For my project to work successfully, I will need to complete all of my work on time. As I am producing 3 separate products, I will need to manage my time correctly, and I plan to do this by working to a schedule. I will need to set a deadline for each section of research and production and aim to complete it as close to that deadline as possible.
This gives me over a month to shoot and edit my music video. This means that I will have enough time to produce a good quality music video, but still have enough time left to produce my album cover and poster as well.
I will have 11 days to improve my rough cut of my music video and add any extra editing I feel it needs. I plan t ask for feedback at this stage, so that I am ready to make any necessary changes later on in the year. It will also allow me to compare my video to other music videos.
Complete Album Cover & Poster Mock-ups- 15 th October
Whilst waiting for audience feedback, I plan to use my time to produce my album cover and music poster. I will look at existing covers and posters and try to identify common themes, so that I can make my own products as successful as possible. I plan to feature common themes between my products.
My mock-ups will, by this time, have given me some ideas and allowed me to make a decision about the designs I use. This means that I should not need very long to create my final products. However, I am giving myself 16 days so that I do not run out of time and produce a poor product.
After receiving feedback from my potential audience, I plan to improve my products based upon their opinions. However, I have decided not to spend too much time on this, as I need to improve 3 products, and so I will only take repeated requests into account, for example, if the majority of my feedback is based on the colours of my poster.
Evaluations & Further Improvements- 21 st November
This is when I will evaluate my products. I will discuss what I think of them, focusing on what I feel I did well, what I think I could improve, and what I found difficult when planning and making my work. I also plan to use this stage to make some final improvements before the deadline. This stage will give me the chance to make a final decision about whether I think I have reached my goals, and allow me a final chance to improve my work.
After completing my research, planning and production, I will hand my wok in to be marked. This will ensure that I know how to improve my products further. I will also know which areas of my work I should focus on, as audience feedback can only help me so much.
