These past two weeks were pretty exciting for me, I was able to pull together my final project, which is the video link above. It interprets my love for technology and all the gadgets that I now possess. What I was hoping to portray in the video is my dependency on all of my electronics and technical devices that I use. What I mean when I say the “Thin Line Between Love and Tech” is that you know we love our cell phones and now it makes us accessible to others, and others accessible to us, but if my cell phone dies or my laptop is no longer working, I can’t send those emails, nor can I send texts, and then if I’m calling someone and they don’t answer the phone, or respond to my texts they’re not as accessible, as we tend to think one should be if they own their own device.
I spent a bit more time on filming than I planned, only because I didn’t feel like I could get the right angles. What’s really funny is some of the clips, I probably did 3 or 4 times, but I had to choose the right one and put it in there. With the help of iMovie, I was able to select the scenes I wanted and cut out the ones I don’t and bring them all together. I was also able to use that application to add special effects and captions. Audacity was used to boost and enhance the sound quality of the song after that the video was saved and uploaded to i-movie. Then, once I had both the video and audio on iMovie, I had to align my lip singing in the video with the song.
All in all, I must say I’m pleased. I enjoyed making my final project and I hope you enjoy watching, and hopefully you get something out of it.
