My favorite project was probably the second web story or the creative devices project near the beginning of the semester.
I liked the second web story because it tied everything we’ve learned this semester (interviewing, photography, audio, html) into one project. It was fun implementing all those things into one story and having them work together. I enjoyed the creative devices assignment because it allowed me to get, for lack of a better term, creative with picture-taking. I liked going to different places, especially just in nature, and seeing what I could do to make a picture interesting.
I think I can use most of the skills I’ve learned in this class for the future, especially the audio and photography. Writing online is also something I have done in the past and will probably be doing in the future, so the last two projects helped with that.
The group SoundSlides project was also beneficial because it gave us the opportunity to work with someone else, which is probably what we’ll be doing after school. It was good to see a project from another perspective and get the experience of working with a partner.
I also thought it was good to further learn the importance of getting work done on time and in a professional fashion, because that’s how the “real world” is. If you turn in something late or don’t include something that you were asked to, you have consequences.
I’d like to stay in the realm of media for my career, at least for now. This class was definitely pertinent to being involved in the media and prepared me for anything I will do in the future. This class kind of reassured me that I enjoy media-related activities, especially when they involve something I’m interested in.
Some video skills would have been nice to learn but I know that’s offered in the subsequent course.
