Welcome to my Reflections Website! Throughout the course of this unit, each project was focused on answering the question of "Who am I?". During the Narrative 2 Unit we learned many new things in English, Design, and Digital Media. In English, we wrote a personal essay, short story, and lyrical essay. Eventually we recorded ourselves reading these pieces in Digital Media and edited the recordings into tracks. In Digital Media we also learned new skills in Adobe After Effects, Animate, and Pro Tools. We learned how to use 3D graphics effects while editing videos in After Effects and how to animate our own motions using Adobe Animate. In Pro Tools, we learned how to do ADR recordings which means you can sync up the voice recordings with videos so a person’s lips in a video can be synced with the audio. I felt my learning experience in Digital Media this semester was the best so far. I learned many advanced techniques that I was not able to pick up last year because I was so new to everything. Throughout this semester in Design we also learned many new skills in photoshop. These skills included different surrealist effects, black and white photography, and creating a diptych image. My overall learning experience in Design this semester was fun but challenging. Learning new skills in Photoshop took a while to master because of the many details that need to be followed.
In the process of designing this website I first started by drawing a design on paper. Below you can see an image of my original design of my website. My goal when designing the website was to keep the design simple but asthetically pleasing.
