“The Buffaloed Buffalo from Buffalo Wyoming”
I was tasked with producing a creative video between 3-5 minutes in length to reflect on, define, interpret, or reenact the following passage: “Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.” According to Wikipedia, “Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo” is a grammatically correct sentence in American English, often presented as an example of how homonyms and homophones can be used to create complicated linguistic constructs through lexical ambiguity.”
In my planning stage, I envisioned some basic animations drawn, colored, and cut out by hand along with a storyline that could be considered to be like a children’s storybook. I used an iPhone to film the video, Audacity to record the narration using a microphone headset, PowerDirector 14 to edit and produce the video, and then I uploaded it to Vimeo. I also used PowerPoint to create all of the titles and pages with words, which I then saved as images. Royalty-free music was used from www.bensound.com.
