My third package had to be one of the most challenging tasks I’ve faced this semester. Every problem that could occur did, but with perseverance I successfully completed it.
When I began shooting footage for the package, I didn’t realize that the lighting was bad until after I started logging it. I was so disappointed. However, what I’m learning in this field is that sometimes you have to improvise. That’s exactly what I did. I did the best with what I had and in my opinion, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
One significant difference I’ve noticed is the amount of time it took to edit. Unlike the first package, it didn’t take me all night. I was more comfortable with Final Cut Pro and the project just flowed.
While I am sad that the semester is ending so soon, I am so grateful for what I’ve learned in TV News and I’m looking forward to expanding that knowledge.
