For my capstone, I decided to create a podcast composed of film reviews. This project aimed to answer the question “How can I learn to give a meaningful critique of movies, that would challenge people to think more critically about the media they engage with?” I started working on it in February. I did one episode every week. First I would watch a film, usually on the weekends, then I would write out some bullet points of things I wanted to talk about. On Wednesday, I would record audio and start editing. I would finish editing and publish the episode on the weekends. I managed to create a total of 16 episodes. They range in length from 6 to 20 minutes. From this project, I learned a bit about audio editing, thought not as much as I would have liked. I also learned a lot about how to think about and critique films. This project also helped me hone my verbal communication skills and taught me to better express my thoughts and feelings.
