My View On FAMU!

With respect to the FAMU story…

a) What mediums were used to tell the story?

Mediums: Natural sounds, great interviews (storytellers), and dynamic photos/videos helped to make this video not only informative, but allow viewers to be apart of this famous band.

b) Is one more effective than the other?

Their use of natural sound or the sound from their practices/performances was the most effective medium used to tell this story. How can you show a video of the “best band in the land” without using their actual sound. I could easily watch this video with visuals and still be entertained.

c) What works well for the story?

What works well for the story is that it is just that, a story. It has a beginning middle and end. The interviews allowed me into the world of their band and allowed me to get a full view of what makes them one of the best. In addition to that, the sound was amazing! When closing my eyes, I imagined myself sitting in the stadium watching them.

d) What doesn’t work well for the story?
What didn’t work so well is some of the transitions used. Some of the pictures were moving so fast, that it was hard for me to appreciate them fully and take them all in. It would have also been nice to see some of the people that they were interviewing along with their name or instrument that they played. I think had they done that, it would have allowed me to better connect with those individuals. Even some of the solos would have been nice to see for that same reason, or even a picture that matched their description as having their largest band in history.
