Digital Literacies: Tinkering Assignment 6

I didn’t know what to do for my last assignment and I kept searching on the website, until I came across something that caught my eye; the Storytelling Through Text assignment! I always find myself watching the text stories that appear as ads from Hooked when I’m bored because I’m always very curious to know what happens in the end, and I enjoy them somehow. So, this inspired me to create a horror text story. I reached out to my friend Halla and told her the plot of the story, then we texted over iMessage and I screen-recorded the chat from my laptop using QuickTime Player, which was an app I already had. Then I uploaded the video to iMovie (also an app I already had) to modify the speed as I thought it was too slow (which made it boring), then saved the video on my desktop. I could not upload the video here as the file was not supported so I uploaded it to Youtube, trimmed a part of it and then embedded it here. The story was inspired from the ones I read on Hooked, it was not real, and we did not use a script; we did it freestyle. I’ve always wanted to try this, so I’m glad this assignment gave me the motivation to do it. It was also my first time uploading a video to Youtube and using iMovie. I did not really do something that required advanced skills but I’m happy I got myself more familiar with the features on each one. Also, it’s open-ended, so tell me what you think happened to my friend Halla in the comments!
