I finally finished the senior retreat video.
It feels really good to have finished a video this semester. I was beginning to be a little scared and anxious that I was not going to have any material finished by the end of the year. I feel like I can breathe a little easier now and stress a little less.
I wanted the video to have a home movie feel. So the aspect ratio is different, I added film grain, and some other effects to make the video look “bad” in quality. Originally, I had some trouble deciding how I was going to compile the footage, I soon came to the idea of an old home video. While I was looking back through the footage I was starting to have an almost nostalgic feeling, even though the retreat happened a couple of weeks ago. I thought nostalgia and VHS home video go hand in hand. The trip felt like more than just a class retreat; we all bonded like a family so I thought the idea of a family home video was fitting.
