For my Final Project, I would like to do a story about the Stony Brook Motorsports Club. The Team designs, builds, tests and races an off-road baja vehicle each year. They hold many different meetings throughout the week, so I will have plenty of opportunities to go and shoot, interview them.

I would like to do my story about the club in general, what they do, how hard it is, and maybe concentrate on female members, because it is a popular stereotype that women no far less than men about cars, and engineering stuff.

Kumdo Club

For my Audio Slideshow I have picked the Stony Brook Kumdo Club. Kumdo is a sword-based martial art, but I knew nothing about it. I went to one of their practices and I just observed. I really liked it, and I thought that the audio will come out very good. The only obstacle was the room. It was quite dull and grainy, so it was challenging for me.

I think what helped me a lot is the fact that I went to Kumdo club practice about four times. Every next time, I would find something new that I could include in my piece. Overall, I think it was a great experience.
