Music Video Finale

Hey Vsauce Michel here. So my team consist of myself, Micah Miller, and Linden Johns. The song we choose was Push It To The Limit by Paul Engemann. The reason we choose this song is because we put all our songs we choose into our plan document and we voted on which one we wanted. Our vote ended with Push It To The Limit being our choice.

Push it to the limit
Walk along the razor's edge
But don't look down, just keep your head
Or you'll be finished
Open up the limit
Past the point of no return
You've reached the top but still you gotta learn
How to keep it
Hit the wheel and double the stakes
Throttle wide open like a bat out of hell
You crash the gates (Crash the gates)
Going for the back of beyond
Nothing gonna stop you, there's nothing that strong
So close now you're nearly at the brink
So, push it, ooh yeah
Welcome to the limit (Limit)
Take it baby one step more
The power game's still playing so
You better win it
Push it to the limit (Limit)
No one left to stand in your way
You might get careless, but you'll never be safe
While you're still in it
Welcome to the limit (Limit)
Standing on the razor's edge
Don't look down just keep your head
Or you'll be finished
Welcome to the limit
Push it to the limit - Paul Engemann

So my teams storyline is pretty simple. The storyline is a super hero is trying to save people but he's not saving enough people. This makes him distraught and he decides to go get some equipment to train then we see him training. After he goes his rival the anti-(anti)-agonist's lair and we find out that the super hero did save enough people cause the anti-(anti)-agonist was disguised as the person who showed him the clipboard saying he needs to save more people. So he has a showdown with the anti-(anti)-agonist and he wins and walks off into the sun set. This relates to our song because it talks about reaching a metaphorical limit and pushing past it.

I think it shows our best work through the shot types, and edits. I think our shots and scenes are very well made and show a lot of quality shots. I also think are edits so far are quite good and I think that after our rough cut they will get better. I do think that our movie trailer project will be better than this project because we had more room to do interesting things in it. We also could make the shots better since we weren't rushing as much as we were this time.

Movie Trailer Primier

Allo blazers Jason here. So our project is a movie trailer and my team consists of Me, Cephas, Micah, and Linden. Are movie trailer's about a guy called only The survivor who is lost on a deserted island with amnesia, the clothes on his back and a pair of glasses that allow him to see shadow people who inhabit the island. In our Movie Trailer plan document I helped with the 4ps.

Are biggest challenge has been communication. The reason I think this is are biggest challenge is because we have scheduled meetings on the same day as the meeting or a little bit before. I think our biggest success has been having a lot of the scenes done. The reason that we have so many done is because when we do meet up we got a lot of them done. So those are the biggest challenges and successes.

I think we really earned the results we got for the critique. For the critique we got a lot of above and beyonds. I think we deserved these cause we worked very hard on our project and the finished product is very good. We also tied in first place for the best overall movie trailer vote. What i have learned through this project is ways to edit a video together to give the audience a sense of fear while watching.

Metamorphosis Animation

Hello interwebs welcome to game theoryizings. The goal is to make a animation of metamorphosis. The metamorphosis of the character(s) in the animation. The animation style we'll be using is photoshop and stop motion. So that is are goal and animation styles.

Ok our focus statement is that an egg is looking for adventure. The plot is that an egg wants to seek adventure but doesn't until a rain washes it out of it's nest into a river and it turns into a boat then it sails for a while till it hits and island and turns into a bird. The it goes to have and adventure and flies off. In the first scene it has the egg being pushed out of it's tree the next scene has him turning into a boat the third scene has him being caught in a rapid and hitting the island. The fourth scene has him hitting a bunch of rocks and the boat getting destroyed and him turning into a bird and the fifth scene has him exploring the land.

