I am extremely excited for my last passion project but also very sad because of how much I have enjoyed creating them!
I intend to create different types of platters, meaning lots of lollies, fruits and snacks all arranged on a board. I found my inspiration from this platter…
By looking at that I cam up with so many more ideas and I kept searching for more of her platters. I found others like these…
I recreated the first picture and I plan to decorate other deserts like cakes and milkshakes but focus on platters. I’m going to times lapse myself making everything and then attempt to take professional photos. I will make dream boards on Pinterest and then print them out and make a collage just like this…
I plan on using my phone to make the times lapse and my sisters Canon camera to take amazing HD photos so you can really see the detail of each one. I will have to learn how to use the camera properly because I have slight knowledge about it. But I already know how to use my phone because it is super simple!
My passion project is targeted at my family and class mates. I have already made a platter for a family gathering and next weekend is one of my best friends birthdays so I will be making a yellow themed platter and a fruit platter. When we have to present our projects to the class I will hopefully be able to share a Christmas themed platter for everyone to have and also a short film of me making all the desserts.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone’s faces when they see what I have made. I’m also looking forward to hopefully learning how to bake because I barely know how to crack an egg! There are many other parts of this project I am looking forward to but one other is making sure this is my best one yet because there wont be another opportunity like this soon.
This is what my board and the times lapse looked like…
I am really looking forward to finishing off this year with a bang!!! And this is the perfect way to do it.
I have really enjoyed doing my passion project this term!
I did complete what I originally set out to do. I finished my Hawaii video but I didn’t think that what I made was how it was going to turn out. It was not as simple as I intended it to be but I like how I edited all the clips together. The way I was going to originally set out the video was like a montage with music in the back but instead it is more of a mixture of montage, voice over and narrative.
The successes I had towards the end of this project were green screening because I could edit the green screen cutaways very easily and quickly. I also could simply export my video without any problems.
Some of the challenges I faced were… none! I faced no troubles towards the end of this project because any of the problems I did have were all at the beginning.
The only way I would extend my learning would be to have better time management because instead of spreading out the editing time (because I already had the footage) I edited in massive patches so I would do a big block at a time.
I am glad that I still learnt more then I envisioned and had so much fun looking back through all the memories and experiences!
This is a sneak peak of my video…
I have really been enjoying doing my passion project this term and looking back on lots of amazing memories.
So far I have achieved so much! I have almost finished editing the video and just have to add in little pieces to make it more entertaining. I have tried to use all ‘Hawaiian’ music so the Beach Boys and Israel Kamakawiwo’ol, to give it a relaxing but exciting feeling. I also have some videos of myself just talking to the camera about my favourite places.
Some learning I have done to up skill myself is learning how to use green screen on imovie because I thought that it would be as complicated as using Adobe Premier but it was much simpler. I also used sound effects and I learnt how much an extra sound can add to make all the sounds better. Another part of my video I learnt was how to use Google Earth Pro to get the intro or beginning of my movie! The last thing I learnt was how much music makes a difference to your movie, video or show.
Some successes I have had is everything I said in the paragraph above worked out perfectly because I had no trouble with my laptop or software! The only challenge I faced was getting some old videos onto my laptop and music onto imovie but that was quickly fixed.
The next step for my passion project is to fix any slight detail make every video or photo change on the beat (if you didn’t notice I’m a bit of a perfectionist). I also will need to save it in HD to get the best quality possible.
So far my passion project has been great and I am so excited to see what happens next! This is part of my video…
For my term 3 passion project I intend to make a film on Hawaii and all my experiences travelling their. I hope to make a entertaining montage, humorous and factual video from the 10 times I have been there.
I used a GoPro the last few years so I have plenty of footage from then. I will use my MacBook Air to edit the video. Since I have already started editing I explored Google Earth Pro to get a video from Geelong to Waikiki.
My passion project is targeted at anyone who likes a little laugh or who loves warm weather or just wants to experience someplace through my eyes.
