This is 5 star, video assignment 608, Supercut It. The instructions were:
“Create a supercut montage of overused dialogue, themes, motifs, filmmaking techniques, etc. for a particular character, tv show, film, and/or public figure. A supercut is a “fast-paced montage of short video clips that obsessively isolates a single element from its source, usually a word, phrase, or cliche from film and TV.”
This assignment caught my eye because I love video montages, and I thought it would be really cool to create one myself. When I read this assignment I immediately knew I wanted to created a funny montage of the strange Sheldon Cooper from “The Big Bang Theory.” It is one of my favorite shows, I think I like it so much because of the funny things Sheldon says and does. Also, I am kind of socially awkward, not to the extent of Sheldon but I feel like I can kind of relate. This is a show my entire family watches together and loves; we even record the episodes just in case we aren’t around when they come on.
I think that even if you have never seen “The Big Bang Theory,” my video montage will allow you to experience Sheldon’s hilarious and awkward personality! I like to think of this montage as telling the story of Sheldon’s everyday life.
To create this montage, I first found funny Sheldon clips on YouTube. Then I downloaded each one I planned to use. Next I dragged the clips into Movie Maker (I stopped using Streamclip, It started messing up my computer!) and I trimmed the clips down to make the montage more fast-paced. I only kept the segments that were necessary. Once all of the clips were trimmed, I dragged them around until I was satisfied with the order. The most time consuming step was trimming down all of the clips.
