week twelve

This week was a lot easier than the past two weeks, which I’m super thankful for. I’ll start by talking about my mashups!

So for the first mashup, I combined an audio I created weeks ago and added video clips to it to make a sort of music video/video aesthetic. The audio is the sound of rain with piano, meant to be relaxing. It’s the type of audio I would listen to while reading or writing, or even studying. I really like all the clips I put together and the overall general aesthetic of the video I wanted was to create was a rainy autumn day. 

The second mashup I created was an 80s Movie Scene. I used the ending scene from The Breakfast Club and the boombox scene from Say Anything. I edited it using PicsArt from my phone and then emailed it to myself. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, I think both the pictures fit well together! 

I also did an Emoji Mashup, in which I took a picture of my sister imitating her favorite emoji. This assignment was rated 4 stars in the course but I felt it was really worth only two, so I ended up doing the video/audio mashup afterward since I felt the Emoji mashup and 80s scene mash-up weren’t really worth the 8 stars we were supposed to aim for this week!

I had a lot of fun with the remixes, mainly because they were design projects and I got to use my favorite website ever (Canva). 

For the first remix I used my body dysmorphia poster and added a Dr. Suess character to it. I chose the grinch! I really like how it still uses the mirror, but it’s a completely different story and even disorder. I’m not sure exactly what disorder the Grinch could have, or what to call it, but I can kind of picture a personality disorder. The message I wanted to get across was that the Grinch is fighting with what he sees in the mirror (a mean old grinch) and what he can become (and does, eventually, in the movie), which is someone who actually cares! I liked the speech bubble I added too, I think that was a nice touch to really get the message across. 

The second remix I did was remixing an art poetry design. Originally, it was one of my favorite poems with a design element with it. The new challenge was to turn it into something that your parents wouldn’t want to see! And anything with alcohol or drugs my parents definitely wouldn’t want to look at. I chose a quote (instead of a poem) for the new design but kept some of the color schemes from the original design and added new minimalistic elements. 

Finally, here are my daily creates…

I got the inspiration for the first daily create due to my 21st birthday that is coming up this Monday. The second one was pretty easy to do, I think I created a similar one a week or two ago. Once again I went with the minimalistic design! And the minute I read the prompt for the third one, I immediately thought of my family!
