Creating a Video Project…

This week, we moved into the actual production of our short videos and boy was it tasking. I initially started by scripting the video with my partner. Since I am in the digital media studio class at Mary Wash, I have a little bit of experience with scripting in the proper format and judging time. I tried doing this, but then I decided it would be too hard to actually read what we were supposed to while trying to film a video. My partner and I decided it would be good to have points we wanted to cover and then kind of wing the rest. I must say that when you are winging it, you get some really great footage of laughing, etc. We used a laptop camera to record our short video and then I put the footage into iMovie to edit. I have a bit of experience with iMovie from that class as well, so I decided this would be the best editing tool for me. I was able to cut the clip at certain places and crop out the mistakes. I then used pictures to overlay our voices, since we decided to take more of an informational video show route. One of the things that I learned is that I do enjoy video editing, but I could probably use some more practice in iMovie so that I can learn all of the features and how to best use them. Overall, I think our video is pretty educational and entertaining because of the way it is edited. We were not entirely sure which direction we should go with the video, so we chose this way. I hope you all enjoy the short video and let me know what I could do differently next time!
