This week in Broadcast Technology, we got the chance to go on a scavenger hunt, where my friend, Sean and I traveled around the school to look for specific shots. I was very enthusiastic for this project because I love shooting things that might seem different and unique. Several shots were easy to get, like something red or a soda/snack machine. However a couple of the shots were a little awkward, especially when we had to ask the police officer to shake our hands. Although there is something about looking around, trying to find the perfect shot that makes videotaping so fantastic and enjoyable. Another aspect I found interesting is when students or teachers walk into your shot. People may think that that is ruining your shot, however I think it makes the movie look real and authentic. All in all, the Video Scavenger Hunt was a great project that gave me and Sean a introduction to getting unusual and unexpected shots for broadcasting. I can't wait to start editing it.
For our first project of the new semester, Mr. Goble assigned us an iMovie project. I had used iMovie before, however I was a little nervous to show my class different aspects of my life that I wouldn't usually tell them. Such as going to summer camp, and a percussionist. Yet for my first assignment in Broadcast Technology, I thought it went fairly well. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and asked questions about the pictures afterwards. All in all, the iAm iMovie was an enjoyable first project and a great way to start off the semester.
