For my first video assignment, I choose the assignment entitled Return to the Silent Era this assignment was worth 4 1/2 stars. I enjoyed this one because it allowed me to get creative and choose a throw back movie, one of my horror favorites “Child’s Play 2.”
It is amazing to how reducing the sound on a scary video like this was more effective.
I choose the horror genre because I believe most horror movie trailers are meant to scare you with images and not necessarily sound. Therefore, I thought what could be more terrifying than a killer doll possessed by an evil human spirit!! (Can’t go wrong right???)
I began my battle by using the software called Clip Grab. This tool allowed me to search for the trailer of my choice on youtube then, I selected the clip of the video I wanted, and the software through Clip Grab allowed me to convert and save the file to my desktop. Once in there I managed to edit and paste and add captions as well as take out the color of the video with the movie maker black and white effect. I took out the sound by going to the “Volume Edit option” in the upper left hand corner of the “Edit Video” Tools and I moved the volume bar all the way down to mute.. This allowed for my sound to be taken out.
Once I was done with this process I had to save it as an .MP4 file by clicking on the “Save as YouTube,” format which cut the amount of time I had to make a video in half!
After saving my video to my desktop, I was able to upload it to my YouTube Account…this giving me the finished product below:
