Sports Mashup Game Winners

The Work Itself 

This video assignment is titled “Sports Mashup“, its instructions are to “submit a video mashup of what you think are some of the greatest sports plays ever. What is the story it tells? This needs to be more than just a montage of clips, find a way to make it present a theme, an arc of ambition, a message about the moments.” It is rated 4/5 stars in terms of difficulty. I created a YouTube compilation video of game winning plays from this past year in the NCAAF, MLB, NFL, and NBA. My video is titled “We Won!“.

The Story Behind The Story 

Sports are fun to watch because no one knows what is going to happen at any point in time of a game. The results are unpredictable. I especially love game winning scores as time expires. It is very exciting, especially when the underdog team is on the winning side of it. I created this video of game winning plays to share with the public of everything they may have missed. Personally, I scored a game winning goal in my junior year in lacrosse. I remember the play and definitely the celebration like it was yesterday. It is one of my happiest memories, so I understand the emotions that these athletes feel when they win the game.

The Process, Narrated 

I cut and pasted several clips from numerous YouTube videos.  I downloaded the videos using http://en.savefrom.net/. I then opened iMove and loaded the videos I had just previously downloaded. In iMovie, I trimmed and edited the video to use only the portions I want. I did this by dragging the yellow bar to the left and right in the timeline. Right after, I clicked “TRIM” to complete the editing.In the video editor, because the video is edited, I simply just dragged it into the “insert video” section, created a title slide and that was it.  I saved the video, and shared it to YouTube. I uploaded it to my channel and published it to the public.  Below are a few photos to document my process.

I love…Food!

The Work Itself

This assignment is titled “What Do You Love?”. The instructions are to “choose something that you love and make a video of it! My assignment is titled “I love Food“, it can be found on my YouTube channel. You can take pictures or videos and combine them into one final video. Try to find music that has to do with the thing you love and add it to the video. Make sure to add a title and give credit to those outside sources!”. This assignment is rated 3.5/5 stars for difficulty. I created a YouTube video of various food images.


The Story Behind The Story

I love food, all types and sorts of food. I especially love breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A good breakfast will result in a good morning, and it starts the day off a good note. A hobby of mine is cooking, and eating, mostly eating. I want to try different cuisines, because there are so many good foods that can be prepared in a multitude of ways. For example eggs can be prepared “sunny side up”, “over-easy”, “poached”, or “scrambled”, and the list goes on.

The Process, Narrated
I created a mental list of my favorite breakfast foods and drinks. I then googled each item, found an image and then downloaded each image. I then went into YouTube Video Editor and uploaded all my breakfast images. I dragged each photo individually to the editing bar. I created a text of the food to each image (i.e. “Eggs” for the image of eggs). I trimmed each photo to three seconds. I created a intro title slide and inserted text into it and trimmed it to 3.5 seconds. I then created a conclusion slide with text and trimmed that to 3.5 seconds as well. When the editing was completed, I published it to my channel. Here are a few photos documenting my process.

Will Ferrell Highlights

The Work Itself 

This video assignment is titled “Favorite Actor/Actress Highlight Reel“. Its instructions are to “create a 30 to 60 second highlight reel of your most enjoyable movie scenes from your favorite Actor/Actress”. It is rated by the public 4/5 stars for difficulty. I created a YouTube video of my favorite scenes and clips of Will Ferrell and mashed them together to make a highlight reel. Will Ferrell is one of the funniest, and goofiest actors I have ever seen. My video is titled “Will Ferrell Highlights“, it is on my YouTube channel.

The Story Behind The Story 

Will Ferrell is one of the funniest actors of my time. Every movie of his is a comical. My favorite Will Ferrell movie is “Talladega Nights, The Ballad of Ricky Bobby“. There are so many great scenes and clips of Will Ferrell, so I wanted to a create a compilation of his funniest moments in television. If there ever becomes an award for most comical actor in the last decade or even century, then viewers will be inclined to nominate Will Ferrell after watching this video. I have seen almost every movie that Will Ferrel stars in, and have laughed at every film.

The Process, Narrated 

I cut and pasted several clips from a handful of Will Ferrell YouTube videos. I downloaded the videos using http://en.savefrom.net/. I then opened QuickTime Player and loaded the video I had just previously downloaded. In QuickTime, I trimmed the video to use only the portions I want. I did this by dragging the yellow bar to the left and right in the timeline. Right after, I clicked “TRIM” to complete the editing. I saved the video, and inserted it into YouTube video editor. In the video editor, because the video is edited, I simply just dragged it into the “insert video” section, created a title slide and that was it. I uploaded it to my channel and published it to the public. Here are some photos documenting the described process. 

 

 

Lights Out (Highlight Reel)

The Work Itself

This assignment is titled “Highlight Reels”, its instructions ask to “channel your inner ESPN and clip together highlights of your favorite athlete, set it to some music, and add an intro.” It is rated 5/5 stars for difficulty. I created a YouTube video using individual clips from other YouTube videos. I created a highlight reel of Mike Tyson knockouts in his professional boxing career. I chose what I thought to be his best knockouts. By best I mean power, speed, and skill.  My title for the video is “Lights Out”, it can be found on my YouTube channel.

The Story Behind The Story

Mike Tyson was one of the greatest boxers of all time. In his prime he can be compared to Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis, Roberto Duran, and Floyd Mayweather in terms of talent, accomplishments, and greatness. Of his 50 wins, 44 came by way of knockout. He was bigger, stronger, and faster than anyone else in his weight class in his prime. He knocked out Trevor Berbick in the second round in November 1986 to become youngest heavyweight champion in history. He has been inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame and the World Boxing Hall of Fame.

Participation/Comments

I commented on five blog posts from my classmates. I commented on daily creates and video assignments. I looked at far more assignments than the ones I posted a comment on. Everyone did a great job as usual. It is fun too see the video assignment topics, and what other people did. Once again, it is helpful looking at other posts because in the example of Andrew Boswell’s “Slow Motion Pie Attack” I read his process and from there I was able to create my “Instant Replay”

Here are the links to my five comments: “Boswell Instant Replay“, “Tori Conflict of Self-Interest“, “Rachel Inspirational Lyrics“, “Kelsey Selfie Story“, “Miranda Sign Language
