The Prize

WALT- describe a setting

Pilers, standing glaring at its colourless background.Tall and soldier - like, sweating is it’s part of it’s job and no it’s not because of actual work because that would be in human instead it’s because it has to hold vast terrain of ice that sits above it . The vast piler spreading across the ocean protects the prize that lay behind, the prize that only the bravest of men would know of. The wind curling around the structure, leading the waves to clash against the already frozen piler. Was a human isolated inside or was something else, something a little bit different, something that hasn’t met anyone ? who knew.

Maori language week poster

My favourite bit about this poster that I made was the translations. However maybe I could add a few sentences so it could be more of a challange

pop out art

for art this term we  had to do pop outs for our art and my pop out was the flower
I liked how I painted the table blue to add more effect. however I might have over done it because my background didn't look as I expected.
I can fix this next time by planing it out before I actually do it

Sandy Shore Beach Run

I liked how we used a mascot to add a little more fun 
next time we should have a transparent NCBT badge so it wouldn't cover the background

1 minute movie

Reflection: I liked how we used effects to make the movie sound good overall
next time we should make our voices a little more clear so its  easier to hear
I will do this by using a voice over or going into a clear and not windy area
