Tools and the like for the Final Project

I got nothing.

But on a serious note, I am thinking of using Movie Maker like I did for the last project. I will of course be taking video of people, and I think I messed around with it enough to be able to handle moving pictures. If not,

I do not have an official storyboard as of yet, but I will list what the project itself should consist of:

  • Camera
  • Movie Maker
  • Questions (10 Max? <--- This is debatable)
  • 5-10 interviewees (with consent)
  • Patience (lots of it)
  • Starbucks (After a job well done)
I don't know yet if I'll use any of the other tools, though Pixton is interesting to use as a intro to the video... 
It is still an idea being thrown around. But hopefully I might get to use it.

That's all for now!

Final Project Ideas (or Idea...)

So, it's finally coming to the wire, so you know what that means: Final Project!

I choose to take the creative route and see where it will take me. There are, however, so many options to choose from, so many topics to explore! But what to choose, what to choose... (cue Jeopardy theme here)

Oh, I know!

Well, one of the things that really mad me... think angry was reading The Circle by Dave Eggers. Aside form the fictitious-ness of it, he did describe some pretty interesting new technology. I myself knew when the technology got too far, but what about my fellow students who have not read the book? How would such technology sound  to them? I think this would be a good time to find out.

So, I plan to interview my fellow peers, and get their stance on maybe having some of the technology from The Circle, or hoping it will never see the light of day.

This at least the general idea. Let's see where this rabbit hole takes me.
