Two days after I opened the my agency (JBrown’s Law Agency), I got a mystery case. I never had this kind of case. But as I looked through the evidences, I found the several commend things.
First, every photos those were given, there are Groom and the mysterious man. Based on the simple fact, I could conclude that they seems to be well know each other. Or, in the other hand, Groom was threaten for long time.
Second, the two letters those were provided, there are Russian. It seems so awkward to put Russian in the middle of the letters. Why did Misha write Russian and English together? What is she trying to tell? One thing I am sure about is the sentences those were written in Russian are important and key point of the letters. That’s why she wrote it in Russian so no one would figure out.
“Розы красные, Noircat черный” It’s from the first postcard that I received. Since I could not read Russian, I translate it into English. “Roses are red, Noircat is black” Is this code? It makes me more confuse.
The letter that Misha wrote to Bo, there was Russian, too. “Человек ушел. Я обещаю вам это. Его вещи ушли , тоже, и он никогда не вернется .” I also translated. “The man was gone. I promise you that. His stuff is gone, too, and he will never return.” Who is he? Where did he go?
After I received the case, I got so many questions and no answer to it. Who is the man attacked Groom in Los Angeles? What is connection between Groom and the man? Why is he asking about Bond? From now on, I got so many works to do. It would be really busy day.
I did some photoshop with the provided evidence, so it would be much easier to see those later on.
For one of the assignments of this week, I chose to do Character Resume(3 points) for John Brown. This assignment is to create a resume by using either Microsoft Word, creating your own webpage, or using a website like LinkedIn.
I chose to use Microsoft Word to write John Brown’s resume.
This is the screenshot of the resume, you also can see if you click John Brown’s resume above.
It’s been long time since I’ve been writing resume, but it was really great time to remind how to write resume!
As John Brown is starting his own agency, he thought that he would need a business card to give out. So, by using create your own business card (2 points) assignment, I made him one.
I tried to make simple as possible, because John likes simple thing. I used only colors of white and black to make simple and well visible. Also, he likes those two colors.
To make this business card, I used Powerpoint. I inserted the image of balance scale and then put some informations into it. After I finished with inserting text, I screenshot the powerpoint slide.
I made new logo for JBrown’s Law Agency. I was inspired by the assignment called Design to Shock (4 points). To create this logo, I used 3 pictures combined by using Adobe Photoshop and put some text on to it.
Since John is lawyer, he loves the quote that would make clients to trust him 100%. As he search for quotes that have strong meaning, he found this quote, “good lawyers know the law; great layers know the judge” and he thinks that it would fit with the images of the gavel and balance scale. The point of putting foggy effect on to two pictures is that he would clear the fogginess, which represents false charge. In other words, the propose of creating this logo was to show that he would find the way to get out of the problem.
This assignment was fun and easy. The assignment called You’re A Pinteresting Character (2 points), was to build a Pinterest page of at least 20 pins for a character of mine. I really enjoyed to creating John Brown’s Pinterest board. It was my first time using it so I had fun time of learning it and activate the board.
When I first got into Pinterest website, I had to register for it in order to start. So I put John Brown’s Gmail, that I created few weeks ago, and put informations about him, such as name, age and gender. And then next step was choosing at least five followers that things that are I interest about. I chose desserts, gluten free, beards, sandwiches, Men’s suit, Luxury cars, and Men’s Appeals, the things that John would interest.
After that, I created a board to choose at least 20 pins that are related to John and what would John likes.
These are some screenshots of John Brown’s Pinterest.
Last video assignment for this week! After I completed with the video assignments from Assignment Bank, I had to create an interview show of my character. Among four interview questions video, I chose Maggi’s video and then answered it.
To complete this assignment, I downloaded the interview questions video from Youtube using 4K Video Downloader and then uploaded it on iMovie to edit it. Since I’ve been using iMovie for several assignments, it was easy to put my answers and her questions together.
I used black and white affect on the video, also I pitched down my voice since John Brown is a man. When I first saw the description of this assignment, it seems really hard and would take long time to finish it but it wasn’t that hard to complete it. I loved it!
Do you know how much John Brown hates to read any books? For this assignment, I decided to show his hate of reading.
The assignment called 5 Seconds of Fame (2 points) was to create 5 seconds video. Since it only has to be 5 seconds, I used Vine to complete this assignment. Before I do this, I had hard time to figure out how should I do this assignment. But after idea, it was really easy and simple assignment.
Before I upload it to Youtube, I opened with iMovie to put title page in front of the video, after that process, I uploaded it to Youtube and then I was going to put background music, but realized that it would be hard to hear the scream so I did not put it.
The last scene is he just gave up with reading and just lied down on the couch to relax.
The assignment called Inanimate Motion (3 points) was to make an inanimate object to move by using power of video. I really wanted to do this assignment so I was keep thinking how I am going to relate to this to John Brown. I realized that it would be great to relate this assignment to his favorite book characters, which are Little Prince and rose. I did not have any figures of them so I printed the images of them and then put them on to the toilet paper tubes.
To do this assignment, I supposed to take photos and then put them together. Instead of doing that, I recorded the movement of Little Prince by pausing recording. After completed recording, I uploaded it to iMovie to put some texts to it. After that, as always, I uploaded it to Youtube and then put background to it.
As I worked through the video assignments, I realized that most of the related story of John Brown is that he loves sweet food and he has sweet teeth. So for this assignment, I chose to focus on his past. The days after when his mom and Mark (his step-father) got remarried. The assignment called This is my story (3 points) was perfect for telling the past story of John Brown.
I would not going to tell the story of his past (if I tell you the video I made would be useless). It was easy and fun assignment. I recorded myself with the camera that was attached to my computer and than uploaded to youtube and then put background music to it. Making a video did not take too long, put writing a script too me a while. But it was pretty enjoyable assignment.
