This is a video about something you should not do during your time in media, or anywhere else.
Hey everyone! This is sad to say, but this is the last blog I will be doing for my 7th grade year. I am very sad about this because I had so much fun this year and I don't want it to end, I do want the work to end though. I am going to miss all of my friends very much and I do hope that we can hang out over the summer. I want to thank everyone who has helped me throughout the school year and especially thank Mr. M for everything he has done to us. Well, thank you for reading this last blog post, see you all next year and have a good one!

Hey everyone! Well, summer is in a week, and I'm so excited! I can't wait to sleep in and play with my friends, and I don't have to worry about homework. That also means that I won't be able to see all of my friends for 2 months, and I won't see my 8th grade friends anymore, so I'm kind of bummed, but hopefully we can hang out over summer. For this weeks blog post, Mr, M wants us to write about some of our summer goals that we have. My first summer goal is to keep learning and remember what I learned in 7th grade, my second goal is that I want to build something cool and fun, and my last goal is just to have fun.
My first summer goal is to keep learning and not forget what I learned this school year. I want to do this because I don't want to come back in 8th grade and forget everything that I learned, and then have to start from scratch again. To achieve this goal, I could do Teenbiz, work on homework stuff that come from online, or I can even study my work that I did this year. I don't want to come back next year and get a bad grade because I forgot everything I learned this year.
The next summer goal that I want to achieve is to build something cool and fun with my friends. I want to build like a water balloon gun, or something mechanical that you can build with just materials that you can get from your home. If my friends and I do something like that, we could have something super cool to play with and we could be proud of building it from scratch.
My last goal for the summer is to just to have fun during the summer. Instead of staying home and doing nothing, I want to go with my friends and have fun. Whether it's building something, riding bikes, or sleep overs, I just want to not be bored during the summer. If I do get bored, and none of my friends are available, then I will do something on my own that's fun.
Overall, some summer goals that I have are to keep learning and remember what I learned in 7th grade, my second goal is that I want to build something cool and fun, and my last goal is just to have fun. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! There is already less than 3 weeks left of school, and I can't wait! I can finally sleep in and not have to worry about any homework. Anyways, today I just learned what "Dear Abby" was, and I thought it was pretty cool, so for this weeks blog post, Mr. M wants us to give advice to the newbie media students that are coming next year. My first word of advice is obvious, but it is to not procrastinate. My second word of advice is to try you best, and my last advice is work well with your classmates and other people.
My first word of advice is to not procrastinate because it is not fun when you do. I know that everyone will say that you shouldn't procrastinate but it really is true. It is not fun when you procrastinate because then you have to rush to do your work at the end. I have procrastinated many times and the worst time is when I procrastinated to do my 3rd quarter project last year. It really sucked and I had to edit the project the day before it was due. I know it is tempting to procrastinate but don't do it because it is really nice when you don't procrastinate.
My next word of advice is do the best you can do. I think that if you do the best you can do, you will achieve great things. Some times when you can do your best is if you are filming and want to get the best shots you can get, sometimes you have to spend more time filming or think of good questions to ask your interviewee. It is even for PSA's when you have to think of a good idea that will get people to do what your PSA wants them to do.
My last word of advice is to work well with your classmates and your partner. I know that sometimes, you will disagree with your partner and classmates but you will have to try your hardest not to get into fights, and that means to agree even though you don't agree, or even get them to agree with you. Just try your best to work as best as you can with your classmates because if you don't you and your classmates will get torn apart.
Overall, my advice for the newbies coming into the media class is to not procrastinate. My second word of advice is to try you best, and my last advice is work well with your classmates and other people. If you are reading this and you are a newbie, you should definitely follow this advice and our other classmates advice because it will help you out a lot. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
SPOILER ALERT!! DON'T READ THIS BLOG IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE MOVIE YET!!!
