Q4: ALD 6.0 - Practice Story





We chose our interviewee by seeing who had the most interesting story and what will be worth filming. Everyone helped out by staying on task and doing their part in the film. We chose our roles by seeing who wanted what role, and then we distributed various roles accordingly. everyone stayed committed to the project and some roles fluctuated because sometimes people were absent or working on something else. I think the shifting of roles to where it was needed helped us get the project at least close to done, but I don't think it would work for a bigger project because it also negatively impacted the quality.




Safety is important when producing because, besides the obvious point that we don't want anyone getting hurt on the set, it also significantly slows down our production if we're missing a member of our crew. While filming, you should make sure that your equipment is in a safe and secure location, where it cant be easily stolen or accidentally broken. Another thing you should practice is situational awareness, make sure you're aware of your surroundings and your location, if you're by a cliff, maybe don't start backing up while looking through your camera to get that perfect shot. The final thing thats very important is making sure your subject is safe, if your star actor breaks his elbow, you cant get that final shot and it could end up delaying your filming, as well as ruining your reputation as a filmmaker.









based on are critic results we will make sure to add b-roll next time and use time more better

Q3: ALD 4.0 - Editing Practice




Editing techniques add to the story because it makes it look more real  and eye grabbing and more people will want to do what the ad says or might watch it agin because its so eye grabbing and so real like. yes they are intended to transition smoothly. and a film make could build  conflict suspense, anticipation or anxiety because of pressure.

Q3: ALD 2.0 - Public Service Announcement




A PSA could have a positive effect and a negative effect on a audience. I think it could persuade someone because some people could see the difference it could make. I hope to make people eat more local foods and people should care because local foods are more healthy and more better for the body and its cheaper then processed food.

this PSA is about public service. Some important rules are that it had to be about public service and it had to be a PSA video under 30 minutes. I think there are so many opportunities because its such a big event and the winning prize could benefit and help a-lot of people. I think the students benefit the most because of all of the opportunities/winnings that they could earn. we edited some more things and other things where changed.

Q3: ALD 4.0 - Cinemagraphs



A Cinemagraph is a still photograph in which a minor and repeated movement occurs, forming a video clip. My strengths in this project is the video recording part and the weaknesses in this project was using final cut pro to edit the video. My first Cinemagraph was a video of someone jumping with a globe spinning. I think i think it turned out horrible I did not even finish it because because I had to move on to my 2 cinemagraph. I think my 2 cinemagraph turned out great and i think it is everything i expected. One thing I could improve on is the part at the end where you can see a cut.



My last cinemagraph is a screen recorded video of a car parked but the buildings and the wall is moving. I think my last cine turned out amazing but one think i can improve on is the cut at the end of the gif. I think the point of creating a cinemagraph is to make only some parts of the video move and some other parts not move. and some things cinemagraphs can do that videos ca not is make a moving picture. I would have agree on my critique results I did horrible and i could of done a-lot better and if we ever do this agin i will do a-lot better

Q2: ACO 1.0 - Modern Art Movement




The cultural movement that gave rise to the art style in are presentation was Abstract Expressionism. The influence that it had was that lots of people was inspired by this art style and lots of cool pantings where made in this time line. Artists  contribute to culture by making art that shows there emotion in the panting. My thoughts about this art movement is that its is its kinda boring there is no cool designs or \
art that pops out at me but to someone else it may differ .



The artist that created that panting was John Chamberlain and I think he was hoping to show spontaneously crafted pieces with car parts found in junkyards.

Filename: P#T# Workplace Safety.mov

Week 1-2 DIGITAL PORTFOLIO REFLECTION:

First, describe the project goal and the topic that your team selected in your own words. Tell us about your teammates and hyperlink each person's name to their Digital Portfolio. What did each person do to contribute to the project? Who do you feel deserves special recognition for giving their best effort and why? How did that person go above and beyond for the team? (6 Sentence minimum)




The project goal we set was to have A finished video by the end of this week and the project we chose was preparing for high risk and injuries Victor Kohm  was in charge of the audio  I was in charge of the digital profile Edouard Gendron was in charge of recording Nicolas Koufis and was in charge of the script. I think everyone deserves a special recognition because we all  did a great job helping out make the video


Then, explain your biggest "takeaway" from this project... What did you learn about workplace safety, video production, communication, etc. Conclude with a reflection of your highest and lowest scoring areas from the critique results. Given the confines of this project's variables (ie, location, props, wind, cameras, editing, etc.) what could you have done differently as a team to increase the production value of your finished video? (6 Sentence minimum)



 I learned that there are a-lot of common safety hazards in a work place and you have to be extra careful. One thing we could have done differently is maybe had a better sound track that is not repeating. My biggest take away form this that I learn about editing a video better. The highest score  we had was reverence of visuals and the lowest score we had was entreatment value. The camera we used was a iPhone 5 camera and we filmed are video at  kapaa high school.

Why is coding an important skill to learn, even if you don't plan to be a programmer? Explain Challenge #1 and tell us about the logic statement you used to tackle it. Describe each command (Go, Steering, Delay) that was required to program your Altino car to complete the figure 8. How did you feel working through the process of trial and error? (6 Sentence minimum)
I felt happy because i could start to get better at coding and it was very fun coding the car even if it was hard to do.

coding is important because it can help you get a job and help you with every day things on a computer/ phone ect... and you don't have to do pay someone to help you fix  your computer


Describe the new commands that were required to successfully complete Challenge #2 (While Loop, Array, Display Line, Sound). Would you ever trust an autonomous vehicle to give you a ride... please explain your answer. Do you think autonomous vehicles will be used in the future to carry out complex tasks like an ambulance responding to accidents... why or why not? (6 Sentence minimum)
the commands required in challenge 2 is the command to make the car light was like a ambulance and make repeating sounds
