So I have to turn in two of my video projects I’ve been working on this year. One is a project I have been working on all semester about Education Reform in Indianapolis that I’ll post later when it is officially finished! That one was really fun to do for my Converged Journalism class because I had to go out and film interviews and try to get footage to cover the whole story. For that class, we also have to post our final video and project to an online blog.
For Media Literacy, me and two other people in a group had to make a Public Service announcement. For this, we decided to make a PSA raising awareness of product placement. Me and Jordan, one of my partners and the person who edited the video, are terrible actors but it is still funny to watch! Our other partner Rotnei did the voice over at the end of the video.
After this semester, I’ve had to make various video and multimedia assignments for classes and I’ve actually come to learn that I enjoy doing film. Maybe I’ll even have a career where I’ll have to do it in the future! I’m glad I learned how to do multimedia work now while I’m young instead of having to learn it in the future when things change and become more confusing!
There are only three more days of classes left this semester and the feeling is bittersweet. I’m happy because this means I won’t have to do homework for a while but it also hit me that it means that I’m that much closer to graduating! I’m just hoping the rest of college doesn’t go by as fast!
I am looking forward to being able to go home. I might be going home this weekend to get a haircut and do laundry but I might just wait it out since I have a couple finals the following week.
Today I had one of my finals in Spanish. After we took our normal weekly quiz, we had to have a dialog with our professor in spanish for eight minutes. We did it in pairs which took the pressure off of each of us and it was actually enjoyable. We got to talk about ourselves and respond to random questions the professor had for us. So now I can officially say I am done with Spanish….. At least for this semester anyway.
Another big project I’m working on is a Public Service Announcement my group had to make for Media Literacy class. We have to inform viewers on a media literacy issue and my group chose product placement. Filming the video was really fun and I’ll be sure to post it on my blog once we’re done editing!
Until then, here’s a video of my personal favorite PSA. It’s probably because it makes me hungry!
