Describe the ups and downs you have encountered to date in your inquiry. Specifically, when were you frustrated or struggling in your inquiry, what did you do to address the situation?

The most difficult part of my inquiry was definitely filming and editing my short film. First of all, one of the main characters wasn’t able to make it, so I had to fill in for her. This meant that it was extremely difficult for me to direct some scenes, as I was IN them. Thankfully, one of my friends was able to come and help direct the scenes that I was in, and we were able to make it work.

As for editing, I was struggling with making all the scenes to flow and fit together. I made multiple different copies of the film, with the clips in different orders, to see which one I liked best. This was a great strategy as it gave me options and the opportunity to explore different styles and ideas.

I’m now finished my short film! I can’t wait to share my work with the class:)
