Have a Conversation with Yourself: Have a conversation with yourself! Film yourself talking, then change clothes, hair styles, etc and then film the other half of the convo. Edit this in any movie editor program (I used Pinnacle movie maker) To overlap the two scenes so that you are talking to yourself! Play around, to figure out the most efficient way! Also, timing is everything in this! Make sure when talking to leave breaks for your other self to respond! (5 stars).
For this assignment, we needed to talk to ourselves using video. This was interesting because you have to record yourself talking, and then change it up by talking back to yourself.
I first used Photo Booth, which is an application on my computer, to record myself easily (twice). I wrote a script for each “person” and said my part while trying to create space with pauses. I changed my hair and my clothes so we would look a little different!!
I then dragged both videos into iMovie. I clipped each part how I wanted them, and then dragged totem into my timeline. I switched each character so I would literally be talking to myself! I added a title page and a credit page to the timeline. I also changed up the video by making it black and white. I thought this added to the “talking to myself” feel of the assignment so it would look like we were in the same room conversing on a couch. I did this by clicking “Adjust” on the top. Then I clicked the color palette, and I dragged the second bar to the left where it was darker.
Here is a clip of my work. The timeline I am discussing is at the bottom:
When I read this assignment, I thought of girls gossiping to each other. I thought it would be funny to have myself gossip with myself. So, my script contains a gossip story about a girl I know named Charlotte. I continue to talk about her bad day, but in the end, both characters want to help her out.
I liked doing this assignment. It was a little different to watch back because once I finished editing the video, it actually ended up seeming like I was talking to myself.
