One of the things I'd like to improve on is having a better production value. Production value is the quality of your whole video; your shots, it's composition, audio, all of it. In me and Kirra's first quarter project on Moses Hamilton, we filmed the b-roll shots in sequences, but we had some issues. In our interviews, we made the mistake of doing it in front of a plain wall. Also, the interviewee was pretty close to the wall, and it wasn't compressed at all. For Moses' interview, he was too off to the side, and it wasn't following the rule of third's interview format well. For this upcoming second quarter, I want to have a better production value by checking that all of the shots are in focus, and checking the backgrounds of the interviews.
Another thing I'd like to improve on is to try to avoid procrastination. Yes, we have all been sucked into the the tempting process of procrastinating, putting things off until the last minute and distracting yourself from important things. I've been especially doing that with my blogs, not doing them until Saturday or Sunday when I had the whole week to do them. I plan to try and stop procrastinating by reminding myself of what is important, and the consequences that can follow if I don't do it now. I can also turn off my phone, so that I won't be distracted by any notifications or something that can tempt me into not doing what I'm supposed to be doing. Another thing I'd like to improve on is to not procrastinate this quarter, and in the future too.
The third thing I'd like to improve on this quarter is about our Inside Scoop Radios. On me and Kirra's last Inside Scoop, we cut it a bit close, turning it in on Thursday. I'd like to turn it in before that, just in case we need to re-record or make any huge revisions. Also, our duration of our scoops were overtime, one of them at 2:07. For this quarter, I'd like to try and work on getting it as close to 2 minutes as possible. This goal is achievable by getting an early head start on our radios and following the 4 week Inside Scoop track that we set up.
In conclusion, a few goals I have for this quarter is to have better production value, avoid procrastination, and make our Inside Scoop radios the best it can be. Well, that is it for this week's constructed response! Let's make this second quarter great! Thanks for reading! Bye!
