Punkin Adventures- October 30, 2015

For my first video assignment of the week I decided to complete Selfie Story. [Narrate a story using selfies. It can be any story you’d like (crazy night out, movie night with friends, just the average day, etc). You can use a combination of selfie clips or pictures, it is all up to you. Create a 1-2 minute video montage of all the selfies to tell the story. Try adding music or effects to keep it interesting.] I already take plenty of selfies, and Douglas complains constantly about my need to capture the moment on my phone. However, since this was for an assignment he obliged to my recording our pumpkin carving adventure via Selfies. It was so much fun, and I think (as per the assignment) that the video itself tells the story. Here’s our Punkin Adventure!!

I made this video with Windows Movie Maker. The pictures were taken on my LG G2 smart phone, and then I downloaded them to my computer and uploaded them to the movie maker. At this point, it was a matter of adding transitions and background music. I used transitions that had sharp edges and triangle-shaped features because I thought it resembled the triangle-shaped eyes of the carved pumpkins. For the background music, I used an instrumental mp3 of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” I figured this song was appropriate given the spooky holiday feelings!

    The self-portrait story presented here definitely provides the “Wish You Were Here” feeling that such forms of storytelling provide their viewers. From my perspective, it’s one of the better attempts to tie Halloween to a project in some time. #talkingpolack106

    What an amazing selfie story! Watching the video helped me feel like I was actually there. The number of selfies in this video really helps replicate the experience for us viewers. If anyone of the photos were left out, the video wouldn’t be as immersive, so again, great job #talkingpolack106
