Minecraft Blog Post (Jungle)

Rainforest is a tall jungle and there are many rain during the whole years. Some plants grow on other plant to reach the sunlight. Many animals competing for food, many animals adapted to eat a particular food. The tropical rainforest was found in Asia, Africa, South America Central America, Pacific Islands and Brazil. I think the house is made it by the tree. In Minecraft, I made my house with the spruce wood planks.  (mostly). I made the bride that can across to the another tree house. I made a good roof that can not be wet my house.

I felt good doing Minecraft, making my house in jungle because I feel like I’m in the jungle having a tree house. I never made any tree house in real life nor Minecraft so it was fun making a tree house so I chose a jungle. Minecraft was good to do rather than drawing because it’s more exciting to play video game and it also give more idea to use the items. I would like to use Minecraft for project in feature because I enjoy while I play and I can bring someone to join and help. I also thought that it also fun for fighting with other people using mods.

Tutorial Video: Creating a Solution

Intro

So far, we made our own tutorial video. What I learned is how to make create good video while we’re taking. I had fun during this lesson and I can’t believe this is our last unit. Well I had fun all the time during the design class and this unit was my best. Even I got the low score I don’t really mind because it was a great unit.

Connect

I think my tutorial video was good because I made everything simple, had a subtitle and used side by side when I was teaching how to do it. However, I had a some bad parts like not talking with a clear voice or forgetting to zoom to the important part. For example,  I said “click to the speech bubbled marked thing” instead of being more specific. This was kind of my option but I also didn’t do” the fast and slow motion. I changed many parts from my storyboard. I quit the transition because it didn’t fit it to my video. I changed my topic to iMovie Side by Side because when I was taking my video I only talked about Side by Side.

Extend

My new ideas that I got that extended my thinking in a new way was adding subtitles to my video because I was concerned that I was not fluent and wanted my listener to understand my message. Before this I never considered the listener’s point of view.

These people are that I comment on

Challenge

My challenge is when I give a tutorial without reading.  I am not fluent and that is  hard for the listener to understand my message. It was also challenging because it was my first time using Final Cut Pro. I usually use iMovie to create a video. I still have a question for the iMovie and Final Cut Pro which is how to join the clip that is split.

Conclusion

I had fun during creating video. I should improve more with the talking because I was not fluent. I could improve my talking by more practice what I’m going to talk. Next time, I should use iMovie because iMovie was easier than Final Cut Pro.
