Gabriel D.L.O Reflection

In week 8 of term 3, we had been given the task to create a DLO about an important event in history. My mate Dillon and I partnered  up to create a great DLO. We decided to concentrate on ‘Te Tiriti o Waitangi’ or in English ‘The Treaty of Waitangi’. What's better than 2 Maoris working on a Maori event?

We did our research and found some great information. My favorite information I found was that 500 Maori people signed the treaty including 13 women. That was the information that I found interesting. The purpose of our movie was to inform our audience about the Treaty of Waitangi. I don’t think that we achieved it as well as we could have because we only had a few facts in our movie.

What should I improve on?
I should really improve on using my time wisely. I really need to focus on what I am meant to do and not talk to friends.  I need to concentrate, do my work so I don't get in trouble and be on the right task. I have to pick the right people who I can work well with.

Video: From my point of view, our rating out of 10 would be about a 6 because our animations were great but the voice-over didn’t suit it. The background beat was too loud so we couldn’t hear our voice over very clearly. I needed to draw what the voiceover says so that it matched. The animations were decent though. Because of the lack of time, our movie wasn’t as good as we expected it to be. I didn’t include enough information that it needed.

What did I do well?
I completed all of my work and I worked well with my mate Dillon. We completed our task and we did a great job overall. The animated images were detailed, had Maori designs and were interesting. We had some facts about the Treaty in it. To view our complete task go to vimeo.
