Ok, I had a lot of fun doing this project. I have a samsung note pro Tablet. I downloaded 2 applications from the playstore. I downloaded video cutter, and a Video to GIF converter. I also used www.clipconverter.cc to download any videos from off of Youtube.. I already had some movies on my Tablet. My first GIF is a clip from the classic movie “Strictly Business” . Since I had this movie on my tablet already I just had to use the video cutter, to cut out the part I wanted to use as my GIF then save it. Next I uploaded it to the Video to GIF converter to then transfer the clip into an actual GIF. This reaction would be used in a textual situation as such :
Sarah: OMG you won’t believe what I heard, Ashley is trying to get you fired. She wants the promotion that your being considered for!
Becky: I can’t believe this!
Sarah: What are you going to do?
Sarah: OMG lol how about you try talking instead.
In my next Gif I created it from a scene I cut from a movie called “This Christmas” I got from youtube.I had to download the video from youtube using clip converter, then use video cutter to pick my scene, then video to Gif converter to make it a Gif. I would use this Gif as such
Becky: I found emails in Ronnie phone from another woman
Becky: You took the words right out of my mouth! LOL
I thought about making a very unusual but simple GIF. Three’s Company happens to be one of my favorite sitcoms. Even though it’s quite an old show, it’s way older than me, I never get tired of watching numerous episodes of it. Since I’ve never seen a GIF with Three’s Company, I thought creating a GIF with the three room mates would be quite amusing for me. In the show Three’s Company, it entails three room mates who all live together platonic, and they share an apartment in Santa Monica California. Their apartment building is owned by their hard-nosed landlord, Stanley Roper and his love-starved wife, Helen Roper.
In the GIF, it shows the three room mates, Chrissy Snow, Jack Tripper and Janet Wood hanging out in their living-room couch where a lot of their home time is spent chatting and teasing each other. The room mates have a fun and interesting living arrangement, and at times the drama among them get out of hand. Most of the time they struggle to get their rent money together for Mr. Roper each month. The three room mates also love to hang out at their favorite neighborhood pub The Regal Beagle.
The GIF with the room mates from Three’s Company can be used to show how ridiculous they can be at times and also how much fun they all have together hanging out in their living room.
This semester is going to be filled with excitement! For my CT class, there are plenty of assignments that I am interested in. Today I am completing a blog for my 2nd week reflection. I would like to complete all- if not, most of my assignments for this class. Such as, Blogging, DS106 assignments, Photoshop, commenting, our Weekly Reflection and more. But for now I want to keep up with each assignment that is given weekly. Two assignments I am really looking forward to completing are Digital story telling and event organizer, because I can create anything that comes to my mind. For example, if I wanted to create a digital story about what I do when I first wake up, all you will hear are sounds of waking up, getting out of bed, brushing my teeth, taking a shower and dashing out the door to get to school on time for CT101! I can also create and host my own event(s) online and invite others to join! I think these two are linked perfectly because, they are great ways to create and share my very own media ideas through image, sound and video. The reason I chose these assignments is for its audio and video presentations.
My opinion as to why we are allowed to choose our assignments is for us to experiment and enhance our knowledge on networking. I actually like that idea because I can basically post anything that inspires me and hear others opinion and critiques. You normally don’t find that in regular classes such as Eng126 and Stat111. There are tons of media open to us all and we can either build our own or enhance some else’s. The main thing is we have a choice, that no where else will offer.
I don’t really have a specific time for completing my assignments however, I don’t want to rush it. I haven’t yet considered that I may not receive full points for each assignment but, I believe the more I get into them and put more time and effort into completing them, I will progress better and better each time.
Here is a GIF I found online but I am going to definitely learn how create my own. So thumbs up!
