  4. Review of Trial

    1. 

    First impression, I think you need to speak a little clearer, after skipping some parts to the fast forward part I think you should mute the video for the fast forward sound, cause it gets annoying. In the silent parts I also think you should like put music or something. Also, in the fast forward part, the viewer can’t really see the video very well. So maybe you should shorten and not fast forward that part rather than fast forward the whole thing. Also, you fast forwarded the speech/interview of someone, if you’re not going to show the interview I think you should just remove it rather than fast forward through it. It looks offensive to whoever was speaking, as well as frustrating to the viewer. The video (images) itself was good I think, in its raw form. Since it’s a documentary, I think the time should be fine then, but for me it just feels rather long as an online video. So, the video was okay :) - Bela Corpus

    1. At the 46 millions cars the words did not come out/too short.

    2. Use the speed up very seldomly, for in between going, not for showing something. It is too jittery already. Like the harvest, and the schools. Better you cut more material out. 

    3. Interviews are mostly not interesting. You speeded up the middle school guy in the brown shirt for example but took very long time showing him. Betttr just use a soundbite of him, a sentence, thats it. 

    4. Your soundmanagement can be improved. Sometimes your comments cannot be heard over the sound of the movie…

    That is all. Most important, I repeat myself, loose the jittery stuff, except for example the travel from Bengkulu City to Agricinal. Even there, you might stop shortly after the airport, where it shows the name Kota bengkulu. Idem when entering Agricinal….

    That is all, I like it. ( Dad) Samuel Siahaan

    6/02/13

    Today I went to my supervisor ibu debora and ask her what I need to finish for the final week and she said it was the product and the authentic statement. Before that I uploded my trial of work in my youtube and ask people to evaluate it and 6 people from different schools and range of age review my trial product. While so I was editing with their review and my imovie crashed leading that some voice over are gone and now I need to do the music and the voice over again. 

    So a lot of problems has been in this week since I have to finish my product but my laptop is acting all weird and my solution would be that i publish the movie without the music and voice over first and then i do it afterwards. I also need to do subtitles for a while and put names of people I interview according to people and to solve that i am doing exactly what I am told to and also I take their advice and now I am editing it again.

    So now the product is on progress to be done and i also have made the cover of my cd which will be posted here.

    I learned that nothing goes ever your ways and when it comes a time where your computer acts funny you just have to do some parts all over again. So I hope I’ll finish on time and I also heard the rain is falling again which is bad because the rain in indonesia is not friendly..
