It is Thursday, and do you know what that means?
That’s right, it’s Throwback Thursday or #tbt moment!
Some of you may have already known that I have left my post as Marcom Officer.
These days, if I am not freelancing or going through the day in desultory fashion, you’ll find me going through job boards. This raises the question on the type of career I am actually looking for.
I decided to go back to basics and asked myself on why I studied journalism in the first place.
I am not eloquent when it comes to conveying my thoughts and ideas, but the initial reason was because I am better at communicating through writing. And my writing attempts have been decent at best. As I progressed further into my communications course, I came to a realisation of how imagery is more powerful than words. But that’s not to say the former can supplant the latter. I am always reminded of how fascinated I was with a certain photograph which was taken during the Vietnam War. No words, but that picture of the “Black Blouse Girl” captured during the My Lai Massacre evoked a sense curiosity of what actually happened.
This is a 1- minute snippet video of the now-defunct flea market for my final university assignment in 2013, highlighting my shallow knowledge about NLE, camera framing and also the drawbacks of using a free editing software. As for the voice-over, let’s not even go there. Also, I still have this doubt that my sources gave their actual names.
