For this assignment, I did a holiday mashup and remixed it by adding Fonz from Happy Days.
This Movie Mashup (4.5 stars) asks you to find a movie you like, find one that it is compared to, and then create a poster that includes the two. Well, Stranger Things isn’t a movie, but it does have so many 80s references, so I chose that.
We know Stranger Things pays homage to lots of famous 80s movies, and one of those is E.T.. I found one article that lists every single 80s film referenced in their show. Eleven is compared to E.T.. The article says, “Eleven is like E.T, lost and then taken in and protected by a bunch of kids.” I actually had never thought of it that way, but it totally makes sense.
I found two posters I wanted to work with.
I’ll admit I actually haven’t seen past season 1. I’m the worst, I know, but my husband got so far in it that I didn’t want to have him rewatch it. Now, I’m just missing out. Anyway, but what from what I do know, I don’t think that Eleven is in the street with her friends. I’m imaging they are looking up for her (E.T.)
Well, that’s it. Here is my final product. I used a photoshop app on my phone to create it. What do you think?
You mean I can include my dog? Done. I’ll take any opportunity that allows me to video or take pictures of my pups, so when I saw the Talking Dog Mashup (4 stars), I knew I had to do it.
My frenchie, Frankie, doesn’t really bark, so I had to figure out a way to get her to move her mouth. She is pretty much the Kanye West of dogs; she never smiles. Anyway, I was eating an apple trying to come up with a way, when I saw her licking her lips because she wanted a piece. Yep, you guessed it, I gave her a piece of it to get her to “talk.”
I also decided to employ my husband during the process, and I spoke for Frankie.
I used an app called InShot to edit all the pieces together.
Here is the masterpiece. Ha.
