Pre Production

This week we were suppose to do all the preparatory work for the Video Assignments we need to complete for next week.  The first thing I did was find two assignments I thought were cool, these assignments include “Supercut It” and “Play it Backward, Jack.”

For Supercut It (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/supercut-it/)
I decided to focus on the show friends, and the character Joey’s common saying “How you doin’?”  I first googled the saying to help me find different episodes with him saying his common saying.




(only a certain part)



WIth the clips, I will download them onto my computer and edit them using MPEG Streamclip. Once the editing is done I will upload them onto iMovie and put them together to create a montage.
This assignment has not yet been completed by anyone, but there are montages of this saying by Joey on youtube, they place the varying clips together well and really are able to convey how this is Joey’s famous saying on friends.

Assignment Details: (http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/supercut-it/)
Create a supercut montage of overused dialogue, themes, motifs, filmmaking techniques, etc. for a particular character, tv show, film, and/or public figure. For examples and descriptions of supercuts visit:

The second Video Assignment I chose to do for next week is called Play it Backward, Jack. For this assignment I decided to do a video of something kind of random. My idea for this assignment is to put a marshmallow in the microwave and microwave it making it enlarge and blow up. I thought it would look cool to reverse a video of a marshmallow blowing up. To create the video I will need a camera, marshmallow, microwave, and either imovie or MPEG Streamclip to reverse the clip.
2 previously done examples of this assignment include “Reversing the Rain” and “Reversed: Sliding on socks” I found both to be cool.
Reversing the Rain (http://blog.cryptovalence.com/?p=444&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=reversing-the-rain)

I liked the one with the reversing the rain because it was cool to see the rain just vanish in a sense. It took something so basic and occurs regularly and made me think of it in a more abstract way when it moved in the opposite direction.

The Reversed! Sliding on socks example (http://blog.nickantonini.com/?p=337&utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=337)

I laughed when I first saw this video because I slide on my socks all the time so I thought it was pretty clever for him to make a reverse video.

Things always look super weird when you play them in reverse, don’t they? So take a video of something in your life–someone running, the toilet flushing, the sink dripping, someone spitting, whatever–and reverse it! Check out an example here:http://youtu.be/sTef_w2ZZhk
