Final Project

The Final Project

The final project is going to be about a mission that my secret agent A.W. will be sent on.

Mission Briefing

A.W. begin to pack the essentials he needed for his mission. This included all of the necessary spy gear he needed.

He carried a few interesting gadgets. Such as a skis that had blades that pop out at the end. He had poison in case he was caught, he would have to terminate himself so the enemy would not figure out his intent.

A.W. will take a helicopter to the mountains near the resort and be dropped off. He will have to ski down to a safe zone.

Just over the mountains is the resort A.W. has to infiltrate.

A.W. waits until the next morning to infiltrate the resort…

A.W. skis down the west side of the mountain out of sight from guards around the ski resort. Yes, guard…that seems fishy to have guards around a ski resort. A.W. suspects their must be something hidden inside that is very important.

A.W. is able to sneak through a back window that no one is guarding. He works his way through the resort being very careful not to get caught.

He stumbles upon a room with tons of crates in it.

He looks inside one of the crates and seems that there is weapons inside the crates. He suspects the money being sent from Russia is funding the Canadians with weapons.

He reports back to director with the new information.

Job well done A.W. this information will help us to further investigate this.

The next mission will be following the money trail. A.W. we need you to go on this mission. Farewell, until then.


This was the final week of ds106. I have come a long way in learning about different digital media and how we can use them to tell a story.

I have become a lot more creative from taking this course and I am very pleased about that.

I think my final project is a good start to a series of missions for A.W. I would like to expand on this and make it a series of missions throughout different blog posts. I got part of the idea from mission 2 in the list of ideas for final projects.

With that, A.W. over and out.

Progress Report

In this blog post I am going to talk about my progress and plan of action for the final project. My plan is to go with item 2.

We have unconfirmed reports that Canada is up to something, so we are looking to defuse the potential situation. Are they conspiring with the Russians? It may seem preposterous, but consider the facts: They’re both vast and brutally cold, they’re both into that hockey thing, and between the two of them they have Santa Claus practically surrounded. And you all know what that could mean. The question is, what will we do about it?

My plan is to send my secret agent (A.W.) on a special mission which involves traveling to Canada and Russia. He must infiltrate a few bases/headquarters. The main goal of the mission is to find out why the Russians are giving the Canadians large sums of money. The goal is to figure out what the Russians want from the Canadians and why the Canadians are communicating with the Russians. A.W. must get the U.S. an answer immediately.

I plan on using multiple kinds of digital media which will include:

  1. video
  2. audio
  3. images
  4. design
  5. web design

My goal is to tie all of these kinds of media into one continuous spy mission.

This week was a fun and interesting one. I learned about telling stories via the web. The web assignments were fun and very informative.

I also experienced using a new tool called x-ray goggles. This allowed us to create and edit existing webpages’ html and css.

Week 8 comes to a close

Week 8 comes to a close. This week we finished up our radio shows. My group collaborated very well and produced a great radio show. Here is the link to my radio show week summary about our show.

We are about halfway through the class and I can say I have learned a lot about digital storytelling and design. My creativity has increased. And my posts are improving.

This concludes week 8’s summary. I look forward to week 9.

 

Here are my daily creates I did this week:

This daily create was all about perspective so I found a picture of a giant golfball.

This is a new quote for Old lady bird book images.

Week 7

This week I focused on collaborating with my group to figure out what our radio show theme will be. We decided to use the theme sexspionage. I made a poster and a bumper for our radio show this week. I found it fun working as a group in coming up with our idea for the radio show. I look forward to working on completing our radio show over the next few weeks. Overall it was a productive week and I expanded my creativity once again.

Below are links to the blog posts I did this week:

Week 6

Week 6 was all about design. I learned about the different aspects of design such as typography, balance, unity, and many other aspects. Design is interesting and I never knew how much thought process and analysis goes into making a design.

Blog post about The Vignelli Canon.

Abstract: The Art of Design .

Here is a link to my design blitz.

Here is my encryption method assignment.

It is important to keep logos simple. See my blog post for an example of a simple logo.

Bitcoin Word Cloud. This was inspired by Bitcoin and its recent all time high price.

For a boost of motivation check out my blog post about a beautiful sunny day.

In conclusion, week 6 was a great week and I learned a lot about design. I actually took the time to stop and think about how products are designed. I learned about aspects of design and had the chance to learn from some great designers. This has increased my knowledge on how to tell a story when you design products. I will take this knowledge along with me on my journey in #ds106.

Week 5 was Live

This week was all about audio. This was one of my favorite weeks so far in ds106. I never knew how to edit audio and create my own edited mp3 files. It was a lot of fun. I learned how to mash different sound effects together to create a story. Audio is a great way to tell a digital story. Learning about Audacity was also fun.

Here are my thoughts on the Moon Graffiti audio story.

ds106 radio show thoughts.

Here is my radio bumper about ds106 radio show.

I created a story about a car starting up and getting into a car crash which was inspired by the accident I just witnessed yesterday.

Next I created a sound effect of ice cubes falling into an empty mug.

My life theme instrumental.

This is also one of the assignments I accomplished which is about email spam.

Here are my ideas for the ds106 radio show.

In conclusion, I have learned a lot about audio this week and it was very fun. I learned how to combine different snippets of audio files and put together a audio story. I am glad I got to experience working with audio. I look forward to week 6 in ds106.
