In Studio 5, we had a really great time to work on our passions and achieve something unique. Therefore, I represented this piece of artwork to show how relevant was studio 5 to me.
The missiles which I also decorated with chalks and other extraordinary equipment represent the skills which I improved during PYPx. For example, the skill I needed the most in studio 5 is to collect and earn data from what I inquired because if you want to inform others with the information you have, you need to organize it simply to let the audience who sees my data understand what I’m saying. However, I think I did a poor job of presenting my research to others because I didn’t organize the information of what I researched clearly, so people didn’t understand the main idea I’m informing to them.
The holes which I decorated with chalks represent the attitudes that changed during my PYPx. For example, around those things, the biggest change represented in the artwork is independence because the way of learning in studio 5 changed in a huge difference. Therefore, you needed to take care of your own priority, prepare your own materials and etc. However, the attitude I least developed that is represented in this artwork is having empathy because you often work independent in studio 5, so I haven’t got a chance to practice understanding other people’s emotions depending on the situation there in.
Also, the holes represent as I work towards motivation during this amazing unit, I demonstrated autonomy, mastery, purpose because I self directed myself to take new challenges, fail forward and have final success towards my motivation. For example, as I took actions towards my learning of political situations of South Korea, I wanted to create a documentary to teach others about it. Therefore, I self directed and made self improvement to myself to try new ways of filming by learning from mistakes which I have made over the last weeks. However, I had a problem not being able to find new ways to innovate my documentary. So, I asked an expert to teach me how to take a great informal film of mine over and over again until I get it. After having a new idea from him, I was able to take an amazing motivation film.
Finally, the paint dots I made with different colors represent during the PYPx journey, I learned various lessons about myself which might influence my life depending on how I use it. The most relevant life lesson for me is that no matter how much you fail, I never give up because nobody can be perfect unless you try, try and try until you will get better at it and more motivated to it. For example, when I was trying to inquire through how to use adobe after effects create magnificent animations, I made loads of mistakes, but I never gave up and later, became an expert of using it. Keep on being committed to things and never give up until you accomplish something because around every effort you put into something, at least one of them will be successful. Also, you can learn from your mistakes and develop yourself even more for the future.
The Infinite Project ended. However, there is an another project coming up! That project is called the infinite project 2.0!!! In this project, I have lots of excitements because I can learn new things which I have never learned before and practice new skills which I needed to work on in the last project. This is my plan for this project.
What I can do is first, is to email Mr.Frank because in the last project, I struggled to find him due to not discussing with him about his schedule which can be serious waste of time.
Also, just in case, I should watch some documentaries and record some facts in my note book to use it for my piece of film. Furthermore, I will be using animating apps in my devices such as i movie, adobe after effects and adobe illustrator because if I'm so interested in this that I do this at school, I think I should definitely do it as home as well.
I hope next week, I will have some accomplishments.
It is close to the end of this project due to the 5th week of the infinite project over. During this week, I have learned new things, learned new skills to overcome challenges and something new things I should keep on working on. This was my life during week 5. During this period, I think I was good at staying away from my comfort zone because every time if the priorities I must finish is to easy for me, I always think about challenges I can take for me to improve on working on my motivation. For example, when I already mastered how to do 2-D animations in after effects, I kept on thinking about challenges I can take to keep my butt busy. Therefore, I decided to learn how to crate 3-D animations which is much more difficult and enjoyable. However, I think I need to work on finding independent resolutions to problems because if there was a problem to my animation, I always asked Mr.Frank for help and when he is not there I just wasted time watching short track on my laptop. Therefore, I think if there is a problem, I will need to solve it by my own to not waste time and keep on trying my best.
This project has supported us to showing efforts to run towards our goals and I hope it was a good experience to work on my motivation.
Today, I think I did a good job working on my documentary because I only focused on creating animations to make my documentary informally interesting. For example, as I calculate what to animate in my documentary to make it good quality, I have act right away, so that I don't forget about it and save some time to edit it when I'm done with it. However, I think I still need to work on saving my time to work on other priorities because often when I work on my animations in after effects, there things that need to be fixed, but the point is that it can take a lot of time to adjust it. Next time, to solve this problem, I think I should plan the animation in my notebook by drawing, captions and when I'm satisfied with it I can animate what it says to do because then, I would not have to fix anything and go forward and finish my work right way. It is close to the 6th week, but that doesn't mean it's over yet. Next time, I will even try harder to accomplish what I want to do.
Everybody, be aware!!! Because... I have finally filmed a trailer about short track speed skating of Korea!!! From accomplishing this I think I improved showing my creativity differently in each animations because every animations has its own different meaning, so the animation need to be interesting and different from each other as well. However, I think I still need to work on saving my progress because even though, I have worked hard for a project, if you don't take care of it properly, you have no choice, but to lose it. Its the beginning of the 5th week and I should keep working on things I needed to improve during week 4. Lets keep our butts moving!!!
Today, I think it was my best day ever because I have planned all the resources I need to edit my trailer including after effects animations, studio 5 photos and etc. Also, I became the expert of after effects creating key frames to organize the movements of my beautiful creations. However, I think I still need to work on saving my projects, so that I can go back to it when I'm not finished with it because when I just finished animating my project at break, I didn't save it properly. Therefore, I needed to do it all over again until home time. This week is only the beginning. There are still lots of things we need to work on to make the weeks of the infinite project shine. Lets keep our butts moving!!!
Week 3 has ended and the week 4 of the infinite project has came at least. In the last week, I think the thing that I was good at last week is that I have planned and used after affects to animate rotations, opacity and etc to my project. Also, because of this, I was able to create my trailer more interesting. However, I think I struggled on downloading videos on iMovie because since Mr.Frank is not here, I didn't know what do, so I wasted some time watching some short track videos on YouTube. I can fix this by using an i-Mac to download interesting videos in my file and form it to create an effective documentary. Trailer coming soon, so be aware!!!
Week 3 of the Infinite project has came and this how I finished the beginning of the day. Today, I was trying to find out how do you animate your project in basic ways, like rotating, flipping and create transition. However, I didn't discover something new because the tutorials of how to use after effects which is a website I'm using to animate my projects, was too difficult and Mr.Frank, the IT technician gone missing. To solve this problem, I think I need to email Mr.Frank and find out his schedule because you can't just waiting for him? You need to get some work done!!! Therefore, while he is away, I will plan what kind of videos should I download to create my trailer. Lets plan, find experts and get some independent success story going for our future!!!
