Open Access Honors Program Thesis
As an electronic media major I wanted to create a thesis that exemplified all of the video editing and creative skills and also the media theories I have learned at the University of Northern Iowa. To me, one of the most interesting topics in the electronic media field is the strong influence amateurs have on mass media, starting at the advent of the radio and through today on the internet. This is what inspired me to create Home Movies. I wanted to combine my interest in amateurism with the skills and knowledge I have learned as an electronic media student. This reflection will include an explanation of Home Movies and why I chose it, the steps taken to complete the project, a description, an assessment of its importance to the documentary industry, and the personal value of the experience. Also attached is the original treatment for the project, which was the original proposal of what I envisioned Home Movies to look like.
