Creating a new product was never easy but instead, we should take a deep breath and working hard to approach success.
Round five of Multimedia/Technology class, I worked on a project using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro. Cindy, our teacher gave us the time for us to review the lessons that we learned in the whole year and we were allowed to work on our own project using some of the tools we have learned.
I chose my own project which is to create a color-coded lyrics video – a type of lyrics video that is used for a group of singers – with the color filter for the person who is singing and the rest of the team will be in a blackout filter. Before this project, Getting to watch other songs that have the color -coded lyrics had been a very wonderful feeling to me. To me, I definitely wanted to create the video before but thought that it will be a big challenge and that I would need to spend a lot of time on the video. Therefore, I changed my mind and I didn’t make it succeed. However, when there is a chance for me to create a product as the result of the round for Multimedia class, I decided to make a color-coded lyrics video. I took a deep breath and was ready for the beginning of my journey and the steps that I have to face before meeting success. The work reference is a video on Youtube that I watched called How to create color-coded lyrics. The video was extremely useful but there were some obstacles that I still needed to face. One of the problems was I couldn’t find the tools in Photoshop because I was using a different workspace from the video so I asked my friend and he helped me to find the solution. Also, the video only showed how to make the cover of the video but not putting the lyrics and changing the filter. Therefore, I needed to find a way for myself to have a product at the end. While I was putting the lyrics end, there was one more issue – I couldn’t find the fonts that worked for Korean fonts so I looked for help on the internet. I tried to follow the steps that the internet showed me but it didn’t work smoothly. As such, I made the decision to ask my friend again. However, he also did what I just did from the internet and it didn’t work again. Frustration started running in my brain and increased the feeling of disappointment. I didn’t give up though, I tried looking for the Korean font in the font tool. Fortunately, I saw a font with Korean words so I clicked and it worked the way I wanted. Fascination started taking control of the frustration in my feeling and helped to save the loss of happiness back. I was quite enthusiastic and started to work and work on the project until I would finish and the outcome is what I expected it to be.
I enjoyed working on the project so much; I really love the work that I have done. To me, it is such a great accomplishment. This was a new experience for me. “Watching others have it is very interesting but never look down on yourself that you can’t do it.”: a quote from me. I wish I could have my own time, spending time to create the video again and I would always accept the chances that I have. Here is the product below this article:
