Transcript

  • 1. Year 12 Media Coursework Exemplar OCR Electronic Evaluation Presentation On the opening slide you should put down the following: Unit G321 – Foundation Production and brief title, in this case: “The titles and opening sequence of a new fictional film.” Full name and candidate number Attach any images of the film to use in the background if you like, make it stand out and look nice. www.alevelmedia.co.uk
  • 2. Use no more text than this for each slide
    • Throughout the presentation, try to keep the style and theme of the slides interesting but not too busy.
    • Don’t cram too much into one slide, just use an extra slide.
    • You should really use a PowerPoint as an aide memoir, which means you have a series of points or statements that you can talk about or link to in more detail.
  • 3. Presentation methods
    • The following is related to using powerpoint, but you can also embed responses to some of the seven questions using this method on slideshare or authorstream .
  • 4. Word Documents
    • Unless asked specifically, avoid large pieces of text.
    • Embed documents on your blog or link from PowerPoint to sites like scribd.
  • 5. Video
    • Please attempt video blogs (vlogging) where you see most fit.
    • Upload your work onto a YouYube account or Vimeo.
    • Create a director’s commentary using VoiceThread
  • 6. Avatars
    • Don’t like to be on camera? Use an avatar
    • Narrate or use text to speech conversion tools at either Voki or readthewords.com
    • A fun way to liven up your presentation or blog – use animation scenes.
  • 7. Blogs and websites
    • If you’re presenting on a blog, read the presentation and then see
    • You could host your presentation on a website that’s easy to create and looks professional. Great for maintaining a theme
  • 8. Introduce yourself to the class and teachers/examiner
    • The whole presentation should be filmed for the purpose of moderation and allow Q & A from peers and teachers – allowing you to pick up marks if you’ve omitted certain details
    • Show your completed 2 minute film sequence by introducing the title and genre of your film.
    • You can insert a link to play the movie directly if you like or have it embedded on your blog.
    • For magazines – you should have all pages saved as best quality jpeg or pdfs.
  • 9. Putting your production on the web is the first step towards global distribution
  • 10. Using OCR as an example, the evaluation has seven questions.
    • Each one should be addressed using a different presentation method or technique to demonstrate creativity and skill through implementing use of ICT
    • For other specifications, use screenshots and web links to support your written evaluation
  • 11. 1 - In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
    • Devote at least 1-3 detailed slides to this.
    • This is your chance to summarise your genre research, including: what you found out; what types of codes and conventions were common in your chosen genre.
    • Make sure you cover the key concepts and use media terminology accurately at all times.
    • What opening sequences did you look at to help you – why were they useful? You can insert links to YouTube or other websites for specific references.
    • Reference all sources, and don’t plagiarise!
  • 12. Question 1 continued…
    • Explain how you developed your sequence to match that of real movies of the same genre (techniques, camera shots, editing, sound, mise en scene).
    • Have you tried anything different that challenges the genre or gives it new life?
    • Break your opening down into 9 key moments, like they do at www.artofthetitle.com
  • 13. 2 - How does your media product represent particular social groups?
    • 2 – 3 slides
    • How have you represented the characters in your films?
    • Is it positive or negative representation?
    • Did you use stereotypes?
    • How did you position the audience?
  • 14.
    • What were you trying to create, i.e., a new Bruce Willis or Halle Berry?
    • What technical skills helped you construct representation of your character?
    • Attach a screen grab or digital picture of your main character and talk about your choice of costume/make up/persona.
  • 15. 3 - What kind of institution might distribute your media product & why?
    • 2 – 3 slides.
    • What research did you do into Institutions (the companies that make the films)?
    • Why did you chose a particular company, what’s their ideology?
  • 16.
    • Mention and list the type of research sources you used, i.e., www.imdb.com
    • Did you use the institution logo at the start of the film or create your own?
    • You should talk about production, distribution and exhibition if you can.
  • 17. 4 – Who would be the audience for your media product?
    • 2-3 Slides
    • This is an opportunity for you to detail any audience research you have conducted.
    • Think about age rating and the BBFC, use their criteria to help you.
  • 18.
    • Give a profile of the type of person who would enjoy your film; similar films they like and would pay to see.
    • Did you conduct any questionnaires about type of films your audience like?
    • This is a chance to discuss any uses and gratifications and psychographic profile of your target audience.
  • 19. 5 – How did you attract/address your audience?
    • What was within your media product that appealed to them?
    • Relate this back to genre and conventions, will the audience be satisfied?
    • What other techniques made your film appealing?
  • 20.
    • Did you show your film to an audience for feedback? Put a link to YouTube here that attaches directly to a focus group or series of vox pops about your film and evaluate the type of feedback you have received.
    • What could be improved?
  • 21. 6 – What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing the product?
    • 2-4 slides detailing everything you have learnt from using technology.
    • List any technical difficulties you encountered.
    • What software and hardware did you use?
    • Did you realise so much work went into creating similar media products?
  • 22.
    • Assess your technical skills: are there any shots or edits you are really proud of?
    • What would you do differently to improve or alter your product?
    • Were there any limitations to your creativity?
  • 23. 7 – Looking back at your prelim task, what have you learnt in the progression from that to the final product?
    • 1-3 Slides
    • Insert a link to your original preliminary exercise, perhaps use voicethread or show screenshots.
    • Comment on how you found the preliminary exercise and describe what the hardest thing was to overcome?
    • Were you happy with it? Be totally honest and pick apart the good and bad elements of it. This is an evaluation.
  • 24.
    • How does your final 2 minute film opening demonstrate a progression in the standards of filming compared to your preliminary.
    • Again, you can use screen grabs to illustrate specific points or make a comparable.
    • Lastly, what do you think you have learnt from completing the coursework overall?
  • 25. Thank the class and teachers for listening to your presentation
    • Invite them to ask any questions and be prepared to respond to questions about your coursework.
    • Give yourself a pat on the back, you have completed 50% of your A level.
  • 26. Include all references
    • Comprising websites you used to help with research and planning
    • Voicethread, YouTube, Scribd, Wix, Slideshare links must be checked.
    • Include any other information or media that you feel is relevant to your project at the end, including acknowledgements and thanks linked to the project.
  • 27. If you’re blogging
    • Make sure you embed each question as a separate post
    • Use a different presentation method for each question (looks better).
    • Be creative, include images, hyperlinks and accurate references.
