Update of the Week

Phew! We are getting down to the last sprint of the semester. However, this week has been extremely productive, so I think my group is in very good shape.

First of all – I finished the trailer! Whoo! I think it looks pretty good. We decided to cut out the voice over, because I couldn’t figure out how to get my audio to blend well with his – there is too much noise on his, and not enough on mine. I never thought I would say this, but gosh darn you digital media lab and all your fancy equipment! :) Quite frankly, it is probably for the best. Since our slogan is “In His Own Words” a narrator seems a little out of place. Also, I’m not the most riveting speaker anyway; James Farmer catches everyone’s attention more effectively than I can. Anyway, feel free to watch the video (I’ve embedded it below) and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear any comments or suggestions you may have!

 Next, I created an audio file for lecture ten and I think Kelsey is working on getting it uploaded to the Website. I wasn’t entire sure how to do just audio in Premiere, but it turned out to be wonderfully easy, and we got a high quality .mp3 out of it! I am quite pleased.

Finally, I took group pictures of our group for the website, and took some more pictures of the James Farmer statue in front of Trinkle. Not only are they posted online, but I made all of the statue photos creative commons licence, so hopefully someone will get to use them for an awesome project in the future.

    Caitlin, I cannot get over how excellent the trailer is. You have really worked so hard with all the video and stripping audio and whatnot, (and being completely patient with all of us lesser qualified people like me). I am so happy with our project!
