Creative Strand Reflection

Alex , Jay and Rena 2013 Rap from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

Intro: Last week we were given the opportunity to create a movie based on an event of our choice . We had to think of something that was different , that would stand out from all the rest.  So we both agreed on researching Martin Luther King , I Have A Dream.
We wrote a rap together, rehearsed it , recorded it then we made a animation to go along with it.

The reason why we chose Martin Luther King was because he is a true hero to us all, he stopped racism back in 1963 when he spoke his mind with a speech called “ I Have A Dream”

Positives: I really enjoyed working on this project because not only did we create animations we also learned a lot of information about Martin Luther King, he set his people free from racism so that the blacks would have the same rights as the whites.  Blacks had experienced things that no one should ever experience it was horrible, but thanks to Martin Luther King he put a stop to it.

Negatives: (Things to work on) I personally think that Alexandria and I could have managed our time better, so that we could create a more detailed animation with awesome editing. I didn’t like the fact that we had to wait for IMAC’S and by the time we were given one , we were rushed to upload our video  to vimeo but we weren’t quite finished with our editing!!

Interesting:  The thing that I found interesting about this project was how much knowledge we had gained in a week, we had learned so much about Martin Luther King in such a small space of time. The other thing was , how cool our rap was!!

This week was awesome, but next time we will definitely manage our time better.  We will work  harder and we will make a more detailed movie with a good message to go along with it.

  1. Hey Alexandria. My name's Paul Wesley Etheridge, but I go by Wesley. Anyways, I'm a student at the University of South Alabama and I'm majoring in Secondary Education so I can be a teacher. I'm taking a class called EDM 310
    right now and I'm learning about blogging and other forms of technology that can be used in the classroom. Here's a link to my personal blog, if you get a chance check it out. Feel free to comment on my posts as well. Anyways, I like the rap you guys made. I'm actually from Alabama so I'm a huge fan of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. too. I live about 3 hours away from where he made his famous march. I also love rap music and I like the Biggie beat that you guys used for your rap. My favorite rap artist is a guy named Lecrae from Atlanta, Georgia. In some of his songs he actually talks about Martin Luther King jr. and the sacrifice he made for African Americans. I'm glad I was assigned to your blog for this week. Keep up the great posting.
