Blog Assignment #1

I found a site that contained a video about a musician known as “Blind” Willie Johnson. The  video told his life story in under a minute and a half effectively as an animation. The video included musicians, past and present, that his music inspired. The one thing that stuck out to me was that the video was silent. At the bottom of the video had text that gave the details of his life. The music was simply a track, presumably Blind Willie himself, playing guitar and humming. The creators of the video effectively did a biography of somebody without spoken words and only included the most important facts of his life. I believe that it would be interesting to do silent video stories for the class as like a gallery, similar to what the website that I found the video on did. That could yield some creative and interesting results.
