The Next Best Movie Critic (Week 10 Summary)
This week in DS106 has been more relaxed than the previous. Everybody, including myself, has finally been settling into our new remote-working lives. That made this week’s video assignments much easier to work on.
To start off the week, I created a Video Essay on one of the iconic scenes from The Shining. Stanley Kubrick’s use of camera angles, color, and noise effectively create an eerie and tense scene. Here is my blog post talking about it.
Land Before Time Spoiled in Under 30 Seconds
For my first of 4 video assignments I did this week, I chose the Spoil A Movie in Under 30 Seconds assignment. This assignment was a lot of fun to make because I loved the movie growing up and it fit the retro 1980s theme great. Here is my blog post talking about it.
Yoda Won’t Eat His Cracker
For my second video assignment this week, I chose to do Ryan Gosling Wont Eat His Cereal assignment. I chose to do this assignment because I think the concept is hilarious. I chose Yoda because it was a scene from the 1980s film Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Here is my blog post talking about it.
For this week’s third video assignment, I chose to do Where Do You Want To Go. I chose this assignment because I love making videos about places I’d love to visit someday. Here is my blog post talking about it.
The Evolution of iMac
For this week’s final video assignment, I chose to do a Product Evolution assignment about Apple’s iconic iMac. I loved doing this assignment because I love Apple products and enjoy making videos about them. Here is my blog post talking about it.
