Quarantine is a new experience. I enjoy my alone time, but I'd never thought I wouldn't be able to go outside or do normal activities such going shopping. I hate sitting around doing nothing, so I knew I needed to find something to do. I watched my friends making TikToks all the time, but I never thought I could until my little cousin started teaching me how to do the dances and use the app. After, she taught me how to use the app I became a bit obsessed and now I make lots of TikToks. This video showcases some of my favorite Tiktok challanges that I've tried during quarantine. Please enjoy and stay safe :)
This project was very fun! I love to write, but I also enjoy filming and editing. I used a storyboard to organize my ideas. I didn't want a basic story. I really wanted a story that was easy to follow, but I wanted my story to have a good plot and conflict. It took me about 20 minutes to film this very short film because I had to find the perfect lighting, setting and angle for each clip. This 6-shot sequence is called "The Book." Two girls fight over a book in the library and things take a turn very fast. You will have to watch the film to find out how this story plays out! To watch my film click here. Enjoy :)
The TV Studio was exciting! I enjoyed being able to learn almost every job. I will discuss 6 jobs I did while in the TV studio. My first job was at Computer Graphics. The CG Monitor records the production. My job was to press the red button and say "recording" as the director instructed. I didn't enjoy this job much because there was only one button to press. After pressing the record button I sat and watched. I prefer to have a more active role although recording the production is important. My second job was as the floor director. As floor director, I constructed everyone in the tv studio under the direction of the director from the control room. I conducted soundchecks, monitored all cameras and cued talents under the director's instruction. I enjoyed being the floor director because I enjoying being in control and guiding everyone. My third job was on Camera 3. Camera 3 is pointed toward Talents 1 and 2. I had to focus the shot, center the camera at the right angle and monitor the teleprompter. I didn't enjoy this job much because it was frustrating to keep the black curtain out the way and there wasn't much to do after fixing the shot. My fourth job was as Talent 2. As Talent 2, I had to read from the teleprompter. This was extremely fun because I loved reading off the teleprompter and being on camera. It was easy to follow along the script, but I often forgot to smile and sometimes had an unpleasant facial expression. My fifth job was at the Teleprompter. I had to control the speed of the teleprompter for all 3 talents. This job was difficult and did not enjoy it. I had to keep to arrow on track however every talent spoke at a different speed. My sixth and final job was director which was fun. I got to monitor all the actions by cueing aja, listening to audio, watching camera shots, cueing talents and monitoring all other jobs. This job was fun because I was able to give commands and be in charge! Look below to see an awesome slideshow of my experience!
This project is dedicated to myself, my dreams, hobbies and accomplishments. This project is also dedicated to my family and friends who have crafted and influenced my life. In 2 minutes, I show the most important parts of who I am now and who i'm becoming. While creating this video, I was reminded how good my life is.
This was an easy and fast project. I wish I could've had more creative freedom with song choice and length.
I truly hope this video puts a smile on your face because watching it put a smile on mine!
