Video Assignments_star count

Monday, April 9th, 2012

I completed a total of 28/30 stars for the three weeks total of video work. The videos are listed on my blog so in this post i will just give a brief over view of the assignments that i did.

I did the film essay in which i did i best to give you my personal insight on one of my favorite films, Curly Sue.

I did the 30 second documentary in which i outlined the steps that i take to draw a flower.

I did the make a tutorial for your mom, that one was my first and my worst but hey everyone has to start somewhere.

I did the movie trailer mash-up and that was most definitely my favorite to do and the one i am most proud of.

I did the movies that changed our lives and i picked three of my most favorite cartoons and lastly i did the opening credit redux where i just altered the opening credits to married with children by depicting it as happy families when in reality the show constantly depicted how miserable they were at times lol.

Those were all the assignments that i completed!

 

Opening Credit Redux

I chose to do the opening credits for the show married with children, i love this show! They are not the most conventional family and so i thought a way that would make it funny is if i inserted some photos of families that were happy and laughing together, and then at the end it goes back to them and how really unhappy he is with his life and family. Enjoy !!

Movies That Changed My Life

I am a huge fan of cartoons and the three i chose for this video were Bambi, The Lion King, and Toy Story 3. I chose these three because no matter how many times i watch them i either tear up or bawl like a big baby.

When i first saw Bambi i made my dad come with me in the woods to find him and make sure he was okay…it was an impossible task but dad had a friend help him stage the event to calm my nerves ha! When i first watched the lion king i was just filled with so much rage for Simba’s uncle scar and felt sad for the lost of mufasa, so my dad brought me a chihuahua and named him mufasa and told me that his spirit went into the dog. And for toy story 3 i was just so appalled at the fact that we could of had to say good bye to our beloved toys lol.

This assignment was my first attempt at doing the editing and stuff and i was having difficulties with my laptop and the only way i could figure out to do this was to hold my camera at my computer while i did the video. So it’s blurry and you can’t really see what is going on but i tried my best to make it better, but you have to start from somewhere!

For this assignment i decided to do my documentary on the process of me drawing a flower. I am not the best at it but i thought it would be good to show others how to draw it step by step.

Film Essay – Curly Sue

For this Video Essay Assignment you had to select several scenes from your favorite film (or one of your favorites), and edit them together and comment on some of the filmic elements of the scenes? Why do you like these scenes? What strikes you about them? What makes them good cinema? Is there a subtext at work in this film? In short, construct an essayistic commentary on the scenes as a narrator explaining to your audience what you find important about the scene, and why. What’s more, what do the details you have pinpointed say about the film more generally.

I chose this movie because it is one of my favorites and the concept of it is very sweet and hart warming. What i saw as the directors vision behind this movie was that unconventional families are more common than we think, and that it doesn’t matter what background or class you come from love is love.
