Dubbing Video of A Family’s Daily Life in A Pandemic (G7BG3)

Hello, Assalamualaikum!

This is a PBL article written by group 3 from 7B, discussing matters about the project-making process. Think of it as a written behind-the-scenes.

We have Zayan, as our group leader, as well as Asha, the honorable vice leader. Our other respectable members are Qin, Kyan, and Alisa.

For this PBL Project, our group did a video dubbing project, about a family’s daily life in a pandemic. Zayan, as the leader of our group, decided on our roles and tasks for each member. He was to lead the group, guide them in the right direction, act as a consultant for any problems the group may face.

Asha as the vice leader was to also lead the group, in a way that is identical to the actual leader. She was also to assume the role of “acting leader” should the leader not be able to fulfill his duties for any reason. In many ways, this role is similar to being the leader itself.

Qin, Kyan, and Alisa’s tasks were to contribute toward the video gathering process, the script-making process, as well as record lines for the actual dub.

To make the project, we read the guidelines then we divide the task, using the guideline document as a reference for what we can and cannot do, as well as which things are necessary and which are optional.

We started deciding on a topic, because the theme “Family” has been decided from the guideline. Then we just as quickly began to do the planning. This took quite an amount of time to finish because we didn’t quite know how to insert certain ideas into a casual-family setting. Another reason why it took a quite time to finish our project, was also because procrastination. 

Some of those problems persist even right now, at the time of writing this article. After planning, we set on to write the script, which we also had some problems with, namely inserting some of the ideas in the planning. Furthermore, we had to modify the planning a bit to suit the theme of the video dub, even if such modifications were past the intended deadline. 

Planning took so long that we didn’t even realize we had 2 and half weeks or less to complete the whole project. Luckily we had discovered this, and quickly made the initiative to work on it, no less than 4 hours per day on the project. It was going to be a race against time. Gradually a lot of progress had been made on the project, and ultimately this way of working… worked!

And we were able to complete the project on time, even days before the deadline, and even before some other groups. This was our 2nd time doing a PBL project and I think it went very smooth, for only our second time. (That or my previous PBL project was horrendous 🙁 ).

I learned that as a leader, I must find ways to lead correctly. Contrary to what it seems, being a leader isn’t as simple as just; “ok member 1, u do this. Member 2, u do that”. 

You have to know your members, to avoid misunderstanding and internal conflict. You never know how your fellow member might react to what you say. If you do not exercise caution to this, it will likely cause backlash and internal conflict, which hinders progression on the project-making.

If I say for example: “Guys, we need to really finish quickly. The deadline is looming. Please do your parts and extra contributions. If you don’t, I am reporting you to Mr Syarif and your grades are getting deducted”, best case scenario your members may react: “Oh no, the deadline is looming near and my grades are getting deducted if i don’t do my contributions, i must do them now!”.

In a worst-case scenario, they may react: “Who does this guy think he is? Commanding me in such a rude way, he’s not even older than me/he’s even younger than me. You’re not my parents, keep your mouth zipped.” (Again this is just an example, but you get what I mean.)

You need to find a way to command them in such a way that motivates them, instead of creating aggression within them. Oftentimes, that is hard to do when your members don’t interact as much. 

I feel like that is the case for this group in my opinion. Besides me (Zayan) and the vice leader, the other members don’t communicate enough for me to understand what pleases and offends them. 

This made my leading experiences into sort of a blind state in where one mistake and could create a large conflict within the group. For sure, I don’t like conflict. 

Thank you for those who still reading this article, even past the rant I made about the burden of being a leader. If you’re interested in the video dubbing project we have made.
