Words of Wisdom

One of our recent projects was "Words of Wisdom". My team (Lilio, Loren, Hershel) and I decided to interview Dave Stewart (my grandfather). Before filming we had to make a production plan that included the subject, what B-roll we would collect, what would be said on the voice-overs and what shots we would film. After completing our production plan I interviewed my grandfather and asked questions about his earlier years. He explained how at a very young age he was offered to go to the beautiful island of Kaua'i and how he couldn't resist because it was his dream to come here. He also explains how important it is to be hard working, as it can really help you achieve your dreams. He tells how through hard work and perseverance you can one day accomplish anything, just like he did. He now has a big family and two very successful businesses.

Our finished product is up above... feel free to watch it, enjoy!

Five Tips For

One of the first projects I've completed in G.T. was a "Five Tips For"... video. In this video my team mates (Bailey and Kora) and I had to demonstrate how to accomplish something in 5 easy to follow steps. Our topic was, "How to make your parents happy." We choose this topic because we thought this could be helpful towards some people and we thought our video topic was different in a way.

A couple things that we could have done better was preventing camera movement by re-filming and making some of the titles larger. Filming and creating this video was not only fun but it was also a great learning experience. I learned how to use composition techniques and voice-overs correctly and how they make a video so much more interesting. I believe my group and I had a great finished product!
