During the duration of our multimedia project 1 we had some problems. The story we orignially wanted to do was the one about Jada Utt getting bit by a dog but it was difficult to get the interview setup and the mother to follow through on her appointments with us. I really wanted to do that story but I like the one we ended up doing.
The second story was about the smoking ban at WVU. Since there are a lot of students who smoke it seemed to be something students would be interested in. I really enjoyed going to the meeting about getting it banned and watching the broadcast students film.
I learned a lot that day. Since I am print it is probably a good way to broaden my horizons. I make amateur dirt bike racing films myself they aren’t professional or anything but I got 98 views on my last one. So in conclusion I thought it was a good learning experience for me to get to work with photos, film and text all at the same time.
