Hey guys! During the media summer camp, they showed me this cool video called "Brainstorm". This video is unique because they filmed the video in a one shot scene. It was filmed by this cool camera called the DJI Ronin. In the video below, there are parts where the camera is hand held and also attached to a hanging position so it looks like the camera is flying. If you watch the video, there are many scenes, but they are all taken in one shot. I thought it was pretty cool, I hope you think so too.
What's up guys! This week I will be talking about how i'm doing on my first project that i'm doing for media so far. It is about the Malama Hule'ia organization that cleans up the Red Mangrove (an invasive plant species). So far, I feel that we are just about on track. Here are some strategies that my partner, Dalson, and I used to stay on track.
The first strategy we used was having good time management. This is important in many ways. For example, we contacted our interviewees a week before interviews were due. We had to inform them that our interviews were due on Monday so they only had a week to meet with us. We got on that as soon as we heard from Dr. Berg, Ms. Martin, and Mr. Trask. During the interviews, Dalson taught me about the strategies of filming like making sure audio works, camera placed to eye level, and no distractions in the background.
During this project, we did our best to stay organized. For example, during class we viewed all three interviews. Dalson helped me look for good audio, good footage, and he taught me about the B-roll like videos and pictures of the setting. I think the videos will be okay for our project.
We are also on track because we worked on transcribing this week. We listened to the interviews and wrote down all the questions and all of the interviewees' replies. It took us about two days to work on transcribing.
In conclusion these are the reasons why I feel that we are on track. Hopefully we can stay on schedule so we can meet the deadlines and complete a good project.
Hey guys! This second blog of the week will be a free blog but of of course it has to be media related. So, I will talk to you about my very first video I made with my go-pro. I took a couple videos with my go-pro at my football team's pool party. It was fun doing cool videos of my friends and I doing flips and cannon balls down the big slide. I also got to make cool edits afterwards. Some things I weren't aware of was there were air bubbles or water bubbles on the lens of the go-pro which makes the video a little blurry. Also, I had to hold the go-pro more steady while I was going down the slide. Now I know now what to do to make a good go-pro video. Thanks for reading this blog and don't forget to watch my go-pro video below.
Aron here! Today I'm going to talk to you about some of the challenges I had so far during my first weeks of media. Because I am a first year student, I came across a lot of new and unfamiliar things. Some of the challenges were being responsible for my assignments, scheduling interviews, and learning how to use the equipment.
My first challenge, is to have a schedule and organize my media work. I have to learn many things like time management, meeting deadlines, and having high quality work in my assignments.
Another challenge, was to schedule and do interviews with my partner Dalson. It was challenging because we had to schedule a specific time and place of where Dalson and I were to meet the interviewee. I felt it was a short notice because the person we wanted to interview could only meet on a specific day. Feeling uncomfortable talking to strangers was a challenge for me.
And last, it was challenging for me to learn about the media equipment. First, I had to check the equipment out from Mr. M, but I wasn't sure what I needed. Dalson was out sick, so it was extra difficult for me to make sure we had everything we need to do the interview. Thanks to Mr. M and other media friends who helped me. We had to see if it worked or not because if it didn't work while we were interviewing it would be a waste of time and we would have to reschedule the interview.
In conclusion, media class is not easy. I faced many challenges and I am slowly learning each day so that I can face the upcoming challenges during the course of this media class.
Hey Everyone. This is my very first blog of the school year, so let me tell you a little about myself. I am a 6th grader of Cheifess Kamakahelei Middle School and I am a new student in the CKMS Media Program. Today, I'm going to talk about my very first week of media. It was a very interesting and challenging week. There was a a lot of new things for me to learn. Here are three things that I'm going to talk to you about during my first week of media.
First, I had to learn all the expectations and responsibilities of this media class. For example, some things I am expected and responsible for is meeting deadlines for our projects, taking care of media equipment, pay attention in class, and listen to the teacher and follow directions.
Next, I got to meet lots of new friends. Speaking of meeting new friends, I met partner, Dalson Cua. I think Dalson is a good partner for me because I think he will lead me to success. Also, it is his third year in the media class and I know he can teach me lots of stuff from the experience he had the past two years. One new thing my partner helped me with was creating my website. He taught me how to add my own images to my site and create the different pages such as the home, blog page, project page, and inside scoops.
Finally, something new was to think of a topic together for our first quarter project. It was due this week and I think it was a little new to me because I wasn't sure what a good topic could be. Luckily, Dalson and I brainstormed ideas and I was getting worried but we did agree to do our project on an invasive plant.
In conclusion, overall, I think this first week was a little bit challenging because of the new things I learned this week. But luckily, I have a great partner that will keep me on task and guide me to do my best in this media class. Thank you for reading my first blog!
Hey guys! Last week I met Dalson Cua, my new media partner. I think Dalson is a good partner because I know he will lead me to success. Also, I think Daslon is an exellent partner because he is a third year student in this class. This week Dalson has been very helpful and very patient with me. I hope to learn many new things about media and do many fun project with my partner.
