What I personally learned from this assignment was that the making and video editing has its challenges, however given time and your investment, as many other things you’ll become great at it. I enjoyed the making of this short clip, as I shy away from the camera, this has inspired me to make even more videos of similar nature and maybe even take it further than that. The video is a composition of my artistic development and how it has improved with each slide. There is only room for improvement moving forward. The main lesson is don’t give and just keep trying, there is a solution to every problem.
In this assignment we chose a random quote. The quote I have chosen is “good things take time.” I know every person has endured some type of pain/hardship leaving you feeling unmotivated. This quote is a reminder to keep pushing forward, that better things are coming. Life is what you make of it and your reaction to it also contributes to your outcomes. I had a few design ideas to approach this quote.
How do we interpret this quote into a visual quote? The first concept I had was translating the word good into a rose and to represent time I chose a clock. My thoughts on this was how comforting and visually appealing is a rose? With many smooth curves and self contrast, I chose this being a symbol of good. In what better way to represent time I asked myself and I chose the clock to represent time.
However time can be interpreted in may other ways, as per my second concept is an hourglass next to a clock and the text “good things take time.” The layout of this concept was not to my liking but it was inspiring my thought process on how the layout should be. Having seen this concept I moved forward to a half made clock and the text smacked in the middle of the clock.
