Summarise the "Don't Panic" video is a couple of sentences:
Swedish guy talks poverty. He makes me believe in humanity. He visits poor people and broadcasts their woes and he tries to convince us to help. His video really convinces me that we can do it! We can help all poor people by 2030!
What were some interesting new things you took away from the video: We're doing pretty well so far, and the governments in most countries actually are taking action
How this video help you make better decisions later in life?: It makes me feel... sad. It also makes me want to help these people achieve their goal.
What questions do you still have after watching the video. How did he pull those hologram charts off? I want to know. Also,

In my Language Arts 7 class, I made a charity video for the pacific links foundation. The pacific links foundation helps abused women regain their social status and education. They are trying to help people who live in unsuitable homes. They also create workshops so young children who can't afford an education can get that education! I talked about all of those topics in my video. I went for a short, informative format, where I just spout out facts and have photos and things like that. I went out of my way to find some of the more meaningful photos that make sense with what i'm saying on the outside, but if you dig deeper, you can find a hidden meaning.
One of the problems I encountered was my voice. When I recorded my videos, I fine tuned my voice so it would be perfect to listen to for people with earbuds or headphones. When I presented my video, I realized the sound was too low for speakers! I also had problems when it came to reading off scripts and acting, so I had to make do with hand gestures.
Some of the techniques I used to persuade people these: I used hand gestures to make it feel like I was talking to the audience, not just to a camera. I looked straight at the camera and had a serious look to make people feel like it was an urgent matter (which it was). I also received no help from the charity itself.

Our Language Arts Tutorial video was made to help the 6th grades get used to Dragons apprentice by giving them tips.We addressed our audience by adding little skits that would (hopefully) entertain and help the visual learners. I tried to use all of my knowledge when making the video. Me, Judy, and Cindy "worked together on this project. Me and judy were productive, but Cindy.... was off task the entire time. It was very straight forward mostly.

Basically, we had to make a filter that was cheap and efficient.
We had a bunch of different ideas, like a normal, simple, water filter. But no, we didn't do that. Because we didn't want to follow the system. So, we found this:
screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-8-58-17-pm and started work. We tried a couple variations, but in the end we just stuck to airtight seals as the only change. Here's the first prototype:photo-on-12-8-16-at-8-24-am
The tests... weren't so great. But we weren't going to give up. We added an extra layer of security with a custom, never seen before filter. we also poked some more holes in the top, seeing that our pot nearly blew up during the last experiment due to steam pressure buildup.
Our last experiment went great! We got a 7 on the ph scale and the turbidity was crazy good (Meaning it was clear)

I honestly loved this project. I really liked creating the water filter, and working with my partner.

I think the final product was pretty decent, but I think I could've done better. I was thinking about adding some WACkY greenscreen effects, but I was too lazy. I think that being lazy was my only downfall. One of the challenges that I faced was NOISE. I had to mess around with the sound settings in iMovie because there was a conference in the background of my audio clip. In the end I guess im kind of proud of my video, but i'm not amazed by it. I think the video enhanced the poem, because of timing and such. I emphasised sadness, but then had a twist at the end which made it a bit funnier.

WHAT IS THE PASSION PROJECT?
ITS A PROJECT WHERE YOU CAN DRAW WHATEVER YOU WANT.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE PROJECT?
PRETTY MEH. I'VE DONE THIS BEFORE.

WHAT IS YOUR PROJECT?
IM MAKING A LANDSCAPE PIXEL ART APOCOLYPSE PAINTING

WHAT STEPS DO YOU NEED TO MAKE TO COMPLETE THIS TASK?
I NEED TO CREATE A BACKGROUND, MAKE THE FOCUS POINT ITEMS, AND THEN MAKE IT LOOK SHARP.

What did you achieve today? A lot actually. I started work on animating the flag and got rid of the discusting purple placeholder square.

What went well and what needs to change next class? I need to work on that Sun next class... But I think I did well with the flag. I might need to make it a bit more thin.

What did you learn today? I learned how to animate a flag without making it look diabetic.

What are your next steps? Adding the sun, making the gas clouds at the bottom move, and... making it more scenic. Maybe I could even add some Monster thingies!

Color mixing went really well, but next class I need to mess around with my psychedelic eyeball moon planet things so they look better.

What challenges did you have with the process of this assignment
Had almost none except for the part where I couldn't find the original photos attribution, but other than that I was fine.
Why did you chose your image?:
It was funny and I think it really captures the spirit of my poem.

How does your image reinforce, support, or enhance the theme of the poem?
Its funny, it gets to the point, and it's relateable.
