Hey everyone! I am currently in the ballroom at Rosen Plaza. That's right! Today's the day where we spend sixteen hours creating a video, depending on what category you are in...this is sweet sixteen. The two categories are film, and brodcast. Film creates a short 5 minute movie where they are given a prompt, and need to use the prop they were given and the line in their movie. Brodcast, however, is when you create a whole 10 minute video at the most, consisting of smaller videos, all relating to the prompt given. I'm in the brodcast team with Ben Brady and Lindsey. Bright and Early, Leanna, for Brodcast and Brandon, for film, went with Mr. M to find out what the topics/prompts were. The rest of the class met an hour later at this restaurant in the hotel. The prompt for the brodcast team, was "International Drive" and the prompt for film was "The Big Squeeze". We ate breakfast and sat in our groups to talk about our ideas. At first, I had no idea what "International Drive" meant, so I was pretty worried. We later found out that it was a highway, and a tourist strip that was over 11 miles long and consisted of 6 attractions and lots of shops and restaurants. Our group came up with the idea of doing the history of I-Drive, which is the International Drive's nickname. But the problem was, we had no idea who to interview! We reasearched, and asked around in shops, but no one was willing to do an interview with us! Some of them didn't know anything about the International Drive, some people weren't there, and others just weren't allowed to do an interview with us because they're boss didn't approve. After a while of searching, we decided to compromise, and instead of making it a news story, we made it an informative video, of course with permission. We had some b-roll, and gave the SD card with it on it to Ben so he could start editing while Me and Lindsey got more B-roll. After time passed, we finally collected enough b-roll, and re-recorded standups and Voice Overs. We finally got to editing, and it was really close to 6 pm, when we had to export it to Leanna so she can start editing the final product. After some time of editing, the video was complete. It was only 52 seconds, which was really short, but there wasn't anything we could do to make it longer. Right now, the main editors are editing the final product, and adding in standups and such. That's it for today. Bye
