The first reason why I'd like to be in movie trailer is because I was in it last year. As a sixth grader, I joined the movie trailer competition so I know what it's like and I have experience in it. I know how to create a movie trailer and what it takes. Also, being that I was in it last year, I can take the mistakes we made and improve on them this round. I would be able to take my experience and give the new team advice on what I learned. An important part of making a movie trailer is using your time wisely. Last year, we didn't and our filming ended up sloppy. This means we need to get a solid idea, and stick with it. In my opinion, that's the hardest about creating a movie trailer; finding a solid idea to base it around. To have a solid idea, we need to be creative and original, but also realistic. However, since it would be a 4 person team, we could put our brains together and find out an idea to stick with. So one reason why I'm interested in being in movie trailer is because I can use the experience from last year to help this year.
Another reason why I'd like to be in movie trailer is because I could film and edit. I'm not really one to act, because I'm better behind the camera. If I would to be in movie trailer, I'd really like to be the camera person because I think it would be best for the team. I know how to get different angles and sequences. I would make sure that every shot is in focus, steady, and worthwhile. I would also use the iMovie story structure layout to help us make a good movie trailer. If I'm in movie trailer, I could also help in editing. I'd say that I'm really good with Final Cut, so editing wouldn't be a problem. I can also edit quickly but also with quality. I've watched most of the tutorial videos and have memorized the shortcuts and tricks so we wouldn't waste time. Another cool thing about making a movie trailer is when you edit it. Movie trailers want to hook you and catch your eye, right? Well, it would be fun to add on special effects to the shots! I've explored FCP X, and there is a bunch of effects that could help in a movie trailer. There are audio effects like distortion or disguised where you would use if you'd make an anonymous call or something spooky. There are also video effects which are like filters like Black and White where you could use if you're doing a flash back or something in the past. I'd like to be in movie trailer because It would be fun to film and edit.
The last reason why I'd like to be in movie trailer is because I can work well with others. In any competition, you need good teamwork or else nothing will get done or done well. I just have to have an open mind and a positive attitude. This means everyone should all agree on something before anyone does anything rational, it is a TEAM. This means doing what's best for the team and what will help. Movie trailer is a fun competition, but only if everyone works together and doesn't argue.
In conclusion, I'd like to be on the movie trailer team because I was in it last year, I could film and edit, and because I can work well with others. STN is a great convention to learn and connect with others with the same interests (and so is this class), so thank you for this opportunity to attend! I'm really excited for STN 2015! Well, that's it for my constructed response! Make sure you read this week's reflected response, "A Story's Structure". Thanks for reading! Bye!
