Video Daily Create-What I’ve Learned


Video #1- A narcissistic supercut

I knew that I wanted to do a supercut of something, but I didn’t know what of exactly.

So it maybe narcissistic but here is a Samantha Supercut:

Video Goals

My goals for the video portion of the class are to feel more comfortable using video editing software and to be able create something interesting.

I hope to be able to create something that can hold someones attention for 1-2 minutes.

Basically to feel like this kid:
