This week was how we say EHH!?!. I was not a fan. It seems to me that in reality this course is full of mashups, whether you want to call em that or not. I can think of only a hand full of times I have been asked to create my own content. I find this extremely disheartening. Oh well, I guess, I would like to do some work though that applies to the real world. Something that requires planning and coordination, maybe even team work. Any how, my projects this week were short and sweet which is not a bad thing considering the course load I am under currently. Here are a few links to my assignment this week.
the second one was ehh, risque’ but I am not really worried. we are in college and also adults if there is a problem please contact me so I can let you know I am not concerned with your offence.
My second project took a little more time and I do feel this one is worth 4 stars unlike the last project. here is my movie poster mash up. I hope it is effective. I tried to stray away from the examples used which mostly but not all simply clipped out a piece of one image and pasted it into another. I tried to just recreate the whole poster. any how, here is my movie mashup poster.
and here is the original poster from the james band movie moonraker
This week is mash-up week, and we are off. I would like to state for the record that the world of the internet we live in today is full of intellectual theft. As a photographer any time I give some one the right of use for any of my pictures I always give them the standard BS. “Don’t alter them, Don’t crop out my logo, If you can site me as the author.” The mash-up is sort of a perversion of free speech. I do think that you should be able to use anyone’s work for education. I also feel the use of another’s work for criticism and press is vital to my love of liberty in this country. However, using other’s work for rebranding is unprofessional.
With that being said here we go with my first theft of intellect. for this project I use the assignment bank assignment called “this doesn’t belong here”
