From flying birds to hot air balloons, from windmills to painted trees, from nature to stars. In the beginning it seems really boring with the birds and the hot air balloons but when there is the painted trees it seemed really interesting. So the shots in this video were medium shots, close-ups, and a lot of Wide shots.
Hey guys! So since Martin Luther King Jr. birthday was this week monday we decided to do the 3rd STN practice. The STN for this month I think we did much better than the past practices we did. Today I’m going to talk to you about what worked in our music video, what we did in our music video. And I’m going to tell you what I want to be in the Crazy 8’s.
So as you know I’m working in the music video team with Herenui Punua, Shaelyn Tavares, And Mia Thompson. So I think that we did really good in this 3rd practice for music video because we got really good shots and we finally got some lip-syncing in this video and Mr.M really liked this video, He also said that the last 2 videos that we did needed work but now we accomplished what he asked us to do and I we’re ready for the STN convention. With the 3rd video we had some trouble because we were mostly comfortable with love and fun songs but this time the song was about friendship we got the song “A Gift of A Friend” by Demi Lovato this song was in Tinkerbell in the movie “The Lost Treasure”.
We had some issues with thinking what we should do after every shot that we took. We also had some issues with the way we were filming because we could see our shadows in the shots and we didn’t want to show that in the video. Another thing that we had issues with was that we didn’t treat the group really nicely because we were stressed out and we thought we were going to run out of time.
To be honest we don’t really get along most of the time because we are mostly stressed out and we mostly yell at each other but we get along well when there is not an STN practice I think that is really funny. But in our music video we went through a lot of shots in our video because of the shadows in the shots. But even though we kind of yell a lot at each other we do a great job with our video.
So with a four man group you don’t really realize that you might yell at each other just because of this video but we yell at each other because it’s important to us. Well working as a team really works to accomplish something and I think that is mostly important to everybody. I almost forgot to say which group I would like to be in, So for Crazy 8’s I would like to be in the film group.
Hey guys! So this is another timelapse video and you have take a look at all of the focused shot there are in this 2 minute 18 second video. This 4K footage is 4,096 pixels across 4K is a way of measuring movie resolution according to the internet. But I like the clips in this video such as the star scenes and the mountain scenes in this video. I gotta say that this video might be the best video Tom Lowe actually made.
Hey guys! So today I’m going to review my 2nd quarter goals and then I’m going to tell you what my third quarter goals are going to be. So as you know third quarter for us at CKMS we are asked to do a Public.Service.Announcement. For this project we have to work alone and be creative with the video and hopefully everybody will see your PSA.
First, So as you know my goals from last quarter were to take Interviews better by making it focused on the person and adjust the camera in the right way, to Edit better, and to make sure my audio is better in interviews. As you know last quarter I accomplished the Interviews, and the audio. Also besides that I have learned a lot more in this media productions class.
Next, So this year I’m going to try the editing goal again. This quarter I’m going to make my own PSA as you know so I’m going to edit a 30 second video so we will see if I can edit better this quarter. Also this quarter I’m going to make sure the audio is perfect in this video this quarter.
Then, In this quarter I’m planning to film in a better way but not in the interview way. In this quarter with the psa I’m going to aim my shots just like B-roll shots but much longer. Also in those shots I’m going to focus much better.
Finally, Also in this quarter I’m going to try to get my PSA entered in the olelo competition. It is a very hard job to get entered in the olelo competition because you have to edit good and great shots. Also if you get entered into the olelo competition you have to get at a certain time limit.
In conclusion, All of these goals may seem easy to accomplish because it’s just media goals. My opinion is that goals seem kind of hard especially if there is editing on your goal list because you can only do it often but you can do it every quarter. Well we will see if I can accomplish all of these goals this quarter because I’m going to be working alone so we will see if I can accomplish Editing, Filming, and getting entered to the olelo competition.
Is this fake? well this video is called "timelapse" it takes place mostly on a mountain and what I like about this video is that it mostly shows the night stars. I like this video because i like to see timelapses that takes place at night I like the night version because you don’t see those things when you're sleeping. I don’t like the day version because we see everything during the day time.
