I still have a lot of work to do to bring this DST together, but I think the experience of storyboarding was extremely helpful last week. Storyboarding exposed some elements of my script that could flow quite a bit better , and, along with comments from Dr. Schrum, helped me to realize that there needs to be more of a hook to draw viewers into the story. The process of revising my script, in addition to thinking of different ways to make it more interesting for viewers, is something that I have been trying to focus on as I continue to compile video and images.
I also think it was very helpful to see the rubric for the first time. I think that I have been obsessing about planning the technological aspects of the story I am telling. While the images and videos I am gathering are going to be essential to telling my story in a digital format, the story itself is still key. I still have a lot to do, and there are still scheduling challenges to address that may force me to scale back or remove an interview or two, but I feel as if my focus is where it should be as the story comes together in these final weeks.
