The final project I had in mind for the ART 325 course would revolve around video mashups. The reason behind my idea is due to my previous experience with it. Although I have never heard of terminology like this, let alone used it, I immediately became an expert with this. Through my perception, video mashups are enjoyable. I liked how simplistic the technique was, to copy-paste existing YouTube links, and have music overlay randomized videos. However, I am not certain of what the video mashup topic should relate to. What I mean is, should I select a video/song combination that relates to social/economic/political affairs.
Video mashup documentation should not be too arduous. But at the same time, I need to be thoughtful about which subject. Perhaps, because politics is the highlight of worldwide issues, I could choose that. For a video, I would use a clip of President Donald Trump communicating with the public about his plan of building an immigrant-free barrier. For a song, I am not precise on what it should be, but I will search for one that describes how corrupt Trump is. To create such a mashup, I first need to use an existing website to do this. The only website I know of is crossfade.io. With technology becoming more advanced, creating projects such as video mashups is not a difficult task. Computers are the powerhouses of the universe. Although they do have their letdowns, they help connect the universe through means of interactions from one’s home and beyond.
