Hey guys! For this week's free blog, i'll be talking to you about another video from my favorite youtuber, Ryan Higa. It is called,"How To Sing Like Your Favorite Artist."

Hey guys! For this week's blog topic, we were asked what is our passion. I thought to myself that this is a very interesting topic. So, my passion I feel in my mind would have to be Soccer. Why soccer? Good question. Well soccer has been my life and I have been doing it from the start. Now, I still do it. Also, all my other passions I feel aren't that special to me. Soccer is my favorite thing in the world. So, here is a little more info of my special passion in my life.
So, soccer was the very first sport I have played in my life. The way I started off with soccer is when I was 6, and my parents signed me up for AYSO or American Youth Soccer Organization. It was a soccer organization. Then later on, I tried more sports like Football, Basketball, and Baseball. But the thing is, when I play soccer, I feel something that I wouldn't feel while playing other sports. When I play soccer, I feel more confident and Positive. Later as the years go by, I still do play other sports once in a while like football, but every season of soccer I would sign up.
Now, I still do soccer and I still play. I pay for Lihue Arsenals. Also, to improve in soccer, I always love to go run to vidinha stadium and shoot goals with my friends. Also, I always like playing FIFA 16, a soccer game, with my dad because I love challenging him. Moreover, I love making cool soccer edits with my friends at the soccer field or at home.
In addition, soccer has been my life long passion and I hope as a career I can be a pro at it. I look up to my soccer idol, Lionel Messi too. Soccer has been my passion because I love the sport and I love the game.
In conclusion, soccer is my passion and I look forward to having it as a job. Thanks to soccer, I can now be the real person I really am.
Hey guys! Welcome back to my blogs. For this week's blog topic, I'm going to talk to you about my first STN Crazy 8's practice. I kinda mentioned it in a few blogs, but if you don't know, it is another competition that our class is in besides the other STN competition. Also, there are the film team and the broadcast team. Yes, I did get selected in the film team so I'll be going to talk to you about my team along the way. I'll be talking about pros and cons that happened as well.
So let's start off with some cons. There weren't quite that many cons but there was one specific one that I'd like to mention. So, the con is that our team never quite checked or tested some of our equipment. For example, for our audio, we wanted to use the boom mic, but unfortunately, to work the boom mic you need to connect it to its matching sennheiser which we didn't have.
Now for the pros. First off, there were many pros that happened during our practice. We got good shots, we had good edits, and mainly everyone worked together as a team. In my film team were Kaycee, Shaelyn, Javlynn, Kolten, Napua, Mia M, and me. I really enjoyed working with this team because they're hard workers and great teammates. Overall, I think we all did a great job in everything we did, and I think we all shared the work equally. Also, no one put anyone down, and no one was left out.
Now we got those down let's talk about things we can improve on. Like I said earlier, we forgot to check our equipment. So, before the trip, we need to make sure we have the right equipment and make sure it works. In addition, another thing that we need to work on is coming up with a more clear and understandable story. For example, the ideas and topics we came up with were good, but the only problem was that the story kinda didn't make sense.
In conclusion, our team did an awesome job and and I think this was a very useful and helpful practice. Also, to answer Mr. M's question, I don't really know a name but I was thinking "Mr. M's Mentions." Anyways, that's all the time I have for this blog so I'll see you in my next one!
Hey guys! For this week's free blog, i'll be talking to you about a video made by Niga Higa. It's called," How To Run For President. I just wanted to show you this video because of the election that will happened this year. I really liked this video because it is very creative and well thought out. Also, the shots that Ryan uses are very clear and has lots of sequence in it. Anyways, here is the video and I hope you enjoy!
Hey guys! For this week's blog post, I was asked by Mr. M's first vlog (Shoutout to Mr. M), what are my sources of content I use to get my information and news. So, my sources to get information are Social Media like Instagram, Youtube, and one of the main ones that everyone use, Google. Here are three reasons why I use these contents.
