Final Focus Productions, week 15

I spent what time I had this week working on the CC project, which is due May 21st (lucky me).  I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what codec the video files were in, and once I had figured that out, I spent way too much time trying to fix the files.  I edited 2 songs together, but most of the detail work needs to be finished, and I have a meeting today about parts of the project being far out of scope for what we can reasonably deliver on Friday.  (12 hrs)  Next week will be my last week interning with FFP, but I'll be continuing to help with projects going forward.

Week 5, 10 hours worked. 
I went to work and Lars wanted to re-record one of the songs that we recorded the week before and 3 new songs to add to the "Live Show" youtube video I was editing. We recorded those songs. I started putting the new songs into the video I was putting together when I realized the songs didn't sound cohesive enough so I went back into the program and fix that. Lars also said since I had a mask on people couldn't tell if I was singing or not so I put background vocals in all the songs. I put all the audios back into the video editing system. I'm going to finish editing the video when I go in next week. He also brought to my attention a future project we will be working on. A freestyle rapper tragically passed away and his family wanted to make his raps into songs so we will be creating a chorus and getting in contact with animators to animate the rapper in his music videos.

Week #14: 11/22 - 11/30 (10 hours 30 minutes)

For my last week of internship work, I sent Sherri and Brian the procedures for using Music Supervisor which is quite a process from adding the artist and album to uploading the music itself to putting in the metadata for each song. Yet, there were some helpful hacks to make the process go much smoother by the end. Then, I went back into Music Supervisor and added more songs in there and updated CODA to show that those songs were added into Music Supervisor.
