Forever Families - Stories of Adoption

Hello everyone! I don't know if anyone is checking this, but I finally got my multimedia show I created for my adoption portrait project uploaded to Youtube. Check it out if you have a few minutes and let me know what you think. Thanks, and enjoy the summer! Leslie

Fantastic, Leslie. Really.

I loved the pace of the whole thing, and the nice fades in and out of music with the recorded pieces.

You did a great job! And I loved the new portraits of the kids from Sierra Leone and Columbia. Great family portrait, too.

Great images. The speaking was muffled and therefore hard to hear without cranking up the volume; it might be worth fixing.

Thank you to everyone! This was my very first project of this type and I feel the audio interview clips turned out amazing well with the exception of the last two. I realize there are issues there. I have learned a bit about audio capture through this, so it should go better next time. It sounds better with headphones or through external speakers. Yes, I hope to do this type of "end-product" for my first senior project next semester...this was a trial run but I am very pleased with it considering I had never touched Final Cut or Soundtrack Pro before this project. I learned as I went, Googling "How do you (fill in the blank) in Final Cut?" as I needed to figure out how to do something. ;) I feel that this is the direction online news delivery is going, and my goal is to tell stories, so this type of project works for me. Again, thank you!
