T hose who belonged to the social networking website, Facebook kept in touch through there.
As I do not belong to one I used my Mobile which has a software called WhatsApp. This is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allowed me to send unlimited messages, media and audia files without paying for SMS or multimedia messages to other smart phones
Through this I was able to talk communicate with all the members of the group and my actor, this was a fast and convenient way for fast replies.
Facebook was used to get the survey which we created on SurveyMonkey across to our audience,
When exercising the softwares we were to use we had the help and assistance of experts.
Lokmen Chekki , a former cameraman and assistant producer at the BBC and Yoshito Darmon another cameraman have helped us understand the uses of camerawork. We used Final Cut Pro to have a basic understanding on the functions it has.
They have both helped us gain a good insight into understanding the uses of a camera and things such as white balance. We did this using a filming camera and white paper.
When it came to animating, we used Flash CS3, at first it looked very difficult at first, however with lessons practising how to do this with Trevor Jarvis, a professional animator has proven otherwise.
Quick time is one of the most popular and versatile formats used around the world. It is accepted on most file sharing sites, including YouTube and Vimeo. We used this format for our final product so that we could share it with our target audience and anyone who may choose to watch it.
For the poster I had initially planned to use Adobe Photoshop, I learnt a how to use this, however I then decided to use to different software which I found to be easier to use and also had these softwares at home therefore was able to work on these whilst away form college.
I used Bluetooth from my phone which allowed me to connect to the iMacs and other mobile phones to send files through such as images of the actor agreements and film shoots.
I used the external hard drive which was assigned to each group – this allowed me to save all the work I did during the process of creating our film and radio trailer, we saved all our still images on this also
We used iMovie to create our opening title of out film, this software, had functions which helped us create an eye catching film title.
