Hey everyone! Today I am going to talk to you about a movie I watched a couple of weeks ago called "The Imitation Game". I really wanted to share this with you guys because this movie was really awesome. It was about when the Germans were against the British and the Germans were sending messages that no one could figure out. Britain tried to gathered up a bunch of really smart people to try to figure out the messages. Finally Alan Turing (Creator of the computer) built this machine and figured it out. I really thought it was a great movie with the old history about World War II. It was just really good and if you guys can watch it you should. Well thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! This weeks topic what’s our favorite holiday is. And of course, mine is Christmas! I love everything about it! The lights, the family bonding, the cold weather, and more! But I especially love the food, gift sharing, and the snow. Not that we get any on island, but when I travel there is certainly a lot of it!
So I very excited about food...who isn’t? But I love cooking with my family, and then later eating it. My favorite Christmas food is stuffing, even though some consider it a Thanksgiving food, I think it’s great year round. But I very much love Christmas for the food, but that’s not the only reason I like this holiday.
So of course, like everyone, I love Christmas because of gifts! I know it’s one of the wronger reasons to, but come on, who doesn’t like opening free stuff. I love the thought of Christmas, the wish list, the hot chocolate, the christmas tree and much more. I try not to be greedy because there are people out there who are less fortunate then my family and I, but it still is fun!
And last but not least, not that we have any here, snow! So since we don’t have much or any snow here, it’s still fun to see it on the mainland. I love how cold it is and I also really love playing in it and skiing in it I am going off island for Christmas and I’m planning to see lots of snow.
Overall, I think Christmas these are the three reasons I enjoy Christmas the most! I love food with my family. I enjoy sharing of gifts! But I love the snowy and cold weather! Well, that’s it for this blog post, thank you for reading, and have a great day!
Hey everyone! A couple of days ago I saw this video called "The Immune System Explained". I thought it was a super cool video because they explained how the immune system works to fight an infection. They had really good animations that I would probably never be able to do. I also thought they explained it really well without confusing you to much. Overall I really suggest you watch this video because it really taught me a lot of things about the body. Well, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Today I’ll be talking about what I’m thankful for. Since Thursday is Thanksgiving, I this is is a very suitable blog topic. So three things I am thankful for are health, family, friends. All of these things impact my life in many different ways.
So one thing I am very thankful for is my family. My mom supports me and loves me, and my dad as well. My relatives also help me when I’m down or need help in certain things. Even though my CKTV Ohana isn’t my real family, they have also helped me a lot in media as well. When I need help, one of my classmates is always there for me.
My health is another serious thing that I am very thankful for. I am very lucky to live in a country where healthcare is provided for my family and I. These are the kind of things that I try not to take for granted. When I get sick, I know it sucks but at least I know I’ll get better eventually. I am so thankful that I am not really unhealthy and have to worry about my health that much.
And the last thing I am thankful for would definitely have to my great friends. My CKTV Ohana are my great friends, and they’re the ones who help me a lot in everything. For example, if I’m filming and I need a fast enough SD card, I know I can count on everyone in my class to help me out and lend me one. I am also thankful for my friends outside of media. They are awesome and always are there for me, and I never get bored when I hang out with them. I am very grateful for all of the people in my life who can help me through all of my problems.
So all and all, throughout everything I’ve been through in my life, I know I can count on all of the special in my life have always helped me out. And I am very very grateful for that. Whether it’s my health, family, or friends, I will always be grateful for even the smallest things in my life. That’s all for this weeks blog, thanks for reading, and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Yesterday was a pretty sad day because one of my favorite Youtuber, Casey Neistat, has ended his daily vlogs. I was so sad about this because he is such a good filmmaker and I loved watching is daily vlogs and I didn't want it to stop. Everything has to come to an end though so I guess this is it. He basically got vlogging really popular and started an era of vlogging. Now he's just going to make regular videos and his videos are not going to be so frequent. Anyways, I think he is a very successful person and just started at a disadvantage. At a young age he was bullied and not so smart but he never gave up. He got really interested into film making and started making movies and other things. He now has a big Youtube channel and even has his own app. I think he makes awesome movies and now he does vlogs and I think that is awesome. Overall, I think that Casey Neistat is a very successful and a good filmmaker and you should definitely watch him of you haven't. I am going to miss his vlogs but I will never forget then, and maybe someday I'll do them too. Well, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Here is his last vlog
Here is one of his regular vlogs
And here is one of his movies that he made
Hey everyone! Today I am going to write about a the presidential election that happened about 2 weeks ago. To me, I thought that the election was horrible, and a scary event, not only for us but for young kids who have to hear all of this negativity. Three things that I learned or noticed from this election is that our country has gotten really bad and violent, and the next thing is that American citizens are so naive on picking a president. The last thing is that what if Bernie Sanders was our president.
