Mara Brock Akil

Mara Brock Akil is a beautiful, intelligent black woman. She is very inspiring to me because she is the woman I want to become when I get older. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from The Medill School of Journalism. She started off as a staff writer for the UPN show ‘Moesha‘ and then worked as a supervising producer for ‘The Jamie Foxx Show.’

Her first scripted show was ‘Girlfriends‘ which lasted eight seasons, then she created the spin off show “The Game.’ Her first screenplay was ‘Sparkle,’ which starred the late Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks. Her latest show she has created is ‘Being Mary Jane,’ starring Gabrielle Union. The second season will be premiering in January 2015 on BET.

I love to write and one day I wanted to write my own scripted series, similar to Being Mary Jane. All the shows Akil has created were very good and have had high ratings. She motivates me because she is the example of a successful black woman; something I am dying to be.

I chose this picture of Mara Brock Akil because she looks beautiful. Her brown skin looks flawless and her hair looks silky and full. She reminds me a lot of me in this photo; an older version. I already have the pretty brown skin with full, dark hair.

At first when I first signed up for my domain name and I was able to post things, I thought I’m only restricted to post things related to the course, for example posts related to the “Weekly Reflection”, or  the”Assignment Tab”, but after reading the students reviews, I figured that I can actually post things that I have created and checked by the assessment hand-out that we received in class.

I believe that the least helpful information that previous students provided was the constructed experiment point, where they are talking about this green screen that seems confusing to me, so I made a comment at the website hoping someone would actually reply back :D lol..

To be honest this course has been very confusing since the start, just because it is not an usual course that goes by following the book, it is more of how creative you are, which makes it more interesting. Maybe I’m concerned with my grade eventually, but it was an interesting class over all.

In this class for the first time I learned how to do GIF images, I learned how to kind of get a better idea of the Adobe Photoshop, as well as taking a screen shot of a video,trim and edit it through the Quick Time program. I learned more about creating animated images, but in a manual way, such as taking a video of different pictures, play around with face impressions and so. I would like to gratefully thank Google for helping me through the semester, without it I would have been lost. The class is about exploring information, knowing better about websites and servers and how to be creative.

One of many Inspirations!

BEFORE ME

AFTER MY PERSONAL TOUCH

Andy Warhol is a famous artist who is famous for the way he revolutionized pop art/ visual art movement and also for his sometimes controversial art. Some of Warhol’s work was composed of many forms of media, like drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, silk screening, sculpture, film and even music was a part of his art work. He was also a pioneer in computer-generated art work. He also used Amiga computers to help make his art.Andy Warhol is a big inspiration to me mainly because he had the courage and the ability to branch out and build upon a growing art form and run wild with his art work without looking back or trying to stay inside of the box with his thinking. He let his innate cooky personality come out in his pieces just like in this picture, that I switched up with my own features here and there, which is what made me love this picture in particular. It’s a perfect example of him turning a part of himself into a work of art because art to me is a way in which you can portray something or express an emotion through different styles and ideas that come from within you or it can even be something you are inspired to capture anyway you deem fit. The beauty of art is that there is no wrong or right and I think Andy Warhol understood that  and he let his imagination/ creativity run wild! Which is something I admire a great deal especially because there are so many people that aren’t brave enough to do the same and share it with others and I also want to be more like him in the way he paved his own path.
