It’s done!!! Final Project/ Weekly Summary

So with my final project I used the mediums of photography, writing, video and audio.

The Writing is a poem that I have written about being late.

Poem

The video. I acted out the poem as a video and added music to it to create the idea of being late.

The Audio- I used Audiacy to record myself reading the poem. After that I found sound effect on freesound.org to be able to enhance the poem though the sounds that would be made in the poem it’s self.

The Photography- I took photos and edited them into a slideshow to be able to show them off better.

 

So to reflect.

This was a fun project to do. At first I wanted to incorporate all the mediums into one video but was advised against it. So I decided that I wanted to tell the same story through all the different mediums. This was a bit of a challenge for me because I see a lot of movement in the poem. The easiest and yet the most time consuming part was the videos. I had to get a take that was just right. I took probably about 40 different videos before I got the ones that I needed.

The Audio wasn’t as bad as I had first thought it would be when as when I was first introduced to it.

The pictures was difficult one and I still don’t think that I incorporated enough, also a little nervous that making them into a slideshow of sorts in a youtube will count as video.

All in all, I really like the experience in making a piece  of writing to come to life in different mediums. At one time I wanted to be a director of movies and a writer. When I went to Shenandoah University for a semester I gave up on the director idea because every one was more into it than I was. I really just wanted to write, but as a writer who sometimes acts out a scene in my living room before writing it down on paper. I really enjoyed seeing one of my piece come to life in multiple different way. It has also made me want to recreate a few more pieces of my work.

Poem

Late

By: Kim Sealock

 

Ba Beep Ba Beeep.

An annoying buzz growing louder each minute.

Sleepy eyes peer into the dark basement room toward the obsessive beeping.

Barely making out the 7:32 before jutting up.

“Crap”

Racing around like the Flash, hoping to make good time.

Pajamas float to the floor like time had stood still,

pants are hopped on while racing to find a t-shirt.

Socks come next then shoes both put on while trying to get to the next place.

First t-shirt that is grabbed gets thrown on.

Throwing books into book bag,

trying to make a sandwich for lunch which ends up being bread with mustard on it

with Turkey, cheese and a pickle just thrown into the same bag to be constructed later.

Running military style with a 20lb book bag to the truck.

“This key never works.”

Trying to unlock a lock that like to stick.

“Finally.”

Throwing everything into the front passenger seat.

Hopping into the driver’s seat. Searching for the pill.

“Crap”

Running like a marathon runner back into the house to quickly grab it off the counter.

“Cat get out of the house.”

Is shouted to the oblivious cat who peeks around the door.

Trying to sprint back to the truck with a cat weaving figure eights under foot.

Starts the engine, races like the Duke Brothers down a gravel road wishing it was the General Lee.

Finally on the road.

“It’s not that late.”

Now finally calm from the hectic race against the clock.

“Crap I forgot to brush my teeth.”
