Video Assignment One – Sports is What I Love

What Do You Love?

Description of Assignment: Choose something that you love and make a video of it! 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.

In order to create this assignment I used a website called Stupeflix. This website made it very easy to complete this assignment. I highly recommend using it not only for this assignment but for anything were you would like to create a video using photos.

First, I just clicked Add and then clicked the “add photos and videos” button which aloud me to choose either from things already saved to my computer or I could browse their library of pictures/videos.

Next, after uploading all of the photos I wanted to be in my video, I clicked the “add audio” button and chose whatever song I wanted off youtube and saved it to my computer and then took it from my files and uploaded it. You can also search their library of songs. After doing this I clicked on the “Themes” button in the top right and found a theme I wanted. After finding the theme, my video was complete! Super easy and fun! (Link under picture to video)

So here it is!!!

 

I chose this assignment because I thought it would be pretty fun and interesting to do. I also figured it would be challenging considering I have never really made a video this way.

I chose to create my video for this assignment on sports. I incorporated a ton of sports into this video, of course having my three favorite sports be the first three pictures shown in the video. The others after that are in no particular order. I chose soccer as my first favorite because I have played it all my life and it has always played a big role in my life. Soccer has taught me so much. My second favorite sport I chose was football. I love this sport because there is never really a dull moment. Just about every second is interesting and that interest me. Also, all the plays and runs that are made are very cool to see. My third favorite sport I chose was baton. I twirled baton from the time I was two all the way until I graduated high school. I know coach baton. Some people may not consider this a sport, but I beg to differ. It is definitely a sport and we compete against others just as in other sports. The song I chose to go with this was “Don’t Stop Believing.” I thought that this was an appropriate song to go with a sports video because when you are an athlete you can never stop believing.

This particular Video Assignment is related to the concept of digital storytelling. This is because I created a video that tells a story of not only my three favorite sports but also of just about all sports I could think of.
