I loved this reflection, especially all the childhood photos you added in. The photos added a touching feel to the post. One of the best videos Ive seen from this section, also loved the music. Good job.
This is very good essay, Jackson. Although, you kind of sounded like a robot when you did your podcast, and at times, I felt like I was listening to the lyrics of the song. But you did have some very good pictures in there!
Wow, the amount of insight and effort put into this shows. It just blew me away.I really enjoyed how you changed in between your family at home and your family at Fenn. You shared a one of a kind post that reflects the mentality of finishing Fenn strong.
Your effort was apparent in the video and reflection. Your background music was spot-on, and your ideas and thoughts were really well expressed. I think you captured what most of us feel about Fenn -- that it is a warm and welcoming launching pad for life. Congratulations on Lawrence, and I hope you continue to be an open and thoughtful kid there/
I liked the background music. I thought that having music with words would take over the video but here it did not at all. This year I have gotten to know you much better and we have had some great times together. This video essay was very good and I enjoyed watching it. Unfortunately you are leaving next year but that's alright, have a good time at Lawrence.
I agree with everyone else. You went above and beyond on this because of your work ethic, which was clearly excellent on this video essay.
I love the great combination of nostalgic memories with the recent ones. I really shows that you know the school inside and out. The writing style keep it interesting throughout and was backed up by some great pictures.
The pictures you put in here are excellent! The essay topped them though, and this is one of the best pieces you've written. I loved how you really look back, truly reflecting on your year. I wish you the best of luck at Lawrence, and I hope you'll make even more memories there.
You did a really good job on this video, the only problem was your audio was a little scratchy and hard to understand at times, but that is just a small thing. You had amazing points, and also you combined your memories with Fenn, with your memories outside of Fenn like going to Maine. Overall you video essay was a very good one.
I loved your video, despite the audio being a bit odd and the video buffering frequently. Your commanding and interesting essay made me despite the problems with the video. Great Job Jackson.
Good luck to you and Wills at Lawrence!
Great open. The audio is a bit rough, but the words are awesome, and you state your theme clearly and concisely. You followed it up with a folksy and real narrative that tells a great story of the ups and downs of your year. You use good and specific memories to tell your story. This is a true heroic cycle and with this video you “create” an elixir fitting of any hero cycle. I like how you develop the theme of hard work paying off. Good weaving in of video shots and still shots. (I especially love the shot of your shop project) and getting away from Fenn and to your summer life—which is such an important part of life. This is a good and fitting end to your year. Congratulations on all you have accomplished. Good luck in the future and keep in touch!
