Today, Emily Eagle, one of my classmates, gave a quick tutorial in the Audacity program. I have been going through and cutting up the audio from my interviews with my teachers to get a feel and some good soundbites to inspire the structure of the portfolio video. I want to express what they are saying about me into something concise and meaningful. Will I use the sound clips from the interviews? I am not sure. I think there are some interesting bits where I feel like they are saying with authority who and what I am aiming for with this video. The soundcloud bit above is reflective of my first run through two interviews that are about twenty minutes each. I’m starting to organize parts I like into categories: teacher’s advice I just want to keep in a soundbite or video, nice things that they’ve said about me that I think are true and references to my blog. I want to find a way to highlight how useful and thoughtful blogging is and how I’ve been using this tool to improve myself as a graphic designer.
