There were two project ideas that caught my eye. They were: Visual Assignment- Shadow of a Doubt, and I’m ready for my close up (Mashup Assignment). In the visual assignment, you take a photograph of anything that’s casting a shadow, or a picture of shadows. The reason for this is to observe how light and shadow appear in different ways. Here’s a link to the page:
I chose this assignment because it should be fairly easy to complete. The hardest part would be capturing a shadow in the exact light and exactly how you would like it. I should be doing a lot of these in this class, so I can learn to create and post it onto my blog. Learning new skills like this is important in digital storytelling is learning to tell stories simply by creating different pictures that can speak for themselves.
In the I’m Ready for My Closeup assignment (Mashup Assignment), you take a close up of someone’s face, and “superimpose” a scene over it. You have to try to create a story out of it. Here’s a link to the page:
I chose this assignment because I don’t know how to create something like that. This would be such a fun project to do, because you can create any story that you would like. Sometimes I like to create stories based on my mood, scenarios with my friends, or to create something that I think will likely happen. This would be a great opportunity to learn how to create this for my future blog. Learning how to superimpose two things together would cool and maybe even a bit challenging, but I am willing to learn.
