Secondly, you have to pay attention to everything you doing media because trust me they'll be a time when you don't and you're going to regret it. When I was in seventh grade, my friend and I were trying to input footage and we actually stuck it in the wrong slot, then another one of my friends try to get it out and we ended up all getting in trouble. The lesson from the story is to always pay attention to where you put the SD card, no matter whether you already know where to put it or not. Remember that it doesn't hurt to double check. When you're inputting footage into your computer, never put it straight onto the desktop and create a folder. By doing so you're taking up twice the amount of space on your computer, which fills up your start up disk faster. Trust me when your start up disk is full it's a real hassle to have to transfer your footage onto an extra I'll drive and get it to a different computer. To import your footage, just import it into Final Cut Pro because it automatically saves your footage and you're not going to fill up your start up disk as fast.
Lastly, always do your blogs especially when you're on the STN trip. If you don't keep up on your blogs during the STN trip, it will suddenly start to pile up on you and it takes a while to catch up. The best thing to do is to use your notes and write down your blog on your notes so that once you return back to your hotel you can just copy and paste it onto your blog and publish it. This year I wrote my blogs in line when going onto roller coasters or waiting in line to order food. When you get to the hotel you'll be very tired and you feel like just going back to sleep instead of doing your blogs, (bad idea).
I'm glad I got to share three pieces of advice with all you newcomers. I hope you enjoy media as much as I've enjoyed it for two years. I will truly miss media, and I know that you will truly love it. How fun and ALOHAS!!! Till next time, BYE!
