It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)
1. There were 18 different shots, not including the credits at the end. Every clip was unique. There was a mixture of video clips and pictures. Most of the pictures used some form of the Ken Burns effect. Several images, or symbols, appear multiple times, but they are different actual images. One example is the waterfall.
2. Yes, the video uses the Ken Burns effect seven times. I fell that it was effective because it made the video appear to be in constant motion, making the still images similar to the video clips.
3. For the most part, there are no transitions. It simply jumps from one clip to another. Between two clips there is a small space full of black.
4. There is the audio of the poem, along with what seems to be Bob Dylan’s music in the background. Later it transitions from the poem to actual video of him singing. The video clips and pictures are played during the introduction of the song, with only instruments.
5. The video matches the audio very well. Especially the part where it transitions to black for a few seconds, emphasizing the words. I don’t feel that the creator could have done anything to improve the alignment.
6. No, the creator doesn’t use an opening title.
7. Yes, the video incorporates credits at the end. It credits Bob Dylan’s words, the editor of the video- Alli Rowedder, and gives special thanks to Flickr and Youtube. Yes, credits are contained in the YouTube description-
