Recycled Media Mashup

Reduce, Reuse, RECYCLE!

I’ve taken 5 pieces of unused media from the Ds106 junked media bucket and created this…I don’t know what it is, but it seems like an awesome party to be invited to!! I mean penguin suits?? Sign me up!

This video was created for the Recycle the Media assignment where we had to take only 5 pieces of media and mash it up to tell a story. The 5 materials I selected were 4 pictures and 1 audio file. The images I chose at random were: a guy and his reflective shades, a girl in a penguin suit, a girl sticking her tongue out, and a party scene. The audio I used was simply labeled “Scrap_yeah_yeah” so I’m assuming the song is called “Yeah Yeah.”

Since I still couldn’t get the Popcorn remixing program to work because of the flash player crisis I mentioned in my last blog entry, I had to use Final Cut again (not that I have a problem with it, it just takes a while for things to render sometimes.) I guess the story here is that the people in the pictures have waited all week for this day, and it’s finally here. They must buy all the snacks, prepare their costumes, and put on their game faces because tonight they’re going to stop everything they’re doing and PARTY like there’s no tomorrow!
