This week has quite a challenge for me learning how to deal with the assignments of DS106. Let me tell you about it.
Radio show Reflection
I had the pleasure of listening in on some great radio shows from my fellow students. “Dinner Party at 6″ was probably one of the more engrossing radio shows of all the groups. They did a spectacular job of using soundeffects to create a brooding, ominous atmosphere for their listeners. Their soundeffects were scary and stimulated tension and suspense.
“Silk Road” Radio Show Reflection
For the final reflection on my group radio show, I was thrilled to listen to my radio show on live radio for the first time. I felt my group did an amazing job at combing our ideas and creating our own version of film noir. The comments were positive and showed great room for constructive criticism.
For the daily create this week, I chose to create a video for myself in the future, 15 years from now! In the video, I spoke to my future self as someone who has already lived through all my life experiences even ones I haven’t lived yet. I wanted to thank my future self for being strong and enduring past the hardships of this period of life. And that even though my life might have seemed hard at some points, Daniel from 2030 kept on perservering.
For the video assignment, this assignment was worth 4 points and I incorporated my own character in this video. I had to display my character’s personality through video clips. I couldn’t get video clips so I just found photos of certain anti-hero characters that inspired me to create my own character. They all reflect characteristics that are ubiquitous with Carter Smith.
This week has been quite a challenge, but I enjoyed all the learning experiences from getting used to new technology and learning how to read movies better.
