For my final mashup assignment this week I decided to do another 5 star assignment. I believe partaking in two 5 star assignments, ultimately getting me to the overall assigned 10, makes it easier on myself. I rather challenge myself with higher star assignments because it helps build my creativity as well as allows myself to put enough effort into my blog posts.
With that being said I decided to partake in a mashup assignment called Animoji Karaoke. This 5 star assignment asked that…
Have an iPhone? Create yourself using Apple’s Animoji and sing or lip sing to your favorite song! Save the video and upload it to your blog. Make sure to include 1) Why do you think your character looks like you? 2) Why did you chose this song? This mashup includes elements from video, audio, and written work.
This seemed like such a fun assignment to partake in because I love the iPhones new feature of Animoji. I believe it’s a unique way to interact with others and also help build on individual design and creativity skills. Likewise I love karaoke and have no problem belting out any and every song.
That being said I wanted to also incorporate my character, princess/secret agent Juliet Stones in some way. With that in mind I decided to design an Animoji for her. I tried to sketch the Animoji as accurately as I could to my character. I attempted to give her strawberry blonde hair and blueish green eyes to match her description. Creating this Animoji was real simple, all I had to do was go into my phone and select the game pigeon app that is within the messages section of the phone. Once there I simply designed Juliet to my liking and ultimately just had to record myself lip singing a song as her.
The song I chose to lip sing was the perry the platypus theme song. This is in the television show Phineas and Ferb. The is used to introduce their platypus that secretly is a secret agent. I felt doing a song related to the spy genre would be fun, likewise I wanted to do my best to connect this assignment to our class theme and my character.
Ultimately I felt I did my best with this assignment and really enjoyed myself while doing it. It wasn’t too hard and certainly helped expand my creativity. I certainly recommend this assignment to anyone looking for some fun and a slight challenge.
