We created a documentary on filmmaking.

We did really well on our cinematography and audio, it came out nice and CRISP.

We needed a lot of footage, a ton of people who were recording. Sometimes they were not even recording.

We were really creative with our filming, even filming some people’s screens that were filming. A good example is the fact that we got about 30 minutes of footage, and used 2 minutes. We used the best of our product to make it better.

I learned how to properly use a lot of technology and how to edit. I felt as though it was very good.

Huck’s Blogs Reflection

In 8th grade, we went to ShiMenShan, a beautiful mountain trip with amazing and stellar views.  Throughout the trip, I feel like I really demonstrated Service. Throughout the wall, my friend and I were scared at certain parts. However, we kept helping each other and pushing on, despite how scared we were. But I still think I struggled with communication. During the raft building, I didn’t talk with my group much due to the fact that they were not talking to me. I still think I can work on that. Overall, I give the ShiMenShan trip 3/5.

 

Ignite Blurb

Within my Storytelling group, I was a very big contributor when it came to writing. I wrote a great deal of our podcast and worked very hard on it. What I mainly wrote were some of the scenes before the main action, as that is what I felt I needed to work on. Within the Tree podcast, I feel as I did a great deal of work in all areas.

Giver Pain Discussion

Something important to remember is you cannot feel one thing without the opposite. You cannot feel love without loss; you cannot feel fun without misery; and likewise, you cannot feel happy without feeling sad. This matters because what is the point of living life if you cannot be happy? Sure, it will protect you from pain; but there is no joy in life without; well, joy.

I have lost a close relative in the form of my Great Aunt less than a month ago, and you may think that this experience was useless; however, it has helped me in many ways. It has prepared me for the loss of other relatives in the way that I can cope with it better. And this experience will help me longer in life.

I would not take away the experience because it will help me further in life when I lose other family members. And that is something important to me.
