The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Um, so I did do have I got it into any video before this, but that was more academic oriented. I know some people did want to see a video about more. The creative process for getting you Tish specifically as a film major. Yeah, I'm just gonna be going through that and kind of telling you guys my experience with it, and hopefully it can give you, you know, some sort of enlightenment. Um, I know that when I was, like applying, I scoured YouTube, revealing this, but I just could not find one. So the first thing and why you does, except the common application. I'm sure you'll know exactly like what that is, but a time years here in high school. Like first found out, that there is this, like, whole creative portfolio thing at that was pretty daunting to me because I'm definitely someone who's coming from like not really, um, Link are. I just did like some basic, um, digital arts classes. Um yeah, I was a little bit intimidated by a portfolio apart. Um yeah, if you are also intimidated by this portfolio thing, have no fear, because this portfolio was actually basically all writing and yeah, it's just like writing problems they give you, so I'll go through all the steps. So for the first step of the creative portfolio, you need a resume. You need a one page resume that highlights creative work, accomplished activities and or development relevant employment. Honestly, this first step, the resume is probably one of the easiest part because we're really just listing stuff that you've done, Um, that has related to anything creative And what I mean, like anything creative. I mean, anything like, I literally put like my French club on that I don't know. Maybe I like things I didn't put down was like things that were obviously just not creative or relating to any type of film work like that. Just two things that you did, um, within your school or your community, and that is totally fine. The second part of the creative portfolio is a leadership and collaboration anecdote. So 300 words is not a lot of guys like I know it sounds like a lot of you guys, but it's really not a lot of dollars. It could look like a lot of different things, so But I know I just It helps me to have examples. Um, but we decided we'd make our film equally scary. I really did try to make it, like, you know, engaging using strong action verbs and such and using like I Hopefully this is the right way. You know where you are, Kind of like do the thing where you build up to something you know, like to create a little bit of suspense. Um, but yeah, that that's my And hopefully, you know, having that little example could help you guys a little bit. Um, and prompt is to describe an offending your life and how it changed you or someone close to you. Because of course, storytelling is just like a court thing. In films And, like, I don't know, as nice as your film might look, it doesn't have a good story. Just like, what is it being the day, You know, like, you know what it's like? Substance. Um, I won't show you guys my personal story one, because it is very personal. You know, I got a really good feedback on it from a teacher. Um, yeah, for this one, I would just say Try not to be cliche. You know, don't always get too much feedback things, because sometimes it kind of dilutes your artistic vision if you're kind of having all these thistles talking at you um, yeah, I feel like I can't give you much advice for this Yeah. So the fourth part of the creator of the creative portfolio is artistic influences. Ray Hamilton and I really just wanted to write like a really cool Rheiman hold because I don't know when memoranda they did that with the whole thing of Hamilton um, yes. If you will, but what I did waas I feel like you know what? As my AP language and composition teacher always said show, Don't tell. I think it's fine, you know, show Don't tell. Of course not least, is the creative submission so creative. Basically, the property is a creative submission that shows visual storytelling and imaginative expression of thought so you can choose one of the following You do a film and it can't be any longer than 10 minutes. You know, I just feel like the story of it does make up for it. Or, you know, you don't need like, super high end expensive stuff to, you know, make something that has value.
