Who in the World is Sylvia, Journalist?
By Sylvia Mendoza
Another assignment for our week 2 of Backpack Journalism is to do a short video, introducing ourselves in under 2 minutes. I worked on this for about 8 hours on my Windows Movie Maker–and struggled. I got this down to just under 4 minutes, going through tons of “footage”, trying to add music (did not succeed), and could not figure out how to transfer this to Adobe Premiere for a cleaner edit. I finally figured out how to get it into the right format–.wmv–and uploaded it to YouTube and now there’s no sound. Anyhow, for class purposes, here is my attempt for now. I will figure it out.
Update: May 30, 2012: Figured out the sound. Hear a little of my story…
