Hey guys! We have less than a week left until we go on our trip to Anaheim, California. I’m so happy to go this year because this year it’s gonna be more close to home and more exciting because we are going all over LA and Anaheim. But today Mr. M wants us to share what things we are looking for when we go to STN.
First off, I’m so happy to meet my penpal from Castaic Middle school in person instead of communicating through email and text. I think that we are gonna be good friends because we both enjoy watching television shows on Netflix. I’m so happy to see him when we go to Anaheim because we are definitely going to have a fun time there.
Secondly, I’m looking for going to Disneyland, Warner Bros, and Universal Studios because in my opinion I think that those are the good people who make movies. My goal this year is to try not to buy too much things at every store we go to and also save money for food. I’m starting to smile already even though we have less than a week left.
Finally, Im also eager to see if we do well this year so now I wish I could read the future. This is one of the most stressful things that we experience during the closing ceremony/ awards. Plus we are competing against other schools which makes it even more exciting.
In conclusion, STN is coming up and each day it gets more and more exciting also we get more and more anxious.
Hey guys! So last weekend we had our first and last practice for the “Crazy 8’s” which we are doing to compete in the STN competition in Anaheim, California. I'm so excited to go on the STN trip because now will be on the west coast of the United States so we would be more close to home. This week Mr. M wanted to know how we are doing with our practices that we have been doing.
First off, my team which was the Movie Trailer team and for the irate practice we had some struggles because there were more newbies that returnees in this team because last year I did Music Video and Napua did anchoring last year but did Movie Trailer in her sixth grade year in media. The first practice was hard because there wasn’t a great communication and plus we didn't know how each of us really well but after we have been practicing our relationship became closer.
Secondly, I think that the Movie Trailer team has really improved a lot from our first practice. I think this because there is a difference from our first practice to our last practice and that has changed a lot by how we acted in each of the trailers that we did. We improved a lot after all of the four practices that we did for the past months.
Finally, our last practice was the Crazy 8’s practice and that was very stressful but good for us so we could experience what it was like again to shoot and edit a video in 8 hours. So for our first Crazy 8’s practice it was stressful because we had to edit our videos more than one time but we only had to change the most common mistakes which were mostly jump cuts.
In conclusion, working as a team can either go in the right or wrong direction. Have a great day!
Have you ever seen glasses/ shades like these? I haven’t, but the only thing is that it looks really expensive. I think that it’s so cool that you can customise your own screen so it can show a message or something else. I hope I have enough money in the future to buy something like these glasses.
Hey guys! So for the past weeks we have been talking about our next and new group project for the fourth quarter. Next quarter we are going to do a project on Kauai Grown and if you don’t know what it is then you should click the button below. For this week’s blog topic Mr.M wants us to give him three reasons why we should either be in the Photography, Videography, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter teams. So I picked the Videography team because in the videography team we will have to shoot and edit a personal profile on all of the farmers who work for the Kaua’i Grown Company.
So one reason why I should be on the videography team because I would like to keep working on the Video part of media than the social media side. I think this because in media it’s more of the broadcasting and I also choose videography because I want to put a little more pressure on me because in the videography you need to find time to first do you paperwork then your scripts and your filming and finally your editing. I enjoy doing the videography part of media because there’s a lot of work that is in it but every time you do a video it helps you to become over your fear of being stressed.
The second reason why I should be on the videography team because sometimes when I take pictures I tend to shake my hands. That way the pictures that I take comes blurry and you can’t see what is being focused in the picture. I don’t really enjoy taking pictures too because of my hands shaking and also I always have a feeling that I might drop the camera.
The final reason why I should be in the videography team because I don’t really enjoy how Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter works because it seems like it wastes a lot of time of your day. I also don’t like Snapchat because it’s like you have to post a picture or a video every day. That is one of the things that I don’t like the other social media apps.
In Conclusion, There are many ways to talk about this topic but these are the three reasons that I thought were the best. Have a great day!
