For this assignment I decided to create a tutorial on how I complete my childhood representation video. I struggled a lot with this myself because it involved so many different programs. Here is my step my step of how to create a screen recording of […]
For my final assignment I chose Remembrance of Things Past (3.5 stars). This assignment said to create a representation of an important childhood location. I decided to go back to the origin story of my character and draw the first moment she was able to use her powers (even if only for a small amount of time).
I used the screen recording software in PowerPoint to record me using paint. Within paint, I used the “crayon” utensil to simulate a young Weather Woman drawing herself in the moment she first used her powers. A moment that seemed so weird to her, but that she would later discover was a important moment in her life. I used freesounds.org to get some drawing sounds, rain, and humming. I changed the pitch of the humming to be higher and seem more childlike. I am really happy with how this turned out. I originally planned to record myself actually drawing this picture when I remembered that paint had a crayon feature. I am really happy with how this turned out. The background sounds make it seem like she is just sitting inside on a rainy day and her subconscious remembered that hot day where a single drop fell from the sky.

For my select one assignment I chose to do a life hacks video.
For this assignment I chose three life hacks that I actually use in my own life. While I’m sure there are other videos out there of these hacks I did not look them up and instead stuck to those I used myself. Where I struggled with this assignment was somewhere unexpected. I do not own a tripod and was not able to got one from someone I know, so I had to get creative for some of the shots (sorry about the Pinnacle bottle, I couldn’t edit it out). However I made due and recorded three different hacks. The first is how to open a can of soda when you can’t get a finger under the tab to open it. This is not something I found online, but something I just did myself one day when I didn’t have anything else to try and open it with. It’s nice because it can work anywhere and I pretty much always have a ponytail on my so I’m always prepared for this hack. Next was a way to get clean, easy edges around your cuticles when you’re painting your nails. You put Elmers glue around your cuticle and then peel it off after you paint your nail while the polish is still wet. For this hack and the next one, I did see these online at some point, but they are real hacks in my life so I decided to include them. Finally, I have using a rubber band as a grip to help open stubborn nail polish. I liked to split form and ,music for this video because I thought it made it fun and like other life hack videos that I’ve seen. Overall, I really enjoyed this assignment.
For my first assignment I chose an art in 6 seconds assignment worth 4 stars.
