I think my intro to the story was pretty well done. It told a little about what my story is about without spoiling anything and i think that it was a pretty good hook. I tried using colons, which I rarely use but was able to use it correctly. Another thing i did well was how I left cliff hangers at the end of the paragraphs to engage the readers more. I know that I didn’t follow the Hero’s Journey very well. I couldn’t think of anything that can be used as a Hero’s Journey in my life, and besides, if I tried to use something that wasn’t this interesting, I wouldn’t have enjoyed writing this at all. I also rambled on about unnecessary details before getting to the main part of the story, and should also work on the “show don’t tell” part.
Chris Mann and his brother Thondee Mann owns a company. On the verge of being fired, Thondee Mann decided to murder his brother, Chris Mann. Now James Cordeen is on the case. I played Thondee, Jesse played James, and Ben played the suspect, Mr. Ben. We took a long time to create a story, which I took the lead in making. We had ideas on earthquakes, alcohol, the navy seals, but in the end, we came up with this story. We started filming on Monday, where it was raining. The rain screwed with our plan and we were not able to go outside to film the scene of the murder. We messed around, but we were able to finish filming most of the inside scenes. Jesse and I went to a friend’s house and had him to help us, and there we were able to finish filming my scenes. Tuesday stopped raining, so we went outside to film. We finished everything in half an hour. I’m doing the editing so I will edit everything at home. I had a difficult time editing since my software kept crashing, so I ended up staying up until 5am. But after I woke up the video corrupted, that caused me to stay home to re-render the video. It was a tight schedule, but I managed to upload it before class started.
