Steve Carell Funny Moments

Favorite Actor/Actress Highlight Reel (3 Stars)

Description of Video Assignment: “Create a 30 to 60 second highlight reel of your most enjoyable movie scenes from your favorite Actor/Actress.”

The Story

Steve Carell has always been one of my favorite actors. He plays the boss of my favorite TV show The Office. He plays the perfect role of how not to run an office or company. He plays the weatherman in Anchorman 1 and 2, which is also my favorite movie. He plays a role of a very dumb weatherman but the stuff he does is really funny. Like in Anchorman 2 they were having a funeral for him because they thought he got last at sea but he shows up to it and speaks at his own funeral crying how much he’s going to miss himself.

The Process, Narrated

To create this assignment I had to first download Clipgrab which allowed me to save videos off Youtube onto my computer. Once I saved all the videos I wanted to use I starting to trim the videos using Quicktime on my mac. I would trim the video and save it on my desktop. When I had all my trim clips I then used iMovie on my mac to put all the clips together into one video. I used powerpoint to create the beginning intro and uploaded it to the video in the intro section. iMovie made it easy to insert the video and introduction because it had a preset slot for everything.

Blake Griffin Highlights

Highlight Reels (5 Stars)

The Story

Blake Griffin is one of my favorite NBA players. He plays for the Los Angeles Clippers but I first became a fan of his when he was in college at Oklahoma University. He was such a great college player. His dunking ability was as good back then as it is now. I remember one game in college he jump so high while dunking it he hit his head against the backboard and got a black eye. But, all the highlights I chose to do of him are NBA highlights because I feel he’s dunking the same way as he always has now he’s doing it against better players.

The last thing I added to the video was the background music from my iTunes. iMovie made it easy to insert the video, introduction, and the music because it had a preset slot for everything.
