Client Based Honors Project
This is a video I made for my youth group at church. It is used after our 5:30 service ends to inform high schoolers that our youth session will begin in 15 minutes and to provide announcements that we give each week. I primarily used Adobe Premier Pro to make this video but a lot of other software was used also. I began by filming Ty and Nick in our filming studio and recorded both the audio (from a boom mic) and video (from a DSLR camera) and synced the two pieces together using PluralEyes. Then filmed the B-roll film using my iPhone 5S (as audio would not be necessary and the film quality is great). When the filming was completed I pieced together the video segments and made key frames for the different video sizes and placements. Throughout this process I also made a few Photoshop images or overlay, one of which was used for the timer part of the video which needed to be made in After Effects using the clock function and some basic masking. The last part was blurring out the contact information of the iPhone previewing our texting service. I had never used After Effects before so learning how to use it and make the clock function work showed some difficulty. Rendering out transparent video was also new to me but the project turned out much better than I thought it would. I had a great time making this project and learned a lot through the experience.
Second Honors Project
This is another video that I made for our youth group. It is a "Year in Review" video that will be shown at our end of the year party called "Rewind". The primary audio and some of the animated clips I used from Animation Domination High-Def. I first made a countdown video in After Effects of a simple timer counting down from around 10 encircled with rotating shapes with a simple "beep" sound effect. I had initial difficulty prioritizing time on this project and not wasting time with things like overlaying the "5" for 2015", but when I did make the "5" I found that to make perfectly straight line in Photoshop, you just click the brush tool whilst holding the "shift" key. Learning this made adding 3D to the "5" very simple. I very much enjoyed making this project primarily in Adobe Premier Pro.
