For my digital story project this week, I took on the movie mash up assignment from the ds106 assignment bank. The assignment is to make a movie cover that is a mash up of two different movies. I picked the lifetime movie “Cyberbully” and “Mean Girls”, one of the greatest movies of all time. I used the application “Paint” to do this assignment. I think I could have done a better job editing wise but overall I thought the concept of my project was very interesting. If you think about it, the two movies that I picked basically share the same objective which is the struggle of acceptance, peer pressure and getting bullied in high School. Mean Girls, the movie most of us all know and love, shows this concept in a more comedic manner. However, I believe “Cyber bully” shows the concept more realistically, especially when it comes to the outcomes of bullying. Therefore, I found it very coincidental to bring these two movies together into one movie cover.
Hope you guys agree and let me know what you think of the cover!
