Hey everyone, so this weeks blog topic is about the top three challenges that I have faced during this school year in media. I haven't had a lot of problems so far, so I guess that's a good sign, right? Anyways here are three things that I have faced so far; having problems with my memory card, doing voice overs, and finally morning announcements.
Firstly, having problems with my memory card. Whenever I plug or put in my memory card into my laptop, it does not show up. What I mean by that is, there would usually be a picture of the memory card on your desktop when you first plug it in, but of course, it does not show up for me. So I would have to shut down my laptop, and then put my memory card back in and then press "Macintosh HD". I also had to make folders on my laptop to and name them like "voice overs", or "8th grade pics", so I don't lose all of my data. But lucky me, I finally fixed it yesterday.
Secondly, doing voice overs. Doing voice overs are so hard. I know it might sound easy but it isn't. When you do voice overs, the quietest sound could mess it all up. The mic you use for voice overs, picks up every sound, but when i talk and I replay the audio, I'm so quiet. I would put the volume all the way up but you would still barley hear me. And every single time I try to do a voice over, someone just casually walks into the room and they don't ask if your done.
Lastly, doing morning announcements. So I had to work on the computer this week and do titles. Again, I know that sounds really easy, but apparently for me it isn't. There is this keyboard you have to use, and you have to press 'f' every time the directer says "fade on" to switch titles. When we practice I press f every time, but right when we go live and the directer says fade on in the beginning, I press space and I basically screwed everything up.
So that's basically my top three challenges I'm facing in media so far; having problems with my memory card, doing voice overs, and morning announcements. If you are or were in media, what do you think your three challenges will be?
