Storytelling Through Text…

Here I present my 5 star text story! My actual suite mate Melody helped me form this silly horror story filled with twists. I WAS SO SELF-CONSCIOUS OF HOW BAD I WAS AT TYPING. Thank goodness we have spell-check. All I did was write a script and then screen record the conversation.

I wanted to introduce this story very predictably and keep yanking the viewer around. I’ve never done story-telling this way before, but it does help you use your imagination. We wanted to try making the pauses at least a little realistic without seeming boring. Enjoy!

Sadcat Superimposition

When you finish a really good video game and you don’t know what to do with yourself

This is a 4.5 star mashup assignment where you have to superimpose images over another one. Personally, I can’t take superimposed photos seriously. They all look like memes. So I made a meme.

I took the final screen you see in one of my favorite video games, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild first. It’s meant to symbolize the general feeling of completing a game, and this was the first one to come to mind. There’s a general feeling of emptiness and satisfaction when you beat a really long video game, so I made this silly picture to go with it. I put the photo in an online photo editor first.

Then, I added layers with more images. I picked photos of edited “sad cats” which are just cats with sad watery eyes on them and lowered the opacity to superimpose them on top of the landscape.

My mini story is the meme caption I wrote above! It sums up what it’s like to finish a game in an image.

Logo Switch Up

This is a two star mashup assignment! My task was to edit a brand onto a different product (that would not be related) I thought it would be a funny idea to take a company and product that had nothing to do with each other.

I hunted for red logos that looked similar. I decided I wanted to use Nintendo for one of them, so I mostly searched for similar fonts or appearances that kind of matched their logo.

Nintendo Toothpaste

I found that the Colgate logo has a similar red and white look to it! I selected this because no one would ever associate these companies with each other unless there was some sort of kid’s promotion.

I used a photo editor to stack a Colgate toothpaste tube and the Nintendo logo, and then I put the logo over the original. There was some parts sticking out, so I colored over it with the same red color.

Please don’t use a Nintendo product to brush your teeth!
