ATTENTION! ATTENTION! I AM OBSESSED WITH SONG! I am in love with this actress named, Shay Mitchell. I have also been watching the you-tuber, Logan Paul. He's so funny and he has awesome vlogging skills and editing skills. Both of them are so amazing and incredible. Now I thought this week, I would show you a music video that recently came out. It's a very catchy song and the shots are so well done. Now Logan Paul directed this film, helped shoot the shots, planned it all out, acted in it, and even edited it all together. One thing I love the most about this video is the quality of the shots. The lighting is so stinking good. It makes every single shot pop out with color and clearness. Also, the shots go so smooth together. To explain, it not's really cutting off anything. It's one shot then slides into a whole new shot. It's not cutting through one shot just to hop into a random part of another one. In conclusion, CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO!!! It is so good. Don't forget to also check out Logan Paul's channel, and Shay Mitchell's. Also check out, "Why Don't We" channel. BYE!
Hello everyone! This week's blog topic is super important. Just like all the different lessons we learn in life. Oh wait, that's this week's blog topic. Our topic for this week will be my three most important lessons from this past year in media. My three most important lessons I learned are trying to finish deadlines before time instead of waiting until last minute, how much teamwork means, and trusting one another.
To start off with, I learned to finish deadlines before time instead of waiting until last minute. Now I sometimes struggle with this, but not as much as I used too. Out of all my projects, each one I got better without procrastinating. On my P.S.A it was so easy, because I never lost track of what I had to do. It made my life a whole lot easier not having stress pile on both of my shoulders.
Secondly, I learned how much teamwork means. You know those times where you say you can finish something alone, but then it's too hard so you tend to just skip it. Well, if you don't, teamwork solves this issue. Not only this, but it helps you with being social with people and learning to communicate through work. This can help you in a job in the future, because everyone has to work together at some point.
Last but not least, I leaned how to trust one another. Before, I could trust people, but it's the trust that's hard when you meet someone. When I met my partner I already knew her a little, so I could trust her. But it was trusting her with editing a project, finishing radios, that was so hard for me. I was so nervous because my whole grade depended on it. But now it's all good.
To conclude, my three most important lessons I learned are trying to finish deadlines before time instead of waiting until last minute, how much teamwork means, and trusting one another. Media taught me a lot of other things and I'm so grateful to have learned them. Thanks media!
Hello guys, for this week's blog topic I will be sharing with you guys what video I will be showing at family night for media. There were a lot of videos I wanted to show, but I felt like I should show a certain one. The video I will be showing is our first anchoring practice for STN. Here are three reasons why I felt I should show it!
The first reason is because I feel that it shows how far we went from the beginning to the end. For instance, it's incredible how much I've learned and I'm so thankful I got to experience this feeling of motivation and rush you get when you finish. I'm hoping people will watch this video and see how much my teammates and I have grown. We really put a lot of hard work into the practices, and STN. ESPECIALLY STN.
Secondly, I wanted to show how much my teammates have done to help make this experience incredible. For example, Taylor N showed me so many things. Such as writing anchor scripts, having an on camera presence, dealing with huge deadlines, and so many other things. Taylor if you're reading this, I love you and thank you! Now Ty. You are a very hardworking potato. I am so proud of how much you've learned and it's amazing how much knowledge you have in your brain. I'm going to miss you guys so much next year.
Lastly, I would like to show this video because it has so many memories behind it. Since I'm leaving and won't be back for next year, I wanted a video that would bring back memories to my eyes. The practice we had, Taylor and I had some interesting conversations and me and TY got closer. Also, all the stress that was on our plates that day was incredible, but we still made one of our deadlines. I will never forget this practice and all the memories that came from it.
To conclude, these are three reasons why I'm showing the first anchoring video for the media family night. I am so excited to show it to everyone, especially my fellow classmates. That we can all look back and find those old memories. A lot of people are leaving and I feel that this night is more of a looking back night, not really a celebration night. Well, this concludes this blog. Bye!
For this week's blog post I am writing about how my team for Kauai Grown is doing and our progress. Three things I will be sharing with you is what my team has done so far, what I will be doing this week to make some progress, and some obstacles that are getting in my way to getting things done. Here they are!
First of all, my team has started on figuring what type of pictures we want to show for our post. To explain, we're the Instagram team so we introduce this program, which means the responsibilities are pretty big. Like if we posted a wrong picture, than we could introduce the wrong idea of the program. Basically we are presenting an image that shows all the produce and famers markets on the island, so if we deciede to post a picture of a beach, it's not relative to what we want to show people. If any of that makes sense. Furthermore, when looking for pictures(which we're still doing,) we are trying to find some that present the program in a good way and grab the viewers eyes.
