The group used blogger to present the work and made it easily accessible
form any location and device. We were able to use blogger to keep the
group on task knowing what each member had done and not. Blogger was
used through out both pre and post production to post any coursework
top do with our production. Without blogger we would not have been
able to present the work using different medians for example uploading a
PowerPoint presentation to slide share which allowed us to embed it on
the group blog.
Final Cut Pro
Final Cut Pro is a Macintosh exclusive programme that allows users to edit
pieces of footage from a video recorder together. The editor of our group
used this software to edit our own footage. The editor used Final Cut Pro to
add sound effects different types of transitions and also find any errors within
the footage for example continuity mistakes. This allowed the final product to
have a professional finish to it.
Microsoft Word and PowerPoint
Both these software allowed the group to type up different pieces
of coursework. Word was used to create a text document for our
coursework in a neat form, while PowerPoint was used to create a
slide show style document providing new ways to present the
coursework. These two pieces of software were very useful as they
enabled the group to produce our work professional manner.
Scribd, Slideshare and Prezi.
Scribd enabled the group to upload word document which are then
converted into a Scribd document which allows us to embed the
document on to the group blog

also provided us with a code to embed the Slideshare file on to the

more creative presentations . This then allowed the group to embed
the finished presentation on the blog
Bubbl.us and PowToon
Bubbl.us and PowToon were both used for presentations the group
work. Both bubbl.us and PowToon are interactive pieces for software
that gives the audience more control on the information used.
We chose to use bubbl.us and PowToon because it allowed a diverse
way to present the work. Bubbl.us was used to create the brainstorm
presenting the process the group went through before selecting the
final ideas for each aspect of our production. PowToon was used to
create different animated presentations which were unique.
YouTube is video sharing websites which allows its usurers to upload
and share videos . We used YouTube to upload the production at
different stages, this allowed other’s to give us both negative and
positive feedback so we can improve the quality of the product. This
way our target audience have a direct influence in the production
allowing for a more successful outcome.
Facebook and Twitter
We used social networking sites like Facebook and twitter to
promote our short film. We were also able to post links of the
product in its different stages and the finished product so that the
audience can give feedback on what they thought of our short
