Project 4: Filmmaking

The emotion I wanted to express was adventurous. This was because we spent the day exploring caves and I felt very adventurous. I tried to express this emotion by using my Point of View to make the viewer feel like they were exploring the caves.

I ended up using Adobe Spark because Adobe Premier wouldn’t work on my computer. I liked how easy it was to add videos and add the music I created. I didn’t see any ability for transitions between videos on the website.

A tip I would mention with Adobe Spark is that you need to download the video to preview it. Adobe Spark would not play all the videos together to see how it looks. Instead you have to download the video and you are able to play it and watch it as a whole.

Project 3

What did you learn?

I learned how to use Unity to create a first person game. I also learned how to add trees, grass, mountains and many other effects to the environment.

What was easy?

Adding textures to the game was easy and using Unity altogether was pretty easy.

What was challenging?

Finding the trees or types of grass to add in the Unity software was challenging.

How could your submission be improved?

I could have added music to the game.

How could you improve the assignment for the next class?

I think as long as you have someone to go through Unity step by step it will be easy for students to navigate.

How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?

I could create a game on Unity or use the knowledge I have gained from using Unity to help me work with other software.

How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you?

I was inspired by the videos we watched on YouTube of game trailers made by Buffalo Game Space. It was cool to see that they were able to make an idea into a fun and creative game for everyone to play.

Project 2

What did you learn?

I learned how to use “Brackets”, enter a custom font, test my files and customize my website.

What was easy?

It was easy to change the code once I was familiar with the software and enter a custom font from google fonts.

What was challenging?

It was challenging to enter my logo.

How could your submission be improved?

I could have changed the format to make the page more visually appealing.

How could I improve the assignment for the next class?

Just include more details on how to insert the logo. Other than that, everything was very straight forward.

How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?

I would be able to change the format of a website by changing the colors or even updating information on the website.

How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you?

I found this website to very inspiring while working on this project because I was impressed with the animations. The website is very fluid and although it has a simple layout, the complex animations is very appealing. After looking at this website I was excited to work on my own!

Lab 1

Outside of card
Inside of card

I learned how to type text on a designated path, how to mask a layer, and how to draw objects with the brush or use shapes to build an object. I also learned how to make a psd a pdf and print the project.

It was easy to mask layers and add a background. It was challenging to figure out how to set a path for the text.

I could have added more to the inside of the card like another drawing with the pen or brush tool. The same way I made the balloons.

I don’t think there needs to be any improvements. Typing text on a path was the only part I struggled with.

I can use this knowledge to make any type of card or even mask layers to make a cool photograph for someone or myself.

This reading inspired me by the way it talked about photoshop changing what we think when we see an image. You might see an image that has been completely edited with photoshop, but technology is so advanced you would never know.

Lab 1 Discussion

We choose the pixels in part one to practice zooming into the photo to the point where we could select individual pixels. When zooming in on the photo we were able to select individual pixels to practice zooming in and out and to see the color of the individual pixel selected.

Step 12 made the image the selected width and size of our selected values that were entered in the control bar.

This image could be used for a photo of the apple itself or as a layer in another project in photo shop. You could use this apple as a logo or photo on your website.

Other ways you could generate imagery from scratch would be browse the internet for ideas and then use that as inspiration. From the inspiration you could think of an idea and transform the idea into imagery.
