This project was definitely a challenge, as it was something that I had never done anything like before. I worked with my partner Brooke who was super helpful and insightful during the process of production. We decided to center our Documentary around music teachers and programs in Silicon Valley, which was something very sentimental and personal to Brooke as well, because she was talented in many instruments and we interviewed some of her former teachers. The process to film and record the audio was very tedious and where we came across most of our problems. Having to deal with audio recorders, microphones, adding onto the stresses of remembering extra camera batteries and other equipment was a big endeavor for Junior year but it was well worth it.
Here are some progress shots:
The result of our Documentary film turned out better than I imagined and I feel that the importance of this topic was delivered in a perfect way.