Secondly, what I will be doing this week to make some progress is helping come up with the captions to the photos. It may seem super easy, but it's hard to me because I normally explain things with a lot of words. But in these posts I have to sum it up in less than 5 sentences, which is hard for me. So it's nice having Carter with me to organize it all. I also enjoy making the captions because I like the fact that what you write something and someone will see, which leads to it maybe changing someones feelings, or way they look at things. It's different with these post though, because you have to be educational and logical.
Also, some obstacles that are getting in my way to getting things done is basically my dumb remarks in my head. What I mean, is like because we're doing this instead of normal projects I think I can kinda lay off. So this has been keeping me from doing a lot of work. But I'm going to change this, because I want to do good and get a good grade. I think it's normal to think these things, but it's still not good. Like last year, I had a lot of stress to finish filming, but this year I don't feel the urge to reach so far.
To conclude, these our three things that are happening right now in my process system to getting a good grade and introducing this program. All the negatives I will try to fix, and all the positives I will keep on doing. Media definitely puts a lot of things on your chest, and this is a huge one. Hopefully I can finish it strong! BYE!!!
Hey buddies...that sounded weird. Hey everyone, so I hoped you were looking at my STN Blogs page because this week I’m talking about my top three moments/ learnings from the STN trip. There are so many amazing things that happened, that I want to share with you guys. But, first of all I’m lazy and second of all I want you guys to not be overwhelmed. So let’s get right into it. My top three moments/ learnings are getting over my fear of roller coasters, going to the famous Disney Animation Studios, and learning about being proud of my work no matter what or where it places in.
First of all, I got over my fear of rollercoasters. I know what your thinking. She’s 13 and is afraid of roller coasters? Well yes, yes I was. Just the ones with the big drops and upside downs. But on this trip, I went on as much as I can. Except for one and it was California scream. In the beginning I did not want to go on it like at all, but then it started looking like a lot of fun so I wanted to go on it. But two times, the ride was closed so that must've been a sign. I also went on a ride called Splash Mountain and it was so much fun. And there was one ride, where we were all in the raft and it was spinning around and around. There was also super fun drops! It was probably one of my favorite rides.
Secondly, I absolutely loved going to Disney Animation Studios for a tour. I SAW JOSH GAD!!!! That was probably my favorite part, even though the tour was really good. We got to see how the disney movies include so much concentration and jobs. To explain, it takes more than 700 people just to make one movie. That’s a lot of people to keep track of, especially when it comes down to who makes the deadlines and stuff. Also, animation probably takes most of that amount of people because of how much frames that have to be made.
Lastly, I learned about being proud of my work no matter what or where it places in. To explain, I realized that the only important thing is being proud of your work. And of course it feels awesome to win a medal or a trophy, but when you finish something and you're proud of it, there’s no beating that feeling. After I came back from the trip I watched my anchoring video, and I didn’t think of what place we scored it in, only how awesome we felt turning it in. That was probably one of the biggest lessons I learned on this trip.
In conclusion, this trip had many highlights and moments that stuck out to me. But these three really got into my head. I am so blessed to have all these memories with my class and all my friends in it. It would not be the same if just one person wasn't there. So this wraps up this week's blog, if you would like to read about what I did over the trip, go visit my STN Blogs page. BYE!!!
Hey everyone! So in my media class, we're preparing for STN. This past weekend, we did a crazy 8's practice and I'm on the news magazine. This was a very interesting practice because we had some problems, but at the same time we made good progress. Some things my team could work on is deadlines, working together calm and patiently. Also, finding stories that really bring the best out of the topic that's given.
First of all, my team needs to work on deadlines. To explain, Taylor and I had a really hard time editing all the stories together because the people in charge of doing the stories finished way after their deadline. And even after that, the videos still weren't finished. So the final product was pretty messy and wasn't as nice as it could've been. The topic wasn't that spot on either, it went in a whole bunch of different directions.
Secondly, I think my team should work on working together calm and patiently. For example, if someone is trying to work, people shouldn't yell at the person and cause drama. They should help him/her get it done. At this practice, people were yelling at people and saying rude things pretty much every single time someone messed up. There were times people were nice to each other and helped out, but other times it was bad. As a team, we need to have trust, faith, and we should be able to help someone before they ask.
Last but not least, we need to find stories that bring out the best of the topic. For instance, we need to have stories that bring a huge impact to it's community and the people around it. Also, say the topic was harmony in nature, we have to find a story that represents this topic, and not something representing technology or food. It's pretty much common sense, but some people don't really understand it.
To conclude, I have been to a lot of practices and even though this practice had some ups and down, I have hope that we will do good in S.T.N. I'm excited to see how it all turns out and the outcome of all our hard work. Thanks for reading, BYE!!!
