Multimedia & Technology
In the past several weeks, in multimedia and technology essential, I got to learn many new interesting things and I was very enjoyed.
The first topic that I learned was about digital storytelling. Digital storytelling is just to tell or describe stories in many digital ways. It can be animation videos, documentary, news articles, pictures, audio that tell the story. What makes a good story is Pixar story structure. Here is the link that has the best explain what Pixar story structure is (Credit: Bloop Animation). At the bottom of this article is an example of a Pixar story structure that I made.
Dream Always Comes True
Once upon a time, there was a beginner YouTuber named Pisal. Every day, he always brings his small camera with him to do some vlog for his YouTube channel. One day, he met his favorite YouTuber that had 5 billion fans named Rayuth and then, Pisal got a big shoutout in his idol’s video. Because of that, Pisal became more and more famous on social media. Because of that, he became wealthy and became one of the most famous YouTubers in the world and he wanted to get 1 billion fans but he still used his old small camera. Because of that, Pisal wanted to buy a new $1 million camera, and he thought, “Well, eeny mini miny moe, that is what I want to do”. Because of that, he went to the camera store and bought a camera with diamonds surrounding it. Because of that, Pisal was so happy and his video just got so many more views and more popular. Until Finally, he got his 1 billion subscribers and his dream came true!
The next lesson was about some composition tips to take better photos and those are Straight Horizon, Rule of Thirds, head room, Lead Room, Symmetry, Depth, Frames and Leading Lines. I also took some photos but sadly, it got lost. So, the pictures below are what my friends took.
The next lesson was also about photography yet it was mainly about exposure. What is exposure? Exposure is the amount of light that reaches the camera sensor and it determines how light or dark the photo will be. There are three things that affect exposure. They are shutter speed, aperture, and iso. Shutter speed is the length of time the shutter opens to allow light in. It measures in fractions of a second; example: 1/20, 1/100, etc. If you double the shutter speed, the amount of light comes in also double. It also affects how motion is captured. Aperture is the size of the opening in the lens through which light enters the camera and it measures in f-stop values; example: f/1.8, f/11, etc. For ios, it’s about how sensitive your camera is to light.
After that, we learned about different types of camera shot. They are, long shot, full shot, medium shot, close up, extreme close up, high and low angle, eye level, tilt, over the shoulder and bird’s eye view. Pictures below are what my teammates and I took.
The last lesson was about videography. I got to know how to use a shotgun microphone, lavalier microphone, tripod, type of shots (B roll, A roll) and how to take a good video.
After a wonderful round of multimedia essential, I got so many new knowledge in my brain and I can’t wait to learn the next lesson! Thank you for visiting my portfolio! Have a beautiful day!
