Bismillahirrahmanirrahim .

The day has finally comes , our presentations day . Regardless all the sweats , tears , hard works , and time spend , today’s going to be like the judgements day . Yes , despite all we done , with simple words or maybe a cold smiles could kill and erase all the efforts done . Pray hard my girls !

Class start at 9 , but i could not make it on time as i got another class , Arab’s class . So , i’m kind a late that day . Dr Rosseni start the class with mere revision of past year questions , and of course , i’m missed like three quarter of the discussion . Around 10am , Mr Helmi came in . We just knew presentation was just around the corner then .

We volunteered ourselves to be the first groups . Not because we are over confidence , not because we think we’re better , not because we had double thumbs up videos , but solely because we’re matured enough to take responsibilities to be the first . I mean , don’t you think you-go-first-we-not-ready games were lame ?

As expected , our videos received a lots of comments . A I said , ” expected” . So , playing all cool and been taken care of were our strategy , HAHA . But some of the comments do confused me a bit . In my opinion , when we do task like this , the creativity side was ultimately depends on the groups . But , we do received comments from that parts . Are we not allowed to have freedom in creativity ? But , its okay . That ‘s my opinion , when others gives comments , thats mean they were giving their opinions too . I’m not going to be unfair there , everyone have right to speak out their opinions . And PLEASE , sit back , relax and chill , we taking all the comments positively and we going to improved =)

But , i do feel little uneasy feeling when some of our friends making faces when they were asked to help us out with the video . Yes , I used FRIENDS , because they are our friends , and making faces . Can you relate it ? Yes , thats it , maybe they are too happy and grateful to help us out , that’s why making faces like a must for them ! =,=”

Its okay , we wont put unnecessary burden to others . This is our own baby , let us nurture it ourselves . =)

Till then , i’ll update more =D

THE CRYING TREE – AIMAN AZLAN

I wish I could be,
Like the crying tree,
The love that I envy,
Towards Habibi.

My heart is empty,
Emptier than the tree,
Who cried like a baby,
Longing for his company.

The tree cried when he,
Was still in its vicinity,
Not a teardrop do I see,
When he is far from me.

I want to be like the tree,
I want to feel his company,
Though not physically,
But he is present in me.

That was the beautiful poet by Aiman Azlan . I think that was so beautifully narrated that i was so longed to share it with you =) The poet does touch my heart and i do wish it touch yours too . Life is simple but it is always been more than what meets the eyes . For simple example , this video production thingy . It may seem simple , but having to completed it always been more than that . Working extra hours , explore new things , discover new places , knowing your friends inner self was like no kidding , man ! =D  But , i’m glad for the effort made to make this video become real . Like Mahatma Ghandi once said ” Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory. ” I think i had full victory here if effort was taken into account .

Rudimentarily , today is our production day . yess ! Its like in the movies production , when you release something , there’ll be ” in the making of ‘ . Actually , in making these piece , there’s nothing like ‘ day ‘ , we spend dayssss of doing this production . * days of going out to get the raw are not taken into account . Other than days , there’s other things we do spend to complete the video also . But , after all , i do treasure all those moments as every moments is an experience .

I got four members in my group which is Samirah , Zulaikha and Mira and me . Lucky for me , three of our members are all Za’ba-rians . So the others one need to come to Za’ba for sure , HAHA =D . So welcome Mira ! But this is seriously deserve some credits okay , as KKM and Za’ba its like two ends of world . Hope you enjoyed staying with us Mira . For the first day, we gathered all the pictures , videos and informations we got .  Putrajaya, KLCC , Aquaria , Petrosains and Zoo Negara.  Indulge in those pictures sometimes do get me dizzy , i got approximately about 400 pictures in my camera alone . I dont know how it gets too much of photos .   Not all photos are chosen , of course . We tried to chose pictures which resemblance the places we gone the best . We also watched our videos and get sure which parts do we need and appropriate for our video . So , do please check out our photos in the VIDEO , okay ? It is strictly SELF-TAKEN !

Here comes second day .  Basically , we spend the day editing , organising , cutting , and etc etc . Honestly , i do not have specific roles there , i just help where is needed . =) Second day was more chillax ( chill + relax ) as we were kind of try to figure out how we want our videos to be like . Hope you will stay tune with our videos . I do not know what you see from it , but surely we did it with love . And we deliver it to you Dr , with love .

