Photoshop will be used to edit any images that are taken. This will mainly be used when we conduct our individual tasks whether it is to design a poster for the film or a double page film review that would feature in a magazine. Photoshop was chosen as we feel it offers the most advanced tools which will allow us to create a professional looking product.
Soundtrack Pro will be used when we are in the process of editing our short film. The majority of editing will take place on a mac; we therefore felt that this was the best software to use. As it not only offers free soundtracks and sound affects but also enables us to upload our own.
We will use final cut during post production, we have chosen final cut as it enables us to edit our footage and pick shot by shot the running of our film. As well as edit the colour, frame and sequence using the timeline.
We shall be using Microsoft word to type up our plans, research and any planning that we conduct including our letter of permission form. We will also be able to use Microsoft word to create our pre and post questionnaires.
We will use the online software of Scribd to upload any documents created on Microsoft word. Scribd allows us to present our work on the web quickly and easily.
Any photographs that we take will be uploaded to Photobucket before being edited this allows us to keep a record of our images. We will also be uploading any evidence of work to Photobucket.
This online software will allow us to create detailed brainstorms for our planning and research such as mise-en- scene and genre research.
Slide share will be used to upload presentations on our target audience and our graphs for post and pre questionnaire results. Sildeshare was chosen as it quick and efficient and also has a direct link to blogger allowing us to upload our work to our blog in a matter of minutes.
Blogger was chosen as each candidate within the group has previous experience of the software from their foundation portfolio’s it was therefore decided that we would use it again to keep record o. our project. It also allows us to upload work from various other sites such as Photobucket.
Microsoft excel will allow us to enter our results from both the pre and post questionnaire using a spread sheet which can then easily be converted into a graph or chart to clearly show our results.
This will allow us to access websites such as blogger. It will also enable us to conduct key research into other products and let us compare ours to another.
Though youtube we will be able to upload our first, second and final drafts of our short film and be able to view comments on how to improve our film and what the viewers liked and disliked.
