One goal I have for the second STN practice is to check and playback our shots. At the first practice, we didn't really check our equipment thoroughly, which resulted in our microphones not working, and us not knowing. We shot a whole bunch of footage, but when it was time to edit, we didn't have any audio with it. This was a problem because it really limited what we could do with the footage, leading to compromises. Not only should we be playing back our footage to check the audio, but we should also check that each shot is focused, on the correct white balance, and stable. One goal I have for the STN practice is to make sure we take good shots.
Another goal I have for the second STN practice is to test out different styles. In talking to Mr. M today with Kaycee, he made us realize that up at STN we shouldn't be shooting the whole thing. Instead, tell the story with the important moments of STN. There are many ways you can go about in telling this story. Last practice, since we did not have audio, we were confined to a certain style. However this practice, maybe we could try something different. Maybe use interviews? There are so many creative ways we could create this recap, and I think it'll be really fun in exploring each way and finding out which one works best for us. The second goal I have for the second STN practice is to test out different styles.
The third goal I have for the second STN practice is to focus on the practice, not the convention. Last practice, we made the recap as if we were at the convention, instead of the practice. However, we should be treating the practice as a practice. So during the practice tomorrow, we should be reminding ourselves and thinking of how we could go about doing this. We should think of ways to show the teams progress and how we could document that and put it in our recap video. It'll be interesting how we will do this, but I think it's great to have a challenge. My third goal I have for the second STN practice is to focus on the practice, not the convention.
With STN coming around the corner, practicing for it is very important. It is the only way we can improve and get better. For tomorrow's second STN practice, three goals I have set are to check and playback the footage, try out different styles, and focus the video about the practice, not the convention. Well, that is it for this week's constructed response! Thanks for reading! Bye!
