This was my last week of the internship. This last week I was working hard on editing a video of a soccer player’s experience of coming back from an ACL injury. With doing this video, it allowed me to gain a better understanding of the skills and techniques that go into making a professional video. I also learned terms, such as broll and aroll that I had never heard before. I also was trying to learn what it takes to make a good video journalism story. I will say that there is a lot more that goes into creating a video than I thought. In order to get the interview just right, we (the group) had to shoot and reshoot the interview about 6 times. This is because of learning the mistakes that we would make with the angles, lighting and audio. Also, the editing process can be very tedious. Although, once the video is complete, you’re able to see the finished project it can be well worth the time. I enjoyed working on this video and found it to be a good outlet, especially during finals.
Here is the video. Check it out:
