Greetings fellow ASU officers. The mission was a success. Despite 14 not returning we were able to recover some of the footage from their camera, which mysteriously appeared in the office two days ago. This is a win for us and be reassured 14 knew what they were going into and was glad to make this sacrifice.
How I did This
To film I went on a walk and took some short videos. Then I emailed them all to myself and uploaded them to OpenShot. After I got them in the right order, I knew I wanted them to be black and white, but I didn’t know how. Using google I found a site with answers on how to do it. Using my knew knowledge I found the color saturation effect and brought it down to 0. There was another effect called wave, which I used to make my videos, well, wavy, and then I put the bars on them. Next, I picked out the transition I wanted to use and applied it to all the clips. I turned down the audio to make the videos silent. I found some spooky music on Pixabay and placed that in the project. Then, deciding I wanted a title card, I moved everything over and created a title card on OpenShot. I had a lot of fun making this and don’t think I would change anything if I did it again.
I decided to create my own assignment this time, which I will call Found Footage. For this I decided to make my own found footage video relating back to my final project. Since I had to go out and film it, figure out the effects and transitions needed on OpenShot, create a title card, find spooky music to use, and provide a story behind it, I’d say it is worth 5 stars.

The saga continues! This is so cool! You chose such good clips of Fredericksburg and the effects were not what I expected in the best way! it is giving very much first couple episodes of WandaVision vibes. So good!
this was super cool and well done, love the shots of downtown fred!
Nice. The audio is especially effective. It looks like you’re going for a VHS video effect. VEED (https://www.veed.io/tools/video-editor-effects) looks like it has some good ones which you might want to try out.
That was what I was going for. I’ll be sure to check VEED out!
