Hey guys! This week’s blog topic is on our progress with our summer projects. Mr.M decided to change things up a bit this year. The news story we worked on in the summer camp will now be our first quarter project. Taylor N. and I managed to make a rough cut during the summer, but it still needs quite a bit of work. The due date has also been pushed up to September 16. I think we are not exactly on schedule, we are more halfway there. We still need to film more b-roll, film more interviews, and edit our video along with re-recording voiceovers.
One reason I feel we are a bit behind is because we still need to film a lot of b-roll. Most of our b-roll is from Puka Dogs, but since Carter and Erik are doing their story on Puka Dogs, the Hiki No editors said that we shouldn't use their interviews. Our b-roll from Puka dogs is the only b-roll we have because during the summer camp our time was very limited. Also, we need to balance out the 2 sides to make it fair, and I’m not sure if these big businesses will let us film them. So I am a little nervous about that part. We plan on hopefully filming this next week. We would have filmed sooner it’s just that Taylor N. and I both signed up to do the Inside Scoops early. Her’s were due last week and mine were due on Thursday.
Another thing that is really important that we get is, interviews. We do have some interviews, but they lean more towards the small local businesses, we have to balance them out. So, we need to interview customers of the big chain businesses such as, Costco, Walmart, and more. I’m not that worried about that because many people on the island are consumers of these big businesses. I really hope we will have enough time to film a few more interviews on local businesses as well. Taylor N. and I also plan on hopefully filming next week if not the week after that.
The last reason why I feel we are a little behind is because we still need to edit the video, after we do all of that and we need to re-record some voiceovers. It’s really nerve wracking because we only have 3 weeks left till we turn in our second rough cut. Before we can even start editing, we need to get all filming done. Also, we have to re-record one of our voiceovers because you can hear background noise. I’m not that worried about that because voiceovers aren’t very time consuming, mostly editing because that is the last step and it takes a while. We plan on editing and re-recording voiceovers probably the last or second to last week till we have to turn in a rough cut.
As you can see, we are pretty behind with our first quarter project. So we really have to bust our butts these next few weeks. We have to film more b-roll, film more interviews to balance it out, and edit and re-record voiceovers. Anyways I hope you enjoyed this week’s blog.
