My Last Day.

I organized my stuff on my desktop and saved what I had done on these projects and left notes in the folder so this is my last day.

not much of a blog post, kind of anticlimactic.




I interviewed students about then blood drive and job shadowing and had a few with the viewers of this video a merry Christmas.Screen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.33.57 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.34.13 PMWhile I was editing in a particular part of the video a student is swaying side by side and the camera caught it and it was really distracting so I took a screen shot and a green image off the internet ¬†as a placed green screen which didn’t make sense but I didn’t it anyways.Screen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.35.08 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.35.45 PMI placed it over the spot where he would sway back and forth and after a little while of trying to find the right place for it I finally got it.Screen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.36.18 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.36.56 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.37.33 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.40.07 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.40.15 PMyup.Screen Shot 2017-11-30 at 2.42.31 PMI’m out of time.


I’m Tired.

Again I don’t have any pictures or videos to show but we fixed microphone problems today in the studio and outside of the studio for interviewing people, I scouted out an area to shoot the interviews at. We tried to figure out the digital sets on the Tricaster again but we came to a stand still where nothing was happening. in career center we started working on resumes and I am re-doing mine and improving it and updating it and its looking pretty good so far. I am really tired so I’m going to go home and not sleep.


Still Learning.

Today I went into to studio to figure out how the virtual sets worked and after about an hour or so we finally got it. We got Collin to come in and speak about his favorite pop artist but didn’t get any of the audio because after trying to export that video and import it to play we realized the virtual set wasn’t recorded so we figured that out after an hour or so and after exporting and importing that video we found out that the microphones audio wasn’t recorded so we tried figuring that out for an hour but didn’t finish it because we ran out of time and I’m out of time now so I’m going to go home.

Moving Pictures that aren’t Videos

I figured out how to change the image templates on the news intros in After Effects.

All I had to do was double click the template and import the image and size it to how I want.Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 1.14.56 PMIt took me a while to figure this out but once I did it I was able to do it to pretty much all of the templates but I didn’t do all of them because I ran out of images. A cool thing I found out was that I can upload videos hint these as well and they will play.Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 1.24.32 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-27 at 1.24.35 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-27 at 2.06.48 PMI also made the audio I really want for the interviews, I uploaded it it YouTube and I will leave a link. I took a screen shot of Demi from the blood drive and imported it into Photoshop, I erased everything but his head and saved it as a PNG file then I want into the internet and found a cool GIF that looped and I put both together in Premiere.Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 2.24.22 PMFor some reason the music wouldn’t play so I stretched the fig and picture to the start and end of the music file and exported it and imported it back into iMovie along with the song and it worked that way so I uploaded it to youtube that way also.Screen Shot 2017-11-27 at 12.45.50 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-27 at 12.49.18 PMI found the Premiere file for the news intro so I went into it and found the text file to edit and I did. thats pretty much it.

The reason I made it Demi is because I also ran out of images to make as the video and I thought might as well have some fun with it while the news templates rendered and it only took a few seconds to do all of this.

I used the brush tool to make a red line then I transformed it with the flag pre-set.Screen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.04.49 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.07.25 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.08.57 PMI selected the bottom of the line to use a light brush with white to add texture I guess.Screen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.16.33 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.33.46 PMI added some smoke then a text then I selected the text to use the brush tool on it again to make a more abstract gradient.Screen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.34.52 PMI used the outer glow Fx. on the text then found a logo of a store I liked that went out of business.Screen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.49.01 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.49.06 PMI added some images and text with outer glows.Screen Shot 2017-11-20 at 1.59.04 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-20 at 2.16.11 PMScreen Shot 2017-11-20 at 2.35.31 PMI added textures to some of the text and what not, its not the greatest but oh well. I did try to open the files for the news intros but the larger one didn’t buffer in time and I had ran out of time after making this. the next day I wasn’t here because my ride didn’t show up.


I edited some clips of the blood drive, I have to wait to do the interviews.

I started to sort out what clips were usable and what wasn’t and tomorrow I will work on music then wait till I can do interviews.Screen Shot 2017-11-16 at 3.15.49 PM.png

Job Shadowing Day 2017

  1. I shadowed Steve Valencia and Valarie Case and Ali Gavitt.

2. They all were affiliated with the University’s Relations and most of the media for the university.

3. It was a surprise to me how easy it is to get a professional head shot and how easy it is to take them, there wasn’t a whole lot other then different websites and applications can help make an edited photo.

4. Nope.

5. Not really because it doesn’t suit my passion, it looked like they sat in offices and went out to take pictures for school event, most of what I want to do is practical freelance and on a huge scale to short films and movies.

6. That social media can be a job and how to edit photos and take photos.

7. Probably just how many different social medias there are to use and how to use them, other then that I think its pretty well covered.

8. Take some photos and edit them to get some practice in and fill out an application. If that job requires degrees then I would have to get them too.

9. Not a lot. It showed me a few jobs I can do off to the side.


Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 1.30.50 PM.pngI made some questions for the blood drive interviews.

I looked around on a few “give blood” like websites too collet a few regularly asked questions. everyone will be asked the same questions and if anyone has extra things to ask then they can and everything else will be used in editing. I don’t know where the interviews will be held but where ever they are I hope we can do something with lighting, the studio is the only place where there is lighting but nor exactly interview lighting, thats where the lights that I was talking about bringing would help but oh well. at least this video isn’t going to be in a competition.

I would work on music for the interviews but the interviews kind make a tone for the selves so I would have to do that after I see them, other then that there isn’t much I can do for this project, I guess I can try to make some interview questions for the other project for the job shadow day for students.
