Summer Club

Summer is in full swing and kids do not have class, so we thought it was a good idea during the week to do activities with them. We believe that through the game you can learn a lot and of course it is a good opportunity to meet the local people.
So we set out to plan, organize, divide tasks and discuss the possibilities we had within our reach. From activities like Pin.pon, badminton, football, painting, graffiti, cooking, to other types of games where you can encourage more collaboration between them. Although undoubtedly, with this heat the undisputed star was the recent war of balloons …. see the faces of the kids, enjoyed how only children can do it …. there was only time for them.
There is still a lot of summer left and we want to continue developing interesting activities for the young people of Ormánság. From this blog we want to encourage everyone to come and visit us. We can only promise you to have a good time, that’s for sure.

VIDEO EDITING:

 

  1. A) BASIC RULES OF  VIDEO EDITING

https://www.videomaker.com/community/forums/topic/10-rules-for-video-editors

  1. ALWAYS CUT THE VIDEO FOR THE REASON, NOT JUST BECAUSE:

the motivation to cut can be just shaking of the camera, a mistake, somebody crossing the picture, but the most important reason to cut is TO BUILT THE ACTION!

NOT ADD TOO MUCH UNNECESAIRY EFFECTS!

  1. FIND THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SCENES

This connection can be for example a direction of movement, shot….

THE CONTINUITY– avoid for example elements appearing out of nothing (in our case plates and spoons).Always try to follow some logic in connecting scenes.

3.CUT ON MOTION

If you cut when object are moving  it makes the viewer focus more on the object and the action, not on the cut. The similar or connected way of moving  gives the motivation for the shot.

“If you have a shot of your subject turning, then cutting to a shot of a door opening (or someone approaching, etc.) at the height of the subjects motion provides motivation for the previous action and makes the cut seem natural and seamless.”

  1. THE CAMERA A AND CAMERA B

You can have materials from two cameras, which are completely different. The camera A  shows the main action. The camera  B  is “everything else”. You can use them both – it makes the movie more interesting.

  1. DON’T JUMP UNLESS YOU REALLY NEED TO

Try to avoid shots with dramatic differences one after another. Difference can be for example the type of shot, colours, the angle…

  1. CHANGE YOUR LEVEL

Using the same shot for all the movie is boring! That’s why Juan was always recording as a camera B, for the close ups.

  1. LOOK FOR THE SIMILARITY IN THE SHOTS YOU COMBINE

Shot objects can be completely different but for example move the same way, have the same colour, etc…  It depends on your creativity and imagination!

  1. VIDEO TRANSITIONS, YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO USE THEM!

THE MOST IMPORTANT ARE:

– the cut

– the cross dissolve

-the wipe

AN EXAMPLE OF A GREAT EDITING TO ANALYZE:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQ_-rmuPZC4&index=6&list=PLK9MxXvWBGM_9kOpjTtZqIPeKu017LY4K

visible rules: 

– all the cuts have a reason to be used

– cut in motion!!! (It’s the scene of fight, so characters are constantly moving)

– the connection between scenes (strong inner logic ,continuity)

– using camera A and B

– change levels (for example a close up after a wide shot)

-transitions (mostly cut but also a cross dissolve)

It’s easy to watch, dynamic, you don’t even pay attention how the cut is made, because you are so into the action… GREAT!

  1. B) GETTING STARTED WITH ADOBE PREMIERE PRO

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hls3Tp7JS8E

 

  1. C) THE SPECIFIC OF COOKBOOK VIDEOS
  2. We make a short (2 minutes video) of 2,5 h of materials. That’s why we usually make movements faster. (speed/duration option)
  3. The continuity and logic of our videos must be really clear and visible (our video shows the process of cooking from the beginning to the end)
  4. You should make this video interesting by controlling the length of specific sequences (for example the cook can’t peel and cut potatoes for all the movie, even if it have taken a lot’s of time)
  5. You shouldn’t use to many strange effects, because the process of cooking is the most important, and effects could distract the viewer
  6. You should try to match the music to the video (for example the movement and the speed of action should be connected to the rhythm and the general atmosphere of the music)
  7. You should know, how to add titles.

Before I die, I want heaven.

The weeks go away quickly and you have the feeling that no matter how much you run, you can not catch life … time passes very fast, too fast! But maybe when you travel, when you know different cultures and people of all types and thoughts …. at times you get to feel that somehow you manage to stop the time. That is why it hooks the travel. Get out of the rut and feel alive.
So when we have a few days off volunteers we usually throw to the road. In my case I come to visit two good friends. We will go from Budapest to the beaches of Croatia and of course we will stop to visit Ormánság. It could not be otherwise. We will take a Greenway route and enjoy nature, Hungarian wine, Kémes … long conversations and good music.
And of course end the trip by watching and listening to the sea in Croatia. Can there be a better end to a trip? I doubt it. Definitely a new opportunity to enjoy the moment. And as a poet says, if there is something clear in this life is that sooner or later it is over. So as the new song that my brother tells me, says: BEFORE DYING I WANT HEAVEN.

Főzés Kati nénivel

On Saturday we visited the house of Kati Némi to add a recipe to the cookbook. It was a special activity because we had a new member, the boyfriend of a girl volunteer, there were problems communicating with Kati during the activity, and she had all the ingredients prepared when they were made together; Personally it is not a problem but a detail.

We arrived at his house at 9:30 in the morning, a curiosity not to stain the floor Kati gave us a suitable footwear.

