The 3 years I have been in Broadcast Tech I have m ade videos about how I started on Youtube and Ive touched on my past a bit, But not enough. And that sthe purpose of this video, I went back in time even back to the late 2000s. Most of the videos are sourced from my Youtube channel yet there are a few here and there that are before I started Youtube. Overall the video turned out just have I invisioned it, A very nostalgic feel that carrys on through the video. The way I edited the video makes you focus on the clips more versus there being to many clips back to back to back which makes it easier to miss somthing. In conclusion this was a great project and I like how much freedom we had, I am also very happy with how my video turned out.
For this project I decided to focus on what I do outside of class. I feel like I havent touched on my TikTok pages and have brought up my Youtube channel many times but I have yet to talk much about any of my business deals within social media. Therefor I decided to show off a few of my TikToks that I have made for Waterway Carwash and SchoolTube.com. I think that these TikToks show my passion and love for film and marketing as a whole. I enjoyed this project because it finally gave me the chance to show what I work on outside of school when it comes to film.
Ladue View Take 2 is filed with many great videos that hold much talent, Mine unfortunately didn't make it in the final show and here's why I think it didn't. My video is a person video about my growth and it just didn't fit in with the concept of the show. Even Though my video particularly didn't make it into the show I still played a big roll. I edited the entirety of Ladue View start to finish which helped me understand patience when editing a longer show such as Ladue View. After witnessing the show first hand, I have realized how good this group students is as adapting, Learning and working with each other. One of the biggest challenges we faced while producing the show was the new concept of MC's. Emaa and I just weren't fit for the job and we made an executive decision to hand it over to Fiona and mate. I personally faced the difficulty of reviewing the videos that where in the show and being able too describe and bring the show together off the top of my head. I get successful and fulfilled when I downloaded the final cut of Ladue View Take. It always feels great to finish something you worked hard on. Seeing the finished product is a great feeling but seeing the cooperation and overall drive to understand and finish the show to best best of their ability was a great feeling and showed how much compassion went into creating the show. Next show I will be an editor again, During the recording of the show I will be supervising and taking notes that I will use further down in the production process. A great way to promote the show and get more attention especially from students would be to incorporate the students. When the students are apart of the show they may be more compelled to go and watch, tell there friends and to come back for the next one. Overall Ladue View Take 2 turned out amazing and the experience in the studio was just as amazing!
For my 60 second video I decided to do somthing a little outside of my confort zone, "My weekend in 60 seconds". I pulled this off by having my camera by my side 24/7 for 2 days straight. From cenimatic shots to vlog style shots this 60 second video is packed with a phomominal storyline. The videos are edited to the beat which took me longer than it should have yet I think its worth it after seeing the finished product. If I had to change one thing about the video I would 100% go back and film a video that I am in to end it off as the last shot. Meaning I am the main character and focal point in the shot. other than that I would say that I pulled off "My weekend in 60 Seconds" greatly and I learned that trying somthing new always pays off one way or another:)
For my Last video of the semester I decided to do a video about myself. I did one in sophmore year and freshman year so why not keep the trend going. Instead of doing my traditional way of filming I decided to vear off path a bit and do somthing different. I has a classmate take a podeom with caster wheels and roll it twoards me while I walked backwards while the camera was rolling. It gives it a walk through type style that i think gives the video a bit of spice. The only downside is that the constant change in background could distract the viewer since its not consistant throught the video like my average video. I imformed the viewers about my growth on TikTok and other achivements i have had over my time doing social media Overall I learned a new way to film and I hope to try it again and make it flow better new time!
For this project I decided to do a video about Broadcast and show a little bit behind the scenes with a unique video style. I cut the video into two sections by starting out the video by me holding the camera and having more of a vlogger feel. Then it moves to a few Broll shots and then a black screen. The black screen also cuts off the background music and then after about a second a new instrumental starts playing. With the start of the new background music comes interviews of classmates asking them about their experiences in Broadcast and what they think about the learning enviroment. I belive I pulled off this Youtube/News package style video greatly and showed great Broll and creative shots throughout.
For my 60 Second project i decided to do a video I like to call "Welcome To Ladue". Its a welcoming video highlighting the strongpoints and different oppertunitys at Ladue. I added a creative introduction by downloading Google Maps Pro and doing a zoom from outer space into Ladue Horton Walkin Highschool. Then I introcude myself and say "Welcome to Ladue". I used a very light enthusiast beat that grabs the viewers attention. I edited to the beat and to the unique sounds embedded in the beat. Overall this is definitely in my top 3 favorite projects I have completed.
For my latest project I decided to dive into a subject that I am extremely passionate about, RPM Stl! RPM Stl is a large car club around the St.Louis area that I am a huge part of. I decided to show my passion and dedication for this club by making a video about it and what we have achieved. I really enjoyed creating the video due to the project itself not having very many guidelines. I had a blast incorporating various videos and information into my project. I worked hard to make sure that the viewer would be engaged the whole duration of the video and that it would be an intriguing information video with many graphics and videos. Overall I believe that it turned out amazing and I am very happy with the end product!
Since the first time I stepped into my first broadcast technology class over a year ago I have grown greatly and my 60 second video reflects that perfectly. For my 60 second video I decided to share my background on Youtube and my growth over the last 4 years. Deciding what to share and include in the video was tough but I think that's what made it fun. Figuring out the best parts of the story and fitting into a 60 second video was challenging yet exciting. I feel as if it made us think a bit more on how we should approach the project and made us really think about what really needed to be included. Finishing this project with a smile on my face was one of the best parts of the whole assignment for me. I Went from 11-12 minutes of footage to 1 minute of footage by taking the best sound bites and configuring them to fit the storyline. I was truly impressed by all the different approaches and outcomes of all the 60 second videos from my classmates and I feel as if this project really showed the amount of creativity in our class. Overall this has definitely been one of my favorite projects and I can't wait for what's to come.
During the Humans Of Ladue project I learned a lot about interviewing and what is needed to create a complete news package. When it comes to interviewing I learned lots about the composition and what it takes to get enough footage and what to do to prepare for an interview. For example I had to go to my subjects house to get b-role and interview him. Something else I learned is when it comes to editing, Picking out the best sound bites and picking through the footage is crucial. Having more then enough footage is great when it comes to the editing stage. I also learned that when editing and filming, Little things can distract the viewer and can take the focus off the subject. Checking your equipment before use is also something you should always do to prevent any problems when you are ready to film. Those are some of the main things I learned from the Humans Of Ladue Project.
