    For the Joy of Love.

    Love truly is love. I could talk about the themes behind this post forever, but this is my final project for my ds106 class. Yep, it is being done a little late, but that is because it took me time, and it is a beautiful digital storytelling project. I not only tied music together with digital studies, but I tied together pieces of my love story with the theme of this semester which was for the love of…. My theme has to be the joy of love. I love music. I love digital studies. I art. I love my girlfriend. I choose the four things that I love the most…

    Week Summary 11

    This week I finished up my video and you can view that in my post at: It is more than just music, in the University of Mary Washington’s music department. My daily creates for this week were super fun and creative. First we have my audio that I created  for “Random Emoji Sparks”.  I first grabbed some sounds off of freesounds.com. The image was of a helicopter, a radio, and then a sky lift. So I grabbed a helicopter sound, some music, and then a sky lift sound and mixed them together in logic.  https://t.co/PxLajrFfMr — Hailey Amick (@amick_hailey) April 10, 2022 I took this picture of awesome and had…

    It is more than just music, in the University of Mary Washington’s music department.

    For my movie, I put in a lot of effort making my trailer, and ultimately it came to what this project means. I wanted to do something practical, not that it is a bad thing to do something fun, but this was fun and useful. I run the social media for the UMW Music Department and I wanted to make something that would benefit the people who donate to UMW Music Department, the professors that help us, and a look from the outside for the public. I wanted it to be something that incoming students look at to admire our music department, and inspire them. So first I reached out…

    MINIONS… The Rise of Gru???

    Try this #ds106 Assignment Is this the right movie? https://t.co/0O70mCyzMn The rise of Gru??? Or the Happiness of Gru? pic.twitter.com/5hu0kVjLbA — Hailey Amick (@amick_hailey) April 13, 2022 For this project I first looked up to see what some of the new movies coming out this summer were and minions were first. I liked this because when you think “The rise of _____”, usually it indicates something angry, big, evil, ect. I found this picture of Gru that is nothing but happiness and silliness. So I created this poster on canva.

    I loved the video that Professor Bond posted this week for Digital Storytelling. It helped me feel better about choosing my final project. I was feeling a little unsure, but honestly, he said that we should just be creative and that is my ultimate plan for my project that I am super excited about because I get to combine all the things i love. Featured below is the trailer that I made for this week. I made a small video for the Music Department at UMW talking about what makes the University of Mary Washington have a good music department. I wanted this to be useful as well as a “trailer”…

    Video Essay

    When reading the article, “How to Read a Movie” by Roger Elbert, I didn’t realize how many creative aspects are truly placed to make the audience feel a certain way. The producers use lighting, color, and dialogue to display emotions throughout a piece. Again, I know I am talking about emotions in another one of my posts, but it is so TRUE!    I took 3 scenes off of the movie Encanto and talked about them, but those are just three small moments. I have watched this movie about 20 times. Each time I find something new that intrigues me, but when I watched it through this time I recognized…

    Project Ideas Week 2

    For my project update is that I am going to start a google drive compiling all my ideas for my project which was an idea on Taytu Star’s page except see used a google doc- which I will also include, but mine is going to be songs, that connect to the paintings of Bob Ross. I also recently had the idea of making videos for each as well, but we will see… I might take clips of Bob Ross’s videos, but I also don’t want that to be considered plagiarism. I am trying to pick out a genre for my album, but I am honestly going to inspire this album…
