Final Project - Autobiography

Final Project

au·to·bi·og·ra·phy (self portrait)   

[aw-tuh-bahy-og-ruh-fee, -bee-, aw-toh-] Show IPA
-noun, plural -phies.
a history of a person's life written or told by that person.

Create a video autobiography for yourself. The project should be 3-5 minutes. You may make a traditional narrative starting from birth to present day, or you may focus on one aspect of your life that you are extremely interested in and want to present as an historical reference. The autobiography does not have to be traditionally narrative; it can also be experimental in nature. For this assignment you may not use pre-recorded music or sound. Think carefully about how the sound relates to you and your personal history.

Things to avoid -

recreating an image slideshow that might resemble a facebook photo album

using any pre-recorded music that might make your video appear to be a music video

Any of the artists we have seen up until this point are good reference points to take from. You may use any of their formal film, video, animation, image, performance, and storytelling techniques to narrate your personal history.

This project will be due, uploaded to mediamill and shared with me, BEFORE CLASS on Thursday, May, 5th. Any videos that are incomplete or late will not be accepted.
