Hangout with Alan

So here’s our final hangout within this module and it was super helpful. We were mainly talking about the final video, of course. There are some challenges our team faced while making a video draft. Alan shared some really simple way to solve it. This hangout also gave us some new ideas and inspiration for the video. I do wish other teams find useful tips in this video ✌

WISH US LUCK!!

This is the last week of module 1 which we actually started working on our video. Unfortunately, one of our group mates quitted the program and we end up with four people in our group. This actually brought a big challenge to our group to get over with the work and dividing the tasks between four of us instead of five! This week we started making the video and we are still busy and focused on recording and drawing our final video. We also decided on making a new storyboard which would convey our final idea much better to the viewer as our previous storyboard was a bit vague and not clearly showed the message. Our final script which we wrote last week is a big help for us in recording session of the video. These, storyboard and script, actually help us a lot to organize our ideas and put them into a final video indeed. We distributed the tasks for video editing to Daniel and Li jing, Liu does the drawing as he is very talented in drawing, and I am in charge of writing the introduction and the conclusion of our video. I am also going to be the spokesperson and going to voice over the video! I am actually going to tackle this big challenge of speaking as fast as possible while introducing the cure of our idea to our NGO.

In my opinion, our team work this week was the best. All group members knew their tasks and were busy working on their tasks during project community class. The most important thing is our collaboration while everybody does a different task. We all very appreciate to help each other and make sure none is struggling with his or her tasks. As we were three groups with 3 different ideas for our NGO, we tried to make one storyline out of our 3 ideas and make a report of them to provide to our NGO as well. We are on our way to finishing the video and that means the end of project community. It was a great experience of working in groups, it had ups and downs in teamwork, I think it could have been done a lot better if we have gotten together earlier in previous weeks as well. Also most important group work, decision making, listening to others, tolerating each other, coming up with different ideas and putting it up together and meeting up made this project community a big challenge for me and my groupmates.

In short, wish us LUCK!

Storyboarding 101 for dummies.

Let’s get right to the case! How do you plan storyboard? – Easy, you start with a script that is based on content plan which is based on all of your work that has been done previous weeks of your project community course and then you draw. Sounds simple and basic, but its not. From my own experience story boards are a bit of a pain in the seat.

So how did Split United plan a storyboard? Let’s start from the start. Previous week tech steward (Hey that’s me!) read the course guide till the end week and knew that this week we would have to make a story board. So the tech steward (me again!) wrote a small plan about what should be included in the script (content for the video). So when we started to get to the whole script writing for the video, we had a base to build it on, per se. Also we has this thing called Delf Design Guide which helped a bit.

delf design guideSo our teams lovely, Production Manager (today we are not naming people) created an awesome basis script for our video, which we made the story board from (so far we nailed everything), but we got a little bit confused on the story board so we drew it a bit wrong (just a bit). The storyline between the frames was a bit confusing, but that didn’t stop us. We improved our script and created a new story board. You can read all about our story board in the rest of our blog!(nobody just reads one blog post)

How is our work on our video. So far as, as I mentioned 5 times before (yes, I counted, end of discussion) we wrote a script which is the base and guidelines, and content, and almost a speech, and our advice, and everything we did all these five weeks (sorry, I’m just hyped). Since we work with the other team together, we needed to make sure they have a script as well which we will combine to a final script. That script will base all the video animations and speech and much more.

Also, we discussed the whole video making, both team agreed that we will make a stop motion drawing animation video, well it’s a bit hard to explain how the video animations will be based, but it will be awesome. We still have to combine some script and think through what kind of animations we will make and how they will tie together with each other. Since our groups had a meeting together we discussed that 4 (I’m one of them, but don’t tell anyone) people will work on video and its animations, we will meet together for a separate meeting outside school meetings.

That’s our plan so far on the video and the story board, of course some things will change, but this is the basis!

YouTube and NGOs – Article from Guardian Global Development

While this article uses a water related NGO (attention IWF teams!) the advice may be relevant to any of your clients. It is about NGO’s collaborating with the hugely successful independent “YouTubers” who attract millions of views to their home made videos. Check it out.

YouTube and aid: How NGOs can harness the power for good

I loved this resonant quote:

When charities choose to work with YouTubers they need to be prepared to relax their usual editorial control, which can be a problem for some organisations.

And, here is an example YouTube video:

First video teamwork

For the end of this project we will make a video about all the solution we gathered for our NGO. To make this video we need video tools, I’ve made a list of all the video tools available in both teams.Video

The video tool list contains:
Manda: IPad, iPhone, GoPro, reflex camera
Emilio: Phone
Mate: Camera (canon)
Anton: Camera (canon), GoPro
Georg: Camera (lumix)
Sandra: Video camera (canon)
Esmée: iPhone, digital camera

We also have Edvinas who is very good at video editing and has some video programs on his laptop, someone from the other team will help him to edit the video in the end.

We will start the first filming session next Wednesday, during the stahili event in the Hague.

I’ve got faith in our teamwork and can see the video coming alive, do you too?
