On my last blog post, I talked about how I was starting a JUULing project with Erin and Andrew. Fast forward a month, and currently we have almost all of our footage and are in the editing stage. Last week, we put out a trailer for our project, which I have put down below. It has received close to 200 views, which is pretty amazing. I’m excited to finish this project and share it with the world. Editing has been taking some time, but I’m fine with that because I truly want to make this project the best it can be. The finished video should be coming out sometime in April.
For my second project, I am working on a JUULing project with Erin and Andrew. To begin, we conducted research about JUULing, and watched news packages on the topic for inspiration. In addition, we made a schedule to keep track of our work. After collecting information, we began writing questions for our interviews. For this project, we wanted to interview a student who JUULs, a JUUL dealer, a principal, and a health official. Our first interview was with the student who JUULs. The student was very cooperative and the interview went well. The next interview we wanted to do was with our health professional. Luckily for us, LHWHS had a guest speaker come to talk to the freshman on February 22nd about JUULing. The guest speaker was Mrs. Seymour, who is a heart nurse. We recorded segments of her presentation to use in our video. The next day, we interviewed her as well and she allowed us to get BRoll of some of her Juul products. Our third interview was with the freshman principal, Mr. Tarpey, whose interview also went well. What we still have to do is interview a JUUL dealer, get more BRoll, and edit all of our clips. Our project has gone very well so far and I am looking forward to keep working on it.
Hello! Welcome to my blog. This is my first blogpost. I am just wrapping up my first couple of weeks as a Broadcast Tech II student. I have spent the past few weeks learning how to operate the cameras and learning how to use Final Cut Pro X. The cameras we are using have many new features that I had to learn, such as focus, color balance, and zoom. I shot some practice footage and added the footage to Final Cut Pro to edit it. Final Cut Pro X is a software made by Apple for video editing. I learned how to use features such as transitions, text, and audio balancing. It was very interesting and I look forward to doing more work with the cameras and Final Cut Pro.
