In this class which is Video Production we learn different filming skills from learning different type shots to making short films. All these skills are going to be important in the future because certain opportunities can come up that have to do with this and you will already have experience on it. In this project we had to make a public service announcement to show how they treat any type of farm animal and to show the cruel truth of how they're treated and to try and persuade people to not support this and inform them of their unfair living conditions.
This project was a collaboration between two different classes video production and Agriculture. In agriculture class we were learning about how bad farm animals are treated and their horrible living conditions. This lead to us making a public service announcement in video production about this topic. In this assignment we had to make a informative and persuasive video of the terrible living conditions of farm animals for example chickens and pigs and how bad they are treated even if they are labeled as “cage free”. Some of the requirements for this project was doing voiceovers and obviously including photos. My teammate and I chose to do our PSA on swine and how bad they are treated. We had to research a little more about this so we could have solid evidence to back up our statement. We also had to make a story board and put everything we were going to include in our video. After we read articles we had information to include so we put pictures to backup the evidence put a couple voiceovers and the solution and we were done. Some of the things I learned from doing this project was definitely how the pigs are treated that but most importantly I learned how to transition photos, how to make text move, how to add voice overs and how to add text. This work shows me that after I start to practice something I get the hang of it and can add a lot of good things that will make the project better.
Two of the SLO I demonstrated in this artifact were thinking creatively and critically and self director who communicates effectively. I demonstrated thinking creatively and critically because without creativity I wouldn’t be able to add all the transitions and photos and all the small things to make the video better. Another of these SLO I demonstrate was self director who communicates effectively because to make the video it was all up to us and we had to choose what we were going to include. I also had to communicate with my partner so we wouldn’t do double work. A SLO I could of demonstrated better would be mastering skills because I am just beginner and I still have a lot to learn.
One of the most important things I have learned in this class would be the different shot types because before I was in this class I thought every clip is the same but now I have a different perspective when I watch something. Another important thing I learned this year would be how to edit video on premiere pro. When you make a video this is an important factor to make it look better and more professional with the minimum flaws as possible. These skills will help me in the future because you see a lot of ads now a days and if you ever have to do this you will have experience on doing this.
