Extending my project:
I did not manage to finish my project during this cycle as I planned. I had a good foundation and idea for my project but it lacked structure and proper planning. I should have created very specific/smaller short-term goals and a more clearly defined final product. This way could've also realized sooner how much deeper this project would be and how long the research would take. Procrastinating also played a very big part in my not completing the project. I really need to work on time management and making the most of even the couple minutes I have between meetings for example.
I really want to continue this project, but I'm taking a break from projects for the next cycle so I'll continue the cycle after.

I've been interested in cinematography for a while but this project has made me consider even more aspects of movie-making and I have a much deeper appreciation now for the amount of work it takes to
