Mashup Assignments

Two Movies, One Line

For this mashup assignment, you must pick one line from two movies and combine them into one line. You can choose to have one line be a response to the other. You can follow the example video and start the second line on the last word of the first line. You can choose to do this assignment in any way you want, just be creative with it.

Before and After

Use a video that you created in DS106 and blend it with a movie of similar content. Use Movie Maker or another editing tool to splice and dice a scene(s) from the two movies so they appear as one. The new combined video should be portrayed as before and after or is it after and before? You decide. The video should be between 3-4 minutes. Get creative.

Mash Thyself, Before Ye Trash Thyself

This assignment in pretty simple, yet very powerful.  Mash-up your own work!  Take at least 3 things you’ve done this semester, and combine them together to make one cohesive thing.

Talking Animal Mashup

Combine separate previously recorded audio and video files to create a video mashup of a talking pet. Use Audacity or another audio recording software and Movie Maker or another video editing software. The segments from each should be edited to deliver your message from the talking pet.

For this assignment, I used an audio assignment of my host character giving a morning message to the village people. I also had a video of my dog barking while I was talking to him, which was used as part of a video assignment. The original audio and video segments were uploaded to Movie Maker. Both were edited so that the pet’s voice is that of the host character (or yourself) delivering a message, telling a story, or reading poetry. Be creative!


For this assignment you are to mash together a video of clips or photos of your favorite TV character or personaility. For mine I chose Ron Swanson.

This Doesn’t Belong Here

For this asignment you need to mash up two different iconic movie scenes. However, you should aim to be as subtle as possible. Perhaps a famous prop that simply doesn’t belong or a character that looks a little out of place.

Mashing Friends and Emojis

For this assignment you are to take a picture of one of your friends or just a person that is in the moment doing something exactly like an emoji and then mash them together for comparison.

10 Second Throwback Mashup

This assignment is a 10 second mashup of throwbacks. Use two or more songs to create one soundtrack. The songs cannot be anything recent, be creative with this assignment. Upload your song to Soundcloud. 

Making A Song

Make your own song using other lyrics. Complete this assignment by combining the lyrics from at least 5 different songs in order to make a song with flowing lyrics. This song should be at least 2 minutes long. 

A Picture A Day

You’ve probably seen those videos where people take a photo of themselves every day for a year or seven years or some crazy length of time. Make a DS106 version! Take a photo of yourself every day for a week (7 days, 5 if you’re lazy), and put them into a video. Try to make your face line up in the video for a seamless transition.
