1st Blog updating BAVC progress

Hello! Class has been fine so far. My progress on my film is going fine, though the deadline is getting closer and I need to get some footage. This is hard because everyone needs the  camera equally and we all have to share. Other than that, it is going smooth. I have my shot list done with a storyboard, and working with my script. The next step is to finish my script and start filming. I hope all goes well!

Edna Brewer: This week we taught students the C major scale and how to record the scale to the click on Reason. Students caught on pretty easily the problems students had were playing to the click but after going around giving one on one instruction they caught on.

There's some great topics that people are focusing on this year. I think that they should be kept secret but I dont mind leaking a few of them.

 1. How people are abusing their water rights... yea thats a hard one to grasp but it makes sense. Great topic!

2. San Francisco... This one's for the San Francisco lovers! Tourists, sights, downtown & interviews. Compelling huh?

This was test week at Edna Brewer. On Friday the students were tested on everything that they learned  in class so far. They had to prove that they were able to produce a beat including a Redrum, Matrix, Dr.Rex and a recorded track. They all succeed with very little help! They are working on earning themselves a Halloween pizza party this Friday but it will be based off of they're behavior.
