What Exactly Happened in Week 4?


It is incredible to believe that we are already in week 4 of this amazing adventure. This week was by far the most challenging of them all, I didn’t think that would be the case when I looked ahead a couple weeks ago…Back to the point; lets take a look at this week’s daily creates:

How well do you feel you completed the requirements of the week’s assignments?

I believe that I completed each assignment as it was described in week 4’s outline on the course website. I also believe that I spread out my work more evenly. Even though I published the posts on Sunday afternoon, I actually completed almost everything in a far more timely manor in comparison to the last three weeks of the course. Better late than never I suppose.

What gave you trouble? What did you enjoy most? What did you learn?

I would say that the thing that gave me trouble was also the most enjoyable part of the week. In my video assignments for the week, I made a sports highlight reel for the Washington Nationals. It was so much fun, but I got stuck a couple times while I was putting the clips together. The audio would mash together and create something that was horrible sounding. In the end, with my friends help, I was able to figure out how to fix it (locking lines that were not being edited). I learned a lot about digital storytelling through movies and other videos. The Look Listen Analyze assignment really opened my eyes to the different techniques that movie directors and producers explicitly use to bring out feelings like anxiety, suspense, and thrill to name a few.

What would you do differently? What questions to you have?

I don’t think I would have done anything differently, with the exception of spending a little more time on my fake commercial in my video assignments post. I think this week was explained well with the resources available, and I do not have any questions regarding the course content for the week.

Take a look at the rest of my work this week:
