While I’m not much of a confrontational person, I find myself getting very passionate about some things to the point where I would die on a hill to defend them. This argument is one of those situations, as pointless and cheesy as it sounds: I am 100% certain there are more wheels than doors in the world. I wanted to take this unfaltering opinion of mine and turn it into a video that can both provide a bit of entertainment but more importantly some concrete reasons to join the wheel side of the debate.
When creating this, I tried to stay true to the kind of person I am and the kind of content I like to create. I’m extremely goofy and laidback, often cracking jokes or saying things that are simply funny, for whatever reason, so I wanted to translate that into an argument that has a similar goofy quality to it. I’ll admit, for a while I was unsure what side of the debate I was on, but after seeing it all over the internet, I became more and more of a fan of team wheels. At this point, I genuinely cannot imagine being on the doors side of the debate, and hopefully the contents of the video can explain why. I thought working in the “BIKE” bits could add a bit of surprise and confused laughter to the equation, catching the audience a bit off guard. While this video did take a while to write a script for, find images for, record, and edit, I didn’t come across many problems, if any. I’m not completely happy with the pacing and cadence of the video, as some cuts are a bit awkward, but I think I’m improving my editing ability and have good direction in my work. Originally, when seeing this assignment, I had contemplated making a video arguing why cat people are better and why cats should be the preferred pet, but I thought that it was too polarizing of a debate and I wanted to go for something a bit more whimsical and fun.
