Anyway, I got to know that the lesson was conducted by Dr Rosseni and it was on how to create and make interesting videos through some online applications like Powtoon. She even showed the class some videos made by our seniors. Apparently for this course, we have to film a video which include all required elements like audio, clips and more. She gave us the freedom to choose what topic we want to do. My group mates so far have not come up with what we want to do but we are still working on it.
Dr Rosseni mentioned about a few elements that must be take note when making videos. For example, the resolution of the video should be high so that it is clear and comfortable for the viewers. Other than that, she also mentioned about the message that we want to deliver through the videos. The message must be somehow educational to meet the purpose of the course. Besides that, the topic of the video must be interesting so that viewers will be interested to watch our videos.
She also emphasised on the distribution of tasks among group mates to make an informative and successful videos; one of us should be the director, another two members may in charge of the props needed; one or two cameramen plus some the actors and actresses. However, this does not mean that we only do what we are assigned. To make a video, it is important that each one of the members help each other and cooperate. Discussions are important so that everyone is able to voice out their opinions. The message of the video must be clearly conveyed through the video so that audience will receive and understand it. Other than that, duration of the video must not be too short as the message may not be conveyed clearly but not too long as the audience will be bored hence not paying attention to the video.Actors and actresses should be good enough to successfully deliver the message through voice projection, facial expressions and body language.
Looking forward to the next class!
