My strongest feeling as I sit down to type my final thoughts on 604, are relief, relief that it is almost done (apart from the Refinery Exhibition which will be fun – the hard stuff is all over now)… the relief is strongly followed by satisfaction and pride… of a project and assessment done to the absolute best of my abilities.
I have learnt a huge amount about project planning, research, experimenting & critique.. learning from mistakes also.. nothing that I did on this project wasn’t important in some way for my learning.. even if it was not used in the final piece.
I am so glad I choose to try video over photography this semester for my 604 paper (which is one of the papers towards my Degree) I have learnt so much in the way of creating videos. Trying videography has opened up a whole new door for my career. Before I started this project I wasn’t sure I would be able to pull of a piece of moving imagery that I could be proud of. I wasn’t sure I would want to do video again.. It was an experiment.. that has been extremely successful. Not only do I want to do video again, I now know I can create clips which I can be just as satisfied with as my still imagery.
I can add a whole new selling point to Jessica Shirley as a service provider.
