In anticipation of all of my class needing to do a photojournalism project, I decided that it was about time that I updated my own graphic design and video program skills. I haven't had an editing class for decades and I know there are products out there that fall somewhere between the (expensive!) beauty of my Adobe Premiere program and the (free!) simplicity of Windows Movie Maker.
So, with that in mind, I am taking my first MOCC -- Digital Storytelling with Adobe Mobile and Web Apps.
My first assignment was to create a short narrated movie using Adobe Voice (or, for non-Mac users, Project M). Here is my story:
Food: A story told with Adobe Voice.
(be warned: it makes your voice very, very deep)
My next assignment was to put together a visual + words story about who I am using Adobe Slate:
Will the real Pamela Scheffler please come forward? A story told with Slate.
Next I will be working on creating a fairy tale (visuals only, no words allowed) using Photoshop (or Mix or Fix, but they don't work on my phone) and Slate.
Both Voice and Slate are great options for student Photojournalism projects and very easy to use.
I am Mela, Pam, or Pamela. My first experience in Ireland was in 1990 when my best friend, Shannon, and I biked the island. I am very happy to have the opportunity to share this special island with students from my own special islands.
