So everything for me planned out pretty well for next semester. My goal was to get a internship for my last semester.Im happy that I was offered an internship at upsidebusiness. Which provide services for consulting, websites, social media, video production and more. This is perfect for me because I believe this will give me an opportunity to increase my capacity in ever area I work in. I really want to gain experience and learn and who knows hopefully gets hired.
Not only will I learn but possibly help change there image and branding. I want to be asset to the company not just an intern. However, I desire to bring my innovative ideas and help transform with my new skills.
As for final project I decided to partner up with Larrisa Lamothe . We plan to build a online network.
Description of our online network
SAR ( Spark a Revolution) website:
The objective is to create a platform for Christian or inspirational creatives (film makers, musical artists, poets, graphic designers, animators, etc) to share their work, as well as inspirational speakers (preachers) share messages 10-15 min. (max time). Videos will be submitted to our emails and the ones that we approve of will be embedded to the website. Creatives have two options on how to send us their material, they can either dropbox their videos or upload it to vimeo and send us the link. The speakers are only allowed to send us their Youtube links (since the ones we contacted only use Youtube)
The reason for this website is because, there really is not a platform for those of the Christian faith to display their work and interact with others who are interested in the same thing. The website will be designed by Lakeya (me) and I will focus on the video content. As for video content, every two weeks we will feature one creative and one speaker. There will be a 2-3 interview/ doc discussing their life and how they made it to this point in life. All the videos will be recorded and edited before the actual launch of the website.
- Once the semester begin we will already have establish the website development.
- During the course of the semester we will be shooting short documenaries of our guess and thoughs that being featured on the website.
- Advertisments to build up the momentum of the project to get people excited and speculating about this network.
- Social cam and youtube commercials, utilizing social media to gain an audience
- By mid semester Larissa and I should have the site and documentaries (partly done)
- Last but not least the launch of the site.
Example websites of setups
Rocnation – The set up of rocnation is exactly how we want the site to be, visual presence. It has an easy access platform to everything, music, videos, news and more.
Black Gospel – Black Gospel is about the same idea
Just to name a few this is not a streaming site all videos will be upload and embedded in the website. We will provide time frames to the clients when it would be uploaded.
Tools we will need:
- Web hosting ( Godaddy which I already have established)
- Domain name
- Cameras and lighting for our documentaries
- Vimeo account
- Social media ( Twitter, Instagram, Facebook)
In addition, we will be advertising and branding this online network by the end of the semester hoping to have over 5,000 views and people coming to our site. This will not stop for final project but we plan to extend it.
My digital presence:
I pretty much use my freelancing company as my identity, to keep consistency. My company is called Creative Revolution Media. Most people Identify there selves with there companies they own, not nessecarily have there name branded. All though it is more preferable that I should have my porfolio with my name on it I don’t. I developed a twitter, facebook and website under the name creativerevolutionmedia because im trying to brand and expand the company, as well as I forstated keep consistency in building my digital presence.
I currently have Facebook, twitter and instagram. I have more publicity and more knowledgable on facebook then any other. I do believe I need to expand my digital presence. Most of the time when I communicate as Lakeya Johnson on facebook it’s personal, it’s my personality.
