So heyo, hi-o, hello, hõla, guten-tag, buenos dias, bonjour. It's me. So today in GT, we're gonna make some radical, sick, awesome, NATURE POETRY!
So yeah we are actually doing nature poetry. So before I get into the actual nature poetry project how about I tell you my two cents about nature eh?
So while I'm the type of person who'd enjoy staying on his computer more than anything else, I enjoy taking in some nature. However I feel like I'd be over exaggerating if i didn't add that I really only like some certain spots in nature, kokee definitely being one but I digress. Personally I feel nature helps me spiritually, As I said I'm the kind of person who'd enjoy his computer more than anything so exercise isn't well, a focus. But really, there's nothing better than overlooking a canyon, letting the air flow through you, and just feeling everything that was there. So yeah, sorry if this was a bit, underwhelming, but hey, trying my best.
Alright, now to the actual project, it involves poetry- -obviously- -and nature time lapses. Now, time lapses, and slow mo's seem pretty obvious to create right? But if you need a refresher, it's simply putting a camera in the right place, and waiting, waiting, and waiting. After that it's just sped up or slowed down, some edits put here and there, and usually you have yourself a time lapse. and congratulations, you now have a goat going super-speed.
Easily the hardest part about doing this all? Getting the actual footage. While opinions might vary and some people may say writing the poem might be the hardest, this for me, without a doubt was really hard. And heck, by the time I'm writing this I still don't have absolutely all of my footage. And the latest struggle was attempting to get the sunset, woke at 5:30, got to the beach by 6, and when the sun finally was visible, I wasn't able to get a good shot because it was going to fast for me to setup. Though favorite part, easily being in nature. In fact, yesterday to get a shot of the waves crashing against the beach, my mom and me packed dinner and I got to eat some french onion soup and watch the waves with a delicious dinner, that's awesome.
CRITIQUE TIME: Sooo... I wasn't actually there for my critique. But! I did get a summary, most people thought of it reaching the goals, and like 11 of them thought it went above and beyond, but let's be real here, it's hard to disagree with a man who has a voice like melted butter but yeah, what'd I'd give myself? Probably a two to three, I mean I read it amazingly, but I had to rely on backup clips to get enough footage.
This is Micah, naturing awaaaaaayyyyy.
