Oral Presentaion and WIP Mini project is now all compleated and submitted, I was pretty happy with it in the end, though assigntments are never easy. i learned alot during my FMP and the course as a whole. For me i found that this oral presentation was the best one iv done so far and so it should be in my opinion iv learned alot in 9 months. I learned that a fully prepeared script is the only way it can work for me. one thing i learned was that really 10 mins is not long and trying to fit everything in being clear and consise was a challenge but quite enjoyable. Once I had a fully complete script the process moved forward quickly .
Today was very tough, having planned to have the oral presentation completed by now and after many many practices i felt it was still a long way off and the script was simply not large enough or specific enough and i found it impossible to fill the blank spaces. The frustration was enormous and i decided major action needed to be taken. so today before and after work i re-wrote the entire script. This has made an enormous diffrence and after the first read through practice presentation I only hesitated twice and it reached the time of 9mins 30 i was speaking quite fast so i aim to practice exstensivly tomorrow to give the presention a good flow. and with some tweeks to the script hopefully nail the timing and the presentation.
This Week I have probably recorded and re-redorded my oral presentaion around 20 times in order to getting used to speaking to the computer and devoloping my script and notes it started off very poorly and I was quickly running out of things too say, and listenting back too the presentsions a practiced my voice was robotic and I sounded bored. many practices later i felt far more relaxed and a converational feel came over, within my oral presention at the moment i still am running over by a couple of minutes but i wish to have version compleated early on in the week so i can send it too the tutors to receive feedback. i want to take viewer on a journey through this mini project i have created and give an inresting insight into amateur racing and how its a place of determination and ambition.
After a couple of webinars and Module leader office hours my WIP has devoloped and been edited alot. this mini project has been quite tough and to create something compleatly diffrent from my FMP has pushed me, but this is what the course is about. trying not to be overly objective in discussion about my WIP I was encouraged to carefully trawl thorough my many images. This did work out, as I Discovered stronger images i cant beleive i missed. the challenge at the moment is to carefully edit the images to construct a storyline. to take the viewer through a journey of amateur motorsport in the off season within the UK.
