For my last mashup assignment for this week, I edited another one of my old projects. The Snappy assignment, was probably my favorite that I did. Just because of the style I put in it. So for the mashup portion, I decided to take it in the opposite direction, and exchange the snazzy music in the background for some random country or folk music from freemusicarchive.org. I left the slideshow exactly the same, and honestly the result wasn’t bad if not a little off-putting. Check it out and tell me what you think! here’s the original:
and here’s the remixed version:

Honestly this is the worst I’ve done, I just couldn’t figure out how to do better!! This was the hardest assignment, and I put so much time into it. I was having a really hard time coming together with a story that made sense given the setting, and the way their lips were moving. Let’s just say that my normally successful improvisation was not happening in this situation. I did this for assignment number 544, check it out here. If I had to do this again, I think that from the start I would begin with a script of some kind. But the probably is that would take so much time, and so much attention to detail. I’m thinking that if I had to do this again, I would not do this again. Thanks for watching. Please don’t.
Hay, I did this mashup assignment, number 1871. Pretty fun assignment except my Mac started updating in the middle which was super inconvenient because I had to restart. Anyway I just youtubed one liners, for inspiration. Following that I just watched the video and found two lines that jived to me. No real backstory behind it, just being creative. I used iMovie to cut the downloaded, converted mp4 of the youtube video. If I had to do it again I don’t think I would change anything because I think I hit the nail on the head. Check it out!
My son will hate me if he ever finds out I did this hahaha
For my first assignment of the week I did this assignment, which required me to put Talky Tina’s face over another image. After doing research on what in tarnation Talky Tina was, this was a simple assignment. Immediately I started thinking about my son’s favorite show, “Super Why” and how the main character would look much better if he had Talky Tina’s face. So I used faceswaponline.com to put my girl Tina on. Ruining children’s TV shows and taking names, all in a day’s work! Check it out.
Questions never answered:
What the heck happened to Mambo number one through four. Why is there only one Mambo that is popular? What the hell is a Mambo???
This has nothing to do with why I wrote this post, simply a super random side thought. Appreciate me for who I am okay?! Anyway I’m remixing the name of the popular song Mambo number 5 in honor of the theme of this week which is remixing. It’s super random what I chose to do. Did you catch that other not so subtle hint at our course theme? I’m literally a genius. Anyway for my first remix I went back to when I reimagined my character, Kai, in this post. I used that picture, and pasted the face of John Wick onto him. Two amazing superheroes combined in a super mashup! OH so many references to so many themes. I’m on fire. Check it out:
This week was better then the last, I will lead with that. Not having a huge amount of work from this class, let me slow down and focus on each project! That being said I also think that I had more fun with these projects than normal, partially due to the enlistment of my wife’s creativity and hands. We had a good time playing around with the different prompts, and making content. The first assignment this week was a how-to video, on making a peanut butter and apple jelly sandwich. This was a good time and I thought it was a little humorous.
My second task this week I made a video about a day in the life of Malachi Gray. The assignment asked for a mockumentary about a favorite archetype. I think this was by far my favorite piece that I’ve ever made. It was so fun to improv lines with my wife, and get really creative about how to portray Malachi Gray as an archetype.
The third assignment I did this week was for a Q&A assignment. I didn’t have many questions from people in the class, so I ended up supplementing with my wife. Of course I ended up turning the questions into jokes. What do you expect they were hard questions!
Also this week I did two daily creates. Honestly I don’t see the point in these anymore and they’re really just a nuisance. I don’t feel like I’m getting anything out of them, and they are just a piece of busy work I have to remember to complete. The first one I did this week, asked us to go back and remember a memory from the past. I chose this:
I only did one daily create this week, work has been insane and I somehow lost track of my week and all of a sudden it was Thursday. I think that content wise I did a really good job this week. I did new things with making videos and improv and creating new types of content with that video as well as the How-To video. I’m pretty happy overall with my progress. Thanks for checking this out!
My last assignment for the week I did the assignment, “Get to know me” #2230. This assignment asked for me to answer some questions asked by the class. Unfortunately I literally only had questions asked by the wonderful ladies from our radio show group. Such a great group.
Anyway so I only had 3 questions asked by my group members, so I decided to use my wife to fill in the rest of the questions. As with all things that we do together I ended up being goofy and not really answering the question, but it was fun and still showed you something more about who I am!
If I had to do this activity again I wouldn’t do this activity again. I don’t think that I would change anything about how I did it this time. Check it out, I hope you enjoy!
