Last days of school

Today is the last Friday of the year. I am so excited for summer, even though it’s gonna be hot. I won’t have to wake up early and do anything that might keep me busy. Because I have 2 and a half months to do whatever I want out of 12 months. I won’t have to stress about homework or schoolwork. I have my graduation on Wednesday, then I’m going to high school, which is already stressful to think about. But I guess I do have time to relax and not worry about work. So that’s it, I think this is the last blog? Not sure but bye anyways.

Finals

The warriors are in the finals against the Cav’s for the fourth year. It may seem boring for people who are not a fan of either, but when it’s your team your gonna love it. The Warriors won game 1 yesterday. At the end Lebron and Tristan were upset. Then Tristan hit Draymond in the face, as if he needed to get himself in anymore drama. At the end of the game when there was less then 10 seconds left. The cavaliers got to make two free throws. The score was 106-107 and the warriors were winning. One free throw made it, which made a tie, and the left one didn’t. Then they went overtime and the warriors won. Yay!

Weekend

So this weekend I did do a lot of stuff, kinda. On Saturday I went to the movies to watch breaking in, which kind of sucked in my opinion. On Sunday my family came over for my cousins birthday. It was fun, there was a lot of candy. Now I feel sick!

Script Comparisons

The script/film that I chose was sing. Looking at the script and movie was different, it was the same thing. The script had everything written down, like the actions of the characters, the dialogue, or whats happening. The movie is just showing whats going on speeding up from whats was written on the scrip. Nothing was really different between the script and the movie, but one of the first scenes. Two people get their tickets, go into a theater, find seats and it is not mentioned in the script. The script had every little detail of what happened in the movie, which makes sense, but its all organized of whats going to happen or whats being planned. The movie uses a lot of different shots that are in the script. They push back the angle to make the scene wider and they turn and face the camera to different people or directions. Usually after most of the dialogue there are descriptions of what the character is doing, if they are walking or sitting down, or the slightest action. Writing scripts in my opinion is hard, making a full script for a movie that people watch and judge on is even more difficult. Looking at this script there was a lot of things that I could have improved on my scrips. I never really mentioned setting, location, or anything else. I did use a lot of dialogue though, and that was what I mainly thought was the most important part of a script. But in scripts people mentions settings and sounds. I never mentioned sounds in my scripts. I do think that it is important to mention sound because its an important part of the movie. The biggest surprise when I looked at the film’s script is that there was not as much dialogue as I thought. Most of the pages are just filled with locations, actions, and sounds. In movies dialogue is most of what your paying attention to, in scripts it focuses on whats happening rather then what characters are saying. Other than that, I never really found anything else different in the script other than the actions being more important then the dialogue. This was fun to look at, seeing how different a film and a script look.

My weekend

I did not really do anything interesting this weekend as usual. On Saturday my cousin came over and we went to my cousin birthday. It was at my grandpas house. It was not that long but it was fun. On Sunday, which is today, I went to my cousins house and we just basically hung out. It was cool, we watched movies and I pet their dog, who is very cute.

Wednesday’s field trip.

Wednesday morning the whole class was heading to a field trip. The kids were in different cars in groups. The first stop was McDonald’s, the class had to buy their own food. Then the class was going to San Francisco. It took about an hour and 20 minutes. We had two field trips, one to KQED and San Francisco State. Our field trip for KQED started at 10:30 and we got there at about 8 o’clock. But waited for a while, we also went to the park to wait tell the tour started. Once we got  inside we saw were they filmed their news. Then they split the kids up and did tours with different people. It was fun and looked cool. If I had the chance to go again I would. Then at around 12 o’clock we went back to the cars and drove to San Francisco state. We went inside to go and eat in their cafeteria. Then we got a tour and looked around their film classrooms. After we finished the tour we went to their merchandise store and looked around. Then we left. San Francisco state was cool as well because their film studios look nice. After we went back to the school and went home.

Camera Shots and Angles project

The film that I am using for the project is from Fast and Furious 8. The short video is called, “Everybody meet Brian.” It is the scene from the end of the movie.

