For 2.5 stars this week, I completed the Play it Backward, Jack assignment.
Things always look super weird when you play them in reverse, don’t they? So take a video of something in your life–someone running, the toilet flushing, the sink dripping, someone spitting, whatever–and reverse it!
For this assignment, I used two videos that I had recorded last semester. These were short clips, so they were a good length to experiment with. Since I am not usually a Mac user, it was difficult for me to get the hang of using iMovie. By using two video clips, it allowed me to experiment with transitions and prepare myself for more complex creations that we may have in the future. After completing this, I have realized that I don’t really like video editing as much as other assignment topics, but alas, I still have to make it through video week(s). However I do have to say that watching a goat run backwards is pretty funny… Enjoy!
