Firstly let me say that creating supercuts are a lot more difficult then they seem. I’ve never dabbled in editing videos so I had no idea just how complicated the process can be especially for a newbie like me. Though I suppose that the finished product always looks so amazing that you rarely consider the effort and time that went into making it. Nevertheless I do want to make a supercut in the future as I think learning how to edit videos and put clips together is a useful skill to know.
Since doing the supercut didn’t pan out I instead opted to do an assignment I saw on the Daily Create. The assignment was to take a picture of any public figure then put a quote on the picture from another, somehow related public figure and then attribute the quote to another related public figure.
The public figure whose picture I choose to use is John Green, the author of The Fault In Our Stars, Paper Towns and my personal favorite Looking For Alaska. The quote I choose comes from Cassandra Clare who is the author of my all time favorite book series The Infernal Devices. Then I attributed the quote to Charles Dickens a 19th century writer who has written two of my favorite old literature pieces, A Tale of Two Cities and Oliver Twist.
I created this by using Giphy. At first I tried using Imgur but I could not figure out how to put the text onto the actual picture as opposed to underneath. However, while Giphy worked the only thing I didn’t like was that I was forced to animate the words. I choose to make them sparkle because the other options were to dramatic for me but I still wish I had been allowed to just leave it be.
