Sports are not everyones favorite hobby or thing to watch, but everyone loves to see greatness!
For this assignment I chose to do the evolution of mobile phones as they are so popular today and play a vital role in our everyday lives, some of us can rarely go a day without using them.
Some people might be shocked to see how they looked before compare to how modern they are today.
Cool stuff huh? Yup mobile phones have changed a lot since its birth.
For this assignment we had to create a puppet and record it doing some movements infront of a green screen and then layer it over an existing video. I had a tough time thinking of what to use and how to go about doing it.
And this was the end result…..
I chose the archetype of the creeps/weirdos for this assignment and instead of using movies I used clips from some of my favorite funny tv shows which are very popular.
Have a laugh or two…….
It was fun using getting the clips and thinking of which ones to use and them editing them using imovie, this was my first time ever working with videos

Im a bit of a clown for this one. This is a recording of me prank calling a Chinese restaurant and trying to order Jamaican food. I used this crazy Jamaican accent which made the first woman who answered the phone pass it to her co-worker to try to understand me. I think I did a good job acting like a Jamaican, take a listen….

This is a really funny one to me, this is an actual recording of a reverse 911 call I made to my friend. My cousin has this software which changes the caller id of his phone which allowed me to make my friend think it was 911 calling her as that was the number which appeared on her phone. I acted as though I was calling her back and she already called me. I asked her crazy questions like was she in danger or not. Here you go take a listen…..
Audio assignment #70
I downloaded the sound effects to create this from freesound.org/ I got the idea to this from a movie I just happened to over hear while I was surfing through channels on tv. Though I didn’t really see what was going on in the movie I heard some sounds like these which let my imagination run wild as to what was going on in the movie.
In week four we learned how to create graphic gifts by only cropping out one specific part of a picture and getting rid of the rest leaving a clear layer around the cropped portion and editing it further. This allows me to use my new graphic gift and place it onto another picture and manipulate it however I feel like. Here is the link of my graphic gift post -> http://kyounis.com/my-graphic-gift/
I have to admit I had been slacking on the daily creates but in week four I did these three:
I was looking all around me for something shiny, while all long it was right there on my hand. So here is my shiny new watch
Daily create #372 The most fun thing I ever did.
Flying a plane is one of the greatest things I have ever did in my life. Well sure there was a flight instructor sitting right next to me in case anything went wrong, but I was the one controlling the aircraft for the most part. The aircraft was a piper warrior, a small propeller plane which sat four people.
Daily create # 372 A place I like to work
This is my favorite place to work from, in the comfort of my home.
This is a picture that I taken while I was doing some C++ programming on my macbook.
On week there we began to do some even more fun stuff in class, working on animated gifts. It was cool to learn how to create one of these motion picture because I have always seen them on the internet and was always fascinated with them. Professor Smith showed us various ways to go about creating our animated gifts and getting the videos from youtube in order to use in creating them. I chose to do mines on the show “The Big Bang Theory” which is one of my favorite shows on tv. Here is a link to my first animated gift -> http://kyounis.com/hey-world-shes-my-girlfriend-d/
Week two came very quickly after week one with me still eager to learn new things. We began to customize our blogs in class by changing the appearance and adding vital pluggins which would important for our website to function smoothly. Everything still felt so new to me as I was getting used to this entire new world of multimedia which was before me.
It wasn’t untill week two when I did my first daily create and this is what it was For this daily create I had to take a picture of something broken and my empty cup of soda was right there in front of me and I thought of it being metaphorically broken as it was empty
