The final touch – Reflection Post Week 8

How to get up a video on time – or are we actually going to meet the deadline?

It´s the last week. How did that happen?


This week we finally started working on the video. Together with the Split we distributed the last tasks and our video started to take form.After talking to Nancy last week,we took her ideas and feedback into consideration and made our storyboard a lot more “human” and focused on ConstruCasas case. We also changed our script to adapt it to the new storyboard. Having recorded that script already makes things a lot easier for us this week as we only have to focus on drawing and editing the video. At least that´s what we thought; after listening to it we realised that you could hear our group mates talking in the background and that was disturbing the audio. So on Tuesday Me, Thomas and Bogdan recorded it a second time and this time it was a to better! Jackie and Oliver started on designing the sketches for our video. On Wednesday they finalised them and edited them in Photoshop so  they can be put in the video.Big thanks to Bogdan at this point for editing the video and making it reality!


Our teamwork this week was really good I think. Everybody knew what to do and worked on their tasks, but did´t forget to offer their help to the others if needed. That is one of the main things we learned over the whole course I think. That it is important to look after each other and make sure nobody gets lost. After struggling with that a bit in the beginning in the last few weeks we really have that under control and i can at least say for myself that I´m very grateful if somebody offers me to help and I do appreciated getting help as much as I like to help my teammates.We also set up one final meeting to finalise all our plans and “products” we came up with to help our NGO.

If we had to do it again I would say we should have definitely gotten together a lot earlier to solve our teamwork issues. Because since we did that everything was so much easier and a lot more fun. All in all it´s safe to say that we all did learn a lot in the last 8 weeks and enjoyed it.
