Music Video Finale

P3T4 Stronger

For my last project of the year I am with Anaya, Ashton, and Jazmyne. Might not be the best of picks but I know that something might come out pretty funny. We picked the song (Stronger) What Doesn't Kill You by Kelly Clarkson. We chose this song because we all knew the song really well. We are going to do the song from 00:25 - 02:25. I am the team leader for this project and I plan to make it the best work I did.
The music video is about an relationship so instead of people we are doing a person and a doughnut. Basically, Ashton will always love doughnuts but he still feels lonely. So he finds new friends and as he supposedly gets stronger he slowly moves along and forgets about doughnut eating. So he gets stronger from having friends and not eating unhealthy doughnuts with me.

The value of this music video is like the value of a very expensive car but in a grade form. This project is probably my favorite so I plan for big things for this music video. I also want to point out that this is hard and isn't really easy, the filming is hard, editing is hard, and meeting up with each other was hard. The only day that we could film or meet up was Sunday. But overall it was a great year.

Movie Trailer Premier

P3T1_XIII Memory from Kapaa Middle School MEDIA on Vimeo.

Hello Everyone and welcome newcomers! Todays post is about our new project "Movie Trailer".

 So what our (Anthony Golego, Sophia Ibanez, JB Arula and movie trailer is about a girl who lost her memories. Going on a journey to find her long lost memories. Meeting a forgotten friend that helps her. I helped out with the idea of our project. Also coming up with one of the characters. I also did the characters personalities and some of the shots we are going to do in the trailer. I have also volunteered to film most scenes at my house.

In our movie trailer progress we have accomplished 3/5 scenes. Our biggest problem was laughing a lot. I guess my teammates are very stage frightened that they laugh. Sometimes its annoying, but sometimes it relieves them then we do perfect. Our movie poster though was good but can be lit up a little more. Our greatest success is being on time. And being cooperative.

From our movie trailer I have learned that our team composition wasn't the greatest even though ours were pretty good. I think we could of done better in the film work. We could of done less dialogue. I also learned that I have a condition were whenever we film on camera I just become into a British man with a British accent. Also I thunk we could do better in our team composition. If we had a guy that did his work Anthony we could of did better.

Metamorphosis Animation

In Me, Mikaila Keawe, and Viora Yamamoto's project we plan to use one or the other ideas we came up with which we will be using. One is about a guy that hates nature and becomes a plant and a caterpillar helps him then he can shape shift into only animals and plants. Then develops a sense of loving nature and becoming animals and trees. The animating application is called Stykz an easy to use site. It is a stop motion/Photoshop way of doing the animation.

In our Styxz animation our main focus is to inspire kids that you can be so much more you just have to be confident. So in our first scene it shows A monkey named Joey getting abused by his mother. And some kids experience this so we are just showing them a way to fix it. In the next scene Joey stands up to his mom and becomes a human with a lot of confidence. Next Joey with no human parents gets sent to a foster home. Living with other kids was cool but the people taking care of them heavily verbally and physically abuses them. Joey runs away. Later after remembering that the other kids are still there he confronts the people taking care of them with the police and arrests the people for abuse. Then all the other kids and Joey go and live at this gigantic very nice house and live happy ever after.

I think that we did pretty ok for being behind. We never really met up all as a team. I think we could have a way better one to if we actually had done a lot of the tasks at hand. My biggest challenge is to be more on task at all times and also be a better team leader than what I have been previously. What I think we did good at is probably the team cooperation. Even though we didn't talk a lot we still made good plans in them. Our animation is a Styxz/photoshop animation. We decided since we were ok at photoshop and Styxz we should make animation with the two programs together. Overall our animation is a 2-3in a 1-4 grade.

Geometric Portraits

Poly 2
Everyone has a unique way of showing facial expressions.Around psychological research has classified six facial expressions which correspond to distinct universal emotions: disgust, sadness, happiness, fear, anger, surprise. Everyone has a unique way of showing facial expressions. People may or may not have the same face or mindset to make the same facial expression as you.But they can understand what it is your feeling.


