Recording a Memory
For this assignment, I was instructed to capture on video a friend, family member, or stranger recounting a favorite memory. I decided to capture my boyfriend recounting his favorite memory of us. Below is the finished product and how I created it:
This has been one of my favorite assignments thus far in the class. I began by asking Thomas if he would mind recounting his favorite memory of us for one of my videos. He typically doesn’t question what it’s for anymore ever since he knows I’m constantly doing tasks involving some form of media. But of course, he agreed to do it. I figured it would be easiest if I just set my laptop up for him and left the room so he could record in peace without me laughing and giggling in the background.
- After I got his permission, I set up my laptop and left the room to go make some green tea while I waited.
- Once I got the clear from him that he was finished, I went back to my room and began the editing process.
- I immediately wanted to add one of my favorite songs, “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” by Twenty One Pilots, to the background of the video.
- Then I wanted to add more of a personal touch after Thomas’ portion of the video cut off. Thus, I decided to add some of my favorite pictures from our trip to the end of the video. I loved how this video turned out!
