Hey guys! So for today’s blog post I’m going to talk about a movie called The Theory of Everything. I only watched the movie trailer but I can already tell that this movie is so touching. If you don’t know what this movie is about well, it’s about a man named Stephen Hawking. Still confused? Well, Stephen Hawking was a brilliant man who made up the second law of black hole dynamics. He also went through a disease called Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also commonly known as ALS. This disease targets nerves, the spine, and brain. What this specifically does is it makes the muscles stop working. Stephen also had another disease called, Pneumonia. This affected his breathing and had to go to the hospital and get help. His speech was removed while doing this. With his speech gone he had to figure out another way to share his ideas to other scientists. He got a machine made for him which made him be able to share his ideas. This is an extremely touching story that is shown through this movie. You truly have to watch the trailer. I can’t wait to watch this movie. Anyway thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed. Talk to you later, BYE!!!!!!!! :)
Hey guys! So for today’s blog post I’m going do a project update. This is project update is going to be on Nicole and my fourth quarter project. Our video is going to star the song, Little Too Much by: Shawn Mendes. Our topic is going to be about Cyber-Bullying. So where do I think we are? I think we’re on track. And here’s why: 1) we finished our script 2) we have most of our actors/actresses. I do have to say that we still have some stuff to do like, finding our male actor.
The first reason why I think that we are on track is because our script is completed. Our script has the duration of each shot (thank gosh Nicole is a math wizard, because I can not do that kind of math. It would literally take me a year to figure those things out.) And we have all our shots down, and all angles we want to film them in.
The second reason why I think that we are on task is because we have our actress. In a music video, or any other video that needs an actor or actress it is extremely important that you find you actors/actresses ahead of time. I know from experience that if you can’t find your actors and a decent time, you’re putting yourself into trouble.
Sadly, we don’t have our male actor. This song is sung by a male and we don’t have a male actor to lip-sync. This is the thing that doesn’t makes us ahead of the game. I do know that we will have him soon though. We need to get him soon.
So I do think that we are on task but, we have some things to get done in order to make us ahead of the game. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed! Talk to you later, BYE!!!!! :)
Hey guys! So for today’s blog post I’m going to talk about the 2015 version of Cinderella trailer. If you haven’t already seen the original Cinderella then I definitely think that you should watch it. What I like about this movie is the fact that it takes a Disney classic and turns it into more of a realistic movie (actors/actresses act in it.) This movie looked like it took a lot special effects, because of the fact that includes magic. The trailer was also incredible! It shows the magic, and the drama without giving too much away, even though it’s a remake of a movie that everyone knows.
Here’s the trailer:

Hey guy! So as you guy probably know the CKTV students and chaperones came back to Kauai not too long ago. I loved this trip especially because I got to meet so many new people and I roomed with different people. So today’s blog topic is “what are the top three different things I experienced on the trip.” My top three things that I experienced on this years’ trip are 1. I got to meet my pen pal 2. the STN dance 3. going to the Petco Park.
The first thing that I really liked on this years’ trip to STN was getting to meet my pen pal. This year we got to meet our pen pals at the Old Spaghetti Factory. I sat next to Nicole and across of my pen pal, Alex. Alex was really nice and very social. I’m glad I got to meet her!
The next thing that I really enjoyed was the STN party or dance. This was my first “dance” because STN didn’t have this last year. I really liked this dance because I danced a lot and there was some fun activities on the side. Also this was a big bonding moment for all of the CKTV students. People hung out with other people that they wouldn’t normally hang out with, and some of us exchanged dance moves (Alaysia).
The last thing that I really liked on this trip was going to Petco Park. I’ve never been a big fan of baseball, but I really liked seeing all the behind the scene things they do. This place also had some history to tell like, the building that is the gift shop, is the Western Metal Supply CO. and that building is still has it’s original bricks, windows, and more! Don’t you find that SUPER COOL!!!!
In conclusion I loved this trip. I got to meet new people, go to new places, and get to know everyone better. I also got to hang out with all the 8th graders on their last trip. Thank you to all the chaperones, Mr. M, and to all CKTV students. You guys is what made this trip so special and I will never forget it. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed! Talk to you later BYE!!! :)
Hey guys! Today was a special day! It was the closing ceremony!! A lot of people won a lot of different things. Spot feature won 1st place. That was Kaden, Brandon, and Kolten. PSA won 3rd place. That was Nicole, Alaysia, and Angeline. Broadcast won 1st honorable mention. And Film won 1st honorable mention. Everyone was pumped for this years STN closing ceremony. When any Hawaii school and Castaic won we screamed our
hearts out! This year was so fun and I'm glad I spent it with the CKTV Ohana! They made my trip extremely memorable!
After the closing ceremony we took pictures with the whole other Hawaii schools and some individually. After that we sped-walked to the lobby to find Castaic to say goodbye and take a group picture. They were the best!
After saying our goodbyes we said hello again to Fashion Valley mall. I went shopping for two hours and I bought some stuff. We also ate dinner at Cheesecake Factory. I ate a pasta with Alfredo sauce. We stayed there for a good amount of time then left. We went to the hotel room and did a quick briefing session. Later I went up to my room the check the equipment I had with Raine, Micah, Kelli, and Kaycee. After knowing we had all our equipment they left, and that about ends my day. Thanks for reading hope you enjoyed! Talk to you later BYE!!!! :)
Hey guys! Today after getting dressed and eating breakfast most of us went to or first break out session. The first one that we went to is the Hiki No session. This one talked about Hiki No, who they are, and what they do. They also showed Brandon's video! That was a huge plus! After that session we went to was a Nat. Sound packages vs. taped sound packages.
