Update from last week:
Decent film was actually obtained! In a previous blog post, I shared the concern that I had not retrieved any good footage on Day 1 of filming. Well… I stand corrected! One of our Howdy Farmers- Erik King- sharing something that he loves most about Howdy Farm, and I was able to record one clip that turned out well. After hours of trying to record, it is encouraging to see that I could recover something from it and that it wasn’t wasted time! Here is a picture of Erik during his interview while helping me out with my project- what a happy Howdy Farmer!
Today, I recorded some more interviews of a few different Howdy Farmers sharing what they loved most about Howdy Farm. It was great to hear all of their perspectives and I can’t wait to share them in the video! I think it is an important part of the introductory video because the rest of the video highlights who we are and what we do- and it is important to end the video by highlighting the rewards of our efforts. Here’s a candid shot of our Howdy Farmer Amanda during her interview- they all did great!
I also recorded voice-over for our videos. I tried using the microphone to record, but as mentioned in my last blog post I was still having issues with sound only coming out of one speaker or headphone. So instead, I recorded directly into my built-in computer microphone, and the quality of the recording came out better than I was expecting- so it looks like i’ll be using my computer for recording voice-overs from now on!
Howdy! My name is Marissa Albers and I am a Nutritional Sciences major pursuing a minor in Horticulture. My passion lies with food and where it comes from! I would eventually love to work with food security by helping malnourished populations find sustainable solutions to their hunger and nutrient deficiencies. I am excited to learn about how to grow healthy, local produce and to help bridge the gap between the community of Bryan/College Station and their food source!
