This week was another fun one. I decided that instead of working in a group, that I would work alone since my schedule is so crazy and I have weird times to do things. I did 10 stars worth of assignments and I also did my video essay on Nancy Drew. This week I used a lot of iMovie, Freesounds.org, and YouTube to complete my assignments. I did two daily creates which were amusing as always.
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!
My name is Agent Reveal, here is my interview. I hope you feel like you know me better now….
Questions I answered:
1. Why is shaken better than stirred?
2. If I was being chased by a gorilla and I had to choose between running to a 7/11 or a manhole, which would I choose
3. What is my favorite prime number between 15 to 100?
4. If I had to choose between the hands of a baby of the feet of a baby, which would I pick?
5. When someone yawns, do I?
6. What is the meaning of my code name?
7. If I could be an exotic orange animal, what would I be?
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!