Hey guys! Today, I am going to talk about our fourth quarter project, which instead of doing a regular fourth quarter project, we will be doing an all class project introducing Kauai Grown. We will have a bunch of different categorized teams we can be on, and we will have a designed team leader. For me, I would like to be on the Instagram team. Three reasons why I think I should be on the team is because I have lots of experience with media, I go on Instagram on a daily basis(so a lot,) and I feel like I could really show what this business is about.
To start off with, I have lots of experience with media. For example, in my class we do news stories. We find something big or even something small impacting the island. I have done four new stories so far and I feel confident and proud of all of them.I feel like I can really introduce Kauai Grown to our Island and show the impact of having a business like that. Also, every other day in my media class we use technology the whole entire time which gives us a lot of practice when we want to showcase a project or an event to our community.
Secondly, I would like to be on the Instagram team because I go on Instagram on a daily basis. It's a lot when you go on it on a daily basis because you're basically glued to social media. To me I feel like this will really help the Instagram team if they're always caught up on their followers and what to post to keep the company running. Something really important is how they're representing the company. I'm used to all the different features and how this app works so I feel like I can really make a great contribution to this team.
Last but not least, I can really show what this business is about. To explain, I could give details about their different showings and get the followers interested in why this business is on our Island. Kauai Grown is all about plants and the amazing crops we grow on our Island, and I feel like this company should really be known to a lot of people. So that they see our Island as a beautiful and tropical place. I also really want to not only put pictures up explaining what you can see, but also the workers and Farmers there that help bring the whole business together.
To conclude, Kauai Grown is an amazing business and my media class and I are so excited to be working on this project. I hope I am able to be on this team, and to represent this business through social media. CKTV Media will bring this business to a whole new level and we're all excited to see the outcome. Well this is all for this week, I'm going to be doing a blog next week, BYE!!!
What's up guys! So this past week was President's Day! Because of this, my classes blog topic was going to be based around what we think are 3 of the most important traits of a president. Three important traits to me are humility, kindness, and being trustworthy. These are all so important and here's some reasons why!
First of all, one trait a president should definitely have is humility. We do not want a president who goes around posting stuff about him/her and then having a bunch of our citizens think that they don't care about us, or what we have to say. To explain, I feel that are president should feel that we're all equal and no that if he's going to lead this country, he will need all of the citizens votes,hearts, and faith in him. It's like if a manager boasted about him always getting a promotion and none of the workers do, those workers aren't going to want to work for him anymore. They're going to think that he doesn't care about them.
Secondly, another trait a president should have is kindness. To me, I think that a president should be willing to share his ideas and not having to yell all the time. Also, be able to take other people's ideas into consideration. A lot of times when people are in charge they always have power so they don't really like engaging in conversation, but for a president you need to be kind so you can talk with people and find out how to make our country amazing. I feel like this is a really big trait because we have to show it so why shouldn't the leader of our country?
Lastly, a trait is trustworthy. You can't have a president that will go leaking very important information into different countries. You have to be able to be trustworthy enough to keep that information inside our country and not let it go out everywhere. Plus, if someone tells you something you can't spill it all over the news like how some of our past presidents have. This is the biggest trait to me because it's like us. We always tell people something and then it spreads around, but when you're a president you can't do this. It becomes a huge problem that you can't afford to fix.
To conclude, humility, kindness, and being trustworthy are 3 major traits of being a great president. They are all so important and right now we really, really need our president to show these. There also super amazing traits from our past president, Barack Obama. Now let's see if our new president can fill his shoes!
Hey guys, so right now media is running our school's morning announcements. It's going pretty good, but in the beginning it was a little rough for me. I've come up with three ways to make the announcements better for the audience. My three ways are to talk about more things related to next years classes, more Kauai events, and maybe just ask the audience what they want to see.
First of all, in the announcements I was thinking that we should talk about next years classes because it can educate the audience more about what they're signing up for. To explain, one of the announcers could mention that there's a dance class next year and explain what you do in the class. They could also talk about who's teaching it and what the class offers to our lives. I would really like to see this on the announcements because I also have questions of my own.
Secondly, I thought that there should be more Kauai events. For example, if there's a basketball game, we should know about it. In a lot of schools, kids are stuck to technology. We need to get our more, and announcing these events could really help. We already announce events, but I think all we need to do is announce more sports. A lot of my friends do football and swim. Maybe announcing these events, could bring the non-athelets to these games and make them want to do sports.
Lastly, I think we should ask the audience what they want to see. The best way to entertain an audience is to know how they're entertained. For instance, one announcer could say, "Hey, we were wondering what improvements you would want to see on the announcements. Tell your teacher to email Mr.M your suggestions and we will try to put them in." I think this would really help the announcements become more exciting to the students. Plus, a lot of students have really good ideas out there that we shouldn't ignore.
To conclude, these are three ways to improve the announcements. I hope we get to try them out and see how they do. Our media classes goal is to be good to great and I think this really goes into our announcements too.
