Q2: ACO 5.0 - Visual Statement




Our topic in this project was about how depression looks like in the life of a person and the process of getting better. Our message in this video was to show our viewers that there are always people you can talk to or ask for help when you need it. No matter how difficult it may be to ask for help, they will do it. This subject is important to my partners and me because depression is pretty common in the high school setting. We as teens are growing up emotionally and physically, we are getting prepared for the oncoming future. Getting ready for adulthood and be stressful and scary. The goal we wanted to achieve in this project was to really show how depressed people feel and how they can get better. We were required to produce a two to three video on depression in a relevance that connects with our audience. We were allowed to create our own sound effects and produce a soundtrack on Garage Band. We would edit our footage on Final Cut Pro. My partners were Arianna, Carina, and Lily. Arianna was the editor; she compiled all of the footage together. She added effects, jump cuts, and made the whole video run smoothly. Carina was the head camera person, her job was to direct all of the main shots in the video. i was support our project, i give them advice and i helped them with our jobs when we needed it. Lily's job was to make the script. Lily mainly wrote all of what we did and said as a group in the video.
For this project, our team had to learn how to use Final Cut Pro since we were new to the software. With that, we learned many tips and tricks to make our editing segment in this project easier. We learned how to use the different types of playheads and what they are. We learned how to cut and paste our footage, how to make the clips shorter, how to layer clips. Most importantly, we were reminded how to film and make our shots look clean and stable. We used these types of tips when we had extra footage that we didn't need or want. It is important to use FCPX Libraries, Events and Projects properly because it can help with being organized and overall have a faster production. When our audience is watching our video it's important to make sure the audio and the footage line up nicely. It's also important to make sure the audio is always at the same volume. You don't want the audio to be all quiet and then all of a sudden it's blasting your eardrums. To make sure you don't do that, the audio should always be hitting above 12 and below 6. My team and I all agree that the audio sounds more professional. When we recorded our voiceover, we were using a professional microphone. It was meant to be high-quality audio if we produced it correctly. We like our video footage, but not a much as our audio.


Finally, describe your biggest challenges during this project and what you did to help overcome them. Explain your group dynamic... who was the driving force toward attaining the project goal and how did the other person help or hinder that progress? Explain the most enjoyable part of this project and conclude with a reflection of your critique results... explain why you agree or disagree with them. (6 sentence minimum)

I think the greatest challenge for my team was filming. Our video was about the daily life and perspective of a depressed person. We wanted to show time passing so we had our actor wear different clothes in the different scenes. Because of the details we wanted to show in our video, like the change of clothes, the process of our video became long. .... I think the most enjoyable part in this project was seeing the finished product. All of our hard work was put together and we got to see the final piece.

Q2: ACO 1.0 - Modern Art Movement



My partner and I decided to do Photorealism. We chose I chose this because art and photos Is my thing I like but my kept trying to ditch school. He  was always being app-sent almost everyday because he Is trying to skip school. We didn't hand time to make a kahoot, because he was kinda give me a hard time. But at least we made It through and If some of my grades are wrong i can always fix It.

Photorealism Is a genre of art that encompasses painting, drawing and other graphic media.  Chuck close American painter, artist and photographer who achieved fame as a photorealist, through his massive-scale portraits. My thoughts about Photorealism makes me have art ideas. Art and photos Is the thing I really like because art Is what i want to do. Anything you think I can probably do, art is my favorite thing to do, and i share my art on youtube, to show everyone that i'm gonna be like them. I'm a dreamer, not a hater, I don't bully people. I also admire people's art.

 Audrey L. Flack is an American artist. Her work pioneered the art genre of photorealism her work encompasses painting, sculpture, and photography. I think I would like to try make art like that because, like I said I have huge plans for art, big plans Indeed. Many people never believe what I try to tell them what i saw so I kinda draw it out, and I show everyone my amazing colors, the color  I mostly use Is red, because It's my favorite color of all and it's the highest color out of all. So If you want to make your dreams come true, make them come true In anyway you can, as possible even. And can also ask  a professional arts to help you make your dreams come true as possible.

Q2: ACO 7.0 - Workplace Safety Video



My goal for this project is about me and my group make a Work Safety Video. My group chose Proper "Handling of Tools and Equipment". Basically we had to tell people how not to break expensive stuff. Me and my teammate, Tahca, did the voiceover together and me also the stuff on camera, Tacha is a very awesome guy and he is also good on camera, very good.  


The biggest takeaway for me in this project would be that I have terrible social skills. Also that video production is hard and that I probably shouldn't ever be camera man again.

If you failed, try again and again.You Need Coding Skills Even If You Don't Want to Be an Engineer. Student will acquire and apply  coding knowledge to demonstrate proper maneuvering through an obstacle. Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic. Strategize, choose your bracket and get a car, open Arduino.

 

I don't know about trusting theses autonomous vehicle and I'm not sure if they can be useful i the future because we can drive our cars well. If we let the technology do all the work for us them that's kind of lazy what we are doing. Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to create and test automated solution. The vehicle must get to its destination quickly and safely. The vehicle must stop while first responders care for any victims. The vehicle must return to the hospital quickly and safely.

ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

 I use the line for  tracing my drawing  I didn't use texture. Controlling the pad to dress the image was kind of hard. I've been trying to make everything perfect  to trace the image so It can look nice and neat. I tried to do my very best make my favorite the into a drawing. The 7 Elements of art I started is with lines by dressing my awesome picture into a drawing. I never finished the rest, but I'm  satisfied what I did today, because I'm happy what did even If It's finished or not, I still say to  myself I did great and that's why I said i'm satisfied what I did to day.

I took my landscape at my school. It's different from my still image because I had to dress my still Image but didn't get it done.  I used Is Texture of black and white and using directions from the teacher to follow what the teacher said and making sure I don't fall behind so I can get caught up with everything and the last thing I used Is harmony. Harmony Is when everything works together so It can turn out well. That's how I use my art work. And I'm satisfied what Is did today.

My photo i used is me the Mighty Triton Prime. It was taken at m house. What It means to me that I'm a fun loving hero. It had some shading, texture and layers

ACO 5.0 - Audio Production

Red Strike
Intonation and inflection are similar and they get the audience attention, Their both used to make your topic flow better and giving crazy and dramatic effect Into your piece. I am the Vocal, my job Is to speak the words in my scripts I have to say, If I need help I ask Mr. Sanderl for help, editing etc for my team. Being the vocal Is kind of hard because I need to rehearse my line and memorize It, but It's worth a shot. And once I memorize my lines good I can be ready to rock and riot. And make sure don't make any mistakes when you are acting.
Then, reflect on how well did your team. How well did you and your team did on your project goal of communicating with a specific message to the people.
