Last week I described my video project idea in my video show project plan post.
Then I created a poster and promo video and blogged about in my second video show project plan post.
After putting in all this work getting ready for the video, I started to brainstorm about what the video will look like, what audio and video elements I want to incorporate, and what applications to use.
I really liked the look of my promo video, but I don’t think the promo poster fits the “vibe” I am going for with my video. I am a pretty bubbly and upbeat person; this is what I want to portray in my video. Although I can show this by just being myself when recording, I want it to also be evident in the intro and outro.
I took to Canva to create a poster for my intro and outro. After completing my video essay, I realized I want more than just still slides used for transitions. While exploring the site I discovered I am able to make animated presentations! So I explored the different templates available to me. I found this really cool one that is super bright and has animated slime balls? It’s awesome and I decided to use it.
I don’t like using what’s already created for me and just changing the text. So, I made some changes of my own:
- Changed the background color to green
- Adjusted some of the slime to fit better on the screen
- Typed the title and subtitle
- Changed the color of the text to be cream for the title and purple for the subtitle
- Found a stock text that said “Thank you!” and moved it to the desired spot
- Changed the text in the intro to mirror that of the outro by adding an echo effect to the text
- Moved the Title/subtitle to allow space for a “signature”
- Found an animated girl watering flowers to signify me
- Added my tag to let everyone know who is making the video
