Week 12 – Mini Documentary

This week I was tasked with creating a mini documentary. For my interview I got in contact with a friend of mine who knows someone who has just become an ambassador for the college of education at Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS. She was glad to help me with this assignment and share what being an ambassador is about.

The interview can be found here:

Week 10 – Video

This week of tasks was pretty simple. The planning of my mini documentary is going pretty well and I think it will turn out well. The video assignments this week were a good refresher on video editing and worked well to help familiarize me with new video editing software. Overall, this week went well.

Week 7 – Online Radio Show

This week was a time consuming one. Me and the rest of the class are getting ready to put together an online radio show. Along with starting the work on the radio show we were also tasked with creating a poster or graphic for the show and completing a few audio assignments. Audio editing is still proving to be a bit difficult because I still haven’t figured out how to use Audacity to its full potential so the editing process is one that has been taking a lot of time. Despite that, I think the class and I should be able to put together a good show by next week.

Here’s my work for this week:

Radio Show Progress

For the radio show, the members of the class have been working using Microsoft Teams. Using this app we can easily communicate and share our progress. We have thrown around a few ideas of how to create the show but we haven’t decided on the way we’re going to do it.

Personally, I have created a commercial that can be used in the radio show. I also have been trying to work out how we might do a podcast style conversation for the radio show.

Make it 800% Slower

One of the assignments I chose this week was the Make it 800% Slower assignment. For this assignment I took a popular 80s song, Don’t Stop Believing by Journey, and slowed it down to turn it into something else. I didn’t slow the song down all the way to 800% because I felt that if any audio was slowed down by that much it would all sound the same. I slowed the song down by a lot though and I got something that could maybe be used for a project on horror or just some eerie background noise.
