My Visual Poem


   
My visual poem was okay... But I know it could have been better! I am happy that I came out with a finished product, but its not the best it could have been.

This actually was the first project I did in this class by myself that required editing. So I took this as an opportunity to practice my  editing skills in final cut pro.  And it wasn't a total disaster like I it would be... Yah I doubt myself a lot. But it in the end I am not satisfied with my Final result, because I expect more out of myself than what I put down on this project.

I barely used any special affects because I just trying to organize my poem. By the time I did that it was already due and I was late. So the only things I really used was text lay overs and transitions. And I was aiming for a simply and calming feel.

I actually am. I feel that I did my best given the time we had and that this was the first time I actually used final cut pro by myself. But I know my self well enough to now that I could have done WAY better.

  1. I like how your visual poem flowed really well.
    Maybe next time maybe stabilize the shaky video clips.
    Great job though!!

  2. I liked the topic, it was different but very interesting.
    It was a bit long, and some shaky B-role
    The B-role matched very well

  3. Your poem was pretty good, I liked your audio too.
    The audio was a little loud.
    Good B-Roll.

  4. Great sequencing. The was a pretty large amount of camera movement. Over all great b-roll with great emotion.

  5. I really liked how you voiceover was very clear and understandable.
    I think you repeated a line of your poem.
    I also liked how you added background music, it really makes your poem more meaningful.

  6. Your poem had truth and depth to it
    Your music got louder near the middle of your poem and then I couldn't hear you very well.
    I loved some of your B-Roll and effects. Most were pretty funny

  7. Good job filming relevant B-Roll, especially with adding in the text layovers. However, even though it was applicable, the whole section of B-Roll near the clip of someone punching a wall was a bit behind your audio.

  8. Thats awesome. the voice over was clear and the b-roll was relevent
    It was a bit dark at one point in the b-roll
    The music matched and the poem was awesome

  9. Nice message, and clear voice over. I think the audio increased suddenly at one point though, and you paused a lot when you were reading. Awesome text layovers too, they really added to your poem.

  10. Your voiceover was clear and well said. Some of your shots were too shaky. I liked the idea of your poem and your visuals.

  11. Hey, Wailana. Nice visual poem, I really liked how you used text. One thing you could change is to make your B-roll match timing with what you say. And one thing I liked was how you had many different people in your video.

  12. I like how you put your-self in your poem. Some of the shots went by really fast. Your music matched really well.

  13. I like youre topic really interesting. Some shots a little shakey. You had a really clear voice over.

  14. The music blended in with the poem nicely.
    A line of the poem repeated.
    Ending with, "Together we form the human race," was good.

  15. 1.) I really enjoyed watching your poem! I liked how your b-roll matched with what you were saying.
    2.) Towards the end, I think you said a line twice and also the audio increased.
    3.) All in all your poem had a great meaning and a variety of b-roll!

  16. Nice Lana! Love the music and the meaning of the poem.
    I think if you edited the timing of the b-roll with the narrator i would be GREAT!
    I also love your actresses... like me... Great job Wailana!

  17. I really liked all of your b-roll because it applied to your poem well. There was one point where there were shots flashing so I think that you could've slowed that down. I also liked how you spoke clearly and with expression.

  18. The music that you added gave your poem a very nice mood. I would have recommended getting more shots and clips outside of school and other places. You got a lot of good B-roll. Good job!

  19. Hayallo Wailana! Love your voice through out the video. I felt it had a lot of expression and it really matched your poem really well. One thing I noticed was that sometimes, your B-Roll didn't match with what you're saying. Like one point it was but then, it wasn't. However, your voice was incredibly clear and your text was very neat.

  20. The poem was written really well and the voice over was very clear. The B-roll seemed to be delayed from the voiceover, for example the part that said "some need help" the B-roll didn't show up for another second. The B-roll matched the video very well.

  21. Your poem was well written and you spoke clearly. Some of the visuals didn't match up with what was being said. But, the visuals were shot well and I liked how you used different people, not just one.

  22. The poem was well written, some of the video clips were kinda shaky, but overall good job!
