This week is the final week where we as a group were able to come up with a solid concept for the final video presentation. We were able to build on the idea of having an animated version of draw my life video. Along with the ‘Tiny Innovators’ our team ‘Found in Transition’ was able to collaborate and come up with a strong concept and output. It was an interesting journey as we saw how we progressed and were able to put our main idea of hosting workshops and raising funds across. We think we are successful in bringing the message across to our audience. We also have the final text and story board which we can base our video on. The video is coming along really well and we will be done soon.
During this week discussions and a good amount of collaboration along with the other Tiny House team took place. A productive skype call with Shorty our mentor in U.S.A Florida was held and we were able to show her the intro video and she approved it. Once our part of the video is completed we will merge the video with the other team and be able to combine both of them. Preparations for the final presentation are also taking place simultaneously.
As we are approaching the end of the module, we as a group feel that we’ve come a long way. Throughout the weeks we had our ups and downs, but they didn’t stop us on working and moving forward. We learned not only how to work as a group, but also how to listen and accept our cultural differences. This journey definitely has not been an easy one, but it made us stronger not only as a group but also as individuals.
This is a picture of our video in progress:
Hello, dear readers!
Here’s a little update on the progress of our work. This past week we have been working on our final presentation. It is much less stressful now, compared to the beginning of this project – we all understand what we are doing and as the project is approaching the finish line, we are happy that we have a clear solution and a plan for the presentation. We are taking the team role divisions less strictly than our weekly guide suggests. We actually divide the tasks according to our skills and the amount of time each of us can dedicate each week (we respect if somebody in our team has other important matters to attend) and we help each other with the tasks.
As we let you know last week, we settled on proposing the Tiny House community to host workshops on their land to generate an income, with which to sustain them. This is the offer we are going to present to our NGO, and we have made a script and a storyboard to base our presentation on. I’m publishing the storyboard and a summary of our script to give you an idea of our presentation. The final video will consist of 2×2 min presentations of the ideas of both teams, plus an intro and a conclusion, which we are working on together with the Tiny Innovators. We are planning to present our idea in the “draw my life style”, by illustrating the narrator’s monologue on a whiteboard. Here’s an example: https://youtu.be/6yBBO8PzWFI?t=68
And here’s our storyboard:
- The community is planning to buy collectively owned land. We suggest for them to use a 1/3 of that land to host a regular workshop on.
- There are several people in the community, who are experienced tiny house builders. They can use their already acquired skills to present in workshops.
- A lot of people locally are interested in the tiny house movement, but they have no idea how to start this lifestyle. The workshop can host presentations on mundane, but important matters, like how to store possessions, how to cook, etc.
- Attendants can be asked for a donation, a participation fee and/or an investment for the community, which would help make a profit. Catalogues can also be printed and sold.
- The community should spread the word locally via social platforms or local media (newspapers, magazines, TV)
- What do you do once you’ve built a tiny house? Our partner team – Tiny Innovators – have a pretty good suggestion for the tiny house community.
