The most important task that was accomplished this week was getting the three different central line placement approaches filmed.  Getting everyone and everything coordinated was not an easy task but everything came together and the actual shoot was successful.


Filming the different approaches was vital to our assignment.  The clients wanted video to be incorporated into the unit but did not have the means to shoot the video themselves.  Since all of the team members come with some video skills, we included it as part of our responsibilities.  The video section of the unit can be incorporated in many other assignments not only in my schoolwork but in my professional career as well.  Expanding my video knowledge to a different level will develop my skill set and hopefully become more marketable.


The strategies, skills and procedures used were effective for this week.  Developing a team plan and executing it worked for us.  With three different ideas coming from each team member, it worked out.  Everyone brings good ideas and we can talk things over until we come to an agreement. 


Because we were under more stress than usual with the video shoot, our ability to work well as a team was beneficial.  We are all learning that we each have different ideas and the most important thing is to listen and work together to come to a solution that we all like. 


The next goal is to edit the videos and work together so that all three videos are consistent and of high quality.  Additionally, we will continue to work on the web-based unit and help each other out as we finish the instruction.
