Our big project for the next few weeks is to create a mini documentary about someone in our community. It also has to be someone I don’t really know, which makes this a million times harder. Throughout the week, I’ve been trying to figure out who I’m going to interview. I honestly think think this will be the hardest part of this assignment. It’s daunting to have to interview someone I barely know and I feel like it will be awkward, especially because aside from my classmates, I don’t see other people on campus very much. I’ve narrowed it down to a few people that I could maybe interview. I already know them, but we’re not close friends or anything and I know if I pick a “stranger” I’m going to have a hard time conducting the interview and I’ll just make it awkward.
I think once I choose someone to interview and get that out of the way, the rest of the project will be fairly easy. Although I’m not very skilled in video editing, it’s something I can figure out on my own. I plan to use my iPhone to record and I’ll edit the video on my iPad. I don’t really care for iMovie, so I’m going to use an app called Splice that I’ve used in the past and I also used it on another video assignment for this class. I hope that as I continue to figure out a plan, this project will become less daunting and maybe be a fun experience.
