Hey everyone! This week’s blog topic is good to great. Mr. M says this a lot in class whether it’s corrections on a video or when we have to start making progress on something. I feel like the saying good to great is something that i’m really going to remember. So here is my good to great blog.
So first what good to great means to me means that you get better by doing your best and improving through your mistakes. I can definitely use this in the third quarter with starting to announce on the announcements. This last week i’ve announced and what I can say is it is not as easy as it seems. Whether it is printing the scripts or knowing all the words so you can flow through the scripts with ease. How I go from good to great through announcing is practicing around the person i’m going to announce with who is Taylor N. They can help you go from good to great is getting used to announcing or writing scripts so I can be a pro.
Another way that I can go from good to great this quarter is to work on getting comfortable being in front of a camera. I would be doing a vlog right now but i’m behind my laptop typing away another blog because standing in front a camera literally terrifies me. When I put my first vlog I was really terrified to put it out because I don’t like being in front of the camera being in the back is just fine. This quarter I can go from good to great with being in front of the camera and not to be afraid.
The last thing that I want to go from good to great this quarter is to write scripts. Whether it is either radio, video, or announcements scripts I need some improvements. Getting them to be the best they can will be my great and i will try to go even beyond that. Where I am now is probably at pretty good and i’m striving to be great.
So that’s all for this week! I’m really looking to what this quarter brings!
Hey everyone this week’s assigned blog topic is announcements. Now we have taken over the whole CKTV Morning announcements we are announcing now! I am announcing next week and I am nervous yet excited! I have even worked during our first week of announcements so I know what to do when I announce. I agree with Mr. M when he says we are some ways from “We got this!” because there are definitely things that could change to make it better. So here are a few things that we can maybe do to improve.
So the first thing that we can do is to maybe have the announcers at the library a little bit before 7:15 to have the scripts printed and ready to go earlier. Maybe if they have another announcement they can get it printed earlier and they can get in the room faster. So even if the control room is not ready they can read it through again. So, they are more familiar with the script so they can just flow through it during practices and when we go live.
The next thing that we can do to make it great is to always have someone else in the class to check your script to see if it’s okay. I feel like if someone else checks it they might have an idea of what to change. It could be like changing up a part of the script that could be more creative. Or there might be a mistake in the script or an announcement that they might have missed and without that you might have missed something and made a mistake.
The last thing that we could do is to have a practice together to make sure that we know how to pronounce certain words and if we are enthusiastic enough. When I watched the announcements some people looked like they were literally dead. With other people around they might have advice for you and it will feel more natural.
So that’s all for this week! Hope you have a great day.
Hey everyone for this week’s free blog I will be talking about a Casey Neistat video where he reviews a Phantom 4 drone. I think the things that it can do is incredible. He explains a lot of it in the end. His footage that he got was simply breathtaking of the beach and even the test run. So here's the video.
After watching the video I was amazed to see what a drone can do. I loved seeing the breathtaking views of the shores in South Africa. This one of my favorite videos because of all the amazing drone shots and I hope it’s one of yours to. That’s all for this week’s free blog. Bye!
Hey everyone hope you had an amazing holiday season! This week’s assigned blog topic is third quarter goals. Along with this I will be checking if I actually kept my goals from last quarter. So here it is!
So first off I will see if I actually kept my goals. Looking at my first goal which was to have both of my blogs up by Thursday. As hard as I have tried I have failed this goal because of all the extra makeup free blogs for the weeks that I have forgot. With the failure I want to have blogs up by a certain time but not that early. With all the other things happening around me like psas, STN, and morning announcements blogs may in the middle of my to do list. But, I want to move it up a little bit. My new revised goal is to have blogs up by no later than Friday because I feel like I will have a lot of time in between things to do blogs.
My second goal from last quarter was to improve on editing and recording audio. On this goal I would say I have improved but, i’m am not a master at it. With having to record inside scoops or recording voiceovers I have definitely improved with audio. Even though I do not control the whole process I watch either my partner or someone else set it up so now I feel like i have improved. So my goal now is to improve on video editing. The process on final cut pro in the beginning really confused me but now I know the basics. In this next quarter I really want to see all the tips and tricks of final cut pro.
My last goal from the last quarter was to improve on shooting and editing interviews. In the first quarter a lot of us newbies made a mistake and it was putting in the spelling of the person's name while they were spelling it. It was a really bad mistake but I know now not to make that same mistake. The shooting part of the interview I think I really have improved with making the shot really clean. Now my last goal for quarter three is not improve on shooting and editing interviews it is to now become better at shooting and adding in broll. The reason I chose this goal is when we go STN i’m part of spot feature. Even though I don’t edit I can work on that when I can and I hope I improve sequencing along with that.
So that’s all for this week’s assigned blog. I am really hopeful that I will be able to go through with these goals. Hope you have a great day!
