It sure isn’t and please have no one else convince you otherwise. Oh!! I’m sorry. Let me tell you what it is that I’m talking about. It’s a Video. And a Poster. All this time till this point in the course, we have been writing reports, making powerpoint presentations. But, towards the end of this term all that we are required to do is to make a video presentation for one paper and a poster presentation for the other. Easier said than done, eh?
Well, since our coursework score depended on the Video, we really had to do things good and not really in a hotch-potch manner. What started off was a hunt for information of the firm that we were covering, and possible videos too. What we ended up with was an overload and jotting them all down within the 7 min time limit was an impossible task. So, what you do now is make a story board. Heaven knows what it really means in the professional world, we went ahead with our own understanding and came up with a flow. Now it was last week that we were supposed to record, when just around St. Patrick’s Day, I ended up with a sore throat. Brushing it aside as a minor thing, I went out in full spirits on the afore-mentioned day. The result shouldn’t be hard to guess. So, there I was more or less ruled out for the recording with about half the show yet to be done. But, then gallant knights always await to save the day, as did one of group member, who volunteered to do all the talking. And, so the day was saved and we made it in time.
It was time for Poster. What began was a hunt for a software to do the same. In retrospect, I wonder why we had brushed off MS Powerpoint in the first place? Never mind. We found one and work began. Now, my tide of misfortune wasn’t over yet. After a wonderful Saturday, with some friends visiting London, I realised I was down with flu. Made my working on the proceedings a fair bit difficult. But perseverance pays, and the job is done. In fact, as we speak, the poster is getting printed for the presentation tomorrow. Till then, Adios!!
Oh btw, here is the video that we did for our coursework, the one I was talking about. Far from a professional one though!!
