The video-making process has generally gone unhindered during our process. While it took some time trying to decide upon a digital medium, my group finally settled on Prezi. While we strongly considered After Effects or Final Cut Pro, we felt that it was ultimately more efficient to use a pre-defined framework on which to structure our ideas. Prezi makes it easy to make a PowerPoint’s worth of information look good as efficiently as possible. Since we are essentially making a video presentation, this made the most sense to us.
Videos are nothing new to me, having grown up, surrounded by the famously competitive filmmaking talents in Los Angeles. I got started on the storyboard immediately. In order to create a cohesive video, a logical series of events is absolutely necessary. From that point, I constructed the framework of the script. My fellow team members are currently putting together a nice Prezi presentation (almost finished!), and I will soon record the corresponding voice-over.
I think that while it took us some time to figure out how many resources were truly needed to dedicate to the creation of our video presentation, following our decision, we had a clear direction. After fiddling with the final script, we’re ready to go!
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you guys on Project Communities! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and continued dedication! :)
