Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: Graduation is coming, and I know I need to set a goal, and I have not been able to figure it out yet. I want to focus on spreading awareness through visual media . . . I made a documentary for my final project in an Ocean Economy class, and I loved it . . . I was the only one who did a video in the class--everyone else did a ten-page paper . . . we chose a policy and had to focus on two effects. I chose the expansion of the Marine National Monument in the Pacific remote islands, and how it affected the commercial fishing industry, and how it affected conservation . . . ten interviews edited into fifteen minutes . . . in Final Cut Pro . . . it is hard to connect other people's words with your own in-between . . . you have to take other people's words and cut them up into this story arc to keep people interested . . . I developed a methodology . . . going through the clips and writing down keywords . . . post-it notes on the wall . . . each interviewee I thought of as a paragraph . . . In my future, I will probably not write as much with a pen and pencil, as in school, but grants, and contracts, and stuff like that, and a lot of e-mailing, I am sure.
