A Basketball Hype Video I Made for a Friend.
The coach of this team was the host to a bible study group I attended and when I mentioned that I was shooting videos for a college course he offered me the opportunity to shoot this hype video. Thanks brother. Anyway, Lets watch it shall we?
On a somewhat related note, but completely different focus …
I used to play basketball when I was a little kid; about the same age as some of these girls, but a little younger. However, I was not nearly as good as them. I was the kid who joined a team way more experienced than I was, but the coach let me in because my nephew was really good at basketball and we carpooled together anyway.
Long story short, it was the first time, not the last lol, that I was laughed at by an entire crowd during a live game. I had huge anxiety growing up so instead of blocking, or guarding my opponent, I chose to hide behind and pretend to block. I kind of ran around in circles and tried to pretend they werent laughing at my lack of skills. Needless to say, that was the last time I played as a kid.
When I was in middle school I ended playing everyday since it was the only fun thing to do while I waited for my parents to get off of work. I got pretty good and its the only sport game I truly enjoy playing for fun other than skateboarding. I don’t skateboard anymore though because I lost so much teeth from the falling and the speeding down hills.
Journalism Final Cut – The Wild Plum Holistic Spa & Yoga Center
Hey WordPress Family,
For my final project in Multimedia Storytelling I had to make a journalism style video. Alexandra Del Gaudio and Daniela Del Gaudio were gracious enough to not only let me into their life, but their business as well. If you like the video give it a thumbs up, subscribe, and/or shout it from the mountain tops… 🤓
Thanks for stopping by and Godbless.
Pretend PSA for Communications@Syracuse on VA Medical
As required for my multimedia storytelling class, I have uploaded a Public Service Announcement wrote, directed, and filmed by me. It starts with Daniel having a nightmare, hearing a grenade explode, and waking up terrified.
She goes back to sleep, blinks into the next scene, and researches on her computer how to get help. Henry, playing a video game, tells her she will regret calling, but her nightmares and her newly acquired knowledge online, convinces her to make the call.
I want to thank my Ate Nina and Alan for volunteering as my guinea pigs in my academic endeavors and my journey as a filmmaker. Thanks for being reliable in an unreliable world. Mahal Kita!
Fashionista. A Short Sound.
Hey ya’ll. This was a video I did not too long ago, and my professor thought it was one of my better creations. I then thought to myself, “why not share it with my WordPress fam?” So, Here it is. Let me know in the comments below if you found this on WordPress, LinkedIn, or Twitter. Thanks for watching!
For the camera nerds like me: I used a GH5S with the 12-35mm 2.8f, and Cine V profile. Premiere Pro was my editing software, and I used a Microsoft desktop computer with a 1080ti graphics card for workflow.
Jokers Wild a Short Film by Reynaldo Rivera
Hey WordPress Fam,
I made this video for a class i’m taking; Multimedia Storytelling. I like the colors in the film. I used my GH5s, a white balance card(but its actually grey), and the profile Cine V on my camera. Then, I edited it on Adobe Premiere Pro, found royalty free music on https://www.epidemicsound.com, and exported it in 1080p 30 fps as a MOV file.
Let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions for future videos on my YouTube Channel.
The One With the Teacher Taking My Yo-Yo.
It starts with a solicitor given permission to present yo-yos to the entire 3rd grade class. Everyone buys a yo-yo, including me, and they become an instant hit. I start learning tricks and sharing techniques with my classmates.
The teacher confiscates my yo-yo because I wouldn’t stop playing with it in class so I run home to my dad and cry hysterically. I ask my Father if he could get my yo-yo back, and he agrees, grabbing his keys, and loading his piece; a handgun.
I created a monster. My Father was an alcoholic and drug addict, and had been known to make questionable decisions. Bringing a loaded handgun to an elementary school was one of them.
Trying to deescalate the situation I tell my father that it’s not a big deal. We continue to walk around campus, we walk through the halls, and literally no one is to be seen. I tell my father again that I don’t need my yo-yo and that the teacher promised to give it the next day.
We go home. The end.
Watch the video!
