If you are a student going to this advanced media class, you might want to read this. I will tell you about some advice for next year media class. This is for returnees and newbies. First I will tell you some hints in class, when Mr. M isn't around. Also, some basic things. Finally, always think of the consequences of things you do.
Some things you should do when Mr. M is not around is pretty simple. Like one, picking up camera or laptop bags if they are on the ground or left somewhere. Also if someone needs help with something but Mr. M can't help them, you should try to help them if you can. There are many other things that you can do to make it easier for Mr. M and others.
Some of the basic things to do are usually only done because of laziness or no time. It usually is very simple to do. One might be getting keys from someone in the morning to open the two rooms. Or maybe even simply going to find your own headphones and not taking other people's headphones. You never know how simple it could be to do one basic thing in this class.
You should always think about the consequences of things. One could be no one can bring equipment home because some one didn't take care of it at home, or even at school. Another could be that we could use no equipment at all, only our own cameras or phones/tablets to do the class. Maybe we might not even have the class if the equipment isn't taken care of.
Many things can happen and many things you can stop from happening when you follow all the basic rules and tips in this class. It is very important to keep the equipment safe and useable or the school might cut the program. Help everyone in the class out and be part of the CKTV Ohana and you will have tons of fun. See you later!
This blog will be about a movie review that was based on media! This movie I just barely watched and it starred the same person who starred in the "Night at the Museum" as Larry Daley, who is Ben Stiller. He was a film developer for the magazine "Life" when a very important picture that will be on Life's last cover, isn't there. He goes and searches across the world to find the photographer who took the picture and ask where it is. This movie reminded me of my media class because of all the cameras and a little because of the film they had. I enjoyed this movie and I think it is a good one. Come back soon to see a new page with all my videos that I have made, shortly including my fourth quarter project. Bye!
This blog will be about how far I am in my project. The due date is almost here! It is due on Wednesday. First I will tell how well I think I will do. Second, I will tell you where I am. Finally, I will say when I plan to turn it in and what I need to still do.
I think I will do pretty good. I think that because I have a good amount of B-roll of a good variety. Also I got some good answers from my interviews that gives me what I need for a good news story.I have been going smooth so far.
I am at a good point on my project. I have gotten all the interviews into the sequence easily and I have some parts where the B-roll matches perfectly with the words being said. I have not had any problems at all except for having to find out how to fade on and off lower thirds.I have done a good amount of work for how much longer I have.
I plan to turn in my first draft by Monday. I will then have 1 and a half class periods to finish the rest. I say one and a half because I still have to record and put in the voice overs and stand-up, also because it might take time to have Mr. M view it. I also have to do radios that are due on Thursday that might take time away from my project.
Over all, I only have a couple more days to turn it in completed. I also have many other things to do that will take time away from my project, but I know I will turn it in on time and have it done good. If you would like to see my completed video, come back in a week and I will have a new page with the video and all my other videos. See
The reason for the title is because I am not sure if I will have time to finish my project or not. I am currently doing my fourth point on my script because all my 5 points were changed that set the entire script. Since I am close and have not lost much time, I think I can do it and get it done. After all, the spot feature only had three hours to get it done. I was part of it! I am pretty confident I can do it. I have to go now so see you later and come back soon if you want to keep updated on my project!
The family night is coming soon! It was supposed to be on the 29th of May on a Wednesday but there was another thing planned that day so I heard that it was moved to the last day of school, Thursday, May 29th. In this blog I will tell you what video I will show, why I am choosing that one, and a little sample of what I might say.
What I am thinking of choosing is my fourth quarter project. I am still working on it but almost done. It is a news story. It is the 8th one I have made. It is based on Kalaheo School having to get rid of their playground equipment, resurfacing, and putting in new equipment.
The reason I am doing my fourth quarter news story is because it shows my own skill and what I have learned and not what anyone else has done too. Also it will give it a chance to be seen and if it is seen, people might help the school, one way to give back to them thank them for the video they helped make with me by being interviewed.
One thing that I might say is maybe, " This video is what I did for the fourth quarter. For the fourth quarter we could do what ever type of video we wanted. I chose a news story because I felt I could do them best and also I had a good idea already and had good connections." After that I would probably describe what it is about.
It is getting a little late and I still have some homework and another blog to do. I hope you have liked all of my blogs so far. I have work to do so see you later!
Doing the fourth quarter project is harder then I thought it would be. I hoped I would get half of the script done by Wednesday but I only got the treatment done that day. I am still working on the script and need to hurry. I need to get to work on that script now so see you later!
This blog will be about what Mr. M has seen, people going on vacation early. He says most of us are checking out early. By that he means we are getting lazy. What I can do to stop that is to think ahead of time what I will do next. I can help others to stay away from this by giving them a reminder or starting them off on what needs to be done. Another way I can stay at school is by taking advice from others and also excepting reminders from others without thinking it insulting.
When I say think ahead of time I mean to do it so I know what I need to do next and so I will always have something to do. This can help by having my brain working and not vacationing. Your mind might go on vacation without you noticing. That is why this would help me not check out early.
Everyone needs to remember that we are one huge CKTV ohana so we need to help each other with this problem. One way I could help others is by giving them a friendly reminder to keep on task to not get scolded. Or I could help them get started so they can see what they need to do and then they might get the rest done themselves.
The final way I could stay at school and not off on vacation is by taking advice from others. I could simply listen to what they say or not but still think about what they say. I cold also take in reminders like I will maybe give out and not take it offensive.
There are many more ways I could help others or myself with this problem if I were to just sit and think for a while. If you know of another way we can stop this, feel free to tell me. It's getting a little full on this page so it's time for me to go for now.
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
