Evaluation Activity Question 6 What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? J’Nae Phillips
We used Photoshop to help enhance and inhibit our ideas. At first I was not good at using Photoshop, but then once having some practice I began to master using it and became quite good. Here are some of the Photoshop tools I used with a blanked page showing how Photoshop is set up.
Here is a photograph of the camera and tripod we used. I learnt how to use a camera and tripod well, controlling it and setting it up efficiently. These cameras were easy to use and this is a strength as it was our first time using cameras to do a substantial amount of filming. Here is a photograph of the redhead light we used in our production. This was harder to set up as its quite tall and you need to be careful using it because its very bright. A strength in using these lights is that they are very bright and useful as they create nice light and shadows.
To edit our complete opening to our thriller we used Final Cut Pro. I found this editing software easy to use with good sound and picture transitions. There were not really and limitations regarding the desired effect as we were able to achieve everything in which we wanted to do. My job was not the editor so I did not use Final Cut Pro a lot, but our editor mastered these techniques very well. We were also able to use music and sound effects very well to appropriately connotate particular moods.
