     Video Interview Response

     When starting my video project at first I was worried about the scheduling of the interview.  I was fortunate enough to have a subject right off the back so that part of the video interview was okay.  The scheduling started to come easy when my subject was mostly free for the week.  Due to the easy scheduling I was able to get the interview done within 4 days.

     My subject that I was interviewing was engaging enough and she had a lot to say.  There were some interesting things she talked about including some of the work  that she does.  One of the most interesting things that she talked about was where she worked.  She’s a teacher assistant who works with kids with special needs.  Before working there however she graduated with a bachelor’s degree at New York City College of Technology the same college that I am in now.  The questions that I made wasn’t too personal so it wasn’t all that difficult to get my subject to open up about who she was and what she did.

      In conclusion, I feel that my final edit could use some more work but I am a little  satisfied with what I submitted.  The audio of the video interview came out sounded better than I expected and the lighting was good enough to see the person I was interviewing.  There were some important details I had to cut out unfortunately but there was still some good details in the video.  Now with the quality of my video I think that it could’ve been better, it wasn’t good in my opinion because of the type of camera I was using.

CDMG 1111 Final Revised Quote and Visual Quote Response

Visual Quote

Starting my visual quote was a hard one at first because I didn’t know what to design.  As the days went on however the process became easier to do.  I didn’t really make any changes to my visual quote it stayed the same I only made some tweaks here and there. One way I altered my design was at first I only put the white letters in a black background but then I decided to add a red strip so the message can become more clearer.

When making my visual quote I was thinking about how I can make a strong message to speak about the changes we needed to make for the world to become a better one without all the wars and inequality.  The source of this quote came from what was going on in the world today and how we have to change to make things better.  So my concept of the design was to give a visual message stating that there needs to be a revolution for a better tomorrow.  No more of the inequality there needs to be a world where everyone, doesn’t matter the color, sexuality or religion can come together.  As well as the wars that are going on around the world and the terrorism that is happening, these acts of violence need to stop as well in order for the world to become a better one.
