  • Training Engaged and Documented (WeVideo.com): Shots that were suppose to put you in the eyes of a student (POV) and cuts to convey confusion and that everything is the same
  • Short Film with Beginning Middle and End (To help create basic edits): Beginning wake pov, middle, get prepared, end school
  • Basic Editing Techniques Used and Documented: A standard cut (first cut), a smash cut, jump cut, and a match cut (second cut), standard cut (3rd cut), fade in/fade out cut (fourth cut)


  • My cuts are suppose to show how waking up to the feeling of unmotivation feels, especial how it feels to me, and how the days feel to fast but also extremely slow
