Overall this semester was quite the learning experience! The four of us, Kaleb, Victoria, Hurleen, and Lindsay, all came into this course without any prior documentary work. We learned a lot along the way, even though there were a few time where we thought we were going to completely lose it. The coolest part of this project was getting to know the employees of Cafe Louis and the students of the ESL program. By doing these projects we all saw a more intimate side to people we see on a day to day basis but rarely have any communication with. One of the more difficult task that arose during these projects was the culmination of the videos. Between the four of us, neither of us had any experience with final cut pro, which is the software we used to make our documentaries. But somehow some way we got our final projects completed and looking good! A big THANK YOU goes out to all of our interviewees! With out you guys these projects would not have been complete!