  1. The first camera angle is the wide shot, the angle is a wide shot for about 2 seconds. The camera is recording the actors having their backs turned to the camera. The effect that the camera angle has on the audience is to show the bond of the characters of the movie and to show the relationship they have with one another. On the wide shot angle the actress is rubbing the other actors back and saying, ” It’s okay.” It would not change the film at all if the angle were taken anywhere else. The director chose the angle, because its suppose to be a “touching moment” and the director shows that it is. The shot gets the attention of the bond that the characters  have with each other.
  2. The next angle shot is more of a over the shoulder and close up but its more shot from the front of the shoulder. It shows one actors face and half of the other actors face and body. The camera shot is about 4 second long. The actress “Letty” kisses the other actor “Dominic” on the shoulder and she tells him that his son will be there soon, because he is worried about him. The effect on the audience is also just showing the bond that they have with each other. The film would change a bit if it were more of a wide shot showing their faces and frontwards over the shoulder. The director chose this camera angle because it shows someones face expressions. The shot focuses my attention on the actress.
  3.  The next camera shot is more of a wide shot over the shoulder. It shows another actresses shoulder but its more far and you can see the other actors talking to her. The effect that the camera shot has on the audience is showing a funny scene and to get the reaction of the characters. The film would not change at all if the camera angle was shot at some other angle. Like I said the camera angle being shot shows the reactions of both actors which is probably what the director was thinking. The shot focuses the attention on the actors and what they are saying.
  4. The next camera shot is about one second. It is an actual over the shoulder shot. You can see one of the actors facial expressions when the actor speaking is talking. The effect that the camera shot has on the audience is that it shows what the actors reaction is one one of the other actors is speaking to her. The film would not change because the camera shot is one second long. The director was trying to capture the actors reaction with the camera shot, over the shoulder. The shot focuses on the reaction, which was what I mentioned before.
  5. The next camera shot was not more than a second, so there was not much of a scene in it and not a lot of information to get from. The shot that was being used is kind of like the second shot. Its more like a frontward over the shoulder and a close up. The director was more focused on the reaction, once again. The effect that the camera shot has on the audience is that it shows the actors expression and look when another actor says something funny or weird. The shot is more focusing on expression, just like any other movie would.
  6. The next camera shot is an extreme over the shoulder. You can see one actors shoulder and half of the back. While the other two actors are talking to the actor. The effect that that the camera shot has on the audience is watching the actors trying to talk another character into something and it shows their reactions. The director chose this shot because it focuses on who is speaking at a time. The shot is more about who is talking.
  7. The next shot is also over the shoulder. The actor that is talking, his shoulder is being used for the over the shoulder shot. The shot that the effect has on the audience is that it shows, once again, is more about the actor that is not talking, and is more about her face expressions towards the one that is talking. The director chose this angle shot because it fit in and made sense to put in the movie. The movie would be different if there was another shot because the angle that is being used is the only shot that could be used. The shot is more based on expression.
  8. The next angle is an establishing shot. You can see in the shot that the audience is only able to see one side of the three actors and the shot kind of spins or turns. The shot that this has on the audience it pays more attention to the movement of the actors and tone of each of their voices. If there were a different camera shot for this scene it would not be noticeable and would not change the film at all. The director chose this film for the same reason it has an effect on the audience, the director wants to show the movement of the actors while their are talking. The shot is focuses on the movement.
  9. The next scene is also at most a second, there’s not a lot to see during the shot. The shot is more of a close up and shows the facial expression of the actor that the close up is being shown on. The effect that it has on the audience is that it shows the audience the facial expression of the actor. The director chose this shot to make it seem close enough to see the expression that the actor was making. If the angle was shot some other angle it would not be as funny as it seems with the close up. The shot focuses on the expression of the actors and the effect it could have on the audience.
  10. The next scene is also kind of similar to angle number two. It is kind of a frontward over the shoulder. Not much of a close up. The only effect that the actor could have on the shots of the movie are often the same that the actors are using. The scene used for the shot is funny so the shot shows the joke. The reaction is the audience laughing. The director chose this to show the reaction of the actor. I think that the shot would be better at a different angel.
  11. The next angle,had enough time to get information from. This shot is a over the shoulder shot. The actor that shoulder is being shot constantly nodes his head. The shot is also similar to a noddy shot. I think that it is a good angle to use and would change the movie if another angle was shot. The effect that this angle has on the audience is it show the actors being wrong and its funny to watch. The director chose this shot because you get more of angle. The shot is more focused on the reaction of the actors.
  12. The next shot is about 2 seconds and is a wide shot angle. The shot that the angle has on the actors is that they see more of a expression of desperation. The shot is also similar to a close up, but not completely. The director much have shown this angle because it is fast and it fits in with the film. The movie would look different if the shot were not used for the movie. I think that shot pays more attention to the reaction of the actors, like most of the scene pay attention to in the movie.
