This project was a fun and easy introduction to using programs dealing with sound, picture, and video: Audacity, Windows Live Movie Maker, and iMovie. My favorite part of the project was selecting the music and creating a mood that was in sync with my script and photographs. It was challenging at first to listen to my voice over the music; however, after the first couple of playbacks, I became more focused on editing and volume control than engaging in a mental judgement rant about my tone of voice. After completing the podcast and watching it for the first time, there was a great sense of accomplishment and pride. Practically speaking that I did something new and out of my comfort zone and more importantly, that the product of these efforts resulted in a podcast that I feel truly represents me.
