    Family Guy Connected Clips!


    Original Assignment (4.5 Stars)

    The next video assignment I decided to work on is the “Connected Clips” one. This initially was tough for me because I had a hard time deciding what show to do that had a good amount of reoccurring themes. Then I realized the show “Family Guy” …

    …In iMovie, that is.

    Seriously, though–this was definitely the hardest assignment for me this whole two weeks, and it’s because I made a simple mistake. Worse yet, the simple mistake is quite visible in the final product. Ugh. My perfectionist self is dismayed (but my kinder side is insisting that …

    60 second day


    4 stars

    I decided to do the 60 second day video, because I like the idea of having a documentation of my day. The assignment was to take 60 one second videos of your day. I chose it because I don’t have a lot of experience generating my own video …

    That Bleeping Censor


    For one of my Video Assignments this week, I chose to do the Bleeping Censor Assignment (5 stars). For this assignment, I spent most of the time just trying to find a video with a lot of cursing in it. Unfortunately, the only ones I could find were South Park …

    Sports intro video


    Sports pump it up video: For my video I chose to do a video on the Washington Capitals. Choosing the Caps do this project on was easy. I love following Washington sports teams. I really love baseball but hockey is the next best thing.

    I knew that I wanted to …

    Do it for the Vine!


    I decided that it would be a cool idea to try out vine for one of my video assignments since I see a lot of funny videos from there but have never had an account myself or anything. So I tried the Vine it! assignment. I tried to capture a …

    Vine of My Sunday! – (3 Stars)


    When I saw this assignment, I knew I wanted to do this one. I was already very familiar with Vine and how it works, I had an account that I made last summer. So I used it and video taped, using my phone, what my Sunday morning to the …

    Weeks 11 & 12 Summary


    What an interesting two weeks it has been, working with video/editing. I thoroughly enjoyed all the video assignments I chose, minus the required “cloning” video. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a cool effect and all, but it was pure mayhem trying to perfect it. Other than that slight issue, I’m …

    60-second day


    For my first assignment this week I chose to do the sixty-second day project. I chose to do Saturday as my day to life myself because it is usually my most hectic day. I run around, get errands done, work, and do my school work. I thought it would be …

    2 seconds of beauty ft. Hope!


    This weekend was a blast, and this is why: before I came to UMW, I spent my freshman year at Sweet Briar College in Amherst, VA; the institution has gorgeous grounds and wonderful faculty, but the overall size was a bit too small for my taste. Regardless, during my time …

    Talking with myself


    5 stars

    Wow, this assignment was the absolute worst. I played around in iMovie for forever, but I couldn’t find a way to merge my two videos realistically at all. I saw on a classmate’s post that they used something called “Camtasia” so I checked it out. It …

    Silent Velociraptors


    4 1/2 stars

    For the silent film assignment, I decided to focus on Jurassic Park, as it is my favorite movie ever. I saw that someone had already made a trailer of it for this assignment, and I didn’t want to copy them, so instead I made an entire scene. …

    Music Video – 5 stars


    This assignment like most of the assignments this week took a lot of work.  I am really proud of this video. So right now a 80’s workout video had Taylor Swifts Shake it off dubbed over top and it makes a pretty hilarious video. So I took this assignment and …

    Its all about me! – 2 stars


    This is one of the assignments I said I would do last week. I was waiting until the “right” time to record it. I figured why not do this at midnight. I think the late night made it a bit easier to talk about myself. While this was only 2 …

    Weeks 11 and 12 Summary


    These past two weeks have been mostly enjoyable and not to stressful. I really enjoyed getting to pick video assignments, there were a lot to choose from, so I didn’t feel so limited, and could do assignments based on what I enjoyed. I used iMovie for all of my videos, …
