Instead of doing a character description on a character from a movie, I decided to do my character, Agent Reveal. I used clips from movies to describe what I do through video. I thought this was a cool assignment and really allowed me to show who my character was through other movies.
The movie that I decided to spoil was Passengers. I recently just watched it and after watching it I was disappointed. But, now that I reflect it was actually a really good movie. It was fun to guess why they woke up in the beginning and then become very shocked on why they actually woke up. If you want a quick run down on the movie, then here it is!
For this video essay, I decided that I was going to do it on Nancy Drew. She is probably one of my most favorite because she is so smart and is clever. For the essay portion I decided to focus on a lot of the techniques that were displayed in the Every Frame a Painting videos. I focused on the Shot Reverse Shots that allowed you to see both sides of the conversation and caught viewers attentions. Also, techniques such as ensemble staging and movement that was also utilized to draw attention to the clip. I never realized how much each technique was used until I really payed attention. Enjoy!
This assignment was probably the most challenging I have done. I did a similar assignment back in high school with power point. This time I used iMovie and it was challenging to line everything up perfectly. I think that if I were to do it over again, I wouldn’t do an acoustic version but instead do the original.
The toughest thing about his assignment was finding a good video to put music to. Then I remembered for the longest time, there was a Peacock Spider commercial on TV and remembered that they do a funny little dance. That is when I decided to put music to this video. I do not want to give away anymore spoilers but this assignment was funny! Hope you enjoy!
This was a random and fun assignment. I found 5 random words of things that randomly came to mind, put some goofy free music from freesound.org and mashed it together. The hardest part was finding music that kinda fit the theme. I like this random assignment and would do it 10 more times!
Since the images would not show up, I took some screen shots to show what I did. I have walked into stores many times knowing that they don’t have security systems. They are thousands of dollars. I see the signs hanging up and realize a lot of people probably think it is for real. So I made an amazon ad for these signs.
The year is 1900. One of my favorite things to do is imagine what the future is like. Where cats are smarter than dogs. Maybe, even one day, a woman will run for president. But I am sure in the 2000’s a woman will hold much more power then we do now. She will make a great contender. I am unsure if she will win or not, but I imagine she will be going up against a bunch of men. I am sure men will not change but woman will advance and become stronger and more powerful.
AHH! This assignment was so much fun. I played it three times and it was more and more fun each time. I think it is cool how they can have a program like this that guesses the images as you draw them. I think that everyone should play it if they can!
