Caution: Wet Floor

The Work Itself

This video assignment is titled “Instant Replay“, its instructions are to “choose a video or clip of an action, and then pick a part of the original clip and slow it down to create an instant replay.  Show both the original action as well as the slow-mo instant replay! Video editing software, like iMovie can come in really handy for an assignment like this!” It is rated 4/5 stars in terms of difficulty. I downloaded a YouTube prank video and imported it into iMovie. I edited the video to the proper length I wanted it and then edited the actual slip action into a slow motion replay. My video is titled “Caution: Wet Floor“.

The Story Behind The Story

Pranks are fun if you are the one pranking, but not so much if you are being pranked. I have been apart of some great pranks and thankfully have been the pranker more than the pranked. However this prank tops all of mine. My aunt buttered the floor while her son was showering. As you can see, my cousin wipes out and remains down for the count. Let it be known, do not get on my aunt’s bad side or what happened to my cousin could happen to you!

The Process, Narrated

I found a video on YouTube of a prank. I downloaded the video and converted it to a QuickTime video via http://en.savefrom.net/ . I then imported it into iMovie and edited the video to the beginning and ending of the action. I highlighted the section I wanted to put into slow-motion by dragging the yellow bars left and right and then clicked “modify”, then “slow motion”, then “50%”. Here a few photos of my process.
