Hello people of the internet. I will be changing the name of my blog to Loʻomaikaʻi.weebly.com. so if you want to see embarrassing things of me go there okay bye.
Well My first day of school was pretty scary i mean you try going to entire new school that your do not live on. I thought that it went pretty good I mean I only went to the wrong class once for three days. I am keeping up with my grades up here ate kamehameha here look
Those were for science, english, Visual arts. My teachers are supposed to write the grade evey week but they didn't put it up there yet so I can't show that to you guys yet but when they do I will write a new blog post I have made some new changes to my blog and I have changed the url.
I really miss my friends and family. I mean I really miss all of my sixth grade teachers as well because I haven't met the seventh grade teachers. I will be coming home this weekend for Labor Day weekend. I have been boarding for the past month and so far I have been so many places, I have been to Pearl Ridge last week saturday then I went to the water park called Wet'N'Wild it was super fun. I have made many new friends including some day students. About a week a ago a girl called us broke and homeless, that was super mean and this is going to sound nothing like me but I wanted her to get expelled.
Boarding is really great I got to meet so much people that I think I have made some new best friends. These kids are from all over Hawai‘i its really impressive. I have got some pretty hard classes harder than the classes from sixth grade for sure I have made some really cool friends but most of them are the boarders so yeah. My life is going great so leave me a comment down below
Well first my favorite song is called " This Is Going To Be The Best Day Of My Life". This song makes me feel happy. Its more of a pump me up song. When ever I feel sad and I play this song it cheers me up and makes me feel better. This song is my favorite because for me it seemed very catchy so I started to listen to over and over again.
So what song we chose was Uptown Funk. The artists who sang the song are Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson. But for this project we will be using the song from KidzBob because the real song is a little inappropriate. The reason why we chose this song is because we are all happy kind of people and we wanted a really happy song to go with us. Also we chose this because we took a vote and the most of us chose Uptown Funk.
Well for one of the stories of the music video we will just be having fun. The other part is us story telling everyone that we will be the star of Saturday night and know one believes us. What this song is about is just having fun and being CRAZY and silly. So if This song is fun and silly we will do fun and silly things in the music video. It is also about going out into the city and the way we will do that is we will be behind a green screen. That is how we will be showing our story.
Our story is called Kynan Escapes Nightmare In our story Kynan is going on a flight on an airplane, and he has a fear of flight. So what our focus statement is that Kynan overcomes his fear of flight. Kynan really has a fear of flying when he was super young. Death would represent his fear of flying to overcome his fear he has to beet him a game of chess. When he does he will save the plane from going down.
In our story we have a lesson, our lesson is that you should face your fear of anything. So in the story Kynan is afraid of airplanes. The way Kynan faces his fear is that he challenges Death in a battle in chess. You should face your fears because they just hold you back. Facing your fear means that you can do anything.
One of the worst moments was when it was coming close to the rough cut. It was a close one we almost didn't make it but we did. It was really hard work luckily thanks to a boy/girl who wrote an email to Mr.Sanderl we got to have extended time to work on it. That was probably one of the best moments as a team in my opinion, but my teammates may think other wise. Another wonderful moment was when we finished our story, I felt so happy that we finished our animation yes, yes, YESSS!
Some really cool facts about my teammates are that there really fun to work with. Now for Hershel he is super smart, and he has so much fun with his family. Kynan is a really funny he fools around a lot, he also is good at riding dirt bike. Kamalei is a really cool, and he reads a lot and I mean a lot. My team mates are amazing and fun to work with.
Do you know what a GIF is ? GIF is an acronym for Graphics Interchange Format. This format of a picture allows it to be viewable on the internet. It is a bunch of images put together and goes over every image to make it look like its moving on its own. Stop motion is similar to a GIF but it is also different. another word for stop motion is called stop frame. Stop motion is when it is an image that manipulates the eyes to make it look like the object is moving on its own. But it is actually the object is moving in small increments.
The story we will be showing and telling is Kynan Escapes Nightmare. Kynan knew exactly what he wanted unlike me I didn't know what to do for the story. So we went with Kynan's story because his idea was really good. the reason why the audience should care is because the story is about overcoming your fear of anything. So the character death is representative of Kynan's fear of flight.
