My review

LAUGHTER YOGA IN PEACE LAB

The digital story ‘Laughter Yoga in Peace Lab.’ Is a documentary examining the life of a Lawyer who founded the ‘Peace Lab’ to coach meditation and yoga to train people to ease stress and tensions in life. To talk about the experience, it was a shocking and funny moment while watching the video. Because it was weird to see people laughing loud, like few on the floor and few standing. Later I realised how stressful and painful their life is.

The person behind the video should have done lots of research regarding content, editing, camera and so on. The shots were very amateur, but I felt a raw feel to the video with made me feel realistic. The most interesting part is video’s target audience is so specific, i.e., people who are interested in stress relief or may be yoga. I couldn’t get much information about the social media campaign to reach the audience. Another thing I wish to talk about is ‘Logo’, to me the meaning of the logo is a single eyed yogi.

THIS IS NOT THE CASE

This is the only video I like technically, they had a perfect camera and editing plans. The black and white,  video’s noise filters and Charlie Chaplin style of approach were my favourite picks in the project. The video was about an overseas student from Asia trying to become a part of new Australian society. However, she alway meets some embarrassing things thanks to the culture difference. The plot was funny and made all of us engaged and laugh in class.

They have made a good step in their social media campaign, they have almost used all the available social media platforms to share their work and reach the maximum audience. Editing was perfect in the video, timely syncing of slow and fast motions made the video more attractive, the piece of music running throughout the video reminded me of old Charlie Chaplin movies.
