The goal for this assignment was to take the media we posted in the ds106 phonar as rough drafts that weren’t good enough to be the final pieces of assignments. I expected there to be a lot of pictures, which there was, but the small number of other media made it hard to create a story with 2 media types. I ended up using 7 pictures and 2 audio pieces. I created Tom’s first beach trip using pictures that I found, and two audio pieces to help flesh out the car accident they came across. All in all I thought this was a pretty clever and interesting assignment idea and I thought mine turned out pretty well
The goal for this assignment was to take an actor, and show him getting older, as sort of a metamorphosis or transformation (hench the title). I chose Christian Bale for this assignment because I know he has done movies at 3 pretty clear stages of this life, child, twenties, and now mid thirties. The movies I chose were “Newsies” where he is 17, “Metroland” where he is 23, and “Dark Knight Rises” where he is 38. I like the way his face has really clearly aged in each clip. I completed this assignment by downloading the three movie clips from youtube using keepvid.com, then cutting them down in Mpeg Streamclip, and finally putting the clips together in iMovie.
