First of all, I am giving myself a Pass for my overall contribution in this CMP project.
As a content producer, I think I did not really do well. I am giving myself just a pass because I think I only did things that I am told to do, such as doing research. For our initial idea, our group (Maddie, Mel and Henrietta) were thinking about doing a few version of trailer that uses Australia politician. I then look at ABC’s website to try to search for suitable footage that can be used. During the progress of searching for video, I guess all of my group mates and I faced the same problem that is downloading the video to edit. I then look for a solution, which is looking for suitable file converter. But before the first consultation with David, I was still not sure where I am, and what I should be doing. After the first consultation, my mind is even clearer; I knew what I need to do for my trailer that is setting “Asian’s style gangster” as my genre. After a bit of style research, I started to try to see what I can do in Final Cut.
Right before our first presentation, our group decided to change our initial idea, as we reckon it is not easy to get suitable footage to produce a trailer. We then changed our topic into a totally different thing from our initial idea that is using tumblr to make a site for Frankston City Council, which is all about arts and culture. We have created a space for people to contribute, and also to know more about Frankston. As an International student, at first when Mel mention about Frankston, I did not know where is it, with a bit of research, I then learn a bit about Frankston. Henrietta and I went to Frankston to take some photos to contribute in our website we created for Frankston City Council.
The change of the topic is actually a good idea, because Mel actually stayed in Frankston and she also knew people from the Frankston City Council, therefore we do not have to worry about issue of lack of information and also the copy right issue. As for me, after the changed of topic, I felt that I could not do much stuff, because it is too far to get to Frankston and it’s not convenient. Therefore the only thing that I did is contribute images, and also to represent our group and present during the final presentation in Fed Square.
Therefore to conclude, I think I only deserve a Pass.
