Hello everyone! As you may have read in the previous post, Jersey Alternative has begun working with 808 Sounds & Snares and Bridging the Gap to create a collaborative campaign helping promote VH1’s Save the Music Foundation. So far, our campaign’s collaborative process has been going really smoothly. Since all of our sites are centered around music, it was really easy for us all to agree to help promote VH1’s Save the Music. We all have a pretty good idea of the direction we want our campaign to go, and I think we’re going to use our own unique interests and talents to make fun, informative, and inspiring A/V projects and guest posts. We’ve achieved two milestones so far. The first is our ability to work together seamlessly, brainstorming and making decisions as a group without any speedbumps. In addition to deciding to promote Save the Music, we all have a pretty good idea of what our individual A/V projects will be (stay tuned for those!). The second milestone is that we’ve been able to work together remotely, using Google Apps. We’ve made a brainstorming/storyboard outline using Google Docs, which has been invaluable to us since everything is saved to the cloud and we’re all able to work on one document at the same time, no matter where we are.
Despite what we’ve achieved so far, we still have a long way to go. Over the next few weeks, I’m looking forward to all of us filming, recording and editing our A/V projects. We’ve all recently learned how to use both Screencast-O-Matic and Audacity, so we will probably use them to record any videos or podcasts we make and then post them to either YouTube or Soundcloud. Our final milestone is completing our write-up detailing our creative process, what we did to reach our audience, and critiquing our work.
Stay tuned to all of our sites over the next couple of weeks for more updates!
