As my previous blog post shows - we had a lot of fun in the process of making the final video for Project Community.
After 8 weeks of researching, organizing and getting to know each other, the time to summarize our work has came.
The last time to separate tasks as a group, and get things finished. We are only four people, some more active than the others, but that’s how a group works.
We started as creating a storyboard, on which the presentation and handout were built, in the end I had to edit the whole information and come up with a video.
Believe me, editing needs a lot of time and effort, because sometimes the software used is not working properly and you have to start all over again. However, we made it! The video is done.
All in all, I’d like to conclude that the purpose of this course was really interesting, I just hope that next time the support level inside the group will increase, the activity as well.
Looking forward in helping our NGO and, fingers crossed, that we succeed.
Thanks to our lecturers, their tips and advices, we’ve found the right way to our goal. Thank you!
Now that everything is coming to an end, this last few days we use to put all the pieces together, the challenge, solution, and of course the final deliverable assignment of this course, the video. Yap we have to make a five minutes long video contains of:
Introduction of our NGO
Our NGO challenge
The solution based on research with our own argument
And our learning reflection (minor or side content)
This video will be watched together by the student, the teacher, and the NGO on the final presentation day (which is next Wednesday).
Basically I’m not the whose in charge for the video making process, its Stefan and Claire jobs as the tech-stewards but we as a whole team also help them with it. We start to making the video this week by brainstorming the style of the video, is it going be animation, stop motion, over voice video or something else. After arguing for a couple hour we agree to use animation as the general style, but then we decide that this should be one serious, formal animated video rather than a goofy one due to the personality of our client (Carl Peter is a bit serious working type person). The next meeting is the hardest one, we try to brainstorm again, this time to make (rough)story board but we completely stuck. Everyone seems tired because of the piling up assignment with a tight deadline and limited time available. Then Ezter play her role as a good tea manager, she told Stefan and Claire to talks about some technical stuff and the rest of us get a paper and put our ideas on it and later on we combine it together. This method proof to be working because after that we get our main line of the story board.
In the last class thanks to Laura and Mathias we can improved our story board that sums up everything in general. This is or story board
We know that this is still so general but we believes it is enough for the group because for the complete line (frame by frame) Stefan and Claire already have something in their mind, besides if we have to decide it as a group it will take so much time, and time is something we don’t have right now. So while the tech-steward busy with their stuff the rest of the group help them by providing all the content they asked for. We really looking forward for the finalization of the video!
