Above is our final PBA on video art.
As our final project for this class, we are doing a project based assessment (PBA). A PBA can count towards CTE Honors when I graduate. The PBA is kind of a way to show off what I have learned throughout my years in digital media. It's goal is to showcase the skills and knowledge that have been gained. For our PBA project, we decided to do video art. Before starting the actual video, we had to write a research paper about video art. You can click here to read my essay. We then conducted an oral presentation discussing our research in our essay and describing our actual project. I actually came up with this idea, and I wanted to do this because I thought the concept is really cool and I'm into the abstract side of video. Since the video is so abstract, it allows the viewer to have their own interpretation on the message. But our real reason for making this video is to show how the colors of the world inspire imagination. Our message was inspired by a quote by Henry David Thoreau, "The world is but a canvas to the imagination."

The most challenging part of the PBA was the editing process. We had all the footage we needed, but putting it all together and making the video sync with the music was difficult. We needed to figure out exactly how we wanted to pace the video. At certain points, we had some clips going way too fast and some that were too long. We were especially challenged when it came to figuring out the beginning and the end. It was hard to have the video flow because all the shots were so different, but we tried to make a pattern between seeing parts of color and nature. In our critique, it looks like people liked how our video turned out. They liked our visuals the best, most specifically the parts with colored paint.
