My Weekend

This video assignment has been different from the past. This was a video with no sound from it and music just as background noise and the video was built on index cards in the camera for 4 stars. It was supposed to make a story beginning middle and end with no words and trying not to focus on camera angle as much as the story. There are plenty of things I would change if I had the chance or better equipment that I did not have to think so far in advance to get. I would have actually picked a better spot to film the video besides my bedroom and the note cards were just a story I though of because what I was going through this weekend.

I just used my camera app on the computer and then uploaded it to the Photos app to play around with some editing including the opening and closing credits. I like the credits and the sites I used for the music and the way I edited the music in audacity. I was able to add a title page and credits page through the photos app. If I could do this again, I would pick a different story and a different place to record it. I would have maybe even renting equipment from the HCC to make to video if I planned it enough in advance.

The story was about me wanting to go home especially after my dad mentioned it, but I did not do it because of all the work I had to do. I tried to edit the music to sound like popular music from the 80’s and the way it would have been recording with the beats and sounds I tried to incorporate. I definitely learned how hard it is to mesh two things together that didn’t start at the same time. I was struggling with the timing of the music with the video to make it sound the way I wanted it to when I first saw it or what I felt looking at the video with flash cards.

  1. I can relate to this story! I never stop doing homework, even on weekends. I actually got to the point where I made myself sick because I haven’t been eating or sleeping that well since I work non-stop.
    There’s so much homework, and not enough time to do it all. This past Sunday was the first day in a long time where I actually spent the day with my boyfriend, but I felt guilty about taking a break, even though it was much needed.
