The Most Chaotic Period of the History of France — The French Revolution

Some revolutions end purposefully, and some do not. What about the French Revolution? Do you know what the Reign of Terror was? What about King Louis and his deficit spending? The French revolution began with the rule of an unequal social system named the Ancién Regime. This video shows how France went through a series of events that brought the country from a period of absolute monarchy and chaos to freedom and equality. This video was created by Yvonne and Samuel. We worked on cutouts, scriptwriting, planning, filming, and finally editing. What this video conveys is our main idea: Whether or not the French Revolution was worth it. Throughout the unit, I learned about different perspectives people would think about the revolution. There are many ways people may decide to understand this revolution, and I would like to say that the French Revolution was worth it. Before the Revolution, France suffered from deficit spending, bankruptcy, hunger, and famines. After the revolution, people were treated with equality, and revolutionary ideas were spread.  I noticed how important the French Revolution was in shaping France into the country it now is. A revolution may not succeed, but it is always important.

  1. Yvonne, I enjoyed your common craft video so much. The soothing music and clearly pronounced words presented the French revolution in an easy and fun way to learn about. One thing I learned was how the French revolution started off with 3 states, the Clergy, nobility, and the Commoners. Great work!

  2. Yvonne, I really like how you explain the background of French and the social classes. I think it made it easier to understand the overall idea of the French Revolution. I also really liked the change in music, it was very suitable for the specific event! I really like the format you guys decided to use it was simple, but detailed and taught me more about the special events during the French Revolution 🙂

  3. This video is amazing, your cutouts and the scripit was very helpful. I am able to understand key points about this revolution

  4. Yvonne, I like how you guys used a very calm but a bit of pop in your background music and how you guys used some tense music to show the climax of the revolution. I also liked how you guys all had a very clear and loud voice. I learnt that the main conflict in the French Revolution was caused by the leader of the Jacobins, Robespierre.

  5. I liked your video it was very easy to understand. It helped me understand the French revolution more clearly, the music wasn’t too loud either.
