Adam Eucker’s Final Individual Project

For my final individual project, I did a story on Casey Heffernan, a student at the UW who volunteered as a translator in Ecuador. There he worked with a team of doctors, nurses and other translators performing free and living saving surgeries for children.

For the final project, I was able to take the comments from my first cut, and refine the story.  One large problem with the original story was it didn’t have a real ending, and I thought I was able to add that in the final cut.  Another issue was that the original video ran over two minutes, but I was able to cut down the length and add some important information about the story.  I also was able to figure out how to export the video in a way which better served a Youtube project, because the original video looked too small inside of the Youtube video “frame”.

If I had the chance to redo the project I would try to get better footage of Heffernan during the interview.  It looks grainy and dark.  Also, I would try getting better b-roll type footage of Casey in order to give the story more variety.

Overall, I am happy with the way the story turned out after I made the improvements.
