Production Notes

Producing a video is not as easy as you think, neither is hard. As long as you know the skills and willing to spend time on your project, you pretty much can handle it. I am happy for how my video is now, but if I were given another chance, I will definly do it better. On my first video project, I learned a lot that I did not expect too. I learned how to communicate with others, especially on asking interesting and useful questions, so it turns out the interview becomes as interesting as it is. I also learned how to organize the audio piece and transfer to other files. And I learned lots from others’ videos too. They are amazing. For the most I did not expect to learn is how much time and heart to make a good video. It really takes time. You might hear thousands time of the interview conversation but you still have to do it again and again. My first video is simple, I added in pictures and videos during the interview, and trying to make the content and the pictures match. I think I did pretty well on that. For the most thing I would like to change is the music at the beginning and the end, I would like to make it fade in and fade out. But I was too rush so I did not have to time to figure out how to make it. After finished video project, I was always wondering how people made so nice connections and arrangements in the TV shows or movies. If I have a chance in the future, I will try my best to make my video project like movie.

I received the assignment today, and I found out the assignment is kind of interesting. I never test myself and see how many sounds I remember in a period of time. So I went to have a walk without phones. I walked around the neighborhood at noon today.
First, I heard raindrops when I first step out of the house. It was pretty rainy today. I crossed the street and I heard the sounds of cars. They all sound different, some of them were making sounds from the engineers, some of the sounds are from the ties, and some of them...I am not really sure where they come from. I heard the people slapped on the car door when they got off from the car. There were one of them are female, because I could hear her high heels. Then, I followed the path and kept walking. I heard the birds were singing on the trees. They were sweet and nice. As I was walking down to the path, I saw a group of children were playing ball. They were laughing, screaming, and talking. They were loud. After I walked by them, there is a construction nearby. The construction workers were talking, probably discussed of the work. I returned to my court, and I heard dogs were barking from far away. Then I came back home.
I tried my best to remember every sound that I have heard on my walk. But I guess I did not remember all, and the above lists were the sounds which attracted me most on my walk and it was fun!
