Hawai‘i Schools Take on a National Challenge

Hawai‘i was up to the Challenge! Between October 20, 2016 and October 26, 2016, students and teachers worked hard planning, filming, script-writing and editing their videos to create and complete a compelling story that addressed a particular theme.

HIKI NO Students and Teachers Expand On Their Digital Media Skills
Hawai‘i Creative Media (HCM) provide a variety of digital media workshops for new and returning HIKI NO schools on the Island of Oahu.
On October 8-11, 2016, the Hawai‘i Creative Media team made its way to the Island of Oahu to conduct a four-day digital media workshop for teachers and students.
Fifty-three students and fourteen teachers from Campbell High, Highlands Intermediate, Hongwanji Mission, Ilima Intermediate, Ka Waihona o ka Na‘aua New Century PCS, Kalaheo High, Kamehameha Schools Maui - Middle, McKinley High, Moanalua High, Pearl City High, Radford High, Waiakea High, Waialua High & Intermediate, and Wai‘anae Intermediate spent their weekend learning storytelling and video production skills.
Two sessions were concurrently conducted --- a beginning track and an advanced track.
The beginner’s workshop was taught by Kevin Matsunaga of Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle and Austin Zavala of Moanalua High. The beginning track covered the basics of video production including videography, audio, news writing, news gathering, interviewing, digital editing, and the HIKI NO standards. Through this workshop, students learned basic photo composition shots and techniques, sequencing, and how to capture b-roll, conduct interviews and capture natural sounds. Students ended the workshop with a culminating piece where they were able to start working on a video that would potentially become their HIKI NO franchise piece and factoid.
The advanced workshop was facilitated by John Allen of Wai‘anae High Searider Productions and Clint Gima of Maui High School. For this track, schoools could pick and choose which topic(s) they wanted to attend based on their own needs. The advanced track covered FOUR different topics that schools could choose to participate in:
Day 1: Final Cut Pro: How to use and set up a Final Cut Pro project, editing tips and tricks.
Day 2: DSLR Basics: How to use and set up the DSLR camera, how to achieve the "exposure triangle".
Day 3: Interviews and B-Roll: How to capture good b-roll, how to set-up an interview.
Day 4: Nat Package: How to get sound and video together to get it as one sound, how to use and set up your wireless mics, how to capture natural sound and create a nat sound package.
Each workshop incorporated hands-on activities and critique sessions to help students take their videos from good to great.
