1. I loved creating captions for each individual box when placing my mini graphic novel together. It was challenging to come up with decent phrases, but I managed to string together an interesting story about my pet cat over the Christmas holidays. I disliked the fact that the was not much inspiration around my local environment to create a story outside of my house. I was able to include the day when I got to see an Olympic torch exchange take place, which was very exciting to take pictures of and talk about.
2. I would change the colours and contrast of my photos to add special effects. This could have made it easier to create dialogue for each box, as the photos would be slightly distorted.
3. This type of assignment does not fit into my type of learning preference as I mainly enjoy writing articles and reviews based upon other media related topics. Creating a mini graphic novel was fun, but I have always found the concept of Journalism to be quite interesting.
4. I would tell students to have a large variety of pictures before setting up any kind of storyboard or layout. This will allow students to have a decent selection of similar images (provided that they are taken around similar times) to work with.