The first this I learned from this presidential election is that this country has gotten really bad. When Barack Obama was president, he was so awesome and such a kind person to everyone. Yeah, sometimes he messed up and did stuff that people didn’t like, but who doesn’t make mistakes. I just wish he could stay longer because he was such an awesome guy, and now we a not so nice guy as our president.
The next thing that I learned from this election is that some people in the U.S. don’t know the mistake they made by choosing Donald Trump as our president. Unlike Barack Obama, he is so mean, selfish, racist and so much more. He only cares about himself imagine how much he actually cares about the us and about the U.S. Why would people vote for such a hateful person, I mean he even teasing people who have disabilities. Too bad we couldn’t have a person who actually cares about other people as our president.
The last thing that I noticed about this election is that what if Bernie Sanders didn’t lost the democratic side’s vote. Bernie is a really nice guy and cares about other people than himself. If he would’ve been our president, I think that we would have been a better country than a country controlled by Donald Trump.
Overall, I’ve learned a lot from this nasty presidential election. The first thing is that our country has gotten really bad and violent, and the next thing is that American citizens are so naive on picking a president. The last thing is that what if Bernie Sanders was our president. Well, that’s it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a great day!
Hey everyone! Today for my second blog I am going to write about this movie I saw called "The Revenant". This movie is placed in the 1820's and is about this guy who gets attacked by a bear and seriously injured, then gets left behind by his friends and has to survive on his own. I thought this movie was really awesome through because of it's way of filming. The camera was always super close and followed the actor. The camera even got so close that the actor fogged up the camera twice and it even got blood on it. Overall, I thought this movie had a super good story, and cinematography. Well, thank you for reading and have a good one!
Hey everyone! Today I'm going to write about where Evan and I are for our 2nd quarter project. Are we ahead of schedule, on track, or behind of schedule. To me, I think that we are a little bit behind of schedule and the first reason is because we only got our interviews and b-roll this past week. The second reason why I think we are behind of schedule is because we still have to go back and film some stuff. The last reason why we are behind is because we have to transcribe, make a script, and edit our video.
The first reason why I think we are behind because we had to find a new project to do and we only got our interviews and b-roll done. We first had our project on this Hawaii ambassador but then he was unable to do it because he had a surgery and wouldn't be able to do anything for about a month. Right after that we looked for a new story and got one on the Aloha Aina Juice Cafe. Then we called them and we got one this week and we filmed about everything we needed.
The next reason why I feel that I'm a little behind because we still have to go back and film next week. After we got our footage, we realized we still need to go back and film some b-roll and interviews. Next week we already scheduled an interview and some time to film b-roll so I think that now we are a little bit less behind. I still think we are behind though because we were supposed to be done with filming interviews about 2 weeks ago.
The last and final reason why I think we are behind of schedule is because we still have to transcribe, make our scripts, and edit our video. That all together is going to take very long, but what's going to take the longest is transcriptions and making the script. We haven't started our anything yet so that's why I think that we behind of schedule.
Overall, I think that we are behind of schedule is because we only got our interviews and b-roll this past week. The second reason why I think we are behind of schedule is because we still have to go back and film some stuff. The last reason why we are behind is because we have to transcribe, make a script, and edit our video. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading, and have a great day.
Hey everyone! Today I am going to talk about this guy on Youtube called Zach King. When I first saw this guy and his videos, I was super amazed at what he can do!

I'm just so amazed of what he can do and you should definitely check him out. Well, that's it for this blog post, thank you for reading and have a good one!

Hey everyone! Today I am going to talk about this video that I saw a couple of weeks ago called "I just sued the school system". I thought this video is not only good with the sequences and nice shots, but it also makes you think a lot about school and how it actually is. With the music, and the words he says makes you think more about what school actually does. I also like the props and all of his things that he uses for this video. Well, that's if for this blog post, if you haven't checked out this video that I'm talking about you definitely should, thank you for reading and have a good one!
