“1. What was your Inspiration?
Answer: I was inspired to make this film because I liked the idea of hunting for treasure in my backyard and thought it was interesting to find clues to local history. For example, our neighbor’s grandfather was a carpenter and built our house and we think we found some of his tools. I also thought others might find this hobby interesting and I wanted to share it.
2. What Interesting techniques did you use?
Answer: The most interesting part of making this film was the video editing. I have never used video editing software before and it was fun testing out all of the different editing options including different scene transitions.
3. What was the Most difficult part of making the film?
Answer: The most difficult part was trying to hold the camera steady during filming. I used an old iPod to film. Editing the film was also difficult as it was my first time trying to edit video. It took a long time to learn how to use the software.
4. What does it mean to you to be a finalist in the competition?
Answer: I’m really excited to be a finalist because I have never been in a film competition before and it is an honor to be considered!”
