Our documentary class has shifted from transcribing interviews into editing mode. Prof. Luskay divided us into three groups with lead editors who will supervise the editing of the three acts of our film, “Cuba’s Crossroads.” By this Tuesday, we need to find the best sound bites to fit the flow of the story, which includes sections on politics, agriculture, tourism and, of course, rock music. This means reviewing each transcribed interview, and listening and watching to find the most captivating and informative moments.
Oh! I almost forgot to mention that our poster was done. We were so excited, and nervous, when we heard the news. The poster means our film is official, but — of course — it doesn’t exist until we finish the editing, not to mention recording the voiceover for narrated portions, the music, the titles, and more. Better get back to work!
