Hi! Welcome back to my site for another blog. This week’s blog topic is about what video we are going to show for the family night video and why. I’m going to be showing Carter and my 2nd STN practice. I’m going to be showing this because it really got me into thinking about what it would be like in the real competition, that unexpected things could happen, and we just have to be prepared for anything.
I’m going to be showing our 2nd STN practice because it got me thinking how it would be in the real competition. In this practice we had to find a story about patience. In the first hour, we couldn’t find a story because everybody we asked would reject us because they were either too busy, or didn’t have the authority to let us film. This was very frustrating and really got me into thinking that things didn’t always go as planned. We had to go to our last resort and only had about an hour to film.
This also taught me that unexpected things could happen at anytime. During the time we were recording B-roll, the weather changed. In the first half of the time we were filming, the weather was okay, but it seemed like it was going to rain. Then while we were packing up it started to drizzle, and by the end of packing up it was raining way more than before.
We have to be prepared for anything that might happen such as equipment issues. We have to prepare for things such as packing extra batteries and making sure our equipment works. If we don't, then we are just chancing it and we're not 100% all our gear is ready to go and we have extra precautions.
I decided to show our 2nd STN practice video because in the making of the video, it taught me a lot about the experience we might have in the real competition. It really got me into thinking about what it would be like in the real competition, that anything could happen, and we just have to be prepared for anything. Well that's it for this blog. I'll see you in the next one. Bye!
