I had a lot of fun making this video. I had about 40 short clips/shots that I captured at Mt. Pisgah. I had a hard time choosing my favorites but I am overall very happy with how this video looks. I think the lighting as well as the selective focus in some of these shots creates a fun and interesting view. It was nice to use homework as an excuse to go outside and get some fresh air. I usually find myself confined at my desk or in my bed starting at my laptop like a robot. It was so refreshing and wonderful to spend time with my mom and doggie is such a beautiful place. I had a hard time lining up beats in the song with clip transitions, but i am pretty satisfied with how they turned out. I also felt like all the transitions on premiere pro were really cheesy looking so I opted to just have the clips follow each other without fancy transitions. The only transitions I added were from the title in the beginning to the first clip, then the last clip to the credits, and I am really happy with how that turned out.
I did have a hard time with the audio, and listening to it I felt like it sounded unnatural at times. I talk rather fast and I couldn’t record audio while watching the video so I ended up breaking the audio into pieces and spreading it throughout the video. This allowed more time for the music to shine and just allow a break in narration.
I think I am pretty proud of the final product and excited about how much I have learned about video/audio production. This was only my second video I have ever made so i am pretty happy with it.

Well this was neat! I’m in the same grade as you so I’m basically experiencing the world at the same rate. It’s been absolutely wild. It’s certainly been an adventure, although not necessarily a fun one. Glad you shared this. Good video.
Lucky dog! I’ve only been there once, but that was so long ago. Ever since the pandemic, the farthest I’ve been from home was to the local barbershop, so I’m envious. But you brought the experience here to me, and that’s great!
Well done on this. I especially enjoyed the transition to the end credits: felt smooth and provided peaceful closure with your dialogue.
