Expansion: images and video

After incorporating the images of text into the piece, I decided that it’s not effective. The text detracted from the visual, and made the piece seem as though I had no confidence in the visual elements. So I decided to eliminate them, but only if I could locate some other assets, perhaps video assets, that might accomplish my aim a bit less obtrusively. The story continues, as I headed to YouTube:

TEXT (from above video):

“I spent the past half an hour, at this point in time, working with some YouTube footage that I have decided to go ahead and incorporate into the piece. I’m trying to use some YouTube footage, which are mainly videos of people who actually skateboard, explaining what skateboarding is and why it’s enjoyable to them. I’m going to do this instead of using some of the textual slides I’ve created so that I can bring another multimodal element into the piece and let some people with more credibility than my typing has, do the speaking for me.”
