Video Media Final
Throughout school I’ve asked the same question many times, “When am I ever going to use this in my life.” This question usually pertains to math or science, because I’m never going to have to use the Pythagorean theorem to figure out how much to tip a waiter,(there’s a calculator on my phone,) and there’s no way I’m smart enough to be any sort of scientist. Even though most things I’ve learned in school won’t matter in a few years, I feel that I’ve learned very valuable skilled in the Video Media Productions class.
The first valuable skill I learned was how to video edit and how to add audio to make mini movies and commercials. In today’s world, technology is vastly used to advertise products being sold and to entertain people all over the world. By learning how to edit videos, there’s many things I could do when I go into the work force. I could start designing my own products and make commercials for them using the skills I’ve learned. I could start making entertaining videos and posting them on the internet. I could make videos on awareness of a topic that I feel needs attention. The amount of things I could do just from learning how to video edit is almost endless. Especially right now, with technology being how many people are reached throughout the world.
Another valuable skill I learned was how to use Photoshop. Like I said in the last paragraph, many people are reached through technology and advertisements. By knowing how to Photoshop, I could design billboards or flyers for a company trying to promote their product. I could also design sports teams’ logos or a company’s custom logos. I could design book cover for authors, make poster of famous people that kids hang in their room. The amount of knowledge I’ve gained using Photoshop and the wide use it was in today’s world could really help me when I decide what career I want to pursue on the future.
The last skill I’m going to mention, and it’s as vital as the two before, is working in a group. I’m going to work in groups my whole life, so to have already been exposed to it, and learning how to do it will benefit me, when I have occupations that involve group work. Several jobs, well, almost every job requires some type of group work on some portion of the project. If you “can’t” work with other people, the likeliness of the project being subpar is high because few ideas are being shared and listened to and eventually no one will want to work on the project. Being able to work in groups can help you do things more precisely than if you’re working by yourself. Being able to work adequately with a team or a group of people is an easy skill to obtain. If you learn how to do it, it will help you with future tasks.
Overall, being in Video Media Productions was a great experience where I learned several valuable skills that I will one day use. I would recommend this class to anyone who has an interest in technology, broadcasting, commercials, or video creating. Video Media production was a useful class and helpful class. I learned a lot from it that will benefit me as I move through life.
