Jayden,Lukis,and Billy Martin Luther King

P1:  This week marks the 50th anniversary of the I have a dream speech by Martin Luther King. On August 1963 in Washington DC, underneath the statue of Abraham Lincoln was where he made his remarkable speech. He gave this speech because he was fighting for racial equality so that some day the blacks and whites would live in peace fairly.

P2: Martin Luther King was born on January 15th 1929. He was a lawyer but was also a minister. And he also got stabbed but he managed to recover. Then a few days after  his house got bombed, One day something happened. He got assassinated. He fought for civil rights because there was no peace between white and black.

P3: Back in those days In America it was difficult for the black. because they couldn't sit at the front of the bus or if the was not enough seats for the whites they had to move to the back. Thats why one day Rosa Park confronted the white bus driver saying that she would not go to the back. So what happened was she had to go to jail

P4: In america 1960’s the black people were segregated. Martin luther King was good because he did peaceful demonstrations. Black also boycotted the bus so they lost lots of money.

They all did it until they change the rule of the bus so the blacks could sit anywhere on the bus

movie reflection

The message was about love and explain the song.
The techniques they used were a I pad with a variety of shots including close up and over the shoulder shots. The steadiness was all right but still good. The sound quality was great because they used lots of song. They had good acting that had lots of comedy and getting there at lip sing on time.

The quality was because they didn't have any graphics so they just use the background of there videoing. The flow was good only a couple of times it went bad but it was still good. I think they worked good together and they all did their fair share because they're only allowed 3 people 2 actors and 1 filmier. They also managed to get this movie on time.

This term we were lucky to do some art and movie making I did art because I learnt new thing like a wood print. We have to do wood prints this week its lots of fun. We have to carve a pattern on the piece of wood we get then paint it and put it on the paper. The first color is yellow you have to get a roller then paint it yellow and put it on the paper its looks cool. After the red you have to carve some more pieces out then put dark blue over the yellow then it makes it look even better. Then I got up to color red I had to first carve out some more pieces and color the wood red I rolled the paint on then stuck it on the paper it look amazing. But I haven't finished yet I still have one more color to go Black.

In the holidays my highlight was watching movies I watch about 7 movies, but my favourite movie was the new Wolverine. I also watch the movie’s karate kid, karate kid 2 and karate kid 3.
My second favourite movie I watched was despicable me 2 it was really funny.

I like watching the movie Despicable Me 2 because it had a little bit of action comedy and adventure. First it was about a big magnet taking a secret lab near the Arctic Circle .
So the secret agent company needs Gru to help them find something that was inside the secret lab. So one of the lady from the secret company named lucy comes and gets Gru. Gru was one of the best Super Villains.

The first thing they did was to be a disguise in a mall finding out who took the Mutagen PX-41
So the first person they went to was a Mexican man Gru new it was so they went to his restaurant. They found nothing there But a cheeky chicken that was chasing them.
