Working together for our project was a wondrous experience. My teammates and I laughed our lungs out when we were just coming up with half-brained, often hilariously silly, ideas for an invention. Sierra and Kelly were the ones who came up with it, the simple pencil-drawings that led to our entire project. Hsiao-mei and I produced our script, along with props and ideas (again, most of them ridiculous) whilst the others wrote each and every thing down. A project pulled out of the pure effort of teamwork, we knew our labor would not be wasted, that our idea would unanonymously be rewarded with no less then the best of them.
Our glorified inventions are the Undo Button and Sun-in-a-bottle. Spouted out of pure lunacy, the Sun-in-a-bottle has an unusual creation. We were contemplating Sierra’s exquisite tan, when it was suggested that we should make something that would give people her ability to be tan both where and whenever they pleased. As such, Sun-in-a-bottle was created to not only give others sun-kissed skin, but to also give them an artificial sun of sorts during winter and rainy seasons. I mused it would be vastly popular in Seattle. The Undo Button was a fail-safe of sorts. For separate price it was determined that it would be sold with the Sun-in-a-bottle. The object of such an invention was so that if you got a sun-burn from the former, it would be cleared away as you were sent back in time to redo the moment. It works for other things as well. Such as: if you were mugged, you could go back in time and stop that, or an accident of some other sorts. These two seemingly harmless products work together to defy the laws of nature.
Creating a thumbnail for our project was relatively simple. After all, all we had to do was take a glimpse in the crack of the hard shell that held the utter chaos and possibly lewd turmoil that is a teenage girl’s mind. We made it just as we made our inventions; out of jokes and humor. Designing our poster was the same, we spent our time smiling and joking in mild banter as we moved our pencils, markers, and crayons to form large, brightly coloured bubble letters. Our actual drawings may not have been that great, but thinking of all the hard work and laughing that went into it, it was, to us, the best in the room.
Our script was interesting to make. We merely wrote down each and every thing that we thought we should say. It was a group experience, although being made by teenagers of the feminine variety, it sounded a bit…odd at the beginning. The script itself was not made to be taken seriously at all. However, we weren’t joking when it came to the matter of rehearsing the script. All previous giggles came to halt, with only a small lingering trace of a smile in our eyes giving hint that there had been any at all. Now let’s get on to the script itself. The plot of story was about our protagonist, Kelly, going to the grocery. When she exits shop, she runs into a mysterious stranger (Sierra) in the alley. Upon meeting the stranger, she is given a bag for free. Kelly takes the bag and runs off into the sunset. She wakes up the next day sun-burnt from the Sun-in-a-bottle (Which, along with the Undo Button, was inside the bag.) The stranger from the alley pops up behind her from the bathroom, telling her she messed up, what gave her sunburn, and what else was in the bag. Kelly then fainted. A Sun-in-a-bottle representative pops up and explains the products. The end. As for the shots, we used almost all of them, except for the extreme close up. The only problem we encountered when filming our videos was when the bell rang and we had to stop production in order to not get any kids in the shot. To edit our video, we put it on Windows Movie Maker. We then cut out and added bits and pieces and music to our film, and it was ready. Once that was done, we uploaded it to our class’s blog. Working as a team, we were extremely efficient. We got the job done faster. We did not encounter any problems aside from the occasional panting of air whenever we got breathless from laughing. Which was often. In conclusion, I learned how to work better in a group, which to me is a huge lesson.
