My blog is created to share with you all kinds of visual impressions connected with living in Oslo. Some of us have never been in Norway before, so I believe that there are a lot of interesting subjects to discuss. Enjoy it!
During last 3 days we learnt how to prepare movies (digital stories and triggers).
When you want to create interesting story (for you and for everybody else) you have to be creative and use your imagination. You have to decide which kind of photos are the most interesting (you don’t have to show everything). Story should be clearly and easy to understand, without redundant and unnecessary information (you should think about describes, kind of font, colouring, visual information). Story should be short (not longer than 3 minutes). Also track and sound have a paramount meaning (sounds giving a new meaning, emphasize video’s character).
Firstly,I think we should have a plan before we record it.The plan will save our time and the plan can decide the quality of the movie.
When we record it we should care about something.
Secondly,we should edit it to make some effects ,I think editing is important too.
During producing digital stories I have learned new program Photo Story 3 and improved my skills in working with such kind of programs.
Trigger was absolutely new word for me. I had never filmed before, so it was very useful experience.
In my opinion, perhaps the most important thing is team-work. Maybe, in team-work there are some different views of some
things from different people, while the problem can be solved at last. Centrally, all the team members reach an agreement
about their project. That is the ture team-work.
And through this task I get the ture meaning of team-work.
And I have learned some tools which are used to create digital stories. I think they are simple and the most are they are
very useful. I think if we master well about them. We will make higher quality products.
There is many different way to show some problems to somebody. You can write it, you can say it, you can also show some pictures or presentations…but…you can be much more creative and make a short movie calls digital story or trigger. Digital story is movie from pictures, I call that “mobile pictures” and trigger is short movie. Both talk about some issue, the topic chosen by you. It is much more effective and very attractive, can be also funny. But first of all is very educational. Teach resolve the problem of creative and custom thinking. Look at the problem from the other side and show it to the other, the same people involved with the topic and willing to take the discussion.
We have learned to producing both digital stories and triggers inthese three days.We work in pairs or a-four-people team,participators in my team comes from Poland,Niplo and China.It took us a lot of time,the project seemed todo not very good,but we have real feeling and experiment of producing digital story in team.The most important that I have learned are ideas how to choose a nice topic of digital story,and how to choose content.Digital story should have a particular topic fitting for short vedio.The topic maybe about one’s trip in paticular place,one’s most interseting impression of some kind of things,etc.It is some particular kind of things that is related with one place ,one field,one impression or one feeling.It just like the mian ideas of one article should be center, interesting and knowledge.Then digital story should organise important details of different factors around the topic.For example,the topic of “Houses in Folkmuseum” maybe select differnt houses in the museum, it just like explain the key concept by important features of different directions.
At first, the topic is very important, and it can decide the movie is sucess or failure, and the design is also improtant.
If you have a perfect plan of how to record it ,you may do better.
Secondly, a good communication during everyone in the group is necessary. Many different views maybe lead to some dispute, and also lead to many good ideas. But we must can deal with the difference points and combine them perfect.
And finally I want to say,these software are very good,and i have never head of them , it can be used easy and can make good expression or good video.
Yes we learned both on how to produce digital stories and triggers,
in digital stories we knew that the most important before presenting the story you must know the Zone of Proximal Development, this means that you must Feel the feeling of the Audience and trying to think their thoughts,
then after knowing their feeling you can use the language of Images so as to take their attentions, here you must use photograph,video and simple animations.
About triggers I knew that the first important thing during making videos is that you should make sure that, you control the light and sound,because what you will hear and see is what you are going to get on the Video.
second thing is to be carefully on edditing inorder to get an attractive video.
third you must put transitions between each movie and another, you can lastly import some musics on the videos.
