George and I found a lot of clues this week. This was a tough case but we solved it. We know that Professor Burtis is innocent until proven guilty but I don’t think she can defend herself against all the evidence we have accumulated.
Here is our video with all of our clues summarized.
This 5 star video assignment was to do a video essay. I picked “And then there were none” because Agatha Christie is Isabelle’s favorite writer and someone she aspires to be. I went through several scenes and marked what I thought was important to the watcher. The movie was good, but predictable. As soon as someone admits to their crime, you know their time has come to die. I used Movie Maker to create this video essay. I had a hard time getting all my captions to stay in the movie. I think it was just an example of save and save often. I believe this one has all my edits in it.
This is a 5 star assignment to create a Public Service Announcement. I used the emergency broadcast sounds that I downloaded from Freesound.org and I recorded the audio myself. I used a fellow character in DS106 (George Bozzo) a known mobster and wanted to warn everyone about him. I used Movie Maker to make this. I learned a lot because getting the sound where I wanted it was a little difficult at first.
This 5 star assignment was to put together a Montage of a person special to me. Isabelle’s favorite author is Agatha Christie so that is who I did the montage on. I used PowerPoint to put it together. I did research on Agatha Christie in order to make it work. Here is my video.
Here is my interview with the Agency. I don’ t like doing interviews but here it is. I used my tablet to record my my part and I used Movie Maker to put all the parts together. I enjoyed doing this. I answered 2 questions from every interviewer. I hope my answers help define who I am.
This is a 4 Star assignment that I just loved doing. It took me a long time because I’m not very good with video yet. I started with Powerpoint and put in pictures of my dog Dixie. Then I made a few video’s of her “fetching” and put them on Movie Maker so I could add titles. Then I found the perfect song and used
to convert the song to an MP3 so I could use it on my video. I added everything to PowerPoint and then had to “optimize the Video” so I could save it as a WMV. Then I posted it on YouTube. Here is my final video.
I learned an important lesson. PowerPoint cannot handle the size of all the videos. I ended up moving it all to Movie Maker and putting it together there and it ended up so much better.
I decided to “read” the movie Notorious. I enjoyed the film and reading it added an interesting side to it. I selected one of the beginning scenes when Bergman and Grant first meet. I had a hard time uploading this program but finally found a way to convert it from a YouTube video to a Movie Maker video so I could edit it. I added captions to the parts I “read”. I think I did a good job. I had to change the video to an MP4 in order to make it play on Youtube. Here is my final movie essay.
I picked this 4.5 star assignment and I did in on the character of George Bozo, he is Barbara Hall’s 1940’s character. I read everything I could about George and I made a PowerPoint and converted it to a WMV file so that I could post it on YouTube. I picked a song that I thought fit him. I like how it turned out.
