Things Duckie Says

For this assignment, for 5 stars, I did a Supercut video featuring funny things Duckie from Pretty in Pink says. I used a video of Duckie Clips I found on Youtube, downloaded it, and then edited and cut it so that I could get it how I wanted. I focused on funny phrases that he said, so the video that was originally 4 minutes long, I cut down to 1:30. He’s my favorite character, and he says a lot of bizarre things so I wanted to incorporate that. It took a lot of cutting at the right times and editing it. I added a title and beginning and credits scene to add more production level. After finishing, I was able to upload this to vimeo. I got lucky that there was already a youtube video showing short clips of Duckie, but it was up to me to supercut it so that it was only phrases that I wanted. The scenes are no longer than 5 seconds long, so I was really cutting and chopping it. It goes chronologically throughout the movie, so it’s also fun to see him from beginning to end with his personality. I hope you enjoy!

Motorola DynaTAC 8000x

For this assignment, for 5 stars, I wanted to create an 80’s themed advertisement video. I chose to feature the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x because it was invented in 1984 and became one of the world’s first cell phones so it was a very important innovation of the decade. I took to iMovie for this assignment, chose my type, and then went to editing. This week, I focused a lot on my transitions and adding more to add to the production level. With this video, I explain what it is, what it does, and how much it is. I added transitions between each slide, music in the background, and added titles for a majority of the slides as well. I do some voiceover with the audios to explain what I wanted to, so I had to adjust the audio. It’s about 38 seconds, which I believe is short and sweet but also gets the point across. I had so many problems with my MAC with it continuing to shut down on my computer, but I finally got it to save. I had to upload it to Vimeo just because it would NOT upload to Youtube no matter what I did. Here is my assignment!
