Week 10 Summary

WOW. Who knew 15 stars would be so challenging. Along with my 3 daily creates as lilah, and my 10 comments I was booked. Plus I had the pressure of making a decision for my final project, and the interview with Professor Burtis. All together, it gave me a panic attack.

Well for my 15 stars, I started with a movie trailer mash up I called Psychotic Notebook. I followed with Monroe Montage, Nightmares, and Highlight Reels.

I divided and conquered to get all my stuff done. And I overcame A LOT of technical difficulties. So I’m pretty happy with myself

Lilah Letter

Highlight Reels

As I mentioned in my earlier blog post (Marilyn Montage) I’m  a HUGE fan of Marilyn Monroe. I can relate to her in so many ways, like how she felt she had to sell herself to get recognized. I took scenes from “Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend”, “Monkey Business”, and “How to Marry a Millionaire”. Per usual, I used iMovie and 4K dowloader.

Nightmares (3 stars)

So for another of my 15 stars, I chose to do the audio to visual assignment. Well I searched through Abigail Deaconson’s blog to find if I liked any of the work she did. Well I found something she calls Creep… and it peaked my interest so I clicked on it. Well after listening to it, it made my spine tingle and the task on hand was to pt it to something visual. Well something that’s ALWAYS creeped me out has been the bear from the Snuggle fabric softener commercials. IT’S NOT OKAY! That bear is just intrusive and so sickeningly sweet he must be hiding something.

I used, again the 4K video down loader and iMovie to make my stuff. I downloaded the audio and it took two different Snuggle commercials to fill the audio track, so the bears are different colors, which bugs me. But overall, I’m pleased with how it turned out :)

wow…. I’m insecure

I had my interview today with Professor Burtis. And man, those questions were probing. I ended up feeling very insecure (But that’s a personal problem. I have low self-esteem). My favorite question was probably the blender question. And talking about my favorite dish made me hungry, so shortly after the interview, I made me some shrimp and macaroni :)

I downloaded everything to the 4K video down-loader and edited and spliced everything into one whole video. I used the camera on my computer to record, and it was amazing, it kept all of my recorded videos in order. What I did was I listened to the question, paused it and switched to my computer camera and hit record. I would then hit the “import media” button in iMovie and uploaded the recently recorded video. I went through that process for all ten questions and after I did that I multi-spliced the videos and made them cohesive. I chose to do Burtis’s questions because she’s my professor for this class so.

My 3 daily creates… as lilah

For one of my Daily Creates I chose the finger painting one. I took a Sharpie and colored my left index finger with it. I recolored my finger for every petal I did. I made the stem with the residue of the ink left on my finger. Surprisingly, my favorite part of this is the water stained paper. I like to imagine that it’s rain for the flower

My other TDC I did this week was the tree art. I believe this one’s self explanatory, I took a picture of some trees, and did a negative of the picture. My favorite part of this is how the bark looks. It’s like a ghost tree.

reality check

 

Now this quote is not meant to be a bash on marriage. I just believe America’s romanticized marriage to the point that people go into it with too high of expectations. You can’t swear your life to someone with the expectation of feeling happy, relaxed, and elated 100% of the time. No, your flaws come out, along with your partners, and you WILL offend each other. If you’re only thinking about how the person makes YOU feel, of course you’re going to feel distant, cause that person will never be enough to fulfill your happiness. Signs of a healthy marriage are trust, making efforts to communicate, mutual self-sacrifice, and a relationship that means more than the relationship its self.
