Hey, guess whats coming up soon, less then two weeks away :3, It's an event I've been waiting for since the middle of school, THAT'S RIGHT.
So hey, hello, buenos dias, something else that's a greeting, in GT today we are making (Another) music video, ANOTHER ONE, AND BEST OF ALL I GET TO ACTUALLY CHOOSE THE SONG, MAN I SHOULD REALLY TURN OF CAps lock, there we go. So if you haven't read my blog long enough and you don't know I'm just a massive asinine Hipster, I choose a song that is so old, that your grandfather probably jammed out to it, It's Johnny B. Goode. So yeah, honestly our song is more or less based around our lyrics, well, it was, kinda switched from that, more or less about a kid who gets bullied (If you didn't guess, it's Johnny.) get's advice from his friend, and so-so.
So yeah, our music video is pretty top notch when it comes to songs, I mean, assuming the popular opinion is in chuck berry's favor. But now I bet you are asking yourself, "Any cool filming tricks?" well, yes, and well no. Even with our top group of filming experts ( Linden.) we kinda had some trouble getting really good shots, not to say the whole video's bad, but there is always room for improvement in whatever is done. But yeah, some good shots, some mediocre shots, but never bad, so yeah. ALSO IT'S MY BIRTHDAY (May 17th.)
This music video is easily a good way of wrapping up all what we did and the skills we learned, how you may ask? let me tell you. One thing that Linden, Jason, and I learned from last year was lip synching, I believe for most of us that we nailed it. I think Linden definitely showed his skills in use when he was editing the film in IMovie, did a great job. we used some pretty creative shots, nothing that was truly awe inspiring but had some forethought put into it. So yeah, that's basically the gist of it, thanks for reading.
This is Micah, I'll see you again, in 8th grade :).
Heyo, welcome back to another majestic magnificent Monday (At least when I'm writing this) and the word of the day is no words, because I don't do that. So yeah, we animated a video, with the magical device known as photoshop, if you didn't see the last post... Go do, that. But yeah I was on a team with all girls, irrelevant fact but interesting none the less, we had to exaggerate character facts for the video and uh, well, I'm not sure how it really turned out, I don't know much about my teammates or what they were trying to show, I guess they got my personality mediocrely well, I would have preferred having a different trait exaggerated however (Because no one sees the Wizard of Oz and thinks, "Hot diddly dam the lion is such a cool character").
sO YEAH, well, while thats out of the way, lets talk about the important stuff, humor. Our's is more or less, used to convey the story, it didn't seem to be a big focus at the time but it still plays a somewhat important part. We've tried to include a message that really speaks to our audience, which is if you are determined to do something you can do it. The way we explain this is by the protagonists helping someone overcome their shyness to get their wish granted. So yeah, if I'm being honest with myself I could have done better but, hey, it's all fine.
Yeah, while this is all fine and stuff, I think the main problem I've had was, well, I've never worked with the people I was on the team with, so that's definitely a problem. Our productivity kinda wavered between person to person, I didn't want to have to work on a majority of the scenes but I made really good ones, as others had their own levels of productivity which, well, if you read their blogs you'd likely find out, I sure don't know. Our biggest challenge would likely be that some of our members didn't really know how to animate, which well, when you are making an animated video, is kinda a problem. And the best moment during production would likely be, well, I don't really know, I think for me it was during the last stretch of my scene, but I couldn't speak for the others, so I don't know.
Anyways, this is Micah, signing off, then on, then off again.-
