So first of all, I think our team didn't do so well this previous practice. One reason is because our story wasn't very strong. We had one idea in the beginning and we were all ready to go out and film, but then we got stuck somehow and had to rethink, just like last time, and we got burned. Our story wasn't strong becuase our main problem wasn't strong. I was kind of iffy about the story, but we didn't have much time to film, so we just stuck with it and had to film our idea. In the end, our story was kind of questionable, like it was hard to determine what the story was about. So, that was one downer.
One good thing our team did was work well together, but we always work well, so I guess this wasn't so much of an improvement. Although, there were some disagreements to people's ideas, but we worked it out in the end. None of us really argue with each other, but I guess things just didn't work out becuase none of us really didn't have super great ideas, including myself. That would be something our team needs to improve on. Maybe next time we could try combining all our ideas and see where that takes us, because it might lead to something!
Lastly, next time, I hope our team improves....a LOT. We did good the first time, then got a little worse the second time, and hopefully we will do good next time!!! We just need to work harder and make sure that whatever our plan is, works out in the beginning so we won't have to change it. We should also try and get more sequencing shots so that it looks more fluid and interesting. We got knocked down for that as well, and so that's something we definitley need to fix next practice.
Next practice, I will be one of the actresses and Micah is doing the filming, so now we will have the experienced people doing the main jobs. So, I hope this will help us out a little. We need to get brainstorming right away, and make sure that our idea is one we can stick with. I really hope that our team can get it together before it's time for the real competition becuase so far, we haven't been doing so well... Since this will be our third practice, we need to do extra good because we have been escalating downward since the first practice, when we should've been escalating upward! See you guys next class!!!
