I just finished a remixed music video of Marilyn Manson’s “Beautiful People.” I love this song, but I always thought the music video was excessively creepy, so I decided to take it to a less creepy level, by combining some concepts from the original video and videos from other songs. The original video featured many masochistic themes and repeated video of worms.
I used iMovie to botch together many clips from a couple different videos, and timed them all to match the music to the best of my ability. The process was quite grueling, but with the right focus I was able to piece it together in no time!
This was a three and a half star assignment, and I think as far as work goes, it deserves every star because the video editing was very intensive. The audio editing required minuscule effort, however.
Today I did a combination of the song “Say Something, I’m Giving Up On You” by A Great Big World featuring Christina Aguilera, and the Kris James and Lauren Legato cover. I downloaded both songs using 4k Video Downloader, and loaded them into audacity.
After fiddling with the beginnings of the songs, I got them to match in cadence relatively well. Although there are a few hiccups, I feel that the mashup worked well, and the outcome is some good listening!
I think the two songs work very well together, and when overlapped, it does add to the emotion! I was surprised to see how well it actually ended up! Especially after I noticed a difference in cadence between the two, it worried me, but when listening to the song as a whole, my heart is warmed, as this song should do.
Hopefully you all enjoy the mashup as much as you enjoy the original song!
Working on catching up some of the work I missed out on in the early part of the semester.
Today, I decided to do a sort of audio remix on the song “Rap God” by Eminem. I have used Audacity to do some audio editing that consists of reducing the speed of the track, adding a slight echo to add some character, and changing the pitch at times that I found fitting. The change in pitch was meant to match the mood of the verse, and I decided to change the pitch of the chorus to make it sound like Eminem, even though it was sped up.
I also downloaded the video and the clean edit of the track using 4k Video Downloader, and patched them together so that the audio I created in Audacity fit with the visuals of the video.
This was a 3 star assignment, uploaded to youtube. I wish I could do more with the audio, but the pitch and speed changes at least offer a little in the way of a remix.
I just finished my last mashup assignment in which I combined two video games into one! I play League of Legends and I thought, “what better for this assignment than to combine the two largest PC games in the world into one?” So I decided to combine League of Legends with World of Warcraft, and came up with “League of Legends in a World of Warcraft.” The title is a little bit wordy, but I think it flows!
I used Adobe Photoshop to complete the mashup, and I chose an iconic League of Legends background photo for the background of the project. I briefly thought about combining a World of Warcraft background as well, like possibly doing half League of Legends half World of Warcraft, but I couldn’t find another large image to use for the World of Warcraft portion, so I just stuck with the League of Legends background. I removed the backgrounds in the logos in order to create a more realistic cover, and reveal more of the background image.
Today I created a logo of my favorite football teams, the University of Georgia Bulldogs and the Atlanta Falcons, combined with a League of Legends competitive video gaming team, Team SoloMid. Most of you probably won’t recognize the TSM logo, but it is the logo I placed on the Bulldog’s shoulder.
I used Adobe Photoshop CS6 to complete this project. I learned a lot about layer management through this since there are so many ways to combine your layers on top of one another.
Let me know what you think, or if you recognize the TSM logo!!!
Today I produced a mashup of my favorite clips from multiple movies starring the Joker. Most of the clips used were from Heath Ledger’s Joker because he is my favorite Joker, but I also included clips from Jack Nicholson as The Joker. I really enjoyed Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto Joker, but because of the recency of this movie it is difficult to find many clips of the film. I put a popular scene towards the end to let the viewers know I haven’t forgotten about Suicide Squad.
I used iMovie to complete the production of this mashup, and added titles to let the viewers know which movie the clip is from, and which actor was The Joker.
The production was relatively pain-free, the videos came from movie clips on Youtube that I downloaded and cut up in order to keep the video relatively short.
Today I decided to take a piece of art I created in my spare time, and turn it into a paper airplane! The video was only supposed to be three seconds, and mine is close to that, but I took a little time at the end to show you how the airplane flies. The soundtrack used is “Civilization” by Andrews Sisters and Danny Kaye. I remembered this song from the video game Fallout 4, it was one of my favorites songs on the post-apocalyptic radio station, so I decided to look it up and use a segment for this clip! The video was done using iMovie, like all of the video work I have done. Enjoy it and let me know what you think!
Did a reaction video today, I found this song by one of my favorite artists, Tech N9ne and thought “what better time to listen to it for the first time than while recording a reaction video”, so you get to witness me while I see Tech drop these hot bars. This song was amazing, though my reaction, not so much. I find it difficult to get into the reaction, although I found watching the video incredibly moving.
The production was done using iMovie. After a bit of tinkering with iMovie I found how to overlay videos using picture in picture, which allowed me to show the video in full screen, with my reaction in the corner.
This video seems extremely controversial because it addresses some of the pressing issues with officer involved shootings we have been seeing lately. I love Tech N9ne for many reasons, not the least of which is that he offers a new perspective in Hip Hop on education, crime, parenting, and many other issues such as these. This video shows that in situations like the one depicted, one wrong move can lead to a whirlwind of consequences, and that turns can be taken in either direction, resulting in a completely different outcome. In some of his other songs he speaks of his role in parenting and how he blames parents for many of the child’s issues, and he also flames the education system for many of the problems in today’s youth.
Today I am writing about a video I made describing my personal goals, and providing an example of what that goal looks like. The goal is to become a professional League of Legends player, or streamer. The video shows a montage of a very popular internet celebrity League of Legends player, Tyler1. His content is known for its entertaining qualities, and his high level of skill at playing the game. Players such as Tyler1 make more money than you might expect, through sponsorships and donations, and he and others like him have formed well sustaining careers based off their twitch.tv streaming channels as well as their youtube channels, where videos of them playing are posted daily.
This video was relatively easy to create, I simply filmed myself talking about my dream, loaded it into iMovie, removed a few hiccups, and added a video of a Tyler1 montage to show you what type of goal I am referring to. The montage was much longer, so I edited it down quite a bit in iMovie in order to consolidate the idea.
