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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My passion project is going to be about the end of year concert for dance. I will be talking about the commitment and drama that goes on during concert season.
I love concert time because we get to perform on the GPAC stage and show our parents what we have done all year. the audience that I want to target this video to well is to all ages I really just want it to be entertaining. the message that I want to send to my audience is the life of a dancer. I’m looking forward to testing out all the makeup that I put on for a concert for the before and after shots I will be doing. I hope this video will be entertaining for the class so I want to pick out the behind the footage from last year concert.
I think I’m going to enjoy this task because I get to talk about my favourite time of year.
