For this week, the first assignment I have completed is called “A Changing Character.” In this assignment, you take your audience through the life of a TV character by mashing up pictures of them over the years and putting them all together.
I chose to do two characters from one of my favorite shows growing up, Boy Meets World. I chose these two characters, because these characters literally grew up together on the show as a couple. Their names are Cory and Topanga and they are the big love story on the show. I wanted to capture their love story through the seasons, so people watcing could see the transformation. The show started in 1993 and the characters were only 13 years old. It went all the way to year 2000, where they were in their college years.Then in 2014 a spin-off of the show was created called Girl Meets World. Girl Meets World follows the life of Cory and Topanga’s daughter, so we again get to see the evolution of their relationship. It is cool to see a TV couple grow up basically in front of my eyes for 20 years, and I thought it was special to create a video of that.
I created the video through IMovie. I found an array of images of them together on the internet and put them in chronological order. I then added title slides and transitions to add some pizazz. For the background music I chose the theme song from the first season and mashed it up with the theme song of the last season, so it kind of went along with the evolution of the show theme.
