Hey everyone! Today I am going to write about this movie trailer about this movie called "Captain America: Civil War". From seeing the trailer, I think it is about Captain America teaming up with his friend, who has done something bad, and then Iron Man, my favorite character, trying to keep Captain America and his friend from doing something. I thought this trailer was awesome because it definitely makes you want to watch it with all of the cool special effects, and the amazing fight scenes. Overall, I thought that this trailer is awesome and you should definitely watch it if you haven't. Well, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! Today I am going to write about some reasons why last year, I decided to join the advanced media class. I have many reasons but I am only going to tell you three. I will also write an extra paragraph on what my plans are for next year. The first reason why I joined this media class is because I wanted to be more experienced with technology, the second reason is because I really enjoy filming, and the last reason is I wanted to challenge my self a little more.
The first reason why I joined this advanced media class is because I wanted to get more experienced with technology. Over the years, technology has been getting better and better because of all the people creating it. I personally like learning about this new technology but I wouldn't be able to without join this class. In fifth grade, I heard that this class deals a lot with technology and I definitely wanted to join it and I was super lucky and got in. Since then, I've learned so much from working with cameras to fixing computers. I really enjoy this class and I really think this class will benefit me in the future.
The next reason why I joined this class is because I really like filming. Before joining media I had a Youtube channel were my friend and I uploaded Minecraft videos and videos we shot on our phone. Then I thought that our videos weren't the best because we didn't have good quality, sound, and our editing skills weren't the best. I, of course, wanted to get better at it so I decided to join this class. I have learned so much of filming techniques and editing skills in just one year. We haven't been on that Youtube channel for a long time but I know that if I were to upload a video, it would be way better than our other videos because of the skills I learned from this class.
The last reason why I joined this class is because I wanted to challenge myself a little more. I thought that if I just went in to middle school without doing anything special, I wouldn't learn as much as I would with a special, harder class. I went to the meetings and they said that this class would be hard, but I was ready because I knew I would learn a lot. The first year of media was great because I had an awesome partner, Ben. He was awesome because he taught me so much and he so many life lessons. I knew I probably wasn't his favorite partner but he was my favorite partner. I definitely right decision on joining this class.
What I plan to do next year is to join this class. This class has been really hard, but also fun. It has taught me so much from getting the right angle on a camera to not procrastinating. I also want to join this class next year because we have an awesome teacher. He may be mad and scary sometimes, but if you get all of your work done and don't do anything bad, he is the best teacher. He always makes everything fun and exciting, and he puts so much work in to everything he does. When we do something out of school, like the STN trip, he lets us have so much fun and we also learn some stuff too.
Overall, I joined this class because I wanted to be more experienced with technology, the second reason is because I really enjoy filming, and the last reason is I wanted to challenge my self a little more. I would never regret the decision of joining this class because it is so fun and you can learn so much. This class has been a wonderful experience and I will definitely join next year. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Today I am going to write about this video that was shown last year during the announcements and it's called "To This Day". I thought this video was very well done because there is a lot of cool animations that are super awesome. It also shows you a lot of things that you shouldn't do like bully and tease other people. Overall I thought this video was really cool and you should definitely watch it if you haven't. Well, thats it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hi everyone! Today I am going to talk about our first STN practice this past Wednesday. This practice was to prepare us for our STN competition in Atlanta next year. I thought this STN practice was successful, but kind of a struggle at the same time. I thought that because me and my STN partner Aron, were on time, we had quality visuals and audio, but we didn't have enough interviews and b-roll.
The first reason why I thought we were successful with our video was because we were on time with everything. When we went to film, we only had 2 hours to film, so we got 3 interviews, and some b-roll shots. When we got back to the library, we were 9 minutes late but we still had enough time to edit and get the film done on time without having problems.
The next reason why I thought the last STN practice was successful was because when we went filming, we had good audio and video. Luckily we got pretty decent equipment when we were packing because our audio was good. The interviews had good audio and we got a good camera so our visual was also good. When it came to filming b-roll, I thought the visuals were good, but the sound could improve a little bit. Since our category in STN is nat sounds, we have to get better b-roll sound. Instead of using the regular Rode Mic, we can us the big mic that has really good sound but I don't know what's it called.
