The conceptual project encapsulates my journey and achievements since joining Freestyle not too long ago. In this brief period, I’ve acquired proficiency in a wide range of software and devices to express my creativity. I’ve become adept at using DSLR Cameras, Tascam Audio Recorders, and a variety of Adobe software including Photoshop, Animate, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, as well as Avid Pro Tools and WordPress to convey my creative ideas. My first experimental film, created with my DSLR camera and audio recorder and edited using Adobe Premiere Pro, was a particularly gratifying endeavor, as it allowed me to explore filmmaking techniques and exercise artistic choices. In English, the freedom I had while crafting my free verse and photo haiku poem was invaluable. Moreover, in the digital media aspect, the acquisition of skills in using various software, notably Pro Tools and Adobe Photoshop for my poem mix and cover design, enabled me to make personalized creative decisions that truly reflected my vision in presenting my conceptual poem and taking creative risks.
We first started English class with a simple haiku. My prompt was “experiencing joy through new places.” I really wanted to put a little twist on the end of the haiku leaving the audience confused yet satisfied. After writing my haiku, I put up this very simple video to emphasize the emotions that I was trying to bring out with my photo.
I valued the experience that I had working with keyframes throughout this project. It was a really nice refresher on how to simply edit text and images.

Short introduction to the conceptual assignments that we did in Film.
Artfully feature your Experimental synopsis – text, photo, screenshot, video, animated gif – choose a format that you think would work best. Add some explanation text so that the viewer understands what you are presenting. Don’t leave it as a mystery content block.
For this assignment we were assigned 2 days to come up with an idea, film, edit, and present it. This was my film.
For this assignment, we were given 1 class period to go over as many film terms as we knew
For this assignment, we were told to create a short where there were multiple of ourselves on the screen at the same time. I used very simple cutting techniques, but I wanted to add a wist. I wanted one character to throw a phone and the other one catch it.
