For the My Story Project, I chose to use my spring break trip with Loyola University Maryland’s Outdoor Adventure Program to Cochise Stronghold, located in southern Arizona. The trip was a training trip for our entire student staff, as well as our 3 person Pro-staff. The trip left on Saturday, February 18th, and lasted into the early hours of Sunday, March 8th.
The biggest challenge I faced while making this project was selecting footage to use. I collected nearly three hours worth of hiking/rock climbing videos and over two-hundred photos of the scenic desert on a GoPro Hero 3+. For the production of the project, I began with GoPro Studio 2.0 to trip select film to make into a video. Once I had finished the video pieces, I transferred to iMovie to edit, add music, and make transitions to the final cut. I chose to do the project a little different since I felt my style of videos left a more visual story to be seen.
