For my 20% time project I knew I wanted to do something with film, but it took me a while to figure out what exactly. I knew making something that was just dry interviews would be way too cliché and boring, but on the other hand going too far on the entertainment would cause it to be uninformative. So, my goal was to ultimately find a balance between the two. My final decision ending up being one big video that I could treat like a film shoot rather than just making a video, the goal being that it would be both entertaining and informative.
