How I Made The Stu Ped Story


I made the video in iMovie, my All Hail King Leo assignment is a good reference for this. I simply shot all the clips on my iPhone 6 and then imported the clips into iMovie. Then I just trimmed the clips and put them together to make the full video.


The audio was recored using the Voice Memos application on my iPhone 6. I then imported the audio into Audacity on my computer and cut the audio clips into one audio which was what I shared. My Sounds Of My Day assignment would be a good tutorial reference on how to use Audacity and the iPhone to put together a little audio story like this one.


The GIFs were videos that I originally shot onto my iPhone. I then imported the video to my computer and used the online tool Giphy to make the GIF files

You can literally just drag the video file into the “Upload” area and can then edit your GIF from there. Yes it is that easy. For more information on how to use Giphy, refer to the tutorial in my Messi Breaking Ankles assignment.


The poster was probably the easiest one to make from all of them. I used the Mac word processor Pages to create the missing poster from a template. The process was exactly the same as my Missing Person: Jesse Pinkman assignment.

He Who Procrastinates in DS106

This is a story about a poor DS106 student who did not properly heed the fair warning that was sent out by professor Polack before the start of the course. The student’s name is Stu Ped. Stu begins his first week of class by going to Dr. Polack’s DS106 course page to write down his assignments and being the under achiever that he is, Stu feels as if writing his homework for that week is progress enough and proceeds to spend his time doing anything but his DS106 work. Stu does what he does best, absolutely nothing.

As Stu screws around, he loses track of time. The days continue to go by and STILL, Stu has not started any sort of work on his DS106 homework for that week. It is now Sunday night and Stu suddenly realizes he needs to get started on his DS106 work. He does not stress out since he is confident that he can complete the work before midnight. After all, it is just an online class about digital storytelling right? How hard could it really be? Poor Stu Ped is about to learn a very harsh lesson tonight…

It is now 11:55pm, and Stu has not finished a single assignment for the week. Stu realizes that he has made a colossal mistake and he should have heeded the warnings of Dr Polack before the beginning of the course. Poor Stu spends the last 5 minutes before midnight in agony and must face the reality that he is going to get an F for the week.

It is now Monday morning and Stu is no where to be seen. No one can get in contact with Stu which prompts his friends and family to file a missing person report. There is speculation that he may of gone missing because of the shame he felt from failing his first week of DS106. The police department release this poster to the public in attempts to locate him. I guess Stu should of gotten his sh*t together..
