Hey guys! It's Martha here blogging directly from the last day of this session of Media Magic! :[ It's actually really upsetting that it's ending so quickly. During this I was very greatly introduced into the Apple world. Not only that but I met some AMAZING people while here. It's great knowing there are actual humans out there that enjoy making movies and coming up with the ideas for them just as much as I do.
Ryan and Mary Ellen were the most AMAZING teachers EVER! I met two people that I feel I've known forever and have so much in common with! They're my heroes.
All of the other people here that helped us get all of these things done are amazing as well. They tolerated us just as much as we tolerated each other.
But most importantly my fellow Media Magic-ers. I've worked with them during this session and even though I already know some of them, I feel like they're all family now.
Media Magic helped me electronically grow.
And I hope to be a part of it in the future <3
Love, Martha <3 ;3
Sadly, today is our last day of Session 2 of Media Magic. In comparasion of the two, I enjoyed this one more because of how many creative minds joined together for amazing short pieces. I wish we had more time to hang for film, but all good things come to an end. Til next time, fellow viewers!

Signing off with Smiles,
The main goals for the scripts were to have amazing story structure, build up brilliant dialogue, and superb character development. With a flip camera in hand and a Mac on task, we all had tons of resources to create these two films-to-be.
One last thought: would anyone know when the narwal bacons?
See you guys next time for Media Magic Blogs!!

I do go on the internet everyday. I mostly use it for my facebook to chat with friends.
When doing group work, I don't like sharing ideas because I am kinda shy, but I like to support other peoples ideas if I like the ideas.
If my close friend and I had a disagreement, first I would be quiet and think about what just happened to see what went wrong. If I was at fault I would kindly apologize but if not I would make her see reasons that she was wrong.
If I was asked to do something that I didn't know how to do I would first try to figure out how to do it myself but if I can't do it I would just leave it alone and ask for help.
My time on the web consists of me looking up random facts and "tidbits", Looking at funny pictures, and editing stories that I write.
If I were to be working in a group, there are a few roles that I interact with. I am a BIG creative idea person. I work my best when I am asked to "Think outside of the box" or come up with something new. I also work well when it comes to organization and planning. Things just flow easier when you have everything written down on paper. Usually when I am in a group I will be nominated to lead or choose to spearhead the project myself. I work pretty well under pressure.
Ah, when it comes to friends, I have a few good ones. If a close friend and I were to disagree on something we wouldn't stop talking, hate each other, or even try to see the other persons side. We would argue our point out in shouts until we are blue in the face! After about maybe 12 hours we might decide to call it a tie, and then we would just laugh about the ridiculous points we tried to make. I have stubborn friends.
What would I do if i was asked something and didn't know how to do it? Honestly? If I was asked to do something I wasn't sure how to do, I would do it anyway. Unless it was like a cataclysmic, life or death decision, I would pretend to know what i'm doing and push forward with the same conviction I would have if I was an expert at the task.
Im not exactly sure how much T.V. I've been watching but it hasn't been a lot of T.V. I would say my favorite T.V. shows that i watch are Family Guy, Bleach, Adventure Time, and a few more I can't think of right now. The movies that I like are movies that are suspenseful and horror movies.
How often do I go on the internet, and what do I use it for?
I go on the internet just about every day. I usually play games or go on YouTube and look at videos but lately I've been using it to look up information to learn more about the world.
When doing group work, which of these roles do I gravitate towards and why?
-Team leader, Has good ideas, shyly shares them, Has good ideas never share them, Hangs back and let other people do the work, Makes people laugh with shenanigans.
The role that i gravitate to the most is has good ideas, shyly shares them. I gravitate towards that the most because I don't like my ideas being criticized so much.
Say a close friend and I got into an disagreement. How would I respond?
I'd most likely just start off in a calm voice and try to explain my side of the disagreement.
Say I'm asked to do something that I dont know how to do. How do I respond?
I always try and ask someone for help but if no one can help me I look up on how to do what I'm trying to do.

First we talked about our trip to Troy where we talked to people that appeared to be our peers. They also appeared to have made a film without me me... kinda sad about that actually. Then we went over ways of how we could narrate a film of our own and we used some examples, that were actually pretty good. After wards we began learning the Google Doc which is sooooooo awesome I can have a conversation actively ,but I'm very lazy so scratch that. We all have a idea to create a film where we uses narrations to explain the film we are making and so far it's coming along great. So the group I'm in is brainstorming ways to think like a girl pfff, good luck with that, me. Good day to you, good people, see ya! As you can see in picture number two, that would be me.