  We decide to use Windows Movie Maker because it seems easier and one of our members said she was kind of familiar with the software . Me , was clueless in this matter . But i’ll try to help and get involved in this stage of production whenever wherever i can . After compile all the “chosen one” , adding effects , editing where needed , adding audio and adds the final touch , taraaaa ! the video was done !   Once it finished, it comes the time we need to click ” publish movies ” My friend do tell me , Movie Maker oftenly like to hang up at this stage . And God yes , as expected, Windows Movie Maker hang . Pray hard girls !  Dont you ever heard that miracle does happen for those who really need it ? It does happen to us . On second try to publish the video , the process turns out to be very okay . We can call it a day at last !

Thank you to all my group members Samirah , Zulaikha and Mira ❤ .

Pumping pumping pumping the adrenalineee ! ><

Alhamdulillah , after going through sweetest arguments , painful who-wants-to bring-us-there seeking moments , the day has comes . Today we’re going to collect the raw material for our video production . I’m going to KLCC , Aquaria and Petrosains . But , first , few  weeks earlier we had spent time together to get the raw from National Zoo . Let’s share about that too , okay ?

A bit about our National Zoo :

Zoo Negara Malaysia is managed by the Malaysian Zoological Society, a non-governmental organization established to create the first local zoo for Malaysians. Zoo Negara is now 48 years old and has matured into a well-known zoo all around the world. We have a total of over 5446 specimen from 476 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish.

Zoo Negara covers 110 acres of land which is situated only 5km from the city of Kuala Lumpur. Over the years, the zoo has transformed itself to an open concept zoo with over 90% of its animals being kept in spacious exhibits with landscape befitting its nature. We are working in making sure that the old zoo concept is changed entirely.

impressive right ? Why don’t you get your feet in there ? =)

Here’s the picture from National Zoo , come come closer , lets the pictures speak !

Today was our last workshop with Dr Rosseni students , Mr Helmi . Technology was never added fun in my life without aching my head , soooo , yeah im nervous , im sceptical , im clueless about today lesson .

 Mr. Helmi begind the class with explanation of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 .  Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 is a real-time video editing software wrapped around the timeline concept, designed to simplify the video production process.  Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 owns the capability to edit video in resolutions up to 10,240 x 8,192 and includes a plugin system that makes it possible to import or export a wide array of media formats.  All of these, together with the 3D editing features gained itself a decent reputation among a wide crowd, from beginners to the sharks in the film industry. In simple words ? This software enable you to edit like a pro with the cool features ! But with one condition , be a pro in terms how to use it . HAHA , phewww ! =,=” its hard to explore the software .

 

After confusing session  Adobe Premier Pro CS4, he recap yesterday’s lesson.  He taught Adobe Photoshop but this time more skills and more applications need to be used.  As we can expect always, image, adjustment, text, dialog, filter, layer and some more were been taught.  Why were world needs Adobe Photoshop ? yes , its beautify the picture . But doesnt real pictures tell real stories ? Just a random question . Who doesnt loves beautiful picture aight ?

The last part of the workshop was Adobe Soundbooth.  This time, Mr. Helmi put a lot af effort by record his own video using his own voice and even find us a proper song to used to learn this software .Learning  Adobe Soundbooth is a lot alot complicated and trickier than other . This is because we need to really listen to the sound , and precisely know where to cut , where to slow , where to emphasize . This takes an ear of musician i tell you . 

At the end of the lesson , we were given our own time to sort out things in group . Me and my group discussed briefly about our storyboards , our gist of ideas , places that we want to choose and etc etc . Even my groups consist only 4 members , and all members are clueless about tech-thingy , but what we can promise you is , you will get the purely honestly works from us . We did the works with loves , and i hope others can see it . ❤ thank you !

howie deee ? how was your day ? or specifically , how was your saturday ? =D

=,=” so many question marks . For this saturday , we going to have workshop . Yessss ! its the day after friday . And yesss , its the day after Putrajaya field trip . Ohhh yesss , we’re bit exhausted . But , fret not , we still can manage to be bushy tailed and bright eyes. =D

I’m sorry i’m late to class , but its unavoidable , there’s NO bus on Saturday and Sunday .  Okay , i’m late and everybody was there plus workshop has already started.  Being late were never beneficial to anyone . So were me , i’m lost about the first lesson . Worsen the condition , i’m clueless about photoshop and that kind of thingy . Luckily , my friend patiently tell me , instruct me what needed to be done , what to click , where to get , how to do . =) thank you !

