DS106 Recording a Memory

THE ASSIGNMENT:  Capture on video a friend, family member, or stranger recounting a favorite (or least favorite) memory. Then be creative.

THE PROCESS:  I used photo’s from one of the most memorable experiences of my life, and then arranged them in a video creator program on my computer.  I added music as well as some added effects, such as gradients and zooming features.  I uploaded this video to You Tube and then embedded this video to my WordPress page. The process took about two hours to complete and I’m very satisfied by the outcome.

THE STORY:  I’ve always wanted to create a video with the pictures that I had from a couple years ago, but never had the time or patience in order to do so.  This assignment gave me the opportunity to sit down and put together a creative video of my experiences, and I’m very pleased with the outcome.  The only thing that I do not like about this video is the point where the two songs merge together.  I couldn’t figure out how to do a smoother  audio transition, but regardless, it turned out the way I wanted it to.  You can’t have a future without remembering the past,  Enjoy!

    Bummer, I guess I got here to late. I notice that UMG has blocked the video for viewing in this country. Do you still have the orignal video? Let me know via email and we can figure out a way to get it to me. If you don’t have the original video could your write up a list of the clips you used so we can figure out how this got blocked? Thanks.

      I think it was because of one of the songs that I used during the video. I’ll see what I can do about e-mailing the video, I tried once already and it wouldn’t allow me to send it due to the format. Thanks for the reply!