Finally I will be talking about our animations results. I agree with the results of our animation for clarity understanding and message we got a 2.5 I think it is a deserved it because it was a little unclear what the message was. For character props and background we got a 3.9 I agree with this because I feel our character and backgrounds were well made and easy to understand. Next for creativity originality and execution we got a 3.7 I think it was deserved since I found that it was very original as story's go and our execution was well done. Finally our overall animation score was 3.4 I find that fair since with all of these point put together it averages to that score.

Geometric Portraits

Hey what's up guys scarce here with another single upload. In this paragraph I will tell you if I think facial expressions universal. I think facial expressions are universal because if you see someone smiling, frowning, or doing any other facial expression you'll understand how they feel. There are differences between cultures to a certain extent but most expressions are universal. So that's my opinion on facial expressions.

Now I'll explain to you how I created this project step by step. Firstly you need to find a picture of a persons face. Then you crop so it's just the head make a new layer put a background colour in. Next you need to outline it in red using the line tool then make triangle outlines for your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hair, and skin. The you need to use the polygonal Lassen tool and use the triangles as a guide the shapes you make the go into filter and select average. Once you do it all flip the left side to the right and you're done. So that's a step by step guide on how to do the project and here's a link to a video that also explains the project.

Now let me tell you the differences between the easier way using this website and using photoshop. The website and photoshop are very different from each other the only really smiler thing is how they both need a photo to do anything. The differences on the other hand are very abundant for one photoshop isn't only for one specific type of thing like the website. Another difference is that the website is just a filter and not like real low poly images. Now I'll tell you about the differences between poly 1 and poly 2. In poly one it's me and in poly 2 it's my mom in it. In poly one we used an outline to do it but in poly to we didn't. In poly 1 we averaged it but in poly 2 we picked a colour using the eye drop tool. Also in poly 2 i don't have a background because i was gone and had to finish it without it. So these are the differences between the easy way poly 1 and poly 2. P.S Is it just me or does my poly three look like a vaporwave album to an extent.

Verbal Landscape

HEY WHAT'S UP GUYS COMADY SHORTS GAMER HERE. Now I'll describe different ways nature impacts my life. Nature impacts my life because I live in nature in multiple ways. The houses you live in are made from nature and the houses are built on nature and around nature. So that's how nature impacts my life.

Now I'll explain how Timelapses and slow-mos are made. Timelapses are made by having a camera record the same area for a most often extended time and then speeding it up. A slow-mo is made by recording something per-say a rock falling then. The editing it and slowing it down the video. So that's how Timelapses and slow-mos are made.

Now I'll tell you what I feel the hardest part and my favorite part of this project is. Firstly I'll tell you the hardest I feel the hardest part was making and getting the poem approved. I feel this since you had to make it like the style you want while canvasing your message. Now I'll tell you my favorite part. For me my favorite part is the editing the project. I like editing it because it's fun to see what features you can do and see whats possible to do.

Now I'll tell you my critique reflections. I agree with the two I was given because I feel that I could do better and that if I did I would of gotten a three. Another reason I agree with these results is that my videos sound and videos are lackluster the sound isn't that good. Also the video is kind of grayer duller colours. So that's my critique reflections.

Poetic Personal Statement

Hello Drama alert nation I'm your host Killer Keemstar let's get roight into the blog post. In this paragraph I will talk about what i think poetry is and what it's used for. I think poetry is just basically another type of writing. The only reason it's considered a more special thing is because it is used as a heart to hear a lot of the time. So that's what I think of poetry and what it's used for.

Now I will write a poetic statement.

Determination to reach the end of the tunnel even with all the road blocks in my way
Trying to not stray off the pathway to my destination
In a negotiation with my self about personal goals about
My personal roads I must travel
The only thing to consider must they be traveled

That was my poetic statement.

Now I'll describe how I used rhythm or rhyme. I think I used rhythm well it has a sort of beat in it. I think my use of rhyme is a bit off but works alright. The reason I say that is because I don't have the end words being the ones that rhyme instead I made the rhymes when I felt it would be nice. So that's how I used rhythm and rhyme.
