Wire Video Essay: Bunny and Carcetti

To do my video essay on the Wire, I utilized the scenes from episode 11 of season 3, where Carcetti questions Bunny’s motives behind Hamsterdam. While the most memorable moment of this episode would no doubt be Stringer’s death, I still thought there were plenty of meaningful and artistic moments throughout the episode. I used Windows Movie Maker to edit the clips together and overlay a narration. This is where I finally came across one of the programs main limitations. In certain parts of the video, the audio/video come out of sync. While my narration isn’t affected, it’s still pretty annoying to see. I fixed it up as much as I could, but there was only so much I could do with the files I had. Overall I hope it doesn’t detract from the quality of the analysis.

Difficult Rating: 5 stars
