I never thought making a video about coronavirus and quarantine would be so hard because it is arguably the hottest topic in the world right now, but boy was I wrong!
Don’t get me wrong, the interviews we have are great. They’re just so different. We have three completely different situations that are all bound by the fact they were in University quarantine, so putting them together in a cohesive narrative is really difficult.
That’s why we need to sit down and brainstorm how we want this to go. We need a good structure where holes can be filled by narration and data, so the differences highlight each other rather than make it hard to figure out what is going on.
There is a ton of footage for me to comb through (almost an hour and a half in total), so I have a feeling we will need to cut that way down and only choose the best bits, leaving the rest to be done by narration.
I know I have the building blocks, now it’s just about putting them together!
