The End has Begun! Week 11

For my daily creates this week, I used giphy.com to make a GIF using the island scene from “Madagascar” to add on to the story.

I chose the Winston Churchill quote,”You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” I used a screenshot picture from Naruto, one of my favorite shows growing up. This picture feature Madara Uchiha going up against an entire army of ninja, he definitely stood up for something during his lifetime and the next! I also wrote a poem about a mistake that I made of losing my wallet.

“Today I lost my wallet.

Hey, try to call it.

Maybe it will make a sound

I began to search all around

My wallet was never found.”

The video assignment that I chose to do was the Character/Genre Song Mashup. I used the song Hero by Nas and featured some of my favorite heroes from some cartoons that I use to watch when I was younger. Here’s the link for  that video! Hope you like it!

For the Creating Work assignment, I suggested the video assignment of creating a vlog for a day. Vlogging seems like it can be simple until it is time to actually do it!

The second assignment was to create a video using any form of B-Roll that you can come up with! B-Roll is considered secondary footage or a bunch of random cuts that you use to add context to a story or just overall make the video more interesting. This is the video example that I used for B-Roll. It’s from a video that I made of Eagle Nation Day!

During this week, Dan and I filmed our Content Creator Central video. I was able to learn a lot for myself throughout this process. I was able to check out some of Dan’s personal inspirations of videographers, which actually became some of my inspirations as well. I was also able to compare and learn about all of the different materials he uses for his productions. The most interesting thing he had was of course his drone! I love the cinematic qualities of using a drone. I can’t wait to finally purchase my own, but I don’t want to waste money and get something that isn’t going to give me the best quality. We filmed mostly in the Eagle Landing apartments and covered most of campus using his drone from there.

Question of the Week:

The first thing that I do now that the end has started is gather as many useful companions as possible. One thing that I’ve learned throughout my journey so far is that there is strength in numbers! We might as well prepare together if we want any hope of surviving.

Week 3! Can’t We All Just Get Along?!

I began this week by deciding which novel I was going to read for this semester. I ended up choosing one of the first few that I looked up, “The Man Who Ended the World” by Jason Gurley. I thought that the summary seemed like something that I would be interested in watching on television. The next thing on the list was reading the two short stories. I started reading “the Defenders” and then moved on to “Tupac Shakur and the End of the World”. I was definitely more interested in the concepts and overall storyline of “the Defenders”. The overall messages I received from that story seemed like they were spot on with what occurs in our world currently.

“Human cultures pass through phases, each culture in its own time. As the culture ages and begins to lose its objectives, conflict arises within it between those who wish to cast it off and set up a new culture-pattern, and this who wish to retain the old with as little change as possible.“

“War, to a logical mind, is absurd. But in terms of human needs, it plays a vital role. And it will continue to until Man has grown up enough so that no hatred lies within him.”

are two my favorite quotes that I took from this story. Because I enjoyed this story more, I chose to write the alternate ending featuring Franks going haywire and getting blasted by some tin-man.

I also figured out how to add the pages to my menu that were just direct links to other social platforms. I spent way more time than I wanted trying to figure that out. I don’t know if I’m going to change the appearance of my blog, but I do want it to be more organized.

The item that I would choose to buy from Amazon would be a 2016 Jeep Wrangler. I figure that the most important thing to have would be transportation, even though it would suck getting gas. You only get 21 miles to the gallon but I still think that a car would be the best option to choose from Amazon.

Question of the Week:

If an apocalyptic event occurred I would have no problem sharing food with other if they needed it, as long as my family has already been fed. My main priority would be the survival of my family at any cost, but I would also be focused on helping whoever I can if have enough. I feel like its also important to bridge those relationship to make surviving easier. If something of that nature were to ever occur my main wish would be for everyone to set aside our differences and survive as one. However, it could just as easily go both ways.
