UNIT 7: Video edits

For the above video, I tested keeping the laugh in after saying 'lesbian', to show that even though people know the stereotypes may be ridiculou, that it is still an honest account of the first thing people think of when they think of feminism, due to how feminism has been portrayed over recent years. After considering tough, I feel like the laugh isn't inkeeping with the rest of the video, and makes it look a little disjointed, so I will be editing it out.

I prefer the vesion below, with it edited out.

Here I have been contemplating keeping my brothers 2 sections in, "cause im happy the way it is", because I think it is a really good opinion to view, as it must be the view of manyboys, as they see no personal benefits for being a feminist themselves, however, I don't like the inconsistency of having 2 answers by my brother, and others only one. I want to keep the answers coming in quick and fast, so will use the below version.

Below I tried the person saying if there were a feminist or not, right next to their answer as to why, but I feel like it focuses too long on one person, and gets a little tedious. So next I am going to try chopping up the "no"s so that they come fast after one another, cause I feel that will be a better impact to start my video, showing all the people who say they are not feminists.

Details

Below I have completed the chopping up of the 'no's and kept it snappy, and shown a complete version of how it would look. I feel that I like the fact they are all youths, however, I don't think I have interviewed enough young people to make it a great impact, I need a greater number of youths saying no, or saying they are confused for it to mean anything, so I may need to try mixing in the other people I have interviewed, so usign a wider age range.

I really like the above version, and think this is exactly what I would love to exhibit, but I really hate the sections with the camera at the wrong way round, or the photo frame coming into view instead of a blank wall. I feel it makes it look really unprofessional and ruins it all, and so I feel like now I need to test using some different video footage on top of the interviews as audio.

Above I tried to keep the music of the found footage under my audio, but I really dislike it. It feels quite irrelevant, mismatched, and confusing to hear both audios, I feel like I need to let the audience focus on my own audio alone, as thats the main focus, and maybe a silent version of the footage. This will retain interest in what the interviews are saying and will be less distracting.

Details

I felt like the video was a little too slow paced, so I I sped it up, to try and emmulate how fast women have to work in the home, and how many jobs they do in a day. The video of housewives is supposed to represent how womens roles used to be, and show how feminism has changed it for the better. This contrasts with these modern people saying they aren't feminists, and that they don't know what it means, and shows the lack of respect we now have for a movement which changed so many lives.

Details

The above and below videos have been sped up more and more, to create the fast pace for the reasons mentioned before, showing the woman doing so many jobs in such little time, and I think the below video is definitely more visually pleaing, however, I am havign second thoughts about how now it looks like I’ve tried to make a professional video, not just showing a collection of interviews, and a classmate said i should do more clips, and clips that are relevant to what people are saying. This is becoming a proper video, and not just a mash up of the interviews, and if I had planned to do a full blown video I would have left more time for it, but I had decided on just doing interview clips. So perhaps I should revert back to the clips of the interviewers faces.
