I spoke with my former Film teacher and decided to work with the software Final Cut Pro (luckily my brother has it on his computer, so I won’t need to purchase it) and use an HDCam or Canon cameras as my device for recording video. I borrowed the hardware from the MLB media center and found it was relatively easy to use.
I haven’t been able to start editing via Final Cut Pro but I am guessing that will require a lot of guidance from my brother who has used it to edit videos in the past. I have worked with iMovie before but Final Cut Pro is much better quality, so I think the challenge will be worth the result.
As far as my storyboard, I realized I really only have 3 different main shots that will be contributing to my film, the first being longtakes of Ross culture via the Winter Garden, cafe, 2nd floor, etc. The second shot will mainly consist of interviews with students or educators across a table view in the study rooms in Ross. Finally, the last take will mainly consist of classroom shots with audio coming from interviews.
I am excited to begin the recording process, and welcome any feedback regarding my storyboard or device/software use!
