6.What have you learnt abouttechnologies from the process of constructing this product?
BLOGGER• Blogger.com - Is used to keep record of each individual’s research, techniques and evaluation.
FREE PLAY MUSIC• Freeplaymusic.com - Is an uncopyrighted website where you can download different types of music for free that you can then apply to your film piece. We chose music from the action section but we had to note the composer in our credits.
TWITTER AND FACEBOOK• Facebook.com and Twitter.com - Are both social networking sites in which we used to arrange meet times for filming. Films are also advertised via the internet because it is cheap advertising and effective due to the large number of people who have access to it.
GOOGLE• Google.co.uk - Is a search engine which can be used in numerous ways. We used this to collect images, watch videos and gain access to other information needed for our piece for example the BBFC website.
TRIPOD• Tripod - Help keep the camera steady whilst filming to keep a professional look. The tripods size can be adjusted. At some points we thought that it would be better to shoot some of the shots therefore we had to use the camera by hand to give the scene a more realistic look.
IMOVIE• Imovie - Was the software we used on the macs to edit and produce our piece in post- production. You can change/add sounds and adjust the video effects on each clip individually. Using imovie made the editing a lot easier to edit our movie.
SONY HANYCAM• Sony handycam – We used a Sony handycam to film our final piece, using the handycam made film really easy and meant that we got the best results with our film.
IPHONE• We used the iphone to check and update the local weather so we could see when it would be appropriate to film.
BLACK MAC• We used a black mac to edit our 2 minute film, research similar products and get the music for our film.
