Lecture #3

Matt, the star of “Where the Hell is Matt” was here explaining the thoughtful process behind the construction of his narrative. The shots are not random and I learned that they were well thought out pieces but the emotion received by the viewer is real.

An example of this technique is used in his videos by limiting the number of people in the shot. By doing this, Matt is able to fill the scene with just enough people providing the viewer with emotions of happiness due to the fact that we can see the faces of the people dancing. Everyone is smiling and it looks like they are having a good time and that energy can be felt over the internet and sent to others as well.

Matt’s message is free, for now and it appears that he would like to keep it that way. I sure hope so!
