I’m ready for my close up Dr. Seuss remix


One day, Dr. Seuss decided that everyone on Earth had heard his story and he wanted to share them with others.¬† He sent the Cat in the Hat out in search of alien life to share his stories with. The search continues…….

For my second remix I remixed one of the assignments I did this week. For I’m ready for my close up we had to close in on somebody’s face and put it in a random place where they shouldn’t be. For the original assignment I put Arnold Schwarzenegger in space. For the remix¬† I had to “Dr. Seuss” it. I found a close up of the cat in the hat and put him space. I did the assignment the same way as the original. I used MS paint to crop the cat out of its original picture and placed it in the outer space picture.

This does not belong here (4 stars)


For this assignment we had to mash up two different movies in a way that would make sense. I went with E.T. and Batman. They both have iconic parts that have to do with the sky. In E.T. they have E.T. flying across the sky and in Batman they have the iconic bat symbol. I made a picture of the bat symbol shining on the moon while E.T. flies across. I did this with MS paint. I cut the picture of the bat symbol out of another picture and placed it over the E.T. picture.

Ron Swanson Compilation

For this assignment we had to make a compilation of one of our favorite characters from a movie or TV show. My favorite character has to be Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation. He’s a anti-government libertarian that happens to work for the government which is a big part of what makes his character so funny. An ongoing joke with him is that he works at the government so he can not do anything and make the government come to an end. When I was looking for clips of Ron Swanson I found a lot of other compilation videos on YouTube so it wasn’t hard to find a bunch of random clips of Ron Swanson and put them together. I went through a handful of different videos and found the ones I thought were funny and put them together using windows movie maker. It was hard narrowing down which clips I wanted to use since they were all so funny.

Arnie in Space (4 star)

arnie in space

Arnold Schwarzenegger was walking down the street one day when a group of young kids began doing a bunch of poor Arnie impressions. “GET TO THE CHOPPER”, “I’LL BE BACK”, they yelled. This struck a chord with Arnold and he said that he has had enough with all of the cliche impressions that people would not let go of. No matter where he went, he couldn’t escape it. People wouldn’t even have a serious conversation with him, they would just say quote after quote. He became engulfed in rage and screamed at the top of his lungs. His rage propelled him through the atmosphere into outer space where he could finally be free of all these bad impressions. Finally, Arnold was at peace and could enjoy life in the solitude of outer space away from all this bad acting.

In this assignment we had to take a close up of a person’s face and place it over a random background image. I wasn’t sure who’s face to use until I saw this picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger screaming, which I thought would be perfect. I figured that outer space would be a pretty random place for him to be since, well, it’s a random place for anybody to be. I found the pictures on google and used the paint.net program to crop the images together.
