So I decided to do this “day in the life of” assignment because, while although my life is tragically boring, I liked the concept.
WARNING Political commentary will follow in this video as I rant and rave about politics and history OFTEN during the week, and I’m also a bit of a reactionary monarchist on the political spectrum so you may be offended. I really don’t care, but just in case you lean so far left that driving on the right side of the road is antithetical to your credo, you have been warned.
This example (which may or may not work for you, I got it to work once to watch it but had trouble getting it to load again consistently) was okay, I’m not a fan of speeding clips up because it looks odd but that’s just my taste. I was impressed by its short length, I felt like I saw a complete day despite the brevity of the clip.
I was only able to get one of the examples to work, therefore only one will be commented on. It looks like the rest of the links go to parked pages.
here is my video:
I decided to go the humor angle here and inserted in clips and stills that capture the essence of my day to day life if not the exact substance. While this probably falls outside the purview of the original assignment, I cannot take footage or still images from my workplace without violating tons of privacy laws and risk losing my job so, sorry DS106, not worth sticking my neck out for. The camera is a little shaky at times, although I feel this contributes to the authenticity of the clip, and I had to flip a few clips (IDK why my video never seems to end up at the right angle). I threw in the fuzzy edge detection effect at the start because I feel fuzzy and weird (and apparently devilish with red eyes) first thing in the morning on a workday. Turns out my warning wasn’t all that justified! Friday was an apolitical day for me.
The clip at the end comes from a Soviet propaganda reel showing an artillery unit in action, I like it because it fits the spirit of my wargaming hobby I spent all night enjoying
