Yi Wang Ms. Krueger Mass Media Period 1 28 January 2014 Media Project Reflection Overall, the media project was an exciting and new experience for me. I had seen my brother’s media project from two years ago, and had wondered if I would be doing one myself – of course I got my answer this year. I also felt like the project was a huge undertaking, and would probably require much more effect than it appeared. After all, I was learning about all the work that unsung artists had to put into a film, such as editing and cinematography, and knew that my friends and I would eventually had to do all those things when we made our project. So, I was careful not to underestimate the workload that this project would mean. In summary, when the media project was assigned, I was excited and nervous at the same time. Our group’s pre-production involved picking the group, coming up with the general premise of the film, and casting. Picking my group was by far the easiest part – we had all been friends for at least 4 years at that point. There were many ideas for a project when my group talked – a parody music video for a rap song, a mockumentary, and many others. But the common trend we saw was that we wanted to make a comedy film, since it best fit our personalities. In the end we decided to poke fun at ourselves by making a “mockumentary” about us playing basketball in an amateur league. We actually came up with potential jokes in the movie before we storyboarded or scripted, and many of those jokes made it into the final movie (that was how we decided on making this movie – all the potential jokes we could use). To storyboard, we all met on Skype one day and video-chatted, with one person recording what we

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
