Video Assignments: Character/Genre Song Mashup- 3 stars

Find a theme from TV and/or movies (e.g. mosnters, cowboys, romance, planes, beaches) and edit a video sequence with a song track from a poop song that matches it. The more short cuts the better!


I chose the theme Love for my genre song Mashup. I thought this would be a cute montage. I found clips of people kissing and that seemed really “in love” (haha) and imported them into windows movie maker. I cut and trimmed them and linked the different scenes together. I used the song “First day of my life”, by Bright Eyes. I think that the music really meshes well with the video clips I used.



Visual Assignments: Color Splash- 3 stars

This is an old ad that I used Color Splash on!



Color splash is a technique to emphasize details- you remove all color from a photo, and then restore original color to a single object, e.g. a green apple on a table. Think of the Girl in the red dress from Schindler’s List.



Visual Assignment: Cat Breading- 1 star


“The latest bizarre trend blowing up Facebook mini-feeds everywhere? Cat Breading. (Think LOLcats, but with a trippy twist—each adorable kitten has been adorned with a slice of bread, which encases their little feline face.)”



This is post-breaded Oliver, he doesn’t seem to mind being breaded.


Visual Assignment: Putting Disney into Focus- 2 stars

Put a famous object from any Disney movie into focus. Blur everything around it, make the color pop out, BE CREATIVE! In your blog post, explain why you picked that object to focus on.

This rose is supposed to symbolize the enchanted rose in the Disney movie, ” The Beauty and the Beast.” I took a picture of a large rose I have, changed the color from pink to red and blurred the surrounding areas.
