When I saw the Character Description Assignment (3 stars), I knew I wanted to do it because I wanted to work with my favorite character from my favorite movie, Susan Cooper from Spy!! Last week, I did my Video Essay for a scene from Spy, but this week, I got to create a video dedicated to introducing people to my favorite character from Spy, Susan Cooper!!
To create this video, I used the clip I downloaded for my Video Essay, and I downloaded clips on YouTube for Scenes 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6 in the video using the 4K Video Downloader tool. I uploaded the clips to iMovie one by one and edited them to get the one or two parts I wanted from each clip for the video.
In this video, I wanted to show Susan Cooper’s progression as a character from a timid computer agent to her attempts to be a field agent, with very few people believing in her, to an incredible field agent and fighter. She has to constantly fight people’s expectations of her and believe in herself. We even get to see her give herself a pep talk while out in the field in the video! She becomes more confident and skilled as this video and the movie progress.
Once I liked the various scenes I cut together, and I liked how the video flowed, I added a title to the beginning scene and then credits at the end. I credited the YouTube accounts that I got the videos from, as well as naming myself as the director of this video. At the end, I went through to make sure the volume was consistent throughout and to make adjustments. Once I liked the video, I saved it as a file on my computer and uploaded it to YouTube!
