well let me start off by saying it was crazy for me because i thought i wasn't going to able to make it in for any of the days because school is starting.I been busy all week getting ready and it really hard fitting in that in my schedule but i made it  through.I came in on Tuesday and started the fly er hm at first  iwas getting frustrated because  i didn't know how to start off,that's why my first and second fly er was um bad.But at the end i got through it all and made perfect one well i think i did .Then when i got done, i went to go help with the last idea on douncementary by telling her what when should added because ididnt wont to feel like ididnt do any work because iwas work on the fly er all day.Okay day two was crazy because i was stuck in Harvey Illinois getting school stuff and soo i really don't know what happen that day but i came and Marquita sent out the fly er to people but through it all ithink we did a good on editing at the end of day,we got over 10mins. I cant wait to see it on big screen :).

My First 3days editing

On the first day of editing our douncementary it was fun,we had everything planned out and all the steps we were going good.But the next day everything went crashing like everybody was spitting out ideas but wasn't anybody moving.My teammate got frustrated and we didn't know what  to do on that day.Following day after that it was the same, everybody just sit their mindless n i get angry because we were getting nowhere but on down the line,the team got back up and start working together and thought things through.I guess teamwork is really hard,that's why you have to communicate more.On Friday I really enjoyed seeing the interrupters it was really great movie,i loved everything in their,i really didn't have a favorite part because the producers and cast did excellent.I hope our documentary be good as that.

Third Day Video Shooting (An Indiana)

When first got to the camp grounds,i was very angry because i knew it was going to be alot bugs.Ughhh  I got bite like 5times and it really sucked.But as the day went on i really enjoy all the experiences coach Jenny and coach Lauren introduce to us.I had fun shooting the girls on camera  and its was kind of funny because they kept laughing and saying funny stuff and you couldn't control it.However, it was very hard to control the boom because their so many freaking bugs out but i tried to stay in control even though it was really hard.The trip was great .The kids that between ages 12-13 were going nuts when we had to show them the way to their cabins because bugs and very high hills.Through it all i enjoyed the new experiences we had at camp buttercup and i enjoyed shooting and booming the microphone.

My Interview Experience

Some lessons that I have learned while I was doing the interview was to make sure the setting in the place was right and that the background was a nice place to interview a person. The lesson was important because you want to have a background that have something to do with the subject that you are interviewing that person about. My thoughts about it was that you can interview a person where every you want to interview a person at and that it really don't matter where the location is. It changed me because I know that the place have to be right and that the place have to have a good light and quite. It make me feel more important and like I really know what I'm doing. The progress of my documentary is that we have a lot of interviews done and we followed the person down that we was suppose to. Our next step is to edit the movie and put some of the footage together.

First Day Video Shooting

When we first got there i didn't know any of the staff at girls in the game but when we started interviewing and setting up the staff and me became very open.They were very nice and understand everything that was going on when we explained it to them.At first I thought i was going to mess up because that boom mic was very heavy but i went on through the day and handle it very well.My thoughts before this week were if the ladies were going to nervous,will they all shaking and we have to calm them down. I learned that everybody different in front of camera.This makes me feel like wow,i wish everybody else was like this.Right now Reel Talent Productions Internship Girls is done documentary why boys get more attention in sports or why they don't get involve in sports.Our next step is to edit our documentary in the up coming week.

My First Day At Reel Talent

When i first got to work ,we seat down and talked because we were early.Later on at 11pm,we started discussing coverage,storytelling,set etiquette and interview techniques.To me and my point view while they were discussing.I Think coverage and storytelling is basically describing other people point view and letting other people see how it feel to be in their shoes.Set etiquette is just saying the roles of each person and telling them important responsibilities they have to follow.I learned Interview techniques and this is important to me because this can help you in the real world one day when your trying to do media and technology in the future.This changed me because it will help me see what being reporter really is and it isn't simple at all.You have to go in and be prepared for anything.This make me feel little nervous because I'm not that out-spoken when it comes to talking to a person face to face.