After that we all went to lunch. Later we went to a new session with Andrew Jenks. This was a Q&A session about film marketing and distribution. After that finished we quickly went to the Shhhh did you hear that? session. And the last one that we went to was just watching a video about school and it's safety. It was the a really great quality video and had fantastic points of few.
After that we all took a shower and headed to the party. The party got instantly packed and was SUPER FUN!!! And that about ends my day. Thanks for reading hope you enjoyed! Talk to you later BYE!!!! :)
Hey guys! Today was the day of our music video contest. We worked on this for almost the whole day. I feel that my team worked well. There was no fighting and we all shared our ideas. Once we got into the editing room me and Kelli was behind. We edited and it came out really good. Sadly while we were exporting time was up. Yes I know it stinks to turn in things late, trust me. Me and Kelli felt so bad. We did have support from our team, chaperones, Castaic Middle School, and Kauai High School. THANKS YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!
After that ordeal we went to something called the Middle school mixer. This is where all the middle schoolers meet new people middle schoolers and do a little scavenger hunt in the hotel. This was fun. Sadly my team didn't win.
After that craziness we headed to uncle Don's room so we could eat dinner. I had chicken Alfredo. And at the end of the day we went to the Excellence Ceremony. We didn't win anything, but Waianae won a lot so I'm happy that some Hawaii school won something. That then ended our video. Thanks for reading!!! Hope you enjoyed! Talk to you later! BYE!!!!! :)
Hey guys! Today was the first day of our competitions! Today was the Crazy Eights. If you don't know what Crazy Eights is then here's what it is: you have eight hours to complete either a short film or a broadcast. I was on broadcast today. My team which includes Dalson, Jezlene, and me had to do a commercial. My team was originally PSA, but Mr. M told us that with the topic: Historical San Diego, a PSA wouldn't really work. What we decided to do was to do a commercial of why people should come to San Diego, highlighting all the historical monuments.
I feel like my team worked well together. We didn't argue and we decided on what we should do while sharing all our ideas. And everyone was all ears to what the other person had to say. My team also didn't stress too much which came lead to failure.
It didn't take my team too much time to edit. Thanks to the teams that helped us get B roll like Kaycee, Kolten, Kaden, Alaysia, Nicole, and Raine. THANKS GUYS!!
After turning it in on time we cheered on Castaic middle school which are our best friends. Sadly they didn't make the deadline, but hey they tried and that's all that matters. And after that we walked to The Old Spaghetti Factory with Castaic. I ate Alfredo pasta and hung out with a lot of different people from Castaic like, my penpal: Alex, Hannah, Kayla, and Brock. It was really loud!
Later we walked back to our hotel for the STN opening ceremony. It was so epic and up beat and happy! I LOVED IT!!! Anyway that's what happened today! Thanks for reading hope you enjoyed! Wish Kelli, Kaycee, Raine, Micah, and I luck in our Music video contest! Talk to you later BYE!!!! :)
Hey guys! Today was a very hectic day, I must say. After eating breakfast we broke up into teams and rode the transit to the start of our scavenger hunt. My team was Mrs. Gusman, Kaden, Micah, Napua, and me. We started strong, but alley started to fade because our lack of energy and lack of some sense of direction. I quickly got dehydrated and started to get extremely tired. We had to stop at a pizza place and grab some water. Sorry team for slowing us down a bit. We took a really long time to get to where we needed to go. Speaking about where we needed to go we went to Little Italy, old town, and a harbor in little Italy ( sorry I don't remember the name.) My team, Green day, came in second to the last but hey, it's just a game. We also ran into Waianae High School while doing the scavenger hunt.
After doing all of that we freshened up to meet our pen pals. I finally got to meet Alex! We all exchanged our gifts. I got a mug (yes another mug for my tea), a keychain, a magnet, and a CMSTV shirt. We talked for a little while and met more of CMSTV students. They sadly had to go to dinner before they could roast marshmallows and make s'mores with us. After they left all the CKTV students made smores and talked story for a bit.
That about ends my day! Hope you enjoyed and talk to you later! Wish us luck in competing tomorrow! BYE!!!!!!! :)
Hey guys! Today after getting ready in the morning we ate breakfast at uncle Don's room. I ate yogurt. After eating we all walked to the transit station which is convinently right next to our hotel. We then took the transit to SDSU. Then we took a tour of the campus. Our tour guides were Sammi and the Dr. Sha. Dr. Sha told us about all the majors and minors they had. After that we ate lunch and got some Starbucks. We then took a tour of the dorms, or as they like to call it Residental Hall. They were kind of small.
Next we went to PBS. This place as AMAZING! Their building was fantastic and what they do is just unbelievable. On their radio show they even read the newspaper for the blind or people who can see well. Isn't that just amazing? Also seeing how they do things behind camera and how they operate everything was just plain awesome!
After PBS we went to Fashion Valley mall. I went to Hollister and Bath and Body Works. We all met back at six and ate dinner. I had pizza. We then walked back to the transit station and drove back to the hotel. And that's where my day ends. Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed and talk to you later! BYE!!!! :)
