Blog Post 3/3 Digital Journalism

Reflection
Overall i am happy with the outcome of the 3rd and last mission.

In terms of the positive throughout the project, Me and David work extremely well together as a team and we manage to split to workload evenly. we also manage to complete the video within the giving time we had

 In terms of negatives throughout the project, One big issue that cam apparent as we progressed in the mission was the lack of pre-production and post production meetings. we also only had two member in the group this gave us an disadvantage as the workload was much grater for the two of us. The limited time also played a role n the quality of our final product

In conclusion i believe we produced a great project using the tools and knowledge at our disposal.
In conclusion we as a team were happy with the project we made using the tools a knowledge we had to at at disposal .

The idea of emulating a talk show was a very interesting path we ended up taking, it allowed us to fill the roles with the amount of people we had and the time span in with we had to do it.

In terms of the actual production it went smoothly many due to the many hours of research and pre-production meets we did prier. during the shoot we were constantly making small changes and were in constant communication. i was tasked with the edit of the video, i faced little to no challenges while editing this was mainly due to the knowing the direction the group wanted to g…
