It’s done!!! Final Project/ Weekly Summary

So with my final project I used the mediums of photography, writing, video and audio.

The Writing is a poem that I have written about being late.


The video. I acted out the poem as a video and added music to it to create the idea of being late.

The Audio- I used Audiacy to record myself reading the poem. After that I found sound effect on to be able to enhance the poem though the sounds that would be made in the poem it’s self.

The Photography- I took photos and edited them into a slideshow to be able to show them off better.


So to reflect.

This was a fun project to do. At first I wanted to incorporate all the mediums into one video but was advised against it. So I decided that I wanted to tell the same story through all the different mediums. This was a bit of a challenge for me because I see a lot of movement in the poem. The easiest and yet the most time consuming part was the videos. I had to get a take that was just right. I took probably about 40 different videos before I got the ones that I needed.

The Audio wasn’t as bad as I had first thought it would be when as when I was first introduced to it.

The pictures was difficult one and I still don’t think that I incorporated enough, also a little nervous that making them into a slideshow of sorts in a youtube will count as video.

All in all, I really like the experience in making a piece  of writing to come to life in different mediums. At one time I wanted to be a director of movies and a writer. When I went to Shenandoah University for a semester I gave up on the director idea because every one was more into it than I was. I really just wanted to write, but as a writer who sometimes acts out a scene in my living room before writing it down on paper. I really enjoyed seeing one of my piece come to life in multiple different way. It has also made me want to recreate a few more pieces of my work.

Final Project Progress 2

So I have been working on the story/ poem that I have wanted to use for this project. I have narrowed it down to a poems that I have written. There is some language that in the process of making it I will change but as of right now I’m leaving it there for the moment. I’m thinking that I will try to tell this poem as a whole in all the four mediums. I’m going to use writing which is here right now but I’ll put it in a different post next week sometime. I will use photos to tell it by  showing the main parts of the poem. I will use audio by reading the poem and adding sound effects to it. I will use video to create a video of what happens in the poem.

Ba Beep Ba Beeep.

An annoying buzz growing louder each minute.

Sleepy eyes peer into the dark basement room toward the obsessive beeping.

Barely making out the 7:32 before jutting up.


Racing around like the Flash, hoping to make good time.

Pajamas float to the floor like time had stood still,

pants are hopped on while racing to find a t-shirt.

Socks come next then shoes both put on while trying to get to the next place.

First t-shirt that is grabbed gets thrown on.

Throwing books into book bag,

trying to make a sandwich for lunch which ends up being bread with mustard on it

with Turkey, cheese and a pickle just thrown into the same bag to be constructed later.

Running military style with a 20lb book bag to the truck.

“This fucking key never works.”

Trying to unlock a lock that like to stick.


Throwing everything into the front passenger seat.

Hopping into the driver’s seat. Searching for the pill.


Running like a marathon runner back into the house to quickly grab it off the counter.

“Cat get out of the house.”

Is shouted to the oblivious cat who peeks around the door.

Trying to sprint back to the truck with a cat weaving figure eights under foot.

Starts the engine, races like the Duke Brothers down a gravel road wishing it was the General Lee.

Finally on the road.

“It’s not that late.”

Now finally calm from the hectic race against the clock.

“Fuck I forgot to brush my teeth.”

Final Project Progress 1

So for my final project I want to use the four categories of video, audio, visual and writing to complete this project.  I want to take a story or a poem of my own and tell it though different mediums.

I thinking that I’m going to combined all theses into a video of sorts. I will start out with writing scrolling up the screen, then go to some photos that coincide with the story while there will be a sound effects track that will start it then there will be a video with sound effects. There will be a transition with more writing scrolling up the screen and pictures with more of a video afterward.

I think this will be a challenge because there will be a massive amount of editing going into it.

I’m not sure if I would be able to combine it all into a video and still have it remain as the four categories. I also think that I can make it make sense by breaking it up in a way that they all have their separate piece but can be combined to tell one story.

Weekly Summary

Well this week started off good. I had taken my videos by Wednesday. Then I ran into the editing process and realized by the finished the 1st one that it was going to be a pain. But that wasn’t as bad as my computer taking forever to upload everything thing to Youtube. It took about an hour for each video to be uploaded to Youtube and before that about 30 minutes to get the videos to upload and save to movie maker. It’s now 2am and I have to be up for work at 5am. oops. lol


I didn’t get to any daily creates this week. However I did 3 assignments.

Arts and Craft Tutorial

Exercise and Socialize

Daily Routine


I posted a comment on Evan’s Weekly summary.

Weekly Summary – Week 10

I really like all the assignments this week I had a few others that I wanted to try to complete but with all the other things I had to do this week I didn’t have time. Though it was pretty awesome to work with even though I did come along a few mistakes a long the way.

Interesting week look forward to next week.

Daily Routine

This is a  video of my one of my daily routine. Making myself a latte each morning. It is a bit late but that’s because my laptop is old and protesting uploading these videos.

Either way here it is and upon doing this one I had filmed me making my breakfast that morning but that was 15 minutes and so I picked out the part where I made my latte and speed some places up but ended up with about a 5 minute video on making my latte. It’s just the basics on a small machine. Though I know also how to make a latte on a full sized espresso machine too. I just realized that it was only suppose to be 8 seconds. oops. I think it might have been cool to add music too but I didn’t. I also just realized that I forgot to add transitions. I will up load a new video with transitions tomorrow.

Arts and Craft Tutorial

So this was a 3 and half star assignment. I picked this one because the night before all the used sticky notes around my computer that I didn’t need any more became origami swans. So upon looking at the assignments I saw an arts and craft tutorial assignment and I went “Cool, I can make an origami swan tutorial. I recorded the video of me making it first, then recorded narration.  It took some time to edit the narration to the video once I sped the video up in certain spots. Though was still an interesting project to take on.

Exercise and Socialize

I did this assignment because I noticed it as I was getting ready to take my daily walk down my driveway to get my mail. I had enough to complete the 12 stars needed but I also decided that I would go ahead and do this one too. So I took off on my journey down my drive way which as seen in my introduction video is quite long and has quite a few houses on it. I didn’t really get to chat with any neighbors on this walk but I did get to wave at Tom, who was going somewhere on the tractor and I also got to socialize with the neighbors dog Juno. I didn’t make it to the end of my driveway to get the mail this time because I wanted to make sure that Juno wouldn’t go out into the road or wonder off. So I turned back and went back home. Though Juno voiced his opinion on the matter as well. lol

Create Your Dream Room.

My idea of my dream room, is a cozy room with a fireplace and a great mountain view. Some place that would be quite, and has a air of mystery and would hopefully inspire creative dreams to fuel stories that I could write at a later time. I like have a room upstairs with large windows over looking a view of trees. Dark colors, with wood accents. My dream room would have to be a place that inspires creativity and also a place that will allow me to escape reality when the world begins to overwhelm me.

Radio Show Broadcast.

I think everyone had an awesome show.

I listened and commented on the first show on Wednesday. Above are my comments that I made on the show. I thought it was a really interesting show.  There were a few times where I thought there could have been a bit more of background noise or music. I also liked that they have trivia questions and radio bumper.