I am looking forward to watching memories from amazing holidays. I also love editing and I am trying new things with green screen cartoon sort of things!
I’m so excited for this terms passion project and can’t wait to see how it turns out! Here is a video I made using Google Earth Pro…
I have completed my passion project! I originally set out to make a netball video but in the same week I changed my idea to doing a mini photo album of 101 things to do with Sophie! So technically I didn’t achieve was I set out to do but it didn’t effect how I used my time or how my final product ended.
I didn’t face any challenges towards the end of this project but I didn’t come across many in the whole project because it was quite simple and creative. The only problem I had that didn’t effect anything was that I bought chalk paint instead of normal paint so it is easier to scratch. I found some success in just finishing because I put so much time and effort into making something quite simple but I wanted it to reflect sort of my personality.
I didn’t have to really overcome any challenges except for the paint but I just painted a few more coats then I would’ve if it was normal paint. I also wanted to keep the front cover simple but I wasn’t sure how to do that but in the end I put a simple rainbow sticker on it and it looked super cute!
I’m not sure how I would extend my learning if I was to continue this project. I was happy with my final product. If I had to do something I would have included a real flip book but it was to hard to flip the pages because they were so thick.
I enjoyed doing my passion project so so much! It’s by far the best home learning I have ever done!!!
Here are a few pictures in my book…
I am really enjoying creating my passion project. So far I have created the cutest little ‘memory book’, there are currently around about 70-80 pictures in the book and I am hoping to get 101 or 99 memories in there. I have made 8 chapters including: Mini Me, Family, 1st Days of School, Friends, Travel, Sport, Randos & Alfie Bear.
I have learnt that I have way to many amazing experiences and memories to make a little book. That makes me really happy that I can say that (or type it) because it is really cool to think about. The other thing I have learnt so far is if you want to make something amazing you have to put in the effort. I do think I have done that but I know I have definitely tried to do it!
The main challenges I faced were really just how bad my cutting skills are. Since I chose quite a basic project I haven’t had too many difficulties other then having to print outXX and when I ran out of glue but clearly not very important things.
I still need to add the flip book chapter, that is made of videos I have closely screen shot to create a fast moving picture when you flick through the pages. I also need to decorate the front and back cover of my book, I want this to really reflect how much work I have put into it and for it to represent all my memories. The next step for me will be improving boring pages and hopefully creating a ‘MASTERPIECE’. Sorry for such bad quality.
This is from the mini me chapter!
This is from the travel chapter!
My term 2 passion project will be based on a few of my passions! These passions are netball (specifically shooting), trampoline trick shots and and film making. I’m hoping to be making some sort of montage video, taking place in my backyard , Kardinia Park and any other place I can find a netty ring! I am going to be using a GoPro for all my filming and Adobe Premiere for all my editing. I’m hoping I can use my favourite song for the background music (I’ve talked to a few people about using it, still need to talk to a few more). NO SPOILERS! My passion project is targeted for all ages. I just want my audience to have fun while watching my video, that’s why I have picked an upbeat song. I am looking forward to getting to do some of my passions for homework! I think I will love every second of this project and I am looking forward to create something to hopefully #AMAZE my audience!
Here is a sneak peak video…
♥ PART 2
I think you might laugh at this but… I have already changed my mind of what I am going to do for my passion project. I have decided to go for something more creative. I am going to make…
101 MEMORIES OF SOPHIE!
This is a flip book sort of thing with 101 memories of my life. It will have chapters like family, sport and travel. I am really excited because now I get to show almost all of my passions through photos and I get to show more of my creative side. The technologies I am planning on using are a HP sprocket to print all my photos to make the photos all the same size. My targeted audience are all my friends and anyone that wants to get to know me better! I am still really looking forward to every second, minute and hour of this project, I am especially looking forward to go back and look through some amazing memories
(I am still unsure if I am going to do 101 memories of less because I don’t want to go overboard so that it gets boring!)
