The first reason that Herenui and I are ahead of schedule is because we shot all our interviews. We filmed a total of 4 interviews at Lanakila Kitchen. We shot interviews with Carol Horner, Eirn Chong Tim, Jondy Horner, and Kana'e Soto. We interviewed Carol Horner who is the project manager. She gave us some good sound bytes as planned that explained what Lanakila Kitchen is, about their training program, and about Lanakila Pacific. We also interviewed Eirn Chong Tim who is the lead cook and lead trainer, and told us about Lanakila Pacific. Another interviewee was Jondy Horner, the purchasing manager. She told us about how much she loves helping the trainees build independence. The last person we interviewed was our central character, Kana'e Soto. Kana'e Soto was a former trainee of the training program who now has a real job as the cashier of Lanakila Kitchen. So one reason that we are ahead of schedule is because we filmed all of our interviews, as our guidelines say it should.
Another reason that Herenui and I are ahead is because we already finished transcribing. According to the markers in our planner and on the CKTV website, transcribing should be done by November 17th. But it's the 7th today and we're already done transcribing all of our interviews. In my opinion, transcribing is the easiest part in creating a news story because it's simple, easy, and quick to do! I like to transcribe the night of the interview was shot or the next day because then you can start working on the script earlier!
Speaking of scripts, that's the third reason why we are ahead. Herenui and I are starting to work on our scripts since we finished transcribing early. Right now, we are color-coding/highlighting sound bytes to fit each individual point. After we've highlighted that from all the transcripts, we will put them into a script outline table like last quarter. Hopefully, we will get this done quickly so we can submit our first draft of our script to Mr. M and continue to be ahead of the game.
To sum it all up, Herenui and I are ahead of schedule because we shot all of our interviews, transcribed them all, and are starting on our scripts. We are currently ahead, and I want to keep it that way. I can proudly say that Herenui and I are living up to our word when we said that we would improve by staying on track. That's it for my blog! Thanks for reading! Bye!
