MUL101 Sp20 P5 Final Project
June 3, 2020
I really enjoyed doing this assignment. I have always been into video creation, editing, and sound engineering. This video project was really fun. It has been a frustrating term as most of us know. Not being on campus, not having access to our instructors, access to gear, and interaction with our peers, has been trying. I have appreciated how everyone has pulled through and been creative with what they have to work with.
I have limited resources so this project was more difficult than I had anticipated. I think it turned out alright but I really wish that I had a camera as opposed to my laptop for filming. I couldn’t quite get all of the shots that I had envisioned for my short film. I had bigger plans for all of the angles and cuts that I wanted to use but I just couldn’t make it happen with what I have to work with. Despite that, I feel like I did an alright job.
I wanted to create something like the online internet sketches that are common on YouTube. I wanted it to be funny more than anything. Man, could I use a good dose of laughter these days! My house is small and there aren’t very many options to get out to film elsewhere and even if there was, all I have is my laptop to record. That made me have to think and rethink how to make this project come to fruition. I had a lot of ideas, to begin with. After trying to get good shots with my phone and my camera, I realized that those were not options. I had to re-plan numerous times.
Learning the editing programs has been both fun and challenging, especially without instructor contact. I’m relatively new to technology in general so it’s been pretty overwhelming. I am, however, looking forward to doing more in the future. I imagine once I get used to the programs that this will be a blast! I hope everyone is enjoying their projects as well!
P.S. I wasn’t really drinking.
