preparation before the show (safety)

So with my team we where planing to do a run through on the Monday when we had the show on Wednesday and didn’t go well because only me and Papi showed up, we managed to connect with the parts we had to do but we weren’t able to conclude everything because we where still missing part of the script but we spoke with the rest of the group via Facebook to keep in contact and make sure they would do the right things, That went ok. I do believe there was a lack of conclusion within the team and bits where rushed. we then organised to meet on the Tuesday so we could do more and time it and that came round to be okay, the only problem there was still things to be done on the script and we where worried of how it would work out with the guest because we weren’t sure how long they would talk for so we allocated enough time for her  and if she didn’t speak much we would be able to continue the chat with the last Documentary  so we all relaxed to that idea. We also made sure the day before we had here in there was no dangling wires or stuff lying on the floor or any risk of any problems to make her come in, we also made sure she had a pair of headphones so if she wanted she could hear the whole show.



I have decided to put background music to the documentary. I wasn’t sure of what to put I wanted to put something that would be pretty neutral between rap and grime so i went with (2pac going through changes) but then i heard the documentary as a whole and thought the music being the same the whole time makes you zone out. So i decided to put lots of different beats and the best part of this is that every time the documentary talks about grime there will be a grime beat and every time its talking about hip hop there is a hip hop beat.  That has totally changed the documentary and improved it massively. I have also done all the music for the show and uploaded them into the system so that when we are speaking we will have some background music and it wont sound dead if some one forgets something or messes it up. I have add a few instrumentals  just so that the show can vary and it switches a bit

Group Chat

I have had a few problems with my group lately because I have finished all of my work this includes the background music and my documentary and this was a lot before some of the people in the group but exactly on time for my dead lines and to meet the requirement but it seems like a problem for some people in my team. The story is that, I was in college studying like I’m in most days working on my project as usual but i usually come in, in the morning because I’m busy in the afternoon so I leave towards 1pm and one day Andrew (that is part of my team) asks me to stay and wait 1 or 2 hours for the rest of the team to come in so that we can have a meeting. I am usually busy the afternoons because I have work or other issues so I wasn’t able, that day also we haven’t scheduled to meet up or anything that day because if we did even the day before i could of made sure i was in for that time but nobody told me anything. The point of this is he really insisted on that and asked me to help with the teams work.I’m not saying I don’t want to help because i want to and I am because I’m doing my part for the shows script but it’s not my task , I tried to explain that I couldn’t stay because of me being busy so after a bit of back and forth he calms and lets me go  but then I receive the following messages from the team that I think weren’t nice

and I replayed with

Number 2.PNG

Then this Number 3.PNG

Then this

Number 4.PNG

so I replayed Number 5.PNG

I was really sorry to hear that from him, because naturally he is going through a really hard moment but I’m not as open as he is and I’m going through  a very tough time myself and i Replayed withNumber 6.PNG

so that’s how the conversation went. I hope that explains why there are some problems but we all are working together and I am working as much as i can to help but just because i finished my work and I’m trying to do some of the script with the rest of the group they want me to do more I don’t really think it’s fair and i can’t take a day off work because i need to help with something that wasn’t assigned to me in first place and the person that has to do it, cant do it because they have to work well instead of asking me to take my time that means time off my work why don’t the other people take time of there work so that they can fur-fill there commitments like I have. Also I think that if someone writes a script for someone else and they are not happy with it and ask to change it, it’s going to be a waste of time. I want to make sure my point comes threw correctly that is I want to help the team as much as I can when I can because I know they are behind but if i’m not able to do it for reasons you can’t force me to do something.

meeting with team


I have asked the team to meet again and everyone got involved in it really quickly. I think they did it because everyone wanted to know where everyone is at also I thought this meeting was really good because we agreed with most of the stuff being said and we set dates for the finish of the documentary’s so that we can practise because I do feel some people may panic when the time comes but hopefully everything will be under control. there has been some fall backs such as with Andrew didn’t write the script of the documentary and hasn’t started yet but i don’t think that will be a problem  because everyone has interviews and if they haven’t finished doing them all they have at least set a date for it so nothing to worry about also we want to make sure we have a person in to talk to during the show and i believe that is being organised pretty well because various people have offer to bring in someone so that if they cant come we should have back up. also the Interview lasted an hour and i think the vibes are pretty good this time and everyone had a say on something so really enjoyed it the link is below if you would like to hear it.

