Last year's STN was really fun. If you ask any of the returning students who went to STN, they will all tell you that it was FUN! It was absolutely AWESOME! Our class traveled all the way to Florida and went to a whole bunch of amusement parks. We wen't to Disney World, Universal Studios, Gator Land, we attended an Orlando Magics basketball game, and a whole bunch of other places. It was so fun! My favorite place would be the Island of adventures. The Hulk roller coaster and the Harry Potter one was pretty intense. Aside from the amusement parks, we also had some educational things. We visited Full Sail University which is a college that teaches all things media. Lasts years STN trip was fun but I am also looking forward to this years trip!
Since I did Spot Feature last year, I probably might want to do Spot Feature again this year since I have the experience with that competition. Spot feature is basically a news story on a person. Its like one of the videos that we are making for first and second quarter. Only except we have 5 hours to finish and turn in the video. 5 HOURS!!! Thats not a whole lot of time. While the other categories get 6 hours. Honestly I think Spot Feature is the hardest competition because you have to actually go out and find your story while in the other categories, you can make up your own stories. So if you are not comfortable with news stories, then Spot Feature may not be the right choice for you!
Even if I don't get into any of the categories I wanted to be in, my main priority would be to rejoin the Film Team for the Crazy 8 competition. The film category it probably the most intense part of Crazy 8. Last years film didn't go as planned because we were in the blind doing that kind of a competition for the first time but at least we finished on time and did our best! But so far, I have made 3 short films which will hopefully play an advantage this year. But for the film team, we will need people who are willing to act and just be the character who they have to be. They can't be shy and just be in it because its fun. They have to be comfortable in front of the camera.
So thats what I plan on doing for STN this year! I hope you guys choose well and sharpen up your skills in the time leading up to April. Thats about it, so until next time, bye!
