If you’re taking care of business, take care of your business and nothing else. Especially in public bathroom, because I don’t know if the person next to me is talking on the phone or to me. Don’t worry, I wasn’t really using the restroom while shooting this scene.

Today, I missed class, because of the stupid choices I made the night before.

With this one, I wanted to shoot inside the house just in case I got sick again. Since I had an extra actor (my dog) I decided to use her. Since she only has three legs, she has a very restricted diet. If she gains any weight, her legs wouldn’t be able to support her. So, it’s very important that she’s not fed under the table.

I thought the lighting was pretty nice because of the open window wall. I was worried about being too bright because I’m still not too sure how much lighting a scene needs or not. I also keep forgetting to change white balance and the exposure before I shoot, a bad habit of mine.

Well, I finally got to a video where I got to be two characters. I wish my acting skills were a lot better, but this was an “ok” attempt. So please excuse my lack of acting skills. I can’t explain how embarrassing this was for me to shoot and watch the final product.
I watched the notebook not too long ago, and I guess I got my inspiration from one of the scenes.
A lot of girls, including myself are really indecisive when it comes to choosing a restaurant. I can really see how annoying it could get.
I really want to do more of these because I think I can make it work and better. Also, I’m hoping to be more comfortable seeing my awkward self on screen.

Not only is throwing away food is wasting food, it’s also wasting your money and fridge space. I actually bought these strawberries before I started the creative habit. I knew I wanted to do a wasting food video because my sister is horrible with keeping track of her groceries. So, I had to look at these moldy strawberries for couple weeks and it felt great throwing them out.

One problem I did notice in this video is that some of the shots were not in focus or was focused on the wrong parts. Maybe, I should get a life-size cut out of myself so it would be easier to focus.

Road rage! Everyone has one, even if it only comes out once a year.

For my 11th bad habit, I filmed inside of my car while driving. I drove around for 15 minutes to get driving shots, with a tripod secured onto my seat. Then I shot myself for 20-30 mins with different angles and such. I was worried that my camera was going to fall off of the dash board because nothing was securing it in place.When I was filming myself, I saw Dylan riding his scooter on OSU campus (fun fact).

With this video, I had too much things recorded that it took longer to edit. I wanted to start by showing the roads and people driving, then showing my road rage. Because of the limited time, I thought it would be best to just show me, and my anger towards other drivers.  Also, since it was so early in the morning, there weren’t a lot of drivers and pedestrians.

Over competitiveness can be the ace in a team, or a black hole. I think they usually take the fun away from it all. My friend didn’t really have to act because she in real life is super competitive.

With this video, I borrowed a steady cam from my friend to shoot the action shots. It was much harder than I expected. First, it was really heavy and trying to move it where it looked smooth was challenging. Also, I couldn’t manually focus while I was shooting because, well, I’m not too coordinated while running. But, I would like to get better with a steady cam because it will deliver nicely, once I can master it.

Is it possible to be sanitary at a picnic/cook out? Maybe but probably not.

I brought my camera just in case I thought of something during this cook out. Then I thought to have the griller “accidentally” drop something on the floor and put it back on the  grill. I was shooting and forgot to change the white balance, so I had to shoot it again.
