NARR: FINAL PROJECT (Video)

My videos for Narrative this semester have revolved around the idea of the subconscious affecting our behavior. My two main ideas for my final video are below. Top 2: A comparison between the left/right sides of the brain and the use of type/image to correspond. Bottom 2: A screen recording of myself making connections between words, while various clips move in the background to see if any of my connections can be related to them.

The final ended up going with the idea on the right. Here are some stills from the completed video. Before this project I would not have EVER tried making videos or even opening the Premiere program. Definitely pushed me outside my comfort zone.

NARR: FINAL PROJECT (Lexicon)

Lexicon: the vocabulary of a person, language, or branch of knowledge.

The topic I was exploring for my lexicon was how the subconscious mind affects behavior. For the final format, I chose two seemingly-distant terms, one from the subconscious and one from behavior, and compared how these words were related.

Neuroscience: the scientific study of the nervous system.
Urbanization: the population shift from rural to urban areas, and the ways in which each society adapts to the change.

I was able to make a lot of connections (…pun intended) between the ways neurons are connected and send messages with the ways humans are connected through their communities and living environments.

Also sorry these pics are trash I actually live in a dark cave.

Research: Forms (2)

This online quiz was created to inform the reader about what their subconscious is trying to tell them. Not sure if a website is the appropriate form, but gets me thinking more about interactive digital forms. Researching more into data collection and decision making.

Narrative: Solar Eclipse (2)

My solar eclipse narrative evolved into a stop-motion video. After reflecting on my eclipse experience, the most memorable part was realizing how many people it affected. For a mere 43 seconds, our differences were put aside as we all came together to witness this historical event. I wanted this feeling to be portrayed in my video, and I think it was a success.
