One reason why we are behind on our project is because we changed project ideas. This year, PSA's were due earlier in the third quarter to give us time to work on our fourth quarter projects, before fourth quarter started. Both Kaycee and I got our PSA's done early, and we chose to create a short film for our project. We started working on it before the STN trip, but it really wasn't going anywhere. When we came back from the trip during fourth quarter, we continued working on it but it was a dead end. We realized that there wasn't much of a story to our idea, and so the whole thing didn't make sense. We were already at the point where TIAS' were due. We decided to do away with that idea and start fresh, putting us behind schedule and at a late start.
Another reason why we are behind on our project is because we didn't finish filming. As you all are aware, the filming deadline was last week Friday. Kaycee and I finished recording all of our voiceovers, but only filmed three scenes. Our script is literally 18 pages long, and so we have a LOT more to film! All of our filming is being done in school using media students as actors. I just counted, and there is 14 scenes total. That means we still have 11 more scenes to film! Plus, it'll be difficult since everyone else in the class has their work to do too, so they might be busy. Kaycee and I really have to film each day this week to make the deadline!
The third reason why we are behind is because of pure procrastination. I'll be honest, we did procrastinate. We got our script approved days after we posted it, yet we only started filming last week. We could have been filming the whole other week, but for some reason we didn't. However, we are editing as we go meaning the day that we filmed we edited it right away. This way, we can kind of combine editing and filming time or basically just not get even more behind.
To conclude, we are behind on our fourth quarter project because we changed project ideas giving us a late start, we didn't finish filming, and because we procrastinated. To meet our deadline this Friday of a first draft, Kaycee and I will seriously need to get everything filmed, and avoid procrastination. I believe if we put our mind to it and are determined, we can get it done. Well, that is it for this week's constructed response! Thanks for reading! Bye!
