Reflections on Composition Project

Since I covered most of the paragraph writing from the half sheet we got in class today in my authors note, I decided to reflect on the 4 bullet questions at the bottom of the sheet.

I loved using film as a medium. I hadn’t worked too much with it in the past, but was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for me to work with. I love the element of writing, images, video and music being combined in one project. I will use film medium in my future projects I am sure now that  I am comfortable with it.

I chose the song just because I love the artist and I had been listening to it a lot at the time I was making the video. I chose images that were interesting and relevant to my point. I also tried to find a few that held a sense of humor because that is generally a direction I prefer to take when doing something creative like this.

The audio and visual effects of my project I think make it streamline. They help me tell a more interesting story than I would have just writing a Word document. I am a very visual and audio person so this project was right up my alley using things like images, movie and music.

The only thing I would do differently is maybe slow down the pace of the film? I thought it flowed better as a quick short film but maybe my audience felt it was too quick? I tend to do things in a quick manner which I have been scolded for by teachers in the past, yet it is in my nature and I cannot seem to help the pace I work at. I probably should have been more considerate that everyone does not read or comprehend at the fast rate I do. That may sound narcissistic in a way, I don’t mean it rudely, just factually, some people do things slower or quicker than others. Other than that I am very happy with my project and feel it says everything I wanted it to about my main point in a creative way.


Overall I feel very good about this project, I had a lot of fun working on it.

Here is some more Leo DiCaprio as Romeo incase there wasn’t enough in my project for your liking;)

  1. Good work on your Composition unit here, Jenna. I loved your responses to the conversations about politics in the writing classroom! I am not finding your responses to the other comp readings, however: Yancey, the Writing in Digital Environments group (Kairos article), or Murray? Let me know. Your score for the 2nd blog check (composition): 1/4. MC

      I am so sorry I am late getting back to you on this. I was swamped with projects not just from this class but from all my classes! I actually had all of my thoughts on the composition readings written down in my notebook but had failed to put them onto my blog as posts. I have now done that for Yancey, Murray and the WIDE collective , hopefully it is not too late to upgrade my blog check grade. If it is I more than understand. I will be working on my linguistics responses this week and should be all caught up by the weekend is my goal! Thanks!

  2. Yes, I see the new entries. At the end of the semester, when your blog is done, I will grade these entries. Let me know. MC
