This video was maybe the last major project I did for a group I was involved with during my time in university. SPOP stands for “Student Parent Orientation Program”, and and as much as it’s a program for new incoming freshman, it’s also a program to train the orientation leaders who run it, I was one of those folks. The program “training” to be a SPOP leader was rigorous in many ways, and was commonly known to have a huge impact on staffers that participated in this program. I interviewed over a hundred of these staffers and asked what SPOP meant to them, and presented my video to everyone at the end. This was a very unique and fun project for me because I used an editing technique I had not really tried before, which was to essentially cut my shots in a way that joined everyone’s sentences into a single cohesive message.
