This week was really fun! I actually enjoyed doing the video work. Especially actually being about to watch movies and reading about the cinematic techniques. Anyways.. Let’s see how it went!
Radio Listen along and Tweet along
As always, it was a pleasure to be able to listen and tweet along to the radio shows this week. I thought both shows that I listened to were very well done!
My reflection went all the way back to the beginning of the show and being unsure about a group project for an online class to the success of our show, specifically our sound effects! Pay close attention to my advice to future ds106-ers!
For the video essay assignment, I watched “A Postman Always Rings Twice” and I elaborated on one of the scenes to show my knowledge and my now keen eye to cinematic techniques through Ebert’s writing and the videos that I got to watch this week! I liked being able to read the Ebert article and using the videos posted to actually be able to take a critical eye when watching the classical noir films. It definitely made me think about how the camera angles and the effects really aid to the overall meaning of the film.
