Will Smith Transformation


For my final Mashup Assignment, I decided to venture into video after making the other two using photoshop. I went with an assignment called Actor Transformation which showed the transition of actors from earlier in their careers to the present day.

I went with Will Smith who has been a Hollywood staple now for the past 20 years. He started off as a rapper in the late 1980’s and has become quite a successful actor. Despite this time span, he has magically failed to age. In any case, its pretty cool to see how things have gone full circle.

In this mashup, I included 5 different scenes showing this transition:

1988 – DJ Jazzy Jeff & Will Smith – Parents Just Don’t Understand

1990 – Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

1995 – Bad Boys

2002 – Men in Black II

2007 – I Am Legend

2014 – Winter’s Tale

I created this video by downloading them off Youtube using KeepVid and uploaded them in Windows Movie Maker and simply split off the excess parts of the video. I then used the fade technique to give the video a seem less transition.
