I am TRYING to move forward with my Remediation Project. First, this writing class pushed my comfort levels on my writing style. I am very “type A” when it comes to writing, where I just want to state an argument or create a thesis and go from there with a research paper. But this class has created a greater awareness of “outside the box thinking” for me. I have been able to turn an argumentative essay into a sports blog post. However, now I need to turn my sports blog post into a interview documentary… I have accomplished creating a proposal and time board for this project about how I “ideally” envision my project.
Now the hard part… For those who are “technologically challenged” like myself, this project is not ideal. Here are a list of things that I am going to attempt to use for my project:
1) iMovie. One of my peers has shown me how “easy” it is to use iMovie. I look forward to using this process because I will be able to add this additional skill to my portfolio. I would love to be familiar with this process because I know in the line of work that I would like to go into, this would be a great skill set to offer with the new changes of social media/online blogging within the communication field.
1a) Through testing out iMovie, it seems like it will provide me with plenty of assistance to get the job done. I know it will be crucial to have the ability of fading from one screen to another in my project. This will be based on how I want to incorporate my interviewers to my example skits, but through playing around with iMovie, I think it will do a sufficient job.
2) If my “technologically challenged” self does have problems with using iMovie (god bless), then I know I can contact Michigan’s ISS for additional support. They provide an email and number in which they can be contacted on. So I feel comfortable that if I do have issues, I will be able to contact them for additional help. I plan on using my iPhone 6 as recording my interviews. The quality of the camera is very high def. Also, for the skits that will include being in the water, I will be using my teammates GoPro for some in the water action shots. I look forward to including that within my interview documentary.
