Preliminary Grade: With this task we learned how to edit and how to use the camera in a variety of shots and angles.
Opening Sequence draft 1 Draft 1:Grade: 1B We got this grade because our location and framing was very poor and our focus. We also didn’t use the editing techniques and transitions affectively. We now learned how to frame our characters correctly, found a better location.
Opening Sequence draft 2 Draft 2: Grade: 2C We had this grade because the flashbacks we was using was not affective and clear and our credits was not good. We now added extra flashbacks to be more specific on what we want to emphasize.
Opening Sequence draft 3 Draft 3: Grade: 2A/3C We have this grade because we didn’t do well on the titles and credits. We now learned where to put the titles and credits and we also use better fonts.
Opening Sequence draft 4 Draft 4: Grade: 3A We have this grade because we had good shots, and our framing was very clear and we used rule of thirds very affectively but our voice over was not correct We now have a new script for voice over and we added more shots.
Opening Sequence Final Draft Draft 5: Grade: A2 We got this grade because we had really good framing, filming appropriate material for the target audience. We now learned that we should have had a voice over for the male investigator and more variety of shots.
