I've never made a video before or posted anything on YouTube before this experience with Girls Making Media. This experience has been loads of fun and I learned lots of new things! I learned how to take audio clips and pictures and edit them to make a video. I also learned how to fix the format. By fixing the format, my video was able to look good on YouTube and not look too fuzzy. Again, I had so much fun and had a great time learning how to make movies.

Women's Commission Video

Hey there everyone, this is Emma from Girls Making Media just done with a video on the Pima County/Tucson Women's Commision, as always it's been fun editing and creating video and audio files, i found this video especially interesting since it's the on the Tucson's Women's Commission as not many women or young women are aware that there is such thing, so i did a video on the brief history about it so more people can become aware about the Women's Commission, i hope you enjoy!

Hey! Paloma here!

The last session of GMM that I went to; I did a PSA about Teens and Technology. I chose to do this video segment because I saw that many of my peers started to become obsessed with social networking, and because technology has become a VERY big part in our society. I have become accustomed to using different forms of technology, so I decided to research the benefits and drawbacks of technology.

I had a lot of fun in this session! Especially since Margaret and Angel were also here the past few times. :D

Special thanks to Quynn! :)

An Aspiring Filmmakers Experience

My name is Janice Suess, and I am going to write about my very serendipitous experience with Girls Making Media. I am 17 years young and I am currently a senior attending Cienega High School in Vail, Arizona. I was presented with the oppertunity to participate in a workshop called Running and Winning: Women in Polotics. In a rather timely positon, I decided to attend because of recent interest in how government works. My interest sparked through recent events in districe wide buget cuts, along with recent learned knowledge from my government class. Soon before attending the conference, I was presented with a challenging yet amazing oppertunity. My digital media teacher told me that Carol Dow, the leader of the Running and Winning workshop, was looking for a student to film for Girls Making Media. I eagerly accepted the positon. I partially filmed at the conference, but found that my multi tasking skills are not exactly top notch. I transfered my filming duties to another student, and gave my 100% attention into the workshop; a decistion that I am very pleased with. After the conference, I began the process of editing, luckily a process that I am familar with. Using Final Cut Pro, I spent many class hours working on cutting down unnecessary footage and racking up prime b-roll footage. I later wrote up a script that contained all of the criteria that Carol Dow and Quinn, the leader of Girls Making Media, had deemed crutial criteria in the PSA. I continued cutting down footage in order to make it bearably long to watch, and overlayed the footage and voiceover. Today I write from Tucson, where the Girls Making Media editing software is located. I have found my overall experience to be very rewarding, especially because I aspire to direct movies and procede with a career in film. The amount of editing, filming, and networking has provided me with a myriad of invaluable and priceless experience. The learning process that I have endured is one of the best endevours that I have experienced in my short lifetime. Thank you to everyone who has enabled me to complete this PSA and encouraged me to be involved in this great process.
Best of luck to anyone who participates in this wonderful program.
