I always hate this blog, because it means that the semester is over and I won't have one of my favorite classes to go to everyday. Broadcast Tech has honestly been so great this year! In most classes you have very strict assignments and it's all molded from someone else, but this class really allows me to film whatever I want and express myself in so many different ways. This year I really got to make videos that just really reflected how i felt in the moment. My favorite video would have to be my reflection video, I just got to experiment with so many new shots I don't always use and I did so much cool editing that I never did and I got to incorporate my songwriting and poetry into it and it really brought out all my favorite forms of creativity, also I looked so cute. I can not wait to take the class again! Next year though I am going full force on my videos, this year I felt like i held back cause I wasn't used to doing such high caliber creative projects but now I know I can and I will accomplish making a short film!
The theme of our final videos had to be reflection, whether it was just a shot of a reflective surface or a reflection of yourself. So i took it as learning to love the person in the mirror and i wrote a piece about growing to love myself. I wanted to tell the story of how i became this kind of self obsessed diva, and a big part of it for me was learning to be alone and love who i was. It was a different project for me because this was a video I wanted to do in a very creative way and try new shots and editing tools. This was also my first video using something I wrote as a song and turn it into poetry, This video was also my experiment with using music produced by someone for a video. The music was produced by www.FreekvanWorkum.net and it was so perfect for this video and just the vibe that i give off. I just felt like it worked with me and the nature setting which is also very important to me because nature just pull out a simple beauty in everything so I'm real glad I went outside.
