Animated Movie Poster Attempt 1

Here’s my first attempt at an animated movie poster, as well as my first real post for DS106 pt 2! It doesn’t really look like the other animated posters but this was my take on them. It’s basically the “frame” of the real movie poster. I removed most of the original image, except the candles (which I tried to keep but you can kind of tell where it’s a bit smudged and all). I then made a gif (in photoshop) of the part of the first movie where they arrive at Hogwarts via the boats. Then I put the “frame” of the poster overtop the gif and voilà! My animated movie poster.
This was pretty fun and I will probably make another one and perhaps do a step by step process post of how I did it instead of my awkward attempt at explanation.  🙂
Now to spruce up my blog.

More Harry Potter! :D

I realized halfway through making this that my last post dealt with Harry Potter but at that point I didn’t really care about that because Harry Potter is awesome. Did you know the trailer for the last installment came out yesterday? Yeah, I watched that while procrastinating. Later in the night while I was procrastinating even more on facebook I wondered what Harry Potter characters would do on facebook.

I see Ron Weasley as a huuuuuge procrastinator and so I made his facebook profile page with various statuses and posts regarding writing an essay that was due the next day. One of the  statuses of his is actually real. As in, I posted it as my status last night. Anyways here it is.

Things I like about it.

-Fred or George/Gred or Forge- I feel like Fred and George Weasley would take their joking to Facebook and would want to cause confusion to their friends by having that as their name.

-Cedric’s profile pic- looks like he wants to be Eminem. Not sure if people in the magical world know who eminem is but oh well. I’d like to think that those from the muggle families would poke fun at his profile pic.

 

Once again I used firebug to make this and it was quite easy. The thing that took the longest was changing the pictures on the left hand side because there were so many.

On This Day Assignment

When my roommate Steph came up with the “On This Day Assignment” I knew exactly what I wanted to do for it. And finally, 2 months later I quit procrastinating and did this.

 

 

I did a simple version, just took a screenshot of a Harry Potter movie duel between Harry and Voldemort and put my name (in google colors) on top of it.

Explanation: I was born on May 2 and according to JK Rowling the Battle for Hogwarts/day Voldemort was killed was on May 2, 1998.  I think it’s a rocking birthday. 🙂 And I know this duel in the picture isn’t from the last movie (as it has not come out yet) but I think it gets the point across.
