YAY! Another video is done! I enjoy this upbeat piece on fashion. This was my first time working with a fashion "tips" video, so when I meet up with Olivia, she really put my mind at ease. She had SO much to talk about, from colors to textures, to accessories. Olivia is an active designer and has produced her own fashion show. She is the president of Ladue High School's fashion club. She makes and sells her own clothing brand. This video is a small feature meant for a seasonal feel. Much of the video was taken in Chicago where they are for sure feeling the temperature decrease. My top likes of the video was the risk with a new form of entertainment, storytelling, and I had a lively character to bring a dynamic attitude. Some things to fix: shaky shots were the main issue I had while editing. I also need to keep a look out for my lighting and how I use it better. All in all, I had a great time making it and i hope the watcher has a great time watching it!
It feels great to be back in the swing of things as a junior. As my first project this year I was given the opportunity to work with HEC-TV again for their new show Explore! This show explores what your food goes through to get to your table, all the way from the farm to the market. And it also highlights healthy eating habits. As a part of this show I made 3 short factoids that focused on calories, food, and exercise. The factoids were easy and simple to make and my main goal was to make them conversational and easy to watch as a grade schooler (our audience). I like that HEC-TV is incorporating healthy eating habits into this show because during that stage in life, that is when the main habits are formed.
The fourth video I made this month was a package on an urban chicken farmer. I went with the (wonderful) HEC-TV crew to EarthDance farms and shot my intro and some b-roll. Then, the next day met up with them again at the Tower Grove Farmers Market. I think the video came out really well! I like the differences of shots and my storytelling. However, there were some issues that I NEED to improve on for next month: 1) i would like to be able to go handheld without it being too shaky 2) I feel like I can get more conversational (and not as stiff) with my intro 3) being ahead of it, there were minute details (like exporting correctly) that slipped, and If I want to be professional, those small details, like taking pictures and uploading on time will make or break a career. Overall, I am very proud of what I produced and accomplished in less than a month. If I can be more prepared I know that It can only make me better :) .
