This is the website for my documentary project. The Documentary Project was finding a person, place or idea to document and write a book on. I chose to do my documentary on the morality of euthanizing animals. Here you will find the digital version of my book, the intro video for my book, a gallery of some of the photos I took in the proccess of this production and bios for all of the people I interviewed.
The process of making my Intro Vid was a complete learning experience for me. This was my first time really using Adobe After Effects. The video was supposed to be a one minute long commercial, excluding the five seconds of black at the end. It was a little difficult to explain my book topic and also leave it open enough to persuade viewers to read my book all within one minute without sounding rushed. I also chose background music that was sad to some extent simply because it's not a happy topic. It's literally about death. And for the same reason, I made the video slow and calm without a whole lot of special effects because I wanted my viewer to say, "That's sad." or, "That's debatable." not, "That's neat!" Although, I think I did a pretty good job with what I have even though I know I am capable of making much more.
