Weekly Summary # 11

Since I was very busy with other assignments throughout this week, I have completed everything today! I started by completing  all the video assignments from the assignment bank. The first assignment was about compiling pictures of my dream place in a video.

For my second assignment from the video bank, I chose to take a video of one of the thing that I do every day.

What do you do??

For the third and last assignment from the video bank this week, I chose to do the video of something I am terrible at doing.

what I am terrible at?

Out of all the three assignments that I have discussed above, I enjoyed doing the first one only. After that, I completed the three daily creates in one day which I know is not right but I did not have any other option.

I wanted to also do the daily create of Friday, but I did not have a single picture of my childhood in my laptop.

Last but not the least, I did the assignment of thinking of a crisis my superhero can solve.

what I am terrible at?

For the third and last assignment from the video bank this week, I chose to do the video of something I am terrible at doing. I liked the idea of this assignment, but I could not think of any so I just took the idea from the assignment description. I have done the stitching of clothes once or twice in my lifetime, and I feel that I am terrible at it. So I asked my mom to take a video of me while I am doing a little bit of stitching.

What do you do??

For my second assignment from the video bank, I chose to take a video of one of the thing that I do every day. I have a bag of nuts at the table of my room, and I eat a handful of nuts from that bag everyday. I eat it because nuts are healthy and tasty and I would recommend everyone to eat some nuts everyday.

side note: After watching the video, I get the feeling as if I am advertising the brand of welson farm.

 

Dream Place

I chose to do the assignment of compiling the pictures of places where I dream of going. I chose two countries(India , Spain) which I want to visit. To make a video in Imovie, I had to have pictures and an appropriate music.

For pictures, I googled some of the top tourist attractions of these countries and used Flickr to find appropriate pictures of those places, I kept on downloading the pictures I liked in my local computer. As soon as I was done with that, I  created a new project in Imovie and dragged the downloaded pictures in Imovie.

To add a background music, I went to http://freesound.org/ and searched for some good Spanish and Indian music. I downloaded that music, and added that music as a background in the video I made.

 

 

Superhero crisis

My superhero always completed his missions in a concealed way, not letting anyone know who was doing that. People in the city knew that there was a superhero, but were not exactly sure who that person was.

What if this news of who the superhero is, goes public and is announced at the news channels? As everyone comes to know about it, their behavior changes. The people/organizations, whose missions were adversely affected by his missions for the betterment of the people take advantage of this news and try to harm him while others start liking him as a person now.

Now the idea is how my superhero tackles this issue of changing behaviors and overcomes it??

 

Week 10

I started this week’s work by doing video assignments.  The first assignment that I chose to do is about “making a paper boat”. I used to make it when I was a kid so I enjoyed doing this assignment.

For the third assignment, I learnt to take a 6 second video clip of a moving object using an app called ‘vine’.

I also created a video in which I explained two Life hacks. I hope it will help make a little difference in your life and make your life easier.

Moreover, I made a video essay in which I explained the scenes of the show ‘The Flash’. I have explained the techniques I read in the readings and watched in the videos.

Video Essay

Last but not the least, I participated in two daily creates of the week. I found the two similar looking candle holders at home so I took the picture of it and tweeted it in response to

For the second tweet, I made this picture in Paint X Lite. I think everyone should respect the uniqueness among individuals for the betterment of this country.

To complete my 10 stars, I decided to do another assignment from the video bank which is about ‘making an object move using vine’. In the beginning, when I read this title, I thought vine is a name of name of thing but later on, I came to know that it is a social networking app. I watched couple of videos to learn how to take pictures and  make a video of moving object in vine.

 

Making a paper boat

To complete the assignment of Arts and Crafts tutorial, I decided to teach how to make a paper boat. I used to make it when I was a kid so I practiced it twice before recording it. I used the free music to add to the background. I also used paint  X Lite to make pictures which I added and the most important tool that I used is iMovie.

Sign Language

To do this assignment of signing words. I watched the videos of students who had already completed this assignment to get an idea of what I was supposed to do. I did not even know that there existed different alphabets for sign language. I also watched a youtube video in which they were teaching the sign language alphabets and then I made my video which only explains 1 word using the alphabets. I used the photo Booth application in my macbook to complete do this video recording assignment.  Try guessing the word and tell me your answer in the comments below.

Life Hacks

I enjoyed doing the assignment of Life hacks although it took a long time to complete it. I did not have any idea of working with iMovie so it took some time to be familiar with it. To teach two life hacks, I took help from my mom. To do the first life hack, I recorded it while I told my mom to do what I wanted while in the second one I did it and asked her to record it.

I learnt to use many  features of  iMovie starting from adding pictures between video to add transitions and background music and many other features as well.
