Quick Update on Final Project: Not Much Going On

I have yet to get in contact with a reporter from the school newspaper.

Nothing new has come with my final project for the semester.

I'll make strides at contacting him next week so we could get this project done.

There's really not much to blog about today.

Video Project is Done, Now One More Assignment is Left

The video project on the Culinary Arts is officially finished.

We finished the video on Friday.

For the most part, it came out great.

Because the tape was messed up, we could not have as good of a video as we wanted to.

In this video, we had the Chef Instructor talked throughout the entire video while showing the different parts of the the Kitchen.

The class would have liked to see the Chef so they would know who was talking. Also, they would have like to see a still camera in most of the scenes.

We now have one more assignment and we are done with Journalism 121.

We are to pair up with anyone on a student newspaper, used what we've learned, and make either a slideshow, video, or a podcast.

I will be working on the student-faculty debate, which will take place on May 11 at 7 p.m.

Video Project is in Progress/Might be One More Assignment After All

The video project is moving along pretty nicely.

I couldn't be there for the recording because I had to rush to class to take my biology exam, so the group did all of the work.

From what I've heard, the group recorded a good portion of the culinary arts cooking.

We're going to meet up tomorrow with the head chief and interview him and a student. After that, the recording part would be over.

The editing process would be worked on all of this week and next week.

Oh yeah, after this video assignment , we may have one more assignment for the semester.

Not quite sure what that assignment might be yet, but of course, I'll let everyone know when I find out.

New Video Project Could be the Last for the Semester

Our class is now on to a brand new assignment. This could possibly be the last assignment for the semester depending on the timing of each of the groups.

We are now doing a video project.

It's very simple, find a story, and make a video out of it.

This is more of a feature story, so there will be lots of narration.

We could not work with the same people that we worked with on the soundslide project.

It was a bit disappointing to hear that, but at the same time exciting for me because I do love working with new people.

Our group will be documenting the Culinary Arts department.

I'll let you know how things progress as the project goes on.

Soundslides are Somehow Finished

Needless to say, the soundslide are done.

The bad thing is that the final product did not come out the way I wanted.

Once the audio was done, we put the photos together.

When we found out that the photos would not fill up the time slot, we had to add more photos, and that's where everything went downhill.

We ended up redoing the photos in the soundslide and could not even fix the timing of the photos, nor put captions on.

The final product looks good, but could be better.

Pushing to Finish the Soundslides

Are group is looking to finish our soundslide projects tomorrow.

Our audio piece as of now is over five minutes longer.

We need to it down to one or two minutes.

I'm pretty sure we'll finish tomorrow before 3 p.m.

The photos are just about set.

Update on the Slideshow Project

As mentioned on the last blog, Thursdays class was canceled because the journalism department went to a journalism conference in Sacramento.

My group has made good progress.

Two of the members were editing the audio piece.

I edit the photos and placed them in the slideshow.

By Tuesday, our group should be finished before 3:00 p.m.