In our newest project it involves facial expressions. first of all you need to take a picture of you or yourself with a facial expression in a unique way to put emotion into the picture. Then you would download it into finder and rename the image. Next, you can open it in photoshop and start the process of making triangle shapes by using the line tool. After covering your whole face with triangles you can merge them into 1 and start to add the cool look.

My poly portraits are two similar pieces of art but they are not the same. They have a totally different way of making them. one uses an average color and the other is custom. They are different because one was my first and second. One also has more detail. Also they both used different camera qualities. But these two both use he same program to make them. The both where my creations. They are similar because the are both (Polys).

Verbal Landscapes

Nature is a calm and peaceful way of life. Yet at the same time it can be savage. Me I am like nature savage and peaceful. Mostly peaceful. Nature also brings good things, good adventures. Even though nature has wifi and iPads it can bring memories like never before.I like to go and enjoy nature while I still can. Nature is also a very cleansing place to just get peace AND QUITE. Nature it is one of a kind.

Time-lapses are created by speeding up a regular clip of any sort to make the clip seem to go faster than it was already. Slow-mos are different. They make the clip sssslllloooooowwwww down. In a phone you can do slow-mos. but do you ever know how it does it. It first puts parts in the slow mo and slow them down 6 percent. And you can't adjust the speed. Also if you use regular video and use a app like Final Cut Pro X. You can make video fast or slow.

My Favorite part is the filming and editing. The filming part of the project is not as hard but keeping it steady is hard. During the timelapse I did yesterday I was at Kealia river mouth and sat down on a pile rocks letting the camera do it's thing, filming. Editing is my favorite part to because it show how much better you become through years or days of experience. Editing also makes your project better that just film put together.

Poetic Personal Statement

Hello welcome back to my blog. This year is a fresh start and let's begin with this new poetic post!

A poem can be many things and are things. A poem is a sequence of words that relate to what the writer is writing about. A poem is also a way of expressing something. Like love, feeling, and emotion. A poem can also share things about the writer. Like if he/she is in a dark time period or in a happy one. Poems are different than books. Books are a another way of expressing emotion but it tells a complete story. A poem is a story but it tells less details.

I always wanted to travel,

Always walking on gravel,

Confidence will make you stand,

Make things understand,

It makes you feel strong,

It will support right not wrong.
Confidence is the key to the door,

Will you flee?

Rhythm and rhyme are to different things

Music Video Finale

For the last project of the year we are doing a music video. Their are two important things storyline and the lyrics. The way that they are in common is by what they mean. The storyline is a story about the song. Like our song Justin Bieber "Sorry". We are making a story of how I broke her bodyboard and i'm trying to say sorry. The lyrics are the way to express the feelings in the story. One last way that they relate is by telling a story with the lyrics.

My favorite fast edit montage sequence is when it the different clips go closer and farther from the person singing it. Like a close up to the face and a wide of the scenery. What we are gonna do is something a little different we are gonna use a medium, close, and wide shots. We are also doing a little different shots to. The fast editing montage is a good way of getting attention and interest into you music video. Also one of my favorite is the one from "Paradise" by Coldplay. I like how the song has a lot of meaning to the lyrics like how a elephant escapes to paradise to find his friends.

This music video showcases my best work from the whole year by the things I learned like the composition techniques that make the video a little more interesting. Shot types like wide, medium, and close will make the video look cooler. This better showcases my teams work by showing how much we learned all year. See ya later 6th grade and hello the future of 7th.

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

You gotta go and get angry at all of my honesty
You know I try but I don't do too well with apologies
I hope I don't run out of time, could someone call a referee?

'Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness
I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice
By once or twice I mean maybe a couple a hundred times
So let me, oh let me redeem, oh redeem, oh myself tonight'
Cause I just need one more shot at second chances

Yeah, is it too late now to say sorry?
'Cause I'm missing more than just your body
Oh, is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say I'm sorry now?

I'll take every single piece of the blame if you want me to
But you know that there is no innocent one in this game for two
I'll go, I'll go and then you go, you go out and spill the truth
Can we both say the words and forget this?
Yeah, is it too late now to say sorry?
'Cause I'm missing more than your body
