Practice Story

We chose the interviewee (Preston) because he was the one telling the story (working as a teen). He knew everything so and gave the story . Director/Reporter/Voiceover: Campbell and Editor/Producer/Interviewee/Writer: Maceo. and Preston was the interviewee. Everyone worked in their specific roles just fine, everyone contributed to each other. We all fit our job pretty good. I think this helped the outcome and turned out pretty good. We did'nt have any major problems, the only thing we struggled on was getting the audio to be super clear.

Safety is very important because if we are not safe we could hurt our self, our team mates and most importantly the camera equipment. If we are not careful and brake something and then we would have to pay a lot and would make Mr Sanderl pretty mad... But that luckily wasn't the case and got it done and its looking pretty good! After making this video I learned some key things so if I were to make another edit I would write the script simple and straight forward so the person doing the voice over can nail it and will sound great. Another thing I could do to make it look professional  would be to match the audio and make it sound really clear with no fuzz sound in the back ground. The three largest words are Audio Visual Ties. I think I could go back and make all of these better. What that means is make the audio match what your seeing on the screen.

Under the blood Red Sun

Mr. Savage is the directors of the movie, Under the Blood Red Sun. Mr. Savage had the roll of planning the whole movie and how it would play out, so he had to draw every scene and clip so it would match the book. It was written as a book 20 years ago and they made the film in 2013. It started as a dream then they made it a reality. One of the hardest things for them was finding the right cast. Finally they found there cast and started filming on Oahu. They had a very small budget to film with so they had to try their best. It took them about 8 months to finish the movie. You can check this movie out on  Flix Premiere .

The first question I asked was what year did you start filming? He told me 2013. My next question was how long did it take to film then he told me 8 months which he had to film everyday. Another question I asked was what was the hardest thing to film and then he told me the pigeons. He had to find his friend who made props for movies, so he made fake birds and had a little pump to add fake blood to the birds for the scene. He shipped them all the way from Florida. My last question I asked was after watching the movie would you go back and change anything? He replied right away yes but no.. Then he said no, he would not change anything.  He was very satisfied with the way the movie came out and the message it sends with it.

Public Service Announcement

A powerful PSA will teach you and persuade you to do better. I think a PSA could persuade someone but its on them if you want to listen. My group is hoping to spread awareness and some facts to make you think again. Our topic is about no texting and driving and fight the bite. I think these two topics are great because our age group can relate to both so it makes easier to follow and understand. We are going to make it as real and informational as we can.

Next we entered a contest called oleo youth exchange. The rules are make it inspiring, not over 30 secs, less is more. I think its good that they are having these contests because it makes kids look into these problems and educate more people. The kids are benefiting the most because we are learning and getting money out of it. It makes kids think outside the box and get creative. As a group we all learned so much about how to work final cut and the cameras.

Our groups PSA changed a lot from the rough cut to the final cut. The rough draft had poor sound quality and spaces between clips. We went back and re filmed the sound and audio. we matched it so it wasn't so loud and we got it perfect. We added more clips and it looks way better. It was defiantly better and well worth it. We got some good tips and tried to apply them to make our video even better. Hope you guys enjoyed!

In conclusion I am happy with the way our video turned out. It was our first time doing something like that so we just took it step by step. I learned a-lot about editing and of course filming. How to make good B roll and editing the clips smoothly and match the audio so it fits perfectly.

A cinemagraph is a looped video. I used a video of a kid running in a grass field and a flag in the back ground. The steps to create are pretty simple. Shoot it, download it edit it and splice it together. My strengths were videoing it and finding a good angle. My weekness are remenbering all the controls on the editer app. I am going to try again with another video soon to practice and try make my next one better.

My plan for my second cinemagraph is to poor a cup of water onto the ground. I am going to film it at school. The setting will be outside with a colorful background with good lighting and my phone as the camera. The person's hand will be frozen and the water will be in action. I am going to try get it as smooth as possible with different transitions.

I think this cinemagraph went great! We tried a couple different things but this ended up being the best clip. It is everything i expected i think it turned out pretty good. Cinemagraphs make you look at the most importantant part of the screen which helps the people out and i think they enjoy that. Its different because videos, everything moves as a photo nothing movies and cinemagraphs are right in the middle which I think is super cool! The critque results were great I think. My highest score was a 2.9 because it really wasn't original. My lowest score was a 2.7, i think i could have edited a little better and take a bit more time on it. Over all I was happy with the outcome of all three projects.
