~~Dan Hubbard~~

This week we had to do a biography of someone not obviously close to us.  I decided to do it on Dan Hubbard who is a business professor at UMW. I’m currently in his Perspectives on Human Organization in Society class and am always interested in what he has to say so he seemed an obvious choice, especially since he is so approachable. I used Vegas Movie Studio to put this video together. I used AVS audio editor to take out the noise in the background of the audio and make it louder.

The only thing I am upset about is that I was very unfamiliar with shooting movies from my phone and thus made the fatal error of recording non-horizontally and therefore making it extremely obvious that a cellphone was used. -_- Oh well, you live and you learn.

“”Red Reaper Appeals to All Audiences””

For this next video assignment, I chose to do the “Signing Words” project worth 5 stars. The Red Reaper has been very gracious today and lent me his assistance. He messed up a little bit but I don’t think it was too bad for a first attempt!

I used the YouTube editor to edit the video clip slightly.

*~*Red Reaper Shenanigans*~*

So for one of my video assignments I did the “Instant Replay” project worth 3.5 stars.

I caught sight of The Red Reaper making his rounds and decided to sneak a video of him! He saw me in the end though…

I used the Vegas Movie Studio software to put the video together.

The song used is Supermassive Black Hole by Muse.

Thanks goes to Alex Dudley for filming!

*&*The Acne Hider*&*

This week for 5 out of the 10 stars worth of video assignments required this week I did the DIY Product Commercial!

I filmed a video of myself raving about the new “Acne Hider” that is super easy to use and completely socially acceptable.

Here it is:

I wish the camera was better on my computer because the quality was pretty bad but I couldn’t use my phone because when I tried to transfer it to my computer the file was too large. Looking back now I probably could have just uploaded the video from my phone but oh well.

 

Like A Bullet Train~*

I know that this website is supposed to be a spooky place but I could’t bring myself to corner my first amv into a creative hole! -_-‘ This project is worth 4.5 stars out of the 8 I need to complete this week. There were a lot of difficult times with this amv but I’m really proud of how it turned out in the end. 🙂 Enjoy!

Greetings Young Reapers

Hello~! My persona for our horror-themed ds106 is HeadReaper. Now I don’t want people to think that I chose the name because I want to reap the heads of small children or anything. I was going more along the lines of I’m the reaper in charge of this website type thing but I suppose you all can interpret what you will. I’m choosing not to share my name on this website and all of my other media platforms so that I can keep things separated but if that becomes a problem for some reason I’ll change things.

Also for those that are not involved in ds106 and somehow found this page on the interwebs… Firstly congratulations you are in a really obscure part of the internet. Digital Storytelling (ds106) is an online course that I am taking at the University of Mary Washington that involves me uploading horror-themed things onto various social medias which will be linked to below.

So in the video below I’ll just be giving a little introduction of myself, I’ve never made a video so hopefully it doesn’t turn out horribly. 😀
