Arrival in New York

Interview of SarahJane

Project 1: The Pitch

My partner for this assignment is SarahJane. For the ~60 second video, I intend to illustrate rather than filming it. My rationale for this is simply because I am more comfortable with illustrating when it comes to showing my creative side. Furthermore, I think it’d be more advantageous to illustrate my perception of what Sarah Jane told me rather than to find stock photos/videos online. Sarah Jane had told me that she had moved to NY from Seattle during the Summer, which would be problematic for me to portray via recording since we are currently residing in NYC in the middle of winter.

In terms of the video storyboard, I would like to start off the depiction of Sarah Jane’s move from Seattle to NYC by illustrating her moving a set of boxes into a Truck. She had mentioned small details like her struggle to move the furniture, liking music, and enjoying the pizza from NYC. Therefore, I would also like to incorporate a sequence of frames dedicated to these details in the video. To make her recognizable, I plan to illustrate Sarah Jane with her red hat as that is what I usually see her with in class.

For inspiration, I think I’ll be looking to Domics and Eroldstory, who are Youtubers who are known for their storytime videos via animation. I will be using Procreate to illustrate each frame of the story, and I would like to try to use Adobe Premiere Pro/iMovie to edit each set of frames together.
