The surrealism art movement is a 20th century avant-garde movement in art and literature that sought to release the creativity potential of the unconscious mind. For each of my surrealist concepts I will include one of the same pictures to give a little theme to it. I have decided to put a spider in all of my photos and try to do something unique with it. Before I did my concepts I planned them out to show what the spider would be doing and where it would be for all of the pictures. My final surrealism photo is probably my best one because it has more things to work with and it shows a lot more detail compared to my other pictures. 

A hex triplet is a six-digit, three-byte hexadecimal number used in HTML, CSS, SVG, and other computing applications to represent colors. The bytes represent the red, green and blue components of the colorThere are several physical and practical limits to the amount of computation or data storage that can be performed.You can change an image from its original mode to a different mode. When you choose a different color mode for an image, you permanently change the color values in the image.

The relationship between technology and productivity impact digital media because it is basically the main things that make up digital media. Creating surrealist pictures without computers, digital cameras, or photoshop would be very difficult and you would probably have to plan out the picture and draw it. The end result would definitely not be as good as the end result of making a surrealist picture with technology.

The 15 day photo challenge is a fun little project that helps us learn about the different types of photo shots that you can take. The days that I was in charge of the class critique it tested me to see if I really knew what was wrong and right with the photos the class took and what could be improved with it. This exercise helped me understand what needs to be in the different types of photos and how you are supposed to take them. My photo skills have definitely improved during all 15 days we did the photo challenge.

Hiki No Building Construction

   My story topic is about the pavilions being made in the building and construction classes in our school. People will start to care when they find out how hard it was to make the pavilions and what the benefits are once they finish making them. We improved the 5 point story flow by rewatching our video around 3 times so that we know exactly what we need to improve. The tone of voiceovers did not have to be changed but put in the right places to make sense in the video. We made it so that people will actually care about the video by having a good attention grabber int he beginning and having an interesting topic. The sequencing of B-roll ended up being much better and the editing techniques and the overall message made a lot more sense then it did with the rough cut.


The Digital Millennium Copyright Act is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the world Intellectual Property Organization. Copyright infringement is Copyright infringement is the act of violating any of a copyright owner’s exclusive rights granted by the federal Copyright Act. There are three elements that must be in place in order for the infringement to occur. The copyright holder must have a valid copyright, this is the person who is allegedly infringing must have access to the copyrighted work, and the duplication of the copyrighted work must be outside the exceptions.

It is essential to gain permission to film on location because we can't just film people and not have permission since they might not want to be shown on camera or their work wouldn't want to be shown to other people that watch the video. Video release forms are used for permission and they are mandatory for professional video production because it will allow you to video people and their work if they sign the forms and they will be fine with you videoing them. The single area that our team could improve on is time management and getting certain jobs done at the right time for our project.

Practice Project

Me and my team chose the roles for each other because it just suited us the best. Everyone stayed committed to their role because it was the job that they were most comfortable with and could get it done easier. This helped the production outcome of our story because of how everyone on my team was enjoying their roles and getting their job done easier.

Safety is the number one priority during the production process because there should not be anything inappropriate during the video. This means that there should not be anything that could harm anyone in the making of the video. The main thing that people should know when it comes to dangers when making the production process is hazards,B roll, and risks should all be made sure is under control.

Interview Composition

There are three types of shots used in an Interview Composition. The host shot is when there is a narrator talking about what is going to happen in the next shots. The reporter shot is the shot that shows the person telling the story. Interview shot is the person being shown on the side of the camera screen and facing towards something else not the camera while talking about whats going on in the interview. The background of an interview shot should be composed of what the topic is about so if it is about cars there should be a car in the background. You should never shoot flat angles against a flat
surface during interviews because it will get very distracting and make the interview less appealing.

 The most important part of doing an interview is having a good angle in the shot and making the interviewee comfortable because it wouldn't match if the viewer is looking directly into the camera or if the interviewee was feeling awkward while talking during the interview. Having good audio, being a good director, or even asking follow up questions are all good but it's not as important as making the angle shot in the interview good or making sure the interviewee is comfortable and ready to be interviewed. Strategies that can make the interview good is having the interviewer be in a environment that matches with what he is going to be comfortable with.

Under The Blood Red Sun

Mr. Tim Savage is the director and Mrs. Mardi Savage the Associate Producer of the movie "Under The Blood Red Sun" which is based off the book. The thing that they do to contribute to filmmaking is that they help out with the planning and how the actors/workers are gonna do their parts. So Under The Blood Red Sun was about a Japanese American boy named Tomi, who lives with a immigrant family and it takes place in 1941. This also was taking place during the pearl harbor attack by japan. The family were suffering from tough times because most people in America would be questioning them and acting more defensive around them.

The first question that I asked was that how they came up with the title of the movie. They said that it was based off of the novel and it was a remake. My next question was if they still talk or meet with the actors or not. They said that they usually do very often and that they are like a family to them. They also said that they had a whole lot of fun making the movie and that they enjoyed working with all the actors and it was probably their best and most fun movie that they have made so far.

Public Service Announcement

The impact that a powerful PSA could have on the audience is the way they think about the topic. I think that a really good PSA will change peoples way of doing things in that certain area that the PSA is talking about. This means that people will start caring about their lifestyle and changing their way of life. The thing that I am hoping to accomplish is for people to start eating healthier by changing their lifestyle and making them realize how bad it is to have a unhealthy lifestyle. The audience should be caring about this specific issue because this has been a huge problem around the world for many years.

This Public Service Announcement will be sent to Olelo Youth Exchange which will help other people on their active lifestyle and it will encourage them to make PSA's for more people as well. They will be giving out prizes to the people will the best PSA's' so they will be able to enjoy theirselves while getting a good chance on winning a prize. The three contest rules that should not be overlooked is each entry can be submitted into no more than one category, student can submit entries in only one school division, and all entries should be submitted as MOV formatted files. This can also help by making them put a lot more effort into their PSA since they would want the prize.

My PSA changed a lot from my rough cut because made a lot more changes such as using new clips, editing, and music in my video. My team helped me find a good spot to film and they helped me come up with new ideas for my PSA. This was worth it because I had a lot more clips to work with for my PSA and I could have more time on it so that it would have 30 seconds of clips. The best compliment that my team received was when someone said that my PSA looked a lot more different and better than my rough cut and that it was really good and made them well informed after watching the PSA.
