An amazing video week

This course has been unfolding precious mysteries for me. In the previous weeks I was able to organize my personal blog, learn photo editing and tell audio stories. This week has been more amazing for me. It was related to the video world. I was able to have a glance into how critics view movies. Believe me it is completely different than how we view it. They can see the use of different camera angles and their effectiveness. Even where a character comes from and where does he/she goes has a different meaning which I have tried to describe in some of my posts available bellow. I used Windows Movie Maker for the first time and it was great to know that some of the video effects like slowing a video down or fast forwarding can be done so easily. I faced an issue of using music clips that would not be taken down by YouTube when I upload it there. I found a great solution to this problem in the form of two amazing royalty free music website i.e. Free Music Archive and BenSound.

Following are the links to the different tasks I have completed.
