For my video I wanted to go in a different direction than the audio assignment. I wanted to make the video about me and my twin cousins because we basically grew up as triplets.

To start I want to show my mom and her twin sister (aunt Kim) and Kim’s twin daughters (Alisha and Chanelle) all in the same shot while introducing them.  My mom and aunt are fraternal twins, while my cousins are identical, so it’s interesting to see them all together.

next I want to have Alisha tell a story she remembers well from when we were growing up and Chanelle tell a story as well.

We did gymnastics for so long together that I wanted to add in a clip of us tumbling together.  Alisha tore her ACL and can’t participate in that shot so it will just be two of us.

Alisha’s story is about a turtle we dropped down a laundry shoot when we were 3 years old to see if it could fly, spoiler alert, it didn’t… So I want to reenact that scene with a stuffed animal turtle to add a little humor to the sad story.

I’m not exactly sure how I want to end it, but I’m thinking about doing a little photo montage with music showing us growing up?

Final Cut Audio Project

For this project, I interviewed my grandma and grandpa, my parents, my older sister Shamara (her newborn daughter Abagail also puts a word in), my older brother Kyle, my younger sister Brenna and my boyfriend.  (Oh my dog “speaks” on command so I had to put his input in there too!) I figured they are the ones that have known me longest and have to most detailed interesting stories about me.  I asked each of them to describe me in three words and to tell a story they remember best about me, or a memory they have with me.  As for the three describing words, I decided to mix and mash them all together to get a different, hopefully more intriguing, effect.  I put two of the same word from different people back to back to kind of show that that particular word was a popular one that best describes me.  The story about me throwing temper tantrums for no apparent reason was a popular story and told by almost every one, but I decided to only put it in once.  My mom had a TON of stories and was way too eager to tell them ALL! I had to cut her off 😉 To conclude it I added in one of my favorite songs at the end and faded it in and out.
