To understand what kind of emotional response the software program (Windows Movie Maker) would have on people, in general, I first tried to have a research with my roommate, “Alex”. He had a little of experience, almost none with this program, so I asked him to work on this program for a while, like 10-20 minutes. While he was using this software, I didn’t notice any confusion, or shock from his facial expression, or body language. He liked the preview monitor, because he or any person could watch the progresses of their masterpiece at any time. When I showed how to add music to the movie and get rid of the movie sound in the timeline toolbar, his eyes were blazing with fire, and the first thing he did was: Jumping of the chair, and shouting – “That was awesome”. The only minus was when he felt regret realizing that it’s not possible to load lots of information because the program would be overloaded, and may shut down unexpectedly.
Overall, my roommate experienced lots of different emotions, which were laughter, joy, pleasure, surprise, regret and worry. During the process of him using the Windows Movie Maker, his eyes were often filled with excitement and the joy. His facial expression changed many times due to the bunch of video effects and transitions movie maker has. When he finished working on this program, he said to me that he fell in love with this amazing software.
