Birke Baehr TED talk

Birke Baehr talked about how he wanted to make a difrence with the things we eat and by. Birkes TED talk had a few mssages like how some of us just by things, but really know what is on them and what they have just been through. Another is to always know where your food came from witch is probly the same as the other one above. Also how the animals are stuck in cages only to then be eaten and how its not how you would think the animals where spending there time in cages. Also that were changing this problem one child at a time.

I found how he said “would you ether give your money to a farmer or a hospital” witch I found quite powerful. Also how he wanted to change what he wanted to be to a organic farmer to help the world. How the un organic farmers lied to kids that there’s was the  was the best.

Richared Turere

In RIchareds TED talk he showed us and talked about how his community had trouble keeping the lions away from there cows. one of His messages that he got across was that even though you may not succeed you keep trying. which meant to me that just because it may not have gone your way at first you have to work hard for it.

He got his message across to his audience by sharing some jokes with them to make them more engaged and more focessed. He also had pauses to let them guess in there heads what he would do to fix this problem.

He used a microphone for his voice to be louder and he also used a screen at the back of the hall (so he could see if the slide had come) and one behind him so he show how series and passent he was about it.

He used a clicker to match his slides with what he was saying.

Think online

When online you have to think before you put a bad comment or something you don’t want to be seen BY THE WORLD.

True is when you don’t lie about a person online. It can also mean that the people that see the comment and can think of them as a bad person.

Inspiring

Thomas Suarez TED talk

Thomas Suarez’s TED talk was very clear that he wanted to engage more people in making apps because he found it fun. He spoke in a clear voice and changed his tone to keep us engaged. He barely looked at his script and kept his eye contact on his audience.  He also asked questions and made people laugh. By having a screen behind him he was not just able to tell you his story but show pictures to support his message. Since he was in a big hall he used a microphone to project his voice and used pauses and hand movements to keep people interested. He also used simple direct sentences to help prove his points and summarised at the end.

Overall he showed everyone that he was passionate about the topic and it’s quite clear to say all of us got his message!

My passion project

For my passion project I intend to build a guinea pig cage. I was inspired to do this because I love and own Guinea pigs and their other cage is in need of repair and rather boring. I want to show people that making Guinea pig cages can be really fun and easy if you follow the right steps. The style I am thinking of doing is a ‘lawnmower’ so you can move it to different patches of grass. I am looking forward to the design part as I’m thinking of creating something cosy and stylish and have lots of ideas.  I am also looking forward to the building process because it will be fun to create something useful with my own hands.

Adobe premiere pro

 

Adobe premiere pro is a computer software program we are learning to use.

Editing is like killing your video and then bringing it back to life.  If you get stuck there are help tutorials.

Here are some of the names where the video will be made:

Preview

Library

Effects panel

 

If you want to transfer a video or a music track you have saved from your files you hold ALT and press TAB together and it can switch into your files or you can drag it into your time line.

Once you’ve started you video, don’t move it until you finish the film because Adobe Premiere pro won’t know where it’s gone and you will have to go through a process to show it where it is.

When editing your video you can add in an audio track and if it’s not loud enough you can alter the volume.

when you watch this video please put sound track on because for some reason it did not work ( in my test film I cut off the 1234 ant the start )

Shot gun mics

Shotgun Microphones:

Quantity audio can either make or break your film.

Built in microphones are not very good so using a shotgun microphone will improve your sound.

Shot gun mics pickup all the sound behind you so try to avoid tiles and walls ’cause they can rebound the sound.

Always use headphones.

If you’re using HFD take off the cap, slot it in and turn it clockwise and then get a teacher to check it.

Our task was to record just with the inbuilt cam; poor audio and with the shotgun mic plugged in but turned off and then record with shotgun mic turned on and plugged in; this resulted in the best sound.

wirles microphones

 

In Mr Henderson’s clinic we learnt how to use wireless microphones and film with them.

The video above shows how the transmitter talks to the receiver telling it that the lapel or microphone are working so you can start your film.

The lapel can go on a tie, collar or attached to your clothing somewhere close to your mouth so that the audio is clearly heard even with background noise.

The standard microphone can also be used in the same way as the lapel mic as long is it placed under your chin.  You can see that the lapel mic and the standard microphone are working as it should be heard in the headphones or see it on the camera.

I learnt a lot from this clinic and it will come in handy throughout the year with film making.

For the 7th clinic we learnt how to get the right song to match the mood of our films with music and sound tracks. I you want to get a message across that is sad you mite put slow and soft music on , but if you need to get a happy or fun message across then maybe put up beat music. The task we where given was to go on to Bensound and to pick songs that we thought souted these movies…..
