DIY Project: Initial Progress

on November 30, 2013

Last Friday, we met with Ms. Wakeman (who is our mentor/advisor for this project) to discuss the logistics on where our project would fit in with the school’s Guidevisement program. She said that she spoke to Ms. Peterson (the Guidance specialist at our school) about our project, but unfortunately, isn’t sure right now whether they can use our material or not. Although we were disappointed, we decided that this first video could be our senior video, and even if it doesn’t work, we can still move on with the other grade levels. Our best bet right now is to produce a really great video that impresses them, so they can use it. If it isn’t shown at school, it will still be available online on Youtube or Vimeo for the public to see!

Our first video is intended for seniors who applied to colleges this week (UC/CSU apps are due today! Good luck!!!) about the FAFSA, which stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Sometime during next week, we will present and discuss the research we’ve done over break and finalize our ideas for the BBN storyboard, so that BBN (the video/newcast class) can take our plans and produce the video.

Shoutout to Mr. Z, who has been so helpful already, by promising us that BBN will help us and talking us through our obstacles. We’re grateful that we have such a supportive teacher!

(I really need a GIF of Mr. Z saying “High Four!”)
