Oh Canada, what does Canada mean to me…..??? Inspiration, expression, openness and innovation. If your not Canadian you may not have the same values and view in your country. I asked someone from America what Canada meant to them and they said “snowmobiles and maple syrup.” So as you can see this awe inspiring country means a lot to different people! What I’m try to say is that I love this country with a deeper meaning, and I made a video about what Canada means to me and I entered a competition to show it.
The hosts of this competition is Historica Canada and some of them went to are classroom to help us with it and get some info. First I thought it would be simple to create, I told myself it’s only a 30 second it’s easyyyyy. Sadly I was wrong. When I got more intense in to the project I learnt that Canada is so much more then the stereotypes it’s a home for millions and a place everyone can leave there mark.
After awhile I discovered the true meaning of the Canadian spirit! Drum role please….. it’s expression no matter who you are through each persons PASSIONS and that leads to innovation and learning. So that is what I did for my video!
Now let’s talk video. The first step to creating an amazing project is to brain storm, so that what i did. I was thinking of all the reasons I adore Canada and putting them in a web. The second thing I had to do is find pictures. Pictures are always a vital part of a project they make it more interesting and draws in the reader. So I went out to take some really cool photos. The last but not least step is to put this together. I have looked at quite a lot of apps and now have determined that Phonto and Vonto are really good apps to use, therefore I used those apps and have created this video.
I hope seeing my video conjures some thought about maybe doing one yourself because it is a awesome experience to learn really what the great country of Canada really means to YOU!
