So, as you all know, we have had four STN Practices so far! This was our last STN Practice before STN! I have to say, this was no doubt our best job we've ever done! The audience loved it, and so did Mr. M! It was a comedy about the Worst Vacation Ever. We definitely improved on making the trailer look like a real trailer! Also, we got along well, and we had loads of fun doing it, which I think, is what's most important, other wise, why do this if you don't want to? Lastly, we had a good story, as well as good shots, but there are still a few minor issues that we can fix.
First of all, we have improved on one major issue, which was making the movie trailer look like an actual movie trailer! Although, we kind of just took a couple looks at the iMovie app, and then I just kind of knew what to do after that, so that was good. Our movie title was "The Worst Vacation Ever". We all just so happened to bring props and knick-knacks that fit that background! I also brought make up, and we definitely used that in the scenes! I think it was just the perfect title for where we were at, which was the Hyatt. The fact that this was actually like a movie trailer, totally bumped up our score. Before this, we hadn't done such great job in making this a "movie trailer".
Also, we were successful because we all got along well, as we always do. I think that sees a bunch of time when everyone gets along well, because if you are always fighting, then you won't get anything done! So, this is a great team to work with. Since we all got along well, we had a lot of fun making this trailer, because it was just a perfect comedy! We sure ad a lot of laughs and smiles during them king of this production! We didn't have too many distractions, which caused us to complete the project nearly and hour before turn-in! So, we took the time to make some revisions and improvements. I just hope everything goes the same, or even better during the real competition!
Last, but not least, we had a good story, and as well as some interesting shots, such as the "selfie" shot. There war a few minor things we need to work on though. One of them is to make the acting a little better, by actually making our actions believable. Like for instance, if someone were to fall, we would need to make it look like it was really bad in order for it to seem like the worst vacation ever. Other than that, we need to make the titles more interesting and fun, so that it is eye-catching. I will have to learn how to do that sometime… Overall, I think we did a pretty good job compared to all the other practices we had…
I feel pretty good about this last practice. I'm glad that we did what we did because it left me confident for the STN convention! We just need to stick to the plan, and that way, we will do good during the real deal… We are competing against way more people this year, so it's going to be harder to place! With that being said, we must work extra hard to get the job done, and get it done with excellence! I am so excited to go to Florida! hopefully, we don't get all stressed out in the competition, and just have fun while we're doing it! STN is not far from this point
