Term 2 has been a eventful term with many things happening such as passion projects,ted talks,mixcraft,and filled with too many blogs again.A few of my highlights were ted,passion project and mixcraft.Here i will talk about them in more detail.Before i talk about these i will do my three goals these i will try to do throughout next term.
1.to not talk while the teacher is.
2.don’t make uneccarsary comments.
3.use my time better.
At the start of the term we were all put to the task of making a passion project.A passion project is a project of any type like a film presantaion or making something about a passion i had many ideas to start,soccer,skiing,motorbike riding.I ended up going with skiing because i thought skiing would be really cool and i thought a few people in my class would soccer I guess they had the same thought because only one person did it but anyway.After we found a passion we were devoted to we started our planning.This included a schedule and a shotlist for because i was doing a film i chose a film because i thought it would the most effective and was the easiest and best way for my topic.We start by filling in the schdule which ended up looking like this i didn’t really know what to do on the schdule so i looked on other people’s blog to see what they did and put my twist on it.
after this i went straight into editing because i already had the footage from my holiday i found it hard to start bu then i remebered this clip of footage and it’s the perfect way to start after this i was on a roll then i came to a dilema my original music doesn’t work with the footage so i eventually found a song called invicable.Somethings i would change it to be longer because it’s too short i think my next passion project wil be motorbike riding.I enjoyed doing passion projects and i can’t wait to do my next one.
this term during music we have been using a program called mixcraft it is a program to make music during music we have learn’t many things like loops,tracks,picth adjustment.I found this very enjoyable because i really like music and i play an instrument. we made 4 tasks. each task had a individle topic such as our first one was a disco piece involving only certain things like it can only be from a certain genre like rock or pop.here is one of my tasks
this was about a celtic music theme and had an A a B an other A section. during amaze_us i decided to do a tutorial on mixcraft this made me kinder a expert before year 6 i had fiddled around with but i hadn’t made anything really good mr hunt said next were putting us singing to our music and by singing i mean rap which sounds fun.If i could go back in time and change something i would spend more time and try and use some of the complex setting overall it was a really fun way of doing music i learn’t to keep trying and find your own way out of a problem Because alot of people didn’t know how to do what i needed.My next thing is to use songs from NCS or non copyright sound so i can make better music aswell as using the mixcraft beats.i will probally continue doing mixcraft and it might be a hobby of mine even after year 6.
TED talks this is what we did during our half way mark of term 2 we started by wacthing other people’s ted talks from year6 2016 and also the actuel ted talks at a conference we looked at what visuels they were using and there movements across stage and things like that after this we got our ideas my first idea was poverty then safty then i finally got my topic which is disabled people should get same oppurtunites at home i started to think up ideas of what i could do in the script.Then we got told to start our script i started with a pretty average script after having many conferences and checks on grammer editors i ended with a pretty good script here it is darcys ted script-1j2cahq
after doing many conferences our script were looking good now all we had to do was record them so i started and only got through 1/3 and it didn’t sound good so what i did was i did it all over again which was annoying after this i gathered all my pictures then it was a matter of putting it together we focused on putting the pictures and the words perfectly timed together after this my ted talk was looking really good after this we did like a art gallery of ted talks i looked at maxs ted’s and jame’s they all had one thing in commen a clear message it was cool to see how other people to the ted expereince they had the same base as me but then put there own twist if i could rewind time i would spend more time on the recordings and the pictures and timing.Ted talk was really fun but i found i was a bit rushed during the process so maybe put across the term because i felt like i didn’t have enough time and felt like i had to rush my work.I will definitly be doing the live presantaion to add something extra to ted.
this term has been filled with exitment and filled with new things and still too many blogs next term will hopefully as good as this term but i still want to make the holidays go as long as possible next term i want to forfil my goals and start my semester 2 great.
