Hello again everyone, this is Pheng Xiong from AMA’s BALL marketing team. Today, we learned about how to set up the lights, and the different a views of light in a shot. We also reviewed the role of a director while asking bystanders to do interviews for us, as well as other roles including the sound, camera, lights, and anchor. We shot ourselves in film as an example of what we will be doing this coming Saturday on the 11th.

Setting up for the InterviewThursday, July 9th 2015

Hi, this is Choua Lo, and I will be blogging about what I did today with my team. First off, starting from this morning we set up the equipments for the video interviews. The video interview was practice for this upcoming Saturday. We basically did that for the whole day while switching departments from audio, camera, director, anchor, lighting, and bystander. We interviewed about Bicultural Healthy Living, and we asked two simple questions for the bystander.

Using the H6

Using the H6

Hi, this is Choua Lo, and today I learned more about how to use the Canon, and I also took pictures of my group while they were drawing and animating their pictures. Michael and I took pictures of my group from different varies of angles around the space and room we had. We both were taking photos while the others were animating and drawing their photos.


Today Wednesday June, 23 we learned about film making with Mr. Chou. He showed us a very beneficial presentation about film making and I learned things I’ve never known before like how an image is not really moving and how lighting is very critical in film making. We also worked with adobe photo-shop and created some cool flyers. We did flyers on health and obesity awareness. We are using those concepts because we believe obesity is a very big problem in our society today and we wish to have everyone informed about the risks and dangers that come with that one dangerous “donut”  that implements more harm than you think it does.

The recent release of the Star Trek: Into Darkness movie has been garnering a fair share of attention, with fans looking forward to the revitalization of the franchise, and actors potentially benefiting from their exposure in major roles. There has been plenty of talk over Benedict Cumberbatch’s casting as Khan and his potential to play villainous characters, but much of the popular press doesn’t seem to touch on the larger implications of Cumberbatch’s casting.

They were all getting drunk last night

when their beer runs out

they don’t feel quite right


it’s the end of a beginning

you don’t seem aware

the whole time you think you’re winning

But you’re wrong

all the while it’s slowly killing you

your head aches

your hands shake

you don’t know what your gonna do


it takes over your brain

and since you gave in

it’s the end of the game

Who:A young neglected girl in her room

what: Alone  and miserable in her body

Where: positoned in her bedroom from the weight

When:On a beautiful sunny day

Why: The strugggle of every step due to the overload of her weight
