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.
