For the final project of my Foundation of New Media class my group and I created a promotional video to define the English for New Media major. This video was an attempt to help future students, parents, and future employers better understand this new major at Dakota State University. Vanessa, Bry, and I worked over the span of about three weeks to interview, film, and produce this video.
We decided that the best possible way to promote a media degree was with media, and our use of media went beyond that. Because we were not able to meet with one another often, due to hectic work and school schedules, we relied heavily on programs such as Dropbox and Facebook. During the time we worked on the project Vanessa filmed fellow peers of the degree as well as the English faculty. Bry and I worked mostly off camera, recording social media sites with Camtasia Studio. We edited the video clips with Windows Movie Maker 2.6, and with constant freezing we were required to save constantly. However, the final result was a rewarding 3:45 minute video.
