Doozy. This week is a doozy. But it’s also amazing, because I am focusing on many of my passions: writing, communicating, and music.
Let me explain. So, to be honest, the forefront of my mind consists of my a cappella group’s concert this Friday. But my remediation is a close 2nd. I’m extremely excited about creating my documentary about Ross students – the challenges they face, stigmas they must endear, and wonderful people they meet.
After meeting with Naomi today I have realized that I must identify the strong moments within my current film, elaborate on those, and then form my direction and story arc that effectively impacts my audience. It’s challenging to understand the message I want to convey through my documentary, but also exciting. I am looking forward to interviewing more students and faculty later this week, and further understanding the story and message within my documentary. It’s been extremely interesting and motivating to further understand my feelings and thoughts regarding this documentary through filming and talking with students.
The goals that I have set for myself are challenging but necessary to complete a product that sends a powerful message. I need more interviews that drive students to truly think about how they feel about their Ross experience. I need to identify the strong moments within my piece and use those to develop my story arc. And I need to thoroughly edit the technical pieces of my footage so that they enhance my story rather than detract from it.
That being said, this photo accurately sums up how I feel about this week and life in general.
