The Music Video Project was a lot of fun to me. At the beginning, I didn't know what to expect however, once you got your group and chapter, you were able to do your own thing.
We were creative and were inspired by Thriller by Michael Jackson. My group prepared lyrics relating to Chapter 8 of Goon Squad and the beat of Thriller. Performing it was better than I thought it would be. I got to sing for my group which was funny. I haven't had a project in any class where I got to sing so that was cool. We wore zip up jackets and sunglasses. Being apart of a project like this brought me closer to my classmates because I worked with people who I haven't worked with and I opened up to the class by singing "Killer."
Just like how the world is postmodern, the book and our song is as well. Based on Chapter 8, we had a certain perspective on what happened and by writing lyrics based off it as a literary analysis, our parody was postmodern. Our audience who witnessed it live had a certain point of view on the chapter and song based on us. Also, doing a song of your choice brought out change in how you experience and show which is the bigger picture of the book.
