Our group members were Garrett Smith, Drew Geckler, Richard Woo and Payam Noori. Over the course of a few weeks, we were tasked with creating a commercial that showcased the class (Help Desk). For the most part there wasn’t a real guideline for us to follow, rather we created the script ourselves which we later followed to make an original video. There were a few difficulties with this. One being that we had to decide what and how we were going to do something before we actually did it. This forced us to really think about what we were saying and how we were going to end up with a good project. Another issue was the technology aspect part of it. Since we all decided to try and split the work as evenly as possible, this meant that everyone had to use their own version of Adobe Premiere Pro 2017/18, phone etc, which caused a few compatibility issues in the future.
Drew was mainly focused on editing the footage together into something that resembles a commercial. Garrett recorded all of the video and helped supervise the editing. Payam and Richard were tasked with narrating the end video. If we were to do the same thing again, we would try and get more footage to work with and have a more descriptive script to narrate. If this were assigned to future students, we would recommend that the students make sure everything they write on the script is easily achievable and that they start filming as soon as possible. Overall this project helped us improve our planning skills and video editing/filming techniques.
