Assignment briefQualification Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production Unit 1: Pre Production Techniques for the Creative Media IndustriesUnit number and title Unit 17: Audio Production Processes and Techniques (partial) Unit 24: Writing for Television and Video (partial)Start date 31/01/2012Deadline 16/03/2012Assessor name Iain GoodyearAssignment title IG2 - Short Film Pre-ProductionThe purpose of this assignment is to:Enhance your organisational skills by planning the production of your short film.Demonstrate the importance of sound in film production, looking specifically at how room acoustics canchange the nature of a recording.Develop your ability to edit sound bytes using a variety of effects manipulation techniques. Scenario Your team has secured funding and received the go-ahead for your short film, based on the theme Going on a Journey, which will be entered for the Exposures Film Festival. All media productions need planning. This process is referred to as pre-production. Pre-production is essential when realising your product and helps media producers to visualise and develop initial ideas. Pre- production is much more than simply writing a script and storyboarding and requires both a methodical and creative approach to planning tasks. Communication is essential when planning a production and you will need to ensure that your production team meets regularly to provide updates on pre-production tasks that are completed and outstanding. As part of your pre-production evidence, you must keep a record of meetings that take place and any decisions made and agreed on by your production team. In the production teams you were placed in for your last assignment, you have already produced individual proposals, treatments and draft scripts. As a production team you have also decided on which proposal and script draft you will further develop and plan. Further development of your chosen script will be decided through regular production team meetings. For this assignment you must research and assign production roles and produce pre-production documentation. You will be required to develop your chosen script, producing several draft scripts and a final draft. Your group must also produce detailed storyboards and production planning documentation in preparation for the production phase of your short film. An aspect of film production that is often over looked is sound recording. In preparation for the production phase of your short film you will explore through demonstration and practical activity the nature of sound acoustics and how this can affect the quality of your sound recording. Good luck! 1
