    Final Project

    First I recorded myself saying the ransom note. Then I used Audacity to edit my voice tone into a scarier sound. I then uploaded it onto my Soundcloud. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1yg69Jqxq9kC84UVLg0_yg3xtqzUAHBn7&usp=sharing I used My Maps to create a message saying that the people who captured Kira need $5,000,000 if Cosmos Myth want her back. She is from Italy, so I used that part of the world map to tell this part of the story. For my final part of the project, I created a video of the ten days that Kira was in captivity. I used my iPhone to film and Final Cut Pro to edit the video. Then uploaded it onto…

    Final Project Proposal

    My story is that my character, Kira, has been captured. They want $5,000,000 or they will kill her. I will be using video storytelling, audio storytelling and web storytelling to complete my final project. I am most nervous about the audio as that is my weakest skill. I am planning on recording a message then using Audacity to edit it and make it scary. Hopefully it will all turn out!

    If I had all the Money

    My Dream Vacation What would I do if I had all the money in the world?? Well.. I start by paying off my car loan, then pay for my masters program. Then I would be super selfish! I would take my love and go on a year long vacation! Greece is the country I would travel to. I would immerse myself into the culture and do my best to learn the language. Throughout the year of vacation, I would sight see the major landmarks of the country, but I would also go off the beaten path to small villages. My goal would be to learn as much about the entire…

    And The Tail Began

    My Process First, I had to decide on a myth to tell a story using gifs for this assignment. Once I had figured out the story I was going to tell, I looked it up online to make sure I did not forget anything. I then used Giphy to look up the different gifs to use. Can you guess the story? Need any hints?

    Endless Summers

    How does one simply get rid of a run down boat and make some money? You lie. It will work, because people will definitely not catch on. First you find a website that will allow you to post anything. Then you make up some crazy story that seems totally realistic. But.. you have to post the pictures of the actual boat, otherwise people might be a little suspicious when they show up. Now all you have to do is wait. Wait for someone to respond to your post. Wait. It will work. Original Page Edited Page I chose to create a Craigslist post for this assignment. Throughout the past, I…

    Map of Grey’s Anatomy

    https://kumu.io/fmartino/greys-anatomy-characters#map-xr19NAsj For this assignment, I chose to map out the major characters of the famous Grey’s Anatomy. I decided to connect the characters based on blood relatives, spouses, children, lovers and friends. I started by entering each character at a time and connecting them as I went along. This was a longer process than I anticipated. all the characters are connected in some way which made the mapping difficult. I enjoyed putting this together and digging deeper to find how everyone was connected.

I have recently been on a Grey’s Anatomy kick and decided to make the quiz on the characters. https://www.pinterest.com/faithmartino/my-dream-vacation/ Greece. I have been there once and stayed for five months. I was there for work and was not able to explore much. I would love to be able to explore through all the non tourist spots.

    Thoughts on Design

    Design. How does one define that simple word? In another life, I think that I would want to be a Graphic Designer. I looked at two articles this week that analyzed design. The first article was written by Massimo Vignelli titled The Vignelli Canon. It goes through the principles of design. This article was extremely helpful and important to the design world. Some of the principles he talks about are syntactic, pragmatic and semantic. He writes that syntactic is what makes up your design. Pragmatic is seeing if the design is done and if people will understand it. Semantic is knowing everything you can about your design. The second reading…

    Design Time

    Typography is a form of design that arranges typed words into an art form. For this beautiful picture above, the artist used the quote “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible.” to create a poster of Aubrey Hepburn. This worked extremely well because it used the art form and her own quote to make the piece. Dominance is the focal point of an image. The entire photograph above scrams dominance. But her eyes are the dominant element. Colors are a huge part of peoples lives. They hold meaning and tell stories. These colors above represent America and everything that we stand for as a country. Minimalism is a…
