Week 10 Summary

The assignments this week allowed me to continue to stretch my video-editing skills.  Two of these projects directly related to finding particular patterns/tropes across film.  For example, for one of the assignments I found five instances of the reluctant hero trope, while for another I made a supercut of dramatic screaming in movies.  Both remind me of phenomena that have percolated on the internet (such as the alignment system and various supercut YouTube videos).  I also made a mashup type video where I layered Oh Fortuna over the music video for Sia’s The Greatest.  This was a fun exercise that reiterated the importance of audio in regards to tone, and how a simple change can lead to incredibly interesting effects.

The daily creates this week allowed for some fun creative exercises.
