Over the course of this week, we learned how to put together a script for our mini-documentary on our trip to Notre Dame. At the end of the week, we worked on voice-overs and putting together our script.
We used an old PNN script as an example — it showed us a lot more about how the structure of a script worked as well as the significant role images will play in our mini-documentary. We learned how important it was to have relevant images — they are eye-grabbing and help maintain our audience’s attention. However, words are just as important as well. They tell the story & provide context to the images we display. Here’s one of the stills I used, which was paired with words to create an immersive storytelling experience:
One of us finished her voice-over by the end of today — in order to ensure that our voice-over was clear of as much background noise as possible, we remained quiet while she recorded herself. Over the course of next week, we will work more on our mini-documentary as well as learning more about Adobe Premiere.
Notre Dame was an educational experience — and we are still learning from it months after the trip! You can view my script here:
