In Summer’10, I was assigned an elective module- MUS266. Everyone had to come up with an individual presentation to share with the class, and we could present on anything and everything- as long as it was related to music.
Truth be told, given the free reign we had over what to present, I had no idea what to present on. Or rather, I was clueless with regards to HOW I was going to present my presentation. I didn’t want slides; that was too, in my humble opinion, perfunctory and uninteresting. I could exhibit a musical talent, but I had (sadly) none to speak of. What was I to do then?
Then I thought, Ah!
I could create my own video to share with the class!
And so I embarked on my video-making journey with Windows Movie Maker. I must admit though, it was a lot harder than I had thought it would be. Although I had a simple concept in mind, it was pretty tough for me to execute it. I ran into a couple of technical errors and compatibility issues; I was very lucky to have a friend to guide me along. 🙂
Through that experience, I have learnt to better appreciate every video I watch. It may be really easy for viewers like me to simply click on a video and enjoy its content, but it surely isn’t as easy to create it.
For now.. do check out the fruits of my (really hard) labor! 🙂
