I am finally out of isolation. I was moving out last night which is why I am doing my summary a day late.
This week you really wanted us to focus on the storytelling aspect of our videos. I’m not gonna lie to you this was kinda tough for me. I am pretty bad at editing and have no sense when it comes storytelling. I try to keep my videos pretty simple and clean. I feel however that they end up boring and meaningless.
Many of my videos this semester have include friends and people that matter to me. That’s because my friends and family are a big part of my life. I wanted to show that in my assignments this semester.
For my video assignments this week I chose a fun one and one that went along with our theme. The fun one was a video I did with a close friend and mentor of mine. It consisted of finding out what he eats throughout his day. A big part of why I chose him specifically for this assignment is because he’s a professional soccer player. I didn’t mention that in the blog because I wanted to say that on here.
The assignment I did that went really well with our theme was titled, Of Most Importance. This assignment consisted of some of the most important and influential people in my life. I tried to make this video super simple in order to highlight them. It was also my favorite edit within these last two weeks. Oh, it also included Chelsea who is not a person, but one of the most important things in my life.
Another reason why I kept this edit super simple was because I wanted to keep it real. That means no background music and If you know me, you know I love background music.
Lastly, I wrote about my idea for my final project. What do you think?
