Title: Supercut It
Description: For this assignment I was asked to a supercut montage of overused dialogue, themes, motifs, filmmaking techniques, etc. for a particular character, tv show, film, and/or public figure. A supercut is basically a fast-paced montage of short video clips that obsessively isolates a single element from its source, usually a word, phrase, or cliche from film and TV.
Inspiration: I thought that this assignment would be fun and a bit challenging after I saw it in the Assignment Respiratory. I thought that this assignment would require me to go out of my normal comfort zone so I decided to just go for it. I decided to use ‘crying’ as my theme for this assignment.
Process: I went on Youtube and searched for a video that featured different crying scenes from an array of movies. Next I used the program Winx Youtube Downloader to download the video to my laptop so I could cut out the parts of it that I didn’t need. I accomplished this by using the tool Trim in Windows Movie Maker. Through this tool I was able to trim down to just the crying scenes. I then just saved the video and uploaded it to my Youtube account.
Example: Here are two previous examples of this project:
I felt that overall they both got their message across in each of their videos. However, out of the two I felt that the first example was more effective since it was a bit longer.
