Week Two: Unique Choosing from Assignment Bank!
This week one of the assignments we were given was to choose three assignments from three different categories on the DS106’s Assignment Bank website. The three assignments I chose was “Your Favorite Photo” (1 1/2 stars), “TV Show Gifs” (2 stars), and “Tongue Twister” (3 stars).
For this assignment I chose to create four gifs from one of my favorite TV shows “The Vampire Diaries.” This show aired in 2009 and I was nine years old when I began to watch this show. This show became so popular that the creators created the spin-off “The Originals” which aired in 2013. The spinoff was labeled as one of the most successful spinoffs! The Originals became so popular that the creators created a spinoff off of the spinoff! (Yeah Ik! lol!) The spinoff from The Originals is the show called “Legacies.” Legacies aired in 2018. I have been watching this trilogy since I was nine years old and now I am twenty-one! I really love the plot, the characters, and pretty much everything about The Vampire Diaries. This show started in my childhood and I will always remember the fun times when I used to anticipate the next episode and the next season.
For creating the gif, I decided to take the three main characters from The Vampire Diaries and images from the spinoffs to create a total of four gifs. I decided to use the website makeagif.com because I remembered using this website for my DGST 101 course. I saved three photos of Elena and uploaded them to the website. Then, I adjusted the speed so it would flow better. I repeated this process with every gif. I finally downloaded the gif and Wallaaa!!! #AnimatedGIFAssignments #AnimatedGIFAssignments2158
For this assignment I chose the photo I labeled “Fresh Sparkling Snow.” I took this photo during my junior year of high school for my photojournalism class. I attended Massaponax High School. My teacher was Ms. Marshall and she was one of the sweetest teachers. Marshall created photo of the week. Photo of the week is when Marshall picks the best photo for that week and she displays the photo up in the classroom. The assignment for that week was about an advertisement. I chose the lotion from Bath & Body works that is labeled Fresh Sparkling Snow which is surrounded by snow! #VisualAssignments #VisualAssignments2152
For this assignment I had to say a tongue twister as fast as I could! I also had to include background music. I chose to use a snippet of instrumental music from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbkWDDmV7-M I chose this video because the tongue twister was about seashells and I wanted to pick music that relates to the tongue twister. Seashells come from the beach so I chose instrumental music of beach waves crashing on the shore. #AudioAssignments #AudioAssignments2119
