MY FINAL PROJECT

For this project, the assignment I chose to go with was the “Impress Me” route, where the assignment was to simply impress my professor. It took a while to actually think of what I wanted to do. To be honest I went to youtube to look for inspiration. My inspiration for this project comes from Andrew Huang. He makes a lot of genres of music with a lot of different instruments, including things that aren’t instruments like pants and balloons. I thought of what I could use in my dorm room to make a song, and then thought it might be a little too challenging to use non instrumental things. So, it is a good thing I just had a ukulele just in my room to use. I decided on doing the Lost Woods song from the Legend of Zelda franchise because I actually already know how to play that song without all of the jump cuts. So, how I recorded it was I just played the song REALLY freaking slow and then chopped it all up. Now here is the finished project!

The way I made this was using the basic software because I really haven’t gotten around actually buying any software because I could still make the project just fine while using the basic software. Anyway, I used a mixture of iMovie (for the visuals) and GarageBand (for the audio….obviously)

I first recorded myself playing the song (and other parts of the song) and then loaded it onto my computer. Then I used iMovie to cut it down to what footage I actually wanted. Then I tried to match the ukulele with the original song tempo and such (In GarageBand….obviously). THEN, I went back to iMovie and then tried to match up the footage with the sounds. The only thing that I dislike about iMovie is that it only allows you to have two videos going at the same time…So I tried to get the most out of it. I still think it came out okay for not really having experience doing something like this before. All in all I had a great time making this final project!

Weekly Summary 12

This week was all about Mashups, and doing Mashup assignments.

First, I made a video where I took two songs and mashed them together (The “ABC” Savage Mashup). Then, I Photoshopped a mashup of all my favorite sports teams (Royals, Nets, and Wildcats..oh my). And then finally I took a video that was not originally in english and put made up english subtitles on it (Misheard).

Second, this week we needed to make a tutorial on a project that we have done or did this week. I decided to make a tutorial on how I made my A Reversed Cookie project. I actually more of made a tutorial on how to reverse a video in iMovie (How to Reverse a video on Mac in 6 Easy Steps (With Photos))

For my daily creates this week I did Batman in the White House , and made a still life with red items.

Royals, Nets, and Wildcats..oh my

For this assignment, Your Favorite Teams Mashup, you were meant to create a mashup picture with your favorite team logos on them. Since most of my favorite team don’t really even have a physical mascot (except for the wildcats) I decided to make Willie the Wildcat the main part here. My favorite teams on this picture shown are, Kansas State Wildcats, Kansas City Royals, and the Brooklyn Nets. I used Photoshop to edit together and this project was pretty fun!

P.S. sorry that the Willie is a little fuzzy, I tried to find a large photo that wasn’t blurry/fuzzy, but with no luck this was the best I could do….

The “ABC” Savage Mashup

In this assignment, Vocal Instrumental Mashup, we were meant to take the music from one song a pair it with another song’s vocals. I had a lot of fun with this one, but I think that one of the hardest parts was trying to find songs that have about the same tempo so they can go together. For my mashup I used The Jackson 5’s “ABC” and Jay Park’s “Mommae”. I also used iMovie because I wanted to have the video showing to have Michael Jackson (and brothers) dancing with the music. I had a fun time making this assignment, and wouldn’t mind doing it again in the future sometime.
