this is going to be my last post of passion action for it is the end of term 2 tomorrow and in the whole of year 6 we have completed our projects. Today we presented our projects in the JYA foyer to Mrs V (the head of junior school), some of the year 6 parents, fellow year 6’s and the year 5 students because they are creating their passion projects next year. It was a great experience, my passion project went really well, my music video was a success and it was a very enjoyable experince for me. The skills I learnt from creating the music video was the sound projection, the production of editing, fiming technigues (kepping the camera still is one), lighting settings, transitions through clips, the fact of what am I going to film, the story base of the video, and all along every single clip keeping the camera in focus. The pros and cons of the presentation were these: the cons: where I was placed in the JYA foyer wasn’t exactly a fabulous place to present, there were many people crammed in my area and not as much people came to visit the area, secondly the fact that 9 people were presenting per 10 minutes at the same time, when it was my turn to present a lot of people right near me were presenting at the same time and it was very distracting for most of the people near me presenting for they had music as well. The pros were the amount of people that came to watch the presentation was a very large number altogether and when it wasn’t your turn to present you got a chance to watch other peoples presentations. I really enjoyed creating the music video and I would really encourage creating one if anyone just thinks they might like to. Thanks for reading my last post on my passion project!
here to breif you up on my Passion Action. As I am creating music videos for my project there are lots of different elements to the proccess of making the music videos. Firstly, the songs of my videos are: 1) See you again by Wiz Khalifa, 2) Titanium by David Guetta, 3) Shutup and Dance by Walk the moon. The pros of recent filming and editing were today I got permission to use a camera to record some people dancing and having fun at my school. It is amazingly fun to brainstorm different ways of filming and shooting and the structure and storyline of my videos. The cons are with the music I can not download it on the app, I have to record from another device and it is extremly hard to make sure there is no noise in the backround. Sometimes it can be difficult to get the timing or come up at all of my footage. Thanks for tuning in,
My very recent “Passion/Action…” was about how I was having difficulties with my movie. Well I have decided that since I might not be able to accomplish this goal I will be doing something along the lines of my movie. In the end of my movie I was going to do a music video to end the movie good, so I remember creating different dance combinations and different aspects to it. I really enjoyed this experience so I have decided to create a music video for my passion of wanting to film & direct, still have actors dancing, structering all the different aspects and especially along with filming learning the technique of this, like the right angles, lighting, scenery and clothing. I will probably be using the app “Imovie” for many reasons- mostly that it can edit, you can voice over and the there is many affects for filming that I can use. I am very excited for this project and can’t wait to get started- I will probably tonight. My chose of song that I am using for my music video is Shutup and Dance by walk the moon.
By the way if any Rosie girls are reading this if you possibly want to be in one of my music videos let me know- It will only be for one day I will need you.
I just want to breif you up on whats going on in “Passion Action” terms. Well things are going ok. I have created my movie script and have a basic idea of the filming scedule, sometime on monday, friday and saturday. I have a few actors but I have had a few bumps on the journey: It looks I might have gone a bit to far into all the rehersals and film dates, I was intending on having girls in my year, Year 6 act in my movie but a lot of them have comitments and ofcourse passion projects like me and I am struggling in finding whom I am filming. I probably went a bit far ahead without reaising and did not understand how much comitment I was asking. But I am coping and I’m sure it will be all right in the end, I just need to keep a grip on the wheel and try to sit comfortably in the car seat. if it comes to worst I can always change climate,I could make an animated movie or stopmotion. As my favourite quote says- “It is hard to fail but it is worse to have never tried to succeed.”-Theodore Rosevelt
recently in year 6 we have been assigned to create a blog post on the materials, resources, skills and information that will need to be gathered for our passion project, this will be it. If you do not already know I am creating music videos for my project.
These are the materials that will be used to create my music video:
– The Ipad mini for the recording device
– My house and neighborhood will be used to shoot the videos
– Costumes and makeup will be needed for the people included in my videos
– I will be using Imovie as the app to create the music videos
– Friends from my school will be chosen to be in my music videos
– Time slots for shooting and creating
These are resources I will use for information:
– My family- espeically my sister is very great on technoligy and filming
– Youtube for music inspiration in my videos and tutorols on how to film
– Learning how to fully use a movie maker app
– Creating and peicing together a well made script
– Learning how emotions should properly be used in a movie
– Study the right type of song for a mood
– Acquire a credits list in movie
– How do you build the structure of a music video?
– How do I handle Imovie to create well done music videos?
How will I know I have learned this skill…
I will know I have learned the skill of making well done music videos by structuring, filming, designing, editing and creating good music videos and will have discovered positive feedback on my work.
Today at school my year 6 class found out we were going to be doing our passion projects! What that means is that each student in year 6 shall choose a passion to do a project on for a long term project, throughout term 2. Things like maybe choosing some ancient family recipes and making them into a cook book whilst cooking the recipes at home would be the sort of thing you would do. In the past other students have done things like designing and sewing dresses, learning about photography or learning how to play a new instrument or build something new. Our basic instructions are to build,learn, make or create something new that we haven’t experienced before.
After a lot of thinking I first thought of making a claymation but I decided that it would be difficult because I don’t have proper voice recording equipment and I had done it before in class so I decided not to do that but maybe something quite similar. Later I realised since I have a passion also for acting I might create a short film! It should be fun and exciting since I have not yet experienced directing, scripting, creating and editing and possibly acting in a short film before. This film will include some of my friends (and possibly me) plus my dog Milo and perhaps some family members. I have decided on making the short film around 10-15 minutes. I will also create a trailer for the presentation in the school just so the short film can be viewed by year 6 but for the school presentation I feel the movie will be to long.
I am very soon going to be starting the script and I can’t wait for this exciting project. I will be posting weekly on this project so stay tuned.
