The day had began… very dark and dreary. Until I sat upon the chair of youth and began unscrambling the stories of the world onto a Windows 7 computer. (Even though Windows 8 was brought out a year ago.) So it was till then the amazing Mr Dunning had inspired me through the world of camera work. Today I took very stunning photos of the team and recorded my very own report about cruelty in zoos. However the most productive time of the day was when I had stolen headphones from Matt, and subsequently forced him to create beautiful memes of each and every one of us. Today I had also performed as weather reporter and rubbed my hands against a blank green screen (a highlight of the day.) But it wasn’t until I had taken a picture of purple tie and checked shirt (Eden) that it was complete… because then I could leave… BBC school report has been an amazing experience and a great way in which to experience different aspects of media. It really has given me a deep insight into the world of news reports and has been one of the best ALDs yet.
‘Twas a damp spring morn when I, Eden of the Flim, appeared at this school.
And thus began my fifth and last outing as a member of the School Report team. And thus begins this post.
As a member of the Film-Stuff duo, I started my day by reading up on films which would be coming out next year, and I can safely say that now’d be a good time to find a job to pay for your disgusting addictions. Oh, and to pay for cinema tickets. Those too. Ahem. Right! The films! So… I wasted a good hour or two by reading up on films I’m never going to see. I also wrote a script, but for legal reasons, you can never see it. Never. Not ever. Nope. Leave now. Not gonna see it.
Fine, here it is:
Jake X-MEN! X-MEN EVERYWHERE! OH GOD! OH DEAR GOD!
Eden And now, the weather,
Jake There are ducks sitting under a pond. They are reading books about geese. A war is coming. A brutal, brutal, brutal war.
Eden Makes odd trumpet sounds
Following that mistake, we went onto filming, which was an unrivalled travesty. You’ll get to enjoy that mistake when it’s finally uploaded. Until then, I’ll amuse you with some more stories of the day: We created a new game called “Mosh Attack”. It’s brutal, we knocked over Georgia. It’s cool, no one was hurt much. Matt L wore a green tie. It looked dreadful, so Matt helped him out. Oh, Matt, my beautiful cat-lord, with his solid gold hair-studs…
Kacey ordered Matt to re-write his blog post, and then she ordered Georgia to write it for him. I’m pretty sure it’s not gonna get done. Ever.
Well, that’s all from me. Ciao.
Today has been… interesting to say the least. The filming got done very early this time so I had a lot of time to look at odd news headlines and write a few of them up for the blog. We had the computers to gather all the information for our main news reports – I did the missing Malaysia Airlines flight. We made various GIFs of various people (our favourite being the one of Matt in the field). There was a bit of dead time where nobody was really doing anything, but overall it was a very enjoying sort of day. It’s going to be my last school report as next year I will be too old to do it again, and I’m glad that it was so enjoyable.
After we all got there [the school], we started by selecting which story we would do – I chose a story about a girl who was abandoned by her young mother at a Burger King but found her mother after 28 years having sent an image out through social media. I researched the story and found all the relevant information I could. We then went and did our reports after learning the scripts to a certain extent. It was quite hard doing the report but I thought it went quite well and by lunch everyone had finished. After we finished we had a little break and a joke while the editing team got to work. After we ate the editing continued and we set to writing our blogs…
We arrived promptly at 8:16 ready for an 8:30 start to the school report day. Right from the start, the banter was flowing, disses and cusses flying to and fro. Immediately we split our roles and decided what story each of us will report, from massive international stories to local stories and heart-warming tales. I went to BBC to find out all about the Ukraine crisis to give the reader a solid idea of the conflict as well as updating people on the latest stories, in this case Obama’s most recent reaction. We joked and had a good laugh with teachers and students alike so we could both have an enjoyable time and give an informative and successful report at the same time. We all went off to do our reports, mine went splendidly and I was flawless! Then we went to lunch and after we wrote our separate blog explaining what we did throughout the day. Mine went like this…
