A trip to Remeber

For my final assignment I am doing this week I decided to create my own project. I tasked myself with creating a video of a place I have visited in the past. I have visited places from Disney to the beach to Gettysburg. So for this assignment I made a slide show of my pictures from Gettysburg.

I choose to do this for one major reason. I love history and my assignments so far have not emphasized that. So for my final assignment I wanted to make it all about history and my love for it.

To focus on my love for history I first uploaded pictures in to Windows Movie Maker. I added transitions to all the pictures and then added music to the clip. For the music I choose Battle Hymn of the Republic. I made this choice for two reasons. First, it’s a song from the civil war era and made sense to include in a clip of Gettysburg pictures. Second, I remember going to church and hearing the choir sing the song. I’ve always loved the song and its melody. It provided me with a sense of bliss when I was young, as it does now.

So this project fits in well with the overall theme of me. It focuses on my love for history while also incorporating an important part of my life, as well as nice memories. I believe this video clip to be my best video yet. That however may be due to personal bias and my love for history. Regardless I had a lot of fun creating it.

  1. “For my final assignment I am doing this week I decided to create my own project.” Get rid of “I am doing.” It is redundant since you already stated it is your final assignment.

    “I choose to do this for one major reason. I love history and my assignments so far have not emphasized that.” Replace the period with a semicolon to join the two sentences, then put a comma before the “and” to separate the two independent clauses.

    “First, it’s a song from the civil war era and made sense to include in a clip of Gettysburg pictures. Second, I remember going to church and hearing the choir sing the song. I’ve always loved the song and its melody.” Do not use contractions unless necessary in dialogue.

    “Regardless I had a lot of fun creating it.” Put a comma after “Regardless.”

    Did you just load the video into WordPress? I ask because it took FOREVER to load. If you simply embed from YouTube it will be lightyears faster.

    Where are your links? I was hoping to be able to navigate to some along-the-way posts or maybe a tutorial, but there were no links for me to click on.

    I enjoyed your slide-show though. My wife and I have not been there together yet, but since we like other historic places like Williamsburg and Stone Mountain, we may go there in the future.
