Woodmen Circle Home, the abandoned building on the corner of FM 1417 and U.S. Highway 56 in Sherman, Texas, was a one-of-a-kind orphanage and retirement home established by women during the Great Depression. It operated from 1929 until 1971. Learn about the home’s history from the people who lived there and take a look inside it now. Video shot by me and edited by me in FinalCut Pro for the Herald Democrat.
This video was my final project for my Basic Audio and Video course at SMU. The class came up with a concept for a show, two students served as hosts or anchors for the show, and each student produced a package to air during it. My class produced a show around the theme “addictions and obsessions,” covering serious problems among college students such as drinking and smoking to more light-hearted obsessions, such as the book and movie enterprise “Twilight.” Video shot by me with a Sony PD170 miniDV 3 chip camera and edited by me in FinalCut Pro.
I created this video as a participant in a student workshop as part of Texas Multimedia Workshops run by video and photojournalists in the Dallas area. Students created audio slideshows or videos of the Cinco de Mayo parade on May 1, 2010 in Oak Cliff. Videos were supposed to be short with varied shots (wide, medium, and tight) and with the footage laid over some NAT sound music. Video shot by me with a Sony PD170 miniDV 3 chip camera and edited by me in FinalCut Pro.
