Week #10 Summary

Video Editing Tools:  I am not familiar with video editing tools at all, but in the post I wrote about the tools I’m planning on using.  Throughout this week I was able to learn how to use these video editing tools.  I also feel better about using these tools for future assignments.  I have used MPEG Stream Clip for cutting a scene to create my gif in week 2.  After this week I feel a lot better with MPEG Stream Clip than I did in week 2.

3 Time Review of Selected Movie SceneI decided to use the movie clip from the third YouTube play list in this weeks summary.  I used the closing clip from the movie the Social Network. This movie is about the creator of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg.  This scene was interesting to work with because there was no dialogue in it.  There was still background sound and music but no one spoke in the scene.  As I was “reading” the movie I was able to tell by the camera angles and other cinematic techniques what was going on in the scene and how Mark was feeling.

2nd Post on Selected Movie Scene Movie Scene Summary: Now making of a short montage from two different clips from the same movie was challenging but still fun.  I learned a lot and learned more on how to edit and put video clips together.  Using MPEG Stream Clip and PwnYoutube really helped make these assignments much easier.  For this video montage I found two other clips with dialogue that expressed the relationship between Mark and Erica. The tutorial really helped me understand how to use MPEG Stream Clip and combine clips together to make them all one story. It was also a lot of fun to research interesting facts about my movie.  I didn’t realize before how many different locations a movie can be filmed at and what goes into choosing a genre for the movie.

2 Video Assignments for next week:  The two video assignments I decided to choose from are Return to the Silent Era and Animated Music Video.  In this post I had fun reviewing two already done assignments for each of these.  I am looking forward to next week so I can actually work on the video editing for this assignment.

2 Daily Creates:  I will have to say it was nice having only two daily creates to do this week.  With learning how to use all this video software and such it was nice not to have to think about doing a lot of daily creates for every day.  I still really like doing the daily creates though because they don’t take up much time.  I hope through the next few weeks that there won’t be as many so I can focus mostly on video editing.

Week 10 Reflection: I will start off saying that before this week I had no knowledge about video editing and such.  But after reading through the weekly post, and watching tutorials, and doing the assignments for this week I feel more comfortable with video, and using video editing software.  There really is a lot that goes into making a movie and editing it.  I can see why it takes so long to make a movie.  I can’t believe that we’re already in week 10.  This semester is going by really fast, and there really isn’t that much longer to go.  I am looking forward to next week when I can start working on my video assignments that I chose.
