Q2: ACO 5.0 - Visual Statement

GOAL: Create a 2-3 minute visual statement that gives your personal view about an issue that is relevant to your audience. Support your high-quality voiceover with relevant and proprietary visuals: video, photos or a mix of both. You may also create your own sound effects and Garage Band soundtrack. Finally, work together to skillfully edit all of the pieces together using Final Cut Pro.


First, explain your topic & message... Why it's important to you and your partners? Then put the project goal into your own words, detailing the project requirements. Link to your partners' digital portfolios and describe their roles on the team and how they contributed to the production of your vision statement. (6 sentence minimum)

Then, tell us about the Final Cut Pro editing tips and tricks you've learned and how you incorporated them in your video. Why is it important to use FCPX Libraries, Events and Projects properly? Explain why audio levels in different clips can vary drastically and how to correctly balance what your audience will hear. Which part of your video do you think displays higher quality... the audio or the video and why? (6 sentence minimum) 

I was not the editor

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)

The biggest challenges of this challenge was getting a good angle to film because the ground was uneven. The people making things happen was Ed and Joshua. The most enjoyable part of this project was filming because we got to go outside

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.

Q2: ACO 7.0 - Workplace Safety Video

GOAL: Work in teams to create a 60-90 second instructional video with clear audio & relevant visuals to address one of the following workplace safety topics:

Avoiding stress and burnout

Chemical or material handling

Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)

Preventing hostile work environments

Proper handling of tools and equipment

Preparing for high risk activity and injuries

Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health (HIOSH)

Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

Filename: P#T# Workplace


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.

3) Add your critique results after the second paragraph, above the tags

ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

GOAL: Complete 2 coding challenges using Arduino Software with Altino cars.

Challenge 1: Complete a figure 8 pattern without collisions... fastest time wins!

Challenge 2: Ambulance responds to an accident... with lights, sirens and SPEED!


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

  I would trust autonomous vehicle but would  be kinda skeptical about it.

ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

First, what Elements of Art are used in your digital Still Life painting? Describe how you specifically used each element. Explain the relationship between the size of your texture brush and controlling the value scale of your image. What part of the digital painting process do you find most enjoyable and which part do you find monotonous or challenging and why? (6 Sentence minimum)

I used line to outline the contrast of my subject and my brush size was 12px 75% and i used the brush to make darker shading and i used 5px 75%

Next, explain where your landscape image was taken. Using the Elements of Art as keywords, describe the similarities and differences between your finished landscape image and your finished still image. Reflect on your process... Did you stay with the more basic beginning tutorial or were you able to refine the image using advanced filter techniques? How did your technique affect the outcome? (6 Sentence minimum)  i took my image at school and my image is a pic of a cup

Finally, tell us a little about the portrait photo you are using... Where was it taken?  mean to you? Explain how this final image uses all of the Elements of Art. Lastly, conclude with a summary of your critique results... Do you agree with them, why or why not? (6 Sentence minimum)

I used a photo I shot with the school's mac book.

My grade was not very good I did a awful job on my land photo it look's like something a alien would see I think next time i would put less contrast in my photo so make it look's more like a drawing and less like something a alien would see. I would have to agree with them on the grade I did a poor job on the still life image I rushed the photo and did not put a lot of time on the background and the pens on the mug and the portrait has a lot of scribbles on the hair and the shirt .  


ACO 3.1 Analyze how elements and principles of design in various forms of media are applied to communicate to a specific audience. Elements of Art: Space, Line, Color, Shape, Texture, Form, Value.

ACO 5.0 - Audio Production

GOAL: Write and produce an audio recording that explores the 7 Principles of Design in the style of a talk show, radio personality, podcast, game show, book on tape, spoken word, or rap.


First, explain how intonation and inflection can be used to maintain the interest of your audience. Describe your role in this assignment... Were you the team leader, audio technician, director, or vocal talent? What did that job require you to do? How important is the rehearsal process and what needs to happen before recording the entire script in ONE take? (6 Sentence minimum).
 Intonation & inflection helped the intrestest of my audience because some words needs more accent  or a more loud voice i was the vocal part in my team but ended up doing most of the script all on my own

Then, reflect on your results from the critique. How well did your team meet the project goal of communicating a specific message to your audience while keeping them engaged? What obstacles did you face along the way and what did you do to overcome them? If you had to do this project again with the same group of people, what would you do to improve? (6 Sentence minimum).

I think are critique was some what good and some what bad because we did not define all of the 7 principles of design that well we just crammed them in at the last second but i think lots of people likes r idea and relevance of answers.
