My final project for this class will be a live motion video of one of my best friends, that I have known since kindergarten, demonstrating his amazing juggling talent. Coming into this project I had no prior use of any editing software other than photoshop, and I wanted to show that with a little inspiration anyone could illustrate the beauty of motion.
The beginning frame of my video starts with a visual blur of the juggler for multiple second, then unblurs showing clearly who the juggler is and what he is doing. I wanted to add my beginning frame like this to addmystery and really draw the viewer in.
My second frame will be from a wide angle point of view showcasing a large background, I am doing this to compare how small the balls are to the rest of the area around, continuing with the scene the juggler will throw the ball out of the frame, hopefully causing tension among the viewer and then the ball will then come back into frame all while in slow motion, this is to really showcase the motion of each and every movement that the juggler makes to catch the ball and the movement the balls make getting from point A to point B.
The third frame will be of the juggler in a tree juggling the balls however the way I take the video, I will be able to create a reverse effect making the ball actually go backward while everything else is going forwards, I want to do this to showcase that not everything is always as it seems and with good editing, you can alter motion.
The final frame will be of the juggler juggling all the balls in the air and then hitting them all down, this is just to signify the ending of the video and add a little humor to it as well.
My main inspiration for this video was the first project we did in this class when we had to draw motion around us, I took that idea with the fact that I have no prior experience with making video, to show to audiences that anything is if you truly want to learn how to do it.
