Making a video on Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam is a learning experience of lifetime for us. We were making a video about him, so we began to study about him. While studying about him, we came to know about the various aspects of his life.
The feeling of meeting the former president, and a distinguished scientist, lifted the spirits of all the BIBS students to a different level, which showed its impact on the quality of work we presented.
While doing the research we came across a huge gamut of projects that he had been associated with which deserves mention in the video. It was a challenge for us to short list the work he has done and his contribution for the country in just 5 to 10 minutes' video. To make our work easier and to use the limited time efficiently, we divided the work among ourselves.
Selecting a song which has an emotional appeal and which synchronises itself with the video, and keeps the audience glued to their seats was another challenge for us. It took us around 20 hours to complete the video. The support from our faculty members at BIBS made us confident about the work.
The most important thing that we learnt while making this video was time management. Working under pressure to manage time under stressful situations is important. Works of Dr. Kalam's life motivated us to think differently.
