passion project blog

My term 2 passion project will be a go kart.

I want to do a go kart because It involves cutting wood and using nails to put it together. I have used wood to make things before so I will know what i need to do with it. My favourite part about this is the planning.

The go kart will not have an engine it will move when going down a hill. I will need wood, Screws/nails, wheels, axles, seat and rope.

We will go to the stores to get these material and i cant wait!

(PS it would not let me put in photos but i will when i can)

Green screen clinic

In Mr Henderson’s last clinic we did green screens. We learnt about all the equipment used in the green screen studio and lots of tips for when using it. We got time to test out adobe premier with videos of people in a green screen studio.

This was for when we need to insert videos of us in the green screen. Here’s what I made.

Here are some of the tips and rules.

The Green screen room is 20 minutes max, per group.

In Mr Henderson’s class we did Wireless mics.

Wireless mics are mics that don’t connect to the camera.

they connect to the transmitter which wirelessly connects to the receiver which connects to the camera so you can walk to the other side of the room and the camera will pick up your voice.

Here are rules with wireless mics/tips and infomation.

Wiresless mics are good for the wind

Never tap on the mic

shotgun mics

In miss williamsons class we did shotgun mics

Shotgun mics get their name from their long mic shaped like a shotgun.

Here are some facts.

Shotgun mics are directional

Mics built in to the camera are not for high quality videos.


Always use headphones.

The switch at the back needs to be in the middle (the light needs to be green)

I has fun with Shotgun mics. Espacially when we tested them out.
