On Wednesday, September 21, we eagerly awaited the topic for the MIPA Challenge. We were delighted to hear the story topic: “The High Price of Healthcare.” Right away, we started brainstorming, and quickly came up with a golden topic.
We thought a story about cannabis oil would be interesting. Cannabis is controversial for medicinal use. We wanted to put a face on cannabis oil and show that it can help certain individuals.
The Scheers were a great family to interview. We could tell how much they love and adore their daughter, Claire. They want the best for her. They are such a strong and loving family, which only helps them cope with Claire’s health issues.
After we interviewed the Scheers and filmed b-roll, it was time to write the script and edit. The script came together quickly, with a few bumps in the road. We had some trouble with how to arrange the voice overs and interviews, but once we figured it out, it went smoothly.
Editing was the easiest part of our process. We had good shot sequences and an abundance of b-roll, so editing was a breeze.
We are very satisfied with how our story turned out. We hope you are as impacted by the Scheers as we were.
