Dear Darry,
        Its Pony boy, I am sending you this letter because I wanted to check in with you. Right now I am working at the hospital to help people when they are hurt or sick. Right now I have 12 and I am having to work a lot. How are Two-Bit and Steve doing? I herd that Two-Bit is now working at a different Job. Do you know what job he is working at? Is he happy with his new job? I was wondering if you are doing well? If you want to you can send me a letter back but you don't have to. How is Soda doing? How are you doing?  Are you and Soda still working at the same jobs? I just got a present from Steve and he gave me a lot of stuff I don't even know what it is. If you know what the stuff he sent me please send me a letter back. One of them if a duck but has funny looking clothes.Another one he sent me is a funny looking cowboy with a hat that looks nothing like a cowboy hat. So you know what I am talking about, Stuff I don't even know about. Do you know about the person that stole from the bank? he was a friend of mine and someone thought it was Two-Bit. Well it looked nothing like Two-Bit. By the way Two-Bit just came in the hospital to talk to me. I wonder why he would come in just to talk to me. Well a lot is going on today, so I have to keep on going to check on people. Can you tell Soda that I am still thinking of him. I don't want him to think that I am not thinking of him. If i were Steve he better think about what I like not just the weird stuff that he likes. He has a bad habit of just thinking of himself  not any one else. Hey, by the way has Randy talked to you lately because he just talked to me today. He said he is so happy of me for getting a good job like this because he said this is a hard work job and I agreed with him. If I were Randy I would be having a bad life because he does not like hard jobs. I just had a few people come and donate a few stuff to help me out. Have you been makeing chocolate cake lately? If you could send me some that would be great but only if you want. I will be happy to have some. If you want to come to the hospital that will be great. I have been working for about 20 hours per day because no one could covet me for now.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Pages 50-63

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

               I am reading the book  Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Right now on page 60 Crookshanks (Hermione's Cat) is chasing Scabbers (Ron's Mouse) across one of the rooms and Scabbers bit through a waste basket and took them about 10 min to catch him. Scabbers is a mouse that likes to chew through everything. Crookshanks likes to chase Scabbers everywhere. Harry got detention for having a mouse and a cat together in the classroom which was not his fault for them because they were not his animals.     

clips in videos final draft

Clips in videos

over-the-shoulder shot              
             If you are shooting a video, what type of shots or very important?  Here are the different angles I am going to tell you in the article  the four important clips are in taking pictures or videos. The very important shot is the close up(or the CU shot) because the close up is the shot where the microphone can pick up voices better than farther away. The close up shows very little background and is not that interesting if you want to use it as a background shot. Close ups are also used as cutaways. The close up shot takes up the whole frame just like the Wide shot. In the news, reporters use this shot a lot because the microphone works better and the camera can pick up his lips moving so it looks like it is in real life and blind people can know what they are saying. Here's an example, if you want to make a video of someone interviewing someone then you should use the close but only use it on one person. If you want a good picture you should use the close up. 


Another good shot is the Wide Shot (or the WS shot) because the wide shot can be used for many things. It can be used for a small family to take a picture of all them instead of the close up only one person can be used in the shot. The wide shot is a good shot to have background with but the close is not good to have background with. The wide shot is sometimes used to show in the news like a firefighter putting out a fire. The wide shot is the most popular at a concert because you can get the whole scene in the picture. The wide shot can also be used for just one person it doesn't have to be used for a lot of people. The wide shot takes up the whole frame and the persons head is at the top of the frame and his or her feet is at the bottom of the frame.

         
        The shot that I love is the Over the shoulder shot because I like to have conversations. Over the shoulder shot is the most popular conversational shots or videos. The over the shoulder shot(or the OSS shot) doesn't have to be for conversations, it can be used for in movies when if someone is having a duel. The over the shoulder shot (OSS) is a very popular shot just like the close up (CU) because they are used a lot in movies. Almost all of the shots are used in movies and sometimes short videos. 


            The next shot is the Mid Shot (MS) is also a very popular shot and all of these clips are very popular ones and that is what I am talking about in this essay. The Mid Shot (MS) is a shot between a close up and a Wide shot (WS). The mid shot is probably the most popular Clips used. The mid shot is the best shot to have a background with. Did you know that you are taking the basic clips in pictures or videos? yes you are using them about 75% of the time whale taking pictures or videos. The different types of clips will help you in taking better pictures or making better videos. Now you know how what the four important clips in pictures or videos.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Pages 39-50

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

                 I am reading the book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. On page 39 they where talking about Sirus black (Like they talk about in page 38) Because in the newspaper was talking about him coming back. Harry just met Cornelius Fudge and he is the Minister of magic and I predict that he is there to talk about Harry using magic in front of Muggles (what wizards and witches call people that don't do magic). Harry Potter has been using magic in front of the Dursleys and on his summer after his first year he got a message from his school and said that he was not able to use magic out of school.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, pages 28-39

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I am reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This book is interesting because, first it is very fun to read. Next the book has a lot of fun phrases and comments. Finally, it has very funny moments. On of the funny moments is, like when Harry brought in a new friend and he totally messed up the dinner that night.

Clips in videos





Do you know the different types of shots in videos and movies? Yeah, in the old
movies the just kept the camera in one place. Well now we know all different shots and
I am going to tell you about them. The first shot that is used a lot is the close up shot.
The next type of shot is the wide shot used a lot in scenery. The wide shot is a shot that
shows about two people. Another shot is the Cut In normally people take pictures of
the lower of the stomach. Next, What if you want to have two people on a movie then
you should use the two shot. An Extreme wide shot usually is used for a small area of
land. A Very wide shot is sometimes used to look at a room or classroom details. If you
want a picture of someone pointing in a direction or something you use the Point of
View shot. The Mid shot is between a close up and a medium close up. The mid shot is
used a lot at taking pictures of larger things or sometimes used for interviewing with a
background. An Extreme close up is used in drama shows a lot. A Extreme close up is
normally just the eyes or the mouth. most of the time a Extreme close up is used for taking really close pictures of flowers or small things. Lets say you want to take a picture for a drama scene you would most likely use the extreme close up. lets go back to the close up, Do you know what the close up is used for most of the time? It is almost always used for interviewing people or on the news when people are taking. The Extreme wide shot is used to take pictures (or videos) of big land areas. the cut in is sometimes used to show what your hands are doing when you are nervous. The very wide shot is used normally to take a picture of a house. a cutaway shot is a shot that is something else than the subject. lest say you want to take a picture of something of a person but then you want to take a different picture off all the people that would be a cutaway. a over the shoulder shot is a shot that most people use to take a video of someone talking you would use the over the shoulder shot. I don't think that anyone uses the weather shot, but if you want to know what it is i will tell you, the weather shot is a shot that is taken up in the sky and takes a picture of the weather which i think is why they call it a weather shot. you might think people never use these shots but you actually use them more than you think. To get better shots in making videos you should stick to these shots there may be more shots out there but these are the most common. If you do not think I am right here is a link tap the link bellow.

Was dally gallant in chapter 10 and was dally's death sadder than johnny's

Was dally gallant in chapter 10? Yes just like he was taking his whole life for pony boy. Dally just robbed a store and his plan was to kill his own self because he could not take it when Johnny died. Dally's death is probably less sad then Johnny's because Johnny was pony boy's favorite. Johnny was a big help to pony boy in the church and now Johnny is dead.
