Personal Reflections of my video projects
In the six word story project I had to take shots of objects or actions that related to a six word story that I had created. My story was about me having a lot of energy, which I have been told many times. During the project process I learned how to take different types of shots such as extreme tight, which really can bring out the true emotion of something or someone, and in addition I learned how to take an extreme wide shot, which really set the setting for my project. I took shots about all the energy I have, and all of the different forms it comes in. There were other shots that I learned such as birds eye and low angle, and high angle, which I also used in my project. In addition, I learned about other six word stories whiledoing research, and learned that even six words can have a very important message to it. During the project I had to reshoot some of my shots because the iris was either not properly adjusted or the white balance wasn't properly adjusted. I thought it was a interesting experience to get to bring home the nice cameras. I also learned during the editing process how to fully use final cut pro, and add transitions, titles, and color corrections. The color correction really helped me make the shot more clear or visible, and I used it for almost all my shots to make it look the most presentable.I really enjoyed the project as a whole, I think that it was a very educational, and fun.
