In the Video, Jane's story, she talks about her life, her son, and her diagnostic of HIV. In the video she begins her video with music and begins to narrate her own story, at least we the audience believe so. She does a good job narrating and keeping pace with the images in the video which helps the audience connect what she is saying with the images. She keeps a steady tone throughout the video, however if she was to have put some power or other emotions into her voice it would have made the video have more energy. However, the transitioning of the images were done pretty well, it gave the audience enough time to think. The pictures were a mix of black/white and color without any blur. The different pictures helped the audience with a sense of the different times that events or things occurred. She used images such as a photo that was all black with a person wearing a mask with only their eyes showing. The image symbolized herself in the dark and alone. The music played helped set the mood for the video and story being told. Music was played throughout the whole video which helped lead the audience. However, the video could have had sound affects. The sound affects installed into the video could have given the video a deeper feel of an actual movie being played and deeper feelings and perhaps meaning. Jane did a great job narrating her story and transitioning from one point of her life to the next. Adding sound affects and other various things would have improved her video but besides everything else it was great.
