    1.What time element did you use in your video? Why?
    We sped up the video to make it seem like the protagonist had superpowers.
    2.Name a different time method you could have used.
    Slowing down footage.
    3.What was the most difficult part of shooting the Space element?
    Coming up with a good method that helped the quality of the video.
    4.Name a different Space element you could have used.
    We could have made it seem like we were talking to someone off screen when they weren’t really there, then going back later to shoot more footage of the person they were having their conversation with and edit it all so it flows smoothly.
    5.What was the most challenging part of the editing phase?
    Finding the right music and sound effects.
    6.List three things that you could have done to make the video flow better?
    Picked out better music, sound effects and planned ahead even more elaborately than we already did.
    7.What was your favorite video (it doesn’t have to be your own)? Why?
    I think ours was pretty good, it was creative and a lot of work was put into it.
    8.What did you learn from other videos that you can use in your next project?
    More techniques for camera angles and music usage.

  6. 1 What time element did you use in your video? Why?
    We used two time elements. During one scene we slowed down a portion of the video clip to add effect to that scene, drawing it out and portraying it as important. The second was when we cut from scenes of one character walking up the stairs, texting, to another character in another room, receiving and responding to his texts.
    2 Name a different time method you could have used.
    We could have shown the murders first to capture our audiences attention and then used flashbacks to show why the murders took place.
    3 What was the most difficult part of shooting the Space element?
    We didn’t really have a specific space element going into the filming, so I don’t think there really was any difficulties, other than the natural lack of cooperation within our groups.
    4 Name a different Space element you could have used.
    I honestly am not completely sure what space elements entitle, so I don’t know.
    5 What was the most challenging part of the editing phase?
    Finding and placing music that fit the scenes, and portrayed the desired emotion.
    6 List three things that you could have done to make the video flow better?
    1) Used better transitions between clips and songs
    2) develop the story line more thoroughly
    3) Edit the clips to flow, remove overlap
    7 What was your favorite video (it doesn’t have to be your own)? Why?
    I liked the one with the vigilante school. I thought it was done well, and i also liked the flashback.
    8 What did you learn from other videos that you can use in your next project?
    We can use flashbacks, and flash-forwards to help gain the mood and suspense of the audience.

    1. One of the time elements that we used in our video was speeding up Joseph’s running because he had super speed.
    2. Another time element we could have used was slowing down other people then show Joseph sped up to create more illusions of his super speed.
    3. The most difficult part of shooting the space element was having our actors be placed accurately enough on screen to where it would create the illusion that they walked out of somewhere that they really didn’t (without the audience knowing that, of course).
    4. We could have pointed in another direction of where someone was coming, but it wasn’t that direction at all outside of the film (i.e. “They’re coming from the west!” When in reality the actor may have been pointing to the south).
    5. The most challenging part of the editing phase was lining up myself “flying backwards” in front of the “wall”- or green screen, in this case.
    6. We probably could have cut some time off of the clips presenting Joseph’s super powers, because I feel the narration wasn’t long enough to accompany the pacing.
    7. My favorite video was our own, because we worked hard on it like always for something that we could be proud of.
    8. I learned that music really helps set the mood, especially in films without dialogue.

  15. 1. We used flash forward to go along with the scene we used.
    2. Flash forward
    3. Deciding weather we were using the space or time element.
    4. We could have used framing of location.
    5. Back to back conversations.
    6. Planned out better and more organized.
    7. Ours because without seeing the video written out you know what’s going on in the video.
    8. A better solid story.

    1. We used flash forward so we could give the effect that our hero was running fast. 2. Flash back.3. The most difficult part was trying to to figure out how it would build the story.4. We could have pointed to someone but they would be in a different room.5.The hardest part was getting the volume and lighting just right.6. (1) we could have used better background music(2) we could have used better transitions(3) we could have made it a bit louder. 7. Ours because it had the best story and it flowed very well. 8. Lightning is very important for the aesthetics of your video.

    1. We sped up the video to make it seem like the our character had super speed.
    2. Stretching the footage so that way he looked like he was moving slower.
    3. Shooting the to places with no one around so we could get better sound quality.
    4. Another space element we could have used would be shooting someone talking alone but later putting in a different person so that way it seemed the first person was talking to someone.
    5. The hardest part of the editing phase was finding the right music to went with the video or figuring out the transitions with the characters powers.
    6. We could have had the transitions be more snappy, we could have stayed more on the character when he found out he had super power, and we could have taken out dead time in the start.
    7. I like our video the most because it was very creative and was well made.
    8. I learned the our story has to made sure to be appropriate before we start making it.

  18. 1. Our time element was a flashback
    2. We could done the opposite and done a fast forward
    3. We were trying to give the illusion of a full classroom but we weren’t entirely sure how to manipulate it
    4. I don’t remember the different types of space elements but we could’ve given a different illusion
    5. Doing the discussion between the teacher and student
    6. Not so stagnet, more camera angles, more time on editing, maybe some more music
    7. I liked ours and I think we did good editing wise
    8. To use more effects and camera angles

  19. The time element our group chose to incorporate in our video was filming Sam walking up the steps multiple times. After each time we showed Sam walking up the steps, we would cut to a video of Emmy laughing at the text Sam just sent. This gave the effect that the two events were happening at the same time.

    We could have used a flashback or flash-forward but decided that the stairs option was more fitting for the plot of our story.

    The most difficult about filming the Space element was most likely coming up with a space element to use. It wasn’t an issue of deciding between multiple ideas, but merely making one up.

    An easier Space element we could’ve used was simply pointing down the hallway and implying someone was coming toward them. Instead we used a clip of Jesse walking down a hallway and cutting to a clip of Jesse walking into the media center doors. This implied that the hallway Jesse was walking down led to the media center, although it did not.

    Our video in particular was quite difficult to edit due to the fact that it was a silent film and we had to add all the music and sound to the video ourselves.

    We could’ve added more sound effects and used a wider variety of transition pieces. Either of these techniques would have improved the amount of flow the video had. The last thing we could’ve done (and still need to work on thoroughly) is cutting the footage down a lot. We need to improve the quality of the video by cutting down the time. We plan on doing so by shortening the clips an obvious amount.

    My favorite video had to be “The Microwavable Man”. This group in particular did a fantastic job of execution and editing in their video. It was easy to follow, understand, and appreciate completely.

    Once again, I learned that longer is not always better. The only issue is finding a way to apply that knowledge to our next video.

    We walked up and down the stairs for our time element. It made it looked longer than it actually was, which gave it a nice effect.

    We could have filmed different hallways to make it looked like one hall.

    I would say the difficult part was having to film in many different places and angles to get the full feel.

    Someone pointing at someone else and yelling to put the attention on something other than what it was on before.

    I would say cropping the video to the right times.

    I could have used different transitions, more sound effects and less footage.

    Probably the Romeo and Juliet video that my group did.

    We should have used less footage.
