I kind of lost my sanity by the end of the audio segment on this commercial, but that’s because I was so excited to sell you the “do everything” device (AKA the cell phone). It was really fun to put together this one, I used final cut pro to compile my voiceover, background music, and gif for the visual. Enjoy it!
For this assignment, the goal was to create a sort of small video as to how my day usually goes on a day to day basis. And because of the pandemic, it’s incredibly boring so I can’t really record things I do all day because it’s basically the same thing all day. Other than that, I used Final Cut Pro and various audio segments online to put all of this together and I think I did a pretty good job with the video filming.
I really enjoyed this week overall. I found doing the assignments for this week not too tasking in terms of workload, but also a lot of fun to complete and it gave me a chance to be creative in what I wanted to show on my blog for this class, specifically there were a lot of assignment bank assignments (1, 2, 3) that really highlights some passion projects of mine that I really enjoyed and loved to complete. The video essay on the title sequence in Baby Driver was also a lot of fun to complete as I love the movie and learning about what makes for good video editing was a fantastic part of this week that a learned a lot about. Overall, this week was very enjoyable and I look forward to doing something similar next week! You can find my TDCs below.
For this assignment I attempt to describe the articles I am using as evidence for my literature review in my Intro to American Studies class this semester, describing how conspiratorial thinking has led to the riotous mob and violence on Jan. 6th at the Capitol building. It’s a bit of a mess, but I hope you learned something new!
This video assignment was a lot of fun to complete, I really love the movie Baby Driver (2017), and this assignment gave me an excuse to share my love for it with you all and describe how this movie comes together for a fantastic thriller. I again used OBS to capture the movie clips and my voiceover for them.
For this assignment I used OBS to record my built-in webcam and used my very vibrant setting of my dorm room (very sarcastic) to film my usual workout routine for mornings and evenings. Enjoy!
This week’s emphasis on video is right up my alley. I think video editing and video in general is a fantastic way for telling a story, and only one scene in a movie popped into my mind when I read we had to create a video essay on editing and such: Baby Driver’s title sequence. This scene has such rich video editing and purposeful story planning that I could not talk about it all in one video, but I tried my hardest. Here’s the video essay:
This week was a much needed break from the time consumption that this class really does well at achieving for me. Apart from that much needed break with the reduced workload I found it a lot of fun to listen to mine and other’s radio shows and take part in the tweet along for it! I also really enjoyed reworking some past assignments (1, 2) that were, in my opinion, heavily outdated. I think the ideas and brainstorm I did with my project ideas could be a fun way to explore these upcoming weeks, but I guess we’ll just have to see! This week was again a lot of fun and making the story out of my TDCs was also so much fun!
Since I last shared my favorite photo, I have a new favorite photo, sorry to my extremely cute nephew Curran. My new favorite photo is a photo from a photoshoot my girlfriend and I did for Valentine’s Day, and it came out really well! Definitely Christmas card material for sure.
I really rushed through such a fantastic assignment a few weeks ago with building my own Game of Thrones house, and I had a lot of fun with it last time so I wanted to do it again! Here’s my newest house, house motto, and house sigil, it was again a lot of fun to play around with. I really like the aesthetic of the sword piercing into the sun on the background of the sigil, it’s a cool touch for me!
