Intro In our preliminary task, it was the first time I had used this equipment (camera and tripod) so it wasn’t as successful as I thought it would be. However with lots of practice, I have managed to improve my filming skills and I feel confident that I can film in a wide variety of techniques and understanding the techniques and what is authentic and what isn’t. First of all there were a few continuity errors which I later managed to take away. Checking equipment Storyboard Location
Camera Techniques We learnt that it is extremely important to get the use of Match on action, shot reverse shot and the 180 degree rule correct. We replicated filming well and in a professional manner. We did not break the 180 degree rule throughout the film.
Music/Sound We put music to the clip by having diegetic sound to the clip, we clearly show the actor turning the ipod on so it is obvious to the viewers and this enabled us not to breech any copyright laws. We managed to remove sound from clips or tone it down to create better atmospheres. We managed to incorporate other sounds to the clips, we used footsteps for going down the stairs to create an atmosphere of tension and fear.
Titles and Editing We learnt how to add titles to our work to show clear understanding of who is who and who did what. In our preliminary task we learnt how to edit clips and we incorporated this into this task. We demonstrated our editing techniques well as we have no faults in which are obvious to pick or we can find. We have developed our editing skills and made use of them in our main task.