After riding, deciding, moving and placing, he finally starts to cook the dish, a very quick dish, and very rich. The dish was “Ormansa`gi Combfilé Rizsropogóssal”.

The chicken was tender with an amazing flavor and with the sauce was a dish of 10;

He had never tasted such a chicken;

It was accompanied by peas and carrots and a kind of nuggets made with rice and on the outside added an ingredient that it is possible that I also use it in my kitchen, “almonds”.

CONGRATULATIONS FAMILY

 

As is normal the evs also have their vacations and in my case I have clear that I want to take advantage of them to know countries, places, people and different cultures. So we made a budget, looked at the map, chose destinations and got going. The route was demanding, we wanted to visit Budapest, Belgrade, Sarajevo and Zagrev in eight days, but we also did not want to stress … it’s the eternal dilemma, I guess the key as always is finding a balance.

 

As I do not want to be bored, I will say that Sarajevo is the city that most affected me. The city is surrounded by mountains, the same mountains that 25 years ago Serbian soldiers occupied to besiege the city for 1400 days, and from them one can contemplate their beauty while listening to the songs of the Muslims. It does not look like you’re in Europe, it’s just different.

 

To conclude, I confess that on Saturday June 10 I was dying of nerves, hundreds of miles in a small town, a football team was playing the promotion to a higher category. The thing went well and the Ondalan could celebrate a new conquest. CONGRATULATIONS FAMILY, YOU ARE THE BEST !! Wherever you are, GO BY YOU DABOR !!

Gratuláció  család

Mint mindenhol az önkéntes szolgálatnál is van vakáció és tisztán tudtam, hogy kiakarom használni ezt a lehetőséget, hogy megismerjek országokat, helyeket, embereket és különböző kultúrákat.  Szóval csináltunk egy költségvetést, megnéztük a térképet és kiválasztottunk a célállomást és mentünk. Az útvonal elég igényes , de megakartuk látogatni Budapestet, Belgrádot, Szarajevót és Zágrábot 8 nap alatt, de szintén nem akartunk nehézséget… ez egy örök dilemma, szerintem a kulcs, hogy megtaláljuk az egyensúlyt.

Ahogy nem akartam unott lenni, így maradtam Szarajevóban a városban, amely a legnagyobb hatással volt rám. A város körül hegyek vannak,  ugyanazok a hegyek , melyet 25 évvel ezelőtt szerbiai katonák foglaltak el 1400 napra. és valamelyikük talán elmélkedhetett a szépségükön, miközben a Muszlim dalokat hallgatta.  Nem úgy tűnik , mintha  Európában lennél, tejesen más.

Következtetésképpen, bevallom, hogy Június 10.-én haldokoltam az idegességtől,  100 mérföldekre egy kicsi faluban, egy labdarúgó csapat  egy magasabb kategóriában játszott. A dolog jól ment és  Ondalan új hódítót ünnepelhetett.  Gratulálok család, ti vagytok a legjobbak!!!! Bárhol is vagy,menj Te Magad Dalan!

Hi¡¡ i´m xabi and my experience in the cookbook was so:

The volunteers were deciding who had to make the typical food in their countries,and i had no problems to cook for them and show to them.

My plate,so i said: why not? I started  to do the tortilla española, i think that was more easy but i forget it, not only cook too reccord and make the photos,the tortilla did not burn because God did not want it, jajaja.”

When i started to cook, peeling the potatoes, cutting the onion everything was going well, But the difficulty was in the pan, IT DIDN´T HANDLE¡¡

There was a step where I had to turn it over,lol.

but i was great, confortable, quiet, i just had problems in inexperience on recording and making the list because zoli not undertand me and where i

put piece he readed kilogrames jaja , but i know that they enjoyed with me and eating my tortilla,jajaja.

tamas is the photographer, i enjoyed with him a lot, tamas is a sociable man and very funny, and Who said that you could not work and enjoy at

the same time? and i do it.

And so it was that later in an activity I returned to cook more tortillas.

Az önkénteseknek el kellett dönteni, hogy ki csinálja meg az országában található tipikus ételt, nem volt gond nekem, hogy  főzzek és mutassam meg nekik.

Szóval mondtam, hogy miért ne?  El kezdtem csinálni a spanyol tortilla-t, azt hittem könnyű , de már elfelejtettem , de nem csak főzünk , hanem közben felvételt, képeket készítünk, a tortilla nem égett oda , mert isten nem akarta ezt! hahaha

School visit

 

Almost holiday – so last week of our school visits. We had lessons with 7 and 8 grade. Our

main goal for this visit was to say goodbye for next 2 months, have some fun with kids and in

the same time to show them a little of our different cultures, languages, games from our

countries. We made a “tv contest” for them, so we created 2 teams.

First task: to recognize a language of sentence we gave to them: polish, english, spanish and

portuguese. It wasn’t easy, but they did it quite good. Second: popular game in Poland –

transporting ping pong ball from one place to another. Trick: without using hands, they had to

held a teaspoon with ball in mouth. We had a lot of fun with this game. And final task – quiz

about our countries: Poland, Spain and Portugal. We asked them about our typical food, wine,

traditions. Kids in 7 grade were so great, they knew almost everything.

The most important thing for this day was conclusion – we have a lot of differences,

languages, history, traditions, but we have so much more in common. We all humans, so we

should respect each other, cooperate with each other, never fight.

I hope they enjoyed time with us. We wish them all the best for holidays.
