When it comes to students at Washington State University, Hayleigh Summers is not your typical Coug.
Overall the classmate interview experience for Sport Management 379 was a positive one. Hayleigh was a fun and interesting person to talk to as well as being easy to work with and efficient. We reserved the studio space in Cleveland 59 and the actual interview part only took us about thirty minutes. We were both very pleased to have rented out this space to conduct our interview because it was efficient and effective in completing the project. Not only were we given a quiet area on campus to interview each other, we also had access to some of the most quality video recording equipment at Washington State for free. If we had not planned ahead to rent out this recording space I think the quality of the final product of our interview would have suffered greatly.
An interesting thing that I did not expect to learn about Hayleigh was how she is interested in living abroad in the near future. She seems to be a very ambitious person, as indicated by the item she revealed to be on her bucket list at the end of the interview. The editing process took a couple hours, which was not too bad considering the scope of the entire project. It also did not take long to record the B-roll video, which I did on my cell phone as I walked around campus on a sunny day. I was pleased to have been partnered with Hayleigh and get to know her through the interview process.
I think the most important thing I learned from this whole project is patience. Patience in matching up your busy schedule with that of another classmate, patience in the actual interview, patience in recording the other footage and ultimately piecing it all together in the final product. Hayleigh ended up being a delightful individual to work with whom I was happy to get to know a little better through our short interview.
