A Steak

【Artifact Lable】



This artifact is a video. The name of this video is “A Steak”. This project is my IP project. I made this video with my IP partners. This video is showing about a cow’s story from birth to death. In this project the competency is system thinking.

The reason that we decided to make this project is, we want to let the people realize that they are paying the price when they are eating steak. It is important to realize that. Our IP ‘s main topic is climate change, so this video’s main idea is surrounding about the environment.

The process of making this video was very hard for me, especially the knowledge part. First, we use one day to talked about our topic, and we finish decided the main topic. Our final rendering form will be in cartoon. After that, Riley and me were going to draw the split-lens script. We draw the lens one by one, and we thought about each lens’s composition. I am not good at drawing, but my partners always encourage me, it let me moved.

We totally spend one week to draw the split-lens script. When we finish drawing the script, we move on the hardest part. The animation part. This part is the technology part. In this part our teacher– Caomei teach us. We use an app called AE to make our Cartoon. AE is a professional app to making the Cartoon, and the film making. It is very hard for us, especially me. I haven’t been exposed to this kind of app before. To me, this was new. I always asking question to Caomei and my group mates. I always get confused. I really thanks to Caomei, because she spend so much she’s private time to help me solving my questions.

This video is not the final version. Because we didn’t have time to finish this video between these days. We will finish the video before the final exhibition. Below the link is the first 49seconds of our video. We will keep working on!


In this project I learn a lot professional things. When I was making the Cartoon, I learned a lot of knowledge about AE. AE is a professional app for making Cartoon. It is very complicated. But this app is the only things that could use when we were working on this project. I learned a lot of basic knowledge about AE, such as creating a character, and let it moves it selves. I spend all the times to learn how to use AE in this project. The competency that I improved through this project is System thinking.

In this competency, System thinking, the skills that I improved most is 6A Big picture. In this project, our sights is global, the big picture. Though project we made is focus on a small topic. But the background of our video is the whole world, the global. Our project‘s topic is about steak, and its called “A Steak”. We use steak to reflect the Global warming. When a cow were died, they can emission a lot of Carbon dioxide. Too much carbon dioxide production will accelerate global warming. When cow fart, they naturally produce carbon dioxide. Of course, there’s not only carbon dioxide in a cow’s fart, but also methane, and other substances. Methane is eight times more likely to be able to do so.These are all the factors that contribute to global warming and damage the environment. We want to use this video to appeal to people who are aware of the environmental damage of steak and hope that people can eat less steak.

In this project, what we need to improved is our knowledge and data part. We didn’t spend much time to searching the data. The whole time we were working on is AE. I think, we can add some more data in our video.
