Now I want to talk about the passion for video production I discovered during my year at VES. At the beginning of the year, when I chose my classes, I read Video production as one of the school’s offers. I didn’t know what this subject was about or what it was like but, because I knew that I kind of liked to edit movies and stuff like that, I took it. And it was definitely the best choice ever. We started by learning what different shots, camera angles we could use and how they were called. It was just fun to make movies, record and edit.
After one semester the class ended but a friend and I didn’t want to be done; we wanted to learn more about video production. So he created a new class for the second semester: Video Production 2. And now we didn’t make some weird movies we created ourself – instead we helped our teacher to set up the YouTube channel for VES. After all big events, Basketball games, we made highlight clips that were put on the YouTube channel. It was a lot of fun and it made me think that I maybe want to do this when I’m older.
Two things I want to tell you for the start of your year abroad. During the first week just think that everybody else is new to the school too. And when you first think 9 to 10 month is a long time: It really is going to fly by faster than you can even look.
