Communication & Media Arts Film Reflection

This semester, I worked hard on my film for Communication and Media Arts film. Overall, it was a pretty fun experience, and it was pretty easy finding out how to present our movie. One thing that we did well was doing the research. We came up with a lot of research in the beginning, so we were able to find images and videos easily. There were some obstacles that we faced sometimes. There were some situations where we couldn’t find a lot of videos, and one time we lost the audio for most of our clips. Editing took a bit longer than I thought, but I managed to get all the clips together.

This project has been really fun for me, especially the editing, because I got to decide how it flowed, if I got the chance to do it again, I would try to get more videos so we don’t just show pictures. I would also try making some of my own clips so it is more original.

I’ll Make a Man Out of You

I chose this song because it felt really inspirational. It also reminded me of getting over all of the obstacles i faced during the school year. Since it’s 8th grade, you get more work to do. The school grades get harder each year, but every time I always manage to pull through.

The Nights

I chose this song because it talked about how you should cherish the moment you are in right now. I know that one day I’ll look back to my past and miss my middle school days. This song represents my middle school life, and how I will miss it a lot in the future.

On Top of The World

I chose this song because there were some points in the school year where I really felt like I was on top of the world. This song represents the feeling well, and it fits in with every happy moments I had.

Happy

I chose this song because for this school year, I felt mostly happy. There were some times in school where I just wanted to smile.

Hakuna Matata

I chose this song because it means “no worries.” I felt this because since it’s the end of the school year, Summer is coming up. I don’t have to worry about anything for two whole months.

You Can Fly! You Can Fly!

I chose this song because it tells you to have faith, trust and pixie dust. It tells you to believe in yourself. I had faith in myself for the whole year, and sometimes it actually helped me get through some parts of the year

Be Prepared

I chose this song because I need to get prepared for high school, and there seems to be some scary stuff that’s coming up next year. In this song, it had a very scary mood, but it calms down later.

I Just Can’t Wait to Be King.

I chose this song because every year, I always can’t wait for the next day, or next week, or next year. The songs has a happy mood also.

These are just a few scenarios from my favourite comedy book called Wayside School Is Falling Down, by Louis Sachar. In the book, there are lots of stupid and silly situations. Sachar tells 30 different stories, from the playground on the bottom of the school, to the top of the school. Wayside School is filled with insane students and teachers with their own unique, loving personality. Somehow, every character i somewhat stupid. You have students that bring in hobos for show and tell, to students that manage to get blinked out of existance.

Splendors and Glooms is a fantasy book written by Laura Amy Schiltz. This book takes place in London and focuses on two orphans: Lizzie Rose and Parsefall. Their master, Grisini, has been thought to be related to the disappearance of Clara Wintermute. When Lizzie found out about this, the two orphans confront him. However, Grisini started fighting, and after that, he disappeared. Things get more intense as they get invited to visit Cassandra, an evil witch who knows Grisini. She happens to possess a cursed stone that can only be broken if it is stolen by a child. She hopes that Parsefall will steal it, due to his personality. This is the main plot of the book, and it is really intense, but the fantasy aspect of it was really good.

Hello!

Another year has passed, and now I’m in 8th grade, I’m super excited for what to come! This year is my last year of middle school and I want to make it the best!

Science PBL

Today I’ve made progress in the model showing antibodies signalling the white blood cells to attack antigens. Overall I need to work on separate models explaining different parts. some obstacles I had to face is trying to make someone that requires very little or no hand operation because I think that if there is too much operation by hand the model doesn’t really do anything