  13. The next angle is the same one as the 12 shot, but with a different actor. It is a wide shot that look a bit similar to the close up. The shot focuses on the expression of the actor and movement of his arms. The actor chose this shot because it goes with the movie and it makes sense to put it in during the scene. Like I said in the 12th shot, the movie would look different without the shot because it fits in the movie. The shot is also paying attention to the reaction and movement of the actors.
  14. This shot is like split a second. Its an over the shoulder but it shows both actors shoulders. In the middle you see the other actress talking. The shot catches the audiences attention because of the way it moves quickly and how it is not really there. The movie would be no different if this angle was not being used. I don’t think that the angle should be used in the movie, I could look better as a wide shot or close up. I have no clue what the director was thinking while putting this in, but the director was possibly thinking that you can see all actors while one was talking. The shot is more focused on who’s speaking and the movement of the speaker.
  15. The next shot is a wide shot. It shows both actors confused at the one actor, and what she was asking them. The shot shows the audience the confusion that both actors have. The angle is good and it would be weird if the angle were used in a different shot. The director chose this to show the confusion of both actors. The shot is based on the confusion that the characters have, which makes it funny.
  16. The next shot is more of a close up, but it is similar to a wide shot, but closer. The actor tells the other two about their confusion and laughs about it. The effect that the scene has on the audience is laughter because its funny to see a close up on someones reaction on someone else’s confusion. The director chose this angle to put in the movie because it made sense and it all fit in. I would not want to shot to be changed because it seems like it fits in. The shot focuses on the reaction.
  17. The next shot is a wide shot. It shows both the actors with confusion trying to explain and it just seems funny. The effect that the shot has on the audience is that it shows both actors response and confusion. The film would be different on another angle. The director is focusing the audience’s attention to the confusion that makes them laugh. The shots are focused on the confusion of the actors.
  18. The next shot is kind of a close up. It shows the actor laugh, turn around, and walk away. The effect that the shot has on the audience is that it makes them laugh. The director must has shot this angle because they wanted to show the reaction of the actor walking away from the other two. I think that if this shot was not the one that was chose then it would look strange and weird. The shot is more about reaction.
  19. The next shot is the same as the seventeenth shot. It shows the actors in confusion trying to guess something and getting it wrong, which is why the other actor walked away. The effect that the shot had on the audience is that it shows the actors laughing. Most scenes with these two actors, Roman and Tej, it is usually a funny scene, which is why they laugh in most of their scenes. This was a good shot to take in the movie, if a different shot was used then the movie would look different and would not make a lot of sense. The director put the scene in because there would not be any other reaction to put in the scene. The shot is mostly payed attention on the reaction of the actors and the laughter and expression being expressed from them.
  20. The scene changes. The camera shot is a wide shot angle. It shows two people hugging. The effect that this shot has for the audience is that it shows one actor saying thank you to another actor. I think that there should be a different angle being used in the movie. The director chose this angle to show the bond that the movie already has on other people during the movie. The shot is payed attention to the bond that they already have on each other.
  21. This camera shot is about an over the shoulder and a wide shot at the same time. At first its kinds far then when the actor starts talking it goes to a over the shoulder and stops there. The effect that this shot has on the audience is that it shows two people talking. It would not change the film as much if there was a different shot, I think it would be better if a different shot were used. I think that the director chose this shot to show both actors in the camera. The shot is showing two people talking.
  22. The camera shot that is being used is a over the shoulder. The over the shoulder shot is being used when the two actors are talking. One actor is talking and you could see his full facial expressions. The effect that this shot has on the actor is that it shows how they communicate something important to one another. They make eye contact then they kind of look somewhere else. The film would not change at all if the camera shot were different because it kind of doesn’t make a good camera shot either, so it would be better if it changed. I think that the director put this in because it shows them talking at a wide enough angle. The shot focuses on the way they talk to each other.
  23. The next camera shot is also a over the shoulder. The actor who’s shoulder was being shown was talking to the other actor. The other actors facial expression was from normal to upset and he was looking down. The effect that the shot had on the audience was that the actor was upset. If there were a different shot, I don’t think it would change the movie much, people would not even notice. I think that the director put that angle in because it made sense for one actor to tell another bad news and the other to act upset. The shot is about on the speaking.
  24. The next camera shot is again, over the shoulder. The two actors are still having their conversation. The audience sees this over and over again over the shoulder shot as two actors having their conversation. The effect that the audience has on the camera shot is the same angle again and again, but it’s not much of a problem. The audience watched the movie and saw two actors discussing what was going on and what their problem was. The director must have shown this shot because it made sense to do this.
