  • 3. The still image cameras and the DigitalSLR’s were used to capture images whilefilming the documentary. The SLR’s wereused to take photographs for our printadvert.
  • 4. The video cameras were obviously usedto record our documentary, this includedinterviews, cutaways, montage footage,the title sequence and any other filmingwe needed. The cameras were highquality and produced a clear image.
  • 5. The lighting equipment was a cameratop light, which gave light onto asmall area of the shot and large freestanding light. This helped us to setthe right lighting for our interviewsand cutaway shots.
  • 6. The clip microphone was used tocollect audio from the person beinginterviewed. The microphone clippedto the inside of the persons top andpicked up what they were saying, togive clear sound in our documentary.
  • 7. The tripod allowed us to take smooth footageand gave the camera work a moreprofessional feel. It also allowed us to positionthe camera correctly when shootinginterviews to conform to the convention ofthe rule of thirds. The tracking dolly was usedwhen filming the title sequence. The dollyallowed us to move the camera alongsidepeople walking to give a smoother image.
  • 8. The recording equipment was used torecord the radio trailer, this was done inthe school recording studio to give aprofessional finish.
  • 9. The main piece of editing software we used was Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. The softwareallowed us to edit all of the footage we had captured. We were able to cut our footage to afraction of a second to get just the right shot. Audio and music can be added to footage, forexample in the title sequence. Footage can be moved around , sped up or slowed down. Wewere also able to add graphics to the image.
  • 10. We also used Adobe Photoshop to edit our print advert. This software is used orpicture editing. It allows you to manipulate images, add text and backgrounds. I wascomfortable using Photoshop as I had used it before. I was able to resize the image,using Ctrl+T and cut out my image, using the lasso tool.
  • 11. To edit the radio trailer we used Adobe Audition. This programme is used toedit audio clips. We were able to cut the clips we wanted and move them, wecould also add in music.