Information on swot analysis, Team work and the 1 hour show.

so for my swot analysis i think my strength are my editing skills and my comunication with the rest of the team i do also think my documentary is coming out pretty well so i’m going to keep up with that for my weaknesses i think it’s the team work with the team but not from my part because i think people could work better and agree more on different aspects but naturally thats normal people have different ideas and should stand for them but sometimes some people should take a step back and go with other ideas because i do feel i do that a lot and people don’t seem to work with me but i believe i still have to get on with them because thats what you would do i don’t feel there should be any heavy arguing as much there is in our team but apart from that i think people are doing a good work also my second weakness is that i won’t be able to be in next week  so I’m trying to have everything ready for this week and as soon as possible i do think this is also a threat and maybe even the thing i was talking about the team that could be a threat i also think another threat is people getting worried when we will have to present the one hour show because thats what happened for the 30min show and i think it ruined the experience for most people. but the opportunities are to post all this information and share all of it through social media and get people interested in it also the social media helped me a lot with getting interviews so certainly social media is an opportunity to use even more to get people interested or involved and things like instagram, Facebook, Twitter and snap chat are all perfect for this also for the 1 hour show it would a great opportunity to have everything ready early so we can practise before hand so we don’t get things wrong on the day. Also Andrew done a great job with starting to make the template for the script so we are on top of things i will have to start to write a script and hopefully everything will go well. In all i think evaluating all i done i think I’m at a good point i think i can finish everything pretty soon with another couple of days  we have had more communication through Facebook that was good so people have been sending the minutes for the meeting so i hope i will be able to download them soon but if you can’t find them here you will find them in the blogs of the rest of the team  i will comment on them to say what i think  in the end i believe everything is going ok

Catching up with the Group

I didn’t hear from the group in the last week so i messaged all of them to see if everything was ok and to see where they where at and also to tell them where i was at. most of them responded so that was good then we all started talking of the task’s and roles  like who had to bring the guest ? who would do the music for the show ? what shall we write for the script ? so it was pretty good people started communication again I also picked the task to put a background music that could suit everyone but i will do more so that we can all choose which is the best there seems a lot of team work involved i’m a bit worried people will leave things to too late i have started working on things a bit early because i won’t be in next week but i will still do all the tasks that will be given to me I hope everyone gets along fine.  I am planing to edit the interview i have and start doing the script for the documentary and hopefully get my third and last interview after that i will focus on the script for the hour long show.

Group meeting two

Group meeting

Above there is the link to Papi’s evaluation of our second meeting today, that lasted about an hour. I thought the meeting was really good with some down falls and mis interpretation. I thought the out come was pretty good to start writing a script so that we can be a head of the game I also thought is was really good we where agreeing with having a guest involved in the whole thing, but i do think there has been some mis understanding because I wanted to make sure the time was allocated fairly between the documentary’s just so that everyone gets chances of asking and answering questions but i think that got mis understood with a more individual work scheduled, I was just trying to get an idea of fairness between everyone and also when talking of bringing more than one guest it was simply if the guest that we have chosen for the show wouldn’t be able to come on the day it would be good if there are more ready just in case. i think i was ex-stream in saying that everyone could have a guest but I think if we have a back-up plan for that it would be good just having more than one guest just in case it would be good. also Ida and Kelly weren’t in but i don’t think they are back on stuff but hopefully they agree with decisions made but any inputs are always wanted. I feel there was a lot of discussions with good points the meeting lasted a bit longer than expected but worth it I still think the group prospective is still pretty shadowed but I will happily work a long with the team if that’s what they want to do. (meeting lasted an hour)


Group chit chat


In the group we had some chit chat here and there that was pretty good to keep on thing also for the people that aren’t there on the day it’s crucial so i think these un booked chit chats are really good as long as the whole team is aware because even if a person is not there i don’t think they should feel less part of the team and i think that is shadowed a little but surely we have looked at this and we are trying to make everyone involved so its fair on everyone. we also spoke of ideas which we have for our documentary’s and it pretty good we get some feedback from our group. these chit chats are very informal and don’t usually last long i think we are all on a very similar page even though some people are off sometimes i think thats normal.

First meeting for the final package

I think the first meeting was pretty good there was a good exchange of ideas, we had seen different point of views and tired to go for the best ideas. There was Papi, Andrew and Me we where missing Ida and kelly but but after they have agreed on our decisions so it matched of perfect.We looked at what we should talk about and what we would base our documentary’s on  and we went for  entertainment and music which i felt was really good for the idea I had. (The one about rap and grime) we also made the decision on what radio to go for more or less and it was radio one  but then I believe Papi and Andrew spoke to Ida and decided to go for Radio Scotland. They then called me to ask if it was ok, I was fine with new out come just would of wanted to be called to  make the decision but I believe the I can hit the documentary from a different angle to target the radio Scotland i believe its going to be a good challenge to go against. The meeting lasted  24.45 min it was on the 21st of February and I believe was pretty good  out come.
