My/Our next step will be... to end the year on a good note. This year I used so many strategies. I used the strategy of recording on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and sometimes Mondays. For civilization, I kept on recording on Wednesdays and editing on Fridays.

I/We got further than I/we had planned because... we have more trickshots and we are learning how to use iMovie better.We usually get 1 or 2 trickshots to go in so we are good with that. Also we will want to finish by next week.

Today I/we had "hard fun" when ... Fawaz and I got some trick shots to go in. We were thinking that we are going to do that each time. We usually get 1 or 2 trickshots to go in so we are good with that. It was hard fun because we had fun playing basketball but we were doing work at the same time.

My/Our next step will be... to get Mr. Whitmer to accept our proposal. Jack and I split groups and now I am with Fawaz and we are doing basketball trickshots. We already did our proposal and now Mr. Whitmer has to accept it. We decided to work together and do it at the same time and that worked.

I am planing on editing the episode I recorded last Wednesday.

Next time we would … finish editing the episode. I am almost done with it. I think that the strategy of editing one week and recording another is really good. I can get a lot of stuff done with that plan. I hope to finish this project soon.
2/24/16
Mr Whitmer showed me a new mic that I can use for recording. Hopefully it will make a diffrence.

3
I/We think... that the new sound quality is good. This strategy of the mic and the box is working better than the earbuds. I am also editing the video really good. I hope to be able to use this mic more.

My/Our next step will be... to upgrade my sound quality. Mr Whitmer has a mic that I can use. Now I don't have to use the headphones. I was thinking that I could do this for the rest of the year maybe.

I want to finish editing my video and post it on Friday

What skills did you use that you already had?

The skills I used were the iMovie editing skills. I knew what to cut. I knew when to cut.These skills were helpful because if I didn't have them, I would mess up the video. These skills are essential for this project because people who don't have these skills wouldn't be able to make video's from iMovie.

My/Our next step will be...

My next step will be to record another video. I was thinking about some stuff and Mr.Whitmer told me to ask Mr. Emmi if he could give me some tips. So he came today and we talked and he asked me some questions about this project. Some weaknesses we noticed is that this may be too long of a game to finish this year.

This week I/we had a breakthrough when ...

I finished episode 2. I will now make another plan and hopefully get it approved. I also learned that I should cut out more than what I am doing right now. I'm thinking that I should record every Wednesday and edit on Friday. The plan has been successful so far because I have gotten 2 videos out in two weeks.

One way I/we connected/collaborated with others was ...

What breakthrough(s) did you have?

I had a breakthrough when Mr. Whitmer finally let me do my first episode. I made a plan which you can find on my proposal for this project. I also have to wait until maybe Monday if I can start recording because something got messed up. The biggest thing that happened is that I get to start recording with QuickTime on mac 11.

Next time we would …

Next time, me and Fawaz are going to start a new project. We are doing around 20 trick shots in Basketball. I am going to go over his house so that we can record over his house, and edit in class. We need to get footage over his house so that Mr. Whitmer can let us keep doing this project.

Friday was a reflection day
10-28-15
I want to get more highlights for my Le'veon Bell highlight video.
2.5
2
My/our achievement was affected by ...

not being able to find highlights with no music. This has been a problem since I started learning I couldn't use any music. This has been a problem for me since the beginning. Also, sometimes I couldn't find any new plays of him. He also got hurt so their will be no more plays of him this year.
10-21-15
I want to make sure my video doesn't get taken down.
3
3.5
One way I/we showed resourcefulness was ...
When I decided to do a different project because when I looked at different highlight videos, it was mostly on one specific person. So I decided to only do Le'veon Bell. I decided to do him because I asked multiple people and the favorite person they told me was him. He has electrifying highlights so it would be easy to find them. Also, he has played for a long time, so he has a lot.
10-14-15
I want to get some more music. I think I have one in mind that's on my proposal page.

This week I/we had a breakthrough when ...

I found out what song I am going to use for my big catches. I also found out some other songs that I could use. I also am going to use an interview from the NFC championship in 2013.
10-6-15
Today I want to get some more clips and edit. I will be adding Big hits, big catches, and big plays all around.

3.5
I/We got further than I/we had planned because...

I didn't expect to get my list and edit. I didn't even expect to get my list done. I also found out how to do lots of stuff. I don't know which music i'm gonna use for my catches though.
10-2-15
Today i want to get a clip and start editing it.

Today I/we had "hard fun" when ...

When I couldn't find what kind of sound I wanted to do. Also, I found a temporary sound for big hits. Although I am not sure how I work it in iMovie 10, I will find out how. i actually did find out how. It was hard to do but I did it.
9-30-15
I am going to try to start the editing. Mr. Whitmer said he will try to get me a mac to use IMovie.

Today was a short class. But I still maneged to get work done. I found out what mac I am going to use. But I didn't get to use it because it was a short class. I looked at some more highlight videos as well.
2/14/12
I am going to try to get NFL highlight video editing teachers, I will try to find a way to make my own channel to make that a teacher.

Today I created a YouTube channel for a teacher. I added 7 videos. There were 4 how to videos, and 3 actual highlight videos.
2/9/12
I am going to do research on highlight videos, by watching highlight videos made by professionals
