For my capstone, I plan to make a short documentary film of this year’s 2012-13 SLA Boys Basketball Team. My documentary will focus on the highs and lows of this season, as well as how everyone grew in their own aspect as well as what they learned throughout the season. I will include game time decisions in the heat of the moment, on/off court commentary, and interviews. Interviews will just be asking a few individuals how they felt the season went, what could’ve been better, what they learned, who they saw grow, and whom they thought was the best teammate and why. I will also focus on what they are looking forward to next season, and what they’ll miss. I chose this topic because basketball is a game that I’ve fall in love with since a child and it’s taught me many lessons as well as helped me grow and mature, and I’m very interested in Psychology so this would allow me to take a step back and see how basketball affects others and if it provides the same benefits.
File is here.
My specific topic is fashion club/charity. I have always wanted to help out a homeless settler but never knew how. However, since I love fashion and creating new style throughout people's everyday lifestyle I decided that i should have a club where other kids who enjoys fashion and wants to help in my fashion club to create new clothes from old clothes and at the end of the club we would have a fashion show and sell off the clothes then donates the money for a good cost.My goal is to get 200-300 people to come and watch the show, I honestly can not estimate if it’s going to be more SLA students or outside to come see the show. However, it’s most likely to be more depending on the promotion of the event. There will be 20 SLA models and 5 SLA designers. 5-7 SLA performers and 1-3 outside of SLA members who will also be performing. Fashion club/clarity!. I've decided to establish a club at SLA for kids who enjoin fashion and willing to help in my fashion club. Creating new clothing from old clothes, by the designers from the SLA community and some other performers. At the end of the club, hopefully, have a fashion show and the money will be donated to "Fairy Godmother's. By doing this project I hope to learn how hard you have to earn/work for something in life. Because my mom always tell me how hard things are but I can’t never relate to any of them due to the fact that she and my dad spoils me and now I am for once doing something on my own and it has to go right.

I pick this source because it talks about the history of clothing. Also, ways they are created and some of the things they use to get the fabric they are looking for. For example this article tell you about the first clothes that were made from natural things, such as animal skin, fur etc. This would help me to know which clothes to sew or glue onto each other or the value of a certain fabric. Some fabric of animals that are very hard to find therefore the craft and fabrics stores sell them very expensive and I wouldn't want to waste it by making a mistake.
Kuronyi, Anne. "Welcom/e to Our Online Thrift Store." The Attic. The Attic Bethlehem, 7 Apr. 2008. Web. 01 Feb. 2013.
This is need for the importance of thrift store and how it could be cheap because of what we are doing. Also, the it's clothing that is already worn or made that would be created into something new. For example a sweater could be very old and one of our fashion designer could create a newer style into it.
Kaufman, Robert. "Knit Fabric." - Discount. Amy Butler, 5 Apr. 2003. Web. 01 Feb. 2013.
This site is useful because it tell me the difference between these fabric. The culture and why is certain fabric is being used with another type of fabric. I have learned that not all sewing machine are used for all fabric that is something useful I think I needed to know. Because if I wanted to sew a certain fabric on a sewing machine that isn't built to sew a thin line fabric and that fabric could be ruin.

This site talks about how dancing affect some people in a way, because some people uses dance to communicate in certain part of the world. For example, in one of West African country, Liberia, there a village called Nieba. In this village there’s a dance performed called the Niemba dance and this dance is performed by mostly women. The communication in this dance is showing the “obedience” of a womanhood. Waking up in the morning going to the market and gathering food and cleaning around the house then prepare food for you and your family. Also I have actually performed this dance and I did the farming one, going to the farm, cutting crops and putting it into the pot to bring it home. The way they communication is acknowledged is by the drums, the drummer is going to play a certain beat and that is when you should do another move or how to start moving.
"Silk Fabric Information." Fabric Information: Silk, History of Silk. NY FASHION CENTER FABRICS, n.d. Web. 01 Feb. 2013.
This would be use to help me take more care of this fabric because as we all know it a very hard to find the correct one. Also, the value of fabric and how it could be created into something really valuable. Another reason this is useful is, a lot of clothing is created from silk nowadays therefore we have to be careful with it.