Hey Guys! so this week we were told to think about doing a vlog or known as a video blog. so for this week's blog I’m going to talk to you about the positives and negatives about what i think of a vlog. I’m also going to talk to you about what I think about if I want to do a blog for the rest of the year or not.
First, some positives i think of a vlog is that we get to hold on the camera more often and we can edit more that often too. Instead of doing two blogs per week now we can only post one blog and this way we don’t have to type 6 paragraphs per week. another positive thing that I think about a vlog is that you can make a video.
Next, some negatives about a vlog is that it might take you a long time to edit, to film, and to include the audio especially if you're using the osmo, The osmo is a hand held drone. another negative I think about vlog’s is that you have to use most of your time and as I said you have to film, edit, and make sure the audio is correct. Another negative is that you have to explain about a topic that relates to media and you also have to write down what you’re going to say in your vlog.
Finally, I’m going to talk to you about if I want to do a blog for the rest of the year or not. So I was thinking and when I was thinking there were some positives and negatives but I think that we should do vlogs because it’s going to help us become better at editing, and filming. it’s going to help me a lot because i learned how to edit already but I want to learn more.
In conclusion, both vlog and blogs are challenging because it take up most of your time. but when you do it over, and over again then you will get better at it. so what i’m saying is to try your best and practice hard.
Hey guys so this song has been stuck in my head lately and i don't know if you ever heard this song but it’s amazing and the shots in this music video are awesome. I like this music video because this music video is different than others, it takes place in an abandoned house also it has a good story that matches the lyrics of this song. I also like this song because it’s different than others and it has a story to it that makes sense but is strange. Also the shots in this video because there is a lot of close up’s in this video, there is also medium, and wide shots in this video.
Hey guys! so this week we were told to think of three 3rd quarter project topics for the p.s.a. or Known as public service announcement. So today I'm going to talk to you about the three topics that I chose. so the first one that I chose is taking assessments seriously, my second is start living healthy, and the third one is meth: not even once.
First, one psa I’m willing to try next quarter is called taking assessments seriously, I’m going to make this 30 second video interesting so other people can take assessments seriously. In this video I’m going to have a couple of students to be in the video one person showing that when you take a test seriously you will have a chance of succeeding and the other person not taking it seriously and turns out failing. another thing I’m going to do for this psa is to catch some attention so people would really try their best on the tests they take.
Next, another psa I'm willing to try next quarter is called start living healthy for this psa I'm going to show that living healthy can make you become more active instead of being lazy and watch tv every day this way you will be active and have a better life in the future. So in this psa I’m going to have one person who will eat junk foods and another person who is active and healthy. another thing in going to do for this video is to make people become healthy instead of becoming lazy.
Finally, the third psa that I'm willing to use next quarter is meth because meth can cause damages in your body. In this psa I’m going to show that you have only one life so choose wisely between meth or having a drug-free life. Also in this psa I’m going to show that it’s important to have a drug-free life and not important to do meth
In conclusion, psa’s are very important because you get to see what’s important to you and what’s important to what’s all around us. these psa’s are also important because it helps other people become a better person. this is also important to others lives because it shows how others can be healthy and think of having a better future.
This video called "mountain" is about time lapses that take place on a mountain. I like this video because I like to see time lapses that take place throughout the whole day. I also like this video because I like to see what the outside nature looks like and works.
Hey guys! for this week's blog we're going to have another stn practice for this year. some goals that I'm going to do for the stn practice this week is to get more clips to match the song, edit a little better, and act better in the music video.
First, I'll make sure we get all the clips we need and I'll also make sure we get a little more clips just incase if we need more clips to fill into the video. some other goals I'm going to do this Saturday is to make sure the edit was perfect. the stn practice this Saturday is going to be perfect.
Next, I'm also going to try my best to edit the music video much better. editing a music video might seem easy but it's challenging just like a news story video. the editing a music video is really challenging because you have to find the clips that fit the lyrics of the song that you are assigned to do.
