Hey everyone I’m back for another blog. This week’s blog is on the Family Night video that I chose to show. I chose our Crazy Eights News Magazine Video that we did at the Crazy Eights competition. I wasn’t the only one who worked on the video. Haley, Evan, Natalie, Kate, Janine, Shayne, and Halea also worked on the video with me. We all equally did our part for this video and there are many reasons why I wanted to play this video.
First, is teamwork. Although a few of us have our different opinions, and argue out of Crazy Eights, we all put it aside and tried our best to not fight. This year it was challenging since we had a small team for a 8 minute video that usually has more people working on it. Even though we had separate teams in our one team, we all worked together and if there was something that needed to be done even if it wasn’t our job, we did it. Like Shayne and Halea were filming downtown Nashville and the other news stories needed footage from there.
Second, the video showed that anyone can make a good video no matter how many setbacks or experience you have in the team. A lot of the time the 8th graders are a huge help to the team because they have the most experience but in this case only half of our group had been in News Magazine at STN. Since there will be the new students at the family night, I want to show them that even though they’re new and not as experienced, they can still do great work no matter how long they’ve been in the class.
Finally, because most of them will be on the News Magazine team next year and I think it’s to see some of the STN categories and what it’s like. This video is a good example of what a News Magazine is like. It has a good opening with a good written stand up and a variety of different stories that all follow one certain topic. Although we turned it in with 2 minutes left, I think we did pretty good since we were filming stand ups an hour before it was due.
This is why I chose the Crazy Eight News Magazine as my video to show at the Family Night. Hopefully the new students will want to join News Magazine after seeing the video and get a better understanding of what it is. Have a great day and wear your seatbelts.
