Ok so here is my video essay.
I actually had a hard time creating this video. It took a lot of time for me to learn how to use all the different types of software, and to implement them into the video itself. Watching the movie took awhile to do as well. I especially had difficulty with continually updating my imovie program so that the voice over option was even an option. I think I had to update at least twice….? I usually don’t make movies, so that’s probably why it was so behind.
Also, I was filming myself using my webcam, and it would start to lag every 1:30 or so. Which was really, really obnoxious mainly because I didn’t know how to fix it. In the video there might be segments where the audio keeps going and the video of my face stops at a weird expression for a couple of seconds. I apologize, but I REALLY have no idea how to correct this error.
Furthermore, I had difficulty in motivating myself to do this project. I haven’t had too many problems in the other assignments, but this one, for whatever reason, was like pulling teeth. I’m not sure if it was because I’m fuzzy about how to make videos as having never really had the opportunity to make them, or if making a video is just a LOT of work. Either way, I did my best!
Also, my wordpress account updated (which is great) but now I have been having difficulty putting in media from websites and the like into my posts. Case and point, I am having a heck of a time embedding my video into this post…. the versions of word press keep switching on me. This is also why, in my weekly summary, there are more links than videos available.
here you go!!
