  • 1. Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production IG4 Assignment Production Diary PROGRESS UPDATE PLAN FOR NEXT MONTH / WEEK (Including Possible Contingency Plans If Problems Anticipated) Mon W/B 10/02/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) 10/02/14 First I booked video camera, sound recorder, clapper board and boom microphone. In the afternoon I printed the script and the storyboard at college so I can get ready and know what to do when I start filming. In the evening, I started filming at my house. I was the cameraman because the shots were hand-held and the sound-recorder was my boyfriend, Michael. The characters I needed were my mum, sister and my dog. We didn’t film all the scenes, just 2, 4, and 6. 13/02/14 We did more filming at my house in the evening, scene 10, 14, 16, and 18. I was the cameraman and Michael couldn’t be there that day so I asked my sister’s boyfriend Anthony to be sound recorder and he was happy to help. The characters I had were my mum, sister, cousin, auntie and uncle. 14/02/14 I brought the camera and sound recorder back to college, in the morning. I uploaded all the footage to my computer and saved them to ‘New Volume (E:)’ drive. I watched all the footage and renamed them to make it easier when I edited it. I kept the best ones and deleted the footage that I won’t need it or it is not good for my short film. I created a project on Adobe Premiere Pro but haven’t started editing it. After half-term, I am planning to sort the footage out by putting the film and sound together on Adobe Premiere Pro. Also I am planning to do more filming, some at my house and start the interview part. Then I am going to rename all the footage so we will know which is which when I’m editing it. So this will make it easier for me. If I can get it done in time then I can start editing. Mon W/B 17/02/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) Half-Term Mon W/B 24/02/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) 25/03/14 I went to see my tutor and I booked my video camera, sound recorder, boom microphone and clapper board to do more filming. 26/03/14 At my house, I did more filming for Scene 8 and before half term, I looked back all my footage and I felt that scene 10 needed to be done again because I wasn’t happy with my other footage so I filmed that scene as well. Next week, I need to do more filming on some interview scenes, the dropping camera/screaming scene, scene 12 and I need to out the sound and the video camera together.
  • 2. Extended Diploma in Creative Media Production IG4 Assignment Production Diary 27/03/14 In the evening, I filmed the interview scene and I needed a place that looks like interview room so I thought I could use my dad’s work place which was at Turnpike House. Once I got there, my dad showed the meeting rooms and I had to choose one and I picked a good room that will look more like interview. We filmed all of the interview scenes. 28/03/14 I uploaded all the footage on my computer that I have filmed that week and saved them to ‘New Volume (E:)’ drive. I watched all the footage and renamed them to make it easier when I edit it. I opened Adobe Premiere Pro and I imported all the footage and sounds that I wanted to use for my short film. Then once I got the footage and sound, I had to match it up and checked that it was correct. I deleted the original sound that was with the footage then once they are all right and together, I exported it and added the ‘SS’ an example, ‘Scene 1 Take 1 SS’. The scenes I did that day were 2, 4, and 6, scene 10 take 1, 14 and 18. Mon W/B 03/03/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) 03/03/14 I went to see my tutor to book my video camera unfortunately all the video cameras were booked up but I booked my video camera that day for next week to make sure I could use the camera. 07/03/14 I opened Adobe Premiere Pro; I imported all the footage and sounds that I wanted to use for my short film.

I finished filming all interview scenes. 12/03/14 In the evening, I was at my house and did scene 18 again because I didn’t drop the video camera before so I did it again and this time I ‘dropped’ the video camera. 14/03/14 I uploaded all the footage and saved them to ‘New Volume (E:)’ drive.

Mon W/B 17/03/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) 21/03/14 I did more editing on my short film and I ‘supposedly’ dropped my camera which would make a TV static effect. I have never used this effect before so I found a tutorial on ‘YouTube’ and I used ‘Adobe After Effects’ and followed the tutorial and then exported it out of ‘Adobe After Effects’ and imported it into ‘Adobe Premiere Pro’ and replaced the original footage. The T.V. static I created had no sound therefore I used the skill of converting sounds and found some T.V. static sound from ‘YouTube’. Next week, I am planning to find some background music that fits with the film. Mon W/B 24/03/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) 28/03/14 I needed to convert sounds because I wanted to add suspense music to certain scenes therefore I found the sounds on ‘YouTube’ and then used a website called ‘hddownloader.com’ which converted the music into a compatible file that I could put into ‘Adobe Premiere Pro’. At first I was unsure on what to do however I asked my tutor for some support, he showed me how to use it. I imported the suspense music and put it where the music should be. I am planning to book the video camera, sound recorder, boom microphone and clapper board. So I can film scene 12 and I also want to start creating subtitles.

He showed me how to use it. First you clicked ‘Title’ then ‘New Title’ and ‘Default Still’. It comes up with a scene where I wanted to put the subtitles. I had to choose which title style I wanted and where I wanted them placed. I did this for all the scenes. I finished editing the film.

Mon W/B 28/04/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) Berlin Mon W/B 05/05/14 (Detailed Weekly Summary) 08/05/14 I showed my tutor, my finished short film and he said it was good but he said I need to make a few changes so he advised me to introduce the sound better by having it slowly increasing at the beginning and at the end having it slowly fading out. I used the software called ‘Reaper’ which allowed me to change the volume. I tried to export my finished short film and upload on YouTube however the HD quality wasn’t good and I listened carefully to the sounds and some of them were too loud or needed little changes. 09/05/14 I changed the sounds and I was finally happy with my short film so I asked my tutor to help me how to export the short film with better HD quality. The result was much better than the first and I uploaded on YouTube. I was really happy how the short film looked. PROGRESS UPDATE PLAN FOR NEXT MONTH / WEEK (Including Possible Contingency Plans)
