Hey everyone! This week I will be doing a free blog on the Olelo Youth Exchange banquet. The banquet was this week Thursday, and Kolten, Napua, Taylor M, and I went. My water conservation PSA and my Dennis Fujimoto news story was nominated. Kolten's PSA was nominated, and Napua and Kolten's Drag Racing Sakamoto's news story too. We took and early flight to Oahu and arrived earlier than the banquet, so we went to PBS Hawaii's studio and got a tour from Nikki. After, we went straight to the banquet, and they served a brunch and starting announcing the first place winners. The banquet was quite long because they announce winners for elementary school, middle school, and high school, and there are many different categories. None of the videos that we were nominated for, won first place, but at least we made top 3 out of all the videos entered in that category. Even though we did not win first place, it was a really great experience. Since our flight didn't leave until 7:30 we went to the mall and got to see Kaycee! She was my partner last year, and it was great to catch up with her. If you want to see my videos that were nominated, I will put a link to watch them below. Thanks so much for reading!

Hey everyone! This week's blog is going to be a fourth quarter project update. I am on the videography team, and I am working with Taylor Nishimoto. We are assigned to do stories on Ono Pops and the Kealia Farm Market. In this blog post I will be listing the things we have done for our project, what I will be doing to make progress, and what are some obstacles in our way.
Some things that we have done is interview Ono Pops, and transcribe their interviews. We also finished our five points and started working on our script for Ono Pops. I also scheduled another day that we can go back to film more b-roll of Ono Pops. For the Kealia Farm Market video we have made questions to ask them, and Taylor has been trying to get in touch with the person in charge. We haven't gotten an answer back and we've been contacting him everyday.
To make progress we will make sure we get an answer from the Kealia people. Once we get that interview done we will make sure that it gets transcribed right away. Then we will work on the script and edit. For Ono Pops, we will make sure multiple drafts of our script are made, and that we start editing very soon.
One big obstacle that is in our way is not getting an answer from the Kealia Farm Market people. We have been contacting them a lot, and the first time we emailed them they replied, but they haven't replied to see if the day we want to interview them is alright with them. Without that interview we can't transcribe, work on the script, or edit.
Those are some things we've done, what we will do to make progress, and some obstacles that are in our way. We really need to make sure we get moving on these videos. I hope you guys liked this week's blog! Bye!!!
Hey everyone! We just came back from STN last week, and in this week's blog I will be talking about my favorite three moments from the trip. I loved the closing ceremonies, Disneyland, and Universal Studios.
One thing that I loved at STN was the closing ceremonies. It's a lot of fun because they play loud music and everyone is so excited and dancing. Plus, that's when we find out if we won any awards. When you win something, you feel amazing and that's when you know that all of that work payed off.
Another thing that we did that was super fun, was going to Disneyland. My favorite ride was either California Screaming or the Grizzly Bear ride. It was so much fun going on all of those rides and the churros there are so good! We also went on Splash Mountain, Hyperspace Mountain, and Thunder Mountain. While we were there we also did this workshop/tour where we learn about how they create Disney movies. On that tour we got to ask Crush the turtle from, “Finding Nemo” some questions, and the animated character would actually answer. They also taught us how to draw Eeyore from, “Winnie the Pooh”.
The last thing that I am going to write about is going to Universal Studios. All of the rides were a lot of fun. My favorite was the Harry Potter ride, but the other rides were fun too. Like the “Simpson’s” ride, the “Jurassic Park” ride, and the “Transformers” ride. The tour was really cool too because they had us wear 3D glasses and made the bus shake and everything. They showed us how they did a fake flood and a fake fire. We got to see cars that they actually used in “The Fast and the Furious” movies.
My three favorite things we did on the STN trip was the closing ceremonies, going to Disneyland, and going to Universal Studios. Look at my classmates blogs to see what their favorite moments were. Thanks for reading! Bye!
