Fields of Gold Redux!
Tis the season for going back and doing second drafts of digital story or slideshow projects. My original “Fields of Gold” project was a Pro Show Web slideshow featuring a variety of slide transitions–too many images twirling in space, said post commentators Rose Meeker and Peter Jensen. The pacing was too fast and the images too small is what I heard.
My self critique is that the focus on Cheryl and Ryle was an after-thought; it emerged as I was assembling beautiful images, but I didn’t go back and edit for that story. I just let it be what it was.
With these three sources of feedback in mind, I moved the project into the newly refurbished iMovie for iPad (if you use this editor, make sure you have the version built for IOS 7–huge improvements!).
Ryle and Cheryl go for a walk along the old railbed for the mine at Roslyn, WA
