The entire history of human expression, slightly abridged
This took about 30 minutes, mostly because Windows Live MovieMaker–which occasionally hates exporting the things that I make–was working properly. I did the video–no script or anything, it’s not a big deal–and I posted it, no problem, but the volume was really low. I think I was editing with my earphones on, which gave an unrealistic sense of how loud the final video would be. So I went back into the draft I had saved in WLMM, upped the volume, and uploaded it.
Here’s the video:
I’m excited to spend some time focusing on movie-making techniques this semester. This video was completed for DS106’s Daily Create #362, but I really feel like I could use a refresher on lighting, camera angles, and also creating depth and movement (looking forward to spending time with Jan Roberts-Breslin’s Making Media, an industry standard text for students). I tried to make the lighting interesting, stronger on the right side, creating a more intense contrast to, hopefully, make a video of a paper bag feel new(er than it would otherwise).
All of which begs the question: Does Bagman need his own Tumblr?
