Lately I have been dabbling quite a lot with iMovie. This experimentation has allowed me to let my creative juices flow even more than before. It seems the possibilities are almost (iMovie 8…cough, cough) limitless with a flip video camera and good software. This video is from Spanish class. It is a trailer about a book we finished reading, Crónica de una Muerte Anunciada (Chronicle of a Death Foretold) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The store has one central moment, the death of Santiago Nasar. In the novella Marquez immerses himself into the story as another character (think The Great Gatsby) and ultimately is affected by this story of twisted fate. For this film I did all of the editing and added the music, “Requiem for a Dream,” as well as did a bit of filming and less-than professional acting. It is black and white because the entire story is set in the past as a memory.
