PRESENTERS SCRIPT & CAMERA SCRIPT
I made the script by looking online at examples and tried to follow the structure the best I could. At first I didn't understand the terminology used, as they were in 'short form' but after some research it all became much clearer to understand. Script writing became much easier as I got the control of writing it. I started to understand where and when to add in the VTs and asked Sam and Mathew to create more VTs to suit the need of the script I was making. Thankfully, they were super efficient and produced VTs at my request.
PRE-MAKE OF SWEATER
Firstly, I went Monday after school to Causeway Bay's UNIQLO to purchase a sweater that I had already researched on their online website. However, when I reached the store, not a single style of the product we wanted was in stock in the WHOLE of Hong Kong. My plan was still foolproof as I researched about the second best product to purchase if the store didn't have the style of sweater we wanted. Instead, I purchased the sweater that was of thicker material, little did I know it would become a downfall later on. Knowing that the filming would be on the Thursday class, I decided to come in early on a Tuesday morning to complete the sweater and let it dry over the period of two days. I borrow art supplies from the art room by asking the art assistant, she was extremely nice and lent it to me. However, the drying of the sweater did not go fully to plan as the sweater was made from thicker material and took much longer to dry. When the time of our TV Production came around, the sweater was only three quarters of the way dry. Right before the filming, we had to spend 10 mins blow drying it with the hairdryers from the art room.

I had kept a plan B ready just in case the sweater wasn't going to succeed. We chose to have our second idea a DIY too, but it was a much simpler one. It was DIY Phone speakers that could be made from two cardboard rolls.
REHEARSAL FOOTAGE - INSIDE THE BOOTH
REHEARSAL FOOTAGE - IN THE STUDIO
In conclusion, I found that Live Streaming was much harder than it looks. Everyone had to stay perfectly calm throughout the whole process. Live streams were difficult because once you made a mistake, you had to pretend like nothing happened and continue for the show to go smoothly. In addition, everything had to be prepared a few days beforehand, including all VTs and other preparations. For example, in our group, I had to prepare the Sweater, paints and brushes. I also had to plan how the studio would look like to make sure everything was easy to reach and ensured the smoothness of the Live Stream. Overall, I found this experience to be extremely joyful and interesting.
