Hey everyone! This week’s blog topic is Family Night Videos! At the end of every school year we have a family night where we present our best videos of the year to our families. The video I am choosing to show is my STN edit for this year’s STN Trip. Here is why I want to show this video at family night.
The first reason why I want to show this video is because the new people coming into our class next year will be attending the family night. The new people entering the class will not know what STN is so I am hoping it gives them a little taste of what STN is. I have clips in my edit of the Boston, our adventures in Nashville, and the parts of STN. When I went to STN for the first time it was nothing like I expected. Showing a short recap of STN will kind of give an idea of what the trip is like.
Another reason why I want to show my edit at Family Night is to show that our class is like one big family. In my edit I have videos of us talking or just hanging out and laughing. I feel like I really bonded with my classmates and you can see it in the edit. We are really a family and I am really sad to see the eighth graders go so I want to honor them in a way in my edit. They have honestly taught me so much from writing scripts to editing videos. But I am also excited to get new students in the class next year.
The last reason why I want to show my edit at Family Night is because I had so much fun finding and editing the clips. I loved choosing the photos and videos and remembering all the memories we had on the trip. I also think that it’s going to bring back the good memories we had during the trip. I loved getting to find the different clips and editing it to music that I am using.
That is why I want to show my STN edit at Family Night. I can’t wait to show everyone the finished product.
Hey everyone! Our media just came back from a 13 day long trip in Nashville, Tennessee and Boston, Massachusetts. This media trip was so so amazing getting to learn so much about the places we went to and of course various media topics. Here are highlights of the 2018 STN trip.
My first highlight is winning first in the Crazy 8’s News Magazine competition. In this competition we are given 8 hours to shoot and edit together a news magazine which is kind of like news magazine. Our topic this year was rock this town. I felt I was given a big responsibility because I got to edit together the final product. On the News Magazine team there was Ty, Evan, Haley, Shayne, Halea, Natalie, Janine, and me. I felt like since we are all seventh graders we worked together really well. Along with editing the final product I got to make a short news story too. I was partners with ty and we did our story on a tileworks place. I know what you’re thinking, what does a tile place have to do with rocking the town. Well we figured since the tiles are like rocks the tiles literally rock the town. This year’s Crazy 8’s is an experience I will never forget.
My second highlight is getting to go on this trip with such amazing, hilarious, wonderful people. Not only are the people in this class great at media work they are funny and fun to be around. I remember so many times where I couldn’t stop laughing so hard. I feel like this year since the class is smaller it is easier to bond. I felt like I got to know each person over the 13 days. Getting to go somewhere totally different from Hawaii like Boston was cool because we got to experience so many different new things together. Everyone on the trip students and chaperones are so amazing.
My third and final highlight of the 2018 STN trip is getting to see snow. One night on the trip in Boston it started to snow very lightly and everyone ran out in the cold with just their pajamas on. That was only the tip of the iceberg. The following morning everyone was super excited to go and play in the freshly fallen snow. We had so much snowball fights as well as many, many snowmen. We were so siked we went out in the snow twice that day. Since we live in a more tropical area it was a fun, rare day I got to spend with my classmates
So those are my highlights of this year’s STN trip! I am so grateful for the trip and I can’t wait for next year’s STN!
