This Honors Research Project at The University of Akron is one that will serve as a learning experience relative to my Major and will also become a useful tool to show my expertise to potential employers. My project is a filmed and edited mini-documentary on homelessness in the city of Akron. The link to the project can be found on page 15.
Through this project, I am hoping to bring more awareness to the issues of homelessness in Akron, and some of the different services and programs that are assisting those who are in need. I will be doing this by interviewing people who with some of the different services and organizations in the area, interviewing a knowledgeable reporter from the Akron Beacon Journal, and interviewing some of the people who are currently homeless or are using the services provided for the less fortunate in Akron. Then, I will infuse those interviews with B-roll footage, voice overs, and music.
