This week my group and I finished our final project. We worked together to show the world our take on today’s songs and their 80s counterparts. Many songs included Calvin Harris, Rihanna, and many more.
We broke down each song and discusses the differences between the two time periods. We talked about synthesizers, instruments, and everything in between. We decided to post this story on both YouTube and SoundCloud. We thought that it would be the best way to reach our audiences.
Below is the sound cloud version of our show where we dissect today’s music and their 80s remix.
Next, thanks to James, we have the video version of our show. This took some time to complete, as did the audio, but it was a great time overall. The video turned out great, and I think you’ll get a kick out of it. It is split into two parts.
I had a great time with this group. We work well together. We came up with topics that we enjoyed, we produced a show that we care about, and we were able to complete everything with no hiccups or headaches. It truly was an enjoyable experience, and if I had the opportunity to work with these people again, I would.
Thanks for such a great semester everyone. This class has always been a goal of mine to take at the University of Mary Washington, and I was finally able to do so on my last semester. I’ll always remember the skills and not so perfect but adequate projects I was able to produce with my time here. I hope everyone moves on to bigger and better things.
The final weeks are upon us. This week we are tasked with grouping together to create our final media project. This time, instead of creating a masterpiece on one social media platform, we must adapt it to multiple different social media platforms for the viewer. This means that if we make a radio show for SoundCloud, we should try to create a video version as well.
We all had a couple ideas, but the ones we are settling on are creating a horror movie that also can be converted into an audio show or taking existing 80’s movies and changing their genre completely with the magic of editing.
These ideas are quite broad, but they allow our group to be creative in our edits and create something the viewer will bond to. Speaking of our group, here are our members. James, a video editing genius. Lilian, our creative mind. Lewis, a contagious comedian. Hayden, a master in 80’s history. And myself, the audio guy.
Our plan for this week and on is to finalize our script, create an outline of everything we need. Record, record, record. Then, finally, edit and put everything together. Audio effects come last. And then, come deadline, we will push both our audio show and video show to both SoundCloud and YouTube, and finish the class!
I am excited to work with this group for the THIRD time. We randomly chose each other for the first radio show, and it ended up being the best thing we could do. We have a system and chemistry that you can’t find anywhere else. We never have problems. So, for this final project, I can’t wait to help produce something great once again.
I, unfortunately, was not able to participate this week. I’ve been working crazy 80+ hour weeks lately and I think all of the exhaustion and stress is catching up to me. However, I was able to finish some assignments. I feel bad. But, here it goes.
I started out my week with a daily create. This would be my only daily create, but at least I managed to get one done.
You can read about this daily create on a post I made about it here:
I also finished an assignment that I found to be the most entertaining. I tried my best to make sure that all of the mouth movements fit the song perfectly. It was The less I know the better by Tame Impala. I hope you find it entertaining. I sure did.
That is it for this week. I am going to work my butt off for the final project we have coming up to make up for the lack of work this week. I hope everyone is staying safe!
