  • 1. 
How did you use new media technologies in the construction andresearch, planning and evaluation stages?
  • 2. We used a variety of media productsto produce our 3 products whichinclude; iPads iMacs DSLR camera
  • 3. We also used a variety of programs to constructour media products, these include;Photoshop SoundtrackIllustrator iMovieWord MaharaPowerPoint iChatPrezi Final Cut
  • 4. DSLR cameraWe used a digital SLR camera to film the footage for ourteaser trailer. This was a more advanced camera then the flipcams that we had used to film our AS tasks last year. At thebeginning of filming for our A2 teaser we found it hard tofocus the camera and found it useful to clip on themagnifying attachment to make sure the focus correct. Asfilming went on we found the camera easier to control andthis developed our camera skills.We also used this camera to take the still shots for our posterand magazine cover. We found the camera was very goodfor adding depth of field which enabled us to focus on themain character, making him stand out from the background.
  • 5. iPads and iMacsWe often used iPads to write up For the majority of our post-journal entries on Mahara. They production work we used theare a quick alternative to the iMacs. We developed our IT skillsdesktop macs as they are quick and adjusted quickly to the appleto load up and easy to surf the controls. We did experienceinternet. The disadvantages of difficulties with the mouse on oneusing the iPads is that we could of the macs but we managed tonot add images on our journal adjust the settings and fix thisentries on them. problem.
  • 6. Photoshop (magazine)We used Photoshop in the early stages of developing our magazinecover: This was the original image that we shot using the DSLR We added the mast head on Photosho We cut out Kyri so that we could2 make the background colourful to match the colours often used on EMPIRE. We also changed the contrast of Kyri to make his character stand out more and make him more dynamic.
  • 7. Illustrator (magazine)3 4 We sent the Photoshop file to Illustrator and added all the headings and information. We also added conventional magazine parts such as the barcode, price, image s etc. It was fairly easy to use Illustrator to complete the text whereas Photoshop was a good program to use to change the colours of the original image
  • 8. Illustrator (poster) +Illustrator has been a big part of the creation of our poster. We used it todevelop and improve the images we worked with in Photoshop(combining two images to create a psychological effect of two of thesame bully). Illustrator was at the start, difficult to understand because ofthe complexity of the program, but we worked together as a team to helpimprove the overall effectiveness of our poster. We were able to add anddevelop the text we chose from the wide array available. One problemwe encountered was adding the billing block. We used the internet as away to research how to effectively create realistic billing block, helping toovercome our issue.
  • 9. Illustrator (magazine)3 4 We sent the Photoshop file to Illustrator and added all the headings and information. We also added conventional magazine parts such as the barcode, price, image s etc. It was fairly easy to use Illustrator to complete the text whereas Photoshop was a good program to use to change the colours of the original image

  • 11. Word (ident) We used Word to make our company ident that appeared at the beginning of our teaser trailer. We did this by using a combination of shapes and words which we then print screened as an image and added to our timeline on Final cut then animated. VCircle arrow + V in Chancery font
  • 12. Final CutTo edit our footage into teaser trailer we used Final Cut. On here wedeveloped our editing skills. We made a lot of our clips darker to set amysterious and dark tone for our teaser and cut the clips to add continuityand set the pace for our trailer.We did however experience technical issues half way through editing. Themessage that appeared said ‘general error’ and would not allow us to playour teaser back. We had to start editing again from the beginning but this made it easier for us to incorporate in the suggestions we gained form the feedback.
  • 13. iChatWhen we we experiencing technicaldifficulties during editing on Final cutwe used iChat to call the collegetech, Simon. This was very usefulbecause we could talk to oneanother discussing the issue andSimon was also able to take overour screen from his office in order totry and fix the problem.
  • 14. Soundtrack For the sound we used Soundtrack. On this program we could use a variety of copyright free sound effects and loops which we could easy overlay and cut to make an appropriate track to go with our trailer. When creating the soundtrack for our media piece we encountered some small issues which effected the efficiency of our work.We struggled to match the sound and the video together, but after somecareful mixing and fading we managed to resolve the situation. Also wedid not think that there was a wide enough range of sad piano loops whichwe wanted to use to set the tone.
  • 15. iMovieWe used iMovie to record various people from other groups givingfeedback about our first rough cut and also poster and magazine cover.This was a quick and easy program for recording and simple editing whichwas suitable for the Vox Pop. The program also allowed us export theproject straight to YouTube, making it easy for us to embed into ourjournals.
  • 16. We have used Mahara throughout our However all of our groupA2 coursework. This site allows us to have experiencedadd journal entries for each stage of our difficulties in embeddingproduction and post-production work a majority of our imagesand research. It also allowed us to as they appear as theembed YouTube videos and pictures white box shown above.straight into the post which was usefulin sharing our progress and finishedproducts.
