If you are new to the CKTV media program then you might not know what STN is so STN is a middle school and a high school convention. The first thing that you do is to sign up for a video category and in march when you go up for STN you get a topic on what kind of video you have to do and make a video out of it in either 6 hours or maybe 5 hours etc. So STN is the “Student Television Network” and there are people from all of the 50 states and last year there were students from Russia who competed in the STN convention. During STN we meet up with students from Castaic middle school and they are called our pen pals and they are mostly just like our friends but from a different state and also far away from us.
If you haven’t watched “Aloha Atlanta” on PBS then you should watch the video below because Nikki from PBS shot and edited this video while we were competing at STN in Atlanta Georgia in March. So this video is mostly all about how we stuck together over the whole school year and how we got are awards by trusting each other, and treating each other as family. This video is also about how we became the CKTV Ohana and how we overcome our obstacles throughout last year’s school year.
Hey guys! So this past weekend my CKTV media class and I went to the Koke’e Discovery Center and we had a fun time there. We did a lot of fun activities such as kickball, tug of war and also daytime and nighttime hikes along the trail around the cabin. We also did a lot of activities that relate to media too such as night light painting, picture hike and the newbies got to practice how to shoot interviews. So this week I will be telling you all about what we did during our fun media camp at the Discovery Center.
Some things that I enjoyed doing at the camp were playing games outside such as duck, duck, goose and freeze tag we also played cars too like Palace, and Speed. Another thing that I like about the camp were doing the berry flat hike and the night hike because we got to take nice pictures on the berry flat hike such as unusual angles, close ups, wides and also medium shots and on the night hike we didn’t need to bring a chaperone with us so we kind of made ourselves scared but other than that we made it out safely. The third thing that I liked about the camp was when we got to do our secret cards and get to know my classmates in the media class better.
After the media camp and writing the secret cards I got to know Keith and my other classmates better too. I also got to know my classmates better by playing with them like playing duck, duck, goose, and freeze tag with them, we also did some activities like charades and playing card games. Another way I got along with my classmates over the weekend was just hanging out with them and have a friendly bond with each other.
The one thing that impacted me the most was when we all got to go on the night hike and when most of us almost cried because we made ourselves scared but at the end there was a meaning that really paid it off. Going back to the camp the theme of it was “Ohana means family” and during the hike there were ziplock bags that had items in it. In the first ziplock bag there was a glue stick which bonds us together, then there was a paper clip which holds us together, after that there was a lifesaver candy which means when we get hurt there is someone in our group that will help us and the last item was a piece of string so we don’t get loose and fall apart from each other.
In conclusion, There is always a friend who can help you with your ups and downs wherever you are just like what the items in the bags meant. I think that this camp meant that you can always find a new friend either at school, on a sport team, or at work. I would always think that camping is just being outdoors but it’s actually about being outdoors and finding something adventurous or something that you might not do on a daily bases.
Do you remember these movies? I thought that this series of movies would fit in well with the blog topic because it about vehicles and what kinds you would like or have ridden in this movie will also fit in with with the media class because this is an animated movie. So in the first movie It was mostly about a race car named Lightning McQueen that was going to a race in California but fell out of his own trailer and found himself in what’s known as “Radiator Springs” and he found some new friends including a tow truck named mater. In Cars 2 it was mostly about when lightning McQueen and Mater go to the world grand prix and while Lightning McQueen is focusing on the race track Mater goes to the international espionage where he meets Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell who was in training.
Vrooom Vrooom Vrooom! So this week’s blog topic is about what kind of car or ship that you would like to ride in. This week I will be talking to you all about a Lamborghini because I think that these cars are so awesome because these cars can go really fast. I hope that when I grow up I might somehow be able to afford one. Some things that I really like about these cars are the wing doors that opens upwards instead of sidewards like a regular door.
What I like about a lamborghini is the style and looks of the car. It’s sleek design, and the doors open upwards instead of sidewards. It also has a big engine that’s what makes this car go really fast. Another thing that I like about Lamborghini’s are the faces or the front look of the car because some look happy like the black car and some look mean like the silver car. I think that all faces of cars seem so cool because the looks of cars mostly grab people’s attention to buy a car. Also Lamborghinis can go really fast with speeds up to 217 mph.
If I did get a lamborghini I would like to go to Autobahn in Germany to drive this car as fast as I can since it’s legal and there is no speed limit there. This Autobahn stretches over 8,000 miles long and most parts has no speed limit. Autobahn is one of the few places in the world where it is legal to dive at speeds at 140 mph which may be just about cruising speed for a Lamborghini.
By choosing this vehicle I would want to go to autobahn to test out how good my engine would be and how fast my car can go. I would also go to autobahn because you can see a lot of other fast cars that don’t only look nice but go fast too. Also in autobahn I would drive as fast as my car can go for about 8,000 miles which is really far. I have also known that in three seconds a Lamborghini can go up to around 62 miles per hour which is really fast.
Stress! So if you have watched Kaycee and Alaysia’s video that they made last year they might have said stress so today I just finished watching that video And in the beginning they said that for upcoming students there is going to be a lot of stress. So I thought to myself for a while about what is a way to prevent stress so I looked on youtube and I found this video and I was thinking that this could help me and other people who is going through stress. I think that this video might help me a lot when I do get stress.
These are some tips that can help you to unwind from stress from either homework from school or even job work too. I like this video because it’s a cartoon and a lot of people enjoy watching cartoons also I think that cartoons grab people’s attention and that makes them watch a cartoon video that a regular person talking in front of a camera. Going back to the video all of the tip in this video is true because I had some friends who had stress and when they watched this video they realized that it helps a lot.
This video below are also some tips that we use in the Media Productions class.
So I thought that this movie trailer is going to be a good one for all of my media classmates because we all like to listen to music and we also like to "Sing". This also relates the media because it's an animation type of film and some of the past year students have done some so you can go and check out the media productions page which is the link on the home page. But I like these films because I think that animation films makes a movie more funny because there are so many goofy and interesting characters. I also like animation films because from pictures in a movie brings a character to life and it also grabs you into the movie and makes you want to know what's next and it's also just like a book because when you read a book it grabs you into the story and makes you more and more interested about the book or movie that you are reading or watching.
I also thought of choosing this video because there are so many singers and actors who are voices of these amazing characters. Such as Tori Kelly, Scarlett Johansson, Matthew Mcconaughey and many more... All of these actors and singers have really good voices and I know that I'm going to enjoy this video because I personally sing part of a song that I know in my head And I know that almost everyone in the media class will enjoy it too. I think that the gorilla is gonna be my favorite character because he doesn't want to be like his father who is a robber because he wants to be a singer.
Hi my name is Kai and I'm a second year student in the CKTV media class. My partner this year is Keith. Thanks for tuning in and have a great day.
