A PBA (Performance Based Assessment) is when a student either writes an essay or creates a product, sometimes both, that measures the students achievement in the course. Angelina and I chose to focus on music videos as the topic for our project. We chose this as our subject for our assignment because we felt as though it would be fun and interesting. This topic showcases our knowledge in the class in many ways. For example, it will show how we learned to use a camera properly, the new angles we have mastered, rule of thirds being cemented into our brains and how we've gained knowledge that helps us take a beautiful well lit shot that we would not have been able to do before. Other than showing off our new camera skills we are also able to showcase our new profound editing skills with Final Cut Pro, such as transitions and transformation techniques. Using all of this new intelligence Mr. Sanderl has taught us will help Angelina and me make the best video we can while also showing all the knowledge we have acquired in Digital Media.

The most challenging part of the PBA was actually making the music video. This was the most challenging to me because I have never had to make a video before and I also do not have much free time on my hand to do so. This was a difficult process that I didn't think would be a problem when I first started, but in the end my partner Angelina and I figured it out and got our work done. Like I said before, time was our biggest road block in this project. We both are extremely busy people and that made it super difficult with timing of the work. In the end we figured it out, she did half the work and I did the other half separately because our schedules could not match up. The critique results show that Angelina and I had an average of a 3 for all of our products. I do believe we could have done better, but I'm proud of the work we had done.
