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!
