I decided for my very own assignment it would be fun to make an arts and crafts tutorial. I went with a paper hat tutorial because it was pretty simple and I have actually never made one before. The description for this assignment is as follows:
You probably have watched at least one arts and crafts video in your life. Now is your chance to make your own! Record yourself making a fun arts and crafts project tutorial. Make sure you use voice overlay with step by step instructions and music to enhance the video. I followed this tutorial on YouTube in order to make my own tutorial on how to make a paper hat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_tDKdXhv0g
The Work Itself
Story Behind the Story
I wanted to make this assignment because I believe everyone can enjoy arts and crafts since it is so broad and you can make almost anything you want. It’s also a big part of our culture. If you go to YouTube, you can find thousands and thousands of fun art project tutorials. Famous vloggers do it quite often as well, which shows that people really enjoy these type of videos. I chose to make a hat tutorial because it just seemed like a fun and relatively simple project. Also, I have never made one before so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Narrating the Process
I found the perfect YouTube tutorial to follow along with and grabbed the corresponding supplies (Newspaper, ruler and pen).
Made a video recording of me making the paper hat.
Uploaded video to Movie Maker
To make the voice overlay with instructions, I recorded myself speaking while I watched the video I made, which can be seen below.
I added the voice instructions audio to the clip.
I added a title, music, and credits.