Hey everyone! This past Friday, my friends and I watched the new movie called "Captain America: Civil War." I thought that this movie was so awesome and and cool because it had so much acting and fighting. I loved it so much because it was 2 awesome, skilled fighting guys who fight, and they have teams that are even and one of them are out matched. Personally, I am on Iron Man's side because he is so cool and awesome, not that Captain America isn't, but I just feel that Iron Man has a better point and that they should be watched by the United Nations. Then in the end, the reason why Iron Man is fighting Captain America is because Captain America's friend blew up the UN building, even though he didn't do it, he was framed by this guy wanting the Avengers to not be together anymore. Then after that Iron Man learned that he Captain America's friend didn't do it, so they teamed up to find the guy who framed Captain America's friend, and they did. The guy who framed Captain America's friend then showed a video of Captain America's friend killing Iron Man's parents because someone was controlling him but Iron Man didn't that. Iron Man then got really angry and wanted to kill Captain America's friend, but they fought back. So I don't really know who's side I'm on. Anyways, I totally think that you should watch this movie because it is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Well, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! A couple of weeks ago, I saw this new youtube channel called "New Rockstars". This channel talks about all of the hints and hidden things that are in movies and trailers. I think that they are super cool because they find every little thing in a movie and they have all of the clips and close ups of the hints. They even have references from other movies or old stories which is so cool. Overall, I just think that you have to watch them to understand how cool they are, and it's just 2 guys who do this and they make it awesome. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! It's already halfway through 4th quarter and we have to be done filming by this week! This quarter is going by so fast and I also have May Day this week. Well, since we are halfway through the quarter, Mr. M wanted us to do a project update to see how we are doing for our 4th quarter projects. Are we ahead of schedule, on schedule, or behind? For Kallen and I's 4th quarter project, we are doing "Teens Try to Live Without their Electronics for a week", so Kallen and I have been filming the volunteers, which are Kolten, Napua, and Mia, over the past week, and they also have been vlogging. I think that Kallen and I are on schedule because we got our script done on time, we are almost done with filming, and we already began editing the footage that we have.
The first reason why I think that we are on time with our 4th quarter project is because we got our script done I time. Firstly, I admit, I didn't do a lot of work on the script but I helped out a little, but Kallen did most of it. Then we turned in our first draft of the script, but Mr. M didn't like it at all because it seemed like we didn't put any work into it, because all we did was put an opening shot and in the middle we put something like this "This section consists of shots from the first day of filming." So we edited it and made it better and got a 3.5 on it before it was due, and I thank Kallen for doing working so hard on the script.
The next reason why I think that we are on time for our 4th quarter project is because we are almost done filming. Filming was due this week Friday and Kallen and I finished filming one part of our project on Thursday because we started filming on Thursday, April 28th, and we only needed to film one week of our volunteers. All we need the film is the after interviews and we already filmed our before interviews filmed. If we need to re-film any of the opening shots of them getting their electronics taken away or the closing shots of them getting their electronics back, we can.
The last reason why I think that we are on schedule for our 4th quarter project is because we already began editing the footage we have. We got all of the footage from the days the volunteers without their electronics, and we put all of the shots on the timeline. We also have the first interviews that we did on the timeline with the other shots. Now all we need to do is put the after interviews in, edit it and take some shots out, and then maybe put some music in and we will be done with our project.
Overall, I think that Kallen and I are on time with our 4th quarter project, which is "Teens Try to Live Without their Electronics for a week", because we got our script done on time, we are almost done with filming, and we already began editing the footage that we have. I also think that this quarter is going by really fast and we are not procrastinating a lot, so I'm proud of that, but I also have to thank Kallen because he also had been working really hard on this project. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Today I saw the new trailer of Captain America: Civil war and I wanted to talk about it. First of all, I thought that this trailer was so cool and awesome because it showed us so much more than the first trailer. I think that the most cool part is when Captain America and Iron Man are fighting and also when the Panther is fighting. I think that the Panther is so cool because his armor is made up of Vibranium (The material that makes up Captain Amercia's shield) and he is an awesome fighter. It also shows a lot more hints to what the movie will be about. Well, that's it for this free blog post, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, a great musician named Prince died. I didn't know him very well, but by listening to his music, I could tell he was a great musician. Since that tragic event happened, this weeks blog topic is about what kind of music we listen to to get motivated and why it motivates us. The kind of music that motivates me is actually Dubstep music. 3 reasons why I like that type of music is because it is fast and has a strong vibe. Another reason why Dubstep motivates me is because some of the Dubstep songs are about sad things that happened and that you should never give up, and most of the people that make the dubstep songs didn't have good lives and have been really poor.
The first reason why Dubstep music motivates me is because it has a really fast beat and has a strong vibe. If I and about to do in to a football game or something, I listen to dubstep to motivated me to go faster or to be stronger. Some of the songs are quiet and chill, but I like the crazy and fast kind of Dubstep.
The second reason why Dubstep motivated me is because sometimes the songs are about sad things and that you shouldn't give up no matter what. Sometimes the songs are about the song writers and what they have been through and that they didn't give up.
The last reason why Dubstep music motivated me is because most of the people who make the songs were before really poor and and didn't have such good lives. Then they had a passion to do music and did it, and got rich and they have a good life. This tells me that you really can get somewhere high in your life if you follow your passion.
Overall, Dubstep is my way to get my self motivated because I like that type of music is because it is fast and has a strong vibe. Another reason why Dubstep motivates me is because some of the Dubstep songs are about sad things that happened and that you should never give up, and most of the people that make the dubstep songs didn't have good lives and have been really poor. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
