I have to be honest, I started this week with the thought, “what the hell are we supposed to be doing.”
I mean, I set out all the assignments and junk as per usual to keep myself organized and on track, but still had the, “ok well what the hell do I do now” feeling. This feeling is directed at the whole Agency project. I figured the first thing to do was organize with group members about it and see what’s what… maybe we could organize from there?
We got a Facebook chat rolling (which we learned from the radio show project to be a good idea) and started talking about how/what we wanted to do. Erin made up a google doc, and we brainstormed a lot of ideas. Eventually we have come to the decision to have our Agency be called, “Hit Me”, and it is essentially a house that Erin’s character, Veronica, bought and invited Stephanie, Tiffany, and my characters to live. We brought Lawrence back to life, and are creating a stronger love story between he and Victoire (my character.) At the same time, Erin’s character is a mastermind with Stephanie’s character as number two, and opened up a hit-man business. Lawrence, being a hit man, is the teacher and shows the ladies the tricks of the trade. Luring men into their grasp, then killing them. However, he becomes a bit jealous when Victoire becomes a bit TOO good at her job.
I created the wordpress as an addition to my ds106 blog. The web address is: the1agency.wordpress.com and the title of the website is (at least at the moment) Hit Me. I created the pages, and we all have begun to fill in the blanks. We all wrote resumes for our characters and are putting those on the site as well. I ended up writing the about page, and added a blurb to the contact page.
Shout out to Stephanie, by the way. She’s had a very tough time recently, and despite that has been doing a great job in keeping in contact with everyone and working as hard as she can. : )
No matter how quickly the ball has been rolling on this final project, I am still a bit fuzzy about what the, “whole point” of the thing is. Is this something the professors will tell us in due course? Am I missing something? I’ll have to stay tuned.
