This trailer was made for school and is intended to promote my documentary that i made for class. I chose to go the silly path with it.
Today I was a judge for the SkillsUSA regional state competition in Wisconsin. Doug asked me to do it on Monday during video production class. I was quite honored to even be asked. The 4 judges were Doug, myself, Jon, and David. Doug and David being teachers at MATC and Jon being a fellow student who also works in the video field.
I think things went well, I learned more about the world of video and how people start out in it, along with thinking critically about video pieces. I hope I brought a unique perspective to the judging.
Here is another new video I made for Video Production today.
This time the objective was to create “an exciting movie trailer from very boring video footage.” And very boring it was. I think it turned out kind of ok. There are still things I wish I could have done to it, but due to time, and the fact I was using iMovie HD 6 I did not get to them.
The video was edited in iMovie HD 6. The music was made in Grageband, and the sound effects came from a website that escapes my memory right now. The title slides were made in Photoshop. All done between 4:30am and 7:30am. It is also a bit short too. It was sposto be at least 1 min long.
Here is a PSA I made for Video Production. The goal of the project was to make a 60 second spot that was a PSA advocating a call to action on a chosen subject. I picked phishing because I thought it was a new and fresh topic that would be unique, and I knew pretty much how to explain it. This also gave me a chance to work with Motion for the first time. Let me know if you learned anything from it in the comments of this post, or the video’s YouTube page.
I made this for Video Production class. It was sposto be a 3-4 min how-to video. Mine went over quite a bit, I think I picked a topic that was a bit too complicated for that time. I could remove some of the silly bits, but that would only take off about a min. And it would harm the video overall.
