Digi-AU proposal

For my Digi this term I am going to play Hallelujah on my cello.

When I was on YouTube and I came across a boy named Séverin Wernli who had written a song for cellos (Hallelujah). He said in the description that if anyone wanted the music we can email him. We emailed him and about a year later (Last week) he emailed me the music. I have been learning it over the holidays. We contacted Noah Gray (From year 8) to ask if he could help me record because he has a recording booth thingy. Once I have recorded it I am going to find some where to film myself playing the song and then match it up with the good quality audio. I was thinking like a church or something. I am hoping to stick to my plan through out the whole term and maybe make a few changes. To challenge myself even more I am going to use a different editing app like premier are something and I am going to try and memorize the music so when I film it in the church or wherever there wont be a music stand in the middle.

Digi-AU Finale

So yesterday, (The 15/09/16) I presented my joint Digi project with Clara. So this term I have changes my idea so much! I started off by doing a music video with Ellie, but that didn’t work, So then I wanted to make a video with all the footage I got from my snow trip, but I didn’t get enough footage, So then I had no idea what to do. When I was watching YouTube I came across a video called back to school DIYs. I clicked on it and it pretty much showed things that you can do with your school supplies to make them prettier. So after watching a few different videos I decided that I wanted to make my own.

Did I really challenge myself? 

I think in this whole project I have really challenged myself. I was challenged when I did the project with Ellie because I had to try to learn how to use adobe premier. It is like the most confusing thing ever! We also made up a dance for parts of the video and she’s a really good dancer and then there’s me……  I also got challenged with the DIY video because with the time that we had it was really rushed!

Did I amaze my audience as much as I could have?

To be honest with you I don’t think I amazed my audience as much as I could because I only had a week or 2. If I had of done the project from the start of the term to the end of the term it would have been a lot better footage because we probably would off had some practice so we new what to do on the day. I also thing think that in my final “Draft” if I had more time it would have been good if I added some music, but it really didn’t make a difference because most of it had sound.

Even though my video didn’t turn out as well as it could of I am still happy with it.

Here it is ⤵ (can you tell me if it works?).

 

Promotion Film

advertising-film-shotlist

This term we started a promotion film, Geelong by kids for kids. First we got an email from a lady called Tracey who works at a place who promote the Geelong and the Bellarine, she asked us if we could all make a film for the, so that they can put it on their website. Of course we wanted to! So we all got to work, to start off we got into small groups and wrote down a list of places where kids like us would love to go in Geelong. Once everyone had written down some places the teachers sat down and narrowed the locations down to 4 different areas.  Then they allocated each class a different area/areas. 6A- Torquay- Supa-Tramp, Skate park, Beach and park 6B- Waurn Ponds- Leisure Link, Balyang Sanctuary, 6C- Geelong- Geelong waterfront, skate park and Carousal. Then we all got into a group of 6 [ 2 people from each class] so that we could use the film from each of our partners class. My partner was Emma, from 6A we had Callan and Barnaby and from 6B we had Emmy and Evie. The next step was to make a “Shot list”. We had to plan what we wanted to film and what type of shot we wanted to use. Eg. T.S (Tracking shot) of bike rider riding down the stairs. Finally the teachers had everything set and we were ready to go, on the Tuesday 6A went to Supa tramp. They were the only class to go somewhere on that day because they wanted to go to Torquay for the whole day. They thought that if they did both on the same day it would be really rushed and they probably wouldn’t get much footage. So Supa tramp let them go Tuesday morning before they opened to the public! Then on Wednesday all the classes set off to their designated places, we all went to each place/Area for around 10-15 minutes depending on what/how big the place is/was. After a great day of filming we went back to school and dumped all our footage onto out computers. The teachers managed to get 12 USB’s, One for each group of 6. This made it really easy for everyone in each group to get there footage together. Then we put all our footage onto corel and started editing. I was getting really frustrated with corel because it is a really laggy program so to watch what I had edited I had to keep on rendering it! When we were happy with our first draft, all the year 6’s went around to everyone’s computer and give people some feedback so that at the end of the session each year six would have at least five comments/feedback. Then we re-edited it taking onboard the feedback that we got. Finally when we finished our final draft, we had another feedback session. When we our sheets with all the feedback back I had seen that people thought that I had defiantly improved from my first draft. Then we gave our film to the teachers so that they can chose a few of the best films to send off to the client. Even if my film doesn’t get chosen, I still think it was a great experience. Here is my completed film.

