thats so proud

in doing the mashup assignment “disney mashup,” i decided to mix the intro songs of my favorite disney channel shows, the proud family and that so raven. at the beginning of this mashup i wanted there to be intros where you see the name of the shows. then a slowed down 5-10 sec clips of each of the shows alternating. then i concluded with fast alternating clips of both the shows so that it feels that while two different narratives and formats are being utilized, its in the same world, where these quirky blk girls get to be young and free.

i used youtube for the clips and iMovie for editing.

the real grinch story

the grinch did not hate Christmas, he hated people, which is understandable. all he every tried to do was mind his business, eat his cookies, and love the girl he love. but because of the hater-ation and holler-ation of his bullying classmates, he got mean. then when kindness and love was extended to him, he did good by the people and Christmas. so again, the grinch just really did not have time for rude and demeaning people, as my true movie trailer edit shows.

i got the video from youtube and used iMovie to edit it. i decided to focus on the grinch’s childhood — origin story– because i feel that is what the original trailer keeps hidden so as to not spoil the story.

meskeen mo’s day at the protest

in the mashup assignment “superhuman in everyday life,” i decided to take creative liberty and make my superhero someone who define under the umbrella of superhuman but is not a dc/marvel character. in the image above i have mashed up the Edmund Pettus Bridge Civil Rights protest in Selma Alabama and an image of the wonderful songstris Erykah Badu.

my reasons for mashing these two up has to do with my character, maskeen   aka mo’s power as an empath who defies time and spacial locality to be a transient character that just appears during these pinnacle point in revolutionary spaces so as to help folks heal emotionally and maintain self care and sustenance as they continue their (r)evolutionary pursuits. that being said, i choose Erykah as my superhero symbol because i think she encompasses the essence of mo, blk pride, self-care, creativity, community activism and engagement.

i knew these images were what i wanted to work with so i found them on google and then used canva to edit them.
