For the Video Essay Assignment, I chose to create a commentary on the John Hughe’s classic, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The premise is that his sidekick Cameron undeservedly gets a bit lost under Bueller’s very long shadow, yet his narrative is interesting and deserves a bit of the spotlight. The video is full of spoilers, so if you haven’t yet seen the movie (why not?!), you’ve been warned.
Creating this was a bit of a saga, as I documented here. But once I was able to get the clips in a usable format, using Vegas to arrange the clips and record the voiceovers was an absolute breeze.
