     Hey, it's Jake. In Media Magic today we are editing and finishing up the filming of our trailers. These are trailers for motion pictures. We have been recreating them over the past 2 weeks. In my group, we are recreating the first television spot for the Dark Knight. Jordan, Felipe and Nyree have been working on a trailer for the film 1000 leaves. Jack, Taylor, and Eamon have been working on a Rushmore trailer. All in all, we have been working hard on these and cannot wait to finish.

      Tyler Jake and I encountered an interesting scene wherein we had to produce someone doing pushups whilst someone watched in the background. This is a shot of this scene, while we are trying to figure what to do in the scene.
     This is Jack portraying Max Fischer in a scene from the trailer for Rushmore. It came out well.
      This is Elissa with Domonique in a scene from the Dark Knight, which had a football stadium collapsing and exploding around the players.
     This is Jordan explaining to Mike and Felipe about something to do with the film trailer for 1000 leaves.

     Now Domonique joins me to go over our highs and lows for today. This is Jake. My high for today was certainly my acting in regards to the batman cityscape, viewing the city from the top of a skyscraper. In regards to a low, I have difficulty coming up with one. Now Domonique! For a high: I had a fun time working and watching the football stadium collapse team, and it was also fun to watch the scene with batman on the skyscraper. As for a low, no low today. I think everyone worked really hard and the remakes for the trailers came out really great!

Today was a good day for Media Magic. Everyone did not show up today but we kept pushing and accomplished more things. everyone is working hard and their trailers are coming out great. My group is a little behind and is still working on props and setting up for the football scene for the dark knight rises. I had fun today but at some points i was getting frustrated because i messed up on one of the props and have to do that one over. Overall today was fun for me and i cant wait to finish our project.

The Behind the Scenes Look

Today was a pretty good day. Not a lot of people were here, however, this gave Nyree and I the awesome opportunity to film the behind the scenes of Tyler being Bane from The Dark Knight Rises and Eamon doing a scene from the movie Rushmore. I had fun doing it and I bet that Nyree did as well, and apparently she really likes some weird food called Poppy Corn.

Media Magic week 5 day 2

This week's project is recreating movie trailers. We build our own props, use our own actors, and film our own scenes mirroring those of the big screen films. My group is recreating the trailer for Rushmore.  While we lack a gym, a courtyard, or someone who can do a triple backflip, we do have cardboard! We have copious amounts of cardboard...
