This week’s DS106 mashup assignment was to take a selfie a day for a week, then publish it. Of course, the effect would be much more dramatic with a longer length of time. A prime example being Noah Kalina’s 12 year long timeline, which continues to grow to this day.
Normally I’m not a huge selfie girl, but I have to admit it was fun. The Everyday App was a great resource, offering a facial grid and daily alarms. After I collected about 7 images, I exported my image timeline to My Photos. Then I imported the video clip to iMovie and repeatedly looped the clip to the beginning portion of the song “Be Brave” by My Brightest Diamond.
Using the Everyday App was very straightforward, but getting to know iMovie took a little more work. Youtube had a very helpful clip, How to Make a Movie in iMovie, by Daligoddess. It gave me a basic overview in order to make a very simple video.
