OK. Ignore the catchy alliteration; this tittle couldn’t fit better because I felt there was a personal connection instantly. In my project, I haven’t reached triumph but we all want to get there. Being an entrepreneur consists in planning projects and executing them to make them a reality, and aren’t we all innovators going through this as well?
We’ve networked; we’ve researched; we’ve envisioned; we’ve worked non-stop, sacrificing other plans along the way because: we believe in what we are doing.
I’ve lost valuable files along the way and day-long-consuming interviews that I’ll never get back, I’ve re-written my script more than three times, my laptop broke down the day before the first check, and now, I have to re-record my audio because the tone is inconsistent. I’m increasingly being consumed by my project as we go along—but loving it.
Many may ask why is it that we are all so driven to work in our documentary’s given the evident dedication we demonstrate from morning to noon. Well, It’s actually pretty exciting because I’ve seen us, as a group, vastly evolve our work ethic since the first day we stepped in the Innovation Academy. Yes, we still have to tweak up the culture of learning when we are in class but our ambition for human capital has grown so much in our areas of interest because we understand that what we do is relevant.
In the case of this semester, we’ve all separately grown into the subject of our choice with the experience of finding the story’s ourselves. Now we are able to defend them from a personal point of view, we are slowly becoming experts. Yes, we’ve failed a bunch of times but there are very few people that can say that have planned, directed and edited a documentary at age 16. It’s quite the experience and plus, failure doesn’t mean we stop at a deadline like any other schoolwork, it just tells us we need to reiterate.
