For my final assignment of the week, I decided to do something a little more complicated.
After a lot of browsing, I found the Two Movies, One Line assignment and thought it was pretty clever. The objective of this assignments is to choose one line from two movies and combine them to either make one new line or make one line be a response to another.
Keeping with the 80’s pop culture theme, I decided to choose from movies that were popular in the 80’s. I have seen a decent amount of movies from the 1980’s, but I have not watched them enough to quote the lines off of the top of my head. So, I did what most people would do and Googled some popular movie lines.
When I saw the “They’re here” line from Poltergeist, I knew I had to mix it with the iconic Shining scene (I’m a huge Stephen King fan), which also ties into this week’s title, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
To make my video, I used some online software to download the two scenes that I needed. Then, using some basic video editing software that was already downloaded on my computer, I was able to crop the videos and have them play one right after the other to ultimately make one video. It was pretty easy to do.
I decided to try to blend the words together instead of them just playing back to back to give myself more of a challenge.
It’s not perfect, but it is my first time doing any video editing like this. I think it turned out to be decent. Check it out!
