1)The highlight of this week is my group finishing up our video show Noir Not the Father: The Reunion.  Making this was a blast! Getting together with my group and collaborating in a room is one of my favorite ways to learn. I got to learn how to use a green screen which is an awesome piece of technology.

2)The video interview was interesting and I enjoyed answering the questions. I like to edit videos as well so mixing in the two videos was a blast.

3)Cuyler Matteson is gone and Micheal “Ol Mick” Bretton is here to stay.

4)Me and my group decided to form a agency!

5)Daily creates were interesting and by that I mean the colour one confused the hell out of me.

6)Made all ten comments

Burtis Interviewing Ol Mick

First off my video uploaded to my normal account not the one I use for ds106 so make sure you don’t try to go to my you tube account cause you wont be able to find the video and secondly I used a movie editor app that didn’t tell me until I uploaded that it was going to place a sticker at the bottom of the screen. Besides these two technical difficulties I hope you enjoy my interview.

 

Week 10 Daily Creates

My first daily create  was to create a drawing of Batman. As you can see I am not the most artistic person in the world but I think you can at least tell it is Batman. I uploaded it to flickr and you can see the finished product below.

My 15 second batman

My second daily create I was very confused as you can probably tell. I was supposed to find my most hated colour in my neighborhood. I did not know what the definition of colour was so I looked at the example given by the daily create page and what I came up with is the video below. These lamps are all lamps that are outside my residence hall.

My last daily create for this week I told a story about talking to a stranger. My story is about me helping an elderly lady getting a trash can off of her. Check it out in the link below or read it below that.

One summer day my friend and I were riding bikes around our neighborhood. We heard a distant yell “Can you help me? Help me please!” We looked down the street to see an elderly women with a trash can on top of her from her feet to her waist. We raced over and took it off her then helped her up. She thanked us and told us that we were nice boys.

Noir Not the Father: The Reunion (2nd week progress)

This week my friends from the radio show Noir Not the Father got together to shoot our video show of Noir Not the Father: The Reunion. Making this video was definitely an experience. We got together in the DKC studio and filmed our show in front of a green screen. Honestly I had no idea using a green screen was so easy. It made me think how overpaid some of the film artists are in Hollywood. Although, shooting the show was a mess. I almost fought Billy Steel AGAIN. He just drives me up a wall. Blair gets in the middle of things like she loves to do. Jack was pretty funny on the show. It has been a blast getting wasted with him at BARbarians. After the show we all had to get together and edit it. This took a very long time but i’ll give props to Blair for doing most of the editing work on the main video while the rest of us made commercials and intro’s and such. The video is not completely up yet but it will be soon!

Here are some tweets during shooting.

 

Not A Video Essay

I must apologize for this but I could not get my computer to work for the video essay, it kept freezing and restarted it twice when I tried to download 4k video downloader. so I am going to have to rely on this post for my applying new knowledge video essay.

I watched Kiss me deadly and the scene where Mike beats up the attacker who was trying to kill him. I like this scene because it brings great suspense when the man is following Mike, and when he finally attacks him Mike beats the shit out of him. I also noticed that the more powerful character is on the right, (like from our reading) which is the attacker because he has the upper hand, until Mike starts beating him up then he is on the right because he is more powerful.

This weeks new concept of video was quit a work load.

First on Tuesday I listened to Get A Clue and tweeted along to it. I enjoyed this show a lot and liked how easy it was to pay attention and know what was going on.

Next I posted my final reflection on my radio show. It was a good oppurtunity to look back and think of all the work I put into the radio show and that it paid off!

The second daily create I did this week was a bit confusing because I had no idea how to make a video letter but I found a cool concept of how to make a Star Wars intro letter and I had fun with it.

Again I apologize for this post. I could not figure out the video essay stuff and I waited to long to work on this assignment.

Getting back together with my group was a blast and I can’t wait to get back together next week to film Noir Not the Father: The Reunion.

I have created my character category and you can find the link to it above!

My trailer for groups video show!

 

Week 1 of Noir Not the Father: The Reunion

This week I met with the same group of people that I did my radio show with. We decided to make a video show of the same concept as Noir Not the Father. After discussing for a little bit we decided to make a show about our characters getting back together for a reunion after the epic radio show that Billy Steel confessed to the murder and Jack was the baby daddy. So this video show will be what are characters have been up too since. After we decided this we all started working on our trailers. Check my trailer out below!

 

Final Noir Not the Father Reflection

Listening to Noir Not the Father live on ds106radio was an awesome experience! I enjoyed it because my group put in so much effort and it was nice hearing our finished product. I also liked being on twitter when our show was being aired and seeing everyone’s thoughts on what was going on. There was no bad criticism I saw so that showed me that we did a good job. It was funny seeing tweets about people wondering what was happening because I knew they were going to be stunned at the twists! If I had to make any changes to our shows I would probably spend a little more time putting sound affects into it that sounded like they belong. The other groups I listened to were very good and I would like to get some advice on how they mixed them in so well. I enjoyed meeting and collaborating with a group the best about this project because that makes working a whole lot easier. The hardest thing about this project would be the planning. It took a lot of time getting all of our thoughts together and coming up with a good script. For future ds106ers I would say to not underestimate how much time it takes to make a good show!

If you missed our show listen to it below!

 

Week 9 Daily Creates

My first daily create this week I had to make and record an audio of a poem about how I feel about rain. I did not have a chance the day before to make the poem so I had to do both for this daily create. I recorded directly to sound cloud and it took me about three takes. Check it out!

For my second daily create I had to make a video letter to my future self. I thought about how to convey a letter through video so I thought about how the star wars intro looked like a letter. I couldn’t find an app to make this so I had to look on the internet to find a Star Wars intro maker. After searching a while I found one and created my letter to me!
