My subject for assignment five was an a cappella group’s practice. The group’s name is No Comment. One of the members told me they are called No Comment because one year they asked people who were trying out for the group what they think the group should be named. Someone wrote “no comment,” and the group thought it was funny, so it stuck. I started the video with their warm-up and ended with the music director’s comments on the groups progress to show a beginning, middle and end.
Editing the video went better than expected. I wish my frames were tighter for the interviews. I also chose not to use transitions because I did not think they were necessary, so I hope the video doesn’t look choppy. I had to play around with the sound a lot because sometimes the singing was too loud. I also almost wish I had more time than one minute because I thought I got a lot of good videos. It was hard to edit because I almost had too many videos to sort through. Loading the video to YouTube seemed to take a really long time, so I hope everything looks good when it’s online.
Overall, I’m happy with how my video turned out and glad that I finally shot an interesting subject.
