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.
