Welcome to my Documentary Website. The documentary project was an immense research project I worked on during the beginning of 2018. The topic I chose for this project is the Mar-Ken International K9 Training Center, a company that trains both police dogs and protection dogs. This website showcases the many parts of this project that I have created throughout each of my classes including the final product, my book.
The Documentary unit was by far one of the most rewarding projects I have ever completed during my time in Freestyle Academy. The reason why it was so rewarding was because of the amount of work that was put into every aspect of the project from my English, Design, and Digital Media classes. The focus of the Documentary project is to answer the question: “How do you creatively and truthfully portray a significant person, group, place, idea or issue in the community?”. In my English class, we answered this question when creating the center of this project, the Documentary book. In my Design class, we worked with Adobe Indesign to design the layout of the book. In my Digital Media class, I worked to create this website using Adobe Dreamweaver, and learned how to use Adobe After Effects to produce a commercial created for the book. Though at some points it was challenging to complete each part of this project in each of my classes, I enjoyed every aspect produced throughout this section.
