Senior Action Project by Michael Spiering Hi I go to Lincoln Lutheran Highschool in Lincoln. Thank you for watching! Please Consider Supporting: GladTidingsBibleCamp.org
The reason I put the PX (Christ) symbol on my mask, is because I find Jesus and God and the holy Spirit is the center of my life. I put the happy expression on my mask because I thought I am usually happy and I certainly want to be happy.
I put GTBC on it because I am most involved with Glad Tidings Bible Camp
And of course I’m a husker so I had to have the big N
Here is what you should watch if you feel the need to critique how edits are made.
If you were wondering, I used audio transitions to make it sound smoother, Please let me know if i should be more aggressive with the audio transitions.
I made this video in adobe premiere pro. It said I made 267 cuts. And I used 140 effects. I tried my best to make lots of cuts.
I originally wanted this video to be the worst mockery of tik tok. I wanted this thing to be satirical by shaking the camera. By aiming the camera at the sun. By having nonsensical captions. By turning up the audio on a few clips to make that phrase seem dramatic.
I had to manually make luts to make the color of my skin better. I decided to run my mock tik toks through the app to get the username and symbol overlay effect. I think it works rather well. I used a really good microphone and the audio shows (thumbs up).
Won countless awards for Taekwondo: Corn-Husker State Games medals, various trophies from events hosted by schools in the Nebraska area.
Won a P.E. award with the school
I have volunteered at Glad Tiding Bible Camp since 2016
I am very good at leading and taking care of children and adolescents(babysitting)
I have this website that the school made for me. I have made my own website about my experiences at Glad Tidings Bible Camp, this is the website I have worked on the most. And I made a website about a small town in Nebraska.
This post is my bowl project for my art class. Below is my artist statement.
I made this Glazed Bowl in art class, my word choice “Beloved” reminds me of Gods unmeasurable love for us. God loves us so much that every time we pray to him he makes sure to have a quality relationship and conversations. Sometimes it’s hard to keep this in mind, so that’s why I have “Beloved” and a heart. We initially had a paper printout to put designs and to cutout, this was the first step. Next I got a flat slab of moist grey clay and used the paper cutout to carve out the initial shape from the clay slab. Next I pressed the Greek like stamp designs and “Beloved” into the sides. I scored the edges of the flat shape, and used slip on the scored edges; and pressed the edges upward and scored edges into each other. With the 3D bowl I used slip to cover cracks, and smoothed the corners on the inside and outside. I imprinted the heart manually here with the tool edge since there wasn’t a heart stamp. I waited a few days for the bowl to slowly but throughly dry; so it wouldn’t cause problems in the kiln. Then it was fired in the kiln for about nine hours. It was no longer grey, but light tan. I considered the movie the emperor’s new groove as I chose my colors realizing the stamp looked like some stone walls in that movie. I considered what colors looked good wanting a red for the heart and light blue for the stamped design; remembering what colors were in that movie. I chose a more solid blue for the inside of my bowl and the bottom to cover the “Beloved” imprint. I got a metal three legged stand for the bottom, because the glaze would cause problems in the kiln without it. I added three layers of each color to my bowl gently so the first and second layers wouldn’t get scratched off. The bowl was in the kiln for another nine hours. And the finished product is what you see. Almost everything I did in this project was new for me. I learned a ton including what temperatures to use for each time it need to goin the kiln for different reasons like glaze finishing. The whole process was calming and pleasing knowing I would have a beautiful product. I give credit to God for creating my hands and mind. He is the true creator and I couldn’t have done this without him.
My artwork looks like steel cross beams found in large construction zones, and also a wood abstract table. I title it: shaded table. Uses of straight beams is most obvious in my work. I used pencil and a ruler to draw the initial shapes and spaces. Then I drew in the details with pencil and drew over some of the pencil marks with a fine marker. Metal beams are three dimensional, personally I was inspired with many different colors to combine with them. The way I used metal beams kind of looks like they are coming and going in and out of frame like almost in outer space. I tried to show pleasing colors with my usage of blues, green, and violet. my current goal for being an artist is to just make what I want, and if it’s any good I’ll make more of it, and experiment to gain experience. This piece has a few missing elements and is very arbitrary. I would say this piece has put me a step forward. I learned how difficult it is to make depth in my drawing and the marker gives a bolder look then pencil lead. It is not the final pieces I initially imagined, it is overwhelming when you start to expect a masterpiece. This piece has straight lines and they look good , so probably, my future artwork will have straight lines.
It’s title: Shaded Table.
So, you have a website now. You’re probably wondering why. Well, there are a couple of reasons (in no particular order):
By the way, you can delete this post when you’re done reading it. If you leave it on your site, it will seem a little odd to people. There are a couple of more interesting things you could do instead of deleting it:
Short Answer: It’s your website; put anything you want on it. Make sure it is professional, thoughtful and kind.
Longer Answer: You will occasionally be asked by one of your teachers to put something that you create for class on your website. They might do this to help you share something great that you did with the rest of the world. They might do it so that you can get feedback from a wider audience. But I hope you also put things up just because you want to. A recap of your latest game? Something in the world that you want to share your opinion about? The cute thing your little sister did? What you thought about the book you read? The Movie you saw? The possibilities are endless.
But remember, the whole world can read what you write. Make sure you proof read it before you publish it. Make sure it’s not Too Much Information (don’t share things that are too personal). Make sure it’s kind.
Finally, your website should look professional. Your website isn’t Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Posts to your website should have some thought and substance to them. Pick the right tool for how you want to communicate. Sometimes that will be Facebook, sometimes Twitter and sometimes it will be your website.
By the way, you can delete this post when you’re done reading it. If you leave it on your site, it will seem a little odd to people.
Congratulations, you now have a website. You might be wondering, “Why do I have a website?” That’s a question for a different post. Of course, having a website is a little bit of a responsibility. Here are some things that you should keep in mind now that you have one.
By the way, you should probably make it so that other people can’t see this post. There’s a lot of advice here, so rather than delete it, do one of these things: Change it’s Status from “Published” to “Draft”. Then it will be available to you in the admin section of your website, but people who visit your site won’t see it. Or, you could change the Visibility from “Public” to “Private”. If you do that, then you’ll still see it on your website (if you are logged in), but other people will not.
