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.
I’m glad we can agree there are more wheels than doors in the world. This argument is interesting because it is all based on what you perceive as a door. Would you consider a garage door or a doggie door to be included in this agreement on the side of doors?
It’s hard to know what really is classified as a door and what isn’t. Is it anything with hinges? Are cupboard doors… doors? I’m not sure where we draw the line, but I think it’s similar to the argument of “gears are wheels,” meaning if we accept anything with hinges as a door, then anything round that can rotate is a wheel. The debate can kind of just keep expanding indefinitely, which is actually pretty fascinating.
Noooo! I thought I was free of this debate. From what I have determined in discussing this arugement with people is that no one really knows what the definition of anything is. Also, you did a great job with your video.
P.S. They also make doors that open on wheels to make this question even worse.
Very convincing, that hot-wheels point is something I didn’t even think bout… I think I am now team wheel!
Bikes. Lol. I love how it’s kind of a nonsequiter! Definitely gives me the vibe that it’s true to you!
As a lifelong bicyclist who stopped listening to the Doors in high school, I have to agree. The slides and video combination work well. I wonder if some background audio could have been used to push the argument further, but it works very well as is.
