Right now in GT our new project is about coding. I think that coding is a thing that everyone should know how to do. The world is only going to invent more technology so why not learn how to use it? If everyone knows how to code, it opens up everyone to the world of creating new programs and games to anyone that has an idea. Everyone will be able to do new things with technology. If someone has an idea for a new program but they don't know how to program, how are they going to do it?
My first experience with programming was pretty good. It was definitely easier than I thought it would be. I was expecting it to be very complicated. I also thought that I wouldn't be able to understand it. I have lots of books about different programming languages that I haven't read yet. Now that I have some experience with code, I have now become more interested in reading them.
If I could design any program or game it would probably be something like an app that you could get on your phone. It would also have something to do with connecting with friends, so maybe something like a social media app. I wouldn't want to try and replace any social media apps that already exist, so I would try to come up with a different idea that still involves communicating with friends. I chose this because it seems like an easy way to make a lot of money. There are lots of new ideas that become popular really easily, and I think that some kind of social media app is a kind of idea that will be able grow in popularity pretty fast.
We are finally at the end of this joke project! I have learned a lot during the making of this monologue. I think that the thing I improved the most on is writing good jokes. The first joke I came up seemed pretty easy. My second joke was definitely the hardest, and now I find joke writing to be pretty quick and simple. I have also learned a lot about how to be comfortable when recording your monologue for A-Roll. Last year when we had to record ourselves speaking I felt really uncomfortable but after doing it a lot this school year I got used to it.
Pad is the extra space that you put before and after you take a clip. It is very important to pad your clips so nothing important gets cut off. To pad your clips, you start rolling, then you wait a couple of seconds, then you start filming. When the shot is over, you should wait another couple of seconds so nothing gets cut off. Sometimes when you start recording it doesn't actually start filming until a couple of seconds. When I film, I usually wait 5 seconds just to be sure. It is very disappointing when you have a good shot but part of it gets cut off.
My hardest part was definitely trying to think of jokes. I originally thought of one joke that I was happy with, but it was only 15 seconds long. I needed at least another 15 seconds but I couldn't think of another joke. I definitely struggled with this the most but I was able to pull through it. I think my strength was definitely editing. I already had a good idea of where I was going to put my clips so it was just a matter of placing it and adding effects to it. I think that I could've added some transitions and effects to make my monologue look better. I also think that I could've recorded my monologue better because you could hear the wind blowing a lot in my video.
What's up people!
