Digital Storytelling

Week IDK, It’s All Running Together

The assignments this week were fun. Once I had the idea, I enjoyed altering the web page. The Google scribbles thing was fun, if probably dangerous (we really need to stop teaching computers things). I had waaaaay more fun with using GIFs to tell a story than I thought I would. Majestic land orca on…

Guess the Story

         

Dream bedroom

My Dream Bedroom I wish everything would embed the way Twitter and Instagram do. I grew up a military brat. We moved a lot, I always had my own room, but not one I could decorate or anything. And now…now I have a husband and cats, and I’m not sure who is more difficult to…

Teaching our robot overlords art

I made these six doodles. A neural network guessed five of them correctly. https://t.co/Sx3ws4lJ9G — Jess (@fatolliecat) October 26, 2018 It was the FACE that stumped it. I figured it would be the flying saucer, but nope. A smiley face. I suppose trouble with facial recognition is actually a desirable trait in a future robot…

Majestic land orca on Wikipedia

This was inspired in part by alternate names for animals (snake = danger noodle), and also by my husband recently nicknaming one of our cats ‘majestic land orca’. Cecil does bear a strong resemblance to a panda, in coloring, body type, and behavior. Also the question ‘Who the hell passed up the chance to name…

Halfway There

Semester is halfway done!  This was a busy, short week between making the show and all my other classes. I’m not often (if ever) creative in a group setting, so this was a new experience. It went really well, which was great. It could have gone horribly, which it didn’t. I continue to be ridiculously…

Stop me if you’ve heard this one…

I continue my attempts as minimalism. As another professor stressed yesterday, less is more. Whitespace is your friend. I think she mentioned it being soothing? Anyways, I wanted something simple and to the point, and I thought of the movie in four icons assignment. And then, as I was wondering where to go from there,…

Radio Show Week 2

It’s DONE! Yay! I had a fun time doing the show. It was nice interacting with the group, and developing our characters. Script writing was a bit like pulling teeth, but I get that. A lot of things really came together kinda late in the game as we were writing (the premise of the group,…

Week 7(?)

Preeeeetty sure this is week 7. Anyways, we got put together in groups. I like the challenge of random chance. I play mystery heroes almost exclusively in Overwatch. Makes you stretch the proverbial muscles. We have an idea (I think it’s really great), we’ll right the script over the next few days, and we’ll record…

I Am Legend

I am in full blown migraine mode here. I hate existence right now. But it weirdly gave me an idea. Or reminded me of an idea that I had earlier. So, I wrote a post about personal legends. Stories people tell about us, the stories our family and friends all know. The things people use…
