Week 5: Creating Content

Ok, so this week has been helpful. As I mention in the video below, I’ve done a lot of audio recording and editing in the past, but not a lot of video work. So, it was great for me to explore a few different ways of recording videos. For the test video below, I used Quicktime to record with my webcam and Blue Snowball mic, then I used iMovie to do a little color correcting to fix the awfulness of the fluorescent lights in my office. I’m hoping to use these tools weekly with my classes to cover the basics of the week’s assignments, and hopefully to demonstrate some of the concepts we talk about in class with performing. Here’s the video! (terrible preview shot)
