Our topic is self-esteem and insecurities. It is important because this issue is relevant to teens and many youth now days are constantly comparing themselves to others. The goal of our project is to show our audience that they are not alone, and just about everyone has insecurities. Our goal for this project is to create a two to three minute visual statement that gives our audience our personal view about this issue. My team members are Taylor and Isabella. Taylor is our filmmaker and Isabella is our actor.
While working in Final Cut Pro a great editing tool is "command" + "b" : a short cut for blading a scene. In addition, "command" + "z" is a great shortcut to undo actions. It is important to use FCPX libraries, Events, and Projects properly because you want to keep your work organized and separated from other people's work to avoid confusion. Audio levels on different clips can vary as a result of the distance from the camera, volume of speech, and location. To correct the balance of the audio, you're able to drag the audio bars below the film clips up or down for different levels of volume. I believe the video quality is higher than the audio quality because the minor background noise that came from outside the recording studio.
The biggest challenge we faced while working on this project was team member absences. This meant that other team members would be in charge of working on the assignment the absent person is responsible for. Although our team struggled in the beginning we managed to get through to the end and had a great time working with each other. We all pitched in to help each other and no one was a hinderance to the work effort. The most enjoyable part of this project, for me, was filming with classmates i've never worked with before and getting to see the finished project. I agree with the critique results we received. One thing we could have done to make our project more improved was having better sound quality and being a little more creative.