Finally, I’m going to act better in the music video by listening about what to do for the video. I think it’s kind of funny because I’m the only boy in our group and that means that I have to be the man/ boyfriend. Acting in a video is kind of awkward to me just because i’m the only boy in the group and it’s kind of hilarious.
In conclusion, doing an stn practice is very challenging because there are so many things that you have to do but it’s worth it. the stn practice this year is going to take about six hours so there is three hours to film and another three hours to edit. this year at the stn convention I know that I’m going to have a fun time experiencing it for the first time.
hey guys! for this week's blog i will be telling you all about why i signed up for media, why i applied for media. i will also be telling you about why this class was the right class for me. i'm also going talk to you about what i'm going to do in the future years at ckms.
first, i signed up for media because before when i was at wilcox elementary i only knew how to do the tricaster, audio, and being the announcer and i wanted to learn more about the morning announcements and learn more about media. i also joined media because i wanted to experience taking interviews, doing blogs, and edit videos for quarter projects. I also wanted to experience how the morning broadcast was like in middle school because i wanted to see the different kinds of jobs that there are to learn from.
next, I applied for media because i knew that i would learn a lot from this class by learning how to take interviews, do audio, and do editing to make a story/ video for each quarter. i also applied for media because knew that i would find new friends to hang out with. i applied for media because i knew that we would learn a lot from our partners that has been in the media class for one to two years.
Then, i knew that this class was the right class for me because i wanted to learn to take interviews, make sure the audio is correct, and make sure i do the editing part correct. I also knew that this class was the one for me because i would learn about allot of things about media such as doing blogs, taking interviews, and editing the interviews and b-roll to make a story/ video. i also knew that this class was the one because i knew that i would get to know new people and make friends.
Finally, in the future years at ckms i'm planning to stay in the media class. i want to stay in this class because i can teach other people more about what we do in the media class. i hope the people that reads this blog is planning to join the media class because you get to learn a lot and you will get to know new friends.
in conclusion, this is all about why i planned to apply for the media class. as i said i'm planning to stay in the media class until i become an eighth grader. so all you people who are reading this blog should be planning if you should be in the media class or not
Hey guys! remember the disney movie called "Finding Nemo". Remember the fish called "dory" the one that said " just keep swimming, just keep swimming".Well now they're making a movie called "Finding Dory" this movie is about when dory is sleeping she/he dreams about finding his/her ('s) family. make sure to watch this movie this June 2016
Sorry it's so late but I hope you had a great thanksgiving this year! How was your turkey this year, was the cranberry sauce great? Well enjoy this short clip that I have below about the Thanksgiving feast that turned out to be a peacock.
Do you like Aurora's? well I think that auroras are really pretty and also cool in the time lapse way. I also like the different colors that there are like green, blue, yellow, and purple also when they are in the sky they are in a wavy way. but the only thing is that they don't form where I live or in other words they don't form in Hawai'i.
Hey guys! today I'm going to talk to you about the first stn practice that we did around the school campus. this practice was a great experience and was fun but also complicated at some parts. Today I'm going to talk to you about how this was successful.
First, this practice was successful because we had three hours to film and another three hours to edit but this was only for music video with Herenui Punua, Mia Thompson, Shaelynn Tavares, and me. this was also successful because we got all of our videos under three hours so since we had some time left we got to film a bit more instead of wasting our time. we also got to finish our editing part of the video by the three hours that we had.
Next, when we listened to our song that we were assigned to do we thought it was strange and we also never heard of that song before. the song that we had was called "Going my way" have you ever heard of this song before? but after we kept on listening to the song we started to like the song and we didn't think it was strange anymore.
Then, Mr.M said the the second year student is going to be editing and can choose one more person to edit so the two people that were editing was Herenui and Shaelynn. And they only had three hours to edit and they took up the whole three hours to edit and editing is the most challenging part of the whole video. After editing the whole video came out really good and all of the motions that we did matched the song.
In conclusion, this first stn practice was great and I feel confident about doing good at stn this year. I also think that all us four people did great on our music video. thank you for reading this week's blog.
