For some reason I couldn’t edit my older post that has the video in it, so I’m making a new post for this paragraph.
I made this video based on Arthur Rimbaud’s poem “Novel” in which he conveys the message that experience in the best teacher and I think the video portrays this message well! I really enjoyed making this Digital Essay, from formulating ideas, to taking the videos, to editing the videos. unfortunately I didn’t have access to a real camera, so I was limited to my Iphone camera the entire time. But like they say “a bad worker always blames the tools.” Or something along those lines.
Having to make this Digital Essay also inspired me to write a better paper, because I was motivated to put more effort into the thesis and the message of my essay. I wish we had to create a video for every essay assigned during the year, because it really helped me! If I could go back in time I would make a video for every essay I wrote for this class, and keep it for my own records, because it would have helped me write much better essays, and inspired me to work harder.
Overall, the experience with this assignment was great! And by far my favorite assignment of the school year.
