I loved this assignment! It was an extremely healing experience for me. After my accident I knew I wanted to make a video about it and I wasn’t sure when or how. The only reason I was able to make this video was because I went back to school and now have an understanding of different adobe softwares and proper terms in this field. I learned the basics of how to animate an object in premiere pro but I want to learn more advanced techniques in the future. The first part of the video I created was the audio. The sound sculpture recreates and sets the scene without having visuals. Then I added dialogue, aka my thought process at the time over the sound sculpture. Now I needed a visual and I thought it would be hard to try to recreate that in live action so I did my very first animatic. It is extremely beginner level but I am glad I added it. The accident really had a huge impact on my life and taught me a valuable lesson, to live life to the fullest because you never know when it will be your last. Don’t take life for granted.
