done !!!!

I have finally finished my passion project but im going to miss doing one next year😢😢

Did your product turn out the way you had intended?

yes I am very pleased that I got it done. and it was almost exact on what I wanted for my final product

What do you feel you have done well?

I feel that I have done a lot of things well I worked really hard on my editing because im not the best at editing.

And with my filming I got it all done in 1 day.

What do you think you could have improved on?

I think I could’ve got some better shots so I had more options of what to put in my film. so it made it easier.

What did you learn through this process?

I learnt a lot especially about editing like how to do voice overs really easily and quickly and how to mute videos and turning down the music and awesome stuff like that.

What do you need to do better next time?

Next time I need to get more shots and maybe think of a better idea because it was really hard to make my film fantastic with the topic I had.



today I got some feedback these people were very helpful and reliable.

Steven said: I like the music works with your film. Instead of text, you should have voice-overs instead. But if you want the text, make it slower, it’s going by too fast and I can’t read it. Also, I think you should have one week at a time on one screen. If there is two, it’s harder to read. One more thing, make the text a different colour, sometimes, it blends into the background

Angus: The video was very inspiring. It had good tips.  I thought you could extend the text into voiceovers, because they seemed to be hard to read at times against the background. Make each week separate. The music was very different, and the underwater shots gave the film life. Also, the images helped persuade your message. Could you explain more about the event. When is it?

Ben: I liked the music and I like how it showed you training. the music made it very inspiring and im going to follow your tips because I want to swim the pier to pub as well.

Jack: The music really suited and I liked how you had yourself in the background with you doing one of the steps when the steps were coming over the screen.


What editing techniques did you employ and why?

I used powerful music to get my message across to my audience.

What editing software/app did you use?

I used Corel because I don’t know how to use any other software’s

Did you try something new If so, what?

I filmed underwater for the first time which was really fun.

Did you learn anything new about editing?

no not yet but I wanted to

filming time

yggyugyyjgyukToday I filmed for my passion project on how to prepare for the pier to pub.

What are some of the successes that you have had in producing your project?

Some success that I have had were that I got all my filming done in one night because I had ben and spencer helping me.

What have been some challenges that you have had to overcome during the process?

the first challenge that I had was the Geelong college swimming pool is illegal to film there.

That Im not sure of the quality of my water proof camera.

The pool that I swam in was really cold.

How did you overcome the challenges?

I overcame the challenge of not being allowed to swim in the college pool by swimming in my own but the pool wasn’t as big as the college one.

I overcame the challenge of the freezing cold water by  jumping in and not wasting my time so I could quickly get out and have a warm shower afterwards.



SOS Conservation film

On Monday the tenth of October year 6 went to the zoo and it was awesome. But we went there to make a film about a endanged animal I chose the Philippian crocodile. I Decided to lend my voice to this animal because it is a cool animal and the most endanged croc in the world and it needs our help. I used lots of different websites to get my facts especially the Melbourne zoo website.

When we got to the zoo we split up into groups and went to the location of our animal and got some footage and filmed our Peace to camera but when we went back to the meet up area we realized we had lost the cameras so we lost all of our footage but I got some of the other classes footage to put in my film.


When I started  editing I got heaps of Emmys footage because I didn’t have any and Henry and I filmed our PTC in the green screen studio. once I finished my first draft I got feedback from my piers and I was told to turn down the music from basically everyone so I turned it down so you could here my voice over.

Then I got some positive feedback from my peers here is the positive feedback

i think it was really well put together and the song choice was really good and perfect loudness. just saying the croc looks like a tasty lasagne.-alex.

I think your footage really went well with everything, making everything better. Your music choice was really good for your film.-Mary B.

planWhat have you needed to do to prepare for your project?

I’ve done a lot of planning I’ve finished my Shotlist and thought a lot about how to get my message across to my audience.

What types of shots have you included in your Shotlist?

I’ve usually just used LS because I think they should suite my film well and help get my message across

What is the next step for you?
The next step is filming and im so excited because 60% of my film is already done.

Choice day

Yesterday was choice day I was in Mr wades group called count down  we made a ping pong projectile that shot a ping pong ball a certain distance my machine at the start was like a trampoline it had no chance it couldn’t even shoot the ball so Henie showed me a new design which made the ball fly 4 meters  I was very grateful that Henie showed me a great invention .  the new structure that Henie showed me was a tape roll with icy pole sticks glued together to make it longer and placed it on the tape and used rubber bands and It started going really high so I got some more icy pole sticks and put them under the tape so it shot on a angle and went further it was  very enjoyable and im so excited to do something like it next term


I think there should be something for the sporty kids. Because me and my friends would of rather to kick the footy or something like that. Thanks and I hope you enjoy my blog post about choice day

Promo film Geelong by kids for Kids

On Wednesday 4 weeks ago we filmed a promotional film for Geelong by kids for kids it was very enjoyable.


The locations were leisure link, bike track, Waterfront Supa tramp and Torquay my class went to leisure link and the bike track
In my class my filming buddy was bailey. we got footage also from Mia and Ella and Astrid and jade.

Production – filming on location

my favorite filming location was the bike track. because I brought my bike everyone needed footage of someone doing the jumps and that was me 🙂
Sharing of footage / Culling and Converting footage

Sharing our footage was one of the main parts of putting together our films. if we didn’t have the other classes footage we couldn’t have made our films as good as they are now.


Editing was really fun I learned a lot of new special affects and used them in my film.



Alex enjoyed my music he said it suited the film well but in the first song I had it swore so I quickly changed it

Implemented feedback

When I checked the form I realized I needed some special effects so I put some in I hope you enjoy it.

Insert a copy of your feedback sheet – scan it!

Yes im very proud on how we worked together I didn’t think we would finish it so quickly im very happy with ben and I.


What do you feel you have done well?



I feel we recreated the goals well. Im also surprised we didn’t get distracted.


What do you think you could have improved on?


I think we could improve on filming more goals so we had more choice on what goals to put in our film and to recreate.



What did you learn through this process?



I learnt that ben and I could work well together I was very surprised that we got it done. it was also very fun.


What do you need to do better next time?


I think we needed to have more goals to put in the final video so we had more options of which goals were the best

I really loved this passion project I really enjoyed filming the goals and doing on something I love football
