summer video extras
We knocked out a few more “web extras” for Mālamalama magazine this summer.
My main job is to shape the features through the interviews. Then I suggest (kindly dictate?) the edits and give feedback on how it fits together with the visuals. Still not sure what that job is called, but it’s kind of like writing except with pictures and sounds. lol.
We hosted these all on YouTube but have since switched to Vimeo (much better!!).
Three videos and some brief commentary after the jump.
This one was popular, “Five easy Native Hawaiian landscaping plants”–great title, huh? ;) Very “grabby” in that easily digestible way that’s always recommended.
Doing this really made me envious of people who work outdoors and in such a gorgeous location as Haiku Valley. I love the Google Earth graphics, too, tho I think we made a mistake going with that homemade-sounding wind effect. lmao!
Talked to the UH softball coach about their winning season. Pretty obvious Coach Coolen has experience dealing with media; he made the whole process exceptionally fast and easy. I strongly felt this video was too long, but was voted down in favor of giving more info to people who are really interested in softball *shrug*
Visited the preservation team at Hamilton Library to talk about their ongoing flood recovery efforts. Thought we did a good job keeping it tight and to the point.