The last thing I am going to talk about is a bad thing that happened at the STN practice. It was when we were editing, we didn't have enough b-roll, or interviews. When we were filming, I thought we had plenty of b-roll shots but it turned out we didn't. When we finished I also thought that we needed to get way more interviews because we only had 3 interviews and the whole video was supposed to be only interview and b-roll and no voice overs. Only having 3 interviews caused us to make the video really short and not so good.
Overall I thought that the first STN practice was successful, but it had some bad things about it. I thought that because me and my STN partner Aron, were on time, we had quality visuals and audio, but we didn't have enough interviews and b-roll. Well that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Today I am going to write about this vlogger that Mr. M showed us and his name is Casey Neistat. I think he a really cool guy that just films everything he does. He also makes his videos very interesting because of all the amazing stuff he does like ride through New York with his Skate Board. He also has a building where he stores everything he has done overs the years and sometimes he shows us some of that stuff. Overall I just think this guy is super cool and you should definitely watch him of you haven't. Well, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hi everyone! Today I am going to talk about if I ever teased someone before. I tease my brother a lot but this one time I took it too far. I will tell you how I felt about knowing that the person I teased is hurt, how the person I teased felt, and what I learned from that experience.
How I felt after I knew the person I teased was hurt, I felt super bad. I felt like I did something very mean and I just couldn't handle it. At the time I was super angry at my brother so I teased him but then after I thought about what I said, I felt horrible.
I think my brother felt sad after I teased him. I could tell by his face and his attitude because my brother is mostly happy and when he was sad I knew I hurt him. I also think that my brother might have been angry at me too but he just couldn't do anything or he would get in trouble. After I knew what he felt like I felt really bad for him and I tried to say sorry.
What I learned from this experience is you should never tease someone. In my opinion, I think you should never tease someone because you can really hurt someone else and then you just make yourself feel more worse. I also learned that being the victim feels even worse that if you are the bully. I get teased by my brother a lot but I don't take it seriously but when he goes too far, I know that it doesn't feel good and no one should feel that.
Overall, I teased someone before and I don't like it. I told you how I felt about knowing that the person I teased is hurt, how the person I teased felt, and what I learned from that experience. Well, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Today I am going to talk about this movie I really want to watch called "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice". From what I saw from the from the trailer, it was about Batman wanting to kill Superman and Superwomen in the movie but I don't know which side she is on. I think it is going to be a super cool movie because of all the awesome special effects but to bad it comes out next year. Well, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! Today I am going to write about one of my favorite trips that I took. It is when I went to the Grand Canyon for the summer of 2014. This was my most favorite trip because we went to the Grand Canyon! The second reason is because we got to go on a raft through the Grand Canyon, and we had the best guides ever!
The first reason why going to the Grand Canyon was my most favorite trip is because we went to the 6 million year old canyon. I thought that was amazing because there was amazing places to hike and really cool scenery. It also had old Indian structures and even cool turquoise rivers!
The second reason why it was my favorite trip is because we got to raft through the Grand Canyon. We rafted 188 miles in 7 days and not one bit of it was boring. We got to go on these cool boats, we ate food that was so much better that I thought, and we went through these insanely huge rapids that looked small but were actually huge! We also checked out these cool waterfalls and caves. What was pretty scary about the trip was lots of people die very easily from falling of the boat or when we are hiking. The week before we went someone died from falling of the boat so that was scary.
The last reason why going to the Grand Canyon was my most favorite trip was because we had the most fun, and the best guides. They were so funny and would make everything fun. They were also very talkative and made the best food ever! They would tell us all of these facts about the canyon like when a plane crashed and we got to see all of the debris or some facts about when the canyon was forming. Even at night they would tell us some scary stories.
Overall, going to the Grand Canyon was my most favorite trip because we went to the Grand Canyon, who wouldn't like it there?! The second reason is because we got to go on a raft through the Grand Canyon, and we had the best guides ever! Well, that's all for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
