Hey did anyone know there’s only one week left of classes? I sure didn’t.
When I think about the quantity of ‘stuff’ I have to do between now and then, I start to panic a little bit, so I’m just trying to take it assignment by assignment.
As for how Project III is going, all of the ideas are there but it isn’t actually created yet. I originally wanted the video to be a compilation of interviews of my family members about my eye, but after interviewing them I felt like leaving just that as the primary content would be way too boring. So instead, I want to focus on memory. How I remember the experience is very different from how my family does, or even how I expected them to.
As I was pondering this, I stumbled upon a TED talk about the difference between our experiences and our memory, and it brought up some very interesting points. I’ve decided to use this as my inspiration for Project III. I’m still going to make a video that includes pieces of the interviews, but it will now also include pieces of the TED talks to highlight the contrast between what we remember and what actually happens.
Cross your fingers for me that this actually works out (please please please)
