Submitted in fulfillment of Period Piece Mashup video assignment located here. 4 stars.
The year was a long time ago. The place, somewhere in Europe…really ay actor with a British accent can play any European nationality and it works for American television. Regardless, it was a long time ago in Europe. Armies from warring countries (again, in Europe) were invading each other like crazy. There was lots of killing and looting villages and stuff like that. Then a king was crowned and culture came back to the kingdom in Europe. There was dancing, and magic tricks, and everyone was having a good time, except the one guy. The one guy was getting laid non-stop but somehow he’s the victim. This is the story (or the preview for the story) of his revenge…and also getting laid.
The video itself is safe for work I promise; however, the source material is pretty spicy.
The source material was pulled from Netflix shows The Last Kingdom and Norsemen, both of which are phenomenal series. Aside from the normal challenges of mashing up different pieces (soundtracks don’t mix, not the same lighting and stuff), one of these shows is totally serious, and one is just complete satire. That’s why I chose them, because I thought it’d make for an interesting combo. I made a tutorial video for making the video itself, but the final product also required skills I got during the audio and visual assignments, so I’ve included the relevant (older) tutorial videos for them as well. I used Windows Video Editor for the video, PowerPoint for the title slides, and Audacity for sound editing.
