When trying to come up with an idea of how to create a video for my CAP 105 class, I was puzzled. I didn’t know if I should try to make up a tutorial or shoot a movie of some sort. I was pretty stumped until I thought about some of the videos that were taken over a cruise I had recently been on over the week of the New Year. After getting permission to use the “old footage” I quickly went back to watch the videos that I had. After coming up with a rough sketch of a story board on paper, I download a free trial of Final Cut Pro onto my MacBook Air and started making my first video.
Our group of 14 climbed Duns River Falls and went bobsledding in Jamaica, swimming with sting rays in Cayman Islands, and relaxed on the beach on Mexico (no video footage). After sailing out of Miami, FL the Carnival Breeze took us all out of the frigid state of Michigan for a week in the sun. Enjoy my final video, I hope it can inspire you to travel, try new things, and make you feel like you are in the Caribbean yourself!
