Now that the semester is approaching it’s end, my internship has shifted towards projects!
The first of these is collaborating with my supervisor and a video producer to begin making videos for the library. Throughout this project we hope to make tutorial videos, tour videos, and explain videos, but the first one will be an overview video that incorporates all three of these elements. In it we will introduce the different sections of the music library, explain what someone can find at each one, and show how to check out books/use our circulation services.
To put this together, we had to first visualize what we want the video to look like, and how we want to communicate. This meant loose scripting, taking photographs to use a storyboards, and brainstorming which examples to use during the video. We are approaching the end of this planning stage, which means soon we will being shooting! After we do some initial takes we plan on reviewing our strategy before editing.
When all is said and done, we hope to include the video in our “How to use the Music Library” library research guide.
