Video Project

For this assignment, we were to pick a classmate to interview and ask questions based on their bio on OpenLab. I interviewed Amal, a classmate of mine, for this video project. Below were the ten questions that I asked during the interview. From this assignment, I learned how to do an interview and film a video, since I have not done this type of assignment before. Because it was my first time filming an interview video, there were some challenges at the beginning. A challenge that we faced in this interview project was when we started the filming, we didn’t know where or how to start. After many takes, we started to get used to the filming.

This video was originally 4 minutes long, but I edited it down to approximately 3.5 minutes long. To edit the video, I used an app called Quik. This app was pretty convenient, since I was able to edit videos easily. I was able to add a cover page, a credits page, and some background music in the video. After filming this interview video, I feel like it is a good experience for me. Another challenge that we had when filming this video was finding a location to film. At first, we could not decide where to film, either outside or inside CityTech. After few minutes of walking around the building, we decided to film on the floor in the Pearl Building.

From this video project, we were able to get to know one another. While filming, we laughed mostly in the beginning of the video because we were not familiar with each other. The awkwardness between us two was also one challenge in this project. However, we were able to overcome the awkwardness after all the laughing from the start.
