Anyway, to document the physical changes of the character, I had to look through a couple hours of footage on YouTube and Google. There were 86 episodes featuring Wesley’s character, and I went through about half of them. After that, I uploaded them all into Mpeg Streamline and edited the clips I wanted to use. Then I had to find a way to edit and reorder the video because for some reason nothing I numbered came up in the program correctly. I found the theme song on YouTube and edited it to loop with the video on audacity. After about 6 hours, I was finally done. Here is my finished project:
