I did a lot for this class.

I coordinated getting all the video equipment, set up editing sessions in my office, went to every shooting session – there were 4, and transported equipment there and back to both of them.

I recorded sound, edited the sound and video, interviewed people, used the video camera, coordinated the site, coordinated with the clients. There is probably more in there that I am missing.

Not having the correct access to the equipment is huge. We can’t have a production class without the equipment to produce. Our team worked well together and we pulled together to get things done.

I’m not sure I answered your questions, but that is what I had to say.



Project Report Week 8

—what were your specific contributions to your project team this week?

I took the logo documents that we had and sent them to the client. I talked with the client on the phone about the filming, and tried to set up a future date to interview a Daughter of Charity that works with St. Joe. I coordinated the time to tape at the UBS Location. I helped look at the tape. I helped edit the footage and classify it.

I contact the DePaul CDM Cage and ordered the video equipment, I picked up the Equipment from the cage and I am piloting people to the location today.
—What’s going well?

Filming seems to be moving along. Design manual is coming together.
—What’s not going so well?

The client has cold feet about our logo now. We have been put off until the 20th. I don’t think this is that bad, worse case we use the old logo and just go from there.

—What are your goals for next week?

Log the tape we get. Do rough cut. Make any logo changes, finish design manual.
—What resources or help do you need from your project team, class, or instructor?

We need a place to edit.

—what were your specific contributions to your project team this week?

I changed the front facing St. Joe logo I created. Added a flower and changed the text.

I took the logo documents that we had and sent them to the client. I talked with the client on the phone about the filming, and tried to set up a future date to interview a Daughter of Charity that works with St. Joe. I coordinated the time to tape at the San Miguel Location.

I contact the DePaul CDM Cage and ordered the video equipment, I picked up the Equipment from the cage and I am piloting people to the location today.

I logged the video tape that we took last week, and stored it in a final cut pro file.

I also logged the tape for the other team and taught a tiny bit of FCP to them last class.
—What’s going well?

Filming seems to be moving along. We will have a couple of hours worth of footage after today.
—What’s not going so well?

The client has cold feet about our logo now. We have been put off until the 20th. I don’t think this is that bad, worse case we use the old logo and just go from there.

—What are your goals for next week?

Log the tape we get. Schedule a viewing. Possibly film Sr. Marsha. Maybe sit down with the instructor, a few key people on our team and the client with sticky buns and coffee to see if we can get feedback prior to or after the board meeting.
—What resources or help do you need from your project team, class, or instructor?

We need a lab with final cut pro, comfy seats,  and a projector to do a group filming of raw footage and talk about what goes and stays for the final video.

I would love to borrow a mini dv deck of some kind so I don’t have to schedule logging the tape in the labs over the weekend.

— What’s going well?

I was able to get in touch with Lisa Sullivan and schedule the filming at the Humboldt Park location. We filmed yesterday. We were able to interview the executive director, two volunteers and three participants in the program. We were able to capture several minutes of B roll.
— What’s not going so well? We need to get the next filming scheduled and the St. Joe services people aren’t really responsive. We need to get in to film but time is running out.
— What are your goals for next week?

Try to film at the Austin location. Log our current tape. Submit logos to the client, and possibly start on design manual.
— What resources or help do you need from your project team, class, or instructor?

We need to streamline our logo choices and then move forward with first edsits before submitting to the client. We need to work together to get our film crew together and scheduled.

— What’s going well?

We were all able to travel to the site to do a visit. The group seems invigorated, and willing to work.

— What’s not going so well?

Our teams are confused. People signed up that aren’t communicating, etc. Sometimes the e-mails to the client go unanswered or only partly answered.
— What are your goals for next week?

Communicate the filming schedule with the St. Joe people. Work on logos, and get the equipment for the recording session.
— What resources or help do you need from your project team, class, or instructor?

None.