 

 

 

Snow Video (should work)

Clara and I went to Mt Bulla On Saturday to go skiing we skied all day Sunday and we left on Monday. On the Monday we didn’t ski so we hired a toboggan and made film. It may look a bit funny because I filmed it on my phone. And by the way we made all of this up on the spot. I hop you enjoy it!

While you are watching the video I have a challenge for you. Can you count how many times you can see Clara eating the snow??!!  Tell me in the comments.

Digi-AU Update

WOW time flies! We are already at the half way point of our Digi projects and to be honest with you I am pretty nervous because I am going Skiing for the next 2 weeks so Ellie and I are struggling to find a weekend that we are both free to film. We have changed a little bit since we first started this project. Mr Henderson suggested to Ellie that because she is a dancer she should add in some dancing, So we did that, Then we slightly changed our song, Instead of the original lose it song by Oh Wonder we are using a remix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhK8Ehv6aPI). I am finding Adobe really frustrating because I watched one of the tutorials 500000000000 times and I still don’t get it.

  2. I work at Hogwarts
  3. I have dark hair
  4. I am loyal to Harry
  5.  I am big and tough
  6.  I am caretaker at Hogwarts
  7.  I have a big beard
  8. I rescued Harry from his aunty, uncle, and cousin on his birthday

Who am I?

 


Digi-AU Research

So Ellie and I have almost figured out what we are going to do for Digi-au. When you search up Loose it by Oh Wonder (The song we are using) it comes up with a Remix, We both agreed that we liked that one better because it was slightly more upbeat. So far we have choreographed a bit of the dance and watched a few adobe premier tutorials.  The other day I put a video into adobe premier and played around with it. I found adobe premier a lot harder that corel. I pretty much had no idea what I was doing, I was kind of just pressing random buttons and experimenting.

 

This is parts of the dance so far⤵

Building Views

WIN_20160720_141821WIN_20160719_145204

About 2 weeks ago we started a project named building views. First we where given a sheet of paper with a few different 4×4 grids/boards. Each section in the grid had a number in it from 0-4. At the top of the page there was a bigger empty grid. We had to place down blocks on the empty grid. If the grid that we where using had a 2 written on the top right of the grid that we would place two block on that same spot but on the empty grid, and so on. After we had completed every grid and recorded it we moved onto the second task. On the second page they showed us the front view of what the model would look like and the side view. From there we had to work out how to make the model on the grid. We had to work out the least amount of blocks that we could use to make that model, Then we did the same for the maximum. Then we did the same for every other building.

Digi_Amaze_Us proposal

Capture

For Digi Amaze Us this term I am going to put all the footage that I took on my holiday at Northern Territory and make a video.   I am hoping to put some cool effects on it, Use some music and put in some little facts using a voice over. To challenge myself even more instead of using corel I am going to use Adobe premier.  I am going to watch some tutorial’s on YouTube because I have never used it before. I am very excited about this project because we have all term to do it so I can really challenge myself.

YOU KNOW WHAT, SCRAP THAT.

I looked at all the photos from northern territory and I found out that I actually didn’t take many. So now I am going to just work on my other project with Ellie. We are going to make a music video to song. We haven’t yet agreed on what song we are going to do. Ellie wants to do it to Lose it by Oh Wonder. I want to play What do you mean by Justin Bieber on my cello. Anyway we will decide soon. Because Ellie dose dance she is going to make a dance for different parts of the video.
