Final Post! Hasta La Vista CT 101

Well my fellow bloggers…..Seems as if this interesting journey that has been known as CT 101 has come to an end. However, my new found knowledge of what it truly means to be a digital storyteller will live on.

 

When I first entered this class, I did not know what to expect as far what the class was about. After going over the syllabus and course requirements, I was very pleased because my main interests consists of creating forms of digital media (audio,video,web,etc.) Being a computer savvy person, I felt that this was a great class to take. Also, because I am a CT major, I had no choice either way. I must admit that I was concerned about the freedom we were given as a class. Although it is less stressful, too much freedom can result in laziness and slacking in getting work done. Luckily, The CT 101 weekly check in was created mid semester as reminder to submit blog posts . Otherwise, it would have been difficult to keep up with class activities and submitting my work on time. The best parts of the class were completing digital storytelling projects and creating my own website because I was able to showcase my personality and creative talents to the world. I believe that the objective of this class describes everything that I want to accomplish as a career and shows how internet media plays a huge part in our society. Overall, this class was an awesome experience and I plan to expand with what I have learned through my website. It’s been real!

Here is a visual assignment from ds106 that I have seen a lot of my fellow classmates on the CT101 site take on, “Word Cloud“. The goal was to create a word cloud which contains words that are meaningful to me and best describes my life. I have not used nor heard of the Wordle app prior to doing this assignment but I think it is a cool site.  The process was very simple and quick. This app can be quite useful for me if I were to further explore into web design. Hope you all like my word cloud and get an idea of what matters to me the most!

Let’s Welcome Pandi Cana to social media!

For a ds106 web assignment called “Socialize Your Media”, I decided to make some social media accounts from my FA284 character, Pandi Cana. I introduced this character to the world about two months ago and recently premiered her video (My final project). I’m sure you’re thinking…Why on earth would a bacon loving panda bear with … Continue reading Let’s Welcome Pandi Cana to social media!

I introduced this character to the world about two months ago and recently premiered her video (My final project). I’m sure you’re thinking…Why on earth would a bacon loving panda bear with the body of the kool-aid man be on social media in the first place? Beats me……but just go with it.

In case you didn’t know, I took the CT137 Hacking and Building course this semester, which is a basic requirement for the CT major. The class is based on electronics, circuits, and programming. For the past couple of weeks, the class has been working on final projects. My project is sound reactive LED accessories. A choker necklace and bracelet/hand wear that lights up in reaction to sound. Party goers can wear these to the club or a simple night out  and look super cool. If you would like to witness my journey with the making of this project, check out the post from my CT137 class blog, THE FINAL PROJECT: JOURNEY AND PROCESS(SOUND REACTIVE LED ACCESSORIES) 

After much struggle and troubleshooting, I am very excited to finally have it working. It was long and tough journey but in the end it was all worth it. To those who are CT majors and have yet to take the CT 137 course…..Be ready to WORK! Hope you all like my project.

Ladies and Gentleman, I’d like to present my first cartoon “Pandi Cana”!!! This is the final project for my Computer Graphics class FA284.  The objective of the class projects was to create our own character and an event that is relevant to their life. The character I created was a curious, bacon loving panda bear that has a pitcher of fruit punch (with a straw) as a body. What inspired me to create this character and story? I love panda bears, bacon and fruit punch…Simple as that. Check back on my blog post on the ct101 site for more information about the character. Here is the visual of the first project as a reminder.

The final project required us to make a 15 second video featuring the character and their event using Adobe After Effects. The video reflects what my character’s story is about. The music is a snippet from one of my songs called “The Panda Song”.I must note that version I gave to my professor did not have audio because of time issues.  I am very proud of what I have created as well the work of my fellow classmates. It was a such a great class because I learned how to use super cool editing programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. I will definitely work more in these applications. Hope you all enjoy my cartoon, give feedback and remember…you are what you eat. (At least in my imagination!)
