That final project was the most enjoyable thing I’ve done in a long time. I have always had idea’s for stories to tell or plots to weave and traditionally I would either start writing them down with the hope that I would one day finish them and they would just go unfinished or I would start incorporating them into my Dungeon’s and Dragons games, but that never turned out how I wanted it to because in D&D it’s the groups collective story, not just yours. This is the first time I’ve actually started and completed a story, even if it was a short story. And that makes me feel good.
The story of Gareth and the Hunter is one of the idea’s I’ve had floating around in my head for a long time, since about October 2014 when I first got into the lore of the Destiny universe. The execution of the story here was not exactly the original vision I had in mind for the story, but technical limitations and time constraints prevent me from making an entire expansion for Destiny. Regardless of the results distance from the original vision, I’m proud of the story I’ve woven here.
This course turned out to be a good bit more interesting than I originally thought it would be. I actually had fun with some of these assignments. This last one obviously being the most fun to make. Learning how to do audio and video editing has always been one of the things that I’ve wanted to learn but never had the push to start and this course was the push I need. That being said, I would not have taken this course had I know what it was going to be like. At least, I wouldn’t have taken it this summer. Having to juggle this course and a full time job turned out to be a whole lot harder than I’d have thought. So, I would have told past me to wait till I have the time to actually devote to this class because I fully believe I’d have enjoyed it more if I had had time to smell the roses.
