1. Black button is a short film about temptation . Where a guy has the choice to push a black button where it would kill one person in the world and will walk away with 10,000000 dollars or has the choice to walk away with nothing.

2.  I myself actually in joyed the short film and wish it was longer, the acting was not that bad but at the same time was not all that great, on the other hand tho, the story line was really good and has a good life lesion to it.

3.  The guy was tempted to push the button and he was taking to long to make a choice so the guy that was tempting him told him he now only has 30 seconds to think and the guy pushed the button what looked like without really thinking.

A look back at Web Design

I learned a lot in Com Tech, I learned about HTML coding, how to create a website, the elements of design, I leaned the basics of Photoshop, and how to do proper write ups. The elements of design are line, shape, texture, space, size, value, and color. It is important to have these elements in a design you are doing because it makes the design pop, it catches your audience eye and it makes it look proper.

Planing my website was hard at first but i got the hang of it. I never knew a website took that much work until i made one myself. What you need to know about to know about web design is that it’s not easy, it takes a lot of concentration and a lot of work if you want it to look right and depending on what you are doing.You also do need to know what elements of design are. Since growth comes with problem solving opportunities,three problems that i ran into during the weeks were i couldn’t get the right color for my name on the top left corner on the home page of my website the same color as the text. I fixed it by telling the teacher and she helped me. Another problem that i ran into was that my website wouldn’t publish, it kept saying there was an error, my teacher then again fixed the problem by changing the URL. The third problem hat i ran into was the tables for my links would always go to the center of the page, and not to top or bottom, i fixed the problem by changing the settings so it would go to the bottom or top of the page. Personally, i dont think i would do a bad job at being a web publisher because i have an eye for design, and i like to keep busy, but if i were to become one, my spelling and grammar would need to prove, using my time wisely and  not get distracted would also need to improve.
