Weekly Showcase #2

Hey guys! This is your host, Eve Winters, and this week I wanted to focus on all of the hard work we have all put into this class. As we all focus our efforts on finishing our final projects, which all sound amazing and exciting, I wanted to look back on the top five works of the semester.

Number five on our countdown is a design assignment to make your own cereal box cover. I like the thought put into this design and love how detailed it is. You can see the post here.

Number four on our countdown is a video assignment to make a mini documentary about someone. I like how the person of interest in the video is the host character Spooksy and how creepy the voice is. The voice lends itself to the video and makes it so much better. You can see the post here.

Number three on our countdown is a video assignment to make a montage of things you love. I love that the video was based on the host character, Bridget, who had been locked up for years in an insane asylum but is now free. The focus of the video is everything that is colorful and represents freedom which contrasts Bridget being locked up for years. You can see the post here.

Number two on our countdown is a video assignment to put together two movie scenes. I loved this assignment because it was funny while also being serious. It was different from the horror theme of the class and was a very creative mashup of movie scenes. You can see the post here.

Our number one assignment of the semester is a mashup assignment to combine your favorite three works from the semester into one. Gabby did a marvelous job on this assignment and I love that she chose three assignments about her host character, the Death Whisperer. She combined them well and I enjoyed reading her explanation of her assignment. You can see the post here.

That rounds out our countdown of the five best works of the semester. I hope you all enjoyed looking back on the semester with me and I can’t wait to see everyone’s final project.

Weekly Showcase #1

Hey guys! This is your host, Eve Winters, and this week I wanted to focus on reveling in the past. There is so much history in this great country and I find it fascinating to look back on.

American Timeline

This is why I will be highlighting the best works from the daily create that we had on Friday, October 16th, 2015. Our timeline starts in the 1860s with the Civil War. This time period was submitted by Miles Davis.

I liked that Miles tied in our school to the era as well. It really brings out the significance of the time period and how it affects us today. Our next time period on our timeline is from the 1870s to the 1900s with the Gilded Age. This time period was submitted by Glen Cochrane.

The picture that Glen chose was beautiful and captured the essence of the Gilded Age, the introduction of new things that brought large groups of people together. The next time period in our timeline is the 1940s with World War II. This time period was submitted by Jerome Mueller.

Jerome’s background story is unbelievably realistic and truly brings you into the time period. The picture he includes is hilarious but, along with the background story, shows how much work was put into this hoax. Our next time period is from the 1940s to the 1950s with the prime time of Rock and Roll. This time period was submitted by We’reAllInsaneHere.

I loved this submission because Elvis is a true symbol of Rock and Roll and this time period (excuse the pun) ROCKED!!!! I’m not kidding though, this time period put America above all other countries in the world. Our final time period is the 1990s. This time period was submitted by Caleb Snow.

This submission was super cool since I was born in the 1990s and don’t remember much of the fashion from back then. But if you think about it, without this crazy fashion time we wouldn’t have the awesome fashion trends that we have now. This rounds out my timeline for this week. I hope you all enjoyed going back in time with me and keep up the good work everybody.
