The Lesson Of Life
Introduction- I picked this song because it gives it a sad and calm feel. This is because his face expressions were sad. Also, when the cook gave him the ramen he let out a puff. That shows some tension so I added the song with the guitar strums. As well, when he puts his chop sticks up it was like he was trying to relax. He might be sad because his boss yelled at him or maybe even fired him. I can tell this because he has a brief case in his hands so he probably came from work.
Rising Action- I choose these songs for the rising action because they work together to give it a tense and scary feeling. This is needed because the business man has just been sucked into a bowl of ramen noodles and is being chased by a huge monster. Then he gets pulled down by the monster and kept in his hand. He was about to be eaten. This music has a mystery feeling. I put all of these song selections to make it loud and scary in the beginning. In addition, the mystery feel is important. It is a mystery because the ramen is floating around behind him.
Climax- This song is good for the climax because it is exciting and jumpy. This part in this clip is an exciting because the business man is strong when the ramen noodles goes in his mouth and spins. This song matches the part when he punches the monster. In class when we were taking a look and exploring Wevideo Renush picked this song and it really fit in. I liked it and that was one of the reasons why I used this song. The business man threw his glasses of at one time because the ramen noodles gave him power.
Falling action- This music is a happy tune. This is what I need because there is a big smile on his face after he finishes his broth. The falling action leads to the conclusion and the conclusion is a happy song so I made this song a happy connection to the conclusion song. The happy song is rejoicing. This is also important because he has defeated the monster and is back again enjoying the ramen. His ramen took him through an adventure and he has defeated the bad. I can tell he is so happy because he is spilling the broth on his shirt but he didn’t care.
Conclusion- This part is a mystery and a happy ending. It is a mystery because at the end he disappears. It is happy because he left his brief case and left because what ever happened at work is enough so he quits and moves on. The ramen and the cook helped this business man to learn to move on if something is bothering you. He took his glasses off because in that fight he didn’t need the glasses so he thinks maybe he doesn’t need them in real life. To sum up, the salary man’s journey taught him a lot. This journey will help him in the future.
What I learned doing this work- When I did this writing I had to go back to the video to see the small details that my songs matched with. I also looked back at the original clip with sound and looked at the intensity and the type of song to help me. I learned that it is not just a video with music but there is a reason for the music mostly.
If I do this video again I would- Next time I would try to add some of my words in the microphone. As well, I could try to add more songs together to make a good combination.
Some people I would thank for help are, Mr.Stepan, John Carlo, Yonathan, Nicole, Eliza, Aster, Marie, and Paul. THANKS.
At the end when the salary man disappears I think that is a sign that he left the job and is moving on with his life. The song changes from a sad song from the beginning to a happy song at the end. The mood definitely changes in this song.
In summary, this is an emotion full movie.
