How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages? How did you use media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages? Presentation Transcript

  • How  did  you  use  media  technologies   in  the  construc4on  and  research,   planning  and  evalua4on  stages?    
  • Without  the  use  of  technologies…   •  My  project  would  simply  not  have  been   possible.  Technologies  have  allowed  our  group   to  be  very  crea4ve.     •  We  have  used  a  range  of  open  source   soAware's  as  well  as  digital  equipment.   •  Technologies  have  allowed  us  to  create   broadcast  quality  texts.    
  • While  planning  and  researching,  here  are  some   of  the  programs  we’ve  used  for  our  short  film    
  • Blogger   •  Using  Blogger  has  been  essen4al  for  upda4ng  progress  for  our   film.  I’ve  made  sure  that  I  blog  every  step,  from  wri4ng  the   script  up  to  post  produc4on  in  the  edi4ng  suite.  I’ve  also   included  our  shoo4ng  schedule,  storyboard  and  the  weekends   we  have  been  shoo4ng.  Blogger  has  been  extremely  useful  in   order  to  keep  up  to  date  and  see  how  far  we’ve  come  since   the  beginning  of  making  our  short  film.    
  • •  Researching  short  films  that  have  a  similar  genre  and  story  have   given  us  a  much  clearer  idea  about  how  we  want  our  story  and   characters  to  be  constructed.  This  was  a  very  reliable  piece  of   technology  to  use  because  of  the  comments  received  on  their  short   films.  I  no4ced  a  lot  of  posi4ve  and  nega4ve  feedback  mostly  on   their  beginning  and  endings.  When  I  started  wri4ng  the  script  I   made  sure  that  I  took  these  cri4cisms  and  made  sure  not  to  put   them  in  our  film.  What  I  learnt  a  lot  from  YouTube  was  the   audience’  feedback  to  how  they  felt  towards  characters.  We  wanted   to  make  sure  that  our  central  character  (Blake)  was  a  character  that   the  audience  cared  and  sympathised  towards.    
  • Equipment   Our  equipment  has  been  the  most  important  factor  towards  the   visuals,  sound  and  ligh4ng  of  our  film.  We  used  the  Canon  600D  which   gives  us  1080p  video  at  24fps  (frames  per  second).  We  also  used  a   50mm  fixed  prime  lens  with  a  1.8  aperture.  This  gives  the  film  a   cinema4c  look  that  we  wanted  to  achieve  so  that  we  give  jus4ce  to  the   film.    As  we  had  quite  a  few  scenes  with  dialog  in  our  film  we  wanted  clean   crisp  sound.  We  used  the  zoom  video  recorder  and  a  RODE  boom   microphone.  We  also  wanted  to  be  able  to  rough  edit  the  clips  without   having  to  put  all  of  the  audio  in  first,  so  we  used  a  RODE  video   microphone  on  camera  for  added  quality  in  the  rough  cut.  
  • More  Equipment   •  A  very  important  factor  in  our  film  was  to  have  a  naturalis4c  look,   this  was  created  by  the  lights  that  we  used.  We  used  two  Zyon  SoA   Boxes  that  we  used  to  add  light  into  the  shot,  and  we  also  used   diffusers  on  the  lights  to  be  able  to  create  a  soA  feel.  Using  a  spider   steady  cam  has  been  a  major  part  of  our  film  showing  our  central   characters  emo4ons.  Tracking  shots  are  a  trademark  in  our  film,   inves4ng  in  a  steady  cam  has  been  a  brilliant  decision.  A  standard   tripod  has  also  come  in  handy  for  many  close  ups  that  we’ve  used.    
  • Edi4ng   •  To  edit  our  film  we’re  using  Premier  Pro.  This  is  an  advanced   piece  of  edi4ng  and  assembly  program.  Once  we  had  finished   our  shoots,  we  would  bring  all  of  our  sounds  and  video   footage  into  the  edit  suite  and  “batch  digi4se”,  we  would  then   begin  to  place  the  scenes  footage  into  the  breakdown  of  the   scenes  without  worrying  about  con4nuity  or  match  on  ac4on.   Once  this  was  done  for  all  of  the  remaining  scenes  we  began   the  rough  edit.  Finally  aAer  the  sound  edit  we  colour   corrected  all  of  the  clips  and  grade  them  and  export  the  final   video.  
  • Planning:   Using  Celtx           •  Celtx  is  a  media  pre-­‐produc4on  soAware  designed  to   for  crea4ng  and  organising  media  projects  such  as   screenplays  and  films.  Celtx  has  been  extremely   useful  for  wri4ng  our  script.  It  gave  me  the   opportunity  to  write  in  a  correct  format,  to  a   professional  standard.  It  was  a  very  easy  soAware  to   use.  It  provided  all  the  essen4al  tools  for  making   wri4ng  the  script  a  lot  easier.
