Monday Sept. 30th
Okay, so our professor wasn’t there during class today so we watched all the videos we created for our video narrative project. It was really cool seeing the route that people went with their stories. There were people who drew all of their pictures and videos within the videos. There people who had background tracks and those that didn’t. I realize the ones that got the most acclaim were those that played on peoples’ heartstrings or that were found funny. The soundtracks enhanced these feelings and really helped you get into the narrative.
I realized while watching that the songs in the background were really pretty necessary. Even if you created a pretty bad narrative, your video could probably still be popular as long as you had good images and a well-known song. It’s amazing how much we, as viewers, are willing to forgive as long as something sounds nice or looks pretty.
