Final Project: Call Lost

This was sadly our last assignment for my Digital Media Convergence class. We were allowed to make anything we wanted as long as we pitched the idea to our class and received feedback. My idea was to make a silent film with a minor twist. I will be honest, I had a slightly different thought process in how I would approach my final film, but it all worked out for the best. As always, let me know what you think!

Stop Motion Project

I have very much enjoyed my DMC class this year. One of our final projects was to try our hand at a stop motion film. I was not quite sure how I would go about creating a storyline for said film, so I used whatever I had around me to do so. I used my friends’ stuffed animals. The feel of the video is extremely lighthearted, and care free. I hope you like it!

Surreal Photography

These are my favorite photos so far. I am really excited about how these came out. Since I wanted to use all original material, I merged my street photography shots that I took earlier in the year to make something completely different. It was really great to get to use all the Photoshop skills we have been learning throughout the year. As you can see, I leaned towards manipulating blending modes and opacity to create the surreal look in my photos. Let me know what you think!

All photos were taken with a Nikon D90 camera.

School of Communications Logo

And here is my lovely logo idea for the Elon University School of Communications Department. The school is currently looking for a new logo, and I wanted to give it a fresh look. Without choosing one particular sect of communications, I chose to use the basic “communication” symbol around the word communication. Let me know what you think!

Winter Term Logo

This is my entry for the Winter Term Logo competition at Elon University. The logo and tagline is meant to invite and appreciate diversity. My tagline of Learn, Explore, Discover is meant to encourage students to get outside of the college bubble and see how life exists in the world abroad.

My First Mashup

This is a mashup video I made of my DMC class’ responses to Jonathan Rosenberg’s speech at Elon University. This project taught me a lot about how easy it is to manipulate (for better or for worse) people’s words. When you post your opinions on the internet, it is available for everyone to see. It truly opened my eyes to just how easy it was for me to mashup everyone’s words in accordance with what I wanted them to say.
