Here is my short narrative video titled ‘The Wonders of Nature’ which I uploaded to YouTube. I am pleased with how the project went and was interested in experimenting with different shots that produced certain results.
I have been filming my Digital Narrative piece and uploading the content to Adobe Premiere Pro for editing purposes.
27 April 2016: I began filming, this took place in a home environment. The main character is sitting at a computer typing, eventually getting stressed out and reflecting on life.
30 April 2016: At Teddington Lock, I filmed some footage. This was of some Egyptian Geese and their chick to form some of the bird videos required.
1 May 2016: A trip to Bushy Park was next on the agenda. Managing to film in the Water Gardens as it is a very peaceful environment.
We learnt about hypertext narrative, according to freedictionary.com, it is defined as a narrative that utilises hyperlinks to other texts.
The word ‘Hypertext’ was coined by Ted Nelson (born 1937) who is an ‘American pioneer of Information technology, philosopher and sociologist’. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ted_Nelson)
We watched everybody’s digital narrative presentations, it was interesting hearing what people had analysed, with a majority of the class doing film.
My presentation was about The Shining, overall I feel content with how the presentation went even though there are nerves everytime I speak in front of people!
