Our next assignment involves a major part of your Video Interview Project and a reading from our text book. Your objectives are as follows:
– Record your video interview. Plan to sit with your subject for an hour. It’s alright if you do not end up recording the entire time, provided that you capture the most important moments. If your subject relays critical information, or tells a particularly interesting story, while you’re not recording ask them to repeat what they said while you are recording. Remember to also shoot still images or “b-roll” video that can be used for cuts in editing. We will have at least 90 minutes to edit in class on the 5th, so it is imperative that you come prepared with your footage.
– Read Chapter 9: Adding HTML5 Video and Audio in Digital Media Primer (p. 277-286 in 3rd Edition)
