Q2: ACO 5.0 - Visual Statement

Our topic is about, "Body Shaming." The message about our short film is about how in our society people are body shaming others for being skinny, fat or just not having the body that everyone else has. The reason why its import to know this stuff is because some people body shame themselves because they hear others saying rude things about them or to them saying to gain some weight because they are to skinny or to stop eating because they are getting to fat. It makes teens our age or even younger/older people feel shame for their bodies. What are project involves mainly about is how to stop body shaming or to prevent it by loving your body for how it is. The requirements for the short film were to get people to understand what is happening to others who feel like they aren't good looking or pretty but yourself can stop that from happening by saying one thing you like about yourself like your hair, eyes, lips and ect. The people I worked with to make the film possible were Heiilei and Kiara. Kiara had the role as the lead film director while Heiilei was helping with film ideas with a little editing on the side. How they contributed to the production of our visual statement is the way everything looks, sounds and how it would look being presented to others.

The Final Cut Pro editing tips and tricks my team has learned through this film is how to communicate with others on our team to be on time and work together when one of our partners are gone. Why it was important to use the FCPX Libraries is because we could use it in some future projects or videos. It would be very helpful even just from a simple short-film. Why audio levels in different clips can vary drastically and how to correctly balance what your audience will hear is so they can hear every thing clearly and not just mumbles. The part in our video I think displays higher quality was the audio when I was talking because I was a little to loud and felt like I was yelling into the mic.

Finally, to describe our biggest challenges during this project was that most of use weren't there to help except Kiara, she kept on tasks and came to school every day. We didn't get good god film in the last few seconds because we had the same film twice and not a good shot of a couple sense to show us on the computer being positive of what that person would look good in. We could've helped overcome that by doing the audio first then the video shot ideas last along with the editing. The group dynamic was split into our own groups of work like editing, music, film, writing and voice overs. The driving force toward attaining the project goal and how the other people in the group helped was that Kiara was the most detected to finishing on a good note and some what of a good short film on being body positive, she also helped me with film ideas and script writing making it turn out more high quality along with her editing skills. The most enjoyable part of the project was going out and filming. Why agree

Q2: ACO 1.0 - Modern Art Movement

The cultural movement gave rise to the art style in my presentation was Kinetic Art. The influence that our artist movement has on the arts and communication industry is how we use it today for decoration like wind-chimes, baby mobiles, chandeliers, ect. You can see it everywhere in your home, stores, school and the most common in a art museum. Art influences society by changing opinions, instilling values and translating experiences across space and time. Research has shown art affects the fundamental sense of self. Painting, sculpture, music, literature and the other arts are often considered to be the repository of a society's collective memory such as David Cerny. Describing my personal thoughts about this art movement is that art movement is a tendency or style in art with a specific common philosophy or goal, followed by a group of artists during a restricted period of time, (usually a few months, years or decades) or, at least, with the heyday of the movement defined within a number of years.

The artist I chose was Bridget Riley, who  created the art piece "Blaze." What it meant was that even if it looked difficult was its super simple and easy just like how most people use black and white in their picture or drawings because its more simple but it still looks good. Yes, I think a single artist can persuade someone's opinion just from the art work they see or what someone would say. Sometimes what people see or hear makes them realize small things in others art work that could change their way of thinking or even change that person. In my opinion, art has advanced in technology aided and hindered the cultural impact of skilled art production by how we use thinks today from Bridget Riley art piece 'The Blaze" we use it in our homes, schools and in the most places you never expect. I find it in a way entertaining to see works of art like statues, paintings and models.

ACO 7.0 - Workplace Safety Video

The project goal was to make a topic about How to Avoid A Hostile Environment. My teammates are great and wonderful people to work with and everyone did their own job for the group. Keio and I did the editing and writing out the script while Joshua Keale-Ho did the recording on his phone along with Shylee in a few shots helping us make our video better. I think Keio deserve the special recognition because I wasn't here when they were recording and we couldn't record any audio or music so it's just a blank mute video and no one will now what anyone is saying or what it's about. It would have gone better if we all kept track of each others time and work.

Keio Wakuta helped us the most by showing how and when to use the video. My biggest take away was that we never finished our audio and we should just taken the bad audio instead of leaving it blank with no audio. We should have had more communication towards each other, work on production and better timing on work. The votes on our video was reasonable and understanding because we had nothing to give and we should have worked on the audio. The conflict of this project was the audio, editing and voice over(we didn't get any work done.) What could have been done to make the audio better was to work more on the audio than thinking good audio.

ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

Coding skills are important because it's the same as making a game, you need the right technology and coding for the game work. Coding can also be found in computers, internet, apps and many more that we use in our daily life. The challenge for the coding would be to see if it operates well in different conditions for the item to work. Like how a computer would work in the sun, rain, wind and sand. People have to make sure how the product would work and able to sell on the market and show more work of their  business to the world to sell products. The first challenge about the logic statement I will use to tackle it is to figure out the coding, making sure to use correct grammar when it comes to coding the Altino and maybe finding out the easter egg in the Altino car. How I feel about working through the process of trial and error is exciting and nervous because I want to see and use the Altino cars to try some coding to see how it would react to the speed, sounds and movement of the coding.

The new commands that were required to successfully complete Challenge #2 were to make it go forward, stop for a few seconds and go back to the start while making siren sounds. I would probably never use a autonomous vehicle to give me a ride because there is a river path. If I was in the car and theres people not paying attention to traffic on the drivers side with a kid and on the opposite side is a solid road stopper or brick wall would the autonomous car choose to save me or the kid? I think people would still use the autonomous car in the future because everyone is all about the new and cool technology like phones, cars, computers and ect. If we had to use them for an emergency like ambulance or accidents that need a fire truck or fire truck it would (maybe) cause more accidents and maybe hurt someone because they will have to go at a certain speed to get to the person who is hurt without injuring anyone on the way there.

ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

The element I used for my line art was Value. How I used the element was for my like art and sketching the shade in the line art. How I specifically used each element was by using the information that I know and have in my portfolio. It helped me better understand how to do the line art and sketch out what I'm supposed to do. The relationship between the size of your brush and controlling the value scale of my image is how it would turn out. It has to be equal with the lines, skills, artwork and brush. My favorite part of the digital process that I found more enjoyable was the line art and drawing over the image because honestly I enjoy anything having to deal with art and digital art. what I found most difficult was the portrait line art because it was the most challenging for me and I got lost a few times.

The landscape was taken at Washington Oregon on my way to a snowboard down black diamond peek. The similarity between the still image and the landscape photo is the the color, fame and sketch. I stayed with the more basic beginning tutorial because it was easier to follow along but I was able to follow along with the refine image. I did a few things wrong because it didn't turn out how it should have. How my technique turned out wasn't as bad as I thought it would have turned out. It looked some what close to a sketch of a drawing and I'm able to make out the picture. I do agree with the critique results because I could of done better and more thought into the picture taking and design.

The portrait photo that I used was of a woman work in the shop making jewelry. It was taken at my Papas downstairs work space for making ukuleles, jewelry and guitars. The portrait of the woman working in the shop and It means a lot to me because its my mom and I wanted to make something involving her. The final use of all the Elements of Art is still sketch, formate and shade. I think I could of done better with the picture if it wasn't so blurry or out of frame. I could of also used a picture of my mom that wasn't old, out of focus like I said before. I could of used more time to shade but I payed to much attention to the dress and lips.

The critique results that I got in returned and voted on, I do agree with how I'm mostly a amateur but from the one person who voted that I was an expert for the still life. I can see why they voted because it was the one picture I put work into and most of my time on. I also still agree with how I'm a amateur because I didn't put much thought into the last two pictures except the still life photo of the pancakes. I should of had been more strategic with the landscape and portrait outline. I could of picked a better picture for the landscape because it didn't fit so well with the sizing or colors. The portrait was lazily done and unfinished. It wasn't shaded, even or displayed nicely.

ACO 5.0 - Audio Production

The intonation and reflection can be used to maintain the interest of your audience by their voice, how they talk just like how people talk in movies, on tv, radio and even when you are talking to your classmates to get their attention. You have to show intreats in what the are saying or doing to get the attention from their audience. How I describing my role in this assignment is that I was the technician (because I missed a day from school when I was suppose to be vocal talent.) My job as the vocal talent was that I had to edit the recording and add spaces to where I thought it needed and add audio to the recording of the project. The rehearsal was really important because we had to get the roles right for what we were gonna say and when to talk, are script was fine too. If I had to be honest we could of been better at how we talked. Like speaking more clearly and showing more interest in the subject we are talking about but for the first time recording audio we did okay.

My team meet half of the project goal because I wasn't there to help, it sounded kinda unfinished, there wasn't much expression in the recording of the voices and last, it felt like it was missing a lot of sounds that aren't in the recording that we could of added in like sound effects, more expression into the script. In my opinion I disagree with the score because i feel like it needs more work on the vocal cords, planing, and still more sounds affects. The audience wasn't really engaged in the recording because it sounds kinda boring and like I said before its sounds like its not finished. The obstacle that we faced that was the hardest was how unfinished and last second we were, how we recorded, and how we (they) sounded. We overcame the problem by just getting it done and doing the best we could. I would like to try a different group to work with to see how I could work with them and see how different I would work, talk or my ideas in the group.
