I watch the music video to my favorite song,Roar on YouTube. My favorite part is in the beginning when the guy gets attacked by a tiger. I think the music video is about how she tries to be the ruler of the jungle and communicate with the animals. It’s pretty cool. I loved it. It’s my favorite song.
This weeks blog topic is a world without music. It is very hard to even think of a world without music it’s like telling a dog to not bark in their life. It’s almost impossible. For example without music in the movie Percy Jackson and The Sea of Monsters then there wouldn’t be a lot of tension, you wouldn’t be able to tell if it’s dramatic scene, and you wouldn’t notice their mood or emotion.
Since Percy Jackson and The Sea of Monsters has a lot of tension when the mechanical bull crashed through the barrier and tried to kill Percy. Without music I wouldn’t have known that the bull was coming until it showed up on the screen, so without music that would have changed my experience on watching that part of the movie.
Dramatic scenes are are easy to find if you pay attention to the music. In the movie Tyson, Percy’s brother, fell off the cliff during a fight and Percy thought he died so there was dramatic music, but without music you wouldn’t be able to get the tell if it was a dramatic scene, happy scene, or a sad scene unless you saw Tyson fall off the cliff . You wouldn’t be wouldn’t tell the difference.
And lastly and I saw the movie Percy Jackson and The Sea of Monsters there was a part where the mechanical bull and ran through the barrier and destroyed the place where Percy lives and so after Percy destroyed the bull he looked back at the destruction and there was music and it related to his mood which was shocked. And well with no music I wouldn’t have been able to tell if he was sad, mad, angry, or shocked
If there was no music in the movie Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters didn’t have any music it would really change the way I saw the movie. To me not having music in movies would really affect the way you see movie. So not having music in movies could really make it kind of boring.
This weeks blog is about a drawing website on YouTube with video clips on how to draw . I used this website to learn how to draw cute manga characters. This website shows how to draw cartoon celebrities and movie characters. This lady can draw a cartoon Arriana Grande, Taylor Swift, One Direction, and more. Her name in Mei Yu and her new drawings that are movie characters are the despicable me minion and Pikachu the Pokemon character. These bubble head characters are easy to draw. So check out her website, just type in youtube.com/Fun2draw and remember her name is Mei Yu so if you don’t want to type the website in then just type in the search bar “Mei Yu’s fun to draw pictures.”
So far I have managed to master quite a bit. For example I have mastered the tri-caster for morning announcements. Also I have mastered how to do the advisory game and how to post blog comments and upload them to the server.
Working camera B for morning announcements is kind of easy. All you do is turn the camera on and cross fade (merge) the two people and line their eyes up to match each other. Then we make sure that the mic and tv is on. So it’s kind of simple, isn’t it?
Another mastered skill is that I know how to make a advisory game. Right now I am pretty much finished with the advisory game script. I already finished my power point slides. So Annie and I are almost finished.
And lastly I mastered posting blog comments for other people. To upload comments to the CKTV server you press command, shift, 4 to take a screen shot of the comment then you go in to your blog comments folder and then drag the screen shot in to the folder.
So I mastered simple skills but I am hoping that later on in the year I will be able to learn harder things or get better at skills to become better at media.
Hi this is Kelli,
Media is no walk in the park. It’s hard work and you have to earn your free time by finishing your work. I have had some trouble with interviews, argumentative essay, and trying to get the radios done.
The biggest obstacle in media is the interviews. I think interviews were a hard obstacle to go around because the two people we interviewed talked for over 3 minutes. One talked for at least 10 minute and the other one talked for at least 8 minutes. On top of that the third interview we did the mic. was turning off automatically, and Annie and I were worried that our interview was not going to be finished that day and we would have to come back. But luckily the person we were interviewing had spare batteries and it turned out that it just needed new batteries.
The second biggest obstacle I had to face is argumentative essay. This is a assignment that we do every week. This usually lasts us almost the whole period so that’s one less day we have to use every week. So it makes finishing the project harder than it already is. It’s a major set back but I come in after school to make it up.
Since our radios are due 3 weeks from now, my job is to look for the events that are happening the week we are on air whale Annie is doing the scripts for advisory games or working on the project. One problem is that I still need to learn how to make a script and because of the argumentative essay we are falling behind a little at a time.
So does this change the way you see media? Does media still seem easy to you? I know that it is hard for me. But it’s a good way to learn about time management.
Hi everyone this is Kelli,
So you probably heard that the iOS 7 is coming out soon. I cant wait to see what its like. They have made a new app that’s called Air play and its only on the iOS 7. This app lets you send videos to friends and it doesn’t require Internet connection. I am so exited.
In this blog I’m going to talk about my favorite movie. My favorite movie is Percy Jackson and the sea of monsters. I like this movie because it talks about the Greek gods and their kids with powers. Percy Jackson is the son of Poseidon he can control the water, Percy’s brother Tyson can control the water too he is also the son of Poseidon but he is half cyclops, Annabelle is the daughter of Athena and has the power of wisdom, Groover is The Lord of the Wild, Clarisse is the daughter of Ares, and Luke the friend that turned on them is the son of Hermes he has the ability to teleport and he is also a master thief. It’s a good movie you should go check it out in theaters. There are some parts that are super funny like one of the pictures below Groover dressed up like cyclops with a fake eye so that he wouldn’t get eaten by a real cyclops even though Groover is a half blood he is half goat and half human.
In the movie they have some good shots like framing, close-up, and wide. The actors are good at acting and they add a little humor to the movie. I don’t know if you would like the movie because you kind of have to know the Greek mythology to understand it better… But I enjoyed it so that’s my favorite movie so far. So until next week bye
Its a new week which means a new blog. This week Annie and I are now trying to get our scripts done. Also since we got assigned Friday games we have to finish taking pictures. And lastly we are going to start radios for 4 weeks prior.
I am first going to talk about our first quarter project.Both of us are done with transcribing. So now we get to make our scripts. Since I am a new comer… Annie will teach me how to make a script. We also got some B-roll to put in our video. Two of the people we interviewed gave us some B-roll to use. So our first quarter project is going pretty good.
Secondly I will talk about what we have been planning on doing for Advisory games. Annie and I are planning on doing “name that place in campus”. Annie and I started to take pictures of places in school for example… Hupu play court, the trophy in the library, and the bars on the play field. On Tuesday we are planning on finishing taking pictures of the rest of the places in campus. So we are right on track.
Annie and I are starting on our radios for four weeks prior to the due date. This means that we must inform our parents of the due date. Then I meet with Annie to determine our script responsibilities.So sometimes people make it that the experienced person is Monday, the new comer Wednesday and, the experienced person is Friday. After that we check school websites to begin gathering information on what we can use. So I hope we finish in time.
So all our projects are doing good so far. I am so happy that we are starting on our radios and advisory games. For our first quarter project I am exited to start to learn how to make scripts. So I guess this is the end of my blog okay bbbyyyeee!
