Students doing homework in the Townsend lounge of Illinois Street Residence Hall (ISR)

For assignment #3, I decided to film¬†the multiple facets of student life inside the public undergraduate dorm, Illinois Street Residence Hall (ISR) located on the campus of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It became an interest of mine to see what students were up to on a Thursday night, as well as to see if or how residential life has changed since I last lived in ISR (a couple of years ago, as a freshman). ¬†Students are seen purchasing food, studying, and even playing an instrument in the common areas of the main lounge on the ‘Townsend’ side and the la carte shop CHOMPS.

    Hi Anaja,

    I really enjoyed your video. I really liked the natural sound from the guitar especially. I think you could have improved it by including a greater variety of shots (Wide, Medium Tight). The camera was shaky a few times when you were walking with it so try and keep it steady. Also, try not to use zoom unless it’s really needed. You could also work on having more of a story instead of just a series of shots. Overall great job!
