Project Details

Date: November 2016 - December 2016

Category: Storytelling, Content Creation

Technology: Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audacity

Duty: Cameraman, Video Editor, Musician


The end goal was to create a 2 - 4 minute piece of storytelling that is both compelling and appropriate to the chosen theme. The piece should include narration which accompanies either a slideshow, a video, or a combination of both. Creativity is essential in this piece and mixing audial cues and visual cues must be used to create a piece of storytelling that reaches out to the viewer.

Process / Skills Learned

During the course of this short but memorable project I learned how to be my own cameraman and combine both audio and video in a way that strengthens an existing story. Using different colour filters during certain sections was a subtle effect to boost the intended mood. I learned to use audacity for audio editing and Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects for video editing and merging the audio as well. I learned that storytelling is a skill best improved through experience itself.
