I really enjoyed creating this project. My partner, Jacob, and I documented an event called Pan Area Carnival. It’s a campus-wide carnival that all the Governors, including myself, put on with the help of RSA. We took footage on three different days and interviewed three people. One of them was the Governor of East area, another was apart of the Danieley Area Council, and the other was the Vice President of RSA, who helped oversee the planning process of this event. Surprisingly the interviews were not difficult to film. Jacob and I had a pretty firm grasp as to how to work the camera. The hardest part of interviewing was getting a good soundbite from people. A couple times we had to ask the interviewee to restate what they had just said because they would say ‘um’ a lot or it their statement was not concise enough. Other than that, it wasn’t too bad.
While this project certainly took up a lot of time, I really enjoyed documenting something that is so personal to me. Hopefully it can be used next year for an RSA/Area Council promo video to show new students what sort of events the organizations plan.
