The “Play It Backward, Jack” assignment was to “Take a video of something in your life–someone running, the toilet flushing, the sink dripping, someone spitting, whatever–and reverse it!”

This assignment seemed pretty simple to me, so I decided to make it a little more interesting. Instead of taking a video and reversing it one time, I took a short clip and played it backwards four times right in a row. I recorded the video when I was volunteering on Wednesday with Big Brothers Big Sisters. The video is of my Little, Nadia, skipping down the hallway.

I used VSDC Free Video Editor to line up the video with a fun, almost circus sounding song from this website. It’s pretty fun to watch, since the video replaying lines up with the music. I also added closing credits to the end of the video. You can see part of the editing process below.

After I was done editing the video, I downloaded it to my computer and then uploaded it to YouTube. You can watch the finished product below!
