At this point I feel that I am a little behind in my digital story considering I volunteered to go first. I am really excited about this project. So far the obstacles that I am trying to overcome have to do with my script. I feel like I know what I want to put in the story but I have been struggling to write the script first. I have already started the movie process and the story board but I cannot get a script completely written. I think this is making me fall behind a little because it would probably be easier to have a script and then do the story board and then the movie part. I don’t know, I guess it is just my way of thinking. Now that I have started the movie and the story board I think maybe I will be able to continue from where I left off and write a script from that point. Another problem I am having is putting things in a good order. I think I am trying to do it in chronological order but sometimes I feel like that isn’t working. I am enjoying the story that I am doing and I am excited about the project so I do not feel that my struggles are all that bad. I do have so much more work to do and it is very time consuming and tedious. It requires a lot of work to make everything match up. I have 28 seconds so far and every single slide that I have finished and successfully recording my voice and matched up the timing correctly feels so great. It is a great accomplishment to do a project like this because it requires so much effort and it is hard to get it right the first time so when it is finally right, it feels amazing.
