Media 5: Done

coverBAM! Justice in Diversity, my group’s final project for The Art of Persuasion, is finished at last. It was definitely a challenging final week, but I’m pretty happy with the results. A lot changed in the last week, as Ajeet’s computer troubles meant that he couldn’t animate the panels any more, which meant that the job fell to me. In exchange, Ajeet and Aravindha handled the sound mix and the final export and submission, whilst I concentrating on making some god damn speech bubbles fly around the screen.

But this project was very rewarding in how it built my familiarity with Adobe programs, mostly Photoshop and Premiere. I’ve had my fair share of technical troubles, but at the same time we were able to create some cool results such as the above comic book cover, which I’m pretty proud of.

All in all, this subject was pretty cool. As I wrote down at the start, it opened me up to the wide world of documentary, and these projects brought a variety of challenges that have helped me improve my craft and the way I work. I would’ve liked to have done a bit more in each class aside from look at class work every single time, and having to work with students from a different year level was another kind of challenge. But, at the end of the day, I enjoyed this course and don’t regret choosing it. Thanks Liam!
