“Making Documentary” was an awesome HASS class. This video, my final project, was a collaboration between three students (Noalee, Ruth and myself). The focus of our film was Prof. Annette Kim and her group, the MIT Sidewalk Lab. It was a blast learning to use the advanced camera kits that the writing department had reserved for the film students and I really enjoyed putting this piece together. The process was brutal – we spent a lot of time writing and polishing the script, filming interview and b-roll footage, and editing. We iterated on each of those processes and went through several versions of a script and a video before finally recognized our vision as being realized in piece above. That’s how we knew we were done!
