The hottest new band on the scene appears to be the gorgeous Aussie band 5 Seconds of Summer, and we all know why. They have the most gorgeous drummer, Ashton. Also, they can actually sing and sound brilliant live.
When I saw their music video for ‘Wherever you are’, I thought, that video would be so much more effective if just in the studio. However it would come across as a bit too ‘One Direction: Little Things’. So I tried my best to re-edit it in a way, I felt gave the song more justice. I had problems doing this ‘re-edit’ because I didn’t want to repeat the studio footage and there wasn’t much to play with. So I just did my own version.
When I am bored or procrastinating there is one thing that will always satisfy my need to do something other than housework, cleaning out my pet Rabbit Lola or you know Editing for my 162MC module, and that is Photoshop.
I just love designing little Event posters, magazine covers/content pages and logos. It’s a very creative process and I enjoy the feeling of starting off with no clue and ending up with a masterpiece. My sister’s friend needed a promotional flyer done for her Christmas Cafe and I had some time on my hands so I whipped up a double sided design and safe to say I was gobsmacked at how I did it – without the use of a YouTube tutorial.
This is the one I made last night of a Cafe in Seattle, I started off with making my own name up although as it turns out Sky Cafe is the name for the Restaurant on top of the Space Needle! I even made up my own food for the menu, how creative am I?
My brave sister is currently traveling the world as a Jet setter. With plans to travel Asia in under 50 Days time, I wanted to design her a new logo for her blog.
The work in progress logo and design:
Using Colour in Premiere Pro
What is Colour Correction? It is the process of storytelling that creates meaning and fixes footage. It helps to match existing clips that may have a contrast in light temperatures.
Colour Correction Terminology: Tint, Shade, Tone and Luminance.
Colour Types: Primary, Secondary, Tertiary.
CMYK – Printer colours, RGB – Screen colours (ie: on Laptop, phone.)
If you can get the colour temperature correct – through White Balance – in the Production stage, the post-production will be a lot easier.
- Offering new content will keep the ever-changing teenage generation interested. Right now BBC Three feels like it is on constant repeat, as much as I love seeing the repeats of Gavin and Stacy, it is boring watching it over and over again.
- Target more of the male audience, there is a lot of shows on BBC Three that mainly target females (Hair, Pramface, Some Girls) Plus the aesthetic outlook of BBC Three’s branding is pink and very feminine.
- Broadcast earlier in the day.
- During the last day of the Sochi Games 2014, Top Gear was watched by 4.7million people, beating ITV’s Family Fortunes.
- The programme currently holds the World Record of Most Watched Factual Programme, Worldwide.
- There is an international version of the show, which is edited by the BBC before being sold to other countries – the BBC World version is cut 30-minutes short.
- The first original Top Gear started in 1977, which eventually became axed in 2001 as Jeremy Clarkson left to widen his TV career. It was then revived in 2002, when Clarkson returned to the show, boasting the ratings.
Whenever I watch a documentary I get really into it. I become almost hooked to the screen. Some documentaries more than others…Disaster in the Skies, Queens Crash, 9/11: The Firemen’s Story.
See the thing with Documentaries are, they show someone’s depiction of the truth. It doesn’t necessarily mean it is the whole truth (and nothing but the truth). In Semester one of my degree, we watched a documentary on a Flamingo Dancer and I remember the lecturer telling me, the dancer was in prison but that wasn’t shown in the documentary, but as a viewer I wanted to know thats what happened. I feel really strong about how documentaries should be what is real. For instance, I would be really annoyed if they put up a new documentary on the latest Air Incident and told me lies.
Anyway, tonight, or rather at 2am on a Monday morning – damn my erratic sleep patterns – I settled down to watch ‘Sexting Teacher’, a documentary I was quite interested in once I saw the advert, however Maisy-The-MacBook got into a bit of a liquid incident and was in Apple Surgery for 6 Weeks, meaning I couldn’t 4OD it.
So the documentary is about Jeremy Forrest, a Maths teacher who went onto pursuing a Student into a relationship. The teacher was twice her age and they eventually ran off with each other to France, causing an international appeal.
I can’t say that the Student’s crush was stupid, because – and I speak for everyone when I say this – I’ve had my share of crushes on a teacher. I mean, after all it is a major fantasy for some. The documentary focused purely on how awful, how completely reckless it was of the teacher to run away with her but here is my thought…
The teacher was stupid to Privately Tweet her apologising for shouting at her, knowing that she would reply, thus sparking a relationship. At one part of the documentary, there is something said like, she should have known better, but at fifteen, I’m sure we all did stupid things. She shouldn’t have known better, he should have.
He got a tattoo depicting the student, he ‘inked’ himself for that student, if I was fifteen and saw my ‘crush’ teacher do that I would have fallen in love, probably.
The programme also tells the story of two others who ran away and got involved with teachers, so it appears to be almost normal. Yet, it is the most obscene thing, running away with a student to France. The other girl who had a relationship with a teacher mentioned ‘it wasn’t his fault, I pursued him. I had the control.’ But my opinion on that statement is, yes you may have had the control but you weren’t in the right mind to make any big decisions. This is why I am so gobsmacked at the amount of teenage pregnancy shows there are (young mom, teen mom/2, sixteen and pregnant), I’m like you’re sixteen you aren’t in the right mind to know if you are emotionally ready to have an intimate relationship.
The biggest decision I ever made was choosing and going to University and even now, almost finished first year, I still feel I am emotionally unstable to go to University.
In regards Sexting Teacher, can I just say, how can you blame a teenager for having a relationship with a man twice her age, when at fifteen, no one can really see the severity of situations. During our teenage years, these things can seem like harmless fun. Then the next thing you’re on a Ferry to France.