Generally ,  we been taught some skills in using Adobe Photoshop.  The first session of the workshop been conducted by Mr. Faisal.  He taught us the baby step in editing photo using Adobe Photoshop .  I never used Adobe Photoshop before , so i’m a bit sceptical to learn the skill yet nervous too . People been saying that Photoshop was a bit tricky and complicated in using . What can i say about that , you’ll get the skill if you have the willingness to explore it .  But i fret ! Ohhh , why we need to use Adobe Photoshop on that day . Help me , help me :’)

First of all , we asked to chose a picture and cut it . Then chose another pic , preferably background picture to layer the first cut out picture .Why preferably background picture ? Because we’re amateur , we don’t have the much needed skill and we need to clearly see the process . For me , i chose cute penguin picture . After cut the penguin and disposed the unwanted parts , i layer it on desert picture . Its contradict the penguin actually . In real life , there’s no penguin lives in desert . In fact , no penguin can lives there . Why i chose that ? Because i want to conveys a message that 1st ) life goes on no matter what happen , 2nd) Be strong and 3rd ) Please cleverly adapt yourself in every situation . But , sadly , ehemmm … I didnt save the picture . So , i don’t have it . Thus , i can’t post in here . T.T

 Impressive right ? thats what we can do using Adobe Photoshop . =) But the two later before-after pictures above need more advanced skill of course .

*Another lesson here girls , don’t trust magazines pictures that show super duper hot beautiful girl , okay ? In real life , they’re just like us .

Practical time ! Dr Rosseni asked us to design our own banners . Howwwww ? tsk tsk  T,T .

This time i chose jellyfish pictures . First i chose it because the blue colours contradict my blog theme colour which is black . hewhewhewww ! turns out quite well . But if i got chances , i want to re-design it .

Mr. Helmi’s workshop was Post-production phase so he taught us about skills in video transfer, video editing, audio editing and finalizing our video.  As for video transfer, there are three types of video tranfer depending on the type of video camera :

  • Hard disc transfer
  • Mini disc transfer
  • Tape (miniDV) transfer

In video editing, there are three softwares that we can use :

  • Windows Movie Maker
  • Adobe Premier
  • Final Cut Pro
Compare to all threes, I think the most easier to use is Windows Movie Maker :p  What we going to do in video editing? The answer is :
  • Arrange, change, add, cut and remove video clips
  • Video effects on a video clip
  • Video transitions between video clips
Once we have done with editing video, we need to think about the audio.  Our audio must be suitable with our video so that we can convey the emotions of the video.  There are few types of audio that we can use in our video :
  • Voice
  • Music – to create mood, to control audience emotion
  • Sound effects – used for impact (Audio usage)
Then, for the final part was finalizing our video.  As for PC, we have .avi, .mov, .wmv, .Internet – .mp4, .flv, DVD – .dob, Mobile device – .3gp, m4v.  After he had done with his lecture, he showed us Adobe Soundbooth cs4.  Adobe Soundbooth CS4 is a software to edit sound.  Using this software, we can upload our audio and edit it.  We can cut our audio, change the note, and do a lot more with it.  Sound easy right but for me, it was the most difficult part ever. EVER!
 
 
 
And then, for the final lesson, he taught us how to use Windows Movie Maker.  Yes, its the most easiest but it still difficult for me.  Told you, I’m not good in technology.  I even do not know how to use some functions in Microsoft Word, so you people can imagine now how bad am I when it comes to technology?  Never mind then, so he taught us how to put effects, transitions, audio, subtitle, title and credit to our videos using Movie Maker.  
 
 
 
My brain going to explode . Luckily , we can call it a day already . So , i’ll put big smile for the day !

i need to be patient.
 
to be patient when running everyday errands , while making conversation , while in the middle of problems .
 
Surah Al-Imran (3:120);
“..But if you remain patient and become Al-Muttaqun (the pious), not the least harm will their cunning do to you.”

Surah Hud (11:115);
“And be patient, verily, Allah wastes not the reward of the good-doers.”
