Digi T4 Teaser Post

So, me and Jesse finally met up on sunday, and got some work done! We decided that coding something like a little game would be more of a thing to do if we had until next year, but we don’t. Instead, we started making a quiz on Jesse’s mac, with questions about stuff we have done over the year. It will then be exported to my iPad, and then we will get some people to come up and try it. The swift on mac is a lot easier to use, as it has an actual keyboard to work with, and a live output of the code you have entered. The swift playground for iOS is more of a beginner’s thing to then get into the mac version of swift, or so I thought. Anyway, be ready for the project, and i’ll see you in the next blog post!



Digi-AU Update post T4

Over the time that I have wrote the last blog post and now, I have done a bit of refining my skills before I muck around and create something big, as I think it would be better to do that rather than make a lot of mistakes and have to fix them later in the final version. Anyway, the point is that I’ve been doing my other homework instead of this the last 2 or so weeks, and to a great success. But, apart from that I don’t really know what to say more.

Thats it c ya

Zoo project blog post

This term year 6 at Geelong college have been working on a zoo film where we chose an animal out of ten choices, and researched about them, went to melbourne zoo then made a film on them. For my animal, I chose the Orangutan as a random choice, as I couldn’t decide. Then we went on and made a word doc where we recorded some facts and wrote a script about it to take to the zoo. I didn’t quite finish mine, and my printer was broken so I couldn’t print it out, so I just winged it in the end. Anyway, when we got to the zoo I was put in Mr. Henderson’s group with all the other Orangutan people and we listened to a guide who told us what to do and when to do. So we went off to the orangutans soon after, and there we got a lot of footage. I did my piece to camera there, improvising, and it turned out quite good. We went to a hut like building after that, where a zookeeper showed us a “gold coin turtle”, very rare and very expensive turtle occasionally sold on the black market for hundreds of thousands. After that we took a small tour around the zoo and took some more photos and videos, then went back home. The next day, we did our dumping, culling and converting and then started to make our first draft. A few days later, we had a session to get feedback from our draft and action it. I got a lot of three ticks, and just tweaked a few things and rendered it in the highest quality(1080p). We submitted them onto the K drive when we were done, and then made this post a few days later. So, we got some positive feedback just before we wrote this post, and here is it:

I like how you compared a orangutans to palm oil-Noah:)
I liked the music and you made the audience care for the animal-Henry
You made me really care about the animal and want to save it-reuben
i liked the piece to camera part it was very persuasive and the music really suited the film-olly

I like the footage and the music fits the mood. – Zoe

the music really suited the mood and your voice overs were very clear and had a good message – HARRO

I really liked how you compared orangutans and palm oil. Your script was really well written and you used some really good facts-Callan

I liked the message and how you compared the orangutans to palm oil. The music fitted and was very helpful in your film. -Harry Sadler

You have great information and I love the way you expressed yourself in your voiceover- Camilla

I really liked the piece to camera and how powerful the message was when you were talking, and also he facts were amazing – Barnaby

I liked your music and the P.T.C was great I also liked your voice overs because they were really clear and the footage you used was amazing. – Nick

I like how powerful the start was.-Jacob
love the video choice and the voice over is really clear and it just put s it into perspective how much we over take orangutans and how there were so much more of them and less now. don’t you think – Alex White


A lot right!! So anyway, I got the film here for you in 600×1000, and you can view it! Comment down bellow what you think of it!

That’s it for this blog post, see you in the next one!

Digi-AU research post T4

As you probably know by now, I’m doing a project with Jesse on a program called swift, more about that in the last post. Anyway, I’ve downloaded the app and explored with it a bit. I like the way the UI works, it has suggestions at the bottom of the screen, and if you press an up button in the bottom right, the keyboard comes up. It’s a little thing that is very noticeable once you start writing longer scripts. Anyway, moving on, I haven’t watched any YouTube videos, and I don’t plan too as it has tutorials built in and I like exploring myself. It is a very well coded (see what I did there!?) app, that is very god if you wanted to get into coding on an iPad, and also, it’s free. Also, a thing that I’ve noticed when using this, is it’s quite similar to JavaScript, except more presets (e.g. you have to define Jump() in JavaScript, whereas you don’t on Swift). Anyway, that’s just a little update I’d share with the people reading this post, and I’ll see you in the next blog post!

Digi T4 Proposal

for my digi-Amaze_Us this term, I decided to do another coding one, this time on an apple programing language through my iPad. I will most likely be working with Jesse, who will be using a mac, which still uses the same code, Xcode 8.0. We will just be playing around at the start, but we will make it into a project and do something cool in the end. I will give a bit more info as we go on, but that will be it for this post, c ya in da next 1!

Digi T3 Finale!!

We have finished our T3 digi!!!!! All of us did a good job at it, and I would like to congratulate the class for it. Anyway, I presented my Digi on Wednesday, and it all went well. I think I amazed the class with it, and I was certainly happy with my end result. I did a live presentation of pixelmator, using some of the basic editing tools, like saturation and blur. I showed them my movie, which goes for about 2 1/2 minutes, so I can’t do the 1080p on the blog, I’ll do around 480p. But, overall I did good, and I did it on time!!!

So, there you go. That’s my post, and my movie is below. C ya in the next blog post!


Advertising Promo Film

Over the last few weeks the year 6’s have been working on an advertising film for a real client. We have been doing it for inquiry, and have been out for an excursion to film some stuff recently. 6A went to Torquay and SupaTramp, 6B went to the barwon river and places around there, and 6C went to Eastern Beach. For the day I was partners with Noah, but I filmed a couple people, as well as took photos. After that excursion, we had a lot of footage. Noah and I then shared our footage with the rest of the group, Isaac, Owen, Alice and Bailey G. So, we got their footage as well and then started editing our own versions. Mine wasn’t too good, as my draft 2 was the last one before my project file became corrupt }:(.

So, here  is my film, I hope you enjoy it!!!

P.S I tried to get the best quality possible, and I ended up getting it to 1600×900. So it’s quite good quality 🙂

Here’s my feedback sheet!


Sorry I couldn’t find my shot list, so I couldn’t get it in this blog post. Sorry!

RVE Country #2- Germany

Time again to do another RVE blog post, this time comparing our culture to Germany’s. Here we go!!!

First, Germans LOVE beer. I know my dad does, but I’m pretty sure the average Aussie drinks far less than the average German!!!

Like Australia, the main religion is Christianity. But, in Germany, There are about 12% more people that are non-religious

Unlike Australia, handshakes are used for everything. EVERYTHING. Friends use handshakes to greet eachother each day, and things like that.

Another unusual thing for us is that germans won’t say hello or expect you to say hello to them if you don’t know them

Germans eat a lot of meat, whereas Australia is quite balanced between meat and plant food.

So, there you go. Some differences between German culture and ours.

Digi-AU T3 Teaser!!!

Yo Dawgs (we are in America this week!),

Today I am showing you a snippet of what my Digi for this term will be like! First up, the script. It’s a regular man, living in a nice house, and he decides to go on an adventure. He has been on many before, but this one turns out to be different. Stranded after just a short trip off the coast of his home town, his adventurous desire turns into a nightmare. He must battle creatures, prehistoric and mythical, to survive, but at the same time to explore. The treacherous place that he landed on, he has finally abandoned. No adventure shall be alone again. No one should go off the east of Perdney City. Lucky he was slightly prepared…

Anyway, like I have mentioned before, I am using Pixelmator to edit photos, and Corel to edit.

Last off, here is a few more pictures that will probably be in the final film. Hope you enjoy!!!
