This week was mainly composed of me brainstorming what I wanted to do with my final project. It’s harder than you’d think figuring out what you want to do because you have to find a way that you can incorporate 4 different media outlets into the project. I thought about telling a story, doing a compilation of all my work (like a blast from the past), and settled with my final thought which was traveling. This is something that I’m very passionate about because I want to travel the world more than anything. It’s one thing to see pictures of all the amazing sights out there, but actually going there is another.
The 4 elements I am going to incorporate into my final project are writing, design, video, and photography as these are the 4 things that I am most comfortable. I plan to do gifs, a slide show of everywhere I want to go on a map, word clouds, etc. But I plan to make a progression of my work. I want to do some lower level work in the beginning and “loop” the elements, gradually getting better as they go. This is how my work was so I feel that my final project should progress just like I did. This is my showcase of work and I wouldn’t be at the level that I am if I didn’t work hard. I will also add audio into my project to tie everything together, but this won’t be my main focus, the other elements will. I am also going to work on making a rough outline this weekend and will post for opinions once I gather my thoughts on what order I am going to do it in.
I’m excited to embark on this project and see what I can create with everything I have learned in this class.
