I thought that this would be a cool assignment to do because I have never actually focused on the bottom half of my body when going places. This gave me an all new view of what occurs every school day. I decided to record my daily trip during the school week from my room to my classroom, and then all the way back home. This is a powerful point of view because I take the same route to my classes everyday. I do not change one thing about it. I have taken the same route to my classes every day since the first day of school this semester. The message I wanted to show was this route plays a huge part in my life right now. Without taking this route I would not get to class as fast and as easy as I am able to do. This route is important to me because it allows me to learn and earn my degree. I believe that it also shows that it is important to take a step back and look at all the little things in life maybe even looking towards the ground because they are all beautiful.
I created this assignment by filming little clips from the time I put my shoes on in my room until I returned back to my room. During the filming I went to the psychology hall on campus by following the same route that I utilize every day. I then uploaded all of those clips to my computer and then to iMovie. That step took s long to complete because it was so many clips being uploaded at once. I then created a title an a ending slide. After that I pieced all the steps in the order that they are supposed to be in. After that I uploaded some music to iMovie and faded it out how I wanted it to sound. I then downloaded the video as an mp4 file and uploaded it to YouTube.
If I did this assignment again I would probably try and match up my footsteps with the beat of the song that I used. I feel like that would have made it a better video. In this assignment I learned how to make a background for my initial title slide. I believe having the knowledge of how to do this will allow me to b=make better opening parts to my videos.
