Stuck movies

Description: On Monday, we watched a really funny movie about 2 people who get stuck on an escalator and don't have the ability to act. Have you seen it?

Feedback: i think that the video is good because it show the ability not to act.
Feed forward: I think that the video is good but next time it could have more laugh in it. 

  • Video - 30 seconds long, time is limited.
  • Scenario - Show someone being stuck and not using the ability to act. 
  • Clear Message - Short sharp clip. Can the watcher get the point of your video?
  • Unique - Coming up with something funny that gets a laugh from others. 
  • Time Passing - Do you need to show time passing in your clip to emphasise your message. 
Criteria: (Movie)
  • Light - Make sure the sun isn’t creating a hard to see clip. 
  • Voice Volume - Needs to be louder than other background volume eg Noise, Kids.
  • Frame - What’s in the frame to make your message obvious. 
  • Steady Hands - Make sure the camera is still. 
  • Individual Clips - Don’t do one continuous shot of 30 seconds. Make a range of short clips and join together.

i got better at keeping the camera still. next time i will stay out of the sun.

Title: Te Ahu a Turanga Noho Marae

Description:  In week 7, we had an overnight stay at the local Marae in Woodville.  We were immersed in Maori culture and participated in a range of activities.  We set two goals to focus on during our stay.

Big Idea:  
1.  Did you achieve your goals?  How do you know?
My goal is to eat food I don't like like beans and I achieved eating them.
 I didn't achieve my other goal because I didn't wake up at 7am
2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?
 sleeping in a room with lots of people I don't know. I got to sleep straight away
3.  What challenged you the most and why?
The stilts because I kept falling of and I couldn't balance on them.
