Public Service Announcement

A powerful PSA can have a major impact on some audience, depending on how strong they make their statement.  I think that a PSA could persuade a person but all depends how that person takes it. A PSA can touch some people in different ways, personally i think it depends how the serious the viewer takes it. I hope that young kids don't try vaping at a young age because there are other things to focus on in life like school and being cool without a vape and throwing clouds or doing tricks. Also that vaping looks healthier but the point is smoke going into your lungs and vapor is like water and that water sits in your lungs.

Olelo is a statewide student video contest for the students of Hawai'i. Youth Xchange empowers youth to identify and bring critical community issues to the forefront video contest. i think there are many opportunities because there are always a job for video editing and filming for companies and business.  i think the benefits is always trying to accomplish something and getting it done always feels good. when you complete something for a good cause or reason it feels good.

Digital Manipulation

First, give an overview of this project by explaining the Surrealism art movement. Then explain each of your surrealist concepts. How did presenting each of your concepts before actually creating them help or hinder your end result? Which of your final images do you think presents your most powerful message and why? (6 sentence minimum)

Next, do your research first... Explain hexadecimal colors and how color information is used in both RGB and CMYK models. What is lossy and lossless compression and how do they relate to the JPG, GIF, PNG and RAW image formats? Why does the complexity and size of digital files matter in relation to data storage limits? Describe the different uses of raster and vector graphic data. How can dithering and error diffusion be used for creative effects in Photoshop? (6 sentence minimum)

CMYK is for printing and RBG is for computer.  As a designer it is the essential to know when to use those aspects. it lays down one color at a time till the next one needs to go down. the printer has came a long way being able to print with RGB. But the standard stays the same.

Finally, how does the relationship between technology and productivity impact digital media? Imagine creating surrealist images without computers, digital cameras or photoshop... How would you do it? How might the end result differ from our digital format? Conclude with a critique of your best image and brief reflection of the results from our class critique. (6 sentence minimum)

Hiki No Video

My story is about invasive fish in our waters in Hawaii. It's about how invasive fish are taking over our reefs to the point where overpopulation takes away food sources from indigenous fish. Because we live in Hawaii, we're bound to the culture of eating fish, but our fish are no longer as healthy to eat. The audience will care about this because it's important to preserve and protect our ocean environment. From the critique of our Rough Cut, our largest area for improvement is the B-Roll. In order to improve our B-Roll, we will film additional sequences after school.

Practice Story

We chose to interview Dylan because he was willing to contribute to our story and his topic was interesting. Learning about his surfing lifestyle and how he grew up surfing. I was the interviewer, but I wasn't here that much for this practice story. This was a good learning experience for when we do our final story.

Safety is important because we alway need to be safe from getting hurt or something being stolen. Three concerns should be that make sure we always have our gear with us, make sure we film a save environment. The next thing we should have more broll and better questions to ask.

ALD 6.1: Anticipate potential health and wellness concerns while operating computing devices in order to enhance workplace safety.

Interview Composition

The difference between a host shot or reporter shot and a interview shot is that, a host shot or reporter shot is a interview shot has a bunch of things that you'll need like, perfect head room, enough look space, and good lighting to make. Look room is the space from your interviewee and to the end of the frame. Your interviewee shouldn't be dead center of your shot.

To shoot a perfect and successful interview is the distance from your interviewee and compress the background, also make sure he or she is not int he center and has good lighting on their face. To make your interview easy as possible is find the sun put ur interviewee little off the side and little shadow on the face. Another one would be the distance make sure you are far enough from your interviewer and interviewee.

Too much headroom.

Bullseye shot are definitely no-nos.

Too much look room and distracting backgrounds can be a bad thing.

Cinemagraph Plan

Cinemagraph Plan:
I am going to create a cinemagraph of a wheel spinning on a skateboard. I plan to film this at my house in the yard. I'm going to get a close up of the front wheel and bearings moving.

Cinemagraph Reflection:
Although I wasn't able to follow through with my plan, I did create a spinning wheel cinemagraph in class. I feel that I did a good job on this because I did my best work and hoped that it would actually move. After completing the process, I was happy to see that my image worked.
