Last night was special.
Four months of hard work culminated in a successful presentation of our project, Uprooted.
Over 300 members of our community came to campus to watch the live presentation of the short documentaries that told the stories of Venezuelan migrants in Medellín, Colombia. It was a surreal experience to see the impact the films had, and I’m grateful to have been a part of this amazing project.
To the Vinotinto FC family, thank you so much for allowing us into your lives and sharing your story. The world now knows how special you all are.
After filming for 10 days in Colombia, our team had a little over a month to edit the films together. We would share our radio cuts, scenes, assemblies, and rough cuts in class and give each other feedback. It was a long and tedious process, but it proved worthy.
Here’s what our final timeline looked like:
While the video team worked on editing the short documentaries, the developers, writers, designers and photographers worked on making sure the website was coming together, the stories were polished, the interactive graphics were functioning, and the photo journey was edited.
The Final Product
And here is my team’s final video:
