My intent when creating this website was to showcase my work done at college, in order so that I could promote myself to future clients, employers and general audiences.
I decided to use a cover picture of a tribe (Wodaabe tribe), because Learning about different cultures is what I enjoy doing the most. I also think the picture itself is very dramatic and will catch peoples attention. This picture is also very similar to my WordPress cover picture its from the same tribe, I wanted to keep a consist theme throughout all my work.
During my Year 1 (FMP) I created a very short documentary about religion, which is a topic that interests me a lot. In this documentary I included one very graphic video of one of the practices done to children in Congo. I wanted to include this video on the front page of my because it is my most dramatic work and it will shock the audience and make them intrigued and want to see more of my work.
I included a video of this documentary but decided to remove it because it was to biest and did not show a balanced argument.
I used this section to included three pieces of my work, I am going to include the tutorial also below and write about the process of making it.
Instead of having the documentary (video) in the centre of my Website, I am going to use one of the videos I make for my YouTube channel instead. This means that one of my videos will have to be visual and not only audio. Because you cant hear the audio on the website, and most people may not even have headphones.
I replaced the video in the middle with my shape animation, My teacher told me to change this because it is not my personal work I took the piece of footage from a YouTube documentary and she did not consider it reliable enough. I prefer this as the centre video because it is more eye catching and interesting, I do not want the first thing my audience sees to be a child being abused.
This is a picture of the description I included under my shape animation, In the text I describe briefly the process taken to create the Shape animation.
This is how my front page looks, I might replace the image in the middle of the animation with a scene from my YouTube video. I want me website to be a better representation of the skills I have.
This is the about me page, Which gives a very brief description of me and my skills. I might include an image from one of my YouTube videos. It would be more appropriate to include a picture of myself although I dont have an pictures of myself on my phone, also I dont feel comfortable including a picture of myself for personal reasons.
I have not completed my Tutorials yet, my intention once its done is to include the tutorials either behind the text or replace it with the image of the animation that I have their already. I wonder if the audience will be able to hear the tutorial when they view my website, if I have to infer something to the audience I might include subtitles and an audio.
