Hey guys! So for this week's blog topic it’s about how we thought our third quarter projects were. So for every third quarter we do a PSA or a Public Service Announcement and in each category for the Olelo Youth Xchange there are different time limits for some of them but the PSA category’s that we are mostly in have the time limit of 30 seconds. In my PSA for this quarter was about conserving water and how important it is to us now and in the future.
One thing that I felt good about my PSA was the way that everything got together well. I thought that it wouldn't because there were so many shots that were in the video that it got confusing to find each shot and place it in each spot where it was supposed to be. Usually when it comes to filming it feels easy but when you realize what you're doing it gets complicated because you have to zoom in or out and change your focus and your audio when the camera is hooked up to the mic.
Another thing that I was satisfied with was the way that all my drafts were completed on time and not after the due date. I'm satisfied with this because if you have seen my blog about the third quarter goals that I would like to achieve, turning in all drafts and paperwork turned on time was one of my goals for third quarter. Also, I felt good about this because I thought I was going to turn in two drafts for this project but I edited two more so it because to four drafts in total so by doing that it made feel better about myself with turning things on time.
Finally, the third thing that I was satisfied with was editing. So for me when I come to editing I follow whatever’s on the script and that makes it more easy for me but sometimes it's hard to figure out where each shot will go because it can either go in the center, top, or bottom. So in editing you have to think just like what you're doing with the camera when you're filming because you have to think is this the right place to put these shot, is there any jump cuts, and does this part make sense.
In conclusion, I think that my third quarter project went well because there was many things that I had to fix but became much better for me because what Mr. M told me really helped make the video make more sense. Because in every PSA it must tell a Public Service Announcement and must tell a message about the topic that your in with olelo. Have great day!
Hey guys! So since Donald Trump is our new president Mr.M wants to know what the three traits that we feel every president should have. There’s a lot of things that we can talk about Donald Trump but today I will tell you all the things that I feel every president should have which is very important to us as citizens of the United states. I think this will be the most hardest blog I might do because my goal is not to say too much, but just informing you these are my opinions.
So What I look towards a new president is to be respectful. Being respectful to me means that you meet new people and and you make then feel welcome and for example if you have and election you should make people have a say like a question instead of putting them to the side and changing the topic. The definition of Respectful is “feeling or showing deference and respect.” I know that Donald trump shows respect to us as citizens but I think that he should show some more respect to other countries before we might have missiles coming to us.
Another trait I look towards a new president is to be like you’re the smartest person in the world. I think this because for me when you think you’re the smartest person in the world it make you seem kind of sassy and rude and this is what causes hate because you might stick to it and you might say it over and over and that way you think that people will like you but when others see that they might not stick with you and be your friend. I think that when you let people have a say in something, when you listen to people and when you don't act like you're the smartest then that will make people stick with you and never leave you and it's also really simple to just be kind to others around you.
The third trait that I would look for towards a new president is honesty. I think this is important because we all know that if you're not honest then things might not turn out the way you wanted them to turn out. I think that honesty is the most important because if you show honesty and really show it then people will believe you and like you more than hate you and actually leave this country for another country with a better president.
In conclusion, there are many things to look out for when there is a new president on the way to control our country. I thought these three traits were important to me because they really relate to kindness and that make everyone happy when someone is nice to them. Have a great day!
So if you haven’t heard of the MacBook pro with Touchbar it is just like a regular computer but this one has fewer ports like the SD card, USB, etc. But what makes this good is that there is a touch bar so if you have a apple laptop then you will have all of the smaller and thinner buttons at the top and I think that’s what the touch bar part is Such as the brightness, play and pause, and volume buttons. In this video Casey talks about what is good and what’s not good about the Macbook Pro with Touchbar.
Hey guys! So this week’s blog topic is about how our morning announcements have been going since we have been doing it for a while now. If you have read my blog that was made two weeks ago I was saying all about the things that will become good for the morning announcements. But today I will tell how it's going so far?, has it been hard or easy for me?, and what can we do to make it better for the whole school or the audience?.
First off, the announcements have been great so far because one everyone has been coming to school on time which makes it better for us who is working and announcing to practice more. It has also been good because we have actually added a lot more things to the announcements such as our personal profile videos, added birthdays, quotes to end our broadcast, and a word of the week. This was like another kahoot game just you have to listen to the announcements to see how many times our teachers at CKMS thought we used the word of the week such as last week’s one was luminous.
After doing the announcements with the birthdays and the Personal profile videos it felt like how we ran the announcements last time just a little bit extended with the Personal Profile on Tuesdays or Thursdays. After doing the announcements for the first time after second quarter when we took over the announcements it felt like it was easy because last year was the same just with the leadership people and a couple videos that some teacher wanted to show like how one of our teachers at CKMS made a video about the “You Matter” campaign. Well I personally thought that it was easy for the first time we did the announcements after we took it over this year.
To make the announcements more enjoyable I think that we should make a new intro to the announcements because we have been using the same intro that I think kaden made when he was in media in seventh or sixth grade and now he is in the ninth grade. Another thing that I think we should do is to try and include some pictures in the credits because in the credits it as a plain black background and colorful lettering so I think that if we put pictures it will be more eye catching. The last thing that we should do is to work on putting in backgrounds because Mr.M said that since we have been showing the greenscreen for a while now we should add some of our pictures so we can get rid if the green screen and make it more enjoyable.
In conclusion, Doing the announcements is a big job because it’s live and once you make a mistake everyone will see it but if you practice there will be a higher chance that there will be no mistakes. Have a great day!
So in this video Casey does another tech review and since his lens for the canon 80D can't be fixed he decided to try a Sony camera. In this tech review Casey talks about what is good and bad about the camera compared to the canon 80D camera which I think is a big switch. I think this because in the video it seems the 80D has more things that make filming easier like touch screen, auto focusing etc. But the Sony has many good things but the only problem is you can't see yourself without the flip screen etc.
