Creative Project Rough Draft

My research topic is about WeChat’s functions and the impact of WeChat on the Chinese people’s social relationships. For my creative project, I am filming a documentary about the Chinese international students’ opinions on WeChat.

I have currently asked five Chinese international students (3 males and 2 females) to help me film. The question list below are the questions I asked during the interviews.

WeChat Documentary

  1. Introduce (Name, Where in China they are from, and When they came to the US)
  2. Describe WeChat in one sentence.
  3. How often do you use WeChat?
  4. Differences between WeChat and other social media platforms? Talk about WeChat’s functions like WeChatpay, Didi, Mobike, and more, and which one do you use the most?
  5. How do you think WeChat has changed culture and social relationships in China?
  6. What are your feelings about monitoring of WeChat in China?
  7. Coming to the U.S., how has your opinion about WeChat changed?

The link below is one of the five raw footages that I have currently. I have to organize and edit the clips through next few weeks.

The photos below are photos of other interviewees.

I am currently thinking of how to edit my documentary. The composition seems a little off for me, but my film professor also said it seems okay. I want to match the video style similar to WeChat’s. I’ll see where my style heads to depending on my editing skill.
