This video was the final project in my Community Engagement class at GSLIS, and amounted to a continuation of my work with Bristol Place Metanoia Centers and the UC2B project in Intro to Community Informatics in the Fall of 2010. I was part of a team of 3 students who were partnered with community organizations working on economic issues. We were tasked with making a film that tells the story of the organizations, and then lays out a vision for how the organizations and the communities they serve can use the coming UC2B broadband network to promote economic empowerment and community strength.
I did all of the interviews for the Metanoia Centers parts of the film, and the vast majority of the audio/video editing in Adobe Premiere. It was an excellent opportunity to finally learn multitrack editing and multimedia storytelling in a throughgoing way, and the product will hopefully be of real and enduring use to both our partner organizations and the UC2B project. We also each produced a field report on our organization and its context, and these informed the making of the film throughout the process.
