Final Project


My final project turned out differently than originally planned. I knew the video of my grandpa explaining his time in the war existed but was surprised to find out how much background noise was in the video so that required some shifting on my part. This project turned into a video essay and documentary about my grandpa’s time in the service, with commentary from my Grandpa’s video, my dad and myself. I included creative commons footage from World War II, footage from my grandpa telling his life story, photos of my grandpa from the war, a voice recording of my dad sharing his memories and me sharing a few of my memories and preservation of details. If I was to do this again, I would make this video more formal with interviews of more relatives sharing their stories of my grandpa. I do not know how difficult it would have been to remove the children talking in the original video, but that was really outside the scope of the project.
