My spring clothing quarantine clean out

Kaylea Kuhlman, Editor in Chief

NORFOLK- To fill my extra time during this pandemic, I have begun to spring clean my room. I created a video to show my process going specifically through my clothes, both drawers and closet. I also showed the method I use for folding shirts and pants.

Overall I think the video turned out a lot better than I had expected it to given the circumstances of not being able to use the schools’ equipment and software that I had gotten used to.

I used iMovie to edit with, which I have used before so I had known how simple and easy it is. I will be getting Final Cut Pro in the near future so I am looking forward to using and becoming more familiar with it.

I utilized my personal photography camera as my video camera, which has its pros and cons. It, unfortunately, does not have a microphone plug-in, which ended up not being an issue for me this time around. However, it is extremely good quality and I like being able to focus in and out of objects easier.

For my voiceover, I used my own lavaliere microphone plugged into my phone through an adapter. I have liked using these paired together because the microphone is of higher quality and my phone is extremely portable and I really like that I can airdrop the voice note to my laptop and do not have to use cables or memory cards.

I also used my own tripod, which I think could be a little too weak for a bigger photography camera, but it gets the job done. It also usually takes me a second to remember how to have it properly set up to perform a pan shot.

For the intro and outro Viewpoint logo clips, I had screen recorded them from a previous video since I do not have the original copy with me.

Looking back at the video, it would have been better with a ring light or lightbox, but those were not available to me so I had used as much light as the camera allowed.
