Serena Changing

A Changing Character: For this assignment you need to pick any chacter and follow thier progression that they have had (TV characters from a long standing TV show will probably be best). Use video clips to show how the character has changed and grown up over time. Try to make their progression seem as dramatic as you possibly can. (4.5 stars).

For this assignment, we needed to create a mash-up video of a character. I chose the show, Gossip Girl, which is my absolute favorite show. I chose my favorite character as well, Serena Van der Woodsen, (played by Blake Lively) to show this character progression over the show’s period.

I used iMovie, which is so great! I found many show clips on YouTube and used Fltvo.com to easily convert my video and add it to iMovie. I inserted a title page which is on the left hand side under “Content Library”. I also used Transitions which is located here as well.

Here are my clips I found on YouTube:

This was simple to create, and I really enjoyed going back and seeing different clips of her character, who really does change throughout the show. Her fashion sense, her personality, and her love life changes many times and it’s so cool to see. I loved her character and always thought it would be cool to make something like this mash-up to view how she changes.

This mash-up assignment showed me how this could be an awesome progression of anyone, not just a TV show or movie character. These mash-ups are great evidence of anyone’s progression that can be documented for special events like graduation, birthdays, and holidays. This really is a great memory capturing piece of work.
