Ignite Talk

I think that My ignite talk was a success because I managed to deliver my speech with the slides successfully.

First I had to write a script for the speech and I did it for Home Learning. We were also given time in class (Steps for Success). I had a few problems with the speech so I had to re-do the whole script. After a few more minor edits, I managed to finish my script and print it out.

Writing the script was one thing but filming was a whole different problem. First, Nic and I went to a staircase to film and it had a really bad echo. Secondly, people kept coming up and down from the green roof and they kept getting into our shots. After a good half an hour, we managed to get a good take and went back to the classroom to get started on editing. As you may or may not have expected, we did it wrong. Nic and I used Photobooth instead of Quick Time Player. We couldn’t edit a video on photobooth and we had to go back to the echoing staircase to film for another half an hour.

After Nic and I finished filming, we went to work. I was editing and Nic was writing his script. (Because he was in Japan for two days into our school week) I was done editing and went on to victory! (I think).
