I made a music video! well, I “directed a music video!” is probably more accurate. I didn’t rap, I didn’t make the beats; but, I did shoot, edit, and add effects to it. I learned a lot while editing this video so I posted it on YouTube:
The artist who raps goes by Da Grizzly if you dig his music and would like to search for more of his songs. If you would like to know who all the people in the video are I posted their info at the end of the video in the credits.
I used Adobe Premiere Pro as my non-linear editing system. I used YouTube and LinkedIn Learning to teach myself how to do the effects, and for guidance on what “hip hop” videos are supposed to look like.
The camera I used to shoot the video was a Sony A7III and I shot at 4k 24p and 1080 120p. If you would like to know more information about how I shot or what I shot the video let me know in the comments or contact me page.

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…
This video showcases a 10 second mock-up of a coffee advertisement. I want to give a shout out to Kyle Novak! I don’t know if he’ll ever see this, but I would like to give him credit. He was the one who taught me how to create animation with After Effects. There is music, and it might be loud, so be aware of your volume levels. Yay for coffee!
For my Advanced Public Speaking course at CSUN, I had to organize, coordinate, and create a presentation. My team and I decided to do it at the Boys and Girls club and make the presentation on Communication Techniques. Sorry for the bad video quality. I had to be especially careful not to video tape any of the kids, and I was new to filming. Other than that, enjoy!
