The year is 2032, population is reaching over 12 billion, resources are steadily on a decline, and the atmosphere is 5 degrees higher than it was in 2010. The world has never came to a resolution to how they will bring control and balance back to Earth. Sooner or later, the destruction of Earth will be due to the human race. The date is July 4th of 2032, America is celebrating it’s independence day. Everyone is outside spending their grand day. An asteroid the size of a school bus is directed to hit the east coast near the city of Fredericksburg. At 10:55 PM, the asteroid lands directly in the middle of Downtown, the inhabitants of the town come closer to inspect the crater that was created. As they draw close and the smoke dissipates, the view of a green like substance is spewing from the rock. Suddenly, the rock spits out the green substance into a man’s face, he is panicking and screaming as he in udder disgust of what has entered his mouth. He vomits and falls unconscious, everyone surrounds him to see if he is alright. The man opens his eye, they are bloodshot and surrounded by puss. He grabs the nearest person’s leg and bites time and goes on a murderous rampage. The man bitten runs in horror and collapses soon after to be reanimated as the first infected man.
4 hours later since the initial spread of the disease, the CDC and military takes action. They were unsuccessful in the process and the infection has spread to 60% of the world. However the surviving members of the human race traveled north where it is colder and harder for the infection to spread. Years later, the infection is nearly extinct, the population of the planet has reached 2 billion, civilizations collapsed, resources are steadily on an incline, and the atmosphere’s temperature is stable. On the bright side it looks like in order to save the human race as well as the earth there would be a need of an event so large that it wipes out large populations.
Overall, this class was the most fun I’ve had with a class in awhile, personally it was a learning experience and pushed me to learn to create content I’ve always wanted to do. With the topic of this class, I believe it was perfect and really set a format for endless possibilities out of content creating. The pace the class had was just right and perfect and did not set out to be a challenge like some of my friends would say. Thank you for the experience and have a great summer :).
For the motivational poster I already knew what image I wanted for the poster. I chose the scene from I Am Legend where Robert Neville is dangling from a trap set up by the mutants. I chose the Bucket List Assignment because I knew what Robert Neville would want in his life before he died from reading the book. Over the past couple weeks after the video weeks, I’ve been hard at work looking up tutorials in order to make my videos better than they used to be. For the Why so serious? assignment I took soundboard sounds that I had from personal projects and green screen clips added to the video. For the Mini Documentary I downloaded several clips from the movie, tied it together from a small speech that Robert gave and also added my own twist to it at the end. If wanted, I can create a video on how I made any part of the videos.
Question of the Week
Look to your right. The thing you see is the only weapon you’ll have during the End. How will you use it to survive?
I have a durable Swiss Army Knife/Pliers, which I believe will come extremely useful to my survival. It has a serrated knife, pliers, ruler, file, phillips/flat nose screwdriver, window breaker, wire cutter, bottle opener, can opener, and many more!
I believe Robert Neville’s bucket list would contain these:
Find another living human
Beat my depression
See his daughter and wife once again
Find the cure
While Robert Neville was alive he did not find another living human. He lost his family thus made him spiral into a depression assisted by alcoholism. Eventually he wants to find a cure, goes to a library and read up books, but he is not a person capable of finding a cure.
Why So Serious?
I know I didn’t follow the purpose of the assignment, but it is comedy.
This week, was closely related to last week, watch a movie and complete some video assignments of your choice. For watch a movie I chose 10 Cloverfield Lane, a movie I’ve watched before. Overall, it is a great movie to show a different scenario during an apocalypse. For the video assignment I choose Mash a Movie for DS106. As for the video assignments, I made a video on the 10 Apocalyptic Questions, Sock lock, How to Video, and Dear Sixteen year old, me. These were all fun to make and I know I’ll make tutorial videos in the near future on my own for personal projects. The only con to making a lot of videos is the amount of time it takes to render and upload! I had to wait hours for some of the videos to upload and render.
Question of the Week
You hear on the radio that the End has started. What do you do first?
If, I am in my car I would text my friends to meet up at my house and pick up anyone I cherish with me. If I am else, where I would do the same pack food, water, and weapons as fast a possible
I’ve had Sony Vegas Pro for a very long time now, but I’ve only used it once or twice to edit videos for the video games I play. Starting off with the movies to review and show what video techniques were used, I chose 28 Days Later. This movie was always a favorite, I remember watching it at an early age and the amount of fear and nightmares I had after were engraved into my head. When I saw 28 Days Later on the list, I immediately knew which scene I wanted to analyze. I used StreamLabs OBS, to make the videos this week, commonly used to stream video games and content creating.
I chose this path because I like to do assignment banks. I chose the flashcard assignment is because it’s one that I am familiar with seeing on the internet. Making the video was actually pretty difficult making, making sure the monitor doesn’t reflect on your glasses, making sure the camera can pick up the written words, and what is your last index card, etc. I’ve always wanted to make tutorial videos because I enjoy teaching others nifty tricks and tips so choosing the assignment to create a tutorial video on how to use a certain software was the way to go.
Question of the Week
What question would you like to ask the class?
What do you guys think could be in the next couple last weeks of the semester?
Although this week did not have a crazy amount of work as compared to the previous weeks, it was still a fun one. It was having a blast creating our radio show and finally present it and show our class. During the presentation of our radio bit, I doubled in the amount of tweets I’ve ever tweeted and most activity I’ve ever had. Recreating my Juxtapose from week 4 was fun because it was one of those projects that I had a load of enjoyment and seeing how cool this is. If anyone would like to listen to our radio show again, here is the soundcloud to it!
Question of the Week
What’s one thing you definitely couldn’t live without during the apocalypse? How would you go about obtaining it?
I feel like the most important thing I could have and would be something I couldn’t live without is, a water filter tube. Those things can filter water like a straw straight from a stream of water. I could probably obtain this from going to any store that has an “AS SEEN ON TV” sign in-front of it as that is where I saw one.
