Video 2 Project update

imgres-17This week I completed my storyboard for my news package. It is not the conventional news package that Ms. Shaw usually approves and misses some of the guidelines listed, but I was able to convince her to agree to my idea. My idea, without giving to much away, is about a U.F.O sighting and aliens. I’m very glad she accepted the idea and I’m sure I will kill it and do a great job as I always do. I will also have fun doing this as I do with every project.

Weekly Update: Madison Allen

This week I have finished up editing on my stop motion video “War of Deliciousness” which came out great. It is a stop motion video using gummy bears. The video tells a story of gummy bear hatred and how it ultimately led to the murder of many young bears. It was a pain in the butt to make but it came out better then I thought it would. I like stop motion but it’s not that easy to make.

This weekend I plan to think about think about other projects I should do and what I should do for them. Maybe a zombie flick for my final or for my trailer. I am also still waiting for an email from Jason, whom I hope to do my documentary on. He knows a unique form of martial arts and I think it would be amazing to record.

Weekly Update 2

So, it’s already been another week and it’s time for another weekly update. So this past week a friend and I finally got around to filming  my action sequence. It looked pretty good and everything was running smoothly until…. The battery died and I didn’t bring a charger.

We lost some of our filming because we save it directly to the computer and when the camera died we didn’t get the film. It’s a little bit of a bummer, but we can just redo the shots and continue from there. Well it looks like this is it for this week!IMG_0550

the weekly update

This week , Sebastion, Conrad, and I started filming our news package for Relay for life.  We got a little bit done, but still have a lot to do, I’m going to see about getting footage from Rosie at the Grade school, and getting pictures from Mrs.Cook.  American_Cancer_Society_Relay_For_Life

Weekly update, by: Jamie Banta

I have finished coming up with my idea for my news package, it will be based on Relay For Life, and I’ll probably film it on Thursday.  My ideas for it are to describe what Relay For Life is about, and what we do at the event.  Such as we get 15 hours of community service, we raise money for Cancer, you can get free icecream, etc.  I will be doing the project with someone and we will have a couple other people to be in the video.    The photo below shows some of my Celtx script.

My Weekly Status Update

So, I’ve been planning an action sequence with a medieval theme with an assassin and a guard brawling. I’m planning on expanding off of this and attempting to create a movie. Though I just need the time to film this piece. The fighting scenes will all take place in the woods where there is cover, scenery and it has a good medieval theme in my opinion.

Progress report!

I am planning on making a paper air plane dogfight for my next piece. It’s my action sequence. I am also planning on my trailer.  I’m going to make it seem like an end of the world theme because all of the bacon is gone. Sense all of the bacon is gone that is causing riots and people to find healthier alternatives.  49425511

Week of 5/2

IMG_20140502_224839This week I started the Shaw Challenge, this weekend I plant to finish the script and the storyboard for the Shaw challenge and will plan on starting to film next week. I will try to finish up my two Web series videos, that I have filmed, also. Afterwards I will have two more episodes required for video (will do more than just two), and I will have a final project and a contest to enter, left to do.

Video 2 Project Update

I still have 2 more projects to complete, my news package and my documentary. I believe I have 2 great ideas for each. I will start doing my news package next by starting my pre-production by making my storyboard with dialogue, props, locations and actors needed to make this project a reality. I hope is all goes well and will keep you updated on what I am up to week-by-week. If you are wondering what my news package will be, right now I do have an idea, but I would like to wait on it until I feel I have a solid base of a plot going on before releasing what it will be.
