The school year is almost over, which means that there will be a new CKTV Media crew! For those of you that are going to be new to the class, I have a few words of advice for you... First of all, within the two years of being in this class, if there's anything you need to know, it would be to ALWAYS CLEAN UP THE MESS! Also, something else you should know is to pay attention! Lastly, you should be aware of the time.
First of all, you all need to put away the messes you make! Even if you see something that's not yours, you should still put it away, or else Mr. M will not be happy. I suggest you just take my word for it and not learn the hard way… For example, if you leave out a piece of paper, put it away! If you see equipment lying around, I'd just ask the class if anyone is using it before putting it away incase people were to use it. If you see someone's script lying out on the table, don't just leave it there for them to get in trouble! Be a nice person and give it back to them.
Second of all, everyday, you should be paying attention to what Mr. M has to say, or whatever the speaker has to say, because people really don't like saying things over and over again. And trust me, we've all learned it the hard way… Sooooo, with that being said, you know not to talk or even make weird faces to your friends while Mr. M or a guest is talking. Otherwise, they will not be pleased with our interruption. Believe me. We've all been there, done that, and don't wanna do it again.
Last, but not least, you need to be aware of the time you have, whether it's your deadlines, or just the amount of time you have daily. I say this because a lot of people in our class don't really keep track of their time, and they just progress slowly with their projects, and end up rushing it in the end. You also need to be aware of your time when you're staying after school. If it's 3:30, that means 3:30. If it's only till 3:00, it's only until 3:00. So, with that being said, you should plan it out first, so you know exactly what you're doing and you don't waste time. Same goes for when you're filming. You don't want to waste anyone's time by not being organized.
This is basically all I have to say… Clean up the messes, pay attention, and keep track of time! You don't want to learn the hard way that you're not supposed to talk when others are talking, or that you're supposed to pick up after yourself. If you catch yourself in one of these situations, don't make up an excuse to get out of it, because that just makes things worse than it already is. Anyways, I hope my advice helped all of you! Good luck to you all next
