This semester has been really fun and I am definitely going to miss this class. Even though it was a lot of work, I really enjoyed all of it. This final project was also a lot of work, but it was a ton of fun to do. I knew I wanted to use the ground beef evidence, CDE evidence, and a character created. I also wanted to utilize some of the different types of media that I haven’t spent a lot of time with.
To summarize my evidence–
I found a note while I was in Katora this week and decoded the first letters to find a message asking for help because the government was trying to kill the author. I also found that the note-writers name was Sam Miller.
This lead me to do some research and finding Sam Miller’s business card and an invoice for 20,000 pounds of ground beef. Both of these were really confusing, but it was helpful to note that Sam was a genetic engineer for CDE. This seemed all too coincidental.
I found some security footage of CDE and saw someone running away (could it have been Sam??) and then a lot of police, could that have been the government??
Finally, I found a Memo and some emails. I think that whatever Sam was working on went horribly, horribly wrong. They were trying to extend human life, but I think instead they shortened it. There is now a superbug that is killing people left and right. I think the government tried to kill her and her lab partners to stop the spread, but I think they were too late. The virus is spreading and I don’t think there is a way to stop it. The symptoms of the virus are staring at the night sky, eating copious amounts of ground beef, and wandering. After three to five days anyone infected just disappears. I think they all have to be walking somewhere, I just don’t know where. I am worried I might be next.
To make all of these assignments I used Canva, online templates, iMovie, and Gmail. The best part about this was that I was sitting next to my friend Ethan while I worked on most of it and he kept looking over and asking me what I was doing. He said “at one point you made an acrostic letter about the government killign you, an invoice for 20,000lbs of groudn beef, a memo, and a bunch of emails. I am so confused abotu this class”. Which is how i think most people in my life feel about it. However, I have loved working in this class. I put a lot of work into this final project and wanted it to make a cohesive story. I hope that it all fits together into the larger narrative.
I want to help find a cure for this virus, but for now, this is The End.
I think I figured it out. And I think this is the end. I knew there was something fishy going on at the CDE and so I decided to go there and investigate myself. I snuck through the gates on the back of a truck and poked around the office. I am really glad that no one caught me, but I also don’t think that there is a lot more on peoples mind right now. While I was there I found this memo stapled to someone’s bulletin board.
Then, by luck, I found Sam Miller’s desk. I know I shouldn’t have, but I looked on her computer. There wasn’t a password and I needed to know more information. I found these emails to someone named Evelyn. That is the same name that was in the letter I originally found.I think this might be the end. I heard news reports of people disappearing and didn’t’ think anything about it, but now I am worried that things are way more serious than I thought. I think they tried to mess with the balance of nature and ended up with a super virus that is killing everyone. This woman Sam Miller is the reason that everyone is dying. The government has been hiding this and covering it up, but I won’t let this stand. Everyone needs to know what is coming– The End. I don’t know how to prepare for it. I don’t know how to stop the spread. All I know are the symptoms and the start, and hopefully, that will be enough.
We need to band together to beat this. We need to try and fight this. We need to survive. I am signing off for now, but I’m hoping to find out more information. Hopefully, this isn’t the last you hear from me, but if it is, it’s been a good ride. Stay safe.
I found some online footage fo the CDE’s surveillance footage from the day that the meat delivery was made. I combed through all the clips and found a couple I thought were interesting. I want to try to identify one of the guys in the clip with the boxes. I also noticed you could see a person running away in the top left corner of the third clip. I wonder if that is Sam? Or someone else. Also, what are those cop cars in the fourth clip?? Do they know what is going on?
I did a little digging and found some stuff on the Sam Miller person who wrote that note I found…
The first thing I found was this business card. I think she might have something to do with what is going on with The End. She works for the Center for Dominant Evolution as a Genetic Engineer and maybe that is how she knew too much? In her letter, she said she was working on something that was going to lengthen human life and I wonder if that was something she knew too much about? Would the government really be killing people because of that? Did something go wrong?
The other piece of evidence I found was an invoice for a bunch of ground beef? I don’t know what that is all about. It looks like the CDE bought it from some wholesale distributor of ground beef. It is under Sam’s name and said that “someone named Sam” was going to meet them to accept the delivery. Could we assume that its the same Sam??? But also what would the CDE need 20,000 pounds of ground beef for?
I will keep looking up some more evidence. I’ll let you know what I find.
