This week was really challenging for me because I had never used any movie making software before. But to start the week off I got to listen to more radio shows which was really cool to hear. I listened to NOIR At Night, and Silk Road. NOIR at night was exciting but a little hard to follow because the voices weren’t as clear. Silk Road was very good, the voices were so clear and the story was well plotted out. It was exciting, funny, and suspenseful all in one. Next we had to do a radio show final reflection. There was a lot of things and assignments to reflect on for the whole radio show process. My favorite parts were recording the interviews for our show and listening to other people’s creations. I liked hearing how different the other shows were from ours and the new ideas that everyone else had. We also had to do two daily creates. I liked the “mail art” daily create better because it let me be more creative and I got to learn how to make something else using origami. Next we had to learn how to read a movie. This was really interesting because I had no idea all of those different elements went into making a scene. It covered everything from the position of a person to the angle of the camera. The next part was the hardest part of the week for me. The video essay took a lot of time since I knew nothing about how to edit or download it. I got a lot of help from my roommates on how to edit things together so that helped. In the end I think it turned out ok, the only thing I would change would be the silence in the beginning of the scene before I start talking. Also, we had to choose between different kinds of video assignments. I chose to do the individual video assignments since my character is a male, so I wanted to avoid dressing up as a man every time we had to shoot for the video. Many of the video assignments looked very challenging so I tried to take it kind of slow for the first week. Finally, we had to set up a character category for all of our character assignments. I’m glad we had to do this because I never really knew what to put them under. This week was tough, but now I have a much better idea of how to edit video!
