A word story

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

For this assignment I had to chose words (randomly) and do google image search on the words I chose randomly. I selected the first visible photos for the words. Then I created a story by utilizing iMovies.

A Rather Wordy Video

Another Video Assignment for this week ( was to: Chose up to 5-10 words..just randomly pick them don’t over think it just chose these words out of the blue. Then do a Google image search on these images and chose one of the first visible photos for the word..after you have chosen your words and your images put them together in video form and tell a story..include a sentence with each image to help guide your story or try and tell it without the sentences.

The words that I chose were: Bad, Boys, Good, Girls, Date. These words were the first 5 words to pop into my head after reading the assignment. This could have because of the Carrie Underwood song “Good Girl” or that fact that my girlfriends and I had a old school slumber party and watched “Sex and The City 1&2″ this past weekend. However this is what I came up with, and it has been proven over the past few century’s.

I am a very random person. I love saying random things at random times, just because its funny. When I saw this assignment I instantly became excited because I had a chance to be random. For once in my life, I can use my randomness for something productive.

I chose 10 words off of the top of my head. I chose to words, MAN, FUNNY, CHEERLEADER, LOVE, ALSO, PURPLE, SING, MUSIC, HAIRY, UGLY. After I had chosen my words, I tried my hardest to make a sentence that made sense, but it was hard. This assignment was overall easy to do. These are the steps to how I created this project.

1. I googled my 10 words on Google images

2. Saved the images to my computer

3. Opened up Windows Movie Maker

4. Imported the 10 pictures in

5. Dragged each word separately, and placed it into the timeline

6. made the pictures smaller, so they would flow faster, yet smoothly.

7. Imported the instrumental version of “Disturbia ” – Rihanna

8. Dragged the song onto the timeline under the pictures

9. Made the song fade towards the end

10. Matched the music to the pictures




And that was the whole assignment, it took me about 10-15 minutes to do and it was fun as well. I hope you enjoyed it.

105 degrees

It’s hot.  It’s been hot all week, and I’ve been thinking about The Twilight Zone episode called “The Midnight Sun.”

The word that Mrs. Bronson is unable to put into the hot, still, sodden air is ‘doomed,’ because the people you’ve just seen have been handed a death sentence.

Yeah.  That’s kind of how I feel.

If you’d like to view the episode in its entirety, do it:

Last night I started working on video assignment #539.  I generated the random words and found some of the pictures through Google Images.  I had some idea of where the story was going to go.  I went to bed.  I sat down with it again tonight, and the tale veered in a different direction.

In “Midnight Sun,” civilization faces its last days.  The story below focuses on a doomed relationship. What has happened?  Has the couple fallen into different rotations?  Has the affinity for a crappy band taken its toll?  Maybe the constant tallying of mistakes has worn thin.  Or maybe it’s just the damn heat.

The opening of the project was stolen from this tweet which appeared in my stream this afternoon:
