Flipstick (2)

Matt Fales and I worked on the video together. I invented this game and wanted to make a short video about how I came up with the idea and how it is played. Neither of us have ever made a video or used adobe premiere, however, using youtube we were able to learn the basics and put this short video together. I wanted the video to feel a bit raw, like you are there. For that, some of it is a bit choppy but I beleive the message gets across. We filmed almost all of it on a fake go pro and a few shots on an iphone. Through the project I have learned so much about videography and how to use adobe premiere.
