This week, we have been given detailed instructions on what to do for the video production project. This project is indeed the biggest part of this course.
We need to produce a video to solve a problem in a duration 7-10 minutes.
We started to brainstorm the ideas within our group. As for me, I don’t really have clear picture at the first place. It is to broad to think of something ‘ to solve a problem’ .
I was thinking about solving a problem on debt, because the students usually have financial problem. But then, after some discussion, we pick FASHION + ACADEMIC as the main themes.
This is because Fashion is very close to us, the girls in 4 DIVAS. Yet, we have to be on the right track, so academical element is included too.
“Basically, we came up a rough ideas of a girl who failed to present a suitable attire in an interview & eventually gives a bad impression on the interviewers.
Then, we are going to show the example of a person wearing a suitable attire for interview & compare with a messy person who is not tidy enough to sit for the interview session.
In the end, the girl realizes her mistakes and make changes. Thanks to the tips, the girl manages to score her ideal job in the future.” – This is taken from our group blog, http://www.4divalegacy.wordpress.com
The title of this video will be ‘ONE STEP CLOSER’. It symbolizes the girl who has will finally achieve her dreams.
I think the main aim to produce a video to solve a problem is good. But, it would be great if we were given the same theme to work on. It’s not to limit our creativity, but we will have the basic foundation to start. Lecturers and tutors can see how are we going to produce videos based on the same themes but various ways. For example, if the theme is ‘Nature’, then all of us need compete with others to produce video on the same theme, but the best among all. But since we are given free theme now, we cannot compare our video in terms of its’ effectiveness in delivering the same message based on the same theme as all other videos are produced based on their own themes.
However, this is only my humble opinion. I would love to proceed producing a video to educate people outside there. Maybe in the future, I can work on to produce my own video to convey any message to the people. Like what Matlutfi has been doing for years and how his videos has affected most people, including me. I like to watch his videos because there are important messages conveyed directly and indirectly. From what I can see, he has started to collaborate with some companies. I hope, by the end of this course, with the skills on ict that I’ll gain, I can make my own profit through the videos, like he did.
