The toughest creative part of this project for me was the sound design. I wanted to add some sound efx and background voices that didn't clash with the narrator as he spoke. So I had to edit the narration clip a bit to make the sound efx fit in seamlessly. I think I did an amazing job on this and am incredibly excited to pitch this 26 episode instructional video series for online or tv.
About to cross the finish line here. I'm still working on the title animation and the end credits. This clip has no music attached since I still have the sound design to work on next. I added the crunchy, phonograph record player sound to the entire video which gives it a vintage sound that I love.
Not all heroes wear capes. This series helps to remind us of that. As I prepare for the official launch of episode one (Harlem Hellfighters) of my proposed instructional video series, I am working on tightening up my marketing strategy. The press release is coming out great for a first draft. Still, I will have the PRnewswire team take a look at it and give me some input on how to really make this press release stand out! I'm looking back at some of the major changes I have made to the video so far. I have since removed my hand from the video. Since there was typography in a lot of the scenes, the hand was more of a distraction. I think it's coming out incredible and am extremely excited to finish this pilot episode and spread the word. I am hopeful that you will see the value in the use of this instructional video series in and out of the classroom.
Heroes of color is an instructional video series honoring the achievements of people of color in and out of the military.
