I shot the two interviews that I spoke about last week and they were fun. The people I have interviewed want to see the end progress but I remind them we are still working on it. I am thinking of different ways to incorporate their social media into their respective parts.
I like the fact that more people are getting back to my interview request now. I’ve set up two in the same week. This project has also made me better my camera techniques which is great. We are still working well as a group and are almost ready to start doing the heavy editing.
Communication is still going well with our group. Though we have not been able to meet up as much, we are still on the same page overall. I’ve been shooting more footage and have been tempted to start the edits but I know that I couldn’t tell the story until we get more of the footage shot.
I feel like the group is working well together. We are all doing our parts and it feels like things are flowing better because of it. I want to get more footage shot and with my schedule, it makes it hard to do so. What I am working on is bring my camera wherever I go in the city, just in case I see some good places to shoot that will help the video.
I am finding that the more interviews that I shoot the more the narrative of our video is changing. People’s outlooks on the city vary on the places they live and how it personally impacts them. I am liking the work through and might expand on it after the class is over.
Bad news came in when I was told one of our interview subjects would not do the video, with no reason given. Now we have a dilemma and have to find a quick replacement. This was very disheartening, seeing as though we were about to film that spot of video this week. Lesson is that you can’t keep your eggs in one basket.
A better week for our group. We were able to get more communication going and we have our selected artist for our video and have just set up the date to shoot their respective interviews.
