Time Capsule of Digital Storytelling/ Final Blog

Marty-McFly-Yesterday memes | quickmemeIt seems like yesterday that I was lost looking for room 4M03, now 4 months later, recapping all the lessons that I have learned to do. This class doesn’t feel like a class at all any of the assignment that was given it felt like I was solving a puzzle at the end it looked perfect.

I loved the First blog topic; usually, on the first of class students wonder how the class is going to be, how hard will it be, but blogging about my happiness sort of gave me a hope that hey I will do well in this Class. No worries. (BTW it was about cats, and I love Cats)

I mean who learns to make Gifs in class?

Ummm… I do.

My Profesor is so cool. Its this guy

Ryan Seslow » CUNY TV » City University Television
Everyone says he looks like Amazon’s CEO Jeff but to me, he looks like Tom Ford.

Well this semester I have created Gifs (wait how do you say it gifs or ghifs) and shared my experience of the first impressions of the class via Gifs story all this time I have been only seeing them on social media now I’m a gif creator. (how cool is that?)

In this class, I learned how to create Memes(when I told this to my accounting major friends they got jealous ) and how I don’t consider them as a form of art. THEY ARE STILL NOT!

 

The seen so many creative works in the process of learning how stories are told in digital forms. who would have thought we would have such powerful software like photoshop?  It is the birthplace of Digital Storytelling Possibilities.

 

 

 

How to Shoot and Stitch a Panorama Photo

you don’t need a professional camera to take these kinds of photos. All you need is Profesor Ryan Seslow, he will teach ya’. one thing I noticed about this class is that I don’t need expensive things to create something creative. All I need is a creative mind that is willing. The lesson I got from Panoramic Storytelling.

 

The highlight of this class is my very own website. The Zeitgeist Food, a trendy food recipe website. Creating this website was the biggest achievement in this class, I never thought I would learn how to create after all this time, but hey I did it and I’m proud of it.

My website would have all the recipes of the trendiest food created by everyone(sort of a data archive for food to record the trending list) it is very easy to navigate. as you First enter you would see my latest recipe and if you just want look for a specific item, slide to the “search bar” and put the keyword and you would have your food that You are craving in no time. I also added a calendar because the trending list is time matter having a calendar helps to decide what recipes to do next time. On the top right corner, I have New York’s best place to eat place video or aka “Must Try Video”.

I also added a menu (it’s not a food menu, lol you can’t order food from it LOL ) for easier and faster access to other food and me.

The struggle is real - Señor GIF - Funny gifsAs easy as I made the website to access it wasn’t as easy to create. The struggle I had with creating this website was it wasn’t opening as a WordPress domain it was still showing the reclaiming website where it was purchased from.

 

 

I Want To Help GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHYThe second issue was the theme wasn’t showing or when I changed it there wasn’t any change after almost giving up I restarted my computer and it worked smoothly as butter. I didn’t have any other complications in successfully creating this website.
In the near future, there will be more recipes for continuing the popularity of this website.

 

The GiftionarySince the whole world is in a PAUSE our lives are still going on we are living. living among the scariest times. I’m so glad and thankful that I’m alive and healthy and I finished through this semester, but Corona Virus is ruining 2020. Corona has changed my life completely. I don’t think we could ever go back to being normal ever again. This is our way of life now and I accept it.

Help Me Out Here Mission Impossible GIF - Find & Share on GIPHYTo me asking me what grade am I getting always had put me in a tough position because every time I say I did well and I’m going to get a good grade something quite opposite happens. So my dear peers and professor I’m not going to say what grade I expect for this class. And even if I get a low grade I would be as bothered because of the amount of context I learned from this class. This class made me feel calm while doing a blog where other times I overstress and end up messing everything up. Based on what I’m learned will show in my work.

Thank you, Professor, for a wonderful semester, it has been a journey, I just wished we had this class in college instead of like this.

Thank you everyone for taking your time and reading my silly blogs.

Corona Virus Ruins 2020

The Corona Virus, a virus that has taken so many lives by now and so many are holding on straws to live another day. It seriously changed everyone’s life. I mean I didn’t have a clue how dangerous this virus got until I heard about the first case in New York. 

