Podcast Reflection

My class has done a lot of podcasts. Podcasting is like another way to tell a story or information, podcasting is really fun but challenging my partner is Jason. We’ve done 2 podcasts together and are working on our 3rd. There are some different steps to making podcasts, I will give a brief run through of all the steps.

  1. Come up with a topic
  2. Come up with a script
  3. Start practicing
  4. Start recording
  5. Get editing
  6. Upload the episode to where all the class episodes are
  7. Repeat

Adobe Spark

Using Adobe Spark is fun because like wevideo it does similar things but it gives you template options. For example you can choose to do a poster or a video it has posters the size instagram has you post and the same with twitter and facebook. It’s also fun to use because I can choose  depending on the template I can choose a picture or video to put in my poster or video from my downloads or the free photos and videos on adobe spark. And it saves automatically! So I don’t have to take a minute to save it I know a minute is not a lot of time but a second is less time than a minute. You should try Adobe Spark some time soon to make your next video. (or click on this link)

Rube Goldberg Making The Video

Making the video was harder than it looked.  There were a lot of steps.  First, I had to get the photos and video clips off my phone and on to a computer.  It was tricky because they were large files – it took a long time.  Then I had to select the ones I was going to use in the final video and put them in the right order. I also wanted there to be a title slide and music to go with my video – that took more time too.  I ended using music that is available on iMovie.

One of the hardest parts was croping videos to make sure it looked and sounded good.  Adding the music was also hard.  Beacuse the timing had to be “on the dot”.  It took a bunch of tries to get it until I was happy with it.  In my video I used a combination of still photo, time lapse video and normal speed video to help make it interesting.

The video is 2 minutes and 36 seconds long. It shows me building the machine, couple of the my fails (NOT ALL) and then a successful run. In the end, I am happy with the final product because it met my expectations.

Rube Goldberg decision making

Oh man we had a lot of decisions being made during our Rube Goldberg  project so far.  For  example I had to decide what my goal was going to be I chose to ring a bell. Then I had to decide my steps which was hard because I needed at least 8 steps but I got through now we have to decide what order they would be in but I got past. I got the idea from just thinking and thinking and research. I choose a lot of steps that did not work and in fact I decided to change my goal to getting a ball into a goal. I choose the steps I choose because I wanted the machine to be complex so I got a higher grade.

The process for making my podcast was really hard and we had to first decide what topic we were going to talk about. Then we had to write our script and rehearse a lot so we could get it right when we recorded.  After that we recorded and that’s when our practice cane in handy. it was hard to get a sound box and a microphone because there were 20 of us and only 4 microphones so we had to record and the give the tech to other people. last but not least we had to edit and fix our recording. There some challenges during this period of time one was getting a good recording, another one is that we had to add music, and finding the right  music that we liked and also getting our script long enough we had to make sure our script was at least 2 mins long. In conclusion there were multiple steps that we had to finish and challenges along the way but we’re excited to make more podcasts!
