Written With Passion

Our group has best magazine because we have the best team and rose to the challenge together. I am extremely proud of our teamwork and collaboration, because in the end, our magazine turned out to be WAY more aesthetic and legit than I thought! Personally, I’m very harsh on myself, but I have to admit, that magazine was kick-butt amazing. Although our group was probably the best group that I could ever ask for, I do have some regrets during this project. One major setback for me, was the deleting the photos I took during the Chinese Ethic Park trip. How stupid was I, when I deleted those photos in the trash can, thinking that we wouldn’t need to use them; fortunately, I had saved enough photos to get myself through the final project. A lesson that I learned is that constant communication is the key to constant success. Through our process of checking in on each other once in a while, we were all able to contribute and share ideas to the final project, and in the end when we put it all together, all the sections fit beautifully. All in all, if you would ask me if I wanted to do another project just like this, I would be a total 10/10.

ONE DAY 2017 – Juan Day; Redoing other OneDay projects

So what did I this OneDay? Good question. I went around, asking people what project they were doing for OneDay, and if I had enough interest, I would try to ‘redo’ what they did. I improvised all projects, doing my best, and created a comedic compilation of some of my best ‘recreations’. I visited multiple sights across the school, met a couple of friends, bumped into high-schoolers, but I had finished filming all of my clips by the end of OneDay. I then took the time after school and at home to edit the video, getting it prepared for next day. Click the blog link to watch the video! Hope you enjoy it!

What did you learn? What went well?

I learned editing and filming skills, which helped me improvise and film more clips than I expected.

What would you do differently if you were able to do this again?

I wish I were able to have a specific list of things to do, as I also redid 4 other projects which did make it to the final video. All of the ‘redoing’ was pretty tiring and required a lot of effort.
