FINAL DEADLINE for Video Project posted on YOUR EPORTFOLIO site will be December 7th
Here is a list of what your video should be and have:
- Length: 60 seconds to 3 minutes.
- Subject: Your autobiography, depicting yourself as an artist and a student.
- Set a good title. End the video with credits, your name as director.
- Have music (royalty-free) incorporated into it at some point. Can be at the beginning or at the end.
- Post it on YouTube, Vimeo, or Google Drive and a link it to your openLab site.
- Write a paragraph explaining the assignment and what you learned from doing this assignment, what challenges you faced, etc.
You can show yourself talking or/and have a slideshow of some of your favorite work.
Looking for things to talk about during your autobiographical video? Take a look at a questionnaire game to get you started thinking about what you might say.
The 2nd choice is to do an interview with someone from your family about life during the pandemic. It should still be 60 seconds to 3 minutes in length, following the same instructions as above.
See the video below with artists talking about their work for inspiration.
Video can be edited using any software of your choice: iMovie (free on every Mac), Premiere Rush (part of Adobe Creative Cloud), FinalCut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, etc. See this article for a list of Professional Editing Software and their pros and cons: https://filmora.wondershare.com/video-editor/best-professional-video-editing-software.html?/topic/2234-insert-a-blank-line-in-edit-pdf-mode/&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpdqM_d2O6wIVCaGzCh3UhQsfEAAYAiAAEgK_TvD_BwE
