Hi! So I chose option 2 for this week (do 10 stars worth of video assignments) and I chose to create a mash-up trailer. At first this task seemed super daunting, and I admit it was a bit challenging at first because I’ve never done something like it before, BUT…..it ended up being my favorite thing I’ve ever created so far for this class.
I decided to take my own twist on the project, and instead of a movie trailer, I created a short film/”trailer” all about the 80s. Here’s a list from my notes about what I chose to include in the video:
- Historical events
- Popular movies
- Popular musicians
This project was super time consuming, especially trimming and splitting the videos to show the exact moments I wanted. I pulled the videos from Youtube, which also was time-consuming because I had to watch a lot of things, and pick/chose which videos I thought would fit best. To download the videos from Youtube, I used “4k downloader” and it did the job perfectly, great app. To put the clips together, I used the generic Windows Movie/Photo app on my laptop, which is super basic (perfect for beginners). I wish it had more features, such as more available background music or a way to transition the clips in cool ways, but overall I’m happy with how it worked.
My favorite part of the video is the ending!! Let me know your favorite part or if you have any suggestions for future video projects.
