Movement Videos

Shh, It's a secret had a very nice video with the effects and the filmer did a good job keeping steady while Bryce was dancing. I really liked how they didn't just use a pre-made song.
For The Flintstones, I really liked theirs because you could feel the motion in the stop motion images. Their is original with their talent.
The Void was really great because they showed their musical talent and also showed motion in an abstract way. I think that their editing was also very good to show different parts of the clips. They had wonderful lighting in the clips. The only thing I disliked was that the music sounded kind of boring.
Move Crew could've done a lot better with filming. When they were filming in the hallway, it wasn't steady and in one shot the camera handle was in the way. Another improvement they should've made was to memorize the quotes because them reading off the paper was very distracting and not very professional. I did like a lot of the editing though when it went in reverse because it gave a tranquil like effect.
I really like Cherry Bomb because they had a lot of random shots that were comical and caught people's attention. Their editing was great but the only bad thing is that you couldn't really hear them when they were acting.
Crazy Hair showed many examples of movement and their filming was great.
Motion Hands was excellent and really kept the attention because the music and mood were different

Movement Class

In movement, we learned how to dance to a certain segment of movements at a certain beat. If out didn't follow instructions or talked with our language we would get sent to Siberia or become and ostrich. We had to really use our entire bodies to speak. We use movement to speak instead of words. It taught us discipline and how to really listen to the leader and listen to the beat. It tested our memor as well. I overall didn't enjoy it because it was too fast in the beginning, but I began to enjoy it later.

RIP Steve Jobs

RIP Steve Jobs. I have a freaking eMac, not an iMac, but eMac in my room. I've owned the first color Apple laptops, a MacBook and MacBook Pro. Ever since I was young I wanted to own an iPod,  so I got an iPod nano. I've had 3 iPod Touches. Apple is the main thing that I've grown up on ever since I was a little kid, I don't think that there will ever be another person as revolutionary to impact our society as much as he did. For a college drop out I think that he is really amazing. His loss has touched many hearts. Thank you Steve Jobs and your copartner Steve Wozniak.

Nu Works

In my Nu Works class at BTWHSPVA, we learned about Paul Baker who is the inspiration for my school's arts magnet. Paul Baker was a teacher and he funded many projects that support the arts.
In Nu Works, we learn how to act like true Booker T. kids. Still Freshman, we act immature but by the time we are seniors, we will have this whole work ethic down. Hopefully we will learn even more this year and create amazing art.
