Off-Campus Story

A documentary on Bald Eagle Campground.


I did not add any interview footage as advised, as it is impossible for me to get in touch (face-to-face) with a person of interest to this story, as I only had a week, and was unable to make the long trip to central Pennsylvania. Before commencing with this project, I received permission to interview family members over the phone, and did not realize I was expected to record a phone conversation to use as audio for this project, since I would not want to use the recording of a phone or skype conversation because I do not believe the audio quality would be consistent with the rest of the piece. As both family members I interviewed helped build the campground themselves and could talk for literally days on end about the topic of Bald Eagle Campground, I thought it prudent to glean through and use the facts I thought most important to the story.

However, I did change the manuscript slightly, as I realized I had left out talking about fishing in depth, a main activity at Bald Eagle, and the driving force behind having so many water or stream shots. I also added more pictures of the forest and surrounding area. I only had a very limited time to shoot at the Campground and I probably would have tried to plan more shoot time if I was to continue adding to this video.
