The place that I want to do my film about is the Great Ocean Road. The construction was started in 1919. It was built by 3000 returned soldiers and was finished in 1939. At times the soldiers lowered themselves down on ropes and dug footholds. Then they carried on making the footholds bigger until others were able to hop down and help. They couldn’t use TNT because they didn’t have a license. Alderman Howard Hitchcock was the mayor of the town at the time and he was the one who brought the plans to life. He managed to get 81,000 pounds from private subsriptions to help the construction. He is sometimes known as the father of the road.
I want to make a movie about the workers conditions and how hard it was for them to build the road without any machinery or a TNT license. Like the how scared they must have been hanging on a rope with a 10-20 metre drop below them.
I think this story is worth sharing because I don’t think the workers get enough credit after fighting a war and then building one of the biggest tourist attraction in the Melbourne district.
I plan to green screen re-enact the part when they lower themselves on the ropes. I think it will get the audiences attention.
My passion Project is going to be about my travels around Europe. I am definitely going to involve Germany, Italy and France. I am going to use Adobe premier and maybe Adobe Photoshop. My film is going to be targeted at pretty much everybody. I’m looking forward to remembering every part of my holiday again.
Win at the fair is a game that you would find at the fair. You roll the dice and what number you get determines where you go.
That board make you lose money. We were given the task of making a board that made money if we were charging a dollar a game. My first board wasn’t that enticing because I had a zero so I changed it drastically. This is my board that I changed it to.
I swapped the 50c and 20c because the place where the 20c is, is more often landed on.
This is the proof that it made money.
I got it right on my first try though I though I could do better. I made it better by switching the directions. This actually helped when I thought it would stay the same. I think it is enticing because there is no o dollars. Though there is 20c and 50c it still seems like you’re still winning something.
When I read I like to get into the most comfortable position possible. I read anywhere, anytime I can. I like silence to read though sometimes I read in blaring music. When I read I go completely silent unless there is a funny part of the book. The most recent book I read is Carnage. I knew it was right because it hooked me in and I wanted to keep reading. When there is a book I don’t want to read I lose my focus. My favourite book is probably Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. This is because it is action packed and about a world of monster and magic.
Birke Baehr’s message in his TED talk was that the food system is wrong and that we should try and change it. He used his hand gestures well though a bit too much. He moved around the stage at the right time well. He got the message across by backing himself with facts and engaging the audience by saying “Hi my name is Birke Baehr.” It is human nature to listen if someone introduces themselves. To improve, Burke should have not used as much hand gestures.
People would find this picture funny at first because the guy says he will go to bed though and he does that though he just plays his phone in bed.
A message in this is that people are to addicted to social media and there phones. Another one is that people aren’t getting enough sleep because of social media.
This is important because nobody can concentrate properly and people think that if they stay up late they can become more popular.
When you properly analyse this cartoon it I think it doesn’t seem as funny.
Richard Turere TED talk is about how his invention made peace with lions. Another message is to never give up.
The main way he got the message across is his words and pictures. He hooked us in with a very confronting picture. Richard didn’t use the space that well though his tone of voice matched what he said quite well.
Thomas’s TED talk was about how anyone can go and create an app and how he loves doing that. He got that that across to us by telling us and making us laugh. He also used a small slide show to get our attention. He also owned the space really well.
Netiquette(net-i-ket) is having etiquette online if you don’t have netiquette and you post mean comments you can lead to an argument.
Flaming is when you post a mean comment
Trolls are people who surf the internet to flame people
Being anonymous is when you never give people your personal information
Clearly Communicating is by not using secret codes to people who don’t know the code, not writing in caps and saying everything.
Permission is not posting something until you have it.
In this class we were introduced to the THINK acronym. It is a acronym you should pay attention to before posting anything.
I believe that every interaction online must be:
- True because everybody hates reading false information
- Helpful because everybody will have better thoughts about you
- Inspiring because other people will copy you so you can get new ideas
- Necessary because otherwise there is no point posting it
- Kind because you will get a lot of mean comments from people you offended
