The beginning of the end..

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.

One thought on “The beginning of the end..

  1. I like the audio idea. During audio week we heard how sound can create a sense of space and place, and there is a travel section on soundboard.com. There may be a way to make something work with sound. But there are a lot of other possibilities. You could use the Mozilla X-ray Goggles to write yourself into local news around the world. You could also incorporate Google Maps into the story. Those are just suggestions though. Do what works for your story.
