On the second week back we got set up with a project to do with the sos10 (save our species). They are the 10 animals that are becoming extinct. We got emailed a website that the Melbourne zoo put up online and got to know a bit about each animal, we then had the choose and animal we wanted to lend our voices to. I chose the Asian Elephant, I chose it because I didn’t know much about it but when I heard what was happening to them I had to chose them.
We then began writing our scripts we researched facts, watched videos and helped each other out to come up with scripts that really let people know what is happening to our animals.
A week later we went to the Melbourne zoo. We were put into groups and sent off to our animals. We took lots of photo and videos of them. We went to watch the elephants be fed and we learnt some more facts about them.
After we got enough film we went around to all the other sos10. Everyone in my group wrote there name down on a piece of paper, so when they zoo get to 80000 people they are going to take it into the government and try to get them to plant palm oil in clear land instead of cutting down the animals habitat.
Evie and I shared our film and dumped it onto our laptops, we then got the gold footage and deleted the rest. I started by recording my voiceover, then adding in my PTC and the then adding in the footage. Once we thought we had finished we put our films into the kdrive, the watched each others and gave one and other feedback. Everyone got feedback from 5 people. Most of mine was to add in music so I did, now that I watch it though I think I should of turned the music down a bit. We had a lesson to work on our feedback and then give in our final draft. We then watched them and gave each other complements.
