1/2. I really cant tell If I enjoy Web development or Graphic designing more! I loved learning more about coding as this has been my first time using it and I wouldn’t be opposed to doing this again!

3. I am apparently good at writing even though I feel that it is mostly bull which is really rather funny! I’m not against it but I really don’t write for fun.

4.I know…very little…about movie making, it is not a grand passion of mine…But! I am willing to learn!

A good place to see what I can do is actually my com 210 blog as it has examples of work that I have done this year.




I tried to code my website mostly by my self, I of course looked up tutorials and based things off of them however I tried not to copy but to understand the reasoning behind them.

I had to start with one page to make the heading and footer, after I got this done, I just copied and pasted this on all of the other pages.

This happened to be rather challenging because I haven’t done and HTML coding before! There was a lot of trial and error that I had to go through but I believe that this helped me understand things more.

This is not quite ideal as I haven’t done any graphic designs or personal touches however it is responsive and that is very important to me. I had a wire frame that looks rather different from this Proust however that is ok as it is a stepping stone and I have all ready learned a lot!

I feel like modes are used a lot in this project. The most obvious one is visual and sptial because websites are meant for viewing. I had to make buttons that the audience could tell were clickable. This was interesting as I used a fade or colour effect as I did not like the pointer mouse. I also had to use linguistic even though it is very rough an I am not sure if it will all stay the way it is.

I intended this to be for an audience that would like to hire a person or for an audience that would appreciate what I do. This will most likely change to clientele in the future.

8. Web Experiance

I can really renember when I started to use the web, I do know that I played computer learning video games at least in the third grade on the family desktop computer. Now everybody in my family has a laptop which is very fascinating.

I use the web all the time. Part of it is because Im a college student and part of it is the web is a great source of entertainment. Recently I have thought about how the internet works far more then I used to. This is due to the fact that I want to be able to make my own profile website!

This however is proving to be a lot of work.


This is the experience of my coding! I have been attempting to follow a lynda.com course material. I believe it is HTML. The software that I am using is a free one called brackets that allows you to see your work in a live preview which is pretty cool.

I have no Idea what relying on templates means haha! I use websites that use pre-made templates such as wordpress and wix. these however are just click and drag, what you see is what you get sites.

I find the internet to be fascinating.




7. Justification Paper

In making this two-minute video, there was many things that I really wanted to do but had to change as there was not enough time to either make it or show it.

One such thing is the original idea to have clips of filming myself talking. I could not have these in my film as I was already extremely limited on time. In order to fix this, I had to just cut it out completely. I feel like if I kept it in, I could have added another layer of creditability or ethos.

Another thing I had to really cut back on was the amount of words that I wanted to say. I had a hard time doing this as I wanted to explain everything but then I realized that my audience would be my classmates and my professor. This allowed some of my terms to not be defined in the long run.

My photo starts off with a black screen and harry potter like font. I wanted to use this in order to bring about nostalgia in people who have read the harry potter books. I also wanted to do this using Headwig’s theme for those that have only seen the movie but I went for a creative commons song that just felt magical. This song has a few seconds of louder volume at the beginning and end in order to “frame” the film. It lets the audience know beginning and end, I feel it is a convention for a blog like video.

Framing was also used in each of the frames. I decided not to stretch out the images for full screen as that would look rather odd and I wanted the artist’s work to be true to their proportions. To do this I just put the images on a black background, it doesn’t distract the viewers eye from the art work, in fact it guides their eye to the center. Framing is a great way to add empathizes and contrast to the film and its contents.

The purpose that I had for this film was to show the different conventions of a genera that I love, Harry Potter fan art film posters. I know it is a very specific genera however this made it easier to write about.

In making this video I also had to think about what my sequence would be, I decided to go with the generic throughout the years, chronological approach. This was because if people are already familiar, they will be able to recognize where the posters are for with less work.

I did not have to worry much about colour as the artist’s work was full of it already and I wouldn’t want to take away from their spotlight.

I used a lot of pathos not only in evoking nostalgic feelings but also with my own wording of things. There are several places where I say I love something or something makes me inspired and in my experience, this excitement can be contagious and engaging with the audience.

It was my hope to make the audience have their own sense of magic with all of these pieces, the music, the posters and the text together.

I needed my text to be multimodal as that is a fundamental concept of this class. I had to combine Visuals, Aural, Linguistics and Spatial arrangements.

My word choice wasn’t full of large words as I really would prefer this to be less distant and more close to my audience, this was another reason that I used the words I love and other emotion evoking words. This makes the audience think about what they love and rhetorical situations that they could apply the same concept for.

I used large sizes in order for my elements to be seen on a large screen as we are to be presentation this to the class.

I did not add any sound effects due to the lack of time that I had however the music would accomplish what I needed. When talking, I feel that we have a natural accent. Your voice will empathies what you feel is the most important in a sentence. I of course used my own voice and not a computer generated one again as I wanted the film to be personal in a way.

The artist’s images I used were unfortunately not under a creative commons license however, I am doing a commentary on these elements for an educational purpose. The song was found under the creative commons license.
