I am quite pleased with this. I managed to tie yet another COETAIL project to work. I further used the opportunity to better familiarize myself with my new MacBook Pro (Jury is still out for me on how much “better” it is in terms of ease of use compared to MS, though definitely prettier).
I turned my first beta Keynote into a slideshare and put it up on this blog which is in turn placed on my Facebook account. I then heard back from a few friends/colleagues, one of whom suggested a need for some (not overpowering) music in the background (Thanks Shaun Brickman).
I started a Google search for “motivational Mozart” which led me to other motivational videos on YouTube which in turn led me to the Therapeutic Field idea by Alison Tanaki which advertised her free for download music and open use with attribution!
Well, I started at, as we all usually do I imagine, with a plan. A list of categories and words, really, about my ideal school:

Once I started looking through the photos provided by Doshisha for the project, however, these plans weren’t so much as even referenced. Inspired by the slideshare we viewed in course 3, ISB Impressions, I was off. I wanted to keep it simple and let the pictorial narrative tell ME the story as I made it. In the end, I made a video loyal to my original idea anyway. I suppose that just goes to show that my vision remains true to itself regardless of the pathway.
Take a look and tell me what you think, won’t you?
