I had a lot of fun with this assignment. I had to choose a video and edit an instant replay into it. I knew just the video I wanted to use. My friend Riley has this video of him attempting to do a flip off of a stump, but he missed the landing. He sent me the video and I used Windows Movie Maker to copy the part I wanted to slow down, set it to 0.25x speed of the original, and put it all together. Here’s the video:

This assignment had me record a video highlighting one thing I do every day. I chose to film myself checking my email (while making sure no sensitive information was visible). I was going to film it all on my phone, but I realized that I can’t flip from the front to the back camera while I’m recording a video. So, I recorded myself using my webcam on my computer, then recorded my screen with my phone, then put the two together in Windows Movie Maker. Like browsing Tumblr, this is another thing involving the internet I do every day. The internet has become quite a necessity in our daily lives. Email is extremely important. Here’s my video:
One of my favorite things to do that involves the internet is to browse through Tumblr. It can be very entertaining and interesting. This assignment had me record a video demonstrating this. I was going to film it all on my phone, but I realized that I can’t flip from the front to the back camera while I’m recording a video. So, I recorded myself using my webcam on my computer, then recorded my screen with my phone, then put the two together in Windows Movie Maker. Here’s my video:
Video week 1 was fun! I got to make several short videos for the assignments and a video essay about the scene where Rue dies in the Hunger Games. I look forward to next week!
Here are all my posts from this week:
For my video essay, I had to think about movie scenes which were especially powerful to me. Instead of doing multiple scenes, we were to pick just one. I came up with the scene from the Hunger Games where Rue dies. It is an incredibly powerful scene. I used Audacity to record my commentary on the scene, then I used Windows Movie Maker to edit the video and the audio together.
Here’s the completed video with commentary:
This assignment took a spin on the six word story and six word quote ideas and had me do six second art. This was a tough one, not because of the art but because it took me like ten tries to fit what I wanted to draw into only six seconds. I thought a fun idea would be to draw what I used to draw myself like when I was only four or five years old.
For this assignment, I had to take a video with Vine of a moving object. This might be the last time I am able to do this because I heard today the Twitter is discontinuing Vine! It doesn’t make sense because so many people use Vine. I decided to take a vine of my roller skate because they are brand new and I love them and I want to show them off.

For this assignment, my mission was to spell a word in sign language. I came up with a word immediately, but I realized that there was actually one sign for the specific word, rather than spelling it out. This word is one of the few words I know in sign language, and I learned it from someone in my high school German class. Can you guess which word I’m signing?
