Video Assignments: Sweet Message

“Create a video for someone special in your life and add music to it. Use YouTube or any of the video sites to upload it. First, video tape yourself saying a message about the person your talking about. Let your feeling out, tell them how you feel about them or that your happy about being with them. Second, put music to it. This should be about 3 or so minutes long, nothing major. You combine video, writing and audio.” For this video, I chose to talk about my fiance Ryan! He is the love of my life! I used Windows Movie Maker to make this video. I get camera shy so I’m sorry for the awkward moments.

Video Assignments: Signing Words

“This assignment requires you to take a video of yourself or someone else and finger spell a word or a phrase in Sign Language alphabet and let others guess what you have spelled. Make sure you do a word that is bigger then 5 letters so you can learn some of the letters.” I am currently taking Sign Language so this assignment instantly caught my eye! In this video, I am signing “My name is ______.” I finger spell my first name. I’ll go a little slow so beginners can follow. I love ASL and I also had fun making this video. I also used Windows Movie Maker. It took a long time (about an hour) trying to figure out how to save my project in a .mp4 format. It was frustrating but it’s finally uploaded to my blog.
