Not much has changed about my ideas.
To be completely honest, I think I would rather work on the project alone. My schedule is starting to go crazy now that the end of school is approaching and I kinda need to work on my own timeline so I can manage the rest of my classes. But, I’m open to ideas or collaborating as long as things are done in a timely fashion.
In my previous post, I talked about the possibility of Chernobyl, documentaries on 80’s stars and where they’re at now, and coronavirus. If I went along the coronavirus lines, I’d like to talk about vaccines, how they work, how viruses are structured, and then the impact of social distancing. Maybe I could get some doctors and healthcare workers to interview and work that in.
Another thing is that I am more recently feeling a strong passion for talking about the virus, even though I think most of us are tired of it. My mom, an ICU navy nurse, was just deployed on the USNS Comfort to go to New York. I admire what she is doing, but it’s really hard on my family, especially after having her gone on other mobilizations before. And, she’s older now and it’s getting harder for her to do these things, especially intensive care.
We also just found out that instead of a 2 month deployment, it’s likely going to be through the end of the fiscal year, and that just sucks.
So, I was thinking it might be good to channel my emotions through the project and make something important and informative.
Ideally, I’d like to make a video or a podcast. I think the use of images through videos can be extremely important when it comes to the virus, or even the celebrity documentary or Chernobyl. It’s one thing to talk about something, but the visualization of emotional events makes it more powerful. For example, the abandoned city of Pripyat from Chernobyl:
Thoughts? Ideas? Criticisms? Let me know. My ears (or eyes?) are open!
