Taming of the Shrew Stop Motion Induction Scene Project

In the induction of the play “Taming of the Shrew” by William Shakespeare, a homeless man with the name of Christopher Sly is drunk in a bar. He is arguing with the hostess refusing to pay for his drinks. But when he passes out, a lord finds him and thinks of a brilliant prank to play on him. He is taken to the castle and is dressed up as a king, and is convinced that he is a king when he wakes up. Some players come to the castle and ask to give a performance in exchange for shelter and food, which is where the inset starts. In our recreation of the induction in a stop motion video, we used the app iMotion. The process was really simple, all we did was take numerous pictures after every little movement of each character. After we did voice over, it resembled a movie. Soha, Jaya, Raiyah, and Darrion were in our group. We started off with a written plan on paper. We figured out the characters, backgrounds, and props. Then we equally split the work to create the stop motion video, which was difficult because we did not have Lego for the main characters. We overcame that problem by drawing our characters. Although the outcome was not as professional as we wished, it still turned out nice. We learned how to use iMotion, and we also learned how to upload videos onto YouTube and add music.

Space interview

Today in science 9, my class mates and i had an interview with someone who works on mars projects full time to answer some of our questions. We connected through video chat, and i really loved this method because it was like having a real conversation, even though she was in another part of Canada! We asked her many well thought out questions, the they were all generally answered successfully. An example of some of the questions we asked are:

– How did you become interested in this field of work?

– What planets other than Mars are capable of sustaining life?

– Can Mars rovers be brought back to Earth?

– How much does a Mar rover cost?

– What do you do specifically?

All of us understood what was going on and the questions were answered quite  thoroughly. I learned that video chat is a great method to contact someone, and I look forward to using it in the future. I learned quite a few new facts about space, and about some of the cool programs we have here in Canada.

I am not sure why the pictures turned out sideways, but i am sure you get the just of it.
