My passion project has mainly been a success but I have also found many things challenging such as screen recording. I have had many errors such as performing a disappearing act and not saving!!L In addition, I hope to overcome that today. Another challenge was the creative cloud they are always challenging and always push my patience. When you think something is going to work it stuffs up in the middle of your screen recording!! However, it is always just a matter of takes before It works out.
I’m up to finalising my premier product and just putting in the final touches and transitions. In all I have learnt a lot about the adobe learning program and had a lot of fun
So far, with my passion project process I have discovered many new things thanks to my general curiosity and Doctor Tim kitchen who works for the adobe education department of the Asia pacific. He came in on the 29th of august to teach everyone a bit about adobe and how to work its complicated programs. He had 3 sessions to teach us about adobe so he started with my favourite program adobe Photoshop were you could swap heads with your best friend and make your cat form orange to green. He taught me a lot about layers and some other techniques I didn’t know about, but I was pretty up to date with adobe Photoshop. Next was the program that I struggled so much with in term 1 and 2 in #amaze which is adobe character animater. I found out so much and I think everyone did as well. Last but not least it was a program that I hadn’t herd of and it was called adobe spark and this is what I made with this amazing online website that you can get for free.
I am going to include all these application in my passion project and do a bit of both.
#PP update post
editing so far has been a blast. I’m so happy with how my movie has been coming together. I’ve learnt how fun it is to film and create something by yourself, everyone has chipped in, my dad took photos and my mum helped me with my script.

today in RRR we went on a magical journey through the land of the internet, and some of it was true and some of it was false. it brought up some thoughts about real problems and real scares. here is a real story about a boy called Kieran and I will be telling you his story and what I learnt from it.
Kieran got his first console at the age of 7 and he quickly got addicted. he was so addicted that when his friends were over he just played on his console, so he eventually lost his friends. his dad had warned him that he needs help but he didn’t listen. when he turned 15 decided that he needed help so he told his dad and he went into rehab. his life is now back on track and he is doing jobs and helping his dad.
I think Kieran should have listen to his dad then he wouldn’t have got addicted and wouldn’t have gone to rehab. I take away that not just the internet is a dangerous place, gaming is also a dangerous place getting addicted.
over the past few weeks we have been playing, collecting data, making and testing our win at the fair boards. win at the fair is a board game, its were you roll 2 dice and the number your dice equals determines were you move up, left, right etc. it cost $1 dollar to play but you could win some awesome prizes like $5,$4 and a lot more. we played this version of the game, a lot, for fun and to get more information because, we had to put that information into a tally. so we could see if we had made money or lost money and we figured out that we had lost money so Mr Henderson assigned us the task of making a successful but enticing board game that will win us money. or goal was to make 300 – 400 dollars.
I made a board and it wasn’t perfect the first time so I had to do some tweaking to it. I worked out that you want to change the dice movements so that you have more moves going up and less going to the sides because all my prize money was on the sides like most peoples.
this was my final copy and it performed well I think its enticing because it has high prizes and costs very little, peoples eyes get drawn to dollar signs and big numbers so I put a big number and lots of dollar signs and I still made $351.40. I had a good time during this process and I hope we can do something similar.=)
my weekend of production was very productive. i filmed lots of takes but I only used 4. I had some wonderful shots and scenery. my parents helped a lot in my production by taking photos, filming me and giving me ideas. I will credit them for their help and support in the final film.
one of the struggles during the process was the production day. every thing up to the production day was perfect my script was done and I had taken lots of photos it was perfect until the production/filming day. on the production day I was tired and hungry for the whole day and it didn’t help with mum constantly changing my script and saying to look alive. but I eventually got over these symptoms and did my passion project with the help of my dad and eve and Charlie fighting in the background. =(
here is some photos of my successful day?
birke beahr did a great ted talk. his was special because he didn’t just MAKE something he researched and studied about his chosen topic. and that was healthy food.
birke baehr had a very strait message it was that the food system was CORUPPED. he talked thurrerly about his topic using hand gestures and some jokes. he didn’t need much technical support because he had learnt his script off by heart. he had so much evidence to back him up and that made his speech great.he got his message across with his tiny winy bit of technical support and his amazing speech he wrote.
today in inquiry we learnt about ted talks. TED stands for [ T technology, E entertainment, D design]
we watched a clip of this kid, Thomas Suarez doing a ted talk and we talked about the values of his ted talk.
he was just a boy with a nack for creating games and he was concerned that their wasn’t any tutoruials to help people make a game so he did a ted talk and it was amazing his images and the way he spoke to his audience was excilent. I give him 10/10
