wonder hope Jessie doesn’t know I have these photos of her…I printed them out in the computer lab while she was in gym class. She is so pretty, but I think she is out of my league:( I have been practicing free throws everyday until 10pm. If I get good enough, maybe I can be a starter on the varsity team Junior year. Then she will notice me. I am saving up for a car so I can drive her to prom…

Razieme is a horse
freak enthusiast, who is incredibly proficient in Movie Maker, can expertly match music to the mood of her horse riding, and seems to be well-liked in her community. While she is incredibly talented, her horse Puzzle, small but mighty, steals the show. Puzzle has been described as having a ‘cute, choppy canter’ (ponieeeees).
Razieme and Puzzle’s most viewed video, by tens of thousands, is ♪♫ Shawty’s Like a Melody; in My Head ♫♪. While there are many videos she has posted of them riding, this one stands out in particular for several reasons. 1) She got new effects for movie maker, allowing her to incorporate layers into the videos. 2) This song is really catchy and it is well coordinated. 3) Instead of letting the song play throughout the video, she cuts it up without transitions, adding to the drama of the video.
This video provides an in-depth look into the early days of Puzzle’s life, before all the video plays. Razieme’s intentional refusal to rotate many of the photos in the slideshow show her advanced understanding of video editing, as well as composition. The speech bubble at the beginning indicating that Puzzle is, in fact, in the trailer is accompanied by an overlapping speech bubble reading ‘your text here.’ There is a presence of the artists, or youtuber’s, ‘hand’ in the video which sets her apart from so many other horse girls.
This last video unconventionally documents the CLPC Halloween Party of 2009. The dramatic, spooky beat of Michael Jackson’s thriller provides a festive backdrop for the costumed horses. The artist’s decision to switch between black and white and color mirrors her interests in both old and new. While she is a well-received internet sensation, her true passion, horses, is as old as time. The inclusion of the pumpkin carving scenes allows the viewer to get to know her and her family outside the context of Puzzle.
While Razieme has many other videos that are emotionally complex while using ground breaking editing skills, these videos provide a great introduction into the world of XXpassion4puzzleXX. Which is your favorite video? Are you a horse girl? Have you ever known a horse as special as Puzzle? Which song would you like to see Puzzle gallop to?
