For my next project I’m going to be doing a short film about… skiing!!!

I will be using a go pro to collect frottage while skiing. I will then transfer the footage to my phone to make a vlog.

I would like my vlog to go to an age group around 10 to 13 because younger children I don’t think will enjoy a vlog more than what a person around my age would, parents and adults I don’t think would choose to watch a vlog because it does not really fit into something they would WANT to watch.

I really want to just entertain people with the humour in my family that know one really sees. skiing is a big part of my family so when we go up the falls creak we try to make the best of the trip and have a great time.

scenes will included, the drive up, skiing and the family!

this is a topic that I love to talk about so I hope that you will all enjoy it.






this week has been a bit hectic.

I have finished my power point with pictures and all. the short film is also done. I have made a voice over to go on top of it as well. I did it at home so it was a challenge to keep the house quite for 10 minutes,  but I’m happy that its all in time with each other:) I made sure it was all in time by watching the film as I recorded and I am pretty sure that lots of other people would have done  If they needed a voice over. well I think I  could say I’m done my passion project, because I did not do a actual film so I did not really have the same amount of work to be done as everyone else.  next time I do one I will be doing a film and most likely a instructional film but I just don’t know what about yet.  I regret not doing a movie because I could have done a lot more to show the message I was trying to get through, but I’m happy with what I have.

Win At The Fair

a couple of weeks ago 6C started a new project.

I missed the first lesson where the class tallied up that the original game was costing our school ALOT of money.

so  changed it to make the school money. Here is what I changed.  I went through a lot of testing to get to this solution. in the second session I just played around with the directions. I started playing with patterns to see if they would get me anywhere and they did.:) 🙂 🙂

here are all the results that I got In the end.

so as you can see

94 people got 0.20

343 people got 0.15

234 people got 0.50

104 people got 1.00

106 people got 1.50

68 people got 2.00

and 51 people got 2.50.

so that all turned out pretty well. I chose those prises because you would still want to have ago if there was a chance you could get 2.50 so that would encourage people to play.

I made two hundred and eighty two dollars.

this was a fun project and I hope that we can do more like it.


This week I will talking about what I have done with production.

So the make up footage I filmed with Sophie a month ago now that I look at it  I think I should re shoot it but I don’t think I have time to do so.

my power  point, I just need to add some cool effects and add some pictures.

next week I’ll be putting my make up footage into premiere and making it a lot faster so we are not all watching me do make up for half an hour.

I have decided to re shoot the make up time lapse hopefully dad won’t brake the camera.

so I have done the filming and fortunately dad did not brake the camera 🙂

the filming went well except for a few times dad messed up with the camera but when I s it up a lot hopefully you won’t be able see it.:)

all I have to do now I edit the time lapse and speed it up ALOT!


myself as a reader

When I read I need quiet otherwise I get distracted. I normally read in bed because I don’t have any distractions. If I’m reading a book I’m interested in, when you look at me I look like I have just seen something so amazing, I’m staring at it. I just finished a book called Grade Six Style Queen and it was a verse novel. I like short stories because I don’t normally have time to read, but every night I try to get mum to read to my sister and I. I like it when my mum reads to me because it makes me more interested because someone I love is reading it. I know that it sounds like a little kid thing but you’re never to old to have your mum or dad read to you.

Birke Baehr’s TED talk

Today we were told to analyse another TED talk. This is my favourite one.

Birke’s main message was about how we should think about what we by and what we eat. I really like his main message because this is what my mum is all about. My family and I only eat food that is made in Australia or from an organic farm.

He used the screen behind him to put up pictures that were related to what he was saying to deliver his message even more than he was already.

Again Birke  used pictures for support with his message the pictures that he used were matched with exactly what he was talking about.

Birke spoke clearly even with his south American accent and spoke with the right tones. He also kept looking out in the audience without looking behind him to make sure he had the right picture or what he was supposed to be talking about next.

I enjoyed this TED talk because my family and I are already doing this and it shows that other people care to.

Thomas Suarez TED talk

today we started to talk about ted talks. first the teachers showed us this ted talk that we had to analyse here is mine.

Tomas main message was about his passion for creating apps and teaching others how to do it. he sain that kids get taught math and English but we don’t get taught how to make apps.

the ways the he got the message across is by changing his tone and adding in some humour.

he used his iPad to read off notes and reminded himself of what points he was going to talk about.

Tomas spoke really clearly and again good tones in his voice to deliver his message.

I think that Tomas derived his presentation quite well because he gave his main message clearly and it was a very interesting message that he gave.


Richard Turere TED talk

today we watched another TED talk this time a young boy named Richard Turere. he is from Kanya.

Richard’s main message I think was how he had a problem which was lions were killing his cattle so he was determined to find a solution. I thought that the solution that he came up with after experiment after experiment to find that lions are scared of moving lights and they think that someone’s there.

Richard gave his message I think very well because of all the pictures that he showed of what had happened and the process of the project. He also changed his tone often to what he was saying and what it meant.

He used lots of technical support to transfer his message by again having lots of photos that was related to exactly what he was saying which I thought was clever.

Richard also used a lot of presentation techniques to make what he was saying more interesting. such as changing his tone and adding a bit of humour.

it was sometimes a little hard to understand what Richard was saying because of his accent.

I am now starting to think of ideas for what I could talk about in my TED talk.



so fare I have finished my mind map here is a picture.

it shows everything I’m going to include in my presentation.

I have also just about finished my power point for my presentation. it includes almost everything that is in my mind map.

instead of filming my makeup footage next week I completed it last week with the help of Sophie. so instead next week I’ll be getting photos from my mum and getting the footage if the camera.

I still haven’t started editing the makeup footage so ill start that soon.

the biggest challenge I think I have is filming some of the footage of last years DVD through my laptop without it going blurry.

so ill have to think about that this week and maybe getting a proper camera to film it.


Think Online

I think its important to be TRUE because you don’t want to send out information that is a lye because it could start rumours and it could end up as a much bigger problem as it was when you posted it.

It does not need to be helpful but information is normally used for entertainment or to get HELPFUL information so unless its for entertainment I would suggest the information should be helpful.

I don’t really  think that what your posting  MUST  be inspiring I would say that my posts never inspire someone so I’m posting things that don’t inspire people is doesn’t matter we can still.

I think things that your posting should be necessary because you don’t want to just be sending something that is annoying and a waste of time.

it should be kind because I know I would hate to send something that I know is mean.
