What lies behind what we don’t know

Throughout this experience, the steps James and I followed was a rather strange one, compared to many other groups. Firstly, ¬†what we did find pollution videos on youtube and download them if they are suitable for our movie. What we did next was take a film first and then make a script depending on what we liked and what we didn’t like. After that, we took another video for the movie, but then we made it too obvious we were reading off of a script, and therefore we had to film again. In fear of screwing up, however, we decided to make one of those old-fashioned movies where it’s black and white without sound, therefore covering up our script issues. However, sometimes the lips do not sync, which is why I fear that the audience may notice our mistake. However, I believe that James and I did our best, and that the audience should accept nothing more or less than the developer’s full effort. What I learned was that it is PAINFUL to make a movie, since me and James devoted hours of our time just trying to find the right amount of time for the subtitles we included so that the audience could eventually read everything without the need to read faster than they are comfortably with. In addition to that, the videos had to be longer if we made the subtitles longer, and that forced us to change the speed of the music in our video, which lead to even more problems, since I only know how to change the music and its pitch along with the speed, and we wanted to keep the pitch the same, which forced me to spend time listening to the whole thing, listening for anything that sounds remotely wrong. Eventually, James and I finished this and learned not to be movie directors.
