Creating Spy Kids

Heyy Everybody!
It's me! (again) Well, today in Tech Trends We watched a ten minute video on how Trouble Makers Studio created Spy Kids 2. It taught me how they only create little parts of the sets to create the full scene. Doing this helps saves Trouble Makers Studio MILLIONS of dollars on each movie. They also showed us that they create most of the movie using technology.

talk to ya later.

My Inspiration IMOVIE plans.

Hey everybody! Well, for tech trends we are creating a project or iMovie about a person who inspires me. For my project Inspiration I have decided to do mine on...
My father.. Bill for my project. He inspires not just me, but other kids around my area. For my dad's job he is a state trooper, and he goes around to schools to help teach the kids to make good choices and not give into the pressures of today's society. I plan on interviewing him after he gets home this Saturday from a Missions Trip to Mexico, one of the other things he does to inspire me. I will use voice over. I will show him and how he inspires the children of our state. Also remember that there are heroes or people that inspire others all around, and most of them don't get recognized in which they deserve, so honor them with just the little of things like; saying thank you, or helping them. Anything will be awesome!

Well, now the my topic, during this week in Technology class is digital imaging a.k.a photography. Now, there is so much with today technology that you can do. But, some easy tips that you can do with just angles and going close up or going far out. Angles, different angles are a great way for you to make you photo different. Also when you take a picture of a person instead of going further out, go in, it will make quite a difference, you may cut off some of the person's face, but it makes a statement. So, those are just some ways to make your pictures make a statement.
