All of yesterday was spent filming and editing my 3-Minute Thesis (3MT) video. I submitted it at around 10:30pm last night.
After attending the two required 3MT workshops titled Crafting your 3MT narrative on 21 Feb and Designing an Impactful 3MT slide on 7 March, I had worked on a rough script a couple of days ago. However, I thought that I didn't have enough time to film and edit the video to submit by the original deadline of March 17. Therefore, I had made the decision to put it off and do it next year.
I changed my mind after receiving an e-mail on Tues this week from the Interdisciplinary Graduate Office informing us they had extended the deadline to March 31. I decided there and then that I would spend the whole day, the next day, working on filming and editing it. It was kind of impromptu because I had already made plans to work on a different set of tasks for Wed.
My video is almost 4 minutes long. I had asked the IGP admin for some leeway in the time limit, specifically an extra minute, because it takes takes longer to produce a presentation in a signed language than in a spoken language. This is due to the visual-gestural modality of sign languages and the oral-aural modality of spoken languages. I'm glad they were understanding when I asked and accommodated my request.
Looking at the final version below, I see a few things I could have improved on.
I have an endless to-do list waiting to be tackled though.
So, I'm really glad to be done and dusted! 😊
