It’s uncommon to find such an amazing teammate like Ryley. Her problem solving skills are out of this world when it comes to the work field. I was lucky enough to work alongside Ryley in my Film class. Ryley would give me tips and tricks on fixing my film projects any time I asked. Ryley is big on teamwork and problem solving. In one of the film groups we were in, we were short one member. She took the role of the missing member, and worked long and hard to fill in both parts in our group. Even with all this pressure on her in school and home life she always is so reassuring. The last thing Ryley would do is ruin someone’s day. Any one out there would be lucky to work alongside Ryley.
Employers want people who are confident in their talking skills, they also need someone who is good at storytelling and persuading (especially in sales). And most importantly they need someone who is dedicated to their job as an employee.
My main experience in the work field is babysitting. I have babysit since I was 13, and during the summer time I consistently babysit multiple times a week. I have also cleaned houses and cars for many different families.
I am currently a High school student at Capital High School.

I think the film is funny, but we could have utilized out time a lot more then we did. We also could have done better with us trying to make a film more scary.
POST-PRODUCTION – REFLECTION
21st Century Skills
Ways of Thinking (Creativity, Innovation, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving)
We ran out of actors so me and others played multiple actors for our film.
Ways of Working (Communication & Collaboration)
We had a group chat where we all communicated on all the things we needed done. We also used Trello to inform each other on the jobs we finished.
Tools for Working (Info & Media Literacy)
I used Ed Blogs and Trello, and youtube. Youtube helped me learn about how to write better. Trello helped me know what I needed to do next when it comes to what I film. On Ed blogs it shows my teacher what i was doing, and keeping track of the progress that I have done.
Ways of Living in the World (Life & Career)
These 2 months helped me know how to time manage more, and make something good out of very little resources, and time.
Reactions to the Final Version
I thought it was funny, but my face looked terrible in all the shots, the camera is very focused. But it was really funny to see how I was most of the actors in our film.
Self-Evaluation of Final Version
I think the script was okay, it wasnt the best ive done, but I wished I had more dialog in the film.
Grammar and Spelling
It is not the best because I dont have auto correct.
deep space and flat space Limited space is a specific combination of deep and flat space Ambiguous Space The Film Frame Aspect Ratio The Digital Frame Aspect Ratio The Screen Aspect Ratio Surface Divisions use measurements like halves and thirds Contrast depicts settings
Line and Shape
Controlling lines like patterns in the backgrounds and shapes and objects in the room The more forward or back and shape edges make a big difference in how people interpret the film quality and focus are commonly used for serious situations.
Reflective Control (Art Direction) Incident Control (Lighting) Exposure (Camera and Lens Adjustments) using a scale of black to gray to white heavy shadows are shown to show more of a serious
when a movie or show has a flat neon color and no dept to the film it is most likely a comedy when it consists of the colors black white or gray it is most likely a serious film.
when a character goes left they are typically the antagonist (in western movies) and if a character goes right it’s a good character or protagonist
a constant pattern shown in the film (not just music wise)
how do I make a character look unusual or have a paranormal aspect
the “possessed” character has his eyes widen and uncomfortable laughs. When he walks or makes facial expressions it’s very stiff and routine-like.
how do I get the facial expressions right?
The face doesn’t look the typical relaxed. In the first clip, the character has a very stiff but sad face. His eyes are wide and very red.
why this movie?
“Get Out” has an amazing representation of having hypnotized/unusual looks and movement. Wich is what I need to know in my film when characters start acting weird. And almost every demonic horror film includes possession in their stories. But this one has a nondemonic feel to it, in explaining how it’s different with their movements.
you get lost in the story because of entertainment and being in the flow
storytelling is joke telling
humans are born and live for stories and cross the barriers through time
give a promise
the narrator is an inviting invitation
Make the audience figure it out
people are smart enough to know that they don’t just want over explaining
has a problem
the main character has “an itch” and a want to live or do something
they need problems because life really does have problems
stories die when it is just good or bland or like a straight line
envoke wonder in other people
the whole point of stories is to change someone
use what you know
values and user experiences, and use what you already know
that stories are important and a necessity for human growth. learning from adults and peers means a lot. So no need to over-explain about the stories because humans’ minds already know to solve things. Use what you know about the brain and make information envoke and put wonders into others.
