As our final project for this class, we are doing a project based assessment (PBA). A PBA can count towards CTE Honors when I graduate. The PBA is kind of a way to show off what I have learned throughout my years in digital media. It's goal is to showcase the skills and knowledge that have been gained. As a part of the project, we had to do a technical writing piece in which we researched about the history of the type of video we were doing. For my project I am working with Keegan Kessler and we chose to do it on video art. We chose to do this topic because video art encompasses a lot and it is really just up to your interpretation. For the video we wanted it to show off the colors of the world. We wanted to use paint and ink, along with shots of nature to convey that the world can inspire one's imagination. Our video is more on the abstract side and can mean different things to different people.
Below is our presentation about our PBA:
Here are some behind the scenes pictures of our filming...
The most challenging part of the PBA was the editing process. We had all the footage we needed, but putting it all together and making the video sync with the music was difficult. We needed to figure out exactly how we wanted to pace the video. At certain points, we had some clips going way too fast and some that were too long. We were especially challenged when it came to figuring out the beginning and the end. We couldn't quite figure out how we wanted to start and end the video. Through a lot of trial and error we were able to find something that worked well. It was difficult to make the video flow because of the varying shots that we had. However, we tried to make a pattern, so that the everything would piece together. The critique went a lot better than I anticipated. I wasn't quite sure how good our video actually was, but was pleasantly surprised when I saw our critique results.
