What I Did:
- I’m editing the mp3 file of the song on the video editor. At this point, I’m just adding in some transitions to make it sound smoother.
- I finished writing some of the saved blog posts I had in my drafts section to catch up with updating my professor on what I’ve been working on since last time I had a different story pitched which was Oh! The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss (see my previous blog post detailing some of my initial concerns).
Why I Did It:
The short story is actually really cute (even though it doesn’t compare with a Dr. Seuss classic) and this is the first time I feel excited about a project for a class. I’ve never made an original video (even the song is original!) for a class before and I’ve always wanted to even though I didn’t know where to start initially. I had a lot of self-doubt earlier while working on this project because I just couldn’t grasp what I wanted until I made the decision to change my story after a lot of hard thinking. I’m happy with the decision I made and I want to make sure I mention that in my reflection memo. It has honestly been one of the most stressful semesters I’ve ever experienced. Sometimes I believe that college has sucked out a lot of my creativity that I had when I was a freshmen, but it’s moments like these that make me want to challenge myself. I think that’s the big “takeaway” from this project overall.
