I learned that a lot of collaboration and communication goes into producing a community event. My production group (Documentation) contributed all of the videos that were playing on the screen at the Chula Vista Zine Fest. We also worked closely with the social media group to organize images and videos for them to post. The things I specifically did within the production group was, I made the CVZF Coming Soon video, helped with filming the “What Is A Zine Video”. I also helped in organizing the different photos and renaming them. I think that I did a really good job of applying the critique I got from from Mrs. Nuvia and Mrs. Hood-Esparza about my first draft of my video. It was challenging for me to communicate with my group because a lot of us felt like the workload for one person was given to 8 so it was hard to figure out who was going to do what, and to think of something for each person to do. It was also challenging to find time to edit, because we can’t use the computers at school to edit videos so I would have to find time outside of school, which was challenging with managing all of the other things I needed to do. I think that the zine fest was partly successful and partly not. Successful because I think overall as a team our final products looked really good and we all had tables that looked nice as well as collages. But I think it wasn’t as successful in the amount of people that we had show up, I think we expected it to be a lot bigger and that we were going to sell a lot more zines and be able to talk to more people. So I think for the zine fest next year they need to market more, not just on social media or with flyers around the school. We should’ve gone out and put flyers around Eastlake and downtown Chula Vista so that more people would’ve known about it. I also think that next year they should try to have it in a place with more foot traffic, so even if people didn’t know about it they still might come in and look.
