This year has truley been amazing in Advanced Media Arts. I have learned so much and overall, Media Arts has been an amazing experience. I felt so lucky to be able to take part in Advanced Media Arts. I think next year that there should be a little more structure. All of the free time was really nice, but at times when I couldn't think of anything to do, having an exact plan would have been nice. I think you shouldn't do the Photo A Day Challenge next year, because most people didn't like that. You should do alot more tutorials on Photoshop, have 2 field trips(winter and spring) and do flash animation. The Portal Project was alot of fun. I never had done something like that before and the overlaying of images was really cool to me. I think that you should do something like that next year, but just not with portals. Maybe with other pictures. I think that you should take a couple of weeks in the beginning of the year to show the kids how to take videos in the auditorium and fully use all of the equiptment. The 6 word project was really fun and all of the things that we did with that. I think that maybe you should do a person of the week. Like show a couple of videos on like every Friday of a certain person who did something cool in the digital art world and then the following week the class could do some work like the certain person. My favorite thing that I did was The Sayings Gone Literal phase that I did in Photoshop. It was really fun. I think that you should also do more group projects
So I know that my last Weebly post a couple of weeks back, that I said that I had finished the movie for the Inside Out Project, but I actually only finished today. I had to go back in the movie and redo most of the editing. The people who filmed the movie zoomed in and zoomed out of each clip a little to much, and Mrs.Kushner said that it didn't look to good. So, I went back in the video and made the parts that looked messy, full screen. Then I just cropped the individual clips, so that there as a little bit of zoom. I also finished making the DVD. I added the Photo Slideshow with the song Human by The Killers and the You Think You Know Me clip that the AF
Today I finished working on the movie. While working on the movie I had to edit the clips from the play. I had to put everything together and choose clips where I thought that zooms were appropriate. After I got all of the zooms ready and the video clips looked nice, I had to align the sound. There were some parts of the video where the sound was louder or quieter than the rest of the video. I had to listen to each clip and try to make sure that the volume sounded the same.
After that, I had to chose the cover for the DVD. I chose the top 3 DVD covers and then printed it out. I then went around the class and asked everyone which was their favorite. Which over design had the most votes, would be the design that I used fro the cover.
I then worked on the credits for the movie. Mrs.Kushner took pictures of the program and I put them in order and made a movie out of them. I added Humans by the Killer to the movie. Then I made the DVD out of it and I finished the project. The making of the movie took about 2 weeks i
Today I started to work on editing the movie. I worked on the full stage clip and started spliting it where close ups could be used.
Day 2: 5/1/13
Today I pretty much did planning for the video. I broke apart the full stage clip, and looked to see where zooming would be good for he movie of the play. Then I went to the zoomed in clip of the play and found the approximate time that each place I wanted a zoom should be. I got that done for all zoom clips.
Day 3: 5/2/13
Today i started to replace the pieces and get the zoomed in pieces into the play
I am working in the movie for the Inside Out Project. I am going to work in iMovie and in Final Cut to piece together the movie.
You think you know me? Come inside my thoughts and I’ll show you the way that I really am. Just because I may seem happy doesn’t mean I am. You are fast to make your judgments and you are fast to unleash your cruel words. But when have you tried to get to know the reasons behind my actions? Don’t trust someone’s appearance, trust their voice, because my words will tell you more than my face ever will.
Today Grace and I worked on typing the quotes again,
Today me and Grace started to look at Final Cut, which is the editing program that we will be using to edit the movie We also figured out how to do a screen recording so when we type some of the quotes for the Inside Out Project, we would be able to record it. We looked through the rest of the pictures and figured out which ones we will be wanting to use in the movie. We also chose which quotes and which parts
