The Video. How was it made?

At the beginning the idea of making a video for the project seemed easy, but as we started working we found out that it was actually challenging. At first we thought of doing it with Final Cut (Click for free trial) and After Effects (Free trial), but we decided to change it because we didn’t have that much time to work on it. We ended up using Prezi, but since it was our first time using it, the process was kind of hard. 

To make the video easier to understand we needed to select and write the appropriate information and then find a way of making it look attractive, and when you don’t understand a software completely that truly becomes a challenge. Even though we managed to handle it, making the video was really frustrating and we spent hours sitting at the university just working on it. 

When we were writing the information we also faced another problem that was that if you’re planning to use a voiceover you must make sure that the written information corresponds to what you’re saying while remaining clear, short and understandable. It is also hard to make the sound and the video match all the time and if this is not well done the quality immediately decreases, which I can’t stand at all. I think that choosing the right colours and displays to make the video eye-catching but still appropriate for the organisation is really important, and mixing this with clear content is hard as well because it is common to try to add a lot of information, which would make the whole thing messy and confusing for our audience.

I feel that even though the process of making the video was challenging (and incredibly tiring), it was also interesting and useful in a way, because now I know how to use Prezi, which will be handy for other projects in the future!
