Blogger We have used blogger to keep up to date on what we are doing regarding our thriller. We have uploaded all our research and planning on to our blog and also uploaded our thriller openings to our blog. This has been very useful as it helps us keep up to date with what we are doing and we can upload all our progress onto the blog.
Final Cut Express We used Final Cut Express to edit our thriller once we had filmed it which was a high standard editing software. This was very tricky at first but after a while it became very helpful when editing our films. We were able to put music and effects onto the thriller to make it look as good as it possibly could be.
Mini DV digital camcorders To film our thriller and preliminary task and research we used Mini DV digital camcorders. These were very easy to use and produced a high quality picture for our filming. From using the camcorders I have learnt how to use a camcorder and film high quality videos.
