Hi! For this week’s blog, we have to talk about how what we learned in media has affected other places in our lives. Some of the things I’ve learned is that you get out what you put in, procrastination is a deadly killer, and you can’t win them all. Now let’s get right into this blog. So my first lesson I thought of is that you get out what you put in. If you put in minimal effort to get something done, it's obviously not going to turn out very well. The opposite goes for if you actually put lots of time and hard work into making a video. You have to work hard through the whole process because if you only work well in the pre-production and filming, but don't try in the editing, it can still turn out bad. You have to work hard the whole way through.
My second lesson is that procrastination is a deadly killer. Everybody procrastinates. Even if we know we're procrastinating, we still do it anyways. I know that for a fact because I've done that countless times everywhere. But I still do it anyway. If you have the chance to procrastinate, don’t. You'll just be sabotaging yourself.
My third lesson is that you can't win them all. If you try really hard on a video, there can still be a small chance it doesn't do well. Like STN. You practice countless times, putting in lots of time to hone your skills, but during competition, that's where you put everything on the line. You can't always get a story. You can't always have a great story to work with, but you have to work with what you have. Even if you put in 100% and try your dang hardest, you can't always have an award winning video. Even though it may suck, that's just how life is.
Well that was my blog about the lessons I’ve learned in media that affect other places of my life. My lessons were that you get out what you put in, procrastination is a deadly killer, and you can’t win them all. Well I'll see you in the next blog. Toodle oo!
Hi! Welcome back to my site for another blog. This week's blog topic is about what we chose for our family night video and why. I as thinking of showing our 3rd STN practice video. Some reasons why I was thinking of showing this was because it was our best practice, it was a pretty good story, and we learned a lot from making that video. Now let's get into the blog.
My first reason was because it was our best STN practice. Our first two STN practices were alright, but we could've improved a lot on each of them. Inour third practice though, we put many of those improvements into that video. Then when it came time to review the videos we could definitely see it was our best work so far. Those first two practices reallly taught us a lot.
My second reason was because it was a pretty good story. I feel like it was a pretty good at package. The interview was really good, we improved on our B-Roll, and it was overall a good video. The person we interviewed also had an interesting story tying into our idea of making each day count. He had a heart condition so he had to make each day count.
My third reason was because we learned a lot from making that story. Even though it was our best STN practice that year, we still could've improved on it. I think we could've played around with the audio a little more and fix it. We also could've spaced out our ideas to make it not seem like the y were part of the same idea. There were other things as well that could be easily fixed.
Well thats why I chose to use our 3rd STN practice in family night. I chose it because it was our best STN practice, it was a pretty good story, and we learned a lot from that practice. I hope to see you in the next blog. Bye!
Hi! Welcome back to my site for another blog. This week’s blog topic is about a STN reflection. There were a lot of highlights, but my favorite parts were when it was snowing, when we competed, and the hockey game. Well then let’s get right into this blog!
Well the first highlight I’m going to be writing about is when it snowed. When we woke up, it didn’t really look like it snowed, but that was only because all of the snow on the street was melted or wiped away. When we went downstairs to get breakfast though, we could see it was snowing and there were piles of it on the cars. Once we were done with breakfast all of us went outside and had a ton of fun in the snow. After that was finished though, we went back inside and relaxed for a while, but it was so fun we went back outside again and me and Evan slid down the hill, but a little more slides later he ripped his pants and that was the end of that.
The second highlight was when we competed in the competition. In competition, we had 30 minutes extra because we picked up our packet early, so we made questions and all that stuff during that time. I didn't even know we could start asking people for interviews in that time, so we lost a pretty good amount of time looking for interviews. Since we didn't know we could ask in that 30 minutes before other people got to interviews first. One other thing I learned is to ask tons of people for interviews and ask of you can take B-Roll of them. Asking follow up questions are also very good to sort of steer them into saying what you want them to say.
My last highlight was the hockey game. The hockey game was just really fun. The atmosphere in the stadium was just really cool and I loved it because it was like the perfect temperature. The game was really exciting as well with the fighting and the people crashing together into the walls. My favorite thing though about the game were the chants. The chants we're just the icing on the cake after the Predators scored a goal.
In conclusion, I had three highlights of the trip. The first was the snow. The second was the competition and the third was the hockey game. Well that's it for this blog, I'll see you in the next one. Bye!
