Media. Media. Media. It’s a word that we all can’t escape from. We’re surrounded by it and its many forms.. and I LOVE IT.
The internet has provided us with a fantastic open and free platform in which we can create, publish and distribute our work for the whole world to see! It’s now as easy as ever to publish our work, may it be a musical piece, a video, an image or even just post our random mumblings about our opinions on certain things. I’ve been around on the internet for a while now (many years in fact), but i’ve never actually created anything for public consumption.
I’m an avid gamer, and any spare time that I have is more than likely spend playing some of my favourite online games such as All Points Bulletin: Reloaded or EVE Online. Recently I decided that I wanted to try and create a mash up video for the group of people that I play eve online with. The concept was simple. I wanted to promote my group by means of mashing up pre existing footage taken from the various CCP Videos advertising the game and adding various text overlays and video transitions along to some background music. This is something that I am currently working on (Test video can be found at the bottom of the post), and hope to release soon! As a web developer I spend most of my time outside of Uni checking out the wonderful things I can do with my code, however I was recently inspired to create this video after watching various other people’s attempts on youtube.
Maybe this is the start of something different for me? Doesn’t hurt to have a go at least now does it? I’ll be sure to post my finished version to my blog and various other places!
