0:00-0:01- The video kicks off with the word “Saturday” in white font and the time 2:51PM in orange font, both on a black background. No music is playing, it’s just a quiet scene.

0:02-0:04- An African-American man, who looks to be in his late 20’s or early 30’s, is laying on the ground in his home with what seems to be his infant daughter, who is 1 or 2 years of age. She’s wearing a blue shirt and a pink hair piece with a flower on it. The man has hazel eyes, a thin mustache with a little goatee, with a ring in his left ring finger and a backpack on. He also is wearing a white sweatshirt and has short hair.

0:05-0:09- The man then begins to crawl on the floor along with the child. The girl continues to crawl with him.

0:10-0:16- He and the child continue to crawl.

0:17-0:24- A white text appears that says, “It only takes a moment to make a moment.” With the text still on the screen, he looks at the infant and she smiles back at him.

0:25-031- The screen goes black but you can still here the man beatboxing. White text appears on the screen that reads, “Take time to be a dad today.” After that disappears, the hashtag, “#makeamovement” appears. The video was about being a father and being there for your children.

    Doorknob, I’ve looked at your Notes and see, to my dismay, that you’re reporting on the dialog. This is a VISUAL Rhetoric task as the assignment instructions and my repeated classroom instructions should have made clear. In your revisions, remove all references to what the characters say and to any sounds you hear. Mute the video as you watch it to keep your attention focused on what you can see. Describe it is such detail that your reader can visualize the scene without ever watching it.

    I’ve made extensive feedback comments on several of your classmates’ posts for this assignment. If you want to streamline the process of getting to good results on this task, consider eavesdropping on one or more of those conversations. The best part of having an open blog is to facilitate the recursive nature of writing. You’re encouraged, not discouraged, to leapfrog early draft deficiencies by seeing what others have been counseled to improve in their first efforts.
