How did you use new mediatechnologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?
To create our production I learned a variety of skills through various software and equipment, new media has made it easier to create my project as it simplifies task and which good use and knowledge of the software it allows for a professional look. Using a variety of software and hardware has increased my knowledge and has encouraged me to learn further to insure I can create a high quality product to meet the brief.
Research and Planning To create our music video, initial research had to be included which included using the internet to use youtube to find out about other music videos, conventions they use and how we would use similar conventions in our own music video. Video cameras were used for the vox pox which were a group of people discussing there views and ideas in a video. Adobe premeire was used to edit this vox pox then upload to youtube and then put on our blogs.
Video Camera To make our music video we had to use a video camera to capture all the footage, this was a frustrating experience as it used tapes and if not used properly the files that had been recorded would be wiped instantly, also had to make sure we recorded at the right time of day to ensure that there was enough lighting so that the video was shot at a high quality which the audience would be able to view at a high
Youtube Youtube allowed us to post our videos online which allows others to view our content, this was used for our music video and also the vox pox which we created at the planning stage of our production
Tripod The tripod was a useful tool in creating a high quality professional music video as we did not want the camera to move about everywhere, this was an essential tool as without it, our video would look very shaky and we have some evidence of that on my blog of a camera with and without a tripod and it makes a big difference as adjustments could be made, panning shots were easy to create.
Camera To create our ancillary texts we needed a high quality camera to capture high resolution images which thus creating a more professional media product. The cameras were also used to take pictures of each other working to prove our roles within the group.
Iphone My iphone was used to capture audience feedback of my media product, also the sound cloud app allowed me to record and upload straight to sound cloud and then on to my blog.
Blogger To a certain extent blogger was the most important tool of our production as it held all our files and all our uploads in an organised manner, with an easy user interface. It allowed everyone in the group to track everyones progress, also with displaying everyones work
Slideshare Slideshare allowed us to share our work in presentation form to the website which then could be encoded on to our blog, where our powerepoint presentations get displayed. This was a great tool as it was a quick and easy service to use.
Adobe Premiere Pro We used this software to edit our music video, it was a fairly easy software to pick up and to learn, the software allowed us to create a high quality professional music video and also it allowed us to use such video transitions such as push and cross dissolve as they were used quite frequently
Bandicam This software was used to screen record my laptop while I was editing to show the changes and what I was doing as an individual in my group.
Microsoft Office I used Microsoft office to type up all my workings, from research and planning to evaluation, then used powerpoint to create a clear and coherent presentation.
