker than normal since it was only two lines, however, it was interesting to see what I could come up with and you can read it here. My second and final daily create for the week was done on Monday and for this one we had to find a movie, associate it with a picture, and mess with the title and flip the words and letters around. As you can read here, I chose to do Harry Potter for this one as it is one of my all time favorite movie franchises. This week was a little more interesting because we were allowed to have more input on the work we were doing to finish out assignments for the week. By that I mean, we had a choice of either creating a video while talking to Dr. Oblivion or creating three blog posts about three different video assignments from the assignment bank. For this week, I chose to do the three different assignment from the assignment bank. It is also important to note that for these assignments we were required to make sure that at least two of the assignments were related to our course character in some way. The first assignment that I chose to do was called “What do you do?” and this assignment wanted us to create a short, 8-second video that shows something that we do on a daily basis. I created a blog post about what I chose to do here. For that assignment, I decided to keep it simple and just record myself walking back from class and lifts. As you will read in the post, the video was taken near Eagle Village right near the bridge that connects the village to the rest of campus. My second assignment I chose to do this week was to create a TikTok of your pet, and I had to relate this assignment back to my course character in some way. So, I decided to take my dog, Belle, and claim that it was also Xander’s dog and gave the two a little backstory and talked about how they grew up together and have such a strong bond. That post is located here. The final assignment I chose to do this week was to do a GRWM, or Get Ready With Me! This GRWM follows Xander has he gets ready for the day and the day that I chose to do is very important. This is the day that he is making a public announcement about what his former company, Aggressive Technologies did to him. You can find that post here. The final thing we needed to do this week was create a backstory with our character and the company, Aggressive Technologies, which is why the GRWM assignment is so closely tied with the company. Xander has a dark story with the company, from brilliant mind within the company, to be being publicly humiliated and ridiculed, Xander’s made it his mission to get back at what Aggressive Technologies did to him. That post is located here.

I did not encounter too many issues this week when completing my assignments. I thought things went pretty smoothly this week and I enjoyed doing all of the assignments. From this week, I would say that creating the backstory between our course character and Aggressive Technologies was my favorite. This is because I found it very interesting how I could create even more about my character’s life and the directions that I could have gone in were endless. I enjoyed taking the time and trying to figure out where I wanted to go with my character and found it soothing. I had an issue last week with learning how to work with OpenShot video editor, but this week the process was a lot smoother and definitely helped speed up the process of creating and exporting the videos for the assignments that I completed this week.

I definitely think that I accomplished all of the requirements for the assignments for this week and I think I did them to the best of my ability. My favorite assignment was the creating of the backstory for Xander and his former company. I would not do anything differently for the work that I did this week as it was completed with effort, time, and creativeness. I believe that there are no larger issues at hand with my work. I do not have any further questions at this time for the class. Last week I said I wanted to get better at working with OpenShot Video Editor, and so far, that goal is being accomplished because I had to use it for one of my assignments this week and the process was a lot smoother. Till next week!
