Question 1a media exam

  1. 1. Exam- Question 1a<br />
  2. 2. Internet for finding out information and also getting images <br />Photography camera <br />Blog <br />Mobile Phones <br />HD camera <br />Future states Website for short films <br />MSN <br />Microsoft Word, PowerPoint <br />Slide share <br />Digital Technology <br />Hotmail <br />Sony Vegas <br />Adobe Premier Pro <br />Youtube <br />Photoshop <br />
  3. 3. Creativity <br />A2- comedy/drama/ family genre- tried a variety of shots – mostly stuck to the genre conventions <br />AS- psychological/ thriller genre- stuck to the genre conventions <br />Influences- Toy Story and Bagpuss for blockbuster films. Short Films- oktapodi<br />Influences- The Talented Mr Ripley, Cape Fear- looked at the way shots were done, <br />
  4. 4. A2- for research we watched short films on the internet,( future states). <br />Ancillary tasks- had to research in to magazines and film posters. <br />AS- for research we watched more opening sequences for films. <br />Animated films such as Oktapodi and Toy Story that follow have the same genre ideas as our production. <br />Research and Planning <br />The Talented Mr Ripley, Cape Fear, Fight Club, <br />Used blog’s instead of folders so organisation skills were much better <br />Due to lack of organisational skills there was not enough research and planning done. <br />Time management skills were much better <br />Researched Theorists and audience<br />
  5. 5. Preliminary- editing- no sound, couldn’t flip the image and it was upside down. Couldn’t save. <br />Used Adobe Premier Pro <br />AS- editing- sound was clearer. Transitions in to shots was clear. <br />Wasn’t long enough, so the titles weren’t that long either. <br />Used Sony Vegas Pro9<br />Shots were unclear. <br />Music was short. <br />Post – Production <br />A2- transitions in to each shot were much clearer. <br />Used Sony Vegas Pro 10 <br />Titles were blurry <br />Voice over were a bit muffled. Reversed soundtrack to increase length <br />After many drafts – ancillary tasks completed from word to publisher – paint to word and then to Photoshop and then to Gimp 2.8 <br />
  6. 6. AS- we followed the genre conventions for a psychological thriller but didn’t follow the character specifics. Had female representing the killer instead of a male. Majority of psychological genre conventions have male killers. <br />A2- followed the genre specific conventions however we had used stop motion instead of animation. Had a moral at the end of the film as is reflected in the films that we had been researching and looking in to so stuck to the conventions. <br />Using conventions from real media texts <br />Research allowed us to stick closely to magazine and poster conventions. Looked at the layout of the magazine and poster and followed the same ideas.<br />Preliminary – followed task set, used match on action and shot reverse shot, challenged it by using different locations. <br />
