DS106 Showcase

Greetings fellow students, my name is Edward Creeper. Today, I have been tasked with finding the very best works from all semester long in DS106. There have been so many good projects created thus far, so this was not an easy decision. But, take a look below for my choices, and as always, keep it creepy!

This first piece on my showcase is this post, from ds106.forkinall.com. I thought that this was a very creative way to go about completing the ‘love at first shot’ assignment. Not only is there a backstory to the photo, but there was also great detail used to show us how the picture was found and assignment was completed. And, I do believe that the birds are in love as well!

Next up is this post, from kaitlinmarie.net. This was back when all of the very creative radio shows were happening. I chose this post, because it is obvious that there was a lot of effort put into creating the radio show promos, and I think they look very cool. The promos were a great way to get the word out about their show, and create a bit of competition for the Edward Creeper Show!

The third piece on my showcase is this post, from mikesspookyds106.com. This post ended up on my showcase, because it was a very clever way to go about showing off their host character, and the video that was made was very funny and creative. Besides the video itself, there was a lot of information about how they went about completing the assignment and creating the video. This may have been my favorite submission that I have seen all year.

The next piece on my showcase is this post, from theaaronadventure.com. This was a video assignment, and required two movies having their scenes mashed together. I chose this post, because the transitions were very well done, and the two movies together created some very funny moments.

The final piece on my showcase is this post, from deathbyds106.com. This post was from way back in week 2 of DS106. This piece ended up on my showcase, because it was a very creative assignment which allowed us to hear what a phone call between the author and herself would sound like.  This was very well done, and was even more impressive as the class was still very young at that point.

So, there you have it. The best of the best from all 15 weeks of DS106. I do hope that you will all stick around and take a look at the final project that is being created to help you all become more acquainted with me.

Weekly Showcase for Week 8

Greetings fellow students of ds106,

My name is Edward Creeper, and I am the host of the Edward Creeper Show. You will hear much more from me when you tune into ds106 radio this week. Until then, I have been selected this week to give a summary of some of the best works from other students. Last week was all about the radio show, so this showcase will be focusing primarily on that. Let’s begin.

The first piece on my showcase is this post, from emorelleum.com. I have chosen this post, because of the level of work shown, and the detail provided. Not only have they shown what their final product sounds like, but they also broke it down into different pieces, and explained the work and process that went into each of them. Their ‘horrible host’ theme is also of interest to me, as I am a host myself. I certainly hope that I would not be featured on their radio show, however.

Next up is this post, from deathbyds106.com. I may be a bit biased, as this person was on the team that helped produce the Edward Creeper Show, but I like that this post goes into detail about the progress and struggles that were encountered along the way. It also goes to show that a lot of work goes into the production of these radio shows, including the Edward Creeper Show.

The third piece on my showcase is this post, from catscarnival.com. I chose this post, because there is a lot of detail provided on how their radio show came together from beginning to end. They also explained how they went about creating segments for their show, and any challenges they ran into. And, they have their own twitter account and poster to advertise their radio show, which is something that I think is very smart.

The next piece on my showcase is this post, from assilemarim.net. The post nicely summarizes all of the work that was required during week 8. It is also well organized and is easy to follow, instead of having everything in your face all at once. Their radio show idea is similar to what you will hear on the Edward Creeper Show, so it will be interesting to see if there is any overlap.

The final piece on my showcase is this post, from forkinall.com. I chose this post, mainly because of the design work that helps advertise their Smooth and Spooky Variety Hour radio show. This post also goes into some detail about how their radio show was made, and what kind of work went into it.

So, there you have it. The best of the best from week 8. I hope you enjoyed this showcase, and I certainly do hope that you will tune in to the Edward Creeper Show this week on ds106 radio.
