Two months ago the University of Wollongong Alumni office contacted me wanting to do a video of my graduate experience.
The idea was for the video to be shown at the 2012 December graduation ceremonies. Previously they used to show videos of Graduating students, talking about their university experience, but this year they decided to do a video of a few select UOW Alumni instead; the video was to have 6 Alumni members in there and it was to cover where we all are now, what we are currently doing and how our experience at UOW had helped us get there.
The video was shot at my work place and the interview was done just outside of the building (where we had good natural light). They shot the video handheld, using a DSLR, Canon 5D Mk II and because of the occasional traffic noise, we had to constantly re-shoot some of the interview questions.
In the end, they decided to create a few videos instead just one; and determined that three of the Alumni members (myself inclusive) had enough content to have their own video.
Below is the video of My UOW Graduate Experience
It was a great opportunity to help give back to the University and also quite a fun experience shooting the video.
