Weekly Retrospection #12

This week I did two different mashup assignments. I chose to do ones that did not involve video or audio because I really needed a break from those mediums. You can see my first and second assignments here. Here are my TDCS Bisous 🌂

Close Up

For this mashup assignment, I decided to use this close up photo of Nicki Minaj because it’s a good meme. The assignment said to make the photo in the back unrelated, but I couldn’t help but reference Nicki Minaj’s views against the vaccine. I removed the background from Nicki’s photo and added it above the… Continue reading Close Up

Dreamgirls

For this Mashup Activity, I chose to do the sheet music assignment because I thought it was really cool! I chose this image from Dreamgirls because it is a scene from one of the most popular songs, “And I Am Telling You, I’m Not Going” I took the dark blue color from the photo and… Continue reading Dreamgirls

Alt Movie Ending

This assignment called to reimagine a different ending to a movie and whenever I hear “alt ending” or something along those lines, my first thought is a character dying. (Sounds morbid, but think like video games with a “bad ending”!!) I didn’t want to make something super sad, so instead I tried to go for… Continue reading Alt Movie Ending

Crackin’ Up

For my second video assignment, I decided to take a spin on the cheesy educational film assignment, but I took an already made how to video from Howcast and I used Robert Farnon’s Manhattan Boy as my cheesy educational movie because it reminded me of the music that was used in the episode of Spongebob… Continue reading Crackin’ Up
