Spending hours staring at a computer screen factors into my dream career, but it’s not just playing games. I would love to make a living by going out into the world, meeting exotic and interesting people with important stories to tell, and communicating their stories to the rest of the world through video. I would do substantial research to choose these people, and then travel to immerse myself in their culture and plights. Using a lightweight camera, bright light set, and microphones, I would interview the specific person and the people he or she associates with, then get b-roll footage of the area that connects to what I learn in the interviews. Once all the footage has been captured, I would use editing software to put together an in-depth look on the person’s life while highlighting a major issue that correlates to him or her, using personal information to find a bigger picture. Hoping to make a difference in the lives of viewers, I would repeat the process until the voices of the people I focus on are heard.
