Well to start this blog off, It would be a good idea to tell you what my project is about. My partner Lilly and I are doing our 2nd quarter project on Styrofoam containers, take out containers, you know that kind of things. So there are 2 organizations, "Zero Waste" and "Kauai Surfrider Foundation" which first teamed up in 2009 to remove the use of plastic bags in shopping markets and stores and replace them with paper bags and/or reusable bags. These 2 foundations are teaming up again, but this time, for the removal of Styrofoam containers in restaurants and replacing them with biodegradable and compostable alternatives.
We have gotten 3 interviews, of Pat Gegen, Allison Fraley, and Gordon LaBedz and transcribed them both, a while back. I thought Allison's interview came out really nice, however Gordon's and Pat's I thought we could improve on. There was a shadow on Pat's face and the background of Gordon's were in focus. We got our scripts revised and got it approved from Mr.Matsunaga.
Right now we are working on editing. Because Lilly did the Voice Overs last quarter, It was my turn to do it this quarter. So today, I recorded the voice overs. I admit, I don't really speak clear and I don't really sound enthusiastic, so Lilly gave me some helpful tips. I'm not sure how well I did, but I hope I sounded okay, as VO are pretty important, and a big part in the grading rubric. One thing we really need more is B-roll. At the moment we don't really have much good b-roll so I would like to get more of that, so I took a camera and a tripod home and I hope I can get some decent shots over the weekend.
Overall, with our projects due on Tuesday, and our radios due on the same week, it's a stressful time. But, it's possible, and I believe with hard effort, and good teamwork, we can turn this in on time, and do a good, maybe even a great job. Goodbye to you all.......
