In Class we learned how to do supercuts. When Professor started speaking about the concept my mind automatically went to the carlton dance. It’s not a perfect mix as yet but I continue to work on it to make it amazing. I was having issues opening it to a youtube/video file. I think I need to rewatch the tutorial provided by Professor Smith. However the link above does work.
In class we discussed Copyright and the fairuse act. In the TED conversation entitled “laws that choke creativity. Larry Lessig discussed the idea of copyright and how technology influences copyright. In the day and age we live in the internet, camera phones various social media apps makes copyright rules hard to apply. Once an image is up its very easy to screen shot something and make it your own or to remix it . So the question is where is that thin line. For example the harlemshake song that came out in 2013 was huge. The video link had clips from people but also using clips from the peanuts, the simpsons and even a news broadcast. Now the clips from the shows and news were not original for the harlemshake post however someone “remixed” them and added the music. Isnt that a part of copywriting? But technically the actual harlem shake was a danced that originated in Harlem in the late 90’s early 2000. Where is the copyright for that? I also found an interesting article on the Google books finally being Legal. Google book provides free snippets of library books.
So just poking around on the DS 106 assignment bank , i found an assignment I wanted to do. It was pretty much to take a scene from a movie, tv show and how it describes how you currently feel right now.
I found this clip from one of my favorite shows sex and the city. Carrie Bradshaw was asked to walk in a fashion show. She invited her friends, and it had a huge media presence. She manages to fall in front of EVERYONE. So for me Pretty much carrie prefalling is how i feel but between working a full time, part time job, school planning a wedding and trying to buy a house I’m pretty much falling on my face everyday.
However I manage to get back up brush myself off and try it again and look sicking as I do it.
It took some time however I was finally able to get my site up and running. I am quite proud of myself! Come visit me
