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;)
