In English we made a reflection on voicethread about our Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark symbolism presentation. Each person in our group talked about one topic. I talked about which presentation I enjoyed from other groups in our class. Enjoy!

In English class, we had an introduction to moviemaking by looking at different shots and angles. We were in small groups, and I was with Tomoka and Raveena. We filmed three clips, each with a different shot. The first one was a high-angled shot, but it was also kind of a long shot, because we filmed from the top of the stairs. The second clip was a low-angled shot, where Tomoka was standing, and I was filming from the ground. The last shot was definitely and extreme close-up. My friend Rhiannu filmed just my eyes, which were closed, and then I opened them. They looked really big with the camera so close.
In the end it was quite a fun experience, because we got to go out on the roof during class time :). It was also really interesting, because we learned a lot more about it. If you just sat in class looking at a textbook to learn about shots and angles, you wouldn’t understand the concept as much as if you were actually doing it.
