This latest project in its entirety has been a period of clarity for me and my own content creation. To be at liberty like i have been to formulate and express myself as i have and seeing how intuitively i’ve taken to this content form i have never touched or actually tried to execute before. And realize, before the project is actually delivered, that my deep desire to actually try it out, has gone rewarded. it’s lit a flame.
To back up if you havent read The MC1002 category of my website, its an obligatory part of my manipulating media module. Its all group and project work in various forms and medias, last semester it was one project, and in video form, this semester to my understanding there is 3 potentially 4 projects, in different forms. Done as a project is traditionally executed with gaff charts and people in distinct roles.
If you read my second post in this category, you’ll discover that i was not particularily happy with certain parts of that inital project and took matters into my own hands so i could take some solace in the fact that i salvaged my own vision and didn’t make anyones grade.
I will not need to do that for this one. My group has consisted of me and three very driven, proactive skilled women, that have done what has been asked of them, and made my job of production and dissemination the easiest its been in any project i can recall taking part in.
We came up with the name, the story, and the informal nature of the program in 1-2 meetings/sit downs. I felt even if i didn’t pay attention, work was being done. Im not accustomed to that feeling, as most my content creating has relied on me at the end of the day.
So when i was given the script draft, and told, write/elaborate this how you’d like it, and record it by what means you have available. Giving me creative liberties with good content they had made. They had made my job the easiest its ever been, and i’m extremely grateful for that regardless of the end result/mark.
I have done some audio production before, but not for my own content. Theres an entire story in my portfolio (Tewey Take Notes) that details my ventures in that medium. My expirience with that was vital for me to execute the production the way that i did.
Where we were recommended to just use our phone, i went and loaned an audio recorder, a microphone, an XLR cable, and a microphone stand, put this up as if i had done it a billion times, checked that the audio worked how i wanted it to, recorded my script the same way i would if i was producing someones rap song. Threw it into the free audio suite on my computer, and produced a 3 minute podcast, as if i had done it a billion times before. I actually surprised myself with how much of this i just knew how to do.
I also have a profound love of intuitively understanding and executing things i never have done before in Media. Learning without the instruction manual basically. And i had not used the audio recorder, or the audio suite so much as once before this project. yet i have now had three people listen to and review the quality of what i made. And there is nothing negative to say about it. I love that!
I opened this post saying that the project lit a fire. It surely has, where as doing a podcast has been very loose idea i’ve been dabbling with to see if i could make it work on my website. I now have a genuine wish and desire to make a podcast for publishing right here on KingsEyes.life
I have asked that my microphone is sent to me from Norway, i have my resources ready and i have a format in mind that isn’t too massive and i believe i can manage to do consistently. making no promises off course, but id like to do one either weekly or bi weekly.
As Social Doozy is a uni project, i doubt that will be the exact presentation/program ill post on here, but this episode i now have made will indeed be published on here for people to listen to.
Thank you for reading and keeping up with the blog!
