A2 media technologies evaluation

  1. 1. During the Research & planning, construction and evaluation I have used anumber of media technology to showcase and present my work, These are asfollows:
  2. 2. During my Research& planning phase I had predominantly used Google and YouTube, this isbecause I had research into similar or existing products which allowed me to get a betterinsight into trailers as this was part of the task, I had chosen four trailers which where ofdifferent genres, following this I was able to be a critic and reviewed each trailer on genre,shot types, lighting and impact on audience, by using these technologies I was able toresearch products, if I did not have these technologies then I am unable to do so, to inputthe existing trailers, I had used Microsoft PowerPoint to showcase my findings and whatmy thoughts where on the overall trailer, following this to I had used slideshare, whichallowed me to present my work in slides as I was unable to do it straight from MicrosoftPowerPoint, the code which I copied and pasted into wordpress showed up clearly, thistechnology allowed me to show all my finding and put it into one blog. Another technologyI had used for my research and planning was Prezi, this is a web-based presentation, whichlike slide share allowed me to input information but in a different style, this was keybecause if I did not have access to this then all my work would be word formatted.
  3. 3. Adobe premier proThis software allowed me to produce my trailer, if I did not have access to this then I am unable tocreate an effective trailer, Premier pro was the main software required, I was able to edit the clips to myliking, so if I wanted I could cut down the length of the clips to make it fast paced. I am also able tomake transitions such as dip to black, dip to white, cross fade and other techniques. Premier pro offeredand ensured that my trailer was finished to a high standard, it was imperative that these aspects whereavailable within the programme, if this was not available, then my trailer would be poor and will look asthey are a bunch images just placed beside each other, so by implementing the transitions I am able tomake the trailer professional. Throughout the creation of the trailer there where a number of issueswhich I faced this includes not loading the scenes appropriately and some scenes are not appearing onthe page, this was time consuming and eventually I worked out what was required to solve the issueSlideshareI have used slideshare to showcase a considerable amount of information into an easy format toview. I have used Slideshare in my evaluation and construction & development phase to show myuse of shots which I have not included as well as the technology which I used in this post to showmy use of ICT in research. As well as this I have included another evaluation which illustrates thesimilar conventions and whether I have disregarded or not.It has been extremely advantageous asI have used PowerPoint to create text and include images and then uploaded it to slideshare so itcan be viewed on my blog. This made my blog look neater and professional as all the elementscan be clearly seen
  4. 4. PreziThis was another tool which I used predominantly during my research and development, this allowedme present my work more effectively, rather than a standard piece of text, It is a presentation toolwhich allows me to insert information and images adequately, this was another way to formatinformation which proved to be successful, all I needed to do is copy the correct code and paste intomy blog.Adobe PhotoshopThis was another software which I used mainly for my ancillary texts, I had to construct themagazine and the poster as it had all the necessary tools which allowed me to create thesesuccessful products, Photoshop allowed me to develop my original plans that I roughly drafted onpaper, which stated where I will locate each element , using Photoshop I was able to edit the basesof both the magazine and poster, which were the pictures I used. I changed a number of things thisincludes the brightness, colour and the edits itself This allowed my images to stand out more andlook more suitable to the genre of my trailer. For e.g. I had to edit the title where I added a block andthe inner glow which made it stand out and look attractive. Photoshop allowed me to add differentlayers. I added different layers to ensure that I can input all the information appropriately. Differenttools also include, erasing, lasso tools, cropping and air brush tools to gain the required poster ormagazine effect I wanted. I did not have much of an issue with this particular software as I hadpreviously used this software and had an advantage when it came to creating the ancillary texts
  5. 5. Camera- CannonThis was used throughout the whole course and is the main technology needed, for my research anddevelopment phase I had used a camera to take images of similar products which I would gaininformation from, this was crucial as I would be unable to complete the task efficiently without it, thenext phase I had to take images of my draft plan and take other notes which where in relation to my theconstructions and development, it was important to show the stages which I had taken to from myoriginal plans to the main product, otherwise there is no evidence to show this, following this the maintrailer which was part of the task required a camera to take all the scenes, without it I am unable to takethe shots for my trailer, the quality of the camera was very good as it allowed me to take the imageswhich where of high quality, this in turn makes my trailer look as effective as possible and professional,again I did not have any issues regarding using the camera, as I have used it previously used it, all thebuttons where easy to configure and work out- this being the main part of the camera.Computer and laptopThis was most necessary as I had to use this for my research, construction and evaluation, thiswas the main element which was required as without it no information can be displayed, thelaptops where also used, this is because I was able to complete work out of school time, this wasimperative as I had to ensure that I have completed the task on time and meeting deadlines, Ihad used the standard computers for my research and development phase and had used theapple Macs to create my trailer, so this was very essential, I did not have much problemsregarding the computers apart from the school ones which often froze and I had to restart theprogramme.
