There has been many lessons I have learned from media throughout this past year. Here I will tell you three of the most important lessons I learned. The first is how to talk to people I don't know better. Another will be about viewing things through other's eyes. The final one is how to make a great story.
Learning to talk to complete strangers about a specific topic can be a very hard thing to do, but it is much needed in life. I improved, and learned the importance, of this skill due to me being on he spot feature team. To be on that team, and even get a story at all, you need to know how to ask random people if they have a story that fits your topic. This can be very hard at times.
Another lesson I learned was how to look at something through other's eyes. This is very important to know how to do when writing a story, knowing what the different groups of people would like and knowing how to put it all in one. Having this skill and learning when to use it is very beneficial. You will do good in negotiations and other related things.
I also learned how to make a great story, which is very important in film making. I use to be horrible at making scripts for news stories, I am still not that good, but I am better. I also have a hard time coming up with what should come next in a script for a movie or something like that. along with script writing, I use to not be great at making a film or other thing impactful, but I now am better at it.
I know that some of you who will be new, or even returning, to media will have lessons that you will learn throughout the year similar, or completely different, but it is all for you to learn from. See you later, bye!
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.
