So I have this assignment due.... well, tomorrow ^^ I was wondering if any of you have any ideas....

Basically I have to make some sort of video that deals with anything to deal with computers. It has to be somewhat educational, very funny and entertaining.

All at once.

It really doesnt need to be long at all, he didnt give a time limit or anything, it just has to make my teacher laugh.

So alot of the other kids in my class are blowing something up or skating around on keyboards or something stupid like that (Where's the humor in this? No idea....), but I want something a little better. Plus I have no keyboard skating talents what so ever blink.gif

Honestly I have no idea what to do, I have a limited amount of people (AKA, me, my dad and possibly my friend Lynne) and a very small time period to get this done. I was wondering if the creative minds of my fellow Matazonians had any ideas?

Maybe you could put your own twist on what life would be like without the internet?

That was one person's idea of what it would be like, you could show what it would be like to not be able to procrasinate from your homework or something.

Show bits of a lot of random Internet videos, like "All Your Base" or "Numa Numa Dance." Then make up some silliness about how such videos have benefited humanity. Write a bogus proof that shows that one of these videos holds the cure for cancer. Play the Windows Noise Symphony (I believe it's on www.albinoblacksheep.com.) I'm really not that creative, but maybe this stuff will help. Best of luck! smile.gif

Ast. My dad had the same idea when I asked him about what I should do. I think it'd be super awesome to do something like that, but where's the real educational-ness in it? I guess I could get by with it, because my teacher is just like that, but Eh. I guess it would turn out better than alot of other people's videos.

VIMH- I thought about doing that too, I thought it was a really cool idea, but my friend decided she didnt want to help me so I didnt really have enough people to do it with

The thing I was about to do untill I decided I didnt want to was do like a puppet show with different computer components and for an extra bit of hilarity I thought about writing "SONY" on a CD and having it tell about how its an evil computer distroying peice of junk! But.... Now I'm not really in the mood for doing silly puppet voices.

So much for getting this done.... I need to stop procrastinating blink.gif

Kitty- "Hello and welcome to how to use a computer, or as we on the internet call it, The Porn Box.

First what you need to do is turn on the computer. You can do this in several ways:

1. Press the Power Button on the front of your computer box thing.

2. Yell loudly until the computer turns on, out of fear.

3. Hit yourself in the head with a hammer until you think the computer is on.

Now for getting online. If you are on a dialup connection please stop reading this and set your computer on fire. High speed connection is the only type of connection the internet allows. If you use a modem, your computer fools you into thinking your computer is online, but in reality you're being eaten by a bear.

There are many ways to view the internet. If you are using Netscape please stop reading this and set your computer on fire. Using Netscape is like trying to stop a speeding train with your face. It is a stupid, stupid idea.

That's all for this week's lesson, tune in next week when I show you how to point AND click."

So what did you finally decide to do for the project and what did your teacher think? I want to know the juicy details! laugh.gif

Hah! biggrin.gif Well the night before it was due I ended up just telling people that they need to download firefox, where to download firefox, and then where to download AdAware and Spybot to keep their computer nice and cleeaann (I dont mess with antiviruses, my dad deals with that....) and then I threw in Mata's christmas animation with lots of title screens giving the Matazone URL and lots of encouragement to come here. And then I threw in The Egg Song....

Though have you ever tried to record a monitor/tv with a video camera? You see the stupid line scrolling up the screen, I got that really bad.... and I couldnt focus that camera in too well to the animations so I had to read the Christmas special one.... I dont do it too well, its just not right with a british accent....

Anyway so I brought that to school and then I ended up not being able to show it due to my teacher having to do something else in someone's class for a bit, and then a couple other people did videos before I could.... So I took my tape home and added a little Portable Memory puppet show to it (Which is really corny tongue.gif I like it) and I ended up really needing to edit it alot, so I was editing and then my mum kicked me out of her room (where the computer with the video editing software is) so I couldnt finish it, let alone put it on a CD so I could take it in x.x; Sooo.... I never really got to present it so I dont know what my teacher thought, But I'm trying to finish it today.... My teacher really doesnt care if its late, or so he said. So yay for me!

Best of luck getting a good score on it, then. It sounds amusing and practical (and it shamelessly promotes Matazone,) so cheers!

Shameless indeed tongue.gif

I didnt get to show it to my class though, so hopefully I can convince my teacher to let me show the class when we get back in school happy.gif

Plenty of time to work on it, then. Best of luck making it look cooler than your classmates' movies. smile.gif
