Failures and Successes

Failure Project Ideas:

  • audio manipulation
  • video montage: I had a difficult time creating a pattern of some sort with the footage
  • using Photoshop to make a stop motion video

Success Project Ideas:

  • creative stop motion video with photos: I would want to do it with paint or drawing materials
  • technical drawing: I could make a video diary of drawings I make everyday
  • create a much more in depth set of directions for a project that people could do.