  25. The next camera shot is a close up. One actors is giving the other actor something. The effect that this camera shot has on the audience is showing them what someone was giving someone else. If the angle were changed somewhere else then it would not change the movie. The director chose this angle to show the audience what the little girl was giving her father. The shot is focused on daughter giving a gift to her father.
  26. The next camera shot was an over the shoulder. Two actors shoulders were being shown while one was talking. While one actors was opening his gift. The effect that this camera shot has on the audience is that it shows what one actor was opening something. If the camera shot was shot at a different angle it would not change the film at all. The director chose this angle to show the reaction of one of the actors.
  27. The next angle is a close up. The shot closes up on the gift that one of the actors got. The gift is his old bage back and he gets offered his job back. He turns down though. The effect that the camera shot has on the audience is showing the gift and what he got. If the shot was taken anywhere else it would make the movie seem different. The director chose this shot to show the the actor opening the gift. The shot focuses on the gift.
  28. The next shot is an over the shoulders shot. There are two other actors shoulders being shown in the shot. The two actors who’s shoulders are being shot are talking, the person that is being shown is not saying anything but he has a facial expression. The effect that that the angle has on the audience is that it shows the actors reaction. The director chose this angle because they wanted to show the actors reaction.
  29. The next shot is over the shoulder. The effect that this had on the audience is that it shows the actors talking. If it were shot at a different angle it would not change the movie. The director chose this angle to show the actors reactions.
  30. The next shot is also over the shoulder. There is no talking in the shot, just one actor smiling. The effect that this camera shot has on the audience is that it shows the reaction. The director chose this so that they audience sees the actors reaction. If there was a different shot, there would not be much as a difference.
  31. The next shot is an over the shoulder. The effect that this had on the audience is that it shows the actors talking. The next shot is also over the shoulder, because both the actors are talking. The director chose this because they wanted to show the conversation between the actors. If there was a different angle shot, it would look different.
  32. The next shot is a close up. The effect that the shot has on the audience is seeing the little girls reaction over what her dad was saying. The director chose this shot to show her reaction. This shot focuses on the reaction.
  33. The next shot was an over the shoulder shot. The effect that the shot has on the audience is that it shows the actor and what he is saying. If there were a different shot for this angle then it would not change the movie at all. The director chose this angle because they wanted to show who was talking at a time.
  34. The next shot is over the shoulder. It shows the reaction and speaking of the person who is talking. The director chose this because it made sense to record who was speaking. The effect that this angle had on the audience is to show who is talking. The shot is more focused on the speaker and reaction of the speaker.
  35. The next shot is also a close up. It closes up on the little girls face. The effect that the angle had on the audience is showing facial expressions, once again. The director chose this angle to get more of an idea of what the girl was thinking when she was hearing everyone around her talking about something that concerns her. The shot is focused again on reaction.
  36.  This angle is a over the shoulder. The person who is speaking has their shoulder shown, while the other one is speaking as well. The effect that the shot has on the audience is that it shows them having a conversation. The director chose this shot because it shows them having a conversation. The shot is focused on reaction and conversation.
  37. The next shot is a close up. The shot closes up on the little girls face and the camera kind of turns and backs up at the same time. The effect that this shot has on the audience is that is shows the girl hugging her dad. The director chose this shot because it shows her love for her dad. The shot focuses on the movement and action.
  38. Over the shoulder shot is the one being used now. The effect that the shot has on the audience is that it shows them having a brand new conversation. The director chose this shot, so it could be the final scene where they have there conversation. The shot is focused on their conversation.
  39.  The next shot is a wide angle shot. It shows them shake hands and leave. The effect that this shot has on the audience is their movement and the way they move. The director chose this shot so it could get a full shot of all of them in the camera. The shot is more focused on movement.
  40. The next shot is a split second. It is an over the shoulder shot. The effect that this shot has on the audience is that it shows the way they leave. The director chose this for the next scene. The shot is focused on movement as well

Saturday

I usually go to my brothers baseball game on Saturday at 8 in the morning. But instead it started at 10 in the morning, which is good because I had time to sleep in a bit. My cousins came over to see my brother play. After that we all went to the flea market and ate. I got really bad allergies and my eye was swollen for the rest of the day. We went back to my house and hung out there, and that was basically what happened on Saturday.

Mothers day

I am going to write down what I did for mothers day. So in the morning me, my sister, my dad, my brother, and my cousin all went to the store while my mom was sleeping so we could get her some stuff. We got he a card, a cake, a balloon, and a gift card with a hundred dollars in it. We had a mothers day party at my house and a lot of my aunts, uncles, and cousins came. We did a lot of fun stuff and ate a lot of food. Overall, today was a good day.

Tuesday

So if you did not know I have braces. I can’t eat a lot of things with them on, which is kind of annoying! I basically have metal in my mouth. Can’t even bite an actual apple, but enough of that. About a year ago I went to my actual dentist, not the orthodontist. They pulled out one of my teeth and it never grew back. So they said once I have had braces for 6 months and if it hasn’t grown then the orthodontist is going to put a chain in my gum and yank out the tooth. So you can guess what’s happening on Tuesday. Yep, I can’t wait! Sike….
