Still Video Project

This is an upload of my Still Video project for my Com 220 class. The goal of the assignment was twofold: 1) To take various still shots of a location at Elon and 2) edit the shots into a 40 second clip. The location I was given was Oak House, a local cafe with good coffee and lots of space for students to relax and work in.

The filming aspect of the assignment was more difficult than I anticipated. After some in-class practice I felt comfortable wit the camera and tripod, but for some reason I had trouble focusing the camera even though I used the “zoom in, focus, then zoom out” method multiple times. The employees of Ok House were fine with me filming, so long as I didn’t get in any customer’s way, hence why most of the filming is in several corners of the room.

The editing part of the project was much easier this time than the last editing project I did. I created a video log and paper edit to help me remember which segments of video to use. The audio levels were a bit tricky to get right as ambient noise was so quiet until something hit a table or chair and the sound would spike.

Audio Editing Assignment: Kindess Poem

 

This is the upload of my most recent assignment from my Creating Multimedia Content class. In this assignment, we were to edit together different audio clips from other students in the class to form the entire poem Kindness by Naomi Shihab Nye in Adobe Premiere. There were three main components of this assignment: the audio editing, the photoshop creation of the title card, and the uploading to Youtube. For the audio editing, I took the sound clips that I thought were the most clear for each line. I also added background music, ambient sounds (crickets), and a sound effect (bus noise). The music was taken from FirstCom Music and the sound effects were taken from Pro Sound Effects. The title card was a quick edit, just something that would be able to appear on any screen and for the specific resolution the audio file was edited in. Finally, the video was uploaded to Youtube to be embedded into this WordPress post.

Overall, this assignment was time consuming and tricky, but ultimately I believe I created a decent product for my very first audio edit.

Product Label Assignment

These are the mock product labels I created for my Comm 200 class. The assignment was to create two product labels, one needing to be for a 20 oz soda bottle, keeping in mid design elements and having good use of text on the label. Since we were making fake product labels, I decided to make them for two fake products, that being Nuka Cola from the Fallout games and Green Dragon Ale from the Lord of the Rings series. The unique fonts I used were downloaded from dafonts.com.

Magazine Cover Assignment

These pictures are the mock magazine covers that I created for my Comm 220 class. The assignment was to create two magazine covers, one with a picture I had taken myself, and add all the design elements that make up a magazine article, such as the cover title, side stories, and other elements. The two magazines I decided to make a cover for were Gameinformer and Vogue, with Vogue using the picture I had taken myself of my friend Mitzi.

Photo Manipulation Assignment

There photo collages were made for an assignment for my Comm 220 class. The goal was to take ten photos from the internet of something with significance to you and make a photo collage out of them using vector layers and one line of text. For my photo collages, I chose to make a collage of two of my favorite video games, Undertale and To The Moon. I also made a collage about my favorite breeds of large dogs as I am a huge dog lover. All of the photos used were not my own, but the collage work itself was.

Event Photos

These pictures were taken for a photography assignment for my Communications 220 class, were I was to take pictures of a specific event./ The event I chose was known as the Open Heart and Open Mind in the Sacred Space, an event of spiritual reflection and peacefulness. The Event took place at the Truitt Center at Elon University, and these photos focus on the people and specific object details at the event.
