Today we were given our assignment to create a one-minute video promoting the Jacob’s Institute. Below is a a quick recap (and my humble attempt to use what I learned).

Visual Storytelling: Day 1

This week I’m attending Berkeley’s Visual Storytelling class. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with some really talented people. Today’s top three take aways were:

  • How to prepare for an interview and how to interview
  • How to produce quality audio in any situation
  • How to shoot quality videos

I am vlogging my experience and something I learned in class – it takes time to plan, shoot and edit video. More to come!

Devoción Coffee Adventures 

“Many have said of alchemy, that it is for the making of gold and silver. For me such is not the aim. But to consider only what virtue and power may lie in coffee” – Paracelsus 

Hipsters can be found at this boutique coffee shop. The coffee is imported from Columbia and brewed by the fine people in Brooklyn New York. Latte was bold and full of flavor. Nice people. Descent bathrooms.
