Evaluation How did you use newmedia technologies in the construction andresearch, planning and evaluation stages?
I used new technology throughout the project but I also used a developed my skills onprogrammes I had used previously. Programmes like Microsoft office and PowerPoint are simple to use and have all the tools I needed topresent my work. I used slide share for the first time and this was a really easy way to present myPowerPoint presentations digitally. I also used blogger.com to present all of my work, I had used thisbefore so I knew how to use it but I learnt knew things like how to embed videos.
During the whole project digital technology played avital role. We used digital technology from the researchstages right through to evaluations. The internet was avery useful tool throughout the project but particularlythe research stages.The search engine Google was probably used the mostin researching genres, music videos and different artists.Youtube.com gave us easy access to loads of musicvideos. Social networking sites made it easy for us to getinto contact with our target audience to get feedbackon our own music video.
For the filming of our music video we used theCannon xm2 camera, using these cameras made thefilming a lot easier. Although we had to learn thedifferent functions on the camera, it was a lotsmaller than the older cameras and therefore a loteasier to carry around filming. Also using thecannon xm2 meant we could use a SD memory cardrather than a tape, which meant we did not have toworry about problems with the tape.To edit the footage we used final cut pro. This wasnot new technology to myself as I had previouslyused the programme. However I had learnt newskills and developed my knowledge on theprogramme. For example using colour correction toenhance the visuals which gave the video a lotbetter quality.
