This week was not what I had expected! I expected this to be one of the worst weeks because I do not like making videos but so far I feel like it was the best. It was great to learn about the cinematic effects that film makers use. I will now not be able to watch a movie without thinking about these concepts. I know the assignment you said would be more videos next week if we don’t do the radio show, so I am excited!
The movie I chose for the video essay was Suicide Squad. I think this movie has some great scenes and the way the scenes are shot really make them stand out to me. I downloaded the clip I needed from YouTube, trimmed it, and began making my essay on iMovie. I recorded my voice and placed it over top of the movie scene. I made sure my voice is louder than the scene so I adjusted the volumes on both. This was not my favorite assignment this week but check it out below:
We got to choose between 2 assignments that we had to do and I chose the Life Hack one. I thought it was going to be hard to do but it ended up being really fun! I really enjoyed filming and editing it. I love to watch those videos on Facebook where people create things so it was fun to get to do it on my own.

One assignment that I did this week was to video where your shoes take you. I thought this would be an easy assignment but it ended up being hard. Overall I enjoyed it and would even do it again! I liked using Snapchat to capture my videos and show times and locations. Check it out below:
The other assignment I did was hard but fun! I had to Vine my healthy dinner. I am picky so my healthy is not other people’s definition but it works for me. It is hard to Vine and make dinner but I think it turned out great. I enjoyed this assignment and I like that I can understand how/what is being made in the Vine. Check it out below:
I did my last video assignment about a 6 second art. I thought this would be simple until I started drawing things and realized that even the simplest of drawings takes more than 6 seconds to draw. I had a bunch of ideas but the time restraint made it hard. I used my computer to record my drawing of a butterfly and then edited it in iMovie.

One I did was for accidentally typing the wrong thing into google images but then not being upset with what the result was. This had actually recently happened to me when I was looking up haircuts a few weeks ago. I accidentally typed ‘haircats’ instead of ‘haircuts’ and I was not one bit disappointed!!

The other one I did was for doubles day. I had to take a picture of something I saw that was in doubles. When I saw my sister’s 2 cats curled up into 2 small furry balls of fluff, I thought it would be perfect for this. In this case, 2 is definitely better than 1!
