A Hike In Oregon

When beginning this project I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Since I am still new to Oregon I wanted to go on an adventure and explore the place. What better way to do this than go on a hike! I originally wanted to see a waterfall, however I was unable to go to one for this project. I did find a beautiful place to film this video though.
I went to Siuslaw Falls expecting a beautiful waterfall, but sadly didn’t not find one. It was nonetheless beautiful and I had a blast! After I got all the footage, I headed out. When attempting to leave I lost cell service and was unaware of how to get back home. I was wandering around different streets for about 40 minutes until things started to look familiar. I trusted my instincts and eventually was able to find cell service to get back home. Note to self, pay attention to landmarks!
If I were to do this project again, I would plan my transitions better. There are a few places in the video where the clips are choppy during transitions. There are others that aren’t faded out well, so it instantly cuts to the next shot, making the moment feel uneasy. There is a clip or two in there where I somehow forgot to focus my camera and now have blurry shots. There are a bunch of little things I wish I could go back and fix, but overall I am pleased with the results.
From pre-production to post- production, this project has been a wild ride! It has been so fun and rewarding to get out of the house and film this adventure. I hope to do this again, just to document the fun times that I have. Also, how cool is it that this is our final project! I am so happy to have been able to do this project. This has been a rewarding experience!