So, let's start of with social media. Social Media is a great way to gather information. Whether you're using Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media that is out there. As a young kid like me, if you have social media you probably would only have Instagram. Facebook and Twitter are kinda for older people. So, Instagram helps me find lots of stuff. The score of a recent sports game, some recent news, or even catch up on what your friends are doing. One big thing about Instagram is that someone always will post something trending whether it is a popular hashtag or a popular event that happened in the world. That is why I uses Instagram as a source of Information.
Now let's talk about Youtube. A little similar to Instagram, but way more people can see this. Youtube has many, many, many genres of videos to watch from. Gaming, Vlogging, How-to's, Music videos, or Music Videos. Almost anything you search up will have a video about it.
Finally, Google. If you don't know what google is, which you should know, it is the biggest search engine you could have on your computer. There are tons of people searching something on google every day. Google has 99% of any accurate source of information you need to know at any time and anywhere you are. All you need to do is go on your computer, type in what you want to know, then BOOM, you have your info. Also, if you want multiple sources and more specific details, you have plenty different sources to choose from. If I tried to name just 10% of what google knows, you'd be here for a long time.
In conclusion, these are the three sources of contents I use to get my information and why. That's all the time I got, bye!
Hey guys! Since Valentine's Day is coming up soon, for this week's free topic I'll be talking to you about a video made by my favorite you tuber, Ryan Higa. It's a fake movie trailer that he made. It was called, "Every Romantic Movie." It is about a new kid who moves to a different school and ends up falling in love with each other. But, I don't want to spoil anymore because there are a bunch of interesting scenes and at the end, there is an interesting twist also. In addition, the shots that Ryan uses in all of his videos are very sequenced and clear. Also, the scripts and choice of words he uses are great so that the viewers could understand the story. Anyway, here is the video and I hope you enjoy.
Hey Guys! For this weeks free blog, I am going to talk to you about a recent tv event I watched called Grease Live! That's right. Yes it is a tv event that was live. And if you don't know it was based on the old, popular, movie, Grease, that was shown in 1978. It was also actually a broadway play at first. It's about these high school friends in the 50's who experience friendships, romance, and adventures with each other. The reason I wanted to talk to you guys about this was because it was live! That means when they were aired, they had one chance to perfect it. All the actors had to ace their lines, all the songs had to be sang right, costumes had to be chaned into, but most of all, I think the most important thing was the media behind it. Audio had to be perfect, camera shots had to be clear and sequenced, and mainly just having good shots between the actors. Like I said, they had one shot. If anyone messed up, the whole world would see it. But, I think the crew was outstanding which was the reason why they perfectly got it the job done. Everything was perfect! Here is a vid of Grease Live.
Hey Guys! For this week's blog post, it is about about these contests for the Olelo Youth XChange and the Kauai Museum Art contest. So, I'll be going to talk to you about if i'm going to enter a video for the Olelo Contest, and the picture I'm submitting for the art contest.
So, me and Dalson pretty much agreed not to submit a video because first off, we didn't have any time to fix any of our videos and cut them down to two minuets, also, we couldn't revise them too. Also, most people who are submitting a video are submitting a video that was on Hiki Nō and me and Dalson's video didn't make it.
For the Kauai Museum art contest, the picture I thought of submitting was a picture I took at Kalapaki beach of a sun setting. I though this was a good picture to submit because the environment we live in is surrounded by beaches. Also, I love going to the beach every weekend, and I thought the picture of the beach would kinda give an idea on what I love and what I like to do.
I also had som second thoughts on it though. For example, media wise, it was a kinda blurry shot because I actually took it with my phone. Also, the lighting was a bit dark in the photo too. Therefore, I think I might submit another photo. This could actually be good because then I have more than one Picture to choose from.
In conclusion, these contests are just around the corner so don't forget to stay tuned for any updated info about these contests. Also, for the Olelo contest, I decided to not submit a video, and for the art contest, I am still deciding what picture I should use.
