well its a horror film and its called "the evil that follows." i came up with the title and decide to do a horror film and my team all agree to it. and i gotta say we did a great job doing it and i honestly liked doing the horror film with My team. i have chose to focus on this idea because it honestly brings out the acting and the effort that we put together. and what we learned in digital media is that we had really did a great job. and we learned how we can edit, and how we can do like all different types of amazing things .

For our final video project we decided to do a short horror film. We chose to focus on this idea because everyone in our group had interests in horror movies and thought it would be fun to do. Our video is about kids who play around with a ouija board at a local cemetery. The message behind our video is to not play around with dark arts or black magic. I think this final video project showcases our final cut skills that we learned in digital media. During the editing process we tried to level the audio, add effects, and use other techniques to try to improve our video.

ALD 3.0 - Hiki No Video

GOAL: Create a 3 minute personal profile or news story that showcases high quality interview composition, clearly recorded voiceovers, natural sounds, stable and well composed 3 shot B-Roll sequences, L & J-cuts, balanced audio and smooth, logical progression of the story with conflict resolution.

Our Hiki No video of saving battery on mobile device technology is what we are working on. Doing the steps on how to save battery taught me that when i didn't know how to save battery because i always been on my phone? I realized that being on my phone? can waist battery and wont be able to contact people or incase of emergency, that is why like social media is not important now days. so there is people out there that doesn't know how to save battery. we made a video of showing people that going on your phones? is making battery go low. and waisting data. also it makes your phone heat up.

First of all? we didn't need permission because we was filming on school campus. And my crew is honestly trying there best to make it work. It takes time to publish the video. They are filming, had to do editing, background sounds, put the film in together and I am proud that they are putting this together. And i also believe that they are professionals. They can do it and will do it. And in the future? honestly we don't know what the future holds for us yet. We gonna wait and see. And we could have improved the B-Roll. And we should have work on that, the rest that they did? is amazing. I am surprised also impressed. They are doing their best.

ALD 5.0 - Interview Composition

Learn how to compose high quality interviews shots according to PBS Hawaii Standards through a pretest and reshoot experience... PRETEST: Each team will turn in at least 6 still images (2-3 per person) of what they believe to be acceptable interview composition. RESHOOT: After the critique, reshoot your teammates with a variety of correct interview compositions that meet PBS standards (2-3 per person).

Having a face of the video whether being the host or the interviewee is key, there are two shots to know the difference between. That is a host and an interview shot. The difference is a host shot is when a person is talking directly into the camera or directly to the audience whereas an interview shot is a shot that shows who is telling the story and they're looking toward an interviewer. The background for a host shot is a clear sense of place and is placed where they would logically be. For an interview shot the background needs to show space in between interviewee and the background objects, later being compressed to a blur. Placing interviewees against a flat object or surface causes a shadow behind the person so this should never be done. Another good tip would be having "look room" which is the space from the eye level of the person being interviewed and the end of the frame. This makes the proportions of the video even and professional. To avoid a profile shot the cameraman would set up "The Line", which means the line from the lens to the nose of the interviewer so there is enough room in between interviewer and interviewee.

The most important part of shooting a successful interview is making the interviewee comfortable. To me this is the most important part of an interview because they are the face of the story having them as relaxed as possible is key. Doing this will add to the story by having them tell you their story in a natural tone. To make this possible having small talk before the interview can make it go smoother. Also going to a location that is comfortable, not a stone bench for example. Another way would be a natural environment for the interviewee such as a chair in their home or a chair in their lawn

1) Place your best interview at the top of the post
2) Between paragraphs, add a google drawing that visually explains how to create "The Line"
3) At the bottom, insert 3 pre-test examples and explain what not to do in each caption