TBH I was taking it as a joke of people wearing these masks and decided to make a meme. At the time I laughed when I saw the shape of today’s mask. It has a very close resemblance to the mask worn by the doctors during the Black Plague in the 14th century, which we still don’t have a cure to. 

In the second week of the lockdown, my parents received a phone call, saying one of my relatives has passed away due to COVID-19.  And after that, I lost all my balance, started to panic what’s going to happen. I stopped stepping out of the house. All my family members being home together was an exciting thing since we are all busy with our own things but being home like this was making everyone depressed.

I never liked taking online courses. So far throughout my 4 years of college I have taken only 2 only courses and I did poorly that I would do in a classroom. I just hate the fact that I being forced to take all my CT classes online. I just want it to be over.

It feels like I’m forced to watch this movie online but instead of watching it I skip through the whole movie; same way I’m forced to live this life and I want to skip through it but I can’t.  I can’t skip through living my life. I’m Very much frustrated. I don’t feel any motivation for doing any work even when I have all the time in the world. I don’t know how the college planning to continue to teach students like this but I hope we are going to make it somehow to the end of the semester.

Since memes and GIFs and blogs are a symbol of happiness to me but this COVID-19 is the opposite of my happiness. I wouldn’t be using any on this blog due to my current mental health state.

Please, I Would like a moment of silence for all the victims, survivors, and their families.

Thank You

Panoramic Storytelling

This feature has been available since the iPhone 5 yet so very little amount of people knows about it. The Panorama option, that lets you take horizontally or vertically elongated field of view photos, basically wide-view photos. the first time I remember taking a panoramic photo, it was at my sister’s birthday and we were trying to take every’s photo in one shot. So it, not my first time taking a panoramic kind of photo.

For the class, we had to show a story in a picture without using any words and as you can see we have a boy and a girl meet for the first time, then them in their dating phase and at the end of them being separated.

Since I knew how to create panoramic photos I took a photo of a friend doing his regular exercise back in  2019.

but hey, Prof. Ryan’s voice calmed me done. before he dropped the bomb of him being deaf took the ground below my feet. As I was listening to him speaking, I was thinking, he has such a nice voice, so soothing and calming, he could be an amazing TV news reporter, where even he says something scary I would feel like there is nothing to worry about.Normal Spongebob GIF by SpongeBob SquarePants - Find & Share on GIPHY He thinks that his lectures bore us to sleep but nooooo…. it’s his voice that makes us sleepy, TBH I never heard such a soft voice.Tired Sleep GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Digital Storytelling Possibilities

Two Types of Transport

These arts inspired me because they have a story in them, they show us the destruction created by the earthquake of 1906 and the present-day San Francisco. Back in 1906 taking a Photograph wasn’t as easy as pulling Your phone out and pressing the shutter button for a colorful picture instead the cameras were bulky and required films to take pictures, which was only limited to black and white along with lacking in contrast and had a lot of noise, it didn’t have any digital image stabilizer so shakiness was a plus. And in order for me to create images like this I would need to learn how to use Adobe’s Photoshop and lightroom. Adobe has created a platform that opens a new world of possibilities with its countless features. As much as I would like to learn to use all of them I want to become a pro at Photoshopping. I want to learn how to layer an image and how to fill the gaps or differences in the photos, how to balance out the lighting, and to blend. 

My Younger sister who goes to high school right now knows how to use photoshop and since she knows how to utilize it. I asked to repair a damaged birthday photo of mine when I was 4. She fixed it right away, but she replaced her face with mine and made a joke out of it. LOL, I was mad at her for pulling the prank at me but I was surprised with the change she was able to bring. 

 

Forrest Gump Meeting JFK

With the photo of Tom Hanks meeting the president. John F. Kenndy was totally photoshopped for the movie Forrest Gump. At the time Tom Hanks was only a “school-aged child” when Kenndy was president. The technology in 1994 had the ability to put Tom Hanks in the same room as President Kennedy. This talent puts the viewers in the timeline of believing that it actually happened. 

In this digital world and time, everyone knows and says “it’s Photoshopped” because it is, it has the power of making digital images perfect whether it is to show a model’s body or to advertise vegetables. And as a Communication Technology major student it is essential for me to learn how to utilize it to the max for building up my ability to create digital storytelling skills. It has the flexibility of creating anything art and it makes creating art limitless.
