Our topic was mental health, to be more precise, it was addiction, we showed to our audience how is drug consumption and addiction can be harmful and destroys somebody's life, so it's crucial to make the right decision and not get addicted to drugs. This topic is important for us because it's a big problem in the island of kauai that need to be solved and we should spread awareness about it.
Our team members were Lauren, Angela and Tahca, Lauren was the script writer, she made sure that the message was clear. Angela was our editor, Tahca made the soundtrack and I did the visual script and was the main character.
In class we learned how to cut scenes, make magic jump cuts, to have pad before and after a cut or scene so the editor has more to deal with, and also how to layer parts of the video to show what you want for natural sound and what is wanted to be seen. FCPX Libraries are to organize separate things, like if you're making different videos and need to separate them and the cuts you want to use in those videos. Audio levels in different clips can and should vary because when you're filming you can't always control what's going on in the background.
Our biggest challenge was agreeing on how to film a scene, because we were arguing a lot on how to shoot it and what se should do, but I think it was a good thing because we took the best idea from each person and created a video the satisfied everybody, another challenge for me was keeping a straight face, because I have the bad habit of laughing in serious situations. Lauren was definitely the one who contributed the most to the group, so we were basically following her instruction especially that she had the most knowledge for the our topic. The most enjoyable part of this project was filming.
