For this next video assignment, I chose to do the “Signing Words” project worth 5 stars. The Red Reaper has been very gracious today and lent me his assistance. He messed up a little bit but I don’t think it was too bad for a first attempt!
I used the YouTube editor to edit the video clip slightly.
For today’s daily create (11/5/15) we had to write a 6 line poem about our purpose in life. For a quick daily create, this was rather intimidating and personal but I gave it my best shot. Poetry isn’t my strong suit but here it is:
I want to make the world more transparent,
but not to the point where the color completely fades.
I want to feed the addiction that plagues the mind,
I thought that the notion of placing someone slightly right of the center to make them be in the most ideal place was quite interesting. Supposedly it has to do with golden ratios which I have learned about in several classes ranging from art to math.
A lot more goes into cinematography than I thought. There was an entire paragraph dedicated just to examples of movement and flow that tend to imply a certain theme when used properly.
I like how at the end he gives a disclaimer of taking everything you see with a grain of salt when interpreting them symbolically. Everything is always up for interpretation.
This week for 5 out of the 10 stars worth of video assignments required this week I did the DIY Product Commercial!
I filmed a video of myself raving about the new “Acne Hider” that is super easy to use and completely socially acceptable.
Here it is:
I wish the camera was better on my computer because the quality was pretty bad but I couldn’t use my phone because when I tried to transfer it to my computer the file was too large. Looking back now I probably could have just uploaded the video from my phone but oh well.
So this week was probably my favorite week but also one of the hardest ones for me. I found it difficult to incorporate so many host characters when we know so little about them. For example visual projects were pretty much out of the question because of the lack of pictures of hosts and same goes for video. It all worked out in the end though. I’m very happy with the assignments I created this week.^^
I really enjoyed tuning in to listen to the radio shows this week and I felt so semi-famous being on the internet radio via google hangouts. Good times 🙂

My last Assignment Bank project of the week is “That Bucket List Though” worth 2 stars.
This is what I imagine LaNoir’s bucket list to look like:
1: Find the perfect black scarf
2: Dance in the rain with Betty White
3: Mix her own perfume
4: Watch a tree she planted as a sapling grow into a towering home for the animals
5: Blend the perfect tea
There isn’t much in LaNoir’s character introduction but I got a very nature loving, mystical vibe from it. So that covers most of the bucket list and then everybody wants to dance with Betty White. Thats just a fact.
