I really enjoyed video week, I’ll be honest I was a bit nervous when I first read the assignments. I am finding myself analyzing movies and TV shows and judging the ways the directors portray the moods and characters. I started off the week with daily creates that were done on Monday and Tuesday and posted them on twitter as well as in a blog post.
I chose to do the 10 stars of Video Assignments for the optional work this week. So after the daily creates I then started focusing on the video assignments. I did three assignments, totaling 11 1/2 stars. I made a video called “What do you love?” which was 2 1/2 stars, and Character Description for 4 stars, and then collaborated with Brittany for a commercial assignment worth 5 stars. My host character was used for the two videos I made on my own.
The hardest assignment this week in my opinion was the video essay. Watching the videos posted on for Week 10 really helped but planning the overall project kept me from being able to do the assignment for a few days. I wasn’t quite sure what movie I should pick and struggled with picking powerful scenes, but I looked at a few examples and hopefully mine turned out okay!
In addition to the assignments, I also commented on 10 blog posts made by other students in the class. The links for those comments are posted below.
