Hi! Welcome back to my site for another blog! This week’s blog topic is about how we think we did on our PSA. I think I did pretty good on my PSA, but there are definitely some things I could have improved on if I gave myself more time. I think most of my shots were good, my audio in the beginning was good, but towards the end they were off, and I think my message was pretty clear to see.
I think most of my shots were good, except for some of the shots were out of focus and maybe a bit too long or short. Towards the end Ty was smiling when Lukas ran into him. I definitely could’ve redone that and asked him to not smile before getting run into. Another shot I could’ve redone is where Ty looked up from his phone and saw Lukas. His head kind of got cut off and I feel like it was a little too short. Other than that I think the shots were good.
My audio was good for the most part until towards the end. For about half the video, the audio was pretty balanced and there weren’t huge volume spikes and drops. Then towards the end for the last one or two shots the audio was really off. In the last shot I could’ve lowered the volume of the game. For the last and second to last shot Ty and Lukas were really loud, so I could’ve asked them to maybe not scream or talk too loud.
I think my message was clear to see. My message, “Look Around Before You Look Down” was about how you should watch where you’re going when you’re on your phone. When your eyes are glued to your phone screen you can’t look where you’re going and might run into something or someone, as shown in the video, and get hurt. I think my PSA showed that message well.
Well that’s it for this blog on how we thought our PSA turned out. I think I could improve on some things, especially towards the end, and maybe did better. I think most of my shots were good, my audio in the beginning was good, but towards the end they were off, and I think my message was pretty clear to see. One of the lessons I learned from doing this project is to always start early so you can give yourself more time to putin the extra corrections, to go from good to great. See you in the next blog. Bye!
Hi! Welcome back to my site for another blog! For this week’s blog we have to talk about how we think the morning announcements have been going for us and some ways we can make the announcements better for our audience. I feel like the transition to making the scripts and going on air has been harder than I had expected because I thought I could just whip up a script in like a week, but it was harder than that. I had to get all my information put it in the script, make sure the information was correct, and then had to kind of almost stalk the new announcements folder and make sure I got all the new announcements put in. Some of the things that we can do to make the announcements better for the audience is have a new intro, having the announcers be more relaxed up there, and keep showing some of the videos the class creates.
I think one way we can make the announcements better for the audience is with a new intro. We’ve been using the same intro for about half of the school year, and it gets boring over some time. I like the idea of having intros for like the holidays like how someone suggested a Valentine’s Day themed intro for February. This idea to me sounds really cool to have and play in the future.
Another way I think we can make it better and more understandable for the audience is by having the announcers relax more. You know those times you talk really fast when you’re nervous to present or something, so you can get it over with quickly? I can totally relate to that because I’ve done that many, many times. Sometimes you talk way too fast though, and people can’t understand some of the announcements you are trying to say. If we talk slower and at a normal pace, that problem should be taken care of.
A third way that makes the announcements better for the audience are the videos we show already. I just love it that we are showcasing some of our work for the school to see. For example, when we show the teacher profiles, the students can learn a lot about the teachers they love and hate sometimes. Then some of these students see our work, and they may be tempted to join media.
Well, that’s it for this week’s required blog. Preparing for, and actually announcing was harder than expected for me, but this was only the first time, so next time I’ll make sure I’m prepared. Some of the things that we can do to make the announcements better for the audience is have a new intro, having the announcers be more relaxed up there, and keep showing some of the videos the class creates. Have a wonderful day, and I’ll see you in the next blog. Bye!
