In my video editing class my senior year we had a snow day and blizzard in which it snowed a ridiculous amount. So as a class it was determined that we would make a blizzard video. I decided to take this type of approach because I felt like the mellow way I presented it works really well for the type of footage I got. I’m really proud of some of my footage and how I was able to get it from some unique angles. It was challenging to try and shoot footage from a few different locations but I had someone to drive me around while I filmed which made some really nice shots. I would spend more time on shots outside of the car definitely, and try and get even more steady shots.
This is my first Video Editing project of 12th grade. It is a small moment video about my cats with various shots of them set to music. I originally planned on narrating this instead of doing a music video but then I came across this song and new that I had to make it a music video. The part I am proudest of is using a relatively unknown song as well as getting shots from the same level as the cats during shooting. It was hard at first to start actually filming but once I did it went really quick and I just whipped my phone out whenever the cats were around. The thing I would spend more time getting shots so I could make them shorter. Then I could include more shots. I hope you enjoy the video!
For my programming final I decided to create a program that simulates one season of football with the option to play more. It has all of the teams in the NFL. How I decided to make this was that I saw that Derek Gunther had suggested a simulation game, and that intrigued me. So I then went and decided to make a Football Simulator. I chose this because I love football video games, and this just seemed like it would be super fun and interesting to write. The Minimum Viable Product (Programmer Terms, it means the least complex version of your program that will still work) of my project would be a simple game. It would have 8 teams, and a very short season. Most of the number’s would just be randomly generated, and that makes it a lot less user friendly also there would be no injuries or training! Some features I would like to add consist of the game saving your overall at the end of a season so you can continue with that team, because if you have an amazing team, do you really want to start over? And the next thing I could add is trading and free agents, you could use this to make your team better or get your favorite player. And the last feature I would like to add is you actually facing the other teams, in my game as of right now you are just facing a team with a random overall. So having you face the other teams woud give a lot more authentic of a feel to the game. The main one I woud like to focus on is the trading and free agent players. I picked this because me and my buddy DC, could find some cool ways to get some players as free agents. This would then make the game more interesting and pay off in the long run. This program has really changed the way I think at programming, it has taught be many things. It has actually made me want to take my time a little more in everything and plan out the best way to do it instead of the quickest. This program has also help me learn that getting help from friends is very useful. My buddy DC has helped me fix a lot of errors and the program would be a lot more behind without his help And I have also gotten help from lots of the other people in this class.
