Student Work Highlight: Rachel Is Here
Background: This 360 video project was developed in the Writing and Directing: Script to Screen (NMDS 5254) with Media Studies Program Director Vlad Nikolic by Macha Rose. Students were expected to write a full script and develop two scenes to be filmed. Due to the flexibility of this traditional traditional narrative film style class, Macha was able to experiment with 360 storytelling.
It was very rewarding because through this class I learned how to develop better storytelling skills no matter what format, and got to experiment with both DSLR and 360 filmmaking. – Macha Rose