What Typography is, is that it puts text in front of the image so that the words mach up with the person that you did. it will look like the the words make it looks like the words make up the face. The way typography works is that it puts a beautiful image in your head which is can be called a lasting impact. It also make you remember it because it has any sentimental value. they way it works is that it puts an image that you remember for a long time for example a trip to Disney land you remember this because it is really big and sentimental to your family plus you have so much fun why would you want to forget this trip.
One of the biggest challenges were when we had to go back in forth to the instructions then apply it to the real thing. Sometimes I would mess up then I would have to start all over which was really painful. So what I did was after a while when I kept messing up I started to understand what it was saying and that sort of helped me. I also over came the problem by working hard and not giving up even when I wanted too. I also had another problem which was making the paint brush tool I also forgot a lot of things so I just went back to the tutorial.
Well in my first typography image I did an innovator what made that image so special was that I just chose random words off the internet. The words we had to make them super tiny. The next typography image we had to do was take a picture of one of the teachers in our school and ask them a lot of questions so that we could use those words to put over my teachers face. For the words it was a little hard to see because the words that we used we put them on top of each other. The last image is of me, well every one didn't take a picture of me but we are doing our selves. So for the word part of it we just had to put words that describe us.
The first typography image was about an innovator Mr. Sanderl Helped me by explaining it to me
The second image was about a teacher we had a video to help us out.
This third image was about me for help we had to read of a page with in the instruction.
HDR is when you take a lot of pictures with different exposure compensation.The picture looks really good having the right amount of lighting in just the right spot and the right amount of darkness in the right spot. What I really like about HDR is that It looks really nice in the end. I really like that its really beautiful and that they have so much color. The one thing I don't like about HDR is that the camera has to stay still through the whole thing one little movement can mess up the whole thing.
To create an HDR image you need to find a beautiful place that has a horizon line another thing you might want to look for is golden hours. When you find a great place you want to set the exposure compensation the lowest you want. then every time you snap a picture you want to change the exposure compensation by one. The more pictures you take the clearer your image would be. How you change the exposure compensation is that well there are different was for different cameras so for the Cannon you press the magnifying glass + and the magnifying glass -.
Well The reason why I did those the three pictures were that I love my grandma so I chose her. I also made sure that her background was interesting but I also made it s that the background isn't totally distracting. The reason why I chose to to the mountain was because It was a beautiful day and The beautiful sleeping giant was in my back yard. But before I had thought of that I was planning to hike up the mountain. so for the third image we had to combine the the first two images. I did all of this in photoshop it was really amazing.
Well our project was a movie trailer we made it men in black four. So my team mates were kind of fun, but some of them slacked off. Makaio was great he was on it, Micah procrastinated a little but he was there when we needed him most, now its Jason he slacked off more than we expected. To me I felt like the leader so I took charge. I contributed by being there when I was needed.
So the requirements were that we had to have one minute and thirty seconds to two minutes and thirty seconds. Which we made with two minutes and twenty-nine seconds. The next requirement was that we needed to have foley, we also had that. There was five scene we also had that. We have the voice acting script and text layover. Last we have the team movie trailer poster.
So with the class critique I think we did pretty good. Did I agree with the class critique, sure but I thought we could have done a lot better. Some of the things that they said I didn't agree with but I didn't say anything. I learned a lot from this project for example you can't depend on people to be there when we need them. Also you have to work with what you have.
The main characters that will be in the movie will be Me, Makaio, Jason, and Micah.We also have a lot of other people in the movie but those are the main characters. So what I picture is me and Micah touching light saber. Also Jason and Makaio on the bottom of the screen eating popcorn. If that's okay with him because I don't really know.
So the next thing I will be talking about is the title and the other text. So the title will be black because well the title is men in black. The other text will be the other characters. We will also have the critics and there report on our movie. Also the production company. Oh ya I almost forgot we also have to use kerning, kerning is the spacing of letters.
The filters really made a big difference on my movie poster. We also used layer affects which made everything come to place. With out the layers the movie poster would be a disaster. so I put the picture on the bottom so that it wouldn't get in the way of my writing and the title. I also used a stroke and a gradient overlay.
