Question 4- How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages
Programmes In my media A2 project I used programmes like: Adobe Photoshop Premiere pro Internet Explore
Adobe Photoshop Adobe Photoshop is a programme I have used for two year for photography . When it came down to actually setting out a my DVD cover or my magazine cover I didn't actually know that much in how to use it. I liked to make my work bright and colourful with the use colour and layers. Start Finish The difference in my skills I learnt from this project really made me fell more comfortable i with Photoshop. From not using last year in my coursework.
In my work I used layers in my work in both my DVD and magazine cover. I used the internet help me find out how to use them. Of course the downside of this was loads of people had uploaded information and it was useless . This is a downside of new technology. Internet explorer
In my work the internet was big in the scene of using media 2.0 like YouTube to see other peoples work. Because Lego animation is done by anyone all over the world YouTube helped me to look how people had made videos . This was also an inspiration in my work. I communicated with my partner Aaron through Facebook and Windows Live messenger for organizing when to meet. In my DVD and magazine cover I used the internet to help me get images from Google to put on my work. I also need to get a Lego font from a website, this was something which was helpful and the use of the internet made my work exciting with videos and pictures. You could say this pushed my creativity in different directions.
Premiere pro This is the programme was for my video coursework. The way I used my technology in this for planning was my practices I did throughout my work. These where uploaded onto YouTube . This was the only programme I used for planning, main course work and evaluation. In my evaluation I used filmed a video response to Question 1. I think makes my work more personal and entertaining than just a word document. It is a benefit for me because being dyslexic I would of made spelling mistakes.
Technological Determinism Did I use the technology skilfully? If you look back at my first practic and compare it with my final piece of work, you can see the improvement in my work. This went down a lot to painiece. If the BBC was going to film stop animation cameras they would have huge film cameras and animation pro or Butterfly for what animators use. Of course there would be professionals like the time which made Wallace and Gromit. However the wonders with stop frame animation is there's a interactivity of people who make it in there spare time.
My production work was done by technology so. I could edit my work to show a change or make it look neat but I still had to explain why I did the change for example the picture to the right shows Jordon with Lego body this shows the change is well shown in my work. In my production work I was ale to get sound effects from different sites and using them in my production work. This was a free website and copy write free. Without these websites I wouldn't have enough with x-ray dog sound tracks Lego the product. This is one area in which a went into detail on the actual product. Without the internet I knew of this product because the company is a globalisation
Different files and sizes This is a folder I made in my documents with all the different files I had to have while I was doing A2 media. AVI files JPEG RAW PDF ASC PNG MHTML Word files
Different files and uses. A JPEG file is a file which is a compressed photo file unlike a PDF or RAW file. A PDF file is a in depth version of a 2D or 3D image. Uploaded to YouTube became URL. Turned into AVI file (Audio Video Interleave) Picture taken in JPEG format. This files change and become different files and have to be changed and moved about to get to what you need. This becomes aggravating and is a weakness on the technology.
The construction of my work has all digital elements. From the planning to my evaluation, At the bottom of the page are my two print final pieces and show the development and the how technology elements can produce a quality of work. The ability that any body all over the world could create this work with the basics technology and the basic skills shows how the technology is active audience. Putting this on the blog has to be sent to a website t change it to the right file for blogger
