The topic or title we were given was; "The Worst Vacation Ever". The location of the vacation would be in Hawaii, obviously. We thought that we would have these group of people that go to Hawaii, and their vacation would be the opposite of what they expect, a wreck. The beginning shots is of them excited, packing, and talking about their expectations of a beautiful tropical hotel, flowers, and Hula Dancers. I guess you could say it was a bit like that Nickelodeon Movie, Jinks; so we have bad luck. Then when they actually arrive to Hawaii, they were really disappointed as they discover that there is no tropical hotel and no hula dancers. Then I got allergic to the flowers; I started to sneeze and itch myself. Taylynn fell in the sand and Brooke got her shoes soaked, attempting to grab a shell. Ben M. and Ysabel got sunburned, really, REALLY bad. And in the end, it was officially the worst vacation ever.
Bringing Props absolutely helped. We used sunglasses, tourist stuff, extra clothes, and make-up. I brought sunglasses and Ysabel and Ben M. used it with Brooke's makeup. I think when we all contributed props and used it together, it makes a good connection. Brooke and Taylynn put makeup on me to show my itchiness and they also put it on Ysabel and Ben to show sunburn. I think holding the practice at the Marriott also had an effect in our video. The Marriott had various locations to film at, we were even allowed to go to the beach!
I think we improved in cooperating and contributing ideas as a team. We all had a part, Micah was filmer, Brooke was Director and Actress, and everyone else had a part acting. Because we all contributed ideas and cooperated, we were all able to settle and agree on a one idea. I think that our video turned out better than our past videos is because we had a strong idea, we stuck to it, and we cooperated. I think this was definitely a big improvement in the movie trailer team.
Some things that the Movie Trailer work on is to keep your acting character. What I mean by this is how you continue on something onto the next scene. For example, how I was allergic to the flowers and I was sneezing, I should continuously sneeze and itch my skin. Just like how Ben kept bringing up the Hula Dancers and how he was so excited about it. Another thing we could work on is to finish filming by the production deadline so that the editors have more time to edit the video.
Overall, the practice went out great. Every group did awesome and improved well, Good Job guys! The Movie Trailer improved, so awesome job to you folks on the Movie Trailer Team! We all cooperated and contributed to the video, and it was really fun getting to film at the Beach with you guys! Anyways, I hope we all are ready for STN! Honestly, I do think that we should do another STN Practice because every team has something they could work on and it's just good to get practice before we go to STN! Good to Great! Bye (And Yes, I am currently in sweet sixteen practice (; ). Byee Guys!!
