Recently in RVE we have been researching about different country’s & cultures I have been researching about Greece.
The difference between Australia and Greek cultures are massive. We eat lots of different food to them. One of there favourite and most popular foods are souvlakis and charcoal grilled and roasted meats. There staple foods are also very different: olives/olive oil, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, lemons, nuts and honey.
Fashion is also something that are quite different, well hundreds or thousands of years ago at least! The traditional dresses that the women wore were completely different. The only times you will see the dresses is when they light the Olympic torch. The women dress up for that every 4 years.
If I lived in Greece I would eat gelato a lot, apparently they sell it over there every were. Shopping would be so fun, the traditional robes and dresses not so much, but the current fashions. Food over there as I talked about earlier would be so nice, considering how much I love olives and tomatoes and souvlakis!
I really enjoys making this film, but some of the shots you could only see the front of my skis and snow so that was annoying. but luckily that we got a few shots from behind me while skiing and shots of me coming down the slop. the other hard part was choosing the shots because I had so many! the film turned out pretty well but honestly I thought it would turn out a little better, because it is kind of clunky and the scenes did not work well.
I tried my best and it still looks good. when looking through the music on ben sound it was hard to find some that worked with the film.
For my P.P I am doing a video about my 1 week holiday next week and hopefully that is enough to make a good film. The video that I am going to make will be short and probably be quite short. (2 min) I think that it will have lots of shots with just me skiing but I do not have very much time to plan it,( shotlist, shots, PTC, etc.) so when I get there I will probably just improvise every thing so I am just hoping that it will turn out ok. the only other problem is that I have not been skiing in ages and most of my shots will probably be me falling over.
For my OTTT I am doing split point light house and I am really exited about researching about it and working with my group.
the lighthouse is in Aireys inlet and was built in 1891 and was set to automatic rotation in 1919. so in between then there were light house keepers who ran it every night. the light flashed in groups and flashed 4 times every 20 seconds.
the original name for it was eagles nest point. I am not sure why they called it that or why it was changed to split point. I have seen the light house but ages ago over the summer holidays and I am exited to have a tour of the light house soon. here are some random facts about the lighthouse: hight:34m opened:1891 construction: concrete.
the story about the lighthouse:
At 8.00pm there was a boat and a sailor and the light on the light house was red but At 9.45pm he reported to his captain that the light had changed to white. But not for long! The captains boat was being pushed around by the current. the night was mostly calm but as soon an the rain had fallen on them the sea started to go crazy after a southwest strong wind as well. the crew through there anchors down but it didn’t do much.
However they were wedged between the two shelves of rock that form Ingoldsby Reef at Anglesea. they sails were put up and set but lots of the crew went to the lifeboat. Maybe the Split Point Light was mistaken for Pt Lonsdale, and the little boat was expecting to beach at Pt Lonsdale or even Queenscliff. some of the crew remained on the boat and the others went to the lifeboat. both boats headed east to the rough seas and crazy wind. they did not know it, they were approaching Barwon Heads. Later the lifeboat was also.
I started filming late so I have not yet finished editing on premiere. I have added all the footage in and it was around 15-20 mins so I sped up some things then it was 10 min then I cut out some more footage and it ended up being around 8 or 9 mins and I don’t think I could cut out anymore. I am happy with how mine turned out and especially the cake it was amazing!!I was glad the editing that I have done so far has only taken around 10 mins so I am happy with that!
Originally for my passion project I was doing stop motion with some toys and that is what my planning post was about, I decided to change my mind because I was not enjoying it and I could not think of a story line. I decided to do cooking because I love cooking more. I did my cooking on the weekend but I decided to change on Thursday night, so I had to think of what cake to do. I had seen lots of pictures of this cake online and I thought it was really cute so then my mum and I went shopping for all the ingredients like the fondant, icing, tins, gold spay and edible glitter and the cake mix of obviously. cooking it was a lot harder and messier than expected. we filmed most of it but at some parts my mum forgot to press record or pressed it to late! so I am missing some footage but hopefully I can work around that.
We watched a film about being online and being safe and what not to do online and what to do if something bad happens online. it was about four characters and three of them were real story’s and one of them were made up.
I am doing mine about a girl called Lucy who she had the same password for everything and when the bullies stole her phone they could get into everything like emails and online websites. she was also confused about wether it was bulling or not because the other girls were not actually hurting her.in the end everything turned out ok because she told her dad who called the police. she got her phone back and she had a different password for everything and she did not keep it on her phone she just remembered it and never told anyone.
In the last few maths sessions we were playing win at the fair. we all did a test were we all played the game and we did a tally at the end about the game and we found out about that the game board is not working. So then we went off and designed our own game board. Some of us decided that we would be mean and make a no prize spot. We also changed the moves of the rolls. this was my last copy. I originally had a 0.00 prize spot but then I changed it to 0.30 because I think some people will not play it. I did a few tests of 1000 people playing it and I got around 300 dollars witch was what our target was.
I find this funny because this I can relate to this a lot. I am on my phone a lot in spare time. I also think that the cartoon style is funny with the big eyes and small mouth. I think the message is that you need to switch of your iPhone more or iPad sometimes and do other things instead and you need to be aware of how much you are on your devices. After looking at this cartoon more I still think it is funny but only because it is that relatable but Its message is stronger.
I know I said I liked Richards TED talk the most but I also really like Birke Baehr’s! the message is crystal clear and powerful witch is what you need for a great TED talk. the message is that you need to be aware about what you are eating and were it is from. you also need to know how much chemicals are in things to make them last longer and food like that can make you sick. if you want to help the community you should bye it from farmers, even if it might cost moreit is better for you.
he makes him message clear and to make it more interesting. he used the power point and the clicker to make it more clear and that. I also think that he moved around the stage enough but maybe he moved his hands enough. he had a lot of picture to keep it interesting.
there was one picture witch was quite sad and it was the one with the cows and chickens but like in Richards it makes the TED talk stronger and makes it a little bit more emotion.
