This week was alright. Still super busy with all my other classes, so making time for all this work is hard. I created 12 stars worth of video assignments, and they weren’t really too hard. It took me the longest to figure out IMovie and to download my videos from my IPhone to google drive. The first assignment I did was a cooking show. It was really fun to do because I really didn’t have to do any of the work, I just made my boyfriend do it! hahaha The second assignment I created was the story with no dialogue, and that just came to me when I woke up cause I hate getting out of bed. The last assignment I created was a 30 second documentary of my character Solenya’s antics. All of these videos I took with my phone and edited them on IMovie. I uploaded them all to youtube for the whole world to see too! I think my favorite video is the cooking show cause that’s just funny.
For this assignment, I created a 30 second documentary of Solenya in his day. I had my friend curtis play him after class ended. First he is looking over his minerals and potion materials, next he’s making sure that the potion he’s about to drink has all the right levels of the ingredients he needs, and finally he injects the water with the potion and transports to a foreign land….right outside jepson. We had a lot of fun with this and we definitely laughed!
I created the movie with the camera on my IPhone, and then I used IMovie again to edit it all together. I used the beginning start up over the actual video again because it’s still my favorite, and the ending credits are just me and curtis. For the audio, I used mp3juices.cc, and I used the song of an hour of spooky music and magical music. I used the music about 34 minutes into the hour long song though.
For this assignment, for 4 and 1/2 stars, I created a story with no dialogue. I thought of it when I was getting out of bed and I was like I really don’t wanna leave to go to class, so I thought, hell, this is going to be my story. I filmed all the way from waking up, to walking to class, while I was in class, when I left class, and I couldn’t film myself back in my bed cause I had to make this, so I pretended the couch in jepson was my destination. When I really thought about it, the couch was the same thing cause i’ve slept on the jepson couch plenty of times.
I filmed with my iPhone again, and used IMovie to edit it all together. Also, I downloaded the song of of mp3juices.cc and put it all the way through the clip. I picked Be Together by Major Lazer because all I wanted to do was be together with my bed!!
So for this assignment 3 1/2 stars, I thought to create a cooking show, and feature Solenya’s favorite dish…..mashed potatoes!!!! I thought of this because My boyfriend Eric and I were going to make dinner, and I thought “What would Solenya want to eat tonight?” and then BAM! Mashed potatoes! Who doesn’t like mashed potatoes?! Solenya sure does!
I used my IPhone to take the video in my friend’s kitchen that we were hanging out in, and then I edited it on IMovie. To download the videos, I uploaded the videos to google drive then I downloaded them onto the apple computer in the HCC.
The title I put in as right on the start of us talking because I don’t like the random black screen saying what it is and then going to the video, so I made it how I liked. The ending credits are the scrolling credits I saw on IMovie. I didn’t add any audio to the video because its all us talking and I didn’t want to take away from our words. I did add an audio to the credits though. I downloaded the song “Watching Cartoons Up In My Room” off of mpsjuices.cc.
Wow I finished before Friday at 11pm for the first time in I don’t even know! This week was alright once again. I really don’t like editing video clips, so that’s what I know about myself now. I stuttered in the audio over the Harry Potter video essay a bit, but I wasn’t going to edit that out cause I don’t care and it shows that I’m human and I’m not perfect. I did the 12 stars of assignments this week cause we were all too busy to do another group project. My first assignment was me creating a tutorial on how to open a door, the next video was the questions my friends asked me and I answered them, and the last assignment video I made was the responses to the apocalypse questions.
