I am Me

Posted by

For my last video assignment, I completed “I am Me” This 4 star assignment is just a video that represents you. There was only one example listed and it was a girl making some silly faces, so I thought this would definitely be fun to do, thought I didn’t make any fun faces!

I made a video intro and closing and just added a bunch of pictures with captions. This video was all about me afterall, and I’m not a huge fan of hearing my voice on playback and I figured everyone would enjoy looking at pictures more than hearing my voice anyways. I went with four different categories “I love…” “I am obsessed with…” “I love to travel” and “Sometimes I.” In each category, I add a bunch of pictures of people, things, and places. I also added to lists “My favorites” and “Not a fan of.” In addition to those two lists, I added a fun fact about myself.

For the music I chose two songs that I really love right now. First is Taylor Swift’s song “22,” in addition to liking the song, I am 22 years old and I thought it would fit in the video perfectly. The second song is “Ho Hey” by the Lumineers, but the version I used is a cover by Lennon and Maisy Stella who are real life sisters and actresses on the ABC tv show “Nashville.” I heard their cover on the show the other night and instantly feel in love with it!

I pulled the “Ho Hey” cover from Youtube and downloaded it to a MP3 using KeepVid, I already owned 22. From this point, I just added them into iMovie and set them up how I wanted them to play. I finalized the video and then remembered I forgot to put an intro slide and closing credits. So once I put those in, I finalized the movie again and uploaded it to Youtube.

Once again I had to do two different screen shots so you could see my work in iMovie. iMovie for I am me Screen shot 2013-04-11 at 9.00.39 PM

I just received an email from youtube saying that parts of my video (I assume the music, because the pictures are all mine) “are owned or licensed by UMG, but still available on Youtube. In some cases, it maybe blocked.” So hopefully it will still play below. But if you have any issues, please let me know.

PS. I thought I had cut out the initial squirming around I do in the intro clip. Sorry for the error and weirdness.