I am using this site to help me understand how different outfit could be worn base on the season. Some colors that you could wear in the winter you wouldn’t wear in the summertime due the “fashion rules”. Some people actually follow some of these rules and obey by them. Also, this site allows me to view options styles that some of my designer could use or their theme.
"Celebrity Engagement Rings." ELLE. N.p., n.d. Web. 01 Feb. 2013.
Some people wear the most expensive clothing that they think are the worth, when deep down someone could create the same outfit for less money. Also the makeup, this gives easy ways to put makeup on for a starter. Not everyone likes to wear make up and this site could tell us about what things to use to avoid this matter.

This is useful for the blog we are also creating for the fashion process. For example we would have “ rating and best outfits/ week”. Also, shows the improvement from what the designers did that is similar. Compare their outfits and let the SLA kids rate them, so that way we would know what we need to change and add or remove. Because after all it’s the audience view we are trying to get.

Respond to one (agree, disagree, connections)
Religion is the sign of the oppressed creature, the sentiment of a heartless world, and the sould of soul- less conditions. It is the opium of the people- Karl Max. 1884
I agree with this because back then, a lot of people feel the negative passion of endanger of the other society when they have different religion. No one cares about the other group of people. They think about themselves and the world is segregated because people believe in different things. I believe that everyone has a leader; therefore it brings people together. For example, famous people will tell the people in the society not to do non violence because its a better reputations of not doing any sinful things. I think there is one God, but people see it with different types of God when there are more than one religion.
It causes violences because there ar war happening. Religion have different myths where people do different things.

6) Ralph calls Jack the beastie.
7) Percival can't even say his full name by the end of the book.
i wish we could go to a park and sit back to backand talk until the stars go away
because when I look at youmy voice shakes, my knees grow weak

but darling everything is simpler than it looks
like how you have the best music taste by far
or the fact you don’t see how breathtaking you really are
i can't quite put a finger on it so please
don't make me find words that fit
no combination of 26 letters could do it
What is the best way to adress global inequality?
The best way to adress global inequality is to give every race the same oppurtunity and pay. Another way is to not judge people by their religion, or their beliefs, because they could be jsut like you, but just a different religion. Also, places that are over populated should have more that what places that ae less populated have.

From a very young age, I became greatly aware of the power of great storytelling, and how it can truly resonate with me. As a person who considers his true passion to lie within the arts, I grew up with an amazing fascination for film, television, theatre, and music. However, age has taught me that the true reason for this fervid, passionate interest was because of the core element and common thread that unites all works of art: the story. All of these early experiences have taught me the power of the story, and have instill upon me the passion for creating and writing works that hold great power. I believe that a story can truly change the world.
One of the most durable and impactful mediums in which to express and tell a great story is the theatre. The incredible connection that can be made through live interactions is astounding. Ultimately, it is the staging not just of a show, but of an event.For my Capstone, I decided to write a play, harnessing the ever-changing ideologies and beliefs of my mind. The play, entitled Prophesy Landing, is the story of a dystopic, anarchist, decentralized world set many years in the future. Due to the ever increasing influence of humans doing "unnatural" things, a great event has happened, causing the world to be unable to support the modern way of life. In this new world, our characters are only regulated to acts that are deemed "natural", as not to disrupt the earth again. Ultimately, they must question their own natural moralities and understand what "normal" truly is.
if that doesn't work, try THIS
For my capstone project, I decided to create individual makeup styles/looks that were inspired by different things in the everyday world that stood out to me. These inspirations range from the beautiful colors in the skyline, different types of fashion trends and stereotypes, movies and even just things that happened to catch my eye as i walked down the street. As an aspiring makeup artist, I love mixing it up and creating new funky looks, why not use the array of things we see around us everyday for that inspiration?
