Way Down in the Hole-Lotta Video
Over a two week period, we were required to do a plethora of video assignments totaling at least 16 stars worth! We also were required to do at least two daily creates each.
The introductions which I had done this week included my two posts for a video assignment on
*Daily Creates Included my Parking Poet Lauret Blog –
In this blog I created my own poem about the woe’s of parking.
*My Internet Memories of Yester_Year blog in which I detailed my very first experiences with the internet overall.
My Other daily create included a Sound Map
This daily create caused me to be more aware of my surroundings and it was interesting to see the sounds I detailed on paper.
*The four assignments I did included the Return to the Silent Films Era Assignment worth 4 1/2 stars.
Which I detailed in my Child’s Play blog. I used a horror film for this choice because it allowed me to respond better with more emotion being evoked from seeing something that is frightening by minus the sound. I always say that one’s imagination could be your worst enemy in these cases.
*The Second assignment was the Movie Trailer Mash-Up. For this assignment I wanted it to be comedic. I choose the old 80’s footloose dance compilation trailer and a dance scene with Terry Crews from the movie White Chicks.
I choose to play off of the concept of dance, and I choose one of the funniest scenes from the movie where actor Terry Crews has a dance monologue in the movie White Chicks.
*The Third assignment was the Video Essay – for this Assignment I choose some of the earlier most impressions I got from The Wire.
Last but now least, I was instructed to do a Swede of the Wire which I took video from the Season 3, Episode 11, Death of Stringer Bell.
Overall Feelings for this week I felt as if I was overwhelmed, I still had a lot of technical difficulties with video editing especially when it came to using my own video in which I had uploaded.
I think that basis was to start early as I did not have any issues with any of my other videos except this last one. I realize that one needs to be patient in addition, I look forward to using all of my skills and attributes that I have acquired over these weeks for audio, visual, and video to add this to the creation of my final project for The Wire.
