Evaluation Question 4 How did you use new media technologies in the construction and research, planning and evaluation stages?
Canon Digital Video Camera To film our music video we used our schools video cameras, which weren’t always available so we had to take extra care in our shooting schedule.
iMovie When it came to the editing stage of our music video, we used editing software known as iMovie which is exclusive to apple products. As we had used this software in the past we were familiar with it’s functions. Here are some of the uses we got out of iMovie (click the function title for more information: Colourisation
Digital Camera My Digital camera has been essential in the process of this project, as I have needed it for many purposes
GIMP 2 GIMP 2 is a photo editing software I used to edit photos for our ancillary task. Functions I used: Colourisation – In order to create a professional finish for the photos used in our ancillary task, I edited the contrast of the photo. Not only did this create a professional style but also made the photo match the grungy style produced by the quality of the video cameras used to shoot the music video. Text – I was able to add text to images which proved helpful as the software had a selection of fonts to choose from, which made the task of matching the font to the bands style quite easy. Morphing Images together- For Instructions on how I did this, review previous blog post entitled Ancillary Task . -Video Demonstrating GIMP in use

iMovie – Colourisation As our music video was planned to be in black & white in certain and scenes and in colour for others, so to do this we needed to select the specific scenes and then edit the brightness, saturation and contrast. To ensure that all of the scenes colour schemes matched we had to ensure all the colour edits were the same.
